For a family of four who wanted to relax, enjoy good food and an uncrowded beach, read their books in peace AND see the amazing creations of Antoni Gaudi in Barcelona, this worked well.
The house was immaculate and comfortable, with a variety of sleeping spaces (double, twin, bunk beds and single) as well as diverse sitting-out areas -- roof terrace, garden corner, front porch and barbecue area at the side -- so we could all gather or retreat as we wished.
The long, golden, sandy beach was just a few minutes away, as were a bakery, fish shop, well-stocked supermarket and a number of very good restaurants in this quiet but attractive residential area. And we soon got the hang of the easy train ride into central Barcelona with its stunning sights and dining opportunities.
Thank you to our hosts Virginia and Edward for making everything so nice, and for their helpful information pack.
