Our home

Our single-family home with a garden is a rarity downtown Barcelona, where almost everyone lives in apartments and hardly any private green areas remain. On the ground floor, the house features a high-ceilinged, spacious (60 m) living/dining /kitchen area, leading to the garden via floor-to-ceiling glass doors, and a guest bedroom with s separate bath. In the garden, a barbecue and a table sitting 12 under a pergola; secluded at the end of the 25 m long garden, a fountain, another table, and a wooden house for our two cats. The other floors include two bedroom suites and an area overlooking the living room and the garden with three desks and an armchair. (The fourth floor is Kima's studio and her company's administration; it will be on holidays in August). All four levels and the basement are connected by elevator - and stairs, of course. There is plenty of art and textiles hanging from the walls, making for a colorful and pleasant living environment. Our friendly cats can be kept outside - but we ask you to feed them while we you are at our home.

Who we are

  1. We are a married couple, both 62 years old, with a 13 year old daughter. Kima is a well-known textile artist and designer and I am a physicist. We are looking for a house swap in August to visit our long-time friends in Capetown (he is a professor at the University of Capetown).

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

In this vibrant, bustling metropolis we live in a central area that keeps some old small-town charm. Car traffic on our street is restricted to residents, making it extremely quiet. There are nice little restaurants within immediate walking distance, and a variety of stores and shops. Several public transportation networks to anywhere in Barcelona have stops within 300-400 m, and it is only a 20-30 minute walk to the most famous city landmarks.
