City breaks and beach escapes in the Province of Barcelona

Occupying a picturesque portion of Catalonia, this sprawling province is home to one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world – Barcelona. The province's capital, it's best known for its striking architectural jewels by celebrated architect Antoni Gaudi, as well as its rich cultural, artistic and historical heritage. Beyond the bustling, attraction-packed city, the province lures in visitors with its sun-drenched countryside, mouthwatering cuisine and family-friendly beach resorts. Whether you go for city digs or a seaside retreat, the Province of Barcelona vacation rentals vary as much as the region itself.

Things to do

Barcelona icons and natural splendor

Opting for a Province of Barcelona vacation rental is a no-brainer for anyone looking to visit the area's star attractions. A sightseeing tour can guide you to all the iconic UNESCO-designated Gaudi works, from the curvy Casa Mila and the colorfully-tiled Park Guell, to the grandiose but still unfinished Sagrada Familia church. Around 50 kilometers from the city, Montserrat sits cradled up high amongst dramatic rock formations, giving it a spiritual aura. It's home to the Basilica of Montserrat, with its gilded interior, and the Museum of Monserrat, which features artworks by the likes of Caravaggio, Dali and Picasso.

Activities

See Barcelona sights by Segway and unwind on a golden beach

The province's capital offers plenty to cram your itinerary with, so hop on a guided Segway tour and tick the star attractions off your sightseeing list. From Gaudi's many marvels and famous monuments like the colorful Magic Fountain, to flowery plazas and Las Ramblas – a leafy pedestrian thoroughfare – the city is ever-bustling. And when that's done, visit the world-class museums, galleries and restaurants, before heading to an urban beach to top up your tan. The rest of the province offers quieter pursuits, from hiking and wine tasting in the Catalan countryside, to exploring its smaller towns, cities and resorts.

Weather

Abundant sunshine in the Province of Barcelona

When choosing your Province of Barcelona vacation rental, the region's weather shouldn't be too much of a deciding factor. December, January and February are the coldest months, with the capital's temperatures lingering around in the high 50s during the day, and the higher mountain areas being considerably cooler. The summertime, from May to October, is probably the best time to visit, however, with July and August being the warmest months, with average daily temperatures of around the low 80s during the day.

Natural features

Coasts and forests in the Province of Barcelona

Hemmed in by the Mediterranean Sea and the neighboring provinces of Tarragona, Lleida and Girona, the Province of Barcelona boasts some beautiful scenery. Here you'll find everything from sleek beaches and rugged rocky coastline, to sweeping countryside, fertile vineyards and domineering mountains veined with winding roads. One place to see the region's natural beauty up close is Montseny Natural Park, situated 50 kilometers from Barcelona. Draped in peaceful meadows and pine and oak forests, it provides a haven for a variety of animals, including wild boar, foxes, and adorable genets.
