Alojado en Febrero de 2013SimonEl servicio es excelente, hermoso apartamento, una ubicación perfecta. Javier y su te eran muy útiles a lo largo de todo el proceso.
2345Alojado en Abril de 2013PatriciaNos alojamos en este apartamento en abril de 2013. Javier organizó nuestro traslado desde y hacia el aeropuerto, que era muy agradable. El apartamento es espacioso y bien equipado. Está situado en un barrio agradable donde se puede vivir como el Barcelona, ??y comer en los pequeños restaurantes locales y bares de tapas. Al caer la tarde, el sitio de Vila de Gràcia está lleno de niños que juegan después de la escuela, los padres que tienen una bebida, entonces las personas que comen en las terrazas. La estación de metro de Diagonal está a pocos minutos a pie. El único inconveniente: las literas no son muy cómodas, pero para los niños que lo haría.
2345Alojado en Mayo de 2013PhilippeL'appartement est idéalement placé pour visiter Barcelone, avec la station Diagonal à 5 minutes qui permet de rayonner vers tous les sites grâce aux multiples lignes de métro. Le quartier de Gracia est très agréable, sans circulation automobile. L'appartement est grand, fonctionnel avec beaucoup de placards pour les habits, la literie est impeccable pour quatre personnes. Cerise sur le gâteau : l'appartement est décoré avec goût.
2345Alojado en Agosto de 2013DannaOur stay in Barcelona was absolutely perfect due to our amazing stay in this flat! We traveled to Barcelona during Festa de' Gracia and were pleasantly surprised to be located directly above the square where all the main events took place. As a group of 6 friends (3 couples), we were so happy to be in the middle of all the festivities. The flat itself was absolutely beautiful and was definitely our most spacious and also most affordable stay compared to all the different locations we stayed in Europe (we rented 5 different flats in different countries). Communication with the owner was always prompt, and he even reached out to us after our first night to make sure our stay was pleasant. We loved how unique and authentic the flat was, with brick walls and hard wood flooring. The air conditioning and the washer and dryer were also a huge plus! We ate dinner in the square below us twice, we recommend having Tapa's at "BO" directly across the square from the apartment.
Alojado en Octubre de 2013NatashaThe host was extremely helpful and gracious. Location could not have been better. Easy to walk to most main sites. Square where flat is located make you feel like you are living in Barcelona and a part of the community. Plus has great bars, restaurants and shops. Apartment is well equipped and very comfortable. A great find I would recommend and return!
Our group of 3 adults and 3 kids loved the 3 nights at the Gracia apartment. Javier responded quickly to our emails, helped us figure out that we had overloaded the circuit with all the AC's on (they work fine, it was just hot that day), and arranged for taxis to pick us up upon departure. He was an excellent host! The apartment was our favorite during our 3 week trip in Spain (all apartment rentals) because of the location, the spaciousness, and the decor. We were also pleasantly surprised by the luxury of having a clothes dryer! The neighborhood is fun with bars and shops and restaurants. We highly recommend Javier's apartment, and wish we could have stayed longer. Muchisimas gracias por todo, Javier! Lo pasamos de maravilla. Teresa San Diego, CA
Spent a delightful 2 weeks in Barcelona (Sept. 2013) enjoying Javier’s apartment at Villa de Gracia and the wonderful people we met in Spain. It was a great experience to actually live among Barcelona residents and not feel like we were caught in the hustle of the tourist area (after walking Las Ramblas you are happy to get out of the rat race!). Returning “home” after a busy day exploring, it was nice to relax, look out the balcony window and enjoy viewing life on the plaza. We enjoyed the large kitchen table which functioned as our “desk” for planning outings. Javier is a delightful host- not intrusive at all- but he checks in frequently to make sure his guests have everything they need and to answer any questions they may have regarding the apartment, city, where to obtain event tickets etc. He is a great concierge and we were lucky to have someone so warm and charming to help us. Javier arranged for our pickup and drop-off at the airport. It was so nice to have someone waiting at the baggage claim area to pick you up and take you to the apartment. Totally non-stressful way to arrive in a new country! The Villa de Gracia plaza is quite an active place- we enjoyed Sunday afternoon concerts on the plaza, a variety of stores and restaurants and watching the local residents visit with each other in the evenings. If you are a light sleeper, you might want to pack a pair of earplugs as weekend evenings can be quite busy and somewhat noisy-but very fun!. The metro is a short walk (buy a T-10 pass for the metro!) and there are local markets and numerous shops within a few blocks. This is definitely an area for walking. I will miss my café con leche in the mornings along with fresh croissants! There were numerous bakeries very close to the apartment and they are all great! Thank You Javier for a wonderful vacation and many memories. Hopefully we can return someday. I would definitely return to Javier's apartment. Linda T. Fremont,California USA
This was truly a charming apartment with an absolutely amazing location. We were there with 2 children and they loved the plaza and playing with and watching all the other children in the afternoon. We tried two of the restaurants on the plaza and found the food extremely good. The ice cream stores were also amazing. Javier was extremely helpful, easily available by phone and even arranged a taxi to pick up my mother in the airport in the morning. Well worth the stay. I would certainly return to this apartment if I go back to Barcelona!
