Our home

We built this house with a very well known architect (who is also a good friend) four years ago.
It has five floors, a back patio with many plants with a mini pool where one can refresh in the summer and a garage.
In the basement, there is a TV room (the TV has a big screen), a bathroom, a laundry room and my photo studio.
In the street level (ground floor) there is a semi open kitchen which overlooks the patio and is fully equipped.
Furthermore, this is where we find the spacious living room and a small bathroom.
Going up the stairs (there is also an elevator) to the first floor you find the first bedroom, with a double bed and an ensuite bathroom.
In the second floor there are two bedrooms, one with two separate beds and another one with a double bed and ensuite bathroom. There is also another bathroom for those staying in the twin room.
In the third floor there is a guest room with a double bed and an ensuite bathroom as well as a terrace which overlooks the patio. There is also a second terrace for drying clothes in the sun.
All the bedrooms are a comfortable size and have lots of light since they have very big windows.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of 6 , My husband is a lawyer and I am a photographer, we have three daughters 34 , 26 and 24 years old and a son who is 22 years old. Three of them live with us.
    We may travel alone , with one, two, three or the six of us.

    We also have a small place by the sea in a typical fishermans village in the Costa Brava (1hour and a half from Barcelona). The great thing is that it is litteraly on the beach, as you can see in the pictures. This place is also available for swaps.

    Each one of us has his own interests but we all like to travel, art in general, nature, sports and people, we speak English, French, Catalan and Spanish.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house is located in Gracia, a very trendy neighborhood in the centre of Barcelona. far from being over touristic, this area is renowned for its bohemian and artistic atmoshpere, as well as for its many small streets and squares where one can appreciate the flavour of our culture. You will find cosy cafes and interesting restaurants as well as a variety of shops which range from artisanal to vintage. There are also food and clothes markets nearby and cinemas, museums and theatres.
Culturally speaking, its location is perfect for those interested in the works of Gaudi and the Modernist architecture, since it takes five minutes to walk to la Pedrera and Casa Batlló. There is also a bus which takes you to the Parque Güell with a stop very close by and the tourist office is a two minute walk from the house.
There are many bus and metro lines available around the corner, and one can also rent a bike from a shop down the road and enjoy cycling around the city.
