Can Simon

  • 5 of 5

We visited our daughter who lives in Gracia and we're struggling to find a last minute affordable place to stay, when we came across Can Simon. We expected it to be a trek to the city, but were pleasantly surprised by how easy and close it was. Literally fifteen minutes on the Metro to Placa de Catalonia. There is a ten minute up hill walk from the station, but it's so worth it. Can Simon is high up with beautiful views and feels like you're in the Pyrenees not minutes from the city. It's a compact, yet spacious little house, tasteful and welcoming with everything you need. My husband and I were really comfortable here and there was plenty of room when my daughter and partner came over. The family were lovely, we were picked up from the station on our first night as we arrived late, which was really kind. Make sure you take a few essential supplies as ithis is a residential area and there wasn't a shop nearby. We will be back, if only to see Moof, the family's gorgeous and friendly dog.

Bright, cozy house on the outskirts of Barcelona

  • 4 of 5

Quaint house on a hillside surrounded by trees in a suburb of Barcelona. Wonderful hostess/host that were willing to accommodate our travel times and provide information and are a pleasure to talk with! They care for the property like it's their own private residence. Felt like we were staying with family or friends. The house is close to the city, but away from the bustle - just a short walk and a short train ride to downtown. Large terrace and foosball table outside provided our small kids with entertainment and a pleasant place to eat an outdoor meal. Private entrance and parking space on the street. The small kitchen was adequately-equipped for simple meal preparation; some cooking utensils were well used and could be replaced. Beautifully tiled bathroom with tub (much appreciated for small children); bath towels are quite worn and blow dryer did not blow warm air. Living/dining area is cozy for conversation, with loveseat seating for two but at an awkward angle to the television. Table is large enough for a family of four. Good lighting in the house. Master bedroom is a large, open loft area with comfortable bed, dresser, and hanging clothing area. Pillows on the beds are quite thin, but blankets and sheets were in good condition. Overall a pleasant stay. Thank you!

Sehr zu empfehlen!

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Familie mit zwei Kindern, 6 und 8) haben hier zwei wunderbare Wochen Anfang Juni verbracht. Das Häuschen ist nicht besonders luxuriös, aber sehr hübsch und mit allem ausgestattet, was man braucht. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und aufmerksam, man sollte allerdings Hunde mögen - der unglaublich liebenswerte, ruhige Hund der Vermieter kümmert sich gut um die Gäste! Das Domizil ist sehr gut geeignet für Ausflüge nach Barcelona (S-Bahn, 15 Min. bis zur Stadtmitte), Wanderungen in den angrenzenden Nationalpark und mit dem Auto zu Zielen wie z.B. Kloster Montserrat. Ein Auto ist nicht Pflicht, aber sehr zu empfehlen. Insgesamt gerne wieder!!

für Barcelona-Besuch gut geeignet

  • 4 of 5

Das Ferienhaus befindet sich neben dem Vermieterhaus, allerdings mit separatem Garteneingang an einem recht ruhigen Ort, quasi auf dem Hausberg von Barcelona namens Tibidabo. Von da aus sehr schnell Barcelona-Zentrum mit der S1/S2 zu erreichen, was auch sehr zu empfehlen ist, denn (auch kostenlose) Parkplätze im Zentrum zu finden wird etwas schwierig, geschweige davon in den Schrägen richtig sicher parken zu können. Diesen Stress würde ich einfach vermeiden. Der nächste Supermarket - sogar mit ausgesprochener Fischabteilung - findet im benachbarten 3 km entfernten Ort namens Vallvidrera.

Das sauber im Empfang genommenes Haus verfügt über alles Notwendige in der Küche, Bad, Wohnraum, Terrasse und Schlafräume. Eine sehr kleine Dusche, aber mit super heißem Wasser und Wasserdruck, was wir sehr genossen haben nach einem anstrengenden Marschtag. Heizung in kühlen Nachten kann man einschalten. Schade, dass der Schlafraum im ersten Stock nur teilweise vom Wohnraum abgetrennt ist, über eine sehr schmale Wendetreppe verfügt und doch etwas zu kleines Doppelbett hat. Die Terrasse ist sehr groß, barfuß angenehm begehbar und man bekommt ab und zu einen Besuch von dem besten Hund der Welt, der sich wie ein Beschützer neben der Eingangstür legt und alles aufmerksam bewacht. Dadurch haben wir uns sicher gefühlt. Internet ist leider zu langsam für unsere Verhältnisse und der Router stürzt häufig ab.

Ich nehme an, dass die vom Vormieter besorgte Sachen nicht "enteignet werden", sondern im Ferienhaus verbleiben und der nächste Mieter diese Besorgungen weiterhin verbrauchen kann. So haben wir Klopapier, etwas Kaffee, Salz, Zucker und Waschpulver im Haus vorgefunden und unsere "Einkaufsreste" für die nächsten Mieter auch dort gelassen.

Die Vermieterin hat fürsorglich und diskret nach unserem Wohlbefinden gefragt und Tipps gegeben, unsere Privatsphäre aber strickt bewahrt. Das war uns sehr wichtig. Außerdem haben wir zwei Hausschlüssel-Sätze erhalten sowie einen Zugangs-Schlüssel zum Parkplatz neben der Bahnstation, was sehr nützlich war: das Auto war gut direkt neben der Bahn abgestellt und man brauchte nach dem anstrengendem Tag nicht mehr bergauf zum Haus zu marschieren.

Ich empfehle dieses Haus jedoch nicht den Familien mit Kleinkindern und Behinderten, weil die Terrasse nicht kindesgerecht ist und der Zugang zum Haus über mehrere Treppen erfolgt. Jedoch ist es zu empfehlen an Paare, die Barcelona und ihre Umgebung kulturell sowie gastronomisch erkunden wollen.

Beaucoup trop court

  • 5 of 5

Agréable séjour, mais hélas trop court. Logement impeccable et les propriétaires très accueillants et serviables. Logement retiré de Barcelone comme on le désirait, idéal après une journée passée dans la foule. Un grand MERCI aux propriétaires pour leurs attentions et à leur fils qui nous a même aidé à porter nos bagages. Je recommande vivement et espérons pouvoir y retourner un jour.
