Superb location for this stylish 4-bedroom apartment which is a short stroll to the incredible Sagrada Familia and 12 minutes to the city centre. The apartment is very light and bright with colourful walls and lovely wooden floors. There's a spacious living room which is separated from the kitchen area by an impressive wooden breakfast bar. The living area has a sofa, table and TV for hanging out with your flat-mates while the kitchen is well equipped with a microwave, stove, fridge-freezer and lots of cupboard space. One of the bedrooms has its own bathroom which means the other bathroom is shared between 3 rooms. It has a bright, modern feel and is in the perfect location for exploring Barcelona's amazing landmarks.
Gracia is a bustling neighbourhood but it has plenty of green space to enjoy the peace and quiet, such as the Parc de les Aigues which is 3 minutes from the apartment or the pretty Jardins del Princep de Girona, also 3 minutes away. The apartment is 2 minutes from the busy Ronda del Guinardo with lots of shops, restaurants and public transport links. You're also 3 minutes from a gorgeous bakery and cafe to stock up on delicious pastries and cakes or to grab a coffee. It's about a 15-minute walk to the Sagrada Familia or 10 minutes by metro into the bustling city centre.

Your charming, lively hangout
Gràcia was once an independent town.
Perhaps that’s why it feels like a village in the heart of Barcelona.
Bars, boutiques and restaurants pepper the pedestrian streets. It's a real a favourite of local residents.
What can I do here?
Visit the colourful temple of Catalan modernism that is Park Güell. Think Spartacus meets the Flintstones. Awesome. You have to pay €8 to get in, though.
Shop for fresh food at Mercat de la Llibertat. It’s an indoor market, open since 1888. You can buy fish, legumes, vegetables and other natural products.
Explore the car-free streets. (Why aren’t all city centres car free?)
Pause for a cool beer or vermouth in one of Gràcia’s vibrant squares:
Cines Verdi is a cinema. It shows original language films with Spanish subtitles. Some weeknight viewings are a tiny bit cheaper (€7 vs €8). Gosh.
The best time to be in Gràcia is mid-August during the Festa Major de Gràcia. Jaw-dropping street decorations, human pyramids, fireworks, parades, great food and lots to drink. Party on. And on.
