Barcelona in September best location for us ?

Hi I am interested in views about which location to stay in, My husband and I will be travelling with our daughter and her boyfriend and our son all in their 20's. We are looking for an apartment/villa /house with a pool and easy access to visit beaches and Barcelona centre. we want to do sightseeing and relaxing - not into clubs or night life.

I am interested in whether it would be good for us to try and get somewhere in the city or outside of the city - north or south ? I have had a brief look and prices in the city look higher than outside of the city.

What is public transport like ?

Hola youdontknowme!

I don't know you but your detailed description of what you want certainly helped me formulate a clear idea to suggest to you. It's true that prices of apt in the central core are higher than further out; that's a real estate principle that is in effect everywhere. The area of Villa Olímpica has more modern apts with shared pools and is relatively easy to access by metro from sightseeing spots. A Toronto friend traveling with her husband 2 adult children stayed around here last summer.

Here's a link to a Friendly Rentals apt to show you what I mean. I don't work for them but I like to use their website becuz they have a lot of listings and you can read the positive reviews of each apt clearly. Input your actual dates and other info and do a search for yourself.
