Quiet flat in Sagrada Familia, in Barcelona centre. We also exchange another flat in old town Seville.

Hello! We are Mar and Jose. We live in a very cosy and nice apartment in the centre of Barcelona. Our apartment in Barcelona is right next to the Sagrada Familia, in a very safe neighbourhood and with excellent transport links to anywhere in Barcelona, the coast and main sights in the countryside.

The flat is very comfortable and has all appliances (kettle, toaster, toasted sandwich maker, beater, dishwasher, washing machine, air-co) and everything you need for a pleasant stay in Barcelona. There is also WiFi, a computer and a printer.

The location is unbeatable: two minutes walking to the tube station, lots of buses round the corner and you can get to some of Barcelona's highlights by foot (La Pedrera, Sagrada Familia -of course!-, Hospital de Sant Pau, Paseo de Gracia, etc.). Just check the map to see the location. There are many lovely restaurants (a couple michelin-starred rest.) walking distance from the apartment and we will be glad to recommend you our favourites places to eat in the city.

We also exchange another flat in Seville, where we also live some months of the year. It is located in the old town, 5 minutes walking from the Cathedral. You can see pictures of our flat in Seville on the following link:https://photos.app.goo.gl/DY72j3gfx2kbam3GA or Intervac listing number ES1009216.

We are tireless travellers and lucky enough to be able to combine work and travel as we both work from home. We are tidy, respectful, non-smokers and will treat your house as if it was ours . We expect the same behaviour from our exchange partners. We do not mind accommodating smokers so long as they commit to smoke out in the balcony.

We work from home and split our year between Barcelona, Seville and other destinations. Therefore availability of both flats is variable. We are open for non-simultaneous exchanges too.


¡Hola! Somos Mar y Jose y vivimos en un apartamento muy agradable y acogedor en el centro de Barcelona a dos minutos a pie de la Sagrada Familia, en un barrio seguro, céntrico y muy bien comunicado con el resto de Barcelona ciudad o provincia.

En nuestra casa encontraréis todo lo necesario para pasar una temporada en Barcelona, incluyendo WiFi, un ordenador e impresora.

La ubicación no puede ser mejor: a dos minutos de la parada de metro de Sagrada Familia, muchos buses al lado de casa y también se puede ir andando a varios de los puntos de interés turístico de Barcelona (La Pedrera, la Sagrada Familia -¡obviamente!-, el hospital de Sant Pau, el Paseo de Gracia, el barrio de Gracia,etc.). Al lado del apartamento hay muchos restaurantes muy buenos (algunos estrella michelín) y otros igualmente deliciosos que estaremos encantados de recomendaros.

Somos viajeros incansables y tenemos la suerte de poder combinar trabajo y viajes ya que los dos trabajamos desde casa. Somos ordenados, respetuosos y no fumadores y cuidaremos vuestra casa como si fuera la nuestra: de la misma manera esperamos el mismo tipo de comportamiento de aquellos que intercambien la casa con nosotros. No nos importa alojar a fumadores siempre y cuando se comprometan (¡y cumplan!) a fumar en el balcón, no en el interior del piso.

También intercambiamos otro apartamento en el centro de Sevilla, a cinco minutos a pie de la catedral. Podéis ver fotos en el siguiente enlace: https://photos.app.goo.gl/DY72j3gfx2kbam3GA o número de Intervac ES1009216.

Nuestro año transcurre entre Barcelona, Sevilla y otros destinos por lo que la disponibilidad y la duración de la estancia son variables. Estamos también dispuestos a hacer intercambios no simultáneos.

Si tenéis cualquier pregunta, escribidnos y os responderemos encantados. ¡Un saludo a todos!
