Overview

About the property

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 1995

Why Philippe Bareilles chose Eixample

It is the best location in Barcelona and Barcelona is one of the best place in the world. Sea, mountains and countryside within few minutes drive.

What makes this condo unique

This penthouse is right in the center heart of the city and it is very calm and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Phiilppe -

Wayne and I enjoyed your beautiful apartment, the perfect entrance to our trip through Spain. . . . It is so well appointed. Everything that I could have wanted was right at hand. Not once did I wish I had something. I spent one morning in your bright and sunny reading room just making plans for the day. What a wonderful experience, walking from the street through massive wooden doors and soaring ceilings and polished marble floors. Thank goodness for the lift! The penthouse outdoor living area was the perfect place to check the weather, read my book or just relax.

The location was superb. The street has a median filled with restaurants with outdoor seating. One restaurant we couldn't resist on several occasions. Great food. A little coffee shop across the street for a quick bite or coffee on the run. A bakery. A bookstore. A straight shot in one direction to the bustle of a city with great shopping and the tourist buses that give sunshine and earphones to guide us through Barcelona. So many defining historical points are waiting to disclose their secrets. The other direction? More restaurants and shops . . . linens and perfumeries. Oh, and a bookstore. close by.

The next time I come back to Barcelona - and I will be back - I will be in touch to stay in this space.

Dear Phiilppe -

Wayne and I enjoyed your beautiful apartment, the perfect entrance to our trip through Spain. . . It is so well appointed. Everything that I could have wanted was right at hand. . . including umbrellas just in case! Not once did I wish I had something. I spent one morning in your bright and sunny reading room just making plans for the day. What a wonderful experience, walking from the street through massive wooden doors and soaring ceilings and polished marble floors. Thank goodness for the lift! The penthouse outdoor living area was the perfect place to check the weather, read my book or just relax.

The location was superb. The street has a median filled with restaurants with outdoor seating. One restaurant we couldn't resist on several occasions. Great food. A little coffee shop across the street for a quick bite or coffee on the run. A bakery. A straight shot in one direction to the bustle of a city with great shopping and the tourist buses that give sunshine and earphones to guide us through Barcelona.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything about this property was perfect! The owner, Philippe was very responsive. The apartment had everything you could possible need provided. Philippe even left a couple of local beers and bottles of water in the refrigerator for us. The property felt very safe and secure. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom was clean and modern. The terrace was the best part, the perfect way to start or end your day. The location at the north end of La Rambla was great, very walkable. Would recommend this to anyone going to Barcelona.

Great location, comfortable room, owner very responsive

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this property. The owner, Philippe, was very easy to work with. We arrived late due to missing a connection and he was very responsive via the homeaway app. The bed is very comfortable and there is satellite TV available in several languages. The terrace is great for lounging during the day. Our favorite tapas restaurant which is very close was called Vinitus. We also had very good paella at Bosque Palermo. I highly recommend getting a pass to the hop on hop off bus tours as it will provide transportation and take you to the major sites. There is an easily accessible stop nearby at Casa Batllo. Overall we had a wonderful time in Barcelona and will certainly stay here again when we return!

Great place in BCN

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Phillipe's place on Rambla Catalunya. The location was close to Placa Catalunya for the Aerobús & Passeig de Gracia metro line. We were very close the Gaudi sights and enjoyed a free walking tour of both Gaudi & Barri Gotic. The apartment had a lovely terrace that we enjoyed relaxing on after a long day of sightseeing. We also used the washing machine and the apartment had washing pods provided. This was my wife's favorite place we stayed at...that's high praise.

The apartment is central and very quiet location. Philippe stayed in contact with me from the start. It was very easy to get the key and the apartment is lovely clean and has everything you might need. Thank you Philippe for all the helpful travel tips getting from airport to apartment. We enjoyed our stay.
