I had an absolutely wonderful five week stay in this beautiful "Sobre Atico" apartment in the Sant Gervasi neighborhood of Barcelona! The apartment is full of light, thoughtfully laid out, and spotless. The owner, Cristina, is kind, friendly and always helpful and available. The apartment is at the top of the building, so it is quite quiet. There are two terraces--front and back--where you can have your coffee or a candle-lit meal. The layout of the apartment is great for two people or two people and a child, with spaces to socialize or be alone. The kitchen is beautifully designed and has everything you need. This apartment is simply a lovely and comfortable place to come back to after a day of sight-seeing. I also loved the neighborhood of Sant Gervasi. It is quieter and more residential than other parts of Barcelona, yet extremely convenient to metro and bus lines that take you everywhere around the city. In addition, everything you need is literally right out your door--from a bakery to a well-stocked grocery store to a "dollar store" to clothing and shoe stores...and of course, restaurants and tapas bars! There is also a lovely "placa" where you can have "a coffee" and people watch. Sant Gervasi also has two must-see tourist spots: the funicular to the top of Tibidabo (amusement park, gorgeous church, amazing views) and the Gaudi-designed Torres Bellesguard. There is even the top-rated and delicious (we ate there our last night) "Restaurant La Bonanova" two doors down. I highly recommend this apartment, the location, and our host, Cristina!
