Ciutat Vella apartment description

UNBEATABLE GOTHIC QUARTER LOCATION

We just finished renovating this three bedroom apartment in Barcelona's emblematic Gothic quarter, in Carrer de la Mercé. Near to the Cathedral of La Merced - Barcelona's patron Saint - and right in the heart of 'Old Barcelona'.

This apartment is right next door to our larger apartment, which we have owned and operated for 10 years with 5 star comments (see listing #132527). This is a beautifully furnished air-conditioned flat in an historic building with every comfort and decorated to the highest standards. Located just off the seafront, only five minutes' walk from the famous Ramblas in one direction and The Born in the opposite direction. Surrounded by myriad restaurants and tapas bars.

Medieval sights abound mixed in with shops of every description and sidewalk café life. A short stroll takes you to the Port Vell--Barcelona's beautiful old port, lined with restaurants and museums and location of Barcelona's acquarium and the Marenostrum shopping and entertainment complex. From there, you can take the cable car to Montjuic - location of the Spanish Village and the Miró Foundation - for amazing views of Barcelona and the port.

Walk the other way and you are in front of Barcelona's medieval cathedral and near to Plaza Catalunya. The Picasso museum is a few minute's walk, in the heart of The Born. Wander along to The Ramblas and soak up the colors, sights and aromas of the famous La Boquería market: 150 years old and still a feature of Barcelona and a great place for lunch. A few minutes further on brings you to the MACBA, Barcelona's museum of Contemporary Art.

The apartment is a genuine home from home with 4 metre ceilings and two balconies. Comfortable living/dining room with original works of art, satellite TV, WIFI, and iPod/iPhone/iPad dock; fully equipped kitchen, air conditioning, central heating, two bathrooms, washer and dryer. Easy access to the airport, train stations and minutes from two metro stations.

              Other Amenities

                  • This apartment is in a pedestrian street in a fantastic neighbourhood with great ambiance. Restaurants and tapas bars line the streets of the Gothic Quarter. As a consequence, noise filters up from people chatting on the street. This is especially evident when the doors to the balconies are open. The doors are double glazed and when closed, noise is reduced to a minimum. We have fitted the master bedroom with an extra set of double glazed doors to ensure maximum possible silence. The two single bedrooms are at the back of the apartment and not affected by street noise....moreless

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2013

                      About the owner: Pleased to meet you! We love the location of this apartment - right in the heart of the Gothic Quarter - walking distance from just about everything. We have lived in Catalonia for over twenty years. Rita spent 20 years in the hotel business worldwide and understands what travellers want. John is an international art consultant. We want to help you enjoy this wonderful city by making you feel right at home in very comfortable surroundings.

                      Why the Owner Chose Ciutat Vella:
                      Ten years ago, we bought the apartment next door, so we couldn't resist taking over this apartment, too and have just finished renovating it. Barcelona is such a great city! We both visited Barcelona before we met and had an instant love affair with the city and its people. We wanted to buy an apartment which we could use to explore Barcelona and experience the sights, sounds and aromas that make Barcelona such a great place to visit. There is no place so emblematic than Barcelona's Gothic Quarter and this apartment gives us the comfort of home within walking distance to all the sights in the historic part of the city.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      We love strolling over to the famous Ramblas and visiting the incredible La Boqueria market which recently celebrated its 150th anniversary - unique in all of Europe. Some of our favorite restaurants are just minutes away by foot or taxi. We love walking along the boardwalk on the Barceloneta beach at sunset.
