Just returned from a fantastic break at Magic Place.This apartment has amazing views over Barcelona with a great infinity pool and just a short trip from the hustle and bustle of the city.Thanks to Antonio for your warm welcome and tour of the local area and information.Also many thanks to Maria for our chat and farewell drinks at the end of our trip.This is a must stay location if you are visiting Barcelona.The kids loved it too and enjoyed travelling on the funicular into the city.Such a beautiful city with so much to see and do.We will return as this is truly a MAGIC PLACE.

“Amazing location, friendly owner, great value”

person found this review helpful

We spent a long weekend here at "magic place" in Vallvidrera Superior and we were so happy with our choice. It is hard to describe how beautiful and tranquil this place is. The owner Antonio lives nearby and was very friendly and keen to help us with our every need. He also kindly left us an amazing welcome gift of food and drink and fresh fruit from the gardens nearby. Did we mention the view was amazing ?! Especially in a thunderstorm one night the show was spectacular!

The location is great for visiting any part of Barcelona - it is less than 30 seconds walk from the Peu de Funicular station which is timed to connect perfectly with the S1/2 lines. This means you can get from the door to any metro stop in centre of Barcelona in less than 25 minutes for around 1 Euro if you buy T-10 ticket. We also took the train to the airport also with the T-10 for same price.

Taxis are cheap also - we came back late one night after we missed the last train on a Sunday (after midnight) and it cost 16Euro. Also nearby (10 minutes by regular local bus 111) are a variety of forest walks, a crazy funpark, cathedral and observatory at Tibidabo Mountain which is the tallest in Barcelona and has amazing views.

“Ultimate location for a visit to Barcelona”
Reviewed September 8, 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This place is close enough to the hustle and bustle of Barcelona (about 15-20min by subway to the Rambalas), but far enough away in a quiet tranquil location. The view overlooking barcelona particularly at night is stunning from about 500metres above the city on the mountainside.
The infinity pool is great to cool off after a long day of exploring the city.
Transport on the venicular down to the subway train is about 30metres from the door, and the local bus stop is about 20 meters away. There are shops nearby for groceries and some nice red wines.The host Antonio was extremely helful and friendly to us during our stay.

“Heaven on Earth!”
Reviewed September 4, 2014 for a stay in September 2014

A thousand words would not give full justice to 'Magic Place' as it stands in its own category, close to heaven. From an impregnable view upon Barcelona to Antonio's charming and discrete attention through the soothing experience of enjoying a private swim after a hot day downtown...everything is perfect. What more? Being 20 minutes away from everything without touching your car, thanks to the funicular station located 20m away! We shall come back!

“Perfect Location”

person found this review helpful

Ideal getaway from the hustle and bustle of Barcelona with incredible views of the city by day or night. Perfect host who ensured the fridge was stocked for our first night and breakfast and supplied us with fresh fruit from his own garden on more than one occasion. The travel to and from the city on the funicular railway was an enjoyable part of the experience. We will be happy to return in the future, and have no hesitation in recommending the apartment.

“Perfect Honeymooners property”

people found this review helpful

Me and my wife spent few days of our honeymoon at Antonio's magic property. It was truly magical, peaceful, relaxing, with great view.

The property is very well furnished and Antonio is a great and friendly host.

The only disadvantages are:

- The property is not so close to the center of the city (about 20 minutes via metro and funicular)
- The pool is not heated

Thanks Antonio for your great hospitality.

“Fantastic holiday”

We stayed here in August 2014. The accommodation is ideal for 4 people or less and is located in the hills above Barcelona in a quiet district of the city. A reliable frequent train service gets you from the apartment to the centre in about 30 mins. The apartment is lovely and comes with everything that you could really need. The views of the city from the patio/pool area are amazing. Antonio the owner is a true gentleman, and the welcome food pack and fruit from his own garden are a real bonus. Excellent value for money and highly recommended.