Great apartment, we really enjoyed our stay here over 4 nights. Lovely square below the apartment too and fairly handy to metro, supermarkets etc. Host was great and provided baby cot and high chair upon request at no extra charge, thank you very much
The reviews others left and the pictures of the apartment convinced us this was the place to rent during our visit to Barcelona. We could not have been happier with the apartment, Javier's attention to our stay, and the fantastic neighborhood. Every afternoon when the kids got out of school they swarmed the plaza and played for hours -- from tiny toddlers to teenagers. What a wonderful way to grow up! It was a special place to return to when we were tired of sightseeing. Don't shop in the high rent stores along the Passeig de Gracia -- there are wonderful shops on the side streets that have treasures to discover. We found a fantastic mosaic place where we bought a unique piece of art and would have taken a class if we had the time. Finally, the apartment is beautiful, welcoming and comfortable. We are so happy that we stayed there.
L'appartamento e' pulito e confortevole....centralissimo....lo raccomando!
Le quartier est vraiment très sympathique. Un peu bruyant, mais très animé. Proche de tout, du métro, des bus, du centre ville... L'appartement est agréable malgré le vis à vis des bureaux un peu gênant. L'appartement était très propre et bien équipé. Et l'accueil de JAvier très agréable et sympathique. A recommander !
Javier's apartment is spacious and comfortable and in a perfect location. And Javier made sure everything was OK during my stay. I can't imagine a better place to hang my hat in Barcelona.
Our stay in Paseo de Gracia was fantastic. We had two couples and our 8 year old son all staying here together. We absolutely loved the plaza and were out sitting having our cafes in the morning and out sitting till at least midnight every night - it was always full of interesting people, music and wonderful conversation and food. The location was great for walking to many different areas - we walked every day in a different direction. We were also close to the metro and the train was easy to navigate. Lots of great boutique shops, wonderful food and of course, amazing architecture and history to be seen.
Javiers Wohnung ist super-zentral in Gracia gelegen an einem sehr belebtem Platz. Gracia ist ein tolles, junges Quartier mit schönen, kleinen Läden. Wer die grösseren Ketten bevorzugt ist in 4 Minuten am Passeig de Gracia, eine sehr grosse Ladenstrasse, die zur Rambla führt. Die Wohnung ist sehr gross und die Küche ist mit allem, was man braucht ausgestattet. (es gibt sogar eine Waschmaschine!). Das Wohnzimmer ist gross und die Küche riesig und mit dem grossen Tisch super für gemeinsame Frühstücks geeignet. Ich würde jederzeit wieder in diese Wohnung kommen!
Stayed in Javier's apartment at the end of August for a week and really liked our stay. The location is great overlooking a nice square and proximity to supermarkets and local food halls for fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat is a big plus. The apartment was spacious, well set up, calm and clean and had all the necessary amenities (although a dishwasher would be nice) for a comfortable say. He was very helpful in organising the pick up by his recommended driver from Girona airport and also arranged an early morning pickup on departure. Arranged cot bed for a 3-year old at no extra cost which was appreciated He was very quick to respond questions sent by e-mail and also reachable on his mobile throughout our stay. Our first experience with airbnb and we thoroughly enjoyed. No hesitation to recommend Javier's flat to families especially ( we arrived there with our 3 children ages 3, 10 and 12).
