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 Eixample

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.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was heaven in Barcelona! Our family of 4 stayed here for two weeks and had the best time. The terrace was key! It's clean, modern design was simple yet comfortable. The location of the flat is perfect for walking and hiking all over Barcelona. The owner and manager of the property are very helpful with tips on where to go and what to see as well. Highly highly recommended!

We visited the apartment for a long citytrip weekend. Lovely 2 bedroom apartment on a great spot on walking distance from all must-sees of Barcelona. Also the manager Cinzia was of great help with good suggestions for dining and brunches.

Wonderful apartment in a fantastic location.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here for five nights with my wife and 3 year old son, we loved it. Very nice, modern apartment with plenty of space and a lovely outside terrace. The amenities were fantastic, nice cool air con, big fridge with chilled water and ice dispenser (both vital when returning from a day in the sun), fast wifi, washer and dryer, all the comforts of home pretty much! Located 5 minutes from 2 metro stations and within easy walking distance of the Arc de Triomf, the zoo, the Born area and many other attractions, but far enough away from the main tourist areas that it's quiet and the local restaurants and bars are very reasonable too! Eric and the apartment manager Cinzia were both very helpful and nice with lots of advice on where to go in Barca. We're definitely planning a return trip.

Location and Eric were Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I spent 10 days in Barcelona. The apartment had the best location possible. We could walk everywhere. We loved the proximity to cafes, groceries, and all of the sites! We booked a few day trips and we could walk to the pick up locations in 10 minutes. Eric was wonderful. From the beginning in sending us restaurant and other ideas for our stay to personally booking our taxi rides. He was very responsive and we had a great time. I loved the outdoor space in the back and having 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms was a plus. The kitchen was great and having a washer and dryer was a must. Everything was perfect! Safe and friendly building. Would stay here again!

Oasis in the Middle of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

My son (11), wife and I had a wonderful stay at Eric's place. The property is in walking distance of many attractions or just a short taxi ride away. At the same time it is in a safe, residential neighborhood which is always nicer than staying in the overcrowded tourist areas. After a long day of sightseeing we were able to relax, catch some rays and even barbecue (charcoal) outside in the private courtyard. The apartment is well-appointed with supplies, clean and maintained. Eric is also easy to get in touch with and was quick to answer our question about where to dispose of garbage and recyclables (just outside the front door and to the right in the large containers). Would definitely stay here again and also recommend the apartment to family and friends.

Tips:

1) Best Tapes by far: Tapeo (make a reservation on thefork or you may not get in).

2) Take the Viator tour of Sagrada Familia and request Dave Flores from Amigo Tours.

3) If you go tot the supermarket there is one of those wheeled grocery carriers in the shed with the washer/dryer.

4) Best place to rent bike: Happy Rental Bike. It's family run and one of the only place that opens at 9am instead of 10am.

5) Barcelona utilizes Hailo taxi app.

6) Gym offering reasonable day pass: Duet Fit.

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!
