Located in the forested regions less than and hour north of the city, this holiday home in Barcelona, is a subtle homage to the early modernist movement that swept through Spain at the turn of the 20th century.
Constructed of clean geometric lines and rising out of a limestone base, the house was erected to take advantage of views of the natural landscape and the distant vistas of the Mediterranean.
The immersive living, dining and kitchen areas share the ground floor with slide away glass that extend out to nature.
The bedrooms face north, allowing the cool breezes from the sea during summer to infiltrate the house, while the terraces are oriented southwards towards the sunsets.
Cool off and take a dip in the pool and enjoy breakfast in the sun where the light casts subtle reflections on the white walls and yellow sandstones where architecture and nature meet.
Wifi throughout, cable TV, kitchen and bath amenities, private parking.
The house is less than an hour east of Barcelona and just twenty minutes to the Mediterranean and many of Catalonia’s best beaches, hidden coves, wooded walking trails through the surrounding pine forests, and ten 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.
