WELCOME TO OUR 3 BEDROOM APARTMENT IN EL BORN IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER OF BARCELONA:

This three bedroom flat is located in the central Ciutat Vella district of Barcelona with a unique location across from the recently rebuilt Mercat de Santa Caterina. This market is not only a recent addition to the body of architectural landmarks in the city, but a place to sample top quality local produce. The flat is on the corner of a building with a protected façade as an important part of architectural history.

This apartment has three separated bedrooms with balconies / windows (one double bedroom and the other 2 bedrooms with 2 single beds each that can be together or separated). There is air conditioning and central heating in all the bedrooms and in the living-room. All the balconies are completely isolated with double glass.

The quality of the accommodation and the impecable personalized service are the advantages that make this property perfect for clients looking for an exceptional holiday right in the historical center of Barcelona.

Parking: there are several parkings nearby. Please let us know if you are coming by car to inform you about parking facilities. It's important to know if you are going to use your car or not during your stay in order to give you an accurate information of the most suitable and economical parking.

THE APARTMENT IS LOCATED IN EL BORN AREA IN THE HISTORICAL CENTER:

El Born has grown into being one of the most fashionable places in the city.

El Born isn't just about the nightlife, there is plenty of culture to be had as well. It can be seen that Calle Montcada was also a medieval street, which is now home to the Picasso museum and the Textile Museum which has a great little café with a terrace attached to it. The textile museum is located here because in Born's early days it was home to the textile guilds of Barcelona. There is also a beautiful cathedral which you can wander around in, sometimes even when there is a wedding going on!

Nowadays people are attracted to El Born for the shopping which consists of some beautiful but pricey boutiques and shoe shops which are great to find that one-off piece.

El Born is sandwiched between Via Laietana and Barceloneta and is served by the metro stops Barceloneta and Jaume 1 which are on the same yellow line. Las Ramblas and the very centre of the city are a pleasant 10 minute walk away.

The beach is also just a 10 minute walk away so you can have both a beach holiday and a city break in one. Plus you are quite close to the Parc Ciutadella which is a relaxing place to sit in the afternoon and watch the hippies play their bongos. The Barcelona zoo is also located in Parc Ciutadella.

As you can see El Born is perfect for families as well as tourists. Noise could sometimes be a problem depending on where you are but it's not as bad as in the very centre of town. It is a picturesque and cultural part of the city with a vibrant café culture and bar scene.

The location is just a short walk from the fashionable El Born area including one of the most exciting tourist attractions in the city: the Museu Picasso and the Palau de la Música Catalana, a leading concert hall - World Heritage Site by UNESCO -. Walking to the Barri Gotic is a quick affair and the famous street of Las Ramblas is just 10 min. away on foot. Most of the city's main attractions (including the Gaudí works of Palau Guell, Casa Batlló, Casa Milá and La Sagrada Familia) and relaxing beaches are within walking distance or a short subway ride away.

Minimum capacity 2/3 people. Regular capacity 4/5 people. Maximum capacity for 5/6 people.

Cleaning fee (apartment, linen and towels). We provide sheets and towels.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are Elizabeth and Jacob. We speak English, French, Spanish and Catalan. We have always enjoyed meeting people from all over the world and that's why a few years ago we started offering our apartment to people who want to come to Barcelona to have a nice experience. We like what we do!!! :) *I and my husband Jacob are the real owners of the apartment. We are not an agency or representatives of the owners. Then, we are involved and we take care directly with our guests in case of any need or help. *Our apartment is located in a nice area in El Born in the historical center. It’s not easy to find a quiet place in the middle of everywhere (Aquarium, Chocolate Museum, Picasso Museum, etc.). *Our apartment is located in a corner of a building which means there is a lot of natural light. It has 4 exterior balconies. *We accept credit card except the cleaning fee. I mean we accept credit card for sure. No surprise on arrival. *Our apartment is a legal holiday apartment with license from the Government of Catalunya.

Why the Owner Chose Sant Pere - Santa Caterina i la Ribera, Barcelona, Barcelona, Spain:
We bought this property because we love Barcelona. We have this property here in 'El Born' in Barcelona city center because it's a nice place to stay for a few days as it's calm and comfortable and also it's a great point from where you can have access to the main attractions.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
From our property, which is located right next to the prestigious 'Mercat de Santa Caterina', you can experience living in the origin of Barcelona. As it's in the corner of a building there is a lot of natural light. Also, there are no words to explain the feeling of relaxing in this great apartment. Then, you can take a real Spanish Siesta.
