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 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.

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!

We had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The flat is clean, large and in a wonderful location. We enjoyed our time and would stay here again.

Thanks for all your hospitality.

Ideal Apartment

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is beautifully appointed. The owner has anticipated nearly everything the guests would require and want. It was spotlessly clean, in a good, quiet and safe neighborhood with stores and cafes very handy. It would have been nice to access one English TV station such as CNN or BBC; however, it's my fault for not learning more Spanish!

I would highly recommend this property, and may try to book it again soon.

Perfect Place

  • 5 of 5

Wow Eric you really gave us a wonderful place to escape the busyness of Barcelona. Central to parking for our car, great location for walking everywhere and an apartment that was spotless and beautifully presented. It was a fantastic space for 3 adults and every detail was thought out. Loved staying there and highly recommend.

An oasis in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I booked this because of the open garden, a rare gem, in a city of apartments and I was not disappointed.

The bedrooms had limited light but this was more than made up for by the open living/dining areas and kitchen. The garden was well used by our kids and it even had an outdoor shower. It was great to sit back and have drinks and some finger food in late afternoons.

The location was supreme, located on a quiet street right around the corner of a Main Street with ample restaurants and grocery stores.

Eric is very attentive and, even though he was away on vacation, he had a very good friend meet us. Cinzia, a naturalpath and smart and witty woman, showed us around and made sure we were completely comfortable. Eric is extremely organized and I appreciate his attention to detail.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Eric"s loft during our visit to Barcelona. The location was perfect for walking to several top tourist destinations and the neighborhood felt safe. The apartment itself was well-furnished and clean. It was nice to have air conditioning and laundry facilities! The reservation, check in and check out process was easy and we appreciated the assistance in having a prearranged taxi pickup upon leaving Barcelona.
