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.

Lovely, quiet, cool breeze terrace

  • 4 of 5

Hidden gem near Placa de Catalunya. Small, but with plenty of storage space and updated bathroom, quiet nights, and good AC. Close to plenty of pastry and tapas cafes. Convenient to Gaudi buildings, Casa Mila and Casa Batillo, and Bus Touristic city tours.

Location! Comforts! Conveniences! Everything you could want!

  • 5 of 5

Located in a lovely area with easy access to everywhere you will want to visit in Barcelona. The apartment is lovely and comfortable, with a private terrace that makes it stand out from other properties. Philippe or his assistant are always available for whatever you may need.

I would highly recommend this property and would definitely go back.

Great time, great place, great host

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in Barcelona. Philippe replied to all of our emails immediately, communication was great. We were met by a colleague who explained everything that we needed to know . The location was perfect, not quite in the middle of things but close enough to get to anything. The apt was clean and comfortable and was supplied with most anything you might need. The AC kept up with the temperatures outside. Coffee on the terrace in the morning was a nice treat. Thank you Philippe for your hospitality.

The location was great, the price was great and the owner was most helpful. The unit was as described and very clean and modern. When I return to Barcelona I will try to obtain the unit again. The entire stay was outstanding!
