See inside our Barcelona flat - or click to more photos inside our Barcelona holiday apartment. If you're going to stay in Barcelona, one of the greatest cities on earth, then you'll want to be in the centre. Located by the famous Las Ramblas street in the bohemian 'El Raval' district of the Old Town, this apartment is completely 'Barcelona' - a heady mix of traditions and stylishness with more than a touch of craziness. The wall murals were by Dutch industrial designer Jan Habraken, the bedroom by California designer Mina Javid. The flat is owned by Greg who founded and runs Under the Thatch.
Within a few minutes walk you can be swimming in the Mediterranean, discovering one of Gaudi's masterpieces, or just enjoying the best Tapas in the world from one of the hundreds of restaurants and bars within walking distance; see some local sights that we've snapped. You won't even need to use public transport to see most of the great sights - just walk through the winding streets of the old town. And when you do need to go to the outskirts of town the metro is within sight of your balcony. The newly restored Palau Guell by Gaudi is a mere 250m/ 3 minute walk.
Under the Thatch isn't a very 'city' kind of company but we LOVE Barcelona, its energy, vibrant culture and 'joie de vivre'. This flat will appeal to designers, artists, architects and anyone who likes to have a good time - you're right in the heart of the most fashionable area which has a sense of 'fin de siècle' Paris about it - Absinthe bars, prostitutes, street performers, restaurants that reflect the diverse ethnic community, retro boutiques and tapas bars.
The top-floor flat overlooks a small square with carob trees (mostly pedestrianised) that has a few bars on it, a 3 or 4 minute walk from Las Ramblas. You have a long open view to Montjuic mountain, the Olympic outdoor pool/ diving stages and can see Paral-lel metro station from the balcony. Two minute walk to good, affordable food and stylish bars with retro/designer interiors.
