Pere & Jordi Puigdefàbregas Serra
Casa-Serra 1919 Barcelona
Roger de Llúria 125 (3r)
Dear Mrs. Puigdefàbregas Serra:
It has been the distinct pleasure of our extended
family to stay in Casa Serra for the past two
weeks during our holiday in Barcelona. The apartment
exceeded all of our expectations, and greatly
enhanced out enjoyment of this wonderful city.
Please allow me to elaborate on a number of
features from a guest´s perspective that
may be helpful to prospective tenants in the
The location is central and in a very nice area.
We never had any apprehension walking to and
from our late night outings. The building is
quite secure with a locked front gate. Shopping,
restaurants, markets, and metro station are
only a short walk away - and a wonderful bakery
is literally a few steps from the front door.
Taxis are easily flagged from in front of the
building or on a major thoroughfare only half
a block away.
The building is a substantial stone edifice
that is both charming and in excellent condition.
There is access to the upper floors by an elevator
or by the stairwell that surrounds it. Though
the apartment is officially on the "third"
floor, it is actually five floors above the
street - providing distance from any street
noise. The apartment itself is quite spacious,
with 15 foot ceilings through the entry, entertainment
and dining areas. There are large windows throughout
the apartment. The extensive woodwork, hardwood
floors, ceiling treatments, and fine furnishings
give the apartment an ambience that is both
warm and elegant. With multiple living areas,
we found it easy to have several activities
going simultaneously - Scrabble, Foosball, television,
reading, conversation. Similary, because the
bedrooms are well away from the living areas,
our different generations could maintain independent
sleep schedules without disturbing each other.
The multiple bathrooms also allowed our large
group to bathe and dress with easy efficiency.
The kitchen is fully equiped with gas stove
and oven, microwave, large pantry, cooking utensils,
and ample pottery/glassware. A full-size refrigerator/freezer
is just outside the kitchen in a serving area.
Unlimited bottled water was available from a
free-standing cooler next to the refrigerator.
We hired a chef to prepare most of our evening
meals, and comfortably seated 14 at the dining
room table. The washer and dryer in the utility
room appeared to be new, and we found their
presence to be quite helpful in our extended
stay. We also appreciated the innumerable "fully-equipped"
details that made Casa Serra a low hassle experience
- from corkscrews, bread box, to iron, to the
rolling shopping bag. Finally, you were quite
prompt and gracious in responding to any assistance
that we required during our stay.
The bottom line is that our quarters were so
comfortable that we felt little urgency to leave
them, though we knew that there was much about
Barcelona that we had not yet explored. Thanks
for making Casa Serra available to us. We look
forward to another visit in the future.
