Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in La Ribera El Borne - 2 attics, 2 terraces, 2 spots

Dreamy terraces, Unbeatable locations. Views. Sun. Quiet. 2 options same plesure

I own 2 different attics penthose with beautiful terraces in center town of Barcelona, around Santa Caterina marquet.

The smallest one I call it 'THE GREEN PENTHOUSE BORN', as It is ecologic, and full of flowers and plants all over my loved terrace. It's located in Born area.

This is a charming attic apartment with a stunning 40m2 terrace with view all over Barcelona 360º panoramic. Located on the 5th floor WITHOUT elevator but a cozy stair. It sleeps up to 4 people(1 double bedroom queen size mattress and 1 double-sofa bed). All the apartment has a lot of natural light.

The terrace is private (40m2), just for my host tu be used. Located over the apartment, not in front. I love plants and flowers. I love to keep my terrace as my little green and blue paradise, where to enjoy nice breakfasts or lovely dinners under stars. You will not believe how quiet it is at night... making you feel as you where in some little town of the countryside. There are a big table and 4 chairs of wood with the ecological certificate FSC. The terrace is also equipped with a deckchair, hammock and a little barbecue.

The apartment has a fully-equipped kitchen featuring cooker with microwave, fridge-freezer, toaster, coffee-machine and washing machine. The apartment has a cosy living room with TV, CD/Radio and a bathroom.

There is ADSL internet fast wifi conection, only for my guests to be used. Not sharing it with any one else. So perfect running. There is also an old computer with webcam and international tv chanels, enough to check mails. There is air-conditioning and electric heater.

The apartment is equipped with Bed linen and covers.Towels. And all needed to be enjoyed fully.

The Green Penthouse BORN commitment: All energy used in my apartment is 100 % clean sorces.

No nueclear.

No gas.

No coal.

No fuel.

Walking distance of all major attractions in the city (8 minutes to La Catedral, 15 minutes to the beach), and surranded by nice bars, cafés, restaurants, bakeries and all trendy shops you will need.

The other attic of mine, the biggest one, with 2 bedrooms and lif, I call it: 'THE MUSIC PALACE PENTHOUSE', as it is close to the 'El Palau de la musica' , a modernist theater where play great music.

The apartment has a perfect distribution that take profit of each corner to make it bright and spacious. With each of the two rooms separated by the wide open space where we find dining, living room and kitchenette. Giving each room its own privacy. All double beds.

And every room, every wall, every corner windows to enjoy the large terrace surrounding the apartment. Bright spaces with views of sun, sky and rooftops.

In the living room, a sofa bed can accommodate up to 6 people.

The apartment has a fully equipped kitchen with everything you need for cooking: oven, microwave, dishwasher, etc ...

Thanks to be at the very top of the building and is surrounded by a large terrace, the apartment is quiet and peaceful, no noise from the street or traffic. Take time to enjoy there a nice dinner or a sunny breakfast. :-)

Area: BORN-Santa Caterina.

On the opposite side of Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, separated by Via Laietana, is the barrio of Born. Although it’s similar in many ways to its Gothic neighbour, it doesn’t draw the same number of tourists. Since the 1980s it has provided a focal point for the city´s artistic scene and now boasts some of the highest property prices in the city – like many other parts of Barcelona it has moved on substantially from its down-at-heel roots to attain such desirability. Attractions in this area streets are everywhere – the opulent Modernisme of the Palau de la Música, the post-modern Mercat de Santa Caterina, and the Gothic splendour of the basilica Santa Maria del Mar – are all within 10 minutes’ walk of each other. The area is also home to the acclaimed Picasso museum. Another advantage is being located right next to Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can get a break from the narrow streets of the old town. Born is right in the centre of Barcelona and as a result it provides a well-placed and characterful base from which to explore the rest of the city.

What makes this apartment unique

No doubt, the best things of my 2 apartments are the unbeatable location and their terraces. It is really something. It gives you happyness when you are there.

Choosing the 'GREEN PENTHOUSE BORN' you will enjoy a 360ª panoramic view of Barcelona center and even farther. From there you can see the amazing Sagrada Familia, the Gotic cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar church, Tibidabo montain, Montjuic montain, Twin Towers, Agbar building, etc... THE WHOLE CITY.

