I will be more then happy to share my knowledge of the area (the best boutiques, markets, restaurants, kids-friendly places in Gracia and rest of the city) so you can feel like a local straight away! ;)

Gracia was an independent municipality until it was annexed to Barcelona in 1897 along with other villages. Although today it's a very centric district, it has preserved its unhurried village lifestyle inside the big city.

Gracia hosts many designer boutiques, artist workshops, delicious cozy restaurants and beautiful sunny squares, all in vibrant, bohemian atmosphere. Relaxed, very safe and semi-pedestrian, Gracia district is the favorite neighborhood of the community of actors, musicians, photographers, artists and designers, just like of young cosmopolitan families. Unlike the other trendy areas in Barcelona like Born or the Gothic Quarter, hugely visited by tourists, Gràcia is still off the beaten path, a true invitation to the city's authenticity.

On the lively Asturias street, just around the corner, you will find the best eco-bakery in town, large organic food store-market, nice wine storehouse and very charming fair-trade boutique for getting unique handmade souvenirs for your loved ones.

The most well-known attraction in Gracia is the Gaudi-designed Parc Güell located on El Carmel mountain (20 min. walking from the apartment). Casa Vicens, Gaudi’s first important work and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also located in Gracia (3 min. away). Other famous Gaudi landmarks, like Casa Milà (La Pedrera), Casa Batlló and the spectacular Sagrada Familia Church are also located within a walking distance from the apartment.

The nearest metro station Fontana is located at just 3 min. distance from the apartment. You can reach Plaza Cataluña - the heart of it all - from Fontana in about 10 min. (3 stops).

Please inquire me about the best way to get to my place from the airport (depends on your arrival time) or if you need parking (some low-cost options available in the neighborhood).

Not suitable for senior travelers (no elevator).
Folded strollers can be stored on the base floor. (Please bring along a small bycicle lock to fix it or I'll provide one.)
No large pets, only small pets are accepted.

  • Me and my wife had been at Vyta's apartment for a couple of days. Vyta is very kind person. She's helpful and always available for questions and advices. The apartment was just great! All what you need you have there. We cooked almost every day. There's a supermarket 100 meters from there and a lot of stores and bars. The place is very close to the center of Barcelona and even that there is a Metro station 3 min away from there, you can walk to the center of Barcelona in less than 30 min'. The shower is comfortable and shiny. one disadvantage of the apartment is that the building is very old. It's really matters to know that because you have to climb 3 floors with no elevator and the stairs's slope is steep compared to a modern building, so maybe the apartment will not be the best for an old couple, but for young and mid-age it will be just perfect.

  • My sister and I had a wonderful stay in Vyta's apartment. The flat is brilliantly located - close to the lovely restaurants and bars of Gracia. The apartment was very clean and nicely decorated. We really enjoyed our stay and we would fully recommend others to stay with Vyta!

  • We had a great time and Vyta's apartment was perfect for our needs. It was clean and spacious for the 3 of us and as it was only a very short distance from the nearest Metro station, we could easily come and go as we pleased.
    The flat is well appointed with everything needed for a comfortable vacation. The local shops had everything we needed and were within 2 minutes walk. The area felt safe and friendly and there were plenty of bars and restaurants nearby.
    With Barcelona being such a busy city, I was relieved that there was no traffic noise at the flat.
    Value for money is important to me and the rental rates made the holiday very affordable.
    I would have no hesitation staying again if I return to this wonderful city.

  • Vyta's flat is perfect for any length of stay. It's light and clean, with a great kitchen I made some great food in, local shops have everything you could ask for.
    Vyta provided a plethora of useful information such as maps and guides of the area, Spanish phrase books and was able to answer any question I had about the flat, area or about Barcelona in general very quickly and thoroughly.
    The flat's located in a great neighbourhood and is very convenient to walk to any area of Barcelona from or take the metro if you're more comfortable with that.

