Barcelona Villas

Explore the unique city of Barcelona and all of its famous attractions, which include breathtaking beauty, important cultural sights and golden sandy beaches.  Barcelona is one of the most frequented cities in the world receiving many visitors annually, who come to enjoy the many delights of Spain’s second largest city.  Book a Barcelona villa for the chance to explore all of the highlights in the capital of Catalonia whatever your interests.  Whether you want to relax on the beach, indulge in some shopping or discover the vibrant history and culture of one of Europe’s most fascinating cities, a Barcelona villa holiday gives you the perfect opportunity to enjoy the area at your own pace and with however many guests you choose.

Many people choose to book a Barcelona villa during the months of May and October, but you can also visit in winter when the skyline is decorated by the snow-capped summit of the Montseny mountain range.  At just 124km from the ski resorts of the Pyrénées you could enjoy an escape to the slopes during a Barcelona villa holiday.

Although there are many interesting cultural and historical sights in the city, you might like to frequent a Barcelona villa to enjoy more leisurely pursuits such as relaxing on the beach or shopping.  National Geographic has named Barcelona as the best beach city in the world due to its seven beaches that consist of 4.5km of stunning coastline.  You might like to relax on the two largest and popular beaches named Sant Sebastià and Barceloneta, where the Mediterranean Sea gently crashes against its shores. 

After a day at the beach take a stroll down La Rambla where extravagantly costumed street entertainers line the walkways, and souvenir shops and cafés provide the perfect places to browse and relax.  Be sure to stop at the Font de Canaletes during a walk along La Rambla on a Barcelona villa holiday, which is the city’s most famous fountain.

One of the most famous sights in all of Barcelona is Antoni Gaudí’s unfinished masterpiece – La Sagrada Familia.  This magnificent structure attracts visitors from all over the world who come to marvel at the impressive monument that has been under construction since 1882.  A Barcelona villa is the perfect base from which to explore all of Gaudi’s famous works, from the ornate Park Guëll to Casa Milà.  Visitors to the city can access the gardens of Park Guëll for free and witness the spectacular mosaics, pathways and terrace walls.  Gaudi and his family lived in a Barcelona villa in the park for a number of years and today people can visit the la Torre Rosa, as it is named, for an entrance fee.  The house contains furniture that the architect designed himself amongst other artefacts.

A great way to see many of Gaudi’s sights as well as other famous monuments is to take a bus tour of the city.  Many of these tourist services are hop on hop off, so that during a Barcelona villa holiday you can take in all of the sights for a great price.  From important cultural sights like La Sagrada Familia to Camp Nou, the home of Barcelona FC, and the Olympic Village, there is a wealth of attractions to discover in Barcelona.  As you travel around the city on an open top bus you can enjoy the panoramic views of the surroundings as well as the beautiful sunshine and cool breeze.  If you take a bus tour during a Barcelona villa holiday you usually receive some headphones to listen to the commentary about the history of the sights.

One of the simplest and most rewarding things to do in Barcelona is to wander amongst its narrow streets and squares.  If you visit the Gothic Quarter, which is also known as Barri Gòtic in Catalan, during your holiday at a Barcelona villa you can see many buildings which date back to medieval times as well as the impressive Barcelona Cathedral.  Elsewhere in the city, the museums provide you with an interesting day out.  Art lovers should take time to explore the National Museum of Art of Catalonia or the Picasso Museum whilst other museums such as CosmoCaixa cover other subjects like science.
