This is the ideal place to visit the city of Barcelona and its surroundings, as well as to enjoy at the same time of the tranquillity. Molins de Rei is well communicated by road and by public transport. Barcelona center is available in 20 minutes (Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Museo Picaso, Las Ramblas, Parque Guell, Port Olimpic, etc...)
The integrated train ticket for 10 trips (train, metro, bus, tram, railways) valid for 1:15h each trip, costs € 10,20.
There are beaches and coastal towns (Barceloneta, Castelldefels, Vilanova, Sitges) few km. distance.
We are also very close to the mountain of Montserrat and other beautiful countryside places
The house is located in the upper town from 10mn to the train station.
The apartment has 92 m2 and it has two floors; on the first floor are the large bedroom (10 m2) with a double bed (2m x 1.50m), another large bedroom (9,5m2) with a trundle bed, two bathrooms, my office, kitchen (with washing machine, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer...), the living room and a balcony (8 m2).
On the second floor there is a large private terrace (64 m2) (this is our favourite place in the house!).
We have computer that you can use with Internet and wi-fi available.
We have a wide car park (15 m2) in the same building.

You can go by car or public transport to visit landmarks of Barcelona: Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, Parc Guell, the Port Olimpic, the Picasso Museum, Las Ramblas, etc ..
And if you have a car you can visit the Costa Brava (Cadaqués, Empúries, etc.), and charming towns like Girona, Tarragona, among others; but you can also easily go by train.

C'est l'endroit idéal pour visiter la ville de Barcelone et ses environs, ainsi que pour profiter, en même temps, de la tranquillité d'un village comme Molins de Rei. Ce village est  bien desservi par la route, et aussi par les transports en commun (train, tram, bus…). Non seulement Barcelone centre (Plaza Catalunya) est accessible en une vingtaine de minutes, mais aussi d’autres grandes villes de Catalogne sont proches.
Il y a des plages et des villes côtières (Barceloneta, Castelldefels, Sitges) à quelques kilomètres.
Nous sommes également très proches de la montagne de Montserrat et d'autres beaux paysages de campagne.
La maison est située dans la partie haute du village. L'appartement est sur deux niveaux, la partie habitable est au premier (deux chambres, deux salles de bains avec toilettes, un bureau, une cuisine et un salon), et au second nous avons une grande terrasse (c'est notre endroit préféré dans la maison!).
Nous avons un grand parking dans le même bâtiment.
Vous pouvez aller en voiture ou en transport en commun visiter des lieux mythiques de Barcelone: la Sagrada Familia, La Pedrera, le Parc Guell, Port Olimpic, le musée Picasso, les Ramblas, etc ..
Et si vous disposez d’une voiture, vous pourrez visiter la Costa Brava (Cadaqués, Empurias, etc.), et des villes charmantes comme celles de Gérone, Tarragone, entre autres; mais vous pouvez facilement aller en train.
