3 days minim stay
SUMMER: JULY AND AUGUST Our Check in days are from SATURDAY to SATURDAY even that airbnb shows them from Monday to Monday. please, don't hesitate to ask.
If there is a change on the amount of guest, you can always inform us, even with 24 hours in advance and we will do our best to fit your needs the best we can. We want you to feel home.
WE WILL CANCEL bookings that don't meet your reservation on arrival, (like booking for 5 people and 12 people coming). Your booking can always be adjusted in the last minute. We are here to make you feel welcome.
The centre of Caldes de Montbui is just 5 minutes drive away, and it is a Roman touristic town full of charm and great places to eat, chill and to go shopping to. Barcelona is one of the beautiful cities of Europe, and it’s just at a 35 minutes drive from this quite and spacious house.
My house is outside of Barcelona, so you are going to need a car to drive in and out the city. I do not own a garage to park your car, but car parking is not a problem, as there is plenty of space to park right in front of the house even more than 3-4 cars if you are a big group.
You will have beautiful sights of the forest as my house is surrounded by it. This is the perfect house to have as a base while you explore nature at a walking distance as there are some paths to go for walks in the nature just a street away from us.
Remember, this is Spain, so if you come from a place like Sweeden, this is as good as the Spanish green forests get, but seriously very green, quite and lovely. Birds will wake you up in the mornings and be with you all day.
The house has being design as a family home with a fresh and modern look, as it can host your family and make you fell home it can also host big groups 10-12 people, and retain all the modern comforts of a home.
** This house is outside of Barcelona, so, if you want to walk everywhere, make sure you understand that a car is needed and this is most probably inappropriate for your dream travel.
But if you have a car and you are thinking of using the underground constantly in Barcelona and you have a driving license, it’s very possible that staying here is a better option and driving from the house to most of the “musts” of Barcelona is closer than using public transport in the city, and definitely more confortable if you are traveling in a group larger than 3 people, as we are only 35 minutes away from Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia, or Camp Nou, and hiring the house is definitely nicer and cheaper (if you are 3-4 people) than a Youth Hostel in the City, and for sure cleaner… something to think about….
The house is not attached so it’s full of light all day and the pool has sun from 9 am till 7:30+ in the summer, nice.......
A tiled patio with table, chairs and barbecue will welcome you when you enter the property. Next to it is a “hidden garden” with natural river stones covering the floor, with a table and a bench and a pond.
As this is a modern style construction ceilings are hight, specially in the lounge where there is a double hight for extra light and design, so the space feeling is nice.
Every room has wardrobes or drawers to hang clothes/store shoes etc. There is also an ironing board/iron and a hair dryer kept here as well.
The 3 bathroom have either a bath or a shower, there is always hot water and plenty of towels for you to have. We have and industrial boiler to heat water/central heating, which means that at a constant use You can shower in the three bathrooms at the same time, even with the tap kitchen on, BUT don’t try also using the bathrooms taps on an off while showering, because it’s industrial! not magic! so,large groups, specially girls: don’t agree to shower, make up, and do teeth all at once, as it is still a home! what doesn’t work in your place, won’t work here! be wise please!!
Then through the main door off the hall, is the open plan living space.
There is a tv in the main lounge but I don't own a TV for the swimming pool area. But there is free wifi throughout the house. I have a music/radio player. Plus cards and board games. Will try and make kids happy too.
A large kitchen space with granite stone and all the modern cons - toaster, washing machine, dryer, icemaking fridge and freezer, dishwasher, oven, kettle, microwave, induction hob etc.
In the pool area we have a second kitchen, which is not fully equipped but has fridge, oven, gas stove and microwave, which works as support kitchen to the first and main one.
I hate staying in apartments on holiday where there aren't even any basics to cook with like salt and olive oil, so the kitchen is stocked with all the usual larder fare to help yourself to if you're cooking in. Plus coffee, yes please.
Next to he kitchen is the generous dining space with glass dinning table and six chairs + stools.
