Our home

170 sq metre loft in a neoclassical building (1915). It's located in Sant Gervasi, an area of the well-known Eixample, very close to the city centre. Our building is within a two-minute walk to the local market and the area is full of shops, cafés and restaurants. The flat, where we have just moved in December after a year of architectural work, is mainly a big space with a lot of light as it is at the last floor of the building. It has a central part with the kitchen and dining-room space, an amazing space for children (15sq m) with a bathroom and terrace and another amazing space with a lounge, suite and terrace. The two main rooms have their own terrace (9sq m). All the spaces can be completely isolated through sliding doors.

Who we are

  1. We are a family of four: Melania (38), Ignacio (46) and our kids, Lucas (4) and Mia (2,5). We moved to the neighborhood last December, although we have been working in the area for the last 20 years. During one year we have worked to turn this flat from 1947 into a very special space. I have an educational company (www.britishsummer.com) and Melania is the Head of Logistics of a language school. Our latest professional project has been opening one of the most singular hotels in Spain (www.consolacion.com.es). We have done 3 exchanges; Amsterdam, Copenhagen and Stockholm. We totally support this way of travelling as it is the best way to immerse in a culture and show our kids how to enjoy sharing what we have and respect spaces. We have fun travelling with the kids, cycling, hanging out with friends, cooking...

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our appartment is in Muntaner street in the district of Sant Gervasi-Galvany, one of the chic residential areas in Barcelona, which combines traditional family life with exclusive shopping and restaurants. You can find everything within walking distance: one of the best markets in the city, restaurants of all sorts, cafes, exclusive patisseries and bakeries,... There is one park just behind our building and a bigger one within a 10m walk.
The area is extremely well connected to the city centre (7m ride on the Ferrocarrils -train-), to the beach (bus 14 outside our flat takes you to Barceloneta in 20m) and to other places of interest like Tibidabo or Barça's Football field.
