This is great holiday home for 2/3 people. Everything you need provided & Anne Marie the owner is delightful, also the run through she gave on arrival proved very useful during our visit.We took our well travelled Roku stick (£40) for tv to access Netflix & NowTv (both by subscription). Short walks to sea,Ramblas & gothic area. Bus stops at bottom of road. There's so much to see & do to suit all ages and abilities. Carrer de Blai for amazing food & bars with great atmosphere only 5 mins away (Punjabi Bar veg paella & falafel dish were very tasty) We twice bought our veggie dinner from the famous Boqueria market on the Rambla (veggie pie x 2 & a great pre-prepared salad for €6). Lidl in the next street is so handy for essentials like bottled water. City bus tour-East €30 each, was a big disappointment so try other companies.On the plus side, the Casa Battlo tour which included smartphone type gadget, was a delight, be sure to move the screen up & down the rooms to see virtual reality bring the room to life. I'm a female in my 50's & not very athletic but I walked miles in the 2 weeks we stayed. There's so much to see it's a shame to be stuck on a bus. Best view was from the Miramar Terrace Restaurant on Montjuic, 30 mins steep walk from apartment but worth it. Went for just coffee day & night time & it's wonderful. The cable car station is next to it if you're brave enough. We stayed beginning of June which was ideal, I imagine July & August would get very busy, thats what makes the apartment ideally situated, it's near but not in the middle of the mayhem.
This lovely apartment is located just a 2 minute walk from a subway stop making it very convenient for sight-seeing. It is on a friendly lively street, however the apartment faces into the quiet courtyard at the back of the building. Supermarket is just across the road with everything you could need and if you like beer then the bar right under the apartment is a cracker.
Facilities were perfect for our 5 night stay and everything we needed was in the apartment and we would certainly stay here again. Comfortable bed and lovely shower. The balcony really made our stay, being able to have alfresco breakfast and drinks in the sun in the evening.
Lia is a wonderful host and could not have been more helpful, she went above and beyond to help us during our stay.
