About the property


A conserved, period villa situated in the midst of the 'lung' of Barcelona, the Collserola park, at a mere 15 minutes by train from the city-center, the Plaça Catalunya.

A beautiful, 1930s house, pleasantly situated in typically Mediterranean woodland with terraces. Recently restored maintaining its original, officially catalogued style. Unbeatably situated within the metropolitan area of Barcelona and in the midst of the Collserola Nature Reserve, at an unbelievable 15 minutes by train from the Plaça Catalunya and at only 3 minutes walk from the nearest station, Les Planes. Surounded by nature, wildlife and silence, yet maintaining the advantages of a great city, the house is ideal for combining work and holidaying, creativity and culture activities or simply enjoying moments of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Consisting of two-floors, the house is spacious and comfortable. On the upper floor there are 3 bedrooms and a small studio, a bathroom and a terrace with lovely, parkland views. On the lower floor there is a self-contained single bedroom, equipped with a shower; a living room with a sofa-bed; an American style kitchen-dining room; and a hall. A spacious garden terrace surrounds the house which is itself, surrounded by mixed woodland and attractive villas. On the garden terrace there are numerous spots in which to relax and read, chat, play table-tennis or make bar-b-ques. Surrounded as it is by trees, the house is cool and fresh on summer nights.

Beautiful villa in the lung of Barcelona city
average rating of 4.857143 based on 28 reviews

A peaceful retreat.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely warm house which seems a world away from the excitement that is Barcelona - but in fact is only a short and easy train journey away. We (a family of four from New Zealand) stayed here for a week and it was wonderfull to be able to return to this peaceful house after a days sightseeing.

Très belle semaine de vacances.

made our holiday ideal

  • 5 of 5

Landlord cristina was so nice and helpful. she recived us on the first day and made sure that everything was ok for us.

It was a really Beautiful location ,ideal for us as we where searching to spend a holliday out of pollution.

It was just what we where looking for . As its a clean and lovely relaxing spacious house.

I would definitely recomend this place for families with kids as my little nephew really enjoyed. he was runing around the house the hole time until he had no energy left.

we had a wonderful holiday and probably be back next time we come to Barcelona.

이곳에서 스페인 가족여행을 즐겁게 보냈어요!!! 집주인 크리스티나는 정말 친절하고 떠나는날 까지 우리가족이 편하게 지낼수 있도록 배려해 주었어요. 첫날 우리가족을 반갑게 맞이 해주시고 집안내를 해주고 혹시나 우리가족이 불편한 것이 있는지 때때로 전화로 확인해줬어요. 뒷 가든과 앞에 테라스, 거실과 방4개, 샤워실과 욕실은 지내는 동안 불편함이 없이 넓고 깨끗했어요. 특히 2층 테라스에서 가족이랑 와인도 하고 앉아서 스페인 날씨도 즐기기하고 뒷가든에서 바베큐 파티도 하고 친척동생도 답답해하지도 않고 잘 뛰다니면서 잘 놀더라구요. 이렇게 넓은 공간을 좋은가격에 빌려서 너무 좋았고 집주인도 너무 친절해서 다음에 또 가족이 스페인 방문하게 되면 여기로 꼭 머물생각이에요!!

Charmante et très belle maison atypique

  • 4 of 5

Maison agréable , proche du cœur de Barcelone , bien équipée.

Un accueil chaleureux de la propriétaire qui parle le français.

Petit désagrément, les chiens du voisinage parfois trop bruyants.

Attention l’accès à la maison se fait par des petites rues étroites et notamment un passage sur un pont exigu.

Je recommande cette maison a tous ceux qui souhaite passer de bonnes vacances en famille....

Nearest Airport
12 Kilometres
Barcelona El Prat (BCN)
Nearest Train
50 Metres
Car: not necessary

(Text automatically translated) Easy access and connection to points of interest

The area is has a rich diversity of flora and fauna. A car is not essential as the house is a mere 3 minutes walk from the station, whose trains, being a curious hybrid between underground and overland trains, arrive at an average frequency of every five minutes, and connect the house with the most interesting places of the city. However if what one desires is to get to the beaches, Sitges or Castelldelfells, for example, they can be reached in only 20 minutes by car on the excellent road network. There are also several outdoor swimming pools nearby; only a few meters away, a small grocery store; and 10 minutes away by car, a shopping mall with a giant supermarket. Apart from kilometres of lovely forest walks other leisure activities in the area include playing golf, horse-riding. Information regarding the area can be found at the forest's administration and information offices to be found in the near vicinity, including sites of historical interest, such as the house of Jacinto Verdaguer, the hermitage of San Medir or the monestery of San Cugat, among others.
