The Experience

Fifteen minutes from Barcelona, in one of those rather classy Spanish ‘urbanizacións’, is a well-kept modern townhouse at the top of the hill, with a pretty view of Torrelles de Llobregat. You can walk to restaurants, listen to the birds, the station is nearby and your host looks after you beautifully. The house is on three floors with the salon on the ground floor (listen to music, borrow a book, help yourself to coffee), the dining room above with two guest bedrooms, and two more bedrooms at the very top. The rooms are immaculate in modern hotel style, with deep beds, snazzy fabrics, big windows, one with air con and free WiFi, another with its own little terrace. Bathrooms are spotless. If you want to be driven to the station to see Barcelona yet sleep in peace this is the place for you: swoon over delicious jams, fruit, cereals, eggs and hams; enjoy multilingual Paula’s freshly-baked muffins and scones. It’s a very nice set-up for families too, with a pool in the garden and Catalunya en Miniatura nearby: a most adventurous model village.

We had a great time staying at Paula’s. We were only there for a long weekend and she was really helpful in booking things for us and advising us when would be a good time to visit different places so we could make the most of our time in Barcelona. We were welcomed into her home and she was really accommodating in making sure we could have breakfast when we wanted to leave early in the morning. She really enabled us to have a great weekend.

Vittoria, Norwich

Lovely room, lovely helpful hosts, great food, thoroughly recommended

Linda, Torrelles de Llobregat

Our stay at countrysideBCN exceeded our expectations. The hosts Paula and Carlas were extremely helpful and caring towards all of us. They went above and beyond their call of duty. (helping us with recommendations, transport, arranging massages, giving us information and cooking for the whole family) We were 4 adults and 2 young children, one of our children suffers with food allergys and Paula was able to cook food for us whilst being mindful of his allergys, she produced some of the best food we have ever tasted! We would highly recommend staying here.

Sophie, London

We had the most wonderful stay here. It was like staying with Spanish relations. Paula is an encyclopaedia of knowledge about the food, culture and history of Barcelona and the Catalan area. We liked the contrast of staying in the countryside ( with a swimming pool) and the ability to commute by train into the city. Trains were frequent and cheap. Paula and Carlos speak excellent English so we didn’t have any communication issues. We didn’t hire a car as Paula offers a chauffeur service whenever you need it. Breakfasts are great and other meals are worth requesting as Paula is a fabulous cook.

Helen, Harrogate

Such a warm welcome here from Paula and her husband, Carles. They made it all so easy - from picking us up at the airport to dropping us to the railway station as we left for Barcelona a couple of days later. During our stay they provided a taxi service, transport advice, recommendations on the local and city sights and last, but definitely not least, the most delicious food! Nearby there is the fascinating Colonia Guell to visit and we enjoyed a hike through the almond orchards in full bloom. The room was spacious and comfortable, and everywhere spotless. Highly recommended!

Penny, London

As a first experience of Barceloña, you could not do better than this. It isn´t just a charming house run by a lovely couple, its an airport collection service, advice bureau, tour arranger, English-speaker, menu translator, technology adviser and boarding pass printer. Especially recommended for dinosaurs. You come as guests but you leave as family.

Stephen, Wokingham, UK

we had a truly wonderfultime at countryside bcn. Paula and Carles were so welcoming, friendly, helpful and always available for advices or any kind of help. Apart from visiting barcelona which is only a 25 min drive, there were so many other activities available, visiting the beautiful colonia guell, going for walks in the mountain, etc, or simply enjoy this beautiful,comfortable and welcoming place, laze by the pool and enjoy Paula`s fantastic meals. we look forward to come again!

claire, brussels

Outstanding Boutique Bed and Breakfast. We would highy recommended staying here. Paula and Carlos are very hospitable and they are very happy to advise on things to see and where to park in Barcelona. Only 20 minutes from the City centre. Lovely clean swimming pool and Boutique bedrooms. Paula is a superb cook with lovely breakfasts and home baked pastries; try her paella for dinner! Will definately stay again and highly recommend staying here.

