Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in El Camp de l'Arpa del Clot

Spacious Apartment, 2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom, Big Living And Dining Room

This spacious apartment (90 square meters), carefully and warmly decorated has all the necessary amenities to make easy both a short stay as a longer.

It's a flat with two double rooms, two large bathrooms (one with a very comfortable shower, the other with bathtub). It's wide kitchen is fully equipped (dishwasher, oven, microwave, a gas stove with 5 burners, and big fridge with freezer).

The 30 sq.m dining and living room offers you all the comfort you can wait after a day walking round the city. It's kitchen, opened to the dining room, makes easy to have breakfast or supper at the apartment.

All the apartment is painted in warm colors (the painter was an artist painter, there is a painting made by him hung on one of the walls). All the walls are plenty of contemporary paintings, all original, made by some friends of us.

The location couldn't be better, just between Sagrada Familia (10 minutes walking) and San Pablo Hospital (just in the corner), two of the masterpieces of Modernism.

About Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué

I'm from Barcelona, I was born here and I live here. I love my city, its cultural offer, its gastronomic offer, the cinemas, the theaters, the restaurants, the tapas bar... I enjoy walking kilometers with my dog and discovering new cute shops, good restaurants, interesting groceries. Then, I can offer this information to my guests.

Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué purchased this apartment in 1995

Why Mar Mellado / Xavier Vegué chose El Camp de l'Arpa del Clot

This used to be our home, me and my family lived here for years.

We moved few time ago and we want to share our place with foreign people who want to visit Barcelona, enjoy it and benefit of the hug offer it has. It's a nice place, warmly painted and with all our original paintings and art pieces, which provides a very cool and warm atmosphere.

What makes this apartment unique

The apartment is located between Sagrada Familia and Sant Pau Hospital. Both of them are Modernism masterpieces. The metro is at only one block and directs you to the center in few minutes, but the best option is walk the Eixample streets where every corner hides a surprise. The Av. Gaudí, the street that runs from Sant Pau Hospital to Sagrada Familia, is a very nice pedestrian promenade plenty of good restaurants and stores.

Great stay in Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

We booked Mar & Xavier's apt for 10 days. Wonderful & welcoming accommodations. Excellent location to walk to Sagrada Familia area or take the subway all over the City. Spacious interior; grateful for the elevator after climbing stairs all day in the City; wonderful lighting in the space; great beds for sleeping; laundry supplies provided so one doesn't have to shop; well-equipped kitchen; TV offers generous selection of stations with DVD's for kids; basket filled with tour information (maps, brochures, etc); binder with clear directions on how to operate washer/dryer--yes there is a dryer!-- building is totally secure--no worries there. Easy trash disposal. Wonderful hosts who responded promptly to any inquiry we had during our stay. When we return to Barcelona, we will be staying here again. Thanks Mar & Xavier for listing your property on VRBO.

Excelente alojamiento!!

  • 5 of 5

Paramos en el departamento cuatro días. Es altamente recomendable por su ubicación, limpieza, comodidad y, fundamentalmente, por la calidez de sus propietarios quienes estuvieron atentos a nuestras necesidades y opciones. A pesar del frío extremo que nos tocó esos días los ambientes se mantuvieron templados. Muy recomendable para viajar con hijos adolescentes. Muy confortable. Gracias.

Loved Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the apartment for one week between Christmas and new year. We are two adults and two teenagers and found the apartment clean, comfortable and well equipped. Mar and Xavier were excellent hosts, and provided lots of detailed information for enjoying the city. We found barcelona clean, friendly and easy to get around. Would definitely recommend this apartment, only 2 subway stops from downtown, but removed enough that noise and crowds were not an issue. A few minutes walk from la sagrada, and tapas or coffee outside with a marvellous view of la sagrada. A day trip to Montserrat also a highlight. I would suggest an additional chair in the living room, but otherwise awesome! Thanks Mar and Xavier.

Wise Choice in Las Ramblas

  • 5 of 5

Three of us thoroughly enjoyed our one-week pre-cruise stay at Mar and Xavier's apartment in the Eixample area of Barcelona. Everything was exactly as advertised. The apartment had lots of room, the beds were comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped. The only thing that was not adequately represented was the enormous - and priceless - hospitality and kindness we received from our two hosts.

