But being an Airbnb host isn’t all fun and games – in fact, there is a huge amount of work involved in running a successful short-let. Step forward the numerous property management companies that are ready and waiting to take all the work off your hands, leaving you free to reap the rewards. We’ve picked out three of the best that are Barcelona-based below.
