“Private Hilltop Retreat”
Reviewed 9 July 2018 for a stay in June 2018

As all of the other reviews said, this place is a little oasis from busy Barcelona, and Antonio is the perfect host. We felt like we had our own retreat for a week. Loved having coffee and fresh bread in the morning on the patio overlooking the city, and having a nice moonlit view at night. It was very private.
Did I wish we stayed a little closer to the city? Sometimes, yes. We were very busy taking in the sights so once we left the Magic Place for the day and it was hard to return and then go back out again. Yes, it is a 25-minute ride to the center of the city but then you have to add more time if you go outside the center, which you will. We had to plan our days carefully. If we were more relaxed about seeing things, this would not be a problem.
That being said, we are still happy we chose this place, and hated leaving.

“Magic place, perfect place”
Reviewed 1 November 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The perfect base for exploring Barcelona. Up in the hills surrounding Barcelona but with fast (25 mins) and frequent transport to the centre. The view is amazing and while there so much to see in the city make the time to sit out on the terrace and enjoy the pool and the view over Barcelona towards the sea. Antonio was the perfect host and we will definitely be going back again.

“Amazing Stay”
Reviewed 15 June 2017 for a stay in June 2017

I stayed here with a girlfriend for 5 nights and had a great time. First of all Antonio is such a nice man, an absolute gentleman, very kind throughout our visit and we arrived to a generously stocked fridge. Apartment is lovely and feels very safe. Pool is amazing, views are fantastic and although shared with a family in the building we had it to ourselves throughout. Very easy transport to the centre of Barcelona - took about 20-30 minutes. The village is very small but has everything you need and the ice cream shop on the doorstep of the apartment is absolutely brilliant. I am already looking to book again for next year (I would go again this summer but booked up!)

“Wonderfully magical”
Reviewed 13 October 2016 for a stay in September 2016

I can only reiterate all the positive comments previously written about Magic Place. It certainly carries its name well, as the view, ever-changing through the day and night truly is magical. We were greeted by Antonio who was charming and​ welcoming​. Upon arrival, our fridge contained all we needed to get us started, bread, jam, wine, water, ham, etc.. This was really an unexpected bonus as we have been renting apartments all through Europe for years and this is the first time we were so spoiled. ​The apartment was very comfortable and very clean. All the linens and towels were a good quality, which was much appreciated and not always the case for rentals. Comfortable beds that you just sink in. We loved living in this apartment and looked forward to coming back to it after our days exploring Barcelona. We will keep warm memories from the Magic Place for many years to come. Thank you, Antonio, for sharing this very special place with us. We hope to have the chance to return again in the future. Mille mercis!

“Suberb accommodation”
Reviewed 23 September 2016 for a stay in September 2016

This was our first accommodation at the start of our 6 weeks around Spain and Portugal and we know it won't be surpassed. From the minute we walked in we knew we had found somewhere special - from the stunning views over Barcelona to the impeccable attention to detail. Travelling into Barcelona city was easy (and unique) on the funicular and metro. An easy walk into the town of Vallvidrera and you have everything you need including a fantastic bakery. Antonio is the most gracious host. Thankyou Antonio for making us so welcome.
