Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday apartment in Forum Diagonal Mar
3/4 bedrooms - 2 full bathrooms - sleeps up to 7 adults
We are very proud our unique home (in Barcelona). A dramatic setting - the 18th floor of a slim tower- Illa de Llac (only 4 apartments per floor), set within 17 ha parkland designed by world famous architect, Enric Miralles, overlooking - from the 30m terrace - a lake, beaches, the entire city including Sagrada Familia. It is a small chic community (Concierge & 24hr security), beside the best shopping complex in Barcelona, close to scores of restaurants, tapas bars, museums and miles of great beaches - just 10 minutes from Las Ramblas, Port Olympic or 25 minutes from the airport.
Staying in this special setting offers visitors an exceptional opportunity to enjoy and share in an exclusive enclave, whilst respecting that your/our neighbours are at home. If you seek the finer points of a unique holiday in Barcelona, then you will love this experience.
However if you seek an action packed location or party setting, you will be disappointed and so will our friends and neighbours.

27. Just a quick e-mail to let you know how much we enjoyed our recent stay in your amazing apartment. We had a wonderful time exploring Barcelona and found the location ideal for our needs allowing us to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city but still be only a short metro ride away. If anything the apartment was too nice making it difficult at times to motivate ourselves enough to get out and explore. I initially thought 10 days would be too long in Barcelona but the time flew by and I could easily have spent a lot longer enjoying the sights and sounds of the city. Once again many thanks for allowing us to stay in your home and I am sure we will return again at a future date. CW Family, London UK Sept 2010

62. “The location and layout of this lovely apartment was perfect for my “Bearcelona” adventure. My human travelling companions especially appreciated the privacy of the two separate sleeping wings, each with its own bath and climate control.
The apartment’s location in the modern Diagonal Mar area offered easy access to the metro system. Hop on a metro train, and it is just a quick ride to the city centre. The nearby shopping area, with its many restaurants, included a large supermarket - very convenient.
But my favourite aspect was the view from this 18th floor unit. The sweeping vista from the mountains to the sea was a treat for the eye, offering an expansive panorama of the city - impressive by day, sparkling by night. I was even able to catch a glimpse of the iconic La Sagrada Familia cathedral from the private balcony. Just beautiful!” – Travel Writer USA Oct ‘07
