Description

The Space

Your newly built cabin along with spacious terrace and garden area occupies the whole of the lower area of a large family property. The host family (two adults and two children) lives on the upper part of the property. You will have your own separate entrance and garden stairway for total privacy (although we are here for you of course, if you have any questions!) The front part of the living space has a working antique French wood burning stove (we'll provide the fuel!) for cosy heating in the winter. There's a solid oak six-seater dining table, large 6-seater Habitat sofa and a small desk and bookshelf. There's fibre optic WiFi if you want to curl up and watch a movie. The door to the cabin is lockable and the entire front of the cabin can fold back and open out on to the terrace, giving you a huge inside/outside living area. In the back half of the cabin is a well equipped kitchenette, with twin gas hob, sink, fridge and coffee machine (with coffee provided). There's also a bathroom with sink, mirror, shower and toilet, all newly fitted in 2015. The bedroom has a shuttered window with ornate wrought iron bars, and keeps shaded and cool in the summer months thanks to a beautiful grape vine. The whole cabin has wooden flooring and walls, which are fully insulated for sound and heat.

Guest Access

Guests enter the property from the street, using the main gate, but then turn left down the stairs onto the large patio, which is split level. Turning left from the upper patio down onto the lower patio, takes you to the front door of the cabin on your left, next to the lemon and orange trees. Pull the black door handle UPWARDS to open the door ....

Interaction with Guests

We are always available to help our guests and are happy to give you great tips on where to go and what to do. Your host, Nadia, is English and has lived in Catalunya for 20 years so she has plenty of recommendations for the best places to eat and drink, things to see and places to visit in Barcelona and beyond.

The Neighborhood

La Floresta is a village of about 2,500 people located in a very green and quiet area, just on the edge of a nature reserve and 20 minutes from Barcelona. La Floresta has 6 bar-cafés, 2 bakeries, 3 mini supermarkets and a growing selection of great restaurants, including the famous Casa Blava. Oh, and 1 traffic light! There are many lovely nature walks nearby with waterfalls and lots of horseriding. You may even see little families of wild boars (the symbol of la Floresta) trotting around the streets - don´t worry, they will just ignore you. If you want the big-city buzz of Barcelona, then Gaudí's Sagrada Familia, the Picasso Museum, the beaches and las Ramblas are easy to get to and the trains go directly from La Floresta to the top of the Ramblas every 6 minutes (see below, Getting Around).

Getting Around

The drive to your cabin from Barcelona airport is just 15-20 minutes. There is plenty of on-street parking right next to the house. You can drive down to Barcelona in just 15 minutes but we recommend that you make trips into the city centre by public transport - the excellent FGC train only cost 2€ with a journey time of 20 minutes. Your cabin is only 7-8 minutes' walk from la Floresta train station and the central village square, and there are trains into Barcelona every six minutes, so getting around is not a problem.

Other Things to Note

We have cats and a free-spirited rabbit!

Millions of people are using Airbnb to sleep in strangers' homes, beds, and even couches. They have an amazing selection and you can't find their stuff anywhere else. There is a catch: you often need to contact several hosts to actually get a place to stay, so make sure you give yourself some lead time.
