We normally have a toddler in tow when we stay at The Garden Flat, so we like to think that we’ve covered off most of the stuff that you’ll need if you are a family visiting Barcelona.
The flat is on the ground floor, so there are no stairs or lifts to negotiate with buggies.
There is a 30 square metre garden at the back, and a long hallway for toddlers to run down which should help wear them out, and there’s plenty of space to store all of the usual gear that you end up lugging around with you.
We can supply a travel cot on request and a box of toys to keep the litte ones amused, and there´s a selection of kid´s DVD´s that might give you a break every now and then.
We also offer a baby sitting service on request.
The flat is child friendly and comes equipped with a high chair and all the plates and cutlery that you´ll need to keep the kids fed.
For trips out, we recommend the CosmoCaixa (arguably the finest science museum in Europe), the Aquarium, the Zoo and Parc Guell. There’s a great little playground off Calle Rosello (with a couple of cafés about 10 minutes from the flat), and another on Calle Aragon. And of course there’s always the beach and the marina at Port Vell (there’s a good tapas place over the bridge).
