Make a holiday apartment in Sants your home away from home

Holiday homes in Sants provide connectivity and comfort in the shape of wi-fi and air-conditioning. And the many transport connections around holiday apartments in Sants makes it even easier to pack a wealth of sightseeing, shopping and culture into a short stay. You can even get to some fascinating places on foot, like FC Barcelona’s mammoth Camp Nou or Parc de Joan Miró, great for art lovers.

Things to do

-Museums. If you want to enjoy some culture then Sants is a fantastic place to be. With the “ArTicket” you can enter six of Barcelona’s top art museums – especially close are galleries showcasing the work of Picasso and Joan Miró. Elsewhere, Parc de Joan Miró has one of the artist’s stunning public sculptures, Woman and Bird, which is 20 metres tall. Meanwhile at Parc Montjuïc there’s the Mies van der Rohe Pavilion, an architectural structure dating from the 1929 Exposition, and a museum piece in its own right.

-Other sights. If there’s one man who’s made an impact on Barcelona’s cityscape it’s turn-of-the-century architect Antoni Gaudí. His eccentric art nouveau architecture adds whimsy to the l’Eixample district and can be admired at the breathtaking Sagrada Família church, as well as Casa Batlló and La Pedrera – all of which form one UNESCO World Heritage Site.

-Shopping. Carrer de Sants is one of Barcelona’s top shopping arteries and boasts all the famous high-street brands like Zara, alongside cafes and eateries that spill out onto the street. For high-end boutiques Passeig de Gràcia is the place to go, and if you’re looking for one-of-a-kind fashion on a budget then you’re sure to find something that suits you at Born in the Ciutat Vella.

-Beaches. When temperatures soars in summer, the beach is a great place to be. Much of Barcelona’s seafront is wide golden sandy beach, backed by fantastic amenities and patrolled by lifeguards. Barceloneta and Sant Sebastià are close, but one of the great Barcelona experiences can be had on a bike ride exploring the waterfront up to Sant Adrià de Besòs.

-Cuisine. On holiday in Barcelona you could take the chance to try some traditional Catalan dishes, like white beans with sausages, the dessert Crema Catalana, or the popular snack pa amb oli – bread rubbed with tomato and olive oil. Make for Barceloneta for excellent Paella, or the chic restaurants in l’Eixample to sample contemporary interpretations of traditional Spanish dish.

Weather in Sants

Visiting a Sants holiday home you’ll encounter a Mediterranean climate. This means long, warm summers, mild winters, and moderately warm weather for the rest of the year. The warmest weather spans the period between May and October. This is when you can expect daily highs in the 20s, getting close to 30 degrees in July and August. Rainfall is uncommon in July, but occurs towards the end of the season thanks to occasional storms. Winters are moderate, with daytime temperatures in the mid-teens and less sunshine than in summer.

Travel to Sants

To fly to Barcelona from Britain you can use El Prat Airport (BCN), one of the busiest airports in Europe. You can pick from a range of airlines serving this destination from the UK, most of which are low-cost carriers. Once you get there it couldn’t be simpler to reach Sants holiday accommodation. The R2 commuter railway runs direct from the airport to Barcelona Sants. If you’re closer to Plaça de Sants, then it’s just one stop from the railway station on the L5.

                                      Charming flat on a quiet street, near to the metro

                                      4 of 5
                                      Jaume was very prompt to respond when we had any queries about booking and how to get to the apartment. Anna- who met us at the property when we arrived was very helpful and recommended some restaurants in the neighborhood for us to try. She also told us about the St Jordi celebrations that would be happening during our stay. The check-in and check-out process was very quick and efficient. The apartment itself was really lovely and very good value in comparison with some of the others we had enquired about. It was exactly as it looks in the pictures. We particularly liked the gorgeous floor tiles and the beam-effect ceiling. The bathroom and kitchen seemed brand new and they had provided everything necessary in terms of utensils and kitchenware. (Though with so many restaurants to try, we didn't cook at home very much!) The bed was very spacious and comfortable. We didn't have cause to use the air conditioning during our stay as it was cool enough with the windows open. The balcony was our favourite feature of the flat. It's huge and extends around both external walls of the apartment. We loved the outside dining area and spent a few evenings out there with a bottle of wine. The only negative aspect of the entire stay, was that despite it being a pedestrian street with no traffic, we were on occasion woken by the refuse collection lorries, the roadworks in a neighbouring street and another unidentified banging noise quite early in the morning on several occasions. However, perhaps the noise wouldn't have been so intrusive if we'd made use of the air conditioning instead and had the windows shut. Unfortunately, my partner is a stickler for having fresh air at night. The location was also ideal because it was just a 5/10 minute walk from the nearest Metro station and from there you could make your way easily to the centre of town. There are also buses that depart from Carrer de Sants. Putxinelli's- the Italian restaurant on Carrer de Salou does fantastic, authentic pizzas and there are half a dozen restaurants and bars on Placa d'Osca. (In particular we loved La Mestressa. It had a great atmosphere, cool decor, delicious food, friendly service and nice house vermouth!) We'd also recommend Carrer de Blai for slightly less touristy tapas bars and montaditos for only 1 euro. Head to the very pretty Plaza Reial too for a lively atmosphere, cocktails, dining and people-watching. One final tip: book tickets for the Gaudi attractions online in advance!!
