For me, managing the Barracart Apartments means much more than mere professional activity; it is actually part of a dream. My name is Olga and one day I fantasized about the idea of running a small business by the sea.
It´s said, be careful with what you dream because one day those dreams can be fulfilled and that has been my case.
I am Hungarian but I have lived in Valencia for more than 15 years. I consider myself passionate about this city, especially the Cabanyal – Canyamelar neighborhood where our Barracart Apartments are located.
I love the spirit of this old fishing district that still has reminiscences of a time when the neighbors called each other by name and took their chairs out to the street to chat in the fresh air.
I am fascinated by the Mediterranean, not only for its warm waters where you can swim almost all year round, but also for the lifestyle it inspires. A casual lifestyle where the terraces are the queens of the street and invite you to socialize in front of a tapa, a beer or a wine.
Neighbors of Cabanyal – Canyamelar are very welcoming and will receive you with open arms because tourism is one of the reasons why the neighborhood is living its second youth. Not in vain it´s been given us the nickname of “Notting Hill Valencian” and we´ve been point as one of the top 10 neighborhoods in Europe.
All this that I explain to you, together with my personal connection with Valencia, encouraged us to found Barracart, our tourist apartments that, however, pretend to be much more.
Because I would love to be your ambassador for Barracart, as well as for Cabanyal and “los Poblados Marítimos”. I will do everything possible to make you feel at home and at the same time integrate into the neighborhood. For that I will keep you informed about the best cultural, gastronomic and leisure proposals in Cabanyal and Valencia.
In the decoration of the rooms we have also taken great care and furnished them with local details that will make you better understand what Valenciais like: crafts, canvases, antiques … We have made a selection of elements of daily life from the early 20th century in which the house – that today accommodates the Barracart Apartments– was built. Popular modernism is part of the idiosyncrasy of this neighborhood and our apartments. I warn you that you will be surprised when you realize that you are in a modernist but totally modern house!
If you are looking for a city-break or a genuine vacation where the sea, gastronomy and cultural immersion are the protagonists, El Cabanyal – Canyamelar is your neighborhood and Barracart is your accommodation in Valencia.
I invite you to enter our website and follow us on SN so that you can familiarize yourself with your apartment and the neighborhood.
I am convinced that Valencia, el Cabanyal and the Poblados Marítimos (Maritime Villages) will make you fall in love as one day they did with me.
I look forward to see you in Valencia!
Manager Barracart Apartments
