About Eric Mills

Born and raised in San Francisco, I have been living in Barcelona for the last 15 years, where I work as a writer for a small jazz record label. My wife Floriana is an architect from Italy. We have a four-year old daughter Luna who is our pride and joy. Despite coming from different places, Barcelona has really become home for us.

Eric Mills purchased this Apartment in 2013

Why Eric Mills chose Fort Pienc

I've only owned this apartment for a short time. I knew that I wanted to get a place near the Arco de Triunfo, as I've fallen in love with the openness of the street Paseo San Juan and its proximity to so many of my favorite places. I had been searching in this area until I finally found this fabulous apartment!

What makes this Apartment unique

The flat is both modern and minimalist, yet warm and cozy. The huge terrace, tastefully designed rooms and high beautiful ceilings all combine to make this an extremely delightful and relaxing place for a romantic or family-oriented get away.

                                                      We had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The flat is clean, large and in a wonderful location. We enjoyed our time and would stay here again.

                                                      Thanks for all your hospitality.

                                                      Lovely rental and location. Plenty of plants, sunlight on back patio. We really enjoyed Barcelona!

                                                      Justin G.

                                                      Thanks for hospitality! Overall a pleasant stay. Some construction on neighboring building but good experience overall.

                                                      Great location

                                                      Eileen W.Asheville, NC

                                                      We arrived and were greeted by Cinzia. She was very friendly and provided us with lots of info about rental and Barcelona. The apartment was very nice except for the shower. It needs a bit of work. The bed was very comfortable and the location was perfect for walking, eating and shopping. I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

                                                      The apartment is very large and airy with bonus of an outdoor garden. However it needs a little TLC

                                                      Gary D.

                                                      We were greeted by Eric's friend Cinzia in a lovely friendly manner and she has explained the basics of apartment and area although a printed explanation along with phone numbers of doctor emergency etc would be good. We had a few teething problems which to Eric's credit he offered to have rectified although due to circumstances were not done while we were there. The lighting and bathrooms could be improved along with the addition of a rug and occasional tables in living area would make it better. We are also , having stayed in a number of VRBO properties, having basics such as milk coffee supplied but that is a small thing. The area was good with easy transport and very safe and a short walk to Born area where you could find plenty of good bars restaurants and shops.

                                                      Fun time in Barcelona

                                                      Melody B.Chandler, AZ

                                                      We enjoyed our stay at this VRBO. Fortunately we had good weather so we were able to take advantage of the small outdoor eating area which is where we enjoyed our wine each night. The kitchen was great and we cooked two out of the four nights that we stayed. The living and dining area was a bit dark but very spacious. The bedrooms were fine but the small bathroom had mold in the shower. We had an issue with the hot water so we contacted Eric and he took care of the problem immediately. We appreciated his prompt response. The location worked out well for us. It was a short distance to the Metro, grocery store and fun restaurants. Eric had a list of suggested restaurants and activities for Barcelona and we chose the Red Ant, an Asian eatery which we all enjoyed. It was a fun time in this beautiful and vibrant city.

                                                      Experience Barcelona from a modern, clean, and convenient flat!

                                                      Seth P.

                                                      We stayed in Eric's flat located in the eixample neighborhood which was super convenient to returants, shopping, the subway, and sites like the Arc de Triomf and Las Ramblas to name a few. Eric was super accommodating and walked us through the flat explaining the features and telling us a bit about the neighborhood and recomending some of the establishments nearby. We felt extremely comfortable and safe staying in his flat and would book this property again in the future. Thanks for an amazing place to stay while we experienced Barcelona.

                                                      This apartment is located only 3 blocks away from the Arco de Triunfo and Barcelona's beautiful Ciutadella Park (with the zoo) and only a 10-minute walk to the charming Born neighborhood in the Gothic quarter, and the very center of the city at Plaza de Cataluña and Las Ramblas. It is also close to two different metro stops, Barcelona's primary bus station and walking distance from the Sagrada Familia and Hospital San Pau, as well as Gaudi's lovely buildings on Paseo de Gracia: La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló. In addition, there are numerous outstanding restaurants within a short walking distance (I will provide you with a list). Quiet yet centrally located, the area is perfect for a relaxing and exciting get-away!
