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.

Another Great Stay !!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Phillipe's apartment last October for one week and enjoyed Barcelona so much we booked a three day stay after our cruise in June.

Perfectly located just north of Placa Catalunya - we used the Passeig de Gracia Metro stop.

Apartment is well equipped nice kitchen and washing machine for laundry.

Bought some groceries at a Mercado store about 15 minute walk away to the east on Carrer Consell de Cent. There is also a Carrefour a similar distance away on La Rambla.

On our October trip discovered a great all you can eat buffet called Bwok just east of Cortes Inglis Shopping store near the Urquinaona metro stop.

Great selection of dishes for 10 Euros.

Getting back to the apartment we loved the sitting area and large balcony. Lovely breeze was nice after a long day.

Great WIFI connection as well.

We love Barcelona and hope to go back.

Gracie Phillipe !! 👍?👍?👍?

Great location, spotless, loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

It’s a great Apartment for two people, enough space for you both to relax, read, cook. The terrace has great views over the city and lets a lot of light and a lovely cool breeze in.

The surrounding area has upmarket shops, organic supermarket and lovely bars and restaurants . The metro at Placa de Catalunya is minutes away , so it’s very easy to get anywhere in the city.

We would both very happily stay there again and recommend it to our friends.

Excellent apartment and location

  • 5 of 5

Great location and very easy to find from the Airport using the Aerobus. The check in and check out instructions/procedure provided made it a hassle free experience. The apartment was perfect for a couple, clean and everything you need even if you choose to cook yourself and eat in. The roof terrace was the ideal way to start the day eating breakfast and finish the day with a drink in the evening. Overall very pleased we chose this apartment and would recommend to anyone

The perfect place to stay in Barcelona!

  • 5 of 5

The penthouse flat was a huge part of our wonderful stay in Barcelona. It is spotlessly clean, artistically decorated and so very comfortable. The location is perfect. We could walk out the door and find outdoor cafes for breakfast and later for tapas, wine and cappuccino. We were happy to be greeted by a pleasant young woman who explained everything about the apartment. If we’re ever lucky enough to return to Barcelona I definitely want to study here again.

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
