The property was accurately represented, and in general fully met our needs. it is spacious and well maintained. We were also very impressed with Catalunya Casas, who were extremely responsive to the minor issue that we had, correcting them very promptly. We have had other rentals where the manager was not responsive - this organization is a model for being easy to reach and very quick to respond. For people whose interest is not in Barcelona itself, this is a great location from which to explore Catalonia. We had an easy drive to see scenic towns in the Pyrenees. In addition we found good restaurants in Barbera (easily walkable) and Sabadell (a short taxi ride), including several recommended by the property managers. We very much enjoyed our stay here.

It is hard to describe how beautiful this villa really is and was spacious enough for our large party. A weekend wasn't long enough and we didn't want to leave. Gemma the hostess is so accommodating and went above and beyond for us. This has been such a memorable trip we are already planning our next one here. Do not hesitate to book this villa!