Xavier met us at the airport, took us to the apartment, and then spent time with us enthusiastically describing its amenities. He told us where to find the best shops and restaurants in the area, and pointed out the must-sees of the city. Since this was our first visit to Barcelona, we soaked up everything he said. At the end of our stay, Xavier again facilitated our transfer to the cruise dock. As a bonus, and another example of the couple's attention to detail, Mar emailed us with a reminder to move our clocks back one hour...something that we weren't aware of and, if not done, would have caused us to miss our entry slot at Gaudi's amazing Park Guell.

The highlights of our stay were our visits to the Gaudi architectural sites, the old quarters of the city, the Picasso Museum and attending the symphony at the gorgeous Gran Teatre del445397

Liceu. Even though we walked a lot, Barcelona's integrated transport system was inexpensive and efficient when we needed it. Eixample was an area where we felt safe walking around at night (couldn't really say the same about Las Ramblas!). We would go back to Barcelona in a heartbeat and we would certainly want to stay at Mar and Xavier's.

Family visit to Spain

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Spain. My family and I picked Barcelona because of it's location. One of my business associates had rented an apartment from Mar & Xavier in the past and recommended them. The apartment was very clean, the pictures are accurate. Very nice location & easy to get around Barcelona by subway. None of us speak Spanish, except for my children who study Spanish, but are at a beginner's level. Xavier met us at the apartment and sit with us for as long as he needed to answer all our questions. He had important information available at the apartment. Everything we needed was there, it was so much nicer than being in a hotel. Beautiful place, clean beautiful area. Xavier was extremely helpful, and gave perfect advise for getting around. I would defiantly stay here again and would recommend to my friends. The people in the area are also extremely nice and helpful. We got around fine, without speaking the language, people were willing to help us if we needed it and sign language works in all countries. :) One of the first places we went was to the Museu d'Historia de Catalunya. Not knowing much about this region, the museum was a great place to start, my 16 & 17 year old children loved it. Plus afterwards we walked to the Beach. We also took a day trip to Montserrat, a multi peaked mountain, it's an hour's train ride from Placa d'Espanya station. Beautiful! Very safe, clean, wonderful place! Mar & Xavier are very professional, personable, friendly host. Great Vacation!

A wonderful apartment to rest and relax while enjoying all Barcelona has to offer

  • 5 of 5

This apartment exceeded all of our expectations for our 5 day stay in Barcelona. The mangers (Mar and Xavier) were marvelous. The communication from the beginning was excellent. They arranged our transport from the airport to the apartment for a reasonable fee and we found everything there we needed. The Metro was a block away, a grocery a block away and there was detailed information on all the good places to eat nearby after our days of sightseeing and more! The bed was very comfortable (not always true when you travel) and we loved the decor. We highly recommend this apartment. Thank you Mar and Xavier for all your advise and we loved meeting both of you and will stay here again if we return to Barcelona.

Example is famous for being home to the majority of Barcelona's art nouveau masterpieces, and a high-class residential and shopping area.

The right side of the Example is the older and therefore has more of the impressive architecture.

Example is a safe and residential part of the city but there is also a vibrant nightlife and a thriving café culture. Example is a beautiful 'barrio' to wander round, take in the glorious architecture and people-watch from one of the many terrace cafes.

The right area of the Eixample was the first and is full of fabulous modernist works such as Gaudi's Casa Batllo, Casa Amatller (Puig i Cadafalch) and Lleó Morera by Domenech i Muntaner well known as the Block of Discord .....

The main example of mass creativity of Gaudi is the Sagrada Familia, still under construction and probably will remain for a long period of time ... is full of symbolism and meaning. This stunning creation never disappoints, as visitors to Barcelona are dazzled by its beauty again and again ...

Another building that also deserves mention is the Hospital de Sant Pau, which is being refurbished and recovered for the citizenship, and is probably the most complex example of modernist architecture ...

The Eixample dreta is full of museums such as the Fundació Antoni Tapies, the Egyptian Museum of Barcelona and the Fundació Francisco Goddia; You can't be disappointed with the neighborhood offer.
