About the Homestay
I love the idea of someone else enjoying this awesome apartment! I host a lot of small gatherings and relish the idea of someone else enjoying the same.
The location of the flat is very centric, it will not cost you too much money on public transport because everything is nearby. You can get quickly to the promenade areas like "Las Ramblas" and the famous neighborhoods "Born" and "Gotico". For the fans of skateboarding, I live at 2 min walking from MACBA where the best europeans skate-boarders used to train. For the shopping people ( like me :) ), you'll be spoiled of choice in the area. For night birds, you are in the heart of Barcelona by Night. For the families, I live in a quiet street and my neighbors are nice and quiet people. Also, there are many areas dedicated to children around at less than 2 min walking.
About me, my favorite things in the world include cats, acts of kindness, meeting new people, modern art, learning new languages, intimate conversations with friends, the unconditional love of family, a good debate and delicious food (yummy)! Oh and also any opportunity to build community. During the day, I work and in the evenings, I sometimes teach some French courses and play fencing as a sport. During the weekends, I soak up as much sun, fun and life as possible! I hope to host folks who love to live, learn and grow! It would be a great sadness to me if you disliked your stay in any way!
To finish, I provide also towels, the material for the beach (sun umbrella and snorkeling material) and mineral water to my guests. And for the coolest guests, I will make you a great Moroccan tea :-D during your staying. So speak to you soon.
I registered in Homestay as a host since september 2014 and I know most of you would prefer to see some reviews before to book (normal I do the same :) ). As a new starter, I need time as this is super fresh so please do not hesitate to reach me if you have any doubts. For the 1st adventurers of september 2014, I have a surprise for you. Speak to you soon.

We had a really good time in Fatimas house. :-) She is so friendly, helpful and such a nice person. She checked internet with all our questions about Barcelona and helped us very much. The flat is very clean. The cat is so sweet. Bedroom is very small, but it has a window. We had a really good time and it was like visiting an old friend! :-) Thank you, Fatima!
