This past June I had the opportunity to stay in beautiful Barcelona for several days.
The timing was such that our visit fell during the French rail strike and because of the many stranded tourists in Barcelona, we found our reservations at the Barcino 147 B & B upgraded.
While initially concerned that we would not be 'getting what we had paid for', our worries were immediately replaced by a sense of gratitude and good fortune.
The charming owner of Barcino 147, Ferran Font, had welcomed us into his home, or should I say palace... There we had been upgraded to an exquisite suite with private bath and sitting room. The apartment was architecturally a true example of Catalan Modernisme at it's finest, from the spectacular tiled floors to the floor to ceiling french doors which opened onto a square across the way.
Barcino 147 and his home are just blocks away from La Boqueria Market, Las Rambla and the Gothic Quarter). And Ferran could not have been more helpful, with dinner suggestions, arranging transport for us when necessary, and drawing maps for us to local sites.
I think however my favorite part about our stay was sharing conversation, while sitting in the kitchen each morning, drinking delicious coffee and eating some of Ferran's 'secret ingredient' breakfast cereal... I need that recipe!
Overall a delightful stay, I simply can't wait to get back!!
