Overview

About the property

Penthouse flat, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, 1 sitting room, 1 terrace (Sleeps 2)

This quiet and cosy flat is located on the penthouse floor of a 19th century classic building with a concierge.

The flat has a small fully equipped kitchen with a two ring hob, fridge, washing machine and cutlery, pots and pans. There is a bedroom, a sitting room and has a beautiful planted terrace with deck chairs. Also there is cable t-v and free internet via WIFI.

Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí.

You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for.

It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona. Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.

The Eixample is one of the prettiest and safest districts of Barcelona. Places of interest not to miss: Plaza Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia with those beautiful Antonio Gaudi’s buildings such as La Pedrera and La Casa Battló and Plaza España that has a fountain display with lights and music in the evening time.

About Philippe Bareilles

Hello, I am born in 1954, I speak english, spanish and french. I was before in the movie business and studied production at NYU in 1980-1983, and since 2005 I dedicate myself to tourism. It is much quieter!

Philippe Bareilles purchased this condo in 1995

Why Philippe Bareilles chose Dreta de l'Eixample

It is the best location in Barcelona and Barcelona is one of the best place in the world. Sea, mountains and countryside within few minutes drive.

What makes this condo unique

This penthouse is right in the center heart of the city and it is very calm and quiet.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Phiilppe -

Wayne and I enjoyed your beautiful apartment, the perfect entrance to our trip through Spain. . . . It is so well appointed. Everything that I could have wanted was right at hand. Not once did I wish I had something. I spent one morning in your bright and sunny reading room just making plans for the day. What a wonderful experience, walking from the street through massive wooden doors and soaring ceilings and polished marble floors. Thank goodness for the lift! The penthouse outdoor living area was the perfect place to check the weather, read my book or just relax.

The location was superb. The street has a median filled with restaurants with outdoor seating. One restaurant we couldn't resist on several occasions. Great food. A little coffee shop across the street for a quick bite or coffee on the run. A bakery. A bookstore. A straight shot in one direction to the bustle of a city with great shopping and the tourist buses that give sunshine and earphones to guide us through Barcelona. So many defining historical points are waiting to disclose their secrets. The other direction? More restaurants and shops . . . linens and perfumeries. Oh, and a bookstore. close by.

The next time I come back to Barcelona - and I will be back - I will be in touch to stay in this space.

Fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

You couldn’t ask for a better location We had everything we needed and everything went very smoothly. Both Philippe and Arjeanne were great to deal with. The best part was having the outdoor patio to relax on after a busy day sightseeing

Well located, immaculate and quiet

  • 5 of 5

Conveniently located, very comfortable for a couple and quiet for sleeping. Good bed, good shower, immaculately maintained. It took 90 minutes from the time our plane touched down until we arrived at nearby Plaza Catalunya via Aeuroporto bus. The apartment building is also lovely, quiet and clean.

a beautiful apartment, in a historic building, in a centrally located, but quiet, neighborhood!

  • 5 of 5

as a seasoned traveler, you must always remember that minor things (when tired), like extra steps to/from the elevator, mean nothing to the overall experience!

I stayed in Philippe's apt 3 days at the beginning of my trip & 3 days at the end. the apt was clean & comfortable & nicely decorated. Philippe is a gracious host; he informed me there was an issue with the hot water heater, and took care of it immediately! His assistant Jean, was just delightful! She greeted me at the door upon both arrivals & helped me with my luggage; she also was extremely helpful with internet logistics! When I returned to the apt at the end of my stay in Barcelona, I felt like I was going "home"! I would absolutely recommend this apt & I would stay there again!...

...an added bonus is the Reserva Iberica shop nearby...I would stay here again just for their amazing sandwich & the Cacao Sampaka shop/cafe for their churros y chocolate!!

!gracias Philippe!
