The NeighborhoodWe live right in the heart of Collserola, Barcelona's green lung and beautiful nature reserve.
There are many areas to explore, little chapels in the woods, footpaths and mountain springs.
There is one great walk that you should definitely try if you stay with us: The Carretera de les Aigües is the perfect place for a bike ride or a walk while you enjoy views of Barcelona. Within easy access of the city, the trail is a great favourite with locals and also provides a magnificent viewing point from the Collserola Ridge.
The Carretera de les Aigües is so named because of the water pipes that once ran along this path, and retains its horizontal layout. It is almost 10 kilometres long and, at its highest point, stands 450 metres above sea level. It is one of the locals’ most popular cycling and walking trails.
From Sant Pere Màrtir to the Carretera de la Rabassada, the viewing point on the side of Collserola that overlooks Barcelona is perfect. This simple, even path offers sweeping, matchless views of the city.
A privileged balcony overlooking the city which is easily accessible by public or private transport and set against the backdrop of the Collserola Natural Park. Getting AroundThe closest metro station (FGC Baixador de Vallvidrera - Zone 1) is only a 10 minute-walk away (or 3' by local bus). From the station, trains depart to Plaça Catalunya every 5' (15' travel time). There are trains running all night on Fridays and weekends (S1 and S2 lines to Sabadell or Terrassa).
The last train departs from Plaça Catalunya at 00:02 hrs on weekdays. Other Things to NoteThe apartment has LOW ceilings (headroom below beams is just 1.8m, and about 2m in between beams.
It's NOT on the ground floor and there are quite a few steps, so it's not apt for people with reduced mobility.
There is NO washing machine in the apartment. However, if you'd like your chlothes washed, we can do that for you for a small fee.
We live in the woods, and mosquitoes can be a nuisance during the summer months. We do provide insecticide spray for you to use and citronella candles, but the use of insect repellent is advisable if you have a tendency to suffer from insect bites.
