Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain, Your Home Away From Home

Eixample is a district of the Spanish city of Barcelona, and its name, interestingly enough, literally means “extension” in Catalan. The unique layout of this district was the brainchild of Ildefons Cerdà, who envisioned a strict grid pattern with long, straight streets, crossed by wide avenues with blocks with chamfered corners. Only half of his vision was carried through, but even so, what remains is a glorious testament to a far thinking planner. The district is often divided into two, and some neighbourhoods are quite affluent. An apartment in Eixample, Barcelona will be of the very highest standard, and will offer all the comforts that you would come to expect when staying in a modern, bustling city.

Things to Do on Holiday in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

Staying in self catering accommodation in Eixample, Barcelona, puts you on the very doorstep of some of the most spectacular modern architecture in not only Spain, but the world. A must see is the Sagrada Familia, a unique and often bewildering structure that is Gaudi’s unfinished basilica masterpiece. Some have described it as a termite mound, others as a cavern. See what you think! Of course, this area of Barcelona is associated very closely with Gaudi, and it might be worthwhile buying a small guide to the architecture in this area in order to appreciate it all the more. One of the most photographed buildings is La Pedrera, an avant garde building that also contains a museum to Gaudi.

Places to Visit on Holiday in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

Holidays in Eixample, Barcelona, are all about getting out from the apartment and exploring the city. A stroll down the street known as La Rambla is a must do, with its artists, street merchants, jugglers, dancers and musicians all adding life on the mile long road at different times of the day. Barcelona isn’t all about Gaudi, some of it is about Picasso as well! He spent quite a bit of his youth here, and there is a museum dedicated to him. If your visit is in the month of September, then you might like to witness and take part in the Festes del la Mercee, which is a week-long fiesta, with dance, performances and fireworks. Remember, that events in the evening in Spain begin a lot later than some people from the United Kingdom are used to! If you enjoyed the party, then perhaps a flamenco class or two might be just up your street, but if you have two left feet, then seeing a visit to El Tablao de Carmen is probably better!

Weather in Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

For your holidays in Eixample, Barcelona, you can be sure of some amazing weather, almost year around. That said, the month of August may be a little too amazing for some – I.e. humid. Therefore, if you wish to stay at a self catering accommodation in Eixample during this month, you may wish to choose one with air conditioning. May to the end of July provides the very best weather with temperatures often hitting the low thirties degrees Celsius, but even a winter trip will seem much warmer than back in the United Kingdom at the same time of year, averaging around 11 degrees.

Travel to Eixample, Barcelona, Spain

Being a major Spanish city, Barcelona is well connected to other major cities around the world. Almost every airline imaginable seems to fly into Barcelona, from the flagship airlines, to the budget ones. Whilst the budget airlines say that they fly into Barcelona, they actually use the smaller airports far outside of the city. It is far better to fly into the main Barcelona airport (BCN), and a typical flight might be on British Airways or Iberia from London Heathrow (LHR), London Gatwick (LGW) or Manchester (MAN).

The seafront and La Rambla less than 10 minutes walk away. There are plenty of tapas bars just 5 minutes away too. The apartment itself is modern, clean (the most important aspect for us!) and has everything you need for a week away from home. Importantly it had airconditioning in each room but this was not needed as it had a balcony and large windows to let fresh air through the aprtment. Coffee maker, microwave, hob, toaster etc was all there, but it was the smaller items like sponges, cloths, bin liners and washing up liquid which meant not having to worry about running down to a supermarket (which is 100 yards away!). Also really useful were several guide b0oks (up to date!) and local information too. There was enough space in the apartment for the four of us even though the living/dining room and kitchen were combined. Two rooms had a TV, there was a Playstation and a washing machine too but we didn't use these. Also, there was wifi too- - very useful if still planning your agenda! Joan, the owner, was really helpful and friendly. Easily contactable and made our arrival/departure very easy. Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone planning a trip to the beatiuful Barcelona.

Searching for suitable accommodation I came across the Paseo de Gracia C apartment – so glad I did. From the initial communication right through to our stay, things ran very smoothly. Marcel arranged a five-seater taxi to pick us up from the airport which dropped us off right outside. Anna was waiting for us in the apartment and check in was easy and quick. The apartment is light, airy, wonderfully clean and HUGE! It had everything we could possible need for our week long stay. We were also amazed at how close it was to so many of Barcelona’s wonderful attractions as well as restaurants, bars and one of the nicest supermarkets in the basement of El Corte Ingles. Transport wasn’t a problem either – buses ran in all directions, there’s a metro station right outside and a taxi rank which you can see from the apartment’s small balcony. The station for trains to Montmelo (Circuit de Cataluyna for the Grand Prix) was just steps away. I would have absolutely no hesitation in staying at this apartment again. In fact, I am hopeful that it will be available for next year’s trip. Many thanks to you, Marcel, and your team– I really hope to be able to use your great service again next year.
