A double room in a unique villa located on top of Tibidabo, with a lovely garden, an amazing swimming pool and spectacular views over the city. Perfect for those who want to be in a relaxed environment, enjoy the privacy and intimacy and still be 20min from the center of Barcelona.

Interaction with guests

We are Øyvin from Norway and Martha from Colombia. Since 2000 we have been living in this old library on the roof of Barcelona, which we have and are still renovating. We are travelers, and love discovering new places by land. We went around the world with our own Toyota Land Cruiser for about 5 years ago with our 4 kids ((URL HIDDEN) Now that our kids are all studying or working abroad, we want to open our house to meet travelers like us, that want to experience the local life in a distinct neighborhood of Barcelona, and share their experiences with us.

Other things to note

1) We have a young, energetic but very beautiful and good german shepherd called Black.

2) We host events such as small concerts and events, so the kitchen may sometimes not be available and can only be used on-request.

Located on the top of Mount Tibidabo with incredible views of Barcelona below. We enjoyed our easy funicular and tram ride up/down to the city and our quite oasis waiting for us at the end of our day. With everything that was going on in Barcelona during the time we were visiting, it was comforting to get away from the hustle & bustle and stay in a beautiful private suite. Martha and her husband are incredible hosts and made us feel comfortable and apart of their family. It was nice to start the day with a healthy breakfast, great conversation and tips on where, what to do and to how to get there.

A beautiful place located upon the hills of Tibidabo. Well worth the journey to get here and very close to excellent public transportation. Martha and her family are incredibly kind and made us feel right at home. We are travelling with a toddler and they were very accommodating.

Martha and her family curate an amazing historical property which was the library of Almirall. Almirall was a founding figure in the Catalan independence movement. It was a real honor to stay in such a significant, beautiful, and serene setting. But what made my stay great was simply interacting with Martha and her family. Martha is incredibly kind, open, interesting and generous as a host. She has a wonderful family who are all inspirational people. This is what the sharing economy and airbnb are all about.

Superb room and location - views are stunning Martha and family (and Black the dog) were very friendly and bent over backwards to help us- booking trips, taxis etc. Lovely breakfasts. Highly recommended

This was such a great spot to be at during my time in Barcelona! Martha and her family were so welcoming and hospitable--I felt like a part of the family immediately. The location has a private entrance, so you can come and go as you please. The house is a bit farther outside of the city than expected, but the view is spectacular, and the house is so beautiful (make sure to ask for a tour of the salon). Thank you again Martha for a lovely home away from home.

Words can not even scratch the surface to the deep positive impact and memories, Martha and her lovely family left in our hearts, while sharing their home for a few days with us. Inspiring. Warm-Hearted. True Philantropists.
