Elaine and I were delighted with Kathy's lovely apartment in the 15th arrondissement. The surroundings were quiet, and we enjoyed being off the beaten tourist path, while having easy access to a metro stop. We were also within easy walking distance to any kind of shop we wished for groceries and necessities. We are very grateful to Kathy for making this home away from home available to us at the time we wanted.
Kathy's apartment in this very appealing, non-touristy neighbourhood was comfortable, authentic, and quiet. It was the ideal base from which to explore this ever alluring city. Close to the apartment we found favourite places to shop or hang out and pretend to be locals. The apartment has everything one needs for daily life and restful nights. Could not have been better!
Ideal location as really near everywhere but not full of tourists. Interesting to walk around the area and enjoy delicious food and wine in the many local bars and restaurants. Really bright comfortable apartment and lovely balcony with nice views of Barcelona including La Sagrada Familia. A great home exchange.
Kathy, Ferran, and the kids are great. The apartment is lovely and situated in a wonderful part of Barcelona. We had everthing we needed and were lucky enough to spend an evening with Kathy and her family. We could not have asked for more. Jug and Heidi Sidhu
The Barcelona flat of Cathy and Ferran is a joy to live in. It's well furnished and decorated, and the kitchen has everything you need to cook for yourself as desired. There is a darling patio off the living room that overlooks the city, including Sagrada Familia. Being in the Gracia quarter is perfect for exploring the city, and the quarter is filled with interesting restaurants and cafes. It's a short walk to the Metro stop. The street where the flat is located is quiet and yet it contains most of the shops you need. A short block away, on a nice piazza, there is a pharmacy, along with a nice cafe. Cathy and Ferran will make their flat ready for guests, that's for sure. They are kind, generous, interesting people, whom it's worth going out of your way to meet.
This comfortable apartment is in a great neighbourhood. A gentle yet vibrant neighbourhood, with great cafes, food shops and delightful squares for relaxing with a drink, amid locals and happy children. We were close to the metro, and within walking distance of attractions. We'd do it again!
