Parquet floor and half timbered original catalan roof.
It is situated at the last floor(3 floor, sorry no lift, be fit to climb the stairs!) of a small and quiet building with few neighbors, it is very sunny and lightened all day long. Even if there is no lift and you have to climb 3 floors of narrow stairs we thought that the effort is highly rewarded. The apartment is quiet, sunny, spatious and full of caracter. It's an old small building with only 5 apartments and with wooden catalan typical ceiling inside that makes it unique according to us !We rent the entire flat, it is not shared. You will find that you have plenty of space to relax and access to all the comforts of a modern home. You are invited to cook, enjoy a sumptuous breakfast on the veranda or relax on the comfortable couch.
It is situated in Poble Sec neighborhood, that stretches from Plaza España to the port, nestled between Avenida Parallel and the enormous park areas on Montjuic, one of the city's most beautiful and interesting hill. The 'Poble Sec' has managed to maintain its charm and authenticity better than other Barcelona's neighborhoods and it is full of bar and lively restaurants. In fact, the Poble Sec is where you can find one of the best traditional tapas bar of Barcelona, Quimet Quimet (Poeta Cabanyes, 25 - very, very close to the apartment). Only at 20 meters you will find Carrer Blai: the main pedestrian street of the neighborhood, along with the charming Plaza Sortidor there are the ideal places where to enjoy a cocktail, a coffee or some delicious food in one of the many open air terraces.
The Poble Sec offers a wide range of cultural activities and features several popular theaters. It lies at the foot of Montjuic Park where you can find some sports facilities (including the Olympic Stadium), a Botanical Garden, the Joan Miró Foundation and the National Art Museum of Catalonia (MNAC). The view of the city you can enjoy from Montjuic is really impressive and you can decide to walk up to the top if you feel fit or take the funicular from the Parallel metro station. The Ramblas, Raval and Gothic Quarter are a short 10 minutes walking distance away and is very easy to get there: just cross Avenida Parallel and wander through the multicultural and lively Raval neighbourhood until you reach Las Ramblas or Plaza Catalunya. The Poble Sec is also connected to other parts of the city and important tourist attractions by metro (lines L2 and L3 as well as several bus lines that are only 150 meters away from our apartment).

Hi we are Bruno and Luca, Italians living in Barcelona for the last 12 years. We have purchased this house in 2005 and decorated and furnished for ourselves reflecting our own preferences. We hope that you will enjoy this personal corner as much as we did over the years

Why Bruno chose Poble Sec
Even if there is no lift and you have to climb 3 floors of narrow stairs we thought that the effort was highly rewarded. The apartment is quiet, sunny, spatious and full of caracter.

What makes this apartment unique
We fell in love with this apartment when we sat on the veranda on the back of the house. Sun is entering through the veranda all the way inside the hallway and change the colors of the house. There is plenty of space and even if it is very close to the center and in a lively neighborhood during the nights it's very quite and you can sleep fantastically.