Steve, Stratford upon Avon

I really enjoyed my stay. Paula and Carles made me feel very welcome. Enjoyed a welcome dinner on my first night after being collected from the airport. My room was really comfortable. Breakfasts were delicious. Paula helped me plan my visits into Barcelona. Next time I would like to stay longer

Caroline, Berkhamsted

Everything about our stay was wonderful. Paula picked us up from the airport, cooked the most amazing food, and helped us work out how to get into Barcelona on the train. Our room was really comfortable and we enjoyed staying by the pool. A perfect place to stay; we were looking for peace and quiet but then were able to get into Barcelona. Paula is a wonderful cook and we had some lovely evening meals including the night of our 25th wedding anniversary when she made us a special cake. We will definitely return. We have stayed in many B+B's in many different countries but this is the best.

Karen, Rugby

We spent two nights with Paula and Carles. Carles picked us up at the airport for the 20 minute drive to their home, then took us to catch the train into Barcelona. We later rented a car, but this B&B is very accessible by train. Our room was lovely, and I have not slept so well in a long time. Very comfortable. We most enjoyed our hosts' and fellow guests' companionship at breakfast and dinner, as well as a welcome retreat from the crowded streets and restaurants of Barcelona. Paula was most helpful on suggestions for lunch and attractions in Barcelona.

Robin, Dallas

Fantastic. Paula really made our holiday. A perfect hostess. She looked after us wonderfully, from breakfast to dinner. Paula was so helpful, booking trips and tickets for us and giving us so much information about getting around in Barcelona. Paula and Carles were really what made our stay so special. We had 6 nights with then in June 2017. Anyone looking for somewhere to stay near Barcelona should stay here, its perfect for getting into the city but also for visiting beaches and swimming in the pool after a hot day. We had paella with Paula and family on our last night. Thankyou both so much

Karen, Romsey

Very lovely and comfortable house. We were very happy to have the peace of staying outside the city but Barcelona and its beaches are pretty easy to access by car (no more than 30 mins). Paula and Carlos are enormously friendly and knowledgeable, and went out of their way to make our stay a comfortable and happy one. Delicious food as well...! Thank you

Tom, London

We had a great stay with Paula and Carles. The property itself is comfortable and inviting, and for such a tranquil setting, the proximity to Barcelona was amazing. We enjoyed delicious Catalan meals, and they even went out of their way to cater to the whims of our picky eating 5 year old son. We will definitely return!


Paula and Carlos couldn't have been more helpful. The breakfasts and dinner were excellent. We preferred to stay outside the city and found the train journey in very straightforward. As we had a car it was also very easy to get to Montserrat. Chatting to Paula felt like talking to a friend and we felt that we knew and were completely at home in this corner of Spain.

Susan, Lancaster

A great house and owners showing you the best walks and places that no guide will show you. Feeling after a long time more than at home, completely spoiled with amazing breakfast, quiet location and great mild temperatures with a great sun in December! If you need a break from the winter or from anything, this is your place to be!

Jimena, The Hague

Home away from home Carles and Paula (hosts) made me feel right at home and they really take care of you and are very helpful. The rooms are spacious, clean and the beds are super comfortable! Better than my own bed! If I wanted to go to Barcelona, it was only 15 minutes away. A beautiful balance between city excitement and relaxed environment at the guest house. Added bonus is that Paula loves to prepare breakfast herself. it felt like home away from home. Thank you Carles and Paula for being super hosts!

Diana, Cape Town

Lovely warm, welcoming stay with new friends, Paula and Carles. Immaculate house, garden and pool in a countryside setting with the sounds of cicadas, chickens and birds to lull you into holiday mode. Lovely breakfast, all the homemade food is prepared with care and skill, nothing is too much trouble, children loved it too. We would happily return one day.

Tara, Bangor

Exceptionally friendly and welcoming, gentle, thoughtful and kind hosts. Spotlessly clean home. They also provide delightful, Catalan style, food--do eat here.

Andrew, Calgary

We have just spent a fantastic 5 nights at this B&B which we recommend very highly. Warm & friendly welcome, spotlessly clean house in a peaceful area, the most comfortable bed & good bathroom (Cielo room), great choice for breakfast, delicious cooking (welcome meal plus a special one for New Year's Eve). Our visit to Barcelona & area was wonderful, not least because of Paula & Carles who care so much for their guests. They showed us to the station and explained the tickets & routes, bought us tickets for visits on-line, offered advice & recommendations..........merci mille fois!

Hélène, Monceaux sur Dordogne
