About our home
***** ONE SHOULD NEVER SAY NEVER, SO WE WON’T, BUT 90% OF THE TIMES WE ARE ONLY INTERESTED IN SWAPPING FOR WELL LOCATED CITY APARTMENTS. NO SUBURBS. *****
Our apartment is located on the very center of Barcelona (some say it’s the equivalent of living in New York’s fifth avenue) and its minutes away from everything; Las ramblas is 2 blocks away, the beach hardly a 15 minutes’ walk, El Born less than a 10 minutes’ walk and many Gaudi building on Paseo de Gracia are literally on the same street. It’s also 5 minutes away from Plaza Catalunya station from where you can not only take several subway lines but also trains that will take you to nearby cities and towns.
Its a corner unit on the fourth floor in front of a plaza facing south, so it gets plenty of natural light through 5 balconies.
The apartment was fully renovated a few years ago when I moved in; double glass windows, wooden floors, stainless steel kitchen, AC, heating, washer and nice minimalist furniture. Being an architect myself every detail was considered!
During the renovation we found a wonderful ceiling that was built using an old catalan building technique and had been hidden for decades. We exposed it and restored it with care, giving the apartment a unique atmosphere thanks to the contrast between the old celling and modern appliances.
Both streets the apartment looks over are car restricted, so you won’t get any traffic noise, plus the very best windows you can find in the market will ensure a super quite space in the heart of the city. You can also chose to close the shutters and you’ll get an almost fully dark room no matter what time of the day. The building has a day-time doorman and a roof deck that can be used for tanning.

“Our stay at Guillermo's apartment in the heart of Barcelona, was nothing short of extraordinary ! The locality, the clean, comfortable, modern , roomy studio apartment, lent itself to experiencing the best of everything Barcelona has to offer. Thank you also Guillermo for your generous help in any enquiries we had regarding being in Barcelona. We have wonderful memories and a very warm heart after our two weeks stay. Thank you, Katrine and Robbi ( Noosa , Australia)”
“We loved Guillermo's apartment - it was like living in a magazine spread! Beautiful styling and big squashy sofas to come home to after exploring Barcelona. The location is superb and we felt right in the heart of the city. Guillermo couldn't have been more helpful too. Peter and Lindsay.”
“Fabulous apartment in perfect location. Guillermo was extremely helpful. We hope to return soon.”
