Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in El Guinardó - Modernist Villa from 1904

Newly renovated in early 2015 with 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms

This stunning modernist house from 1904 was renovated in early 2015 in keeping with its original features (high ceilings, mosaic floors, and coloured china closets) and modernising the kitchen and bathrooms with current fixtures and fittings. It is close to the Sagrada Familia and Saint Paul's Hospital, both world-famous monuments, and well connected by metro (Lines 4 and 5) and by bus. It is a stone's throw from the old town and the beach with supermarkets (including Carrefour), restaurants, and shops in the surroundings. On entering through the hall, you come to the living/dining room boasting two comfortable couches, which are great for watching TV or chatting, and a table with extension for enjoyable dinners. Having gone through a small gallery overlooking the garden, you come out to a large terrace with garden furniture and stairs that lead you to the house's garden with fruit trees, aromatic plants, and a private pool. Enjoy the fresh air on the hammocks and outdoor sofa. On each side of the living/dining room, you can find the four bedrooms. They are well lit and furnished with exquisite flair. One has a double bed, two features two beds that link together, and the fourth has a single bed while connecting indoors to one of the other bedrooms. The modern kitchen has everything you could ask for. There are two bathrooms: one is comprehensive with a bath/shower and the other, which is smaller, offers a shower and a WC. This special house offers unforgettable stays.

About Maria and Antonio

The villa has been in the owner's family for several generations. The person attention and renovations have served to adapt it for modern comfort while highlighting its modernist archithectural features .

Maria and Antonio purchased this house in 1904

Why Maria and Antonio chose Horta Guinardo

Its great architectural beauty and its garden make it a peaceful haven in the bustling city.

What makes this house unique

This is one of the few villas in Barcelona's beating heart with a private garden and sun terrace. You are only a few minutes from the historic centre, the monuments, the shopping centres, and more besides, using the nearby metro stop.

This place is flat out amazing. Pictures just do not do it justice. It's spacious and comfortable. Located in an great area we had no problems using public transportation to get just about anywhere we wanted to go and there was a huge market within walking distance. Maria and Antonio are also great people which made the experience all the better.

Our stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better accommodation for our stay in Barcelona!

Upon our arrival we were greeted by Antonio & Maria and shown the entire property. They made themselves available during our stay for anything we needed which was very helpful in getting our bearings.

The Villa is very clean and well appointed - we had everything we needed. The website description and pictures are 100% accurate.

Metro access within two blocks was very easy to use and gave us convenient access to all the sites.

We found the pool a very welcome and refreshing feature to offset the Barcelona heat!

We highly recommend this Villa whether you are a family or a group of adult friends getting together to share an experience in Barcelona. Book this Villa now, you will not be disappointed!

beautiful property with great out door area

  • 5 of 5

The villa is beautiful and very comfortable. The out door area was great for both outdoor dining and relaxing and cooling down around the pool after full days of sightseeing around Barcelona. It was our little oasis in the hot busy city. The metro was close by making it easy to get around.

It was perfect for us.

  • 5 of 5

Maria and Antonia's place was perfect! We loved the garden and then deck. It was so clean and looks just like the pictures. The location was close to a metro station so it was easy to get anywhere. Just down from the villa are markets and a bakery. The location provided a little break from the hustle of the downtown. We were traveling as a family of six so it gave us some space to move around and relax. If we were to go during a warmer time the garden pool would have been a nice little place to soak. It is beautifully maintained and the villa is nestles right in the middle of the hills and a nice suburbial type area. Maria and Antonio were easy to work with and everything went so smoothly. We would definitely stay there again.

Owner's Response: Andrea and her family are lovely guests. We had a very fluent communication from the very beginning and during their stay they were very careful with the house and the garden. We will be delighted to host them again in the future!

Lovely Villa to explore Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My wife , myself and our two gown up children have just spent a delightful six days at the villa. Maria and Antonio are a charming and approachable couple with excellent English.

We agree with all the observations in Tad B's review but would add a few extra comments .

- We found using a taxi to and from the airport very convenient, about 35 euro and 35 minutes journey.

- If you are doing your own cooking we recommend the food market above the local supermarket, fresh fish, poultry, meat and vegetables, high quality.

= Metro journey only about 10 minutes to the centre of Barcelona

- Be assured that the description and pictures of the villa are true and accurate.

Many thanks

Perfect Villa for your Family Trip

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Antonio's and Maria's villa for around 11 days in September. I recommend this villa without hesitation. The location is in a quiet and safe neighborhood a mile or so from the center of Barcelona. So, it was a great little oasis for our family where it was easy to explore Barcelona and the surrounding areas.

Maria and Antonio were very easy to work with and took great care of our little family.

Here are some additional highlights:

-Super market within a 5 minute walk of the house which had everything we needed to prepare meals, etc.

-L4 subway station within 5 minutes of the house which gave us a single train to the center of Barcelona and the beach

-Close proximity to parks for the kids

-The pool was great and the garden was peaceful and private

-The house was clean, comfortable, and unique

-Nice cafes and restaurants a short walk from the house
