Amazing apartment in Barcelona, close to Sagrada Familia

The apartment we offer is located nearby the Sagrada Familia (one of the most known monuments in our city). It has a total of 100m2 spread over two floors, with a patio of 100m2 with loads of plants and beautiful flowers. As it's oriented to the north-west, it is an oasis of coolness in summer and silence all year round.
The apartment is 10 years old, therefore it is a young building. It has an elevator, although it is not necessary, because our home is on the ground floor.
The flat has air conditioning on both floors.
Our home has four rooms distributed between the two floors, all of them have natural lighting and overlook to the interior courtyard.
There are three beds, one king-sized and two individual ones. If you need so, an extra bed and a sofa bed are available. In total, 6 people can be comfortably accommodated.
There are 3 toilets, one on the ground floor and two more toilets on the top floor, one of them equipped with a bathtub (the one in the master bedroom) and another with a shower.
The kitchen is opened to the dining room, with a peninsula where can eat four people, and it's equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, microwave, Nespresso machine, blender and food processor.
In the dining room, there is an extendable round table that allows six people to eat comfortably, as well as a sofa of almost 3 meters that allows 6 people to sit easily.
In the garden, there is a table for lunch or dinner, a sofa with two armchairs, and a hammock for napping or sunbathing on the grass.
I've a second house in Baix Emporda, next to l'Escala and l'Estartit (15min by car), or Girona and Figueres (25min by car). With 3 rooms, 3 doble bed and two sofa bed (ES1018158).

Our Neighbourhood

Nearest Airport: El Prat - 20km

We live in Barcelona, in a very quiet neighbourhood, with 3 supermarkets nearby, two markets, clothing stores, and a hospital, the Hospital de Sant Pau.
Located near the Sagrada Familia (15 minutes walk) and well connected to the metro by two lines, L5 and L4, which, in 10 minutes (or four stops) leave you at Paseo de Gracia, Plaza Catalunya or Ramblas.
The L4 takes you to the sea, to Barceloneta, in 25 minutes.
There are also 6 buses that leave you at the point you want in the city (FCBarcelona Stadium, for example).
The subway stops are less than five minutes away from our house.

About Our Family

My name is Cinta, I am divorced and I live with my two children, my daughter Helena who is 15 years old, and Eloi who is 12 years old. I am an engineer by profession and I am dedicated to environmental services.
We believe in the exchange of houses as a way to travel on a budget, and with mutual respect for property.
We all are travel enthusiasts and like to do loads of photos of our trips! Helena loves to post them on Instagram ;) The three of us enjoy travelling all around the world and meeting new cultures!
We love animals, and that's why we extended our family with a cat, and two turtles, which go free through the patio.

Lifestyle

We enjoy living new experiences and travelling all around the world…. Before discovering this web we didn't travel that much, but now, thanks to Intervac, we have made many trips during the last few years and have visited:
2018: Stockholm (June) / Provence (August) / Belgium (November)
2019: La Camargue (June) / Ireland (August) / Asturias (November)
