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 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.

Au centre de tout !!

  • 5 of 5

Ce fût un bon choix. Monsieur Philippe est très gentil et accueillant. Pour ma part, aucun besoin de louer une auto vous êtes près de tout. Resto, boutiques , épicerie etc...L'appartement est très propre ce qui est pour ma part très important. Parfait pour une ou deux personnes car cet apart est petit mais avec tout les besoins nécessaires. l'ascenseur à eu quelques failles mais bon j'aimais mieux prendre les marches. Pour avoir visité les différents quartiers c'est celui-ci mon préféré, les rues sont larges avec des centres bordés de cafés, restos etc...vous vous sentez en sécurité.

Place Catalunya est à côté de cet endroit, vous pouvez prendre les tours d'autobus etc... vous pouvez même prendre si vous le désirez non loin l'autobus pour rendre à l'éroport ou pour arriver à Barcelone. Vous pouvez louer sans crainte, c'est calme et invitant ! Merci M.Bareille. Je note votre adresse pour mes amis et pour moi-même .

Even Better than the Pictures!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful apartment. It was our oasis each day after the heat and crowds of the city. The apartment has everything you need and Philippe is a perfect host. He was very responsive to any of our questions before our stay and even checked in with us during our stay to see if there was anything else we needed. The bed is very comfortable, the kitchen self-contained, the bathroom has plenty of room and the terrace was beautiful. I have to say, however, that our favorite room was the sitting/living/sun room. The chairs are really comfy and the room is light and airy with a lovely bookcase filled with books to pique anyone's interest, plus a number of tour books of Barcelona and Spain. The penthouse was the perfect place to start and end our days. Location is superb. Very safe and close in proximity to everything - restaurants, tapas bars, shopping, sightseeing and a metro stop a block away to get anywhere you can't walk to. We HIGHLY recommend this penthouse or any other property Philippe may have!

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect! Philippe's apartment exceeded all of our expectations. It's very clean, stylishly appointed and offers everything you might need. We enjoyed the beautiful terrace each morning for our morning coffee and to plan out our day, and relaxing in the afternoon after a long day of exploring the city sights. You couldn't ask for a better location. The area is full of restaurants and shops, and is vibrantly full of life, yet when you come home after your adventures and turn the key, its like a little oasis.

The booking process was simple. Philippe responded immediately to any of our questions and check-in was even easier. I would highly recommend staying during your next adventure to Barcelona.

Thank you Philippe for your hospitality and sharing this beautiful place!

Perfection on Every Level!

  • 5 of 5

I have use HomeAway and VBRO services for most of our overseas travels, and by far, this apartment was my favorite! Everything about it was perfection – the space, amenities, location, cleanliness and overall ease of booking. My husband and I are creatures of comfort, so we were thrilled to find that the bed, which was ideal for our comfort needs, even had memory foam pillows! The terrace and view were also lovely bonuses and made for a perfect retreat from a long day of sightseeing. I can see why this apartment is rated so high, and we definitely plan to come back! Thank you, Philippe, your warm hospitality and providing us with a delightful home away from home.