It was so great to have the taxi pick us up Wed morning and take us to the airport. One less stress to deal with. You were a most gracious host during our stay and we all wish to express our thanks. The residents of the plaza were wonderful to be around. I never imagined how busy that place is. We became acquainted with several of the store owners on the plaza and were sorry to have to leave all the new "friends". I appreciated mingling with real people and not just other tourists. It added to our travel experience and we all enjoyed it. I like getting to know an area and the people. It's a much better experience than isolating yourself in a tourist hotel. Your apartment worked out just fine for us and using the metro was quite simple once we got the hang of it. I enjoyed shopping at the local markets and stores- great fun. Thank You Javier from all 3 of us- for contributing to a wonderful vacation experience. I will be submitting my review this week and rest assured it will be positive. You're a great host and get a thumbs up from all 3 of us. Wish we could have met you. Take CareLinda
Carol - July 2013 - We just loved this apartment and the Gracia area. So much better to be away from the tourists in a real Spanish neighborhood. We loved the restaurants in the plaza and the shopping in the area. The apartment was very accomodating for four friends. We had some great evenings around the kitchen table. Having never rented internationally we were a little uncertain what we would find but you can rest easy. Javier was a great host and you will enjoy your stay here. 30 de Julio de 2013

Exactly as described. Very charming place in a great location. Would stay there again in a heartbeat.
I can't recommend Javier's apartment highly enough; our family stayed here for a week and loved it! The apartment is in a lovely lovely residential area with lots of great restaurants and is an easy walk to some of Barcelona's tourist attractions. Javier was incredibly helpful, and couldn't do enough to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible. The square the apartment faces onto was a hit with our two boys; lots of other little ones to run around with, and great pizza and gelato shops to boot.
Beautiful, spacious apartment with full amenities in a great location that's great for families. This apt was full of Spanish charm and is located in a lively square with many Tapas restaurants and kids kicking soccer balls. We were traveling w kids so it was great to simply go downstairs and have a safe area for our son to run around while we dined alfresco at one of the many restaurants on the square. If you don't have kids it's still great because the apt is in a central location with easy access to the Metro or you can walk to a lot of areas - esp if you want to shop! Gracia is a lively neighborhood that isn't overrun with tourists and huge chain stores like down in Las Ramblas and Catalunya area. You feel like a local. I loved waking up and stopping at nearby little shops for bread, cheese, etc. The apt was amazing! Tons of space, washer and dryer, a/c and beautiful furnishings. Javier, the owner, is extremely helpful and so kind. He arranged taxis for us and even made a doctor appt for me when I got sick! He really wants you to enjoy your stay and makes himself readily available for any concern or questions you may have. This apt made our vacation very special because it really felt like our home and we were very sad to leave.

Amazing place to stay in Barcelona! The apartment is absolutely clean, very spacious, cozy with nice art deco. It is very centrally located in the middle of a lovely neighborhood with a plaza right outside the door and good restaurants and shops nearby and in walking distance to anything and anywhere in Barcelona. Javier was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with; we also had a hassle-free airport pick-up and drop-off arranged by him. It felt like home away from home for the 4 of us. We had an excellent experience and really enjoyed our time here! Highly recommended! Dani, Franzi, Patrick, Ralf
Posizione molto buona, 500m da metro Fontana e Diagonal, 300 m da autobus. Appartamento delizioso, pulito. In quattro ci sis stava benissimo, silenzioso la notte.
This is a delightful place to stay. Everything about it was wonderful. It is large, beautiful, very comfortable, convenient and a good overall value. We stayed with our two adult children and it was very comfortable and nice to have such a large space. The place is very well equipped and there was nothing we needed that it didn’t have. It was a delight to sit in the living room and watch all the activity in the square. It is on the square, but very quiet. The bedrooms are in the back of the apartment. The pictures are very accurate. The place is beautiful. The area – Gracia – is the best area to be in in Barcelona. There is lots going on and it is a real neighborhood. Javier was terrific. We never met him but he was very helpful – suggesting restaurants and helping with transportation – and always very quick to respond. Overall this is a terrific place. I would go back in a heartbeat and hope to have the chance to do so.
We had an excellent experience with this lovely apartment in Barcelona. Javier was extremely helpful and a pleasure to deal with. Highly recommended.
