The house is an old cubical fisher house, really cosy, quite, sunny and clean and there is always a nice breeze passing by. It is on one floor and the second is a huge terrace.
Ideal for people who want to visit this beautiful city by day and by night, live the beach experience and still be surrounded by a quite atmosphere.
It is beside the beach (2 minutes walking), last line of houses before the sea and 7 minutes walking from Poblenou and Llacuna subway station, so it is really easy to move around the city.
Please note that Llacuna subway station is only 3 metro stops (5 minutes) from downtown, and Poblenou subway station is just one more, so you can go and enjoy yourself, but still living in a quite and nice environment.
The house has 3 double bedrooms.
The best part of the house is definitively the terrace which is the half of the house. You can have eat, have a drink and relax yourself. You will love staying there. (just keep in mind that after 23.00 you cannot stay to respect neighbours' sleep unless in silence)
All the apartment is decorated with contemporary art, especially my works. You can check my works if you look for the artist Jupiterfab
I live and work next door so if you need anything, you can always find me easily.
The kitchen is fully equipped with dishes, cutlery, pots and pans, a fridge, a stove and a oven. If you want to cook at home, you will find everything you need.
The bathroom has a small bathtub and a shower. Good and functional.
The apartment has a wifi connection.
There are three middle size sunny and quite bedrooms each of them with double bed; two of them have a huge wardrobe, a big window and everything you need to make your stay relaxing and comfortable.
One of them is facing the street (quite) and the other the patio of the house (extremely quite).
The third bedroom is internal with a small window which face the living room.
Every room is set with clean bedlinen and towels.
In case you need, I provide a taxi service for maximum 6 people at the airport (one way or back and forth) for an affordable price as much as a private parking in case you come by car.
I am Fabrizio, I am an Italian living in Barcelona. I am a visual and sound artist and I live and work 2 minutes by the apartment.
I am from Brescia, a city close to Milan. Barcelona has been my base for over 6 years and I used to live and work in Toronto (3 years) and in Rotterdam (2 years).
I am a visual and sound artist; my artist name is Jupiterfab. I normally work on international public projects and exhibitions and at the same time, I am also an Italian and Spanish part-time teacher/translator specialized teaching on Skype
I also organize private dinners in my house and aperitivos downtown or directly at people's house, so that, if you want me to prepare you a good breakfast or a nice lunch or a romantic Italian dinner, Iet me know and I will be happy to set everything for you for an affordable price.
I am quite open and I will be happy to give you tips and suggestions about the area, the city and possible interesting events.
My house is unique and you will enjoy it if you are looking for a quite house and area where to enjoy the beach and breathing art and an artist experience...
See you sooon!
p.s. If you are a smoker, you are still welcome, but please, do not smoke inside the house, only in the patio or in the terrace.
Livi here, you will easily be able to visit Barcelona by day and by night without being surrounded by tourists and traffic. Moreover, you will enjoy the beach and the art that is in every room of the house.
However, If you are coming to have parties every night, drug, sex and everything similar this is NOT the place for you. It is a quite area, I want to respect my neighbours and myself too and you would be definitively bored here.
Please also keep in mind this house is a nice and cosy house but it is also old so if you are looking for a 5 stars hotel experience this is not your place. If you are looking for a nice and vibrant experience, this is your place.
I ask my guests:
- Respecting the tidiness and the privacy of the house
- No parties allowed inside the house and no strangers invited in the house neither.
- If you are a smoker, you are still welcome, but please, do not smoke inside the house, only in the patio or in the terrace.
- You can stay in the terrace till 23.00 after that I ask my guests not to stay to respect the sleep of my neighbour

Fabrizio is a wonderful host - friendly and helpful :)
The apartment is in a great location, anywhere is close: to the bus, the subway, on the beach ... interesting neighborhood - close to pubs, shops with fresh fruit ect..
Standard apartment adequate for the price. Apartment is clean, fully furnished, its great advantage is the terrace.
We are very pleased with the choice of this apartment and we recommend them to others :)
Rustic accommodation with a beautiful terrace and very near the beaches and shops.
Logement rustique avec une belle terrasse et très près des plages et des commerces .
We had a great stay in Fab's house in May 2015. Everything was as described, and Fab was a great host - very helpful and super responsive. The location of the house is perfect - 5 mins from the beach and 2 mins from the restaurants of La Rambla de Poblenou.
The traffic/city recycling truck noise can occasionally be loud in the front bedroom, and the boiler will occasionally need a nudge, but Fab highlighted both these things when we arrived, and beyond that, everything about the place is great - love the roof terrace!
Nice Place, nice host and cool neighbourhood super close to the beach. We had a great time.
Fabrizio is a really nice host, always here to provide you everything you need. The flat is perfect if you want enjoy the terrace, there s 3 rooms, beds are not the most confortable but the rest good.
For our stay and the price it was really good Thanks to Fabrizio.
We really enjoyed our stay in Fabrizio's apartment, it was very clean and had all the essentials we needed.
About a 20 min walk to the beach which is manageable although v hot! (but that was part of the reason we chose Barc ;)
The building has alot of stairs or a small lift so bear this in mind if any mobility issues.
Metro just seconds away made exploring very accessible.
All in all a v good stay.
Apartment well located in the city near the underground and within plage.Confort and equipment rudimentaires.Le area is noisy at night. However very welcome Fabrizio. Thank you for its late arrival presence and kindness.

Appartement bien situé en ville à proximité du métro et de la plage.Confort intérieur et équipement rudimentaires.Le quartier est bruyant la nuit. Cependant très bon accueil de Fabrizio. Merci pour sa présence tardive à l'arrivée et sa gentillesse.

Outside the busy city center but close to everything, metro in front of the apartment, only three blocks to the Rambla de Poblenou with restaurants, shops and cheap supermarket. Beach is only 5 to 6 blocks away. Small grocery store on the corner which is open till midnight, bakery half a block away and opens at 7.30. The apartment itself is fine, clean with good showers. The beds are a little bit short if you are tall. The apartment sleeps up to 5 though it would be nice to turn the bedroom with the balcony into a small living room. All in all a very good price-quality and excellent location.
Fabrizio is a very nice host. He provided good information before the time we arrived at the apartment, and very helpfull during the time we stayed there.
Location apartment very well, host of great kindness and helpfulness.
Emplacement appartement très bien, hôte d'une grande gentillesse et serviabilité.
