About the Property

Luxury Spacious 3 Bedroom Apartment. 2 Baths, (Sleeps 5-6)

UNBEATABLE GOTHIC QUARTER LOCATION

Luxury 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'.

Beautifully renovated, fully air-conditioned apartment 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 - 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 balcony. Large and comfortable living/dining room with original works of art, satellite TV, WIFI and iPod/iPhone/iPad dock; fully equipped kitchen, central air conditioning throughout, central heating, two bathrooms, washer and dryer.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: Pleased to meet you! We love the location of our 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 El Barri Gòtic, Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain:
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 we chose an apartment that 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.
