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 Dreta de l'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.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in Barcelona at this apartment. The apartment has an excellent location, very quiet, and was spotlessly clean. Eric was lovely to deal with from first contact, even organising our taxi to and from the airport. We have nothing negative to say about our stay at all. Highly recommend this rental, and can't wait to go back sometime. Thanks Eric, and please pass on our thanks also to Aida who went out of her way to recommend restaurants and places to visit.

Great

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Eric, the appartment was fantastic, spotless, quiet. We also appreciated all the details like having sugar, salt, sponge, soap etc ready to use for a short stay

The location is even better than what I expected, we walked basically to everywhere

Eric was very helpful finding a taxi driver to go to the airport at 5 am! and this taxi driver is really to be recommended

We do want to come back during spring or summer to enjoy the terrace

A true home away from home in a great location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i stayed at this apartment for 6 weeks. During that time we fell in love with Barcelona and with this apartment. The location is fantastic. We walked to almost everything yet we appreciated the quiet location near the Arc de Triumf. The kitchen was well equipped, the dining room/living room was spacious and comfortable, the master bedroom was excellent (we didn't need the second smaller bedroom) and having two baths was wonderful. The washer and dryer was a great convenience as was the dishwasher. The apartment was clean and well maintained. Eric,the apartment owner, is friendly and easy to deal with and Aida, the apartment manager was both efficient and extremely nice. We hope to stay in this apartment again. Highly recommended.

Didn't Want to Leave!!!

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is a little slice of heaven in a very quiet and convenient neighborhood, just a short walk to El Born and the beach and all the sights. Aida couldn't have been more helpful with amazing dining suggestions and places to go. A terrific hostess! Everything was as expected and more. Clean, well-provisioned and comfortable. Highly recommended.

Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just came back from 10 wonderful days in Eric's apartment. The location is fantastic and is walking distance to everthing Barcelona has to offer. The apartment is EXTREMELY clean--it is spotless. It has what very new kitchen appliances, a very nice TV that offers English channels and a wonderful terrace. The master bedroom has lots of drawer/hanger space. Those staying in the smaller bedroom might want to be aware that there are no drawers in that room, but there is a cabinet outside of the room that can be used. There are grocery stores very near the apartment also. I had many questions along the way and Eric was wonderful with answering any that I asked of him. He was not able to be in Barcelona while we were there but his friend Aida was a wonderful hostess. When you arrive, you will not be disappointed--this apartment is as pictured. Nothing is covered up and you will NOT find surprises when you get there! If there were more stars to give, I'd have given them!

We had a great time in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

We, a family of 2 adults and 2 children had a great time in Barcelona on December 24, 2013 to January 9, 2014. It was superb!

The excellent location of the apartment allowed us to do without a car. We had excellent hiking (sometimes use a taxi) to the main attractions of Barcelona.

Great shops, restaurants, parks and entertainment are within reach.

Many thanks to Floriana and Eric.

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!
