Hello! We are normally very quick to respond to any questions so feel free to ask :)
We are right in the centre of Barcelona, forgive me if I ramble about the nearby surroundings- there is just so much to say!
What we offer:
A 30 min walking tour in the Gothic quarter around the apartment for inside tips on Catalan traditions, Spanish culture, great restaurants, nice cafe's, funky bars, historical sites, Gaudi buildings and great things to see and do in Barcelona.
A selection of fresh fruit and water.
Tea and coffee at anytime (self service).
I will provide clean towels, sheets and a fan (Barcelona is hot during the summer!)
There is also toilet paper, soap, washing powder for your clothes.
Guests have full use of the kitchen, which has all modern appliances i.e. fridge, oven, cooker and cooking utensils.
There is also the washing machine if you need it, and of course the kitchen is available if you don't want to eat out. There is a shower that has hot water 24 hours a day and my grandmother, Rosa, cleans the house every day.

About the location:
The apartment is located in the centre of Barcelona in the 1st District “ La Ciutat Vella”, it is in the heart of the Gothic quarter next to "Plaza Reial" with lanterns by Gaudi and a step away from The Famous pedestrian boulevard " The Ramblas" (The main street in Barcelona) with Gaudi's building "Palau Guell" 1 Min away. We are situated close to most of the well-known tourist attractions.
The apartment is on "Escudellers street" famous for having its old restaurants and Catalan Tapas bars. There is also ‘’Plaza St. George Orwell’ (locally known as “Plaza Tripi"), all around the corner. The nearby streets contain many of the city's most emblematic buildings.
The narrow, winding streets create quite a labyrinth meaning it can take a while to get one's bearings! I recommend that you should always look up and around in case of missing some of the nicest sites.
The Gothic quarter has plenty of peaceful squares (plazas) where you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. If we are around during your stay I will gladly take you on a tour of the neighbourhood so you can find your feet here!
Transport is easily accessible in this part of town (metro, taxi, bus). However this quarter is relatively small and most of the city’s attractions are a walk away distance.
Getting to the apartment couldn’t be easier with the shuttle bus leaving the airport regularly to “Plaza Cataluña”. The apartment is roughly 12 minutes walk from Plaza Cataluña down the Ramblas. Or alternatively one stop on the metro to “Liceu” L3 (green line) leaving you a minute away. There is also a taxi stand 30 meters down the street plus 24h underground parking.
My girlfriend and I have been living here on and off for about 4 years. We have a 3 year old little girl called Jasmin. Anoeschka is Irish, I am half Spanish and English and we just love to travel and meet new people! We also adore languages and between us speak Spanish, French and English :)
For any further information please contact us - we will be willing to help in any way possible!

Flo and Anu were fabulous! They were extremely helpful when my phone got stolen and I would never have managed to find the police station and sort our giving a statement without them - truly hosts that go the extra mile. Also thanks to Cathy and Carlos for helping me get to the train station when I left.
