This is a charming attic apartment with a stunning 40m2 terrace with view all over Barcelona 360º panoramic. Located on the 5th floor WITHOUT elevator but a cozy stair. It sleeps up to 4 people(1 double bedroom queen size mattress and 1 double-sofa bed). All the apartment has a lot of natural light.

The terrace is private (40m2), just for my host tu be used. Located over the apartment, not in front. I love plants and flowers. I love to keep my terrace as my little green and blue paradise, where to enjoy nice breakfasts or lovely dinners under stars. You will not believe how quiet it is at night... making you feel as you where in some little town of the countryside. There are a big table and 4 chairs of wood with the ecological certificate FSC.

The other attic of mine, the biggest one, with 2 bedrooms and lif, I call it: 'THE MUSIC PALACE PENTHOUSE', as it is close to the 'El Palau de la musica' , a modernist theater where play great music.
The apartment has a perfect distribution that take profit of each corner to make it bright and spacious. With each of the two rooms separated by the wide open space where we find dining, living room and kitchenette. Giving each room its own privacy. All double beds.
And every room, every wall, every corner windows to enjoy the large terrace surrounding the apartment. Bright spaces with views of sun, sky and rooftops.

Thanks to be at the very top of the building and is surrounded by a large terrace, the apartment is quiet and peaceful, no noise from the street or traffic. Take time to enjoy there a nice dinner or a sunny breakfast. :-)

Area: BORN-Santa Caterina.
On the opposite side of Barcelona’s Gothic quarter, separated by Via Laietana, is the barrio of Born. Although it’s similar in many ways to its Gothic neighbour, it doesn’t draw the same number of tourists. Since the 1980s it has provided a focal point for the city´s artistic scene and now boasts some of the highest property prices in the city – like many other parts of Barcelona it has moved on substantially from its down-at-heel roots to attain such desirability. Attractions in this area streets are everywhere – the opulent Modernisme of the Palau de la Música, the post-modern Mercat de Santa Caterina, and the Gothic splendour of the basilica Santa Maria del Mar – are all within 10 minutes’ walk of each other. The area is also home to the acclaimed Picasso museum. Another advantage is being located right next to Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can get a break from the narrow streets of the old town. Born is right in the centre of Barcelona and as a result it provides a well-placed and characterful base from which to explore the rest of the city.

I would be more than happy to book with Victor again when back to the city. There was a problem with the apartment that we had booked but Victor and Marcela made sure to get us an apartment in the area that we wanted. Ended up in a better place and they could not have been any more helpful throughout. The apartment we had was well furnished, clean and a delight to stay in. We were extremely happy with the whole experience and would recommend Victor to anyone.
Ursula (5*)May 2013 The apartment was excellent we enjoyed a wonderful sunny roof terrace. It is decorated very nicely and with great taste. Victor gave us a very warm welcome and gave us great tips for restaurants and Baren. The neighborhood is very pleasant. We would come back immediately. Thank you for the hospitality. Ursula and Brigitte Maxim (5*)June 2013 What can I say. Great location, super flat, very nice owner as well as 'receptionist' Marcela. Although the apartment looks a little bigger than it is speed but in reality it is very clean and has everything you need. The computer with internet and TV is also a big plus if it can be ausgteauscht happy times against a neures model :) We would come back! Apartment is highly recommended! PS: To keep in mind there is that one has a whopping 91 steps to walk up ;-) Kurt We have been extremely pleased with the apartment, which is very central in Barcelona and pretty much within walking distance to all attractions.

Area: Santa Caterina-BORN- Urquinaona subway

The Born area is opposite the Gothic, separated by the Via Laietana, and next to the Barceloneta, a short walk from the main beaches of the city.

Since the 80s the Born has become one of the most artistic and flamboyant city, becoming arguably the most fashionable area of Old Town. The monuments of this district are innumerable - opulent modernism Palau de la Música, the Mercat de Santa Caterina contemporary and gothic splendor of the church of Santa Maria del Mar - and are all within a few minutes walk. Another key attraction of the area is the Picasso Museum exalted. A great advantage is to be located next to the Parc de la Ciutadella, where you can relax so much historic center alleyway. El Born is right in the center of Barcelona and therefore will provide a basis expressive and well placed for exploring the rest of the city.

And among all these places of interest, one will enjoy the narrow streets lost iran will discover lovely shops, squares with terraces, or any corner where you get a great picture. And of course the huge gastronomic offer and bars, where to dine or enjoy a delicious Mojito.

The Born adjoins the Barceloneta old fishermen district and today posedora of the best beaches in the city. A lovely 25-minute walk from my house, across the harbor and this particular neighborhood, will take you to the beach of Barceloneta. Where you can swim from April until almost November. Thanks to the warm climate of our city.

No doubt, the best things of my 2 apartments are the unbeatable location and their terraces. It is really something. It gives you happyness when you are there. Choosing the 'GREEN PENTHOUSE BORN' you will enjoy a 360ª panoramic view of Barcelona center and even farther. From there you can see the amazing Sagrada Familia, the Gotic cathedral, Santa Maria del Mar church, Tibidabo montain, Montjuic montain, Twin Towers, Agbar building, etc... THE WHOLE CITY. In both apartments, it's a great plus enjoying the sun during the day or the stars over your head at dinner time . To have breakfast there is the best way to start knowing the city. At the end of the day, there is no better place to rest!! I love to keep it as nice as possible because it really give me happyness. You will not believe how quiet are both terraces at night... making you feel as you where in some little town of the countryside. Choosing 'THE TRAFALGAR PENTHOUSE' you wiil be abble to see how is a tipical 'patio' of a Eixample cuarter. And you will enjoy a lift. jeje