We stayed at Javier’s place over Easter holidays in 2013. The apartment is very centrally located, with restaurants and shops nearby and major attractions more or less 2km from it. We were impressed by how much character the apartment has. It is no surprise that Javier put in a lot of effort into furnishing his apartment and he helped with with our queries with the same attention. One highlight is that, our 6 year old son really enjoyed playing street soccer every day right downstairs with the kids from the neighbourhood. It’s amazing how welcoming and inclusive the locals are!
The apartment is fantastic, quiet, clean, large, and a great location. We fell in love with the plaza, and truly enjoyed our time there.
Unforgettable weekend in the heart of Gracia. The house is spacius, clean, cozy, and central and Javier super reliable and attentive. The perfect spot to spend a long weekend with friends in Barcelona!
Estuvimos muy a gusto. Resultó ser lo que parecía y eso es de agradecer. Zona estupenda, casa amplia, anfitrión atento. Repetiría.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this delightful flat with our young daughters. The square is ideal for children to play in as mainly pedestrianised with plenty of seating either on benches or at one of the many cafes. Our girls played football and were joined by some friendly and polite local boys. Gracia is a rather bohemian area with plenty of attractive boutiques, small supermarkets and tempting delicatessens along its many narrow streets. The bus stops are close by, the service is excellent and we hopped on them to get to the city centre, beach, old town, Montjuic and Park Guell. The flat was clean and comfortable with fresh white linen and towels and a lovely well-equipped kitchen. Even in February there was a fiesta with a group of drummers playing in the square to appreciative crowds: we had the best view from the flat’s balcony!
This is a lovely spacious apartment in a wonderful location. We particularly enjoyed watching life on the square which over the Christmas period felt very untouristy. Shopping locally was a real pleasure and there is an abundance of fine food and wine to be had in the specialist shops on the square and nearby (including from the deli downstairs). The apartment itself is comfortable and well equipped without detriment to its period charm. The kitchen in particular has been beautifully fitted out. We would have no hesitation in returning on another occasion.
Nous avons séjourné du 1er au 9 janvier dans cet appartement. Il est très bien situé, dans un quartier très animé. L'appartement est vaste. Il est typique et bien décoré. Le métro est tout près (5 minutes). Les deux salles de bain sont très pratiques pour les familles. Nous nous sentions chez nous. Petits bémols: le divan-lit pourrait être plus confortable et les voisins sont très bruyants.
El apartamento se encuentra en el barrio de Gracia y es ideal para conocer Barcelona. El Metro Diagonal y Fontana quedan a 5 minutos del apartamento. El piso esta en perfectas condiciones, muy limpio, muy amplio, una cocina bella y cuenta con WIFI, Television y telefono. Uno siempre puede contar con la ayuda de Javier si uno tiene alguna duda o necesita informacion sobre la ciudad. Sin mas este piso es la oportunidad perfecta para una familia, amigos o parejas de pasarla bien en Barcelona. Lo recomiendo 100% !!!
We were in BCN for 4 days and were very happy with Javier's flat. We were 2 adults & 2 kids and recommend staying with Javier. The flat is well equipped, spacious, clean and very well located in the center of Barcelona.
Hans: Fabulous location and apartment. Stayed four nights with family including two young children and we all enjoyed it greatly. The spacious apartment faces onto a wonderful square buzzing with life, but despite much late-night activity there, noise was no problem as the bedrooms are towards back of apartment, and windows are sound-excluding. The kitchen is large and had all we needed for cooking our own meals. Also found good restaurants in the area. Make sure you set some time aside to walk the local streets which has lots of interesting, independent shops, certainly a better shopping experience than the centre. Underground stops of gracia and diagonal are within 5-6 minutes walk, the latter next to La Pedrera. Easy access to most of the city from these two stops.
