Cozy house with small garden in Barcelona hills

Very cozy and sunny home in quiet Vallvidrera , with 3 bedrooms (one double, 2 single), a piano, a fireplace and a 60m2 garden where you can enjoy lovely spring meals (even on sunny winter days). It's ideal for couples, small families or those seeking for a quiet environment to work on intellectual activities and enjoying nature , while taking advantage of all the accademic, cultural, culinary , etc. activities buzzling Barcelona has to offer. When you come home from the frenziness of the city, you can't believe you are only 25 minutes from downtown Catalunya Square. And in the summer beeing in the garden away from the heat of the city is delightful ! The house is located in Collserola forest, so it's ideal for walking or jogging. It's near highways (25 minutes driving distance from the airport), the sea, the mountains... Near International schools (around 20 mins. driving distance or metro, depending on the school) and easy to reach most campuses (on public transport).

We have a sweet and independent cat, Ringo. He lives outdoors and very occasionaly comes home to be fed and have a knap on the sofa. And if you realy love dogs, maybe Mia could be happy to stay home.

About Me
I'm a visual artist and a yoga teacher, two passions that imply an ongoing learnig. I'm interested in Indian filosophy and am currently working on my thesis about the relationship between the aesthetic experience and yoga in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism. I live with my teenage daughter and our wonderful half-labrador Mia in a very quiet house where I can concentrate on my work away from the busy city center. I speak English, French, Italian, apart from Spanish and Catalan and I enjoy reading, cinema, being in contact with nature, eating well, the company of friends and loved ones... all in all, just enjoying life's pleasures. We expect to rent our home to someone that will treat and enjoy it as well and as much as we do.

I am in a sabbatical stay for a year in Barcelona. I traveled with my wife and our dog. Along this time we stayed in this beautiful house with a small but gorgeous garden. House is perfect. The last winter was nice in the house because it is well isolated from the exterior (thick windows, double door, etc.) and chimney works well. The house is in the Collserola Natural Park, a beautiful region at the west of the City of Barcelona. Train station is located at a distance of ~15min walk, and the train goes directly to Plaza Catalunia Station in the heart of the City (around 15min by train). The tenant is a nice person and communication (by whatsapp and/or email) was good and promptly. We really enjoy our stay in the house of Elena, and I give my best recommendations.

We highly recommend a stay in Elena's lovely house. It is small but practical, very tastefully furnished; we felt immediately at home. For us, the real treasure is the wonderful, sunny, small garden and patio, completely private, with a great, wide and green view. A small drawback is the isolated location, but there is a good and frequent train connection to downtown, with the station at a 10-15 walk; the train to Plaça Catalunya is 16 minutes. Elena is very helpful and responsive when questions come up. We wish we could have stayed much longer! Excellent Maarten Golterman 5/19/2018 1:13:00 PM
