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.

AMAZING!!!

  • 5 of 5

This flat was heaven in Barcelona! Our family of 4 stayed here for two weeks and had the best time. The terrace was key! It's clean, modern design was simple yet comfortable. The location of the flat is perfect for walking and hiking all over Barcelona. The owner and manager of the property are very helpful with tips on where to go and what to see as well. Highly highly recommended!

Great apartment.

  • 4 of 5

Stayed in this apartment with my partner and our eight year old daughter over the Easter weekend and had a wonderful time. We travelled to the apartment from El Prat airport on the Metro, which was not the best decision as we had to change trains and it took quite a while. However, the plus point was that we emerged right at the Arc De Triomf in the glorious sunshine which was a lovely sight. It was then a short walk to the apartment which was easy to locate. We were met outside by Cinzia who gave us plenty of information about the apartment and the nearby amenities.

The apartment itself was exactly as portrayed in the photos, very clean, modern and spacious. The kitchen had a decent range of crockery and cooking utensils. The large American style fridge freezer was more than adequate for our requirements and the availability of a Nespresson coffee machine with some coffee pods was a welcome find. As was the bottle of red wine!!! There was a little noise from the apartment above early in the morning and at night but this was a small child running around rather than loud music and did not spoil our stay at all.

Very close to the apartment were a couple of well stocked mini markets which covered all our requirements. The apartment was very well located and we walked easily to the Sagrada Familia, Parc de la Ciutuadella and the Zoo, and Placa de Catalunya and Las Ramblas. The area felt very safe to walk around, even at night.

We returned to the airport by walking the Placa de Catalunya, which only took 20 minutes, got straight on to the Aerobus and were in the departure loung 30 minutes later. Extremely easy!

I would strongly recommend this accommodation and we would happily return and stay there again.

Thank you, Eric and Cinzia.

Un apport comme a la maison... mais a Barcelone

  • 5 of 5

barcelone comme si on y habitait. ce fut un plaisir d'être dans cet appartement qui est très grand et dispose de deux chambres. quel luxe. l espace est très bien connu et l on s'y sent comme chez soi. deux chambre deux salle de bain c'est autant de temps gagné pour être prêt a visiter cette merveilleuse ville. la terrasse est un vrai plus quad il fait beau afin de manger ou prendre l'apéritif. Eric a vraiment tout bien pensé: serviettes drap de lit et meme une bouteille de vin de bienvenue. pour nous professionnels de l'hotellerie nous donnons un grand A a ce lieu et a son manager. encore merci et a bientôt car nous reviendrons a Barcelone

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!
