Tucked away from the city's noise, this extensive family villa mixes luxurious neoclassical style with countless modern amenities. Marvel at opulent antiques, laze by the private pool or roll with the good times in the open-plan games room featuring table football, ping pong, a billiards table and a home theatre. And if that wasn't enough, the living room will keep the kids entertained with satellite channels, a Playstation 3 games console and video games. So have a go at rustling up a paella or your favourite local cuisine and serve it up outside at the alfresco dining area. When you can tear yourselves away from this blissful haven, you'll be pleased to know the villa is conveniently located just a ten-minute walk away from the iconic Park Guell monument with breathtaking views over the city. Not to mention the Sagrada Familia is also just a ten-minute drive or a twenty-minute traffic-free metro ride away from the property. With shops, supermarkets, restaurants and bakeries – all just steps away from your front door, enjoy the ease of having everything at your fingertips here without needing to be in the thick of the hustle and bustle of the city's central districts.

Local guide


About Sagrada Família

La Sagrada Família is the neighbourhood immediately surrounding Barcelona’s greatest and largest attraction - the Sagrada Família. As Gaudí’s opus magnum, the architectural behemoth has been in construction for over a century, and some say asking when will it be finished is the easiest way to anger a local. The immediate vicinity of the cathedral is always busy, but the rest of the area is upscale and residential, making it quieter than one would expect. The vast avenues are home to a variety of cafes, shops, and beautifully designed parks.
