About our home

Our spacious 130m2 (including terrace with table for dining al fresco) apartment, located in the heart of Barcelona, is beautiful, convenient and very well-equipped. It has three bedrooms that sleep a total of six: a master bedroom with a queen bed and two kids rooms, one with a single bed, and a second with an elevated single bunk and a futon underneath that sleeps two. An additional portable crib AND cot available are also available. There are two bathrooms (bath shower combination in one, shower in another), an extremely large kitchen, a light and airy living area and balconies on each side. Our front balcony overlooks a lovely plaza complete with palm trees and parrots; we have brunch on this balcony on sunny winter weekends. Our back terrace looks over a quiet courtyard; we have dinner on this terrace most summer evenings. Our apartment building is full of Eixample charm with its turn-of-the-century architecture, but the apartment itself was newly remodeled just prior to our moving in in 2004.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

We live in the Barcelona city CENTER, 5 minutes walking distance to Casa Batlló by Gaudí (Passeig de Gràcia / Aragó), 10 mins walking to La Rambla. Our neighborhood is safe and family-friendly. We live on a small plaza (in French "place") that has 2 playgrounds for children (age 1.5 - 6). You will find couples and families enjoying the summer evening stroll around 7:30pm on the nearby high-end shopping street, Rambla Catalunya (not to be confused with La Rambla). In our neighborhood, there many nice restaurants and cafés with outdoor seating - some which serve food all day - which is helpful for families. There is a very nice aquarium here and a zoo, and in a 15 minute taxi ride or a 20 minute bus ride, you will be at Barceloneta beach which is great place to take young children to play in the sand. For a dip in the Mediterranean, we are a 10 minute walk from the train station, from which you can go to Sitges beach which is perfect for families in 30 minutes or to the Costa Brava in about 1 hour. We are served by 6 metro/train lines and more bus lines than I can list. The local buses take all types of baby cars/strollers and are a wonderful way to take in the sights of the city. However, it's likely that you'll never need to use any of these considering this prime location.

Buzzy restaurants
We will provide a complete list depending on time of year (as there are annual August and Winter closings).
