AN APARTMENT WITH CHARM AND HISTORY

The apartment has been renovated and furnished in a contemporary and modern style by a famous architect. It was published in prestigious national and international decoration magazines and has been shown in two programs form the local TV. The building is of the seventeenth century. The renovation has discovered the original features of the apartment, mixing Catalan vaults, old beams and mud bricks, all original and combined with avant-garde elements and materials.

Living in this apartment is an exciting experience. The architecture was designed to create space through the movement of wooden panels, creating truly exquisite volumes and spaces.

You can change the shape of the apartment, with easy movements of its panels, creating spaces to suit you, so that you can either have closed rooms or open spaces, depending on what you want at any time .

The lighting in this apartment was treated with care, creating shadows and highlights in all the rooms. The apartment has a perimeter lighting all over the walls to give prominence to the viewed brick from 1800. This lighting gives a sense of depth in all areas.

At the top, there is a wonderful light that shows the Catalan vaulted ceilings and the exposed and restored old beams.

All doors and windows are original from the nineteenth century and have been restored and fitted with great care and detail.

Inside the apartment we created a small floating garden that connects the inner courtyard.

The whole apartment is refurbished with natural wood base.

The apartment has two balconies overlooking the street. On the balcony you can sit on a chair and read while enjoying the wonderful view of the church Santa Maria del Mar. You can see thousands of people passing through the gate of the church which is a unique setting and a treat for the senses.

The living room has a round table perfect for 5 persons and is very close to the open and transparent kitchen, creating spaces through a glass. It even has a special refrigerator for wine and champagne.

Everything in this apartment is a blend of luxury, tradition and modernism.

It is divided into the following areas and rooms:

• Master bedroom.

• Bedroom with a bunk bed and a trundle bed.

• Two full bathrooms.

• Living room equipped with a sofa, table and four chairs and a kitchen with center island, with all facilities and cutting-edge line.

Ideal for a couple or a young family.

GOING OUT: HISTORY, CUISINE, ART, BEACH, NIGHTLIFE

The apartment is in the center of Barcelona. From the balcony you can see less than 20 meters away the main facade of the cathedral of Santa Maria del Mar, the protagonist of the bestseller THE CATHEDRAL OF THE SEA. Of course, if you like history and medieval period, this is your place.

Located in the Gothic Quarter, in the Born area where today are positioned workshops and art galleries, local fashion designers, great terraces and restaurants offering many dining options.

There are also streets around the apartment now iconic like the one where the movie "Perfume" based on the book by Patrick Suskind was filmed. From the apartment you can go walking to the beach of Barceloneta in less than ten minutes. Fifteen minutes you can also find the famous Plaza Real, in which Woody Allen filmed Vicky, Cristina, Barcelona.

And if you don't feel like walking, don't worry, the subway is right next door and there are also several bus lines that take you to any part of the city.

Also very close is the shopping street Portal del Angel. Where you can find anything you need: boutiques, bookstores, etc! Not only the most popular stores, also original products from small shops, decorating shops, crafts, or whatever you can not find anywhere else.

And the best is to wander through the streets and end up at the Church of Pi, a jewel of Romanesque art, or the Church of San Felipe Neri. Or, if you prefer to walk with the family on the Ramblas surrounded by flowers up to the fantastic Boqueria market and then down to walk past the restored building of the Liceu, the port and reach the promenade.

If you like music and architecture you can find also next to the apartment the Palau de la Música, a jewel of Catalan modernist architect Domenech i Muntaner, a disciple of Gaudí, the architect of the Sagrada Familia.

And if you walk up all Via laietana you would see also part of the Roman walls. So, you have the whole history of the city within walking distance.

Although the best is the apartment itself. As it is in the Gothic and old fishing district, the architect took the original structure and reconverted into a dream. Looks like you're in another era, but with the comforts of XXI century. A loft design but with the air of an old fisherman's house. Sometimes it feels like being on a boat. You have two balconies overlooking medieval, many light, and much comfort. It is ideal for families with children, romantic couples or groups of friends who want to have fun.

Also, if you like football and want to see FC Barcelona in their natural habitat, the Nou Camp, if you want to watch live the best players in the world, Messi, Piqué, Valdés, Xavi, Iniesta, Villa, Puyol and Fabregas , the legendary "dream team" that Pep Guardiola created you can access within minutes by subway from the apartment.

Of course, if you want to have fun and spend some romantic days surrounded by history and glamor, this is your place.

