This is a unique penthouse-style apartment. Situated in the chic neighbourhood of Diagonal Mar. Set in a parkland / lakeside setting overlooking the ocean. It is in the Sant Marti quarter, near Port Olympic and only a short distance from fashionable stores, hotels (e.g. Hotel Arts & Casino), and scores of restaurants, theatres, museums and all the places of historical and sporting interest. The apartment is only 300 metres from miles and miles of Barcelona' best beaches.
Barcelona is the vibrant and colourful capital of Catalonia. The city is peppered with many of Gaudi's modernistic and daring architecture, the pinnacle of which is the famously unfinished Sagrada Familia Cathedral.
This is our home when we are in Barcelona and we love it. It has been furnished as a home as befits this sophisticated environment and setting. Torre Sur, Illa de Llac a dramatic slim tower - with only four apartments per floor - and its surroundings, designed by the world-renowned architect Enric Miralles, is not a holiday-type complex. It is a small residential community inhabited by some of Barcelona's most urban professionals.
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 and going about their daily professional lives. If you appreciate the finer points of a unique holiday in Barcelona, then you will love this experience.
However, if what you want, from a visit/vacation/business trip to Barcelona, is an action-packed location or party setting with lots of other like-minded holidaymakers, then this is not the place to rent or to stay in. You will be disappointed and you will have upset our friends and neighbours.
