Overview

L'Antiga Esquerra de l'Eixample Condo Rental Photos and Description

Penthouse flat, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 1 sitting room, 1 terrace (Sleeps 2)

This quiet and cosy flat is located on the penthouse floor of a 19th century classic building with a concierge.

The flat has a small fully equipped kitchen with a two ring hob, fridge, washing machine and cutlery, pots and pans. There is a bedroom, a sitting room and has a beautiful planted terrace with deck chairs. Also there is cable t-v and free internet via WIFI.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí.

You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for.

It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona. Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.

The Eixample is one of the prettiest and safest districts of Barcelona. Places of interest not to miss: Plaza Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia with those beautiful Antonio Gaudi’s buildings such as La Pedrera and La Casa Battló and Plaza España that has a fountain display with lights and music in the evening time.

About Philippe Bareilles

Hello, I am born in 1954, I speak english, spanish and french. I was before in the movie business and studied production at NYU in 1980-1983, and since 2005 I dedicate myself to tourism. It is much quieter!

Philippe Bareilles purchased this condo in 2012

lovely apartment, GREAT LOCATION

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Phillippe's other apartment and wanted to try this one, too. It was very nicely furnished, but it is located by the light well shared with neighbors. On occasion there were very loud neighbors that woke us up/kept us awake (nothing Phillippe can do about this, I imagine). Also, the terrace furniture was too large for the space (2 chaises and a large table); it would be better just to have a cafe table and chairs so that it could be used better. The bathroom sink was very high; I am 5'10" and had to stand on my tippy toes to use it! The shower is great. On the whole, I would recommend his other apartment over this one--much quieter. But, the location cannot be beaten--close to everything for those who enjoy walking (and eating well). It is only one block from Passeig de Gracia where Gaudi's masterpieces are located. Note that while there is an elevator, you have to walk up the final floor (4 landings). Phillippe is very kind and accommodating, allowing us to drop off our luggage before check-in times.

Great stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We spent five nights this month in Philippe's apartment. The flat is very spacious and beautifully decorated. There is a very pleasant terrace, with good views. Despite its location on one of the city's main thoroughfares, the apartment was very quiet. It's location allowed us to walk to many tourist sites, and there are several nearby metro lines for more distant trips. Philippe was a very welcoming host. We would certainly book this apartment for any future visits to Barcelona.

Lovely stay in Barcelona for our honeymoon

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this apartment in Barcelona! We stayed for three days over our week long trip to Spain. We loved the terrace, indoor space and especially the washing machine since a lot of our clothes were dirty by that time. It is in a prime location with restaurants, shopping, coffee shops, etc. right on the block. A great deal for such a prime location!

Great Barcelona Location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 5 nights in the heart of Barcelona. Great restaurants nearby and easy to walk to the Gothic Quarters. The apartment is quiet and the deck is a great place to relax and enjoy the view of the city.

A great way to inhabit vs visit Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I loved having Philippe's apartment for my weekend stay in Barcelona. It's ideally located, the older building's character was lovely to experience (great elevator!). It's a very quaint and comfortable unit and I especially appreciated the terrace and having the fresh air flow through the place with many windows. Philippe is a gracious host, welcomed me at the door as scheduled and everything was effortless to stay there. I will definitely use this accommodation again when I come back to Barcelona!