The Catalunia region

Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid, with a population of 1,621,537 within its administrative limits on a land area of 101.4 km2 (39 sq mi). The urban area of Barcelona extends beyond the administrative city limits with a population of between 4,200,000

and 4,500,000[2] within an area of 803 km2 (310 sq mi), being the sixth-most populous urban area in the European Union after Paris, London, the Ruhr, Madrid and Milan. About five million people live in the Barcelona metropolitan area. It is also the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea. It is located on the Mediterranean coast between the mouths of the rivers Llobregat and Besòs and is bounded to the west by the Serra de Collserola ridge (512 m/1,680 ft).

Founded as a Roman city, Barcelona became the capital of the County of Barcelona. After merging with the Kingdom of Aragon, Barcelona became one of the most important cities of the Crown of Aragon. Besieged several times during its history, Barcelona has a rich cultural heritage and is today an important cultural centre and a major tourist destination. Particularly renowned are the architectural works of Antoni Gaudí and Lluís Domènech i Montaner, which have been designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites. The headquarters of the Union for the Mediterranean is located in Barcelona. The city is known for hosting the 1992 Summer Olympics as well as world-class conferences and expositions and also many international sport tournaments.

Barcelona is today one of the world's leading tourist, economic, trade fair/exhibitions and cultural-sports centres, and its influence in commerce, education, entertainment, media, fashion, science, and the arts all contribute to its status as one of the world's major global cities. Indeed, it is a major cultural and economic centre in southwestern Europe (Iberian Peninsula), 26th in the world (after Moscow, before Dubai) and a growing financial centre (Diagonal Mar and Gran Via). It is the fourth economically powerful city by GDP in the European Union and 35th in the world with an output amounting to €177 billion. As of 2009 the city was ranked Europe's third and one of the world's most successful as a city brand. At the same time, the city was ranked Europe's fourth best city for business and fastest improving European city, with growth improved by 17% per year. Barcelona is the transport hub with one of Europe's principal ports, Barcelona international airport, which handles above 34 million passengers per year, extensive motorway network and also is a hub of high-speed rail, particularly that which is intended to link Spain with France and the rest of Europe as the second longest in the world.

If you come I can recommend some very special places, less known to tourists, and not listed in the directory. Are these places I call authentic.

"Appartement spacieux bien décoré bonne literie, propre dans l'ensemble mis à part rideau occultant de..."

Appartement spacieux bien décoré bonne literie, propre dans l'ensemble mis à part rideau occultant de la salle de bain couvert de moisissures, télévision et chauffage qui ne fonctionnait pas, manque d'ustensiles de cuisine pour faire les repas, comme partout dans le centre de Barcelone le bruit de la rue la nuit surtout pour la chambre qui donne dans le séjour côté rue, par contre voisins du dessus très calme. Points positif cet appartement et bien situé quand aux visites touristiques et commerçants, tout peux ce faire à pied. Si les détails cité sont corrigé cet appartement peut être encore plus agréable et j'y reviendrais avec plaisir.

Merci d'avoir répondu à mon commentaire, si vous avez fait les changements pour améliorer cet appartement il sera encore plus confortable, et les nouveaux arrivants seront très heureux d'y séjournée, si j'ai un nouvel avis a donner pour votre appartement c'est que vous êtes à l'écoute de vos clients et que vous avez su résoudre les petits problèmes, et pour tout vous dire j'ai déjà conseillé votre appartement à mes amis car il est très bien situé dans la ville, quand au bruit de la rue vous n'y pouvez rien c'est la vie. A bientôt lors de ma nouvelle visite à Barcelone.
Bien cordialement.
Marc

Bonjours Marc, merci pour votre avis. Il est toujours bon d'entendre les commentaires de nos clients de voir où nous pouvons nous améliorer.Nous avons changé le rideau était moisi, ce qui se produit généralement lorsque vous le refermez encore humide après la douche, idéalement il devrait être sec et ensuite etre refermé. Nous avons fixé la télévision, mais nous allons bientôt la changer pour une plus grande et mettre l'Apple TV. Le chauffage fonctionne bien, en revanche il fallait faire un "reset", les appareils sont parfois imprévisibles.
En ce qui concerne le bruit et c'est quelque chose que nous ne maitrisons malheureusement pas, nous avons fait ce qui était en notre pouvoir: nous avons changé les fenêtres avec double vitrage sachant que le centre de Barcelone est ce que vous le savez, trés bruyant. Barcelone est une ville pleine de vie et de mouvements, la chance d'être logé au centre vous permet de ressentir et de vivre cette expérience. Par ailleurs, vous mentionnez la chambre aux panneaux coulissants pour isoler complètement la pièce, peut-être ces panneaux n'étaient ils pas fermés?

S'il vous plaît laissez-nous savoir si vous pensez qu'il ya quelque chose que nous pourrions faire pour rendre l'appartement mieux.

Bonne journée
