Located in forested regions less than an hour north of the city, this holiday home in Barcelona is constructed of clean geometric lines and rises out of a limestone base, taking advantage of views of the natural landscape and the distant vistas of the Mediterranean.
The living, dining and kitchen areas share the ground floor with slideaway glass that extends out to nature. The bedrooms face north, allowing cool breezes from the sea into the house during summer, while the terraces are oriented southwards towards the sunsets.
Cool off and take a dip in the pool, and enjoy breakfast as the light casts subtle reflections on the white walls and yellow sandstone.
Please note: The house has four bedrooms in total, but some may not be available. The two main bedrooms share access to one bathroom. Two of the bedrooms are accessible only from the exterior of the house. Rooms are minimally furnished. Please inquire with owner to clarify that the setup is what you are looking for, and to make sure the number of rooms you need are available.
Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, private parking.
The house is less than an hour east of Barcelona and just 20 minutes to the Mediterranean and many of Catalonia’s best beaches, hidden coves, wooded walking trails through the surrounding pine forests, and 10 minutes from the village of Sant Vicenc Montalt.
A seaside town of celebrated artistic, culinary and cultural treasures, Barcelona is home to a stunning array of Gothic, Medieval, Romanesque and Modernist masterpieces all housed along the sparkling Mediterranean with the Collserola Hills as a backdrop.
The famous Eixample district is an area that has reinvented itself as one of the premier dining destinations of Barcelona with world class cuisine as well as a colorful and quirky area of shops, bars and cultural spaces in neighboring Raval. The Passeig de Gracia and Rambla Catalunya are praised by locals for being one of the nicest in central Barcelona. Sometimes referred to as the Cuadrado de Oro, it’s the epicenter for modernism in Barcelona and features the work of modernist architects Antoní Gaudi, Enric Sagnier and Doménech I Muntaner.