In both apartments, it's a great plus enjoying the sun during the day or the stars over your head at dinner time . To have breakfast there is the best way to start knowing the city. At the end of the day, there is no better place to rest!! I love to keep it as nice as possible because it really give me happyness. You will not believe how quiet are both terraces at night... making you feel as you where in some little town of the countryside.

Choosing 'THE TRAFALGAR PENTHOUSE' you wiil be abble to see how is a tipical 'patio' of a Eixample cuarter. And you will enjoy a lift. jeje

Even better than what the pictures show you!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment was a pleasant surprise and alot bigger than we had all imagined. As four adults (girls) there was plenty of space. Very clean apartment and very nice bathroom (powerful hot showers). The washing machine was a bonus (even washing powder was supplied which was a pleasant discovery).
The terrace was a huge bonus. Very big and great to sit and relax.
Great location! Did not feel far from anywhere. A supermarket just around the corner, with all the essentials. The metro just around the corner. Great position to walk and explore with great tapas restaurants very close by (and Burger King).
If you are young..or even not so young, and plan to go clubbing - buses to clubs are walking distance from the apartment. Cheap and easy.
It was great to be provided with so many recommendations of places to see, eat and how to travel around Barcelona, given by the friendly owners.
Highly recommended. Enjoy your stay!

Excellent Location, Great Space

  • 4 out of 5
This was the perfect space for me, my sister, and my 16-year old son. The apartment was comfortable and clean and couldn't have been in a better location for us...just a quick walk to the Palau de la Musica. It's also close to a subway stop (Bruc) and has easy access to an ATM and a grocery store. Perfect for travellers, but it made us feel like we were part of the city.

The manager, Victor, couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. He was very responsive to all our needs and we will surely seek out one of his properties again when (not if!) we return to Barcelona.

Perfekt beliggenhed og dejlig terrasse 3½ *

  • 4 out of 5
Perfekt beliggenhed, man kan gå til alt - en dejlig terrasse - lejligheden var ok ren - der er ikke klima anlæg i det ene soveværelse - der mangler udstyr i køkkenet hvis man ønsker at lave mad selv (brødknive, spækbræt fade o.l) - selve lejligheden er gammel - men den får 4 stjerner grundet den dejlige terrasse og den perfekte beliggenhed - 3½ stjerne burde være den rigtige karakter
Udlejer er meget venlige og hjælpsomme.

Perfect location and great terrace!

  • 5 out of 5
The apartment is really clean and comfortable, in a great location, walking distance from the airport bus and on the edge of the Born area. It feels like a very safe area too. We visited with a 12 month old baby and a cot and high chair were provided.
Victor's terrace is definitely one of the best places we had our morning coffee. Try not to be in hurry and spend at least one lazy morning on the roof having long breakfast and admire the views.
Victor and his colleague Marcela were really helpful and responsive at all times by phone/text/email. Don't missed Victor's tips we enjoyed very much our time in Xacolin and El Mundial Bars.
It's a small point but in the photo there is a mini-stereo with speakers. We'd assumed we could therefore plug in an ipod and play music but in fact there is now a computer linked to the TV so that wasn't possible!

Car: not necessary

Area: Santa Caterina-BORN- Urquinaona subway

The Born area is opposite the Gothic, separated by the Via Laietana, and next to the Barceloneta, a short walk from the main beaches of the city.

Since the 80s the Born has become one of the most artistic and flamboyant city, becoming arguably the most fashionable area of Old Town. The monuments of this district are innumerable - opulent modernism Palau de la Música, the Mercat de Santa Caterina contemporary and gothic splendor of the church of Santa Maria del Mar - and are all within a few minutes walk. Another key attraction of the area is the Picasso Museum exalted. A great advantage is to be located next to the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can relax so much historic center alleyway. El Born is right in the center of Barcelona and therefore will provide a basis expressive and well placed for exploring the rest of the city.

And among all these places of interest, one will enjoy the narrow streets lost iran will discover lovely shops, squares with terraces, or any corner where you get a great picture. And of course the huge gastronomic offer and bars, where to dine or enjoy a delicious Mojito.

The Born adjoins the Barceloneta old fishermen district and today posedora of the best beaches in the city. A lovely 25-minute walk from my house, across the harbor and this particular neighborhood, will take you to the beach of Barceloneta. Where you can swim from April until almost November. Thanks to the warm climate of our city.
