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).

Excellent appt for groups and families

5 of 5
The appt is centrally located, clean, spacious and comfortable. The 3 bathrooms help in getting things organized quickly in the morning. Unfortunately, the hot water runs out quickly. But that is the only thing that could be improved. We had a great time!

Cozy Barcelona Apartment

5 of 5
Wow! What a great place to stay! We are a family of 4 and everyone had a comfortable bed and modern accommodations. The building is private, secure, and centrally located. Love the kitchen and the living room with a door onto the balcony. The view of the Sagrada Familia from our private balcony, and also from the rooftop deck is amazing! I really appreciate the wonderful BCN Team who answered all of my questions before the trip quickly and thoroughly. Then once we were there, they checked in on us personally to see how we were doing and they gave us great sightseeing tips on specific lines to take to the sights, which ones had special rates and anything else we could need to know, even before we knew we needed it! Very impressive. Pierre gave wonderful service. You made our first trip to beautiful Barcelona even better!
