loved it.

June 20, 2008

perfect location behind picasso museum and close to endless cafes, shops, plazas, etc. The interior steps to the apt. are a bit suspect, but once in the door you are in a haven of comfort and good taste with espresso, sound system, internet, comfy beds and bedding, and great local info -- this is not a spare apt; it is compact, well thought out and luxurious. The owner is extemely helpful. will stay again if we return to barcelona.

Superb apartment in a truly wonderful area of a sensational city! So, so comfortable - a home from home - great attention to detail. So many wonderful restaurants close by - and at the end of the day - a truly comfortable bed! What more could you ask for? Many thanks, Robert, Annie, Carol and David. Hampshire, UK. February 2006.

Another fantastic long weekend in 'La Pometa' - an excellent home from home. It's the perfect pied-a terre in Barcelona. Can't wait until we come back! Gerard and Austin. London, UK. January 2006.

After experiencing two days of thunder and lightening and torrential rain it was lovely to return to the peace and tranquility of such a lovely, spacious flat. The area around was great in every respect and the decor and comfort of the flat just what you need at the end of a long day's walking. Thanks for a lovely retreat. Trisha, Charlotte, Lucy and Jak. Tonbridge - UK. September 2005.

What a pleasure to get of the 'Splendour of the Seas'(Royal Caribbean) after a week of sightseeing in Marseilles, Villefranche, Florence, Rome, Sorrento, and Pompei and to step into 'La Pometa'. We loved the surrounding area with all the little alleyways, shops and eating places. We will be back in a cooler month and we hope to stay here again. Lori, Bill, Liz and Jimmy from NY (Long Island), USA. September 2005.

The apartment was spendid and decor superb! The location is the best in the city for all to enjoy. We could stay a few more weeks and then maybe we would slow down enough to cook in your beautiful kitchen. Rocky and Kevin Hayes, Los Angeles, CA, USA. August 2005.

Dear, dear Kay, You have from the start created the possibility of our having this wonderful time in Barcelona.