There are 5 bedrooms for a 10+2 guests:
2 have 140x200 double beds,
1 has a 160x200 double bed,
1 has 90x200 twin single beds that can be drawn together,
1 has a bunk bed with 90x200 single beds. There is also a
1 80x200 “sofa bed” at the pool area that will turn into a 160x200 proper double bed.
The main living room area of the apartment has two good size sofas and a single sofa, there is also a reading and ceiling light perfect to socialize and also have quiet time with a good book.
The second living room at the pool area has a sofa bed in it and two single sofas in it. There is also a glass dinning table with 4 eames design chairs in it + 3 extra stools in case anyone else turn up! Natural light in this area will amaze you.
The house is alarmed. So if you’ll like to use the alarm while you are here, you are welcome to! More details when you come!
I hope to hear from you. I'm more than happy to answer any questions or give advice about Barcelona/Caldes de Montbui/restaurants/bars etc
All the best
The whole house is for you and is not shared with anyone else.
I should be able to meet you in person to let you in, show you the apartment and answer any questions. Sometimes, due to your arrival time and what I'm up to, I wont be able to meet you personally and so will arrange to leave keys in a safe coded box so you can collect them. I will give you more information and arrange it privately. You can contact me by phone or on airbnb at anytime during your stay.
Check-in is usually any time after 5pm and check-out times are 10am. However I'm flexible and I will try and accommodate your schedule whenever possible. So with that in mind it's really helpful to know your travel plans so please let me know what time you intend to arrive and depart and by what method of transport when you book.
Barcelona is one of those European cities that are impressive and Caldes is a beautiful and historic place. It's busy all year round with the crowds and constant festivities.
You can get to Barcelona by plane,train,car, or Ferry.
Barcelona is a city made for cycling, walking, but if you want there is a very good public travel system. Caldes de Montbui is historic and the town council has invested lots on making it interesting over decades, so, you can do a long historic walk that you will love! safe a day for it and bring confortable shoes!
Underground, bus, train single tickets cost 2,15€ per journey of £4.00 for day (URL HIDDEN)
You can also buy a 2 day unlimited travel tickets for 14,50€ per person. (URL HIDDEN)
Taxis are easy to wave down and book, and they are not as expensive as they would be in the rest of Europe for short journeys, specially if you feel it up (4 people) but they can be expansive if you need to get across the city or out of it! while trains are well scheduled and cheap!
If you bring a car (and want to visit the city) these are the options...
Parking in the Old Town of Barcelona is fine, but there is no direct free parking as its small and historic, look for underground car parks. On the street what spaces you'd find are for residents (green areas) and if the machine on the street doesn’t allow you to get a ticked, your car will be most likely removed and taken by a crane and that will cost you 180€. If the machine allows you to get a ticket it will be limited for two hours maximum stay. If there are blue spaces to park you will be fine.
Do not try to leave your car with out the ticked on the green areas. I strongly recommend you no to do so. Town Councils have discovered on them a way to cash in. So the will find your car if it doesn’t have ticket.
Caldes de Montbui, blue areas works by time, so, blue areas will allow you to park 2hours for free, but you must inform of your time of arrival, a paper with the time will be enough or you can use a time wheel that you will find in the house. If you park properly anywhere else that is not a “blue area”, you won’t be limited by time.
Barcelona; If you are looking for something more long term and without to much hassle there is also free parking you can park in most shopping centres for free (La Maquinista) and then use underground to move around the city.…… if you go to the any city after 20.00, you will be able to use most yellow areas (for delivery during working hours). Even though, please, do not forget to check vertical signs above every “limited”(yellow, blue, green) area.
Blue, green and yellow areas in Barcelona normally are access free after 20.00. Still, always check vertical signs above every area you go to.
Most underground car parking spaces in the city have special rates if you decide to stay for longer than 12-24hrs for whatever reason.
If you are looking into hiring a car at your arrival there are a number of car hire business in Barcelona Airport or Girona Airport that work really well. Talking to earlier guest, we found that most of them will give you a better rate and deals if you book it ahead online or as a package with your flying ticket.