Simone: Hallo liebes Team von housetrip, das Appartement war einfach wunderbar, räumlich sehr großzügig und man fühlte sich gleich sehr willkommen. Die Lage hätte nicht besser sein können; etwas ruhiger in einheimischem Umfeld und dennoch sehr zentral gelegen. Die nächste Metro war ca. 10 Minuten fußläufig erreichbar oder man konnte auch gut zu Fuß die Stadt schnell erreichen. Der Gastgeber ist sehr freundlich und warmherzig und der Kontakt war ohne Schwierigkeiten über diese Plattform. Alles in allem war es ein nahezu perfekter Trip. Es war bestimmt nicht der letzte Besuch von Barcelona und wir haben eine gute Adresse für's nächste Mal;-)
Our stay at Javier's property in Vila de Gracia was as good as it gets. The apartment was spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated. We traveled with two children and all of us lived enjoyably for several days with room to spare. Every amenity we needed was here as listed in the air BNB website. In addition to the comfort we felt in the apartment Javier himself also took great care to ensure a pleasant stay for us. For a small additional fee he had a driver pick us up and drop us off at the airport and he made several (spot on) suggestions for our family in terms of restaurants and activities. Javier was a joy to work with and his place was a joy to stay at. We recommend it highly also because of the lively square right outside where you can get great dinners, drinks, fresh bread, produce and gelato all within 50 feet of your door! Another nice feature: if and when the din of the crowd gets to be too much you can just shut the virtually sound-poof windows and it's as quiet as a library inside. If you are going to Barcelona you owe it to yourself to consider this place to stay.
Javier is an amazing place and his beautiful apartment , overlooking one of Barcelona's beautiful village squares, is fantastic! Below the terrace, children play, adults sip coffee, and the life of a village unfolds before your eyes. Yet you in the heart of Barcelona. Truly marvelous!
Bertrand: Javier nous a très bien accueilli et conseillé, l'appartement est charmand, bien placé, propre, nous avons passé un très bon séjour.
Très beau condo et aussi très propre, mes amis et moi avons adoré cet endroit ! En plus d'être très bien situé, ce condo est très bien décoré, surtout la cuisine ! Le propriétaire Javier, sa femme et son garçon, nous on très bien reçu, ils ont même téléphoné le lendmain pour savoir si tout était OK ! Si on ne veux pas trop marché, il y a plusieurs bons restos à même le quadrilatère du condo. En plus l'avenue si réputée des Ramblas est tout près. Si jamais nous avons la chance de retourner à Barcelone, nous louerons encore ce super condo ! Le seul petit "hic" c'est que c'est au 3e étage pas d'ascenceur, mais quand même on s'habitue.... Sylvie, Pierre, Sylvie et Gérald du Québec ! Thank to all of you. Thank you very much for your comment. I only would want to specify that the flat is the second as shown in the direction instead of third as mentioned. Otherwise thank you very much for taking the time to write your comments and we hope to see you again.
Great location and spacious. If you want to have a taste of the live in Barcelona that's the place to be. Furthermore Javier was always available and willing to help. We especially appreciate the arrangements he made for a pick-up / drop-off at the BCN airport, it made the whole experience quite enjoyable... a big thank to "Edourado, the taxi driver. People should note that the environment is very noisy at night and you will likely have to close the windows for a god night of sleep. We recommend this appartement wholeheartedly
Javier's apartment in Gracia is perfection. It is located in a charming little square, Plaza de VIla, with everything you could possibly need within walking distance. There were many restaurants, markets, shops, gelato stands, caffe's, etc all out our front door. The Fontana metro station is an easy 5-7 minute walk and Joanic is also near by. We felt like we were in a little town in a big city in Gracia. It is hands down, my favorite neighborhood. The apartment itself is very spacious and clean. We were only 3 but there was more than enough room for 2-3 more people to sleep comfortably. The kitchen was well equipped and spacious to move around comfortably. The apartment had very charming details. We felt right at home. Javier made sure that we were happy with everything and was very attentive and quick to respond to any of our questions or problems. Next time I am in Barcelona, I really hope to stay here again! Thank you for making my first experience with airbnb so delightful, Javier!
Adding to those previous excellent reviews about this marvelous apartment, you won't be disappointed about what this apartment has to offer. It was an incredible experience to live in this neighborhood, with kids playing around, old couple sitting around the central area, excellent ice cream shop just nearby. The apartment really does give you a feel of the '' european lifestyle ''. There's a touch of art in every room and the kitchen is really big. We had a wonderful time just gathering in the kitchen after a long day of visiting barcelona. Also, the living room has a really nice view on the central court of the neighborhood, which makes it more enjoyable. Oli and Ano!

