Just as the title implies. This was a great location which was about 1.5 from the beach. I could not have asked to deal with a nicer owner then Rosa Bolet. She patiently and politely addressed any questions I had about Barcelona. Her apartment is equipped with all of the basic necessities for a successful trip. We quickly felt right at home in her apartment which we don't normally do in a hotel room. I highly recommend this property for all who want to have a nice time exploring Barcelona or for those just simply looking to enjoy the very nearby beach of Nova Icaria.
