Property description

An Unforgettable opportunity to experience Barcelona, staying in a charming 17th century building once a palace. This Unique two bedroom two bath apartment has lots of history in it. It was renovated in 2009 by an extremely sensitive architect that mixed the old art of the building with comfortable areas (that are going to make your vacation very special). It has 4 m high ceilings with wood beams, stonewalls, hydraulic mosaic tiles.

The master bedroom is equipped with its own double rain shower and basin. The shower has lots of history - its walls are covered with a 100-year-old double wood door and it has a unique Murano glass lamp. The other bedroom keeps the original hydraulic floor, which is a true piece of art. There is an additional bathroom with its impressive shower located where once was the stone entrance of the palace. The NEW third additional bathroom has design toilet and washing hands basin (built in December 2011 with lots of style and avant-grade)



You also have your fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher and first class electrical appliances. The living room can accommodate two extra people on its sofa bed. There is also a separate dining room with a Le Corbusier table that fits six people.


WE HAVE INSTALLED A NEW DOUBLE SOUNDPROOF WINDOW TO AVOID THE NORMAL NOISE OF A VIBRANT CITY SUCH AS BARCELONA (July 2011).



ADDITIONAL AMENITIES:

* Complementary bottle of Spanish wine and fruit

* Air conditioning and Runtal heating

* High quality Chortex Peremium towels and cotton linens provided (Zara Home and Calvin Kelin)

* Design Furniture in each room

* Soundproof double glass windows. NEW soundproof double window. Maximum noise isolation

* TV, DVD and Wi-Fi

* Fully equipped kitchen and laundry

We hope you can be comfortable in our flat.

  • The architect decided to have a master room with comfort and avant-garde. There is a double glass cabin with rain shower, whose rear side is a double-leaf wood door with its original wrought iron hinges and lock, over 100 years old, on which six coats of marine varnish were applied for total waterproofing. And it also has a 'cabinet' type washbasin with a big mirror, that wasn't there for the pictures. The room has 4 meters high ceilings with wooden beams and the architect didn't accept to have a 'toilet' inside the room (we tried to convince him, but he said that we would definitely ruin the sense of the room). There are another two bathroom one with shower, a cabinet and a toilet with a window and another one with toilet and washing hand basin....moreless