Our family of four (3 adults and 1 teen) enjoyed our stay at this apartment. It was clean and comfortable and had a great kitchen to work in. The air conditioning was especially appreciated during our warm August stay. The plaza outside was interesting to watch local life and there are plenty of good places to eat all around. It was conveniently located to Gaudi's Casa Batlo and the Pedrera, and Guell Park was only a couple of metro stops away. Future visitors should take note of Javier's comments about the stairs being narrow, and especially narrower on the last flight up. People lugging heavy bags might find it tough. Javier was an accomodating and gracious host. He was helpful with suggestions about where to shop for groceries, where to park, and so on. We recommend this place to anyone wanting to have a neighborhood experience in Barcelona. Virginia and Christopher O'Hara West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA

Review Submitted: 16 August 2012 Date of Stay: July 2012Beautiful apartment with excellent facilities (though it could do with a dvd player), very clean and bright, exactly as the photos show. Location on the square was great when travelling with children, plenty of space for them to run around while parents can sit and relax in the numerous restaurants and cafe's around the square. There was a small fiesta while we were there and we were treated to a full orchestra playing one evening. Plenty of small unique shops in the area. The owner was very helpful in every regard. Highly recommended.Owner's Response: Thank you for your review.Come back again.JavierRating5 out of 5
Javier's apartment is a true find. The location is perfect -- central to lots of the city, but not down amidst the throngs of tourists in the Barri Gotic. The square upon which the front room looks out is gorgeous, and a true slice of "real" life in Barcelona....kids playing, older folks sitting out, young people chatting at the cafes. A fabulous speciality food store downstairs if you are in the mood for do-it-at-home tapas, and the Gracia market just 4 blocks away. The apartment itself is lovely....lots of room, and full of interesting touches that honor the architectural traditions of the city. Not at all a sterile "rental apartment" feel. Javier was very warm and helpful with any questions or requests. A thorough treat!
A large and comfortable flat in a terrifc part of town. Cinco Estrellas! Everything went smoothly and Javier was super helpful. It was delightful to see people of all ages hanging out in the Plaza and the beautiful young couples getting married at the adjacent municipal offices.
Beautiful and great location apartment. Great host. Everything was perfect. The square right in front gives a great view and gives you everything you need. Vegie shops, Cheeses and Ham, Ice cream , Pizza, Bars and great food places. The best of a Catalan experience. Will come back anytime.
While we only had 5 days to explore Barcelona, we very much enjoyed what we saw. Javier was a very helpful host and we loved the Gracia area where the apartment is located. The apartment is beautiful!
Barcelona is our new favorite city thanks to Javier's charming apartment in a perfect location. Though close enough for tourist excursions we loved being part of an old and very spanish neighborhood. We spend hours on the balcony watching the people in the square below. The house is charming and colorful with tall ceilings and air conditioning. The kitchen was a great place to cook and hang out in. The metro was close and Javier did everything to make our trip smooth and special. When we return we will stay at Javier's.
A dream vacation! This place is unbelievably beautiful and located perfectly in the pleasant neighborhood of Gracia overlooking the square. Javier was the ideal host. He was accommodating, friendly and extremely helpful in providing suggestions and recommendations for our visit to Barcelona. We are most thankful for his help in calling a taxi for us to get to the airport at 4 am. We would highly recommend this place!!!
My stay at Javier's apartment was excellent. Located in a nice, well off neighbourhood (right in the centre of Gracia square) where you can live like a proper local for a few weeks. (the place is not far from the centre of Barcelona. Only two stops from plaza Catalunya.) There's a local market where they sell fresh produce daily and nice, hidden cafes, bars and the squares everywhere. The apartment itself is very charming, oozing local charm with tiled floor and hifg ceilings with a little personal touches here and there from the owner so you can tell the guy is into everything artsy. The focal point of the house is the kitchen. It's huge!! For those of you who like to cook should go to the local market and prepare a nice meal there. So there, if you want to live like a local for a short period of time, this apartment is the one for you and I love Javier.
Wonderful apartment, lovely location, and Javier is the perfect host! I warmly recommend it!
Notre famille de cinq personnes a adoré ce superbe appartement très spacieux, très propre, et très bien situé stratégiquement dans un quartier charmant et sécuritaire pour nos enfants. Le propriétaire a offert un service courtois et restait en contact par courriel et téléphone pour répondre rapidement à toutes nos questions. En résumé, nous avons passé un séjour très agréable dans cet appartement que je recommande vivement.
