We offer a lovely twin-room with own bathroom in a stylish, architect-designed house in a unique, quiet passageway in Les Corts/Eixample area. Lots of great restaurants, bars and shops on our doorstep. Sants Station 5' walk and Camp Nou FCBC 15' walk. Las Ramblas a 30' stroll or 10' in metro.
We live in this property which is our permanent home and love to offer home-sharing within airbnb. We let out a lovely twin-bed room in our architect-designed home situated in a small private passageway with no through traffic. The bedroom is on the first floor. What we love about the house is the tranquility and its mix of indoor and outdoor sitting places including the ground floor garden patio and large roof terrace area with sun beds, deck chairs and large round Spanish ceramic mosaic table. We completely rebuilt our house 15 years ago and we've maintained its original character through careful use of authentic materials. Our area combines the best of both worlds: authentic Barcelona without the tourist crush and with very easy access to all the main sights.
Disponible para huéspedes
Guests have exclusive use of the twin-bed bedroom and the bathroom next door, which has a full-size bath, shower and double wash-hand basins. Guests are welcome to use the common areas with respect. On the ground floor, there's a very pleasant open plan living room/kitchen that opens onto the garden patio through double French doors, a reading area and TV room. On the first floor there's a small sitting room that opens onto a small characterful exterior stairway that leads down to the patio. There's also a roof terrace with sun beds, deck chairs and a large Spanish mosaic table. As all the outdoor and indoor common areas are spread over three floors, it's very easy to find a relaxing place to sit where you won't be disturbed after a busy day's sightseeing.
Guests are welcome to serve themselves breakfast from the supplies provided and also prepare their own snacks and salads at any time (but no hot cooking is permitted). There are restaurants of all types and for all budgets within a few minutes walking distance.

We'll respect your privacy, but are always pleased to hear about your day and are very happy to help you with any local knowledge and advice if you ask. We speak English, Spanish, Brazilian Portuguese, some French and basic Hungarian.

We're a Scottish couple in our 50s who came to Barcelona 24 years ago and never left! We both work freelance: I'm a teacher trainer on EFL courses and Alan's an executive coach and writer. Our favourite holiday destinations are Rio de Janeiro and Cadaques on the Costa Brava. We both love travelling, books, food, music and wandering around the city. When we travel we prefer to relax into a place rather than do things whirlwind. We'd like to help you get the most out of your stay in Barcelona by sharing our knowledge and experience of the city with you, as well as our home. We'll go the extra mile to make your stay comfortable and memorable.
