Things to do

-Attractions nearby. There are lots of interesting things still intact from Barcelona’s International Fair in 1929 – one of these is El Poble Espanyol, a scale recreation of a typical Spanish village. Inside is the Fran Daurel foundation, displaying art by a number of famous Spanish and Catalan artists. Also a short walk is the Magic Fountain of Montjuïc, an impressive illuminated fountain, best seen at night.

-Famous sights. A tour of Gaudí’s fairytale architecture is one of those things that every visitor to Barcelona has to do. In the north is Parc Güell, a colourful and offbeat garden complex originally intended as a new neighbourhood. Heading down to Eixample is the curvy residential masterpiece, La Pedrera, while the Sagrada Família is a jaw-dropping church, bursting with whimsy.

-Shopping. Hostafrancs Metro station is set on Carrer de la Creu Coberta, which, conveniently, is one of Barcelona’s main shopping streets. It’s a place where local amenities like cafes, butchers and bakeries coexist with international fashion brands. To really shop like a local, drop in at Mercat de Sant Antoni, a beautiful covered market with row upon row of stalls selling meat, vegetables, fruit, and other regional produce.

-Cuisine. Pintxos, the Basque version of tapas, is a great way to enjoy a laid-back meal, and close to Hostafrancs Metro is Zarautz, an authentic Basque restaurant serving imaginative variations on the pintxos theme. Also local are Thai restaurants and noodle bars, and you could hop across to Eixample for high-end dining, Catalan-style .

-Camp Nou. Anybody with a passing interest in football will know that this capacious 98,000-seater stadium is one of Europe’s top sporting landmarks, home to the ever-successful FC Barcelona. If you’re in town between September and June you might be able to catch a match – or you could just take the stadium tour, which also comprises shops and a museum devoted to the club.

Weather in Hostafrancs

Barcelona has the warm summers that you’d want from a Mediterranean destination. What makes it unique is that there’s a smattering of rain, even at the height of the season. It’s this humidity that helps keep the parks and trees looking green throughout the year. Visit a holiday home in Hostafrancs in summer and there’s lots of hot weather in store, so it’s best to bring protection from the sun. Winters are cooler and damper, but there are still lots of sunny days, even in December. In this season a light jacket will probably suffice during the day.

Travel to Hostafrancs

El Prat Airport (BCN) is the way to get to Barcelona from abroad. It’s a vital transport hub for Catalonia, and gets numerous daily flights from a host of places throughout the UK. Once you land you’ll find the trip to your holiday rental in Hostafrancs to be blissfully simple. Catch the R2 commuter train to Barcelona-Sants, which is around 700 metres from the Hostafrancs area or one stop on the L1. The Aerobús, which leaves from the arrivals terminal at El Prat, stops at Plaça Espanya, which is adjacent to Hostafrancs Metro station.