    I could talk at more length but I think I've said enough, I can't recommend Vyta's cozy flat enough, it's excellent and if I come back to Barcelona it will definitely be my first choice.

  • Vyta's flat was great: clean, modern, and comfortable, right in the heart of Barcelona's Gracia neighborhood. Thanks to her expert directions, meeting up was easy. Our check-in with her was quite fast (our flight made us a little late, so I think she needed to go), but everything we needed - instructions for the TV, washer, etc) was in a binder on the kitchen table, and there were helpful guide books and phrasebooks on a little shelf. We would definitely stay here again.

  • We loved Vyta's place. It's a good size for a couple, very comfortable and tastefully designed, clean, with great light. Her place is located in a quiet but vibrant neighbourhood with lots of great food and shopping nearby, very easy access to the subway and only a couple of stops from the places you'll likely be needing to go to as a tourist.

    Vyta's a great host too, fast to respond to inquiries and well-organized with all the important info easily at hand. Met her briefly on check-in and found her friendly and warm too.

    Wouldn't hesitate for a second to recommend staying here on a visit to Barcelona.

  • It was my first airbnb experience and from my stay at Vyta's place, this certainly won't be my last. Vyta is such a sweet woman that treated me and my fiance like family from the very first time we met her at the place. Communication and reply time was always very quick from when I booked the apartment, no matter what time it was. We had an opportunity to meet her son, Manu as well. Vyta's home was exceptionally clean and had everything that we needed to make our stay pleasant. The WiFi worked wonderful for us. I enjoyed Vyta's personal touches on the place. It was on a very quiet side street, so we were able to sleep well. All of her neighbors in the building were very friendly and said hello to me everytime. From the reviews, people kept referencing the stairs being an issue. I had about five pieces of luggage and the stairs weren't a big deal whatsoever. I guess it wasn't a big deal for me because I was raised in a six floor walkup building, living on the fifth floor with no elevator. The Fontana L3 Metro Station was literally about a three minute walk. Loved the bars and restaurants on Asturies Street. Macchina Pasta Bar is a must try. They had the cheapest beer and wine (2 Euros for a glass of wine or a bottle of beer). I like staying at places that doesn't feel very touristy. I felt like a local for my entire stay in the neighborhood. We also walked down Passeig de Gracia to Plaza De Catalunya, which was about a 20-30 minute walk. The weather was perfect, so we didn't mind walking at all. We also walked to Park Guell, which was pretty close to the apartment as well. I was nervous since this was my first airbnb experience, but staying at Vyta's place assured me that this is a wonderful thing and I will probably not stay in a hotel again. She set the expectation bar high for me when I look at other places from here on out, haha. I loved Barcelona and when I am able to return back to this vibrant city, I will definitely inquire about Vyta's place. I couldn't recommend a better place and host to the airbnb community and it was very good value for the money. Keep up the wonderful work Vyta. Saludos!

  • Vyta's apartment is clean and quiet. It is located in a great neighborhood of Barcelona with lots of shops, restaurants, great bakeries, and fruiterias. There's a great donor kebab place around the corner that is to die for!

    The subway is around the corner and the buses run along the main road.

    The apartment is located on the 2nd floor and is a walk up with lots of stairs. It wasn't a big deal for us, but something to keep in mind if you have certain health & mobility issues.

    Vyta was great and had prepared various tourist info and guides, and had left out several Barcelona & Spain guides for us.

    I am a light sleeper and had no problems there. The bed was super comfortable and the bedroom was quiet.

    I highly recommend Vyta and her apartment. We will definitely stay here again!

Hi! My name is Vyta, I’m from Baltics but I live in Barcelona since 2003. When I’m not working in a local design company, I take long walks with my 10 years old son Manu, do some sports (beach volley is my favorite), enjoy my wonderful neighborhood and travel from time to time. I’m renting my place through Airbnb since two years now and it has always been a great experience. When traveling, I also use Airbnb for accommodation – I don't imagine myself staying in a hotel anymore, too boring!
