Our home

We are offering our much loved apartment in the Barri Gothic area in Barcelona. It is in an old residential building with lovely mix of elderly and young neighbours and so is definitely not a party house! It has a recently installed elevator and a communal terrace with uninterrupted rooftop views. Night-time with a glass of vino in hand is when Barcelona shows off her glittering finery. The apt. is 90sq.m., very bright and spacious with windows in all rooms. The main studio/living space is very large and has two full length french windows opening to small balconies with spectacular views of an adjacent old monastery. It waslovingly restored last year, making sure to retain the original floor tiles, wooden beams and windows. There is a large fully tiled toilet and washbasin, with extra large open shower. We also have a seperate second toilet and wash-room.
Therry has a passion for cooking and the kitchen reflects this. We installed a double sink and a Smeg cooker with electric fan oven and a 5 burner gas hob. The big antique pine table will comfortably fit 8 people. The apt. is furnished with an eclectic mix of IKea and antiques. We have a space set up for art, complete with easel... we would be happy for you to do some drawing/painting to should the views tempt you.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The apartment is situated in the centre of the Barri Gotic which is the nucleus of old Barcelona. It's a maze of interconnecting narrow streets linking with squares, and there are plenty of cafes and bars and good restaurants. It isa five minute walk from the main Cathedral 'El Seu' and is adjacent to two of the city's most significant buildings the Ajuntament and the Palau de la Generalitat on the Plaça de Sant Jaume. This is where the nearist taxi rank is. We are also a five minute walk from two the Metro stations, the Liceu (Ramblas) and Jaume 1( Plaça del Angel)
Calle Lleona lies off the Plaça Reial (see photo, the street is accessed through the secong archway)
