Why Bea and Stephen Garforth chose Eixample

We fell in love with this apartment because it is in a most beautiful palatial modernist house in L'Eixample, a district with some superb classically designed buildings constructed in the late 19th Century, yet within walking distance of the old city & many sites in central Barcelona. The apartment is spacious light and quiet a great place to come home to after a busy day in Barcelona.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a fantastic time in Barcelona and loved the flat We also appreciate all the great suggestions in the book. Also Rachel was great. Very helpful! Your suggestions were great and we ate at Aqua twice and at a few of the other recommendations too! There is so much to do and see in Barcelona, I am sure we will come back again. We will certainly recommend your lovely flat as we really enjoyed it. The book full of suggestions was very useful.

The only suggestion I could think of that might help people, concerns Barcelona's layout of the underground. A more explicit indication in your book of the underground system might be useful.

The apartment was well appointed, and we loved the way it was decorated. Also so nice to open up the windows and look out onto the courtyard! It was great to be able to print out boarding passes from the printer (much appreciated) and the bottle of wine was a welcome gesture! In all, we could think of nothing that we would want changed. The area was great and so convenient.

Thank you so much for everything. We have some fond memories of our time in Barcelona and would love to return. We will certainly highly recommend your flat to others and appreciate all you did to make our stay so great.



With Kindest Regards,

Impeccable apartment in great location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this apartment as a family of four for 5 nights in November. The apartment was wonderfully clean and attractively decorated. The kitchen and bathrooms were elegantly updated with every appliance you would possibly need. Comfortable beds and very quiet for sleeping. The location was fantastic, an easy walk to the Gothic area and Plaza de Catalunya, including the Ramblas and Passeig de Gracia. The owner's provided a list of recommended restaurants which were spot on! A lift, good wifi and AC were all in top working order. You can't go wrong with this apartment.

Lovely apartment in a very good location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this lovely apartment for 5 nights during a recent vacation in Barcelona. The apartment and its furnishings are in great condition. The apartment was very clean on our arrival. Photos on the website accurately describe the home. Bed and bath linens were of good quality. Booking and payments were easy. Check in was friendly and efficient. Juan Frenandez, the check in agent, was friendly and professional. The apartment is at the back of the building with a Hitchcock "rear window" like view across a wide courtyard. It is very quiet inside! There is plenty of sunlight in the master bedroom and living room. The owners have provided a useful collection of tourist information and have a large number of recommended restaurants. There is a wifi printer so you can print your tickets for the city's many amazing attractions. Purchase in advance and avoid the long lines at the gates. Access was easy via stairs or lift. The apt on Ronda Sant Pere is well located between the gothic quarter and the Eixample, just a few blocks from the Palau de la Musica. We felt safe in the neighborhood at all hours. We walked almost everywhere. Transportation was easy with a taxi stand and metro stop on the corner. The kitchen appeared to be well supplied. We used the coffee pot and cork screw. There is a supermarket discretely tucked into the first floor of the building. It would be easy to cook meals in the apartment but don't do it! There are just to many wonderful restaurants to try in this amazing city.

This apartment is a great place to stay when visiting Barcelona!

Wonderful, comfortable, well located apartment

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I rented this wonderful apartment for 8 nights. It is attractively and comfortably furnished, stylish, quiet and in a great neighborhood. Great amenities, spotlessly clean. We made our own coffee and breakfast every morning in the small but modern kitchen. Beds and linens were good. Faces a courtyard so very quiet at night.

Stunning Apartment

  • 5 of 5

The property instantly felt like our home away from home, the information left about the area from the owners and previous tenants made you feel even more welcome.

The house is short of nothing and made for a lovely first stay in Barcelona. The location couldn't have been any better and the help from the managers was great.

Would definately recommend this apartment!

Outstanding Apartment !

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I, along with another couple, stayed in this apartment for 4 nights in October. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay. The location is ideal--close to amenities like a supermarket, as well as within easy walking distance of many sites in Barcelona. We are all over 60 years of age and walking to both the Sagrada Familia and the Picasso Museum presented no problems. Juan is a very personable and knowledgeable gentleman, who helped up get situated in the apartment, which was exceptionally clean and well-appointed. It exceeded our expectations by a wide margin. I would not have any hesitation about recommending this place to others who are interested in exploring Barcelona.

Fabulous Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

5 of us stayed in this fabulous apartment for 3 nights. It has everything you need for your stay, was very clean and very well appointed. It is ideally situated for the centre of Barcelona and even has a large supermarket next door for any provisions you may need. The owners provided a welcome gift of a lovely bottle of red wine for us (excellent quality too!!). Juan who met us was very friendly and helpful explaining to us everything we needed to know about the apartment and also showed us the folder of restaurants and things to do, which was very useful. All in all, a brilliant and very convenient place to stay in Barcelona - highly recommended!!
