Barcelona’s extensive Eixample district brings together a large number of modernista buildings of great architectural value. However, it is the central part which showcases most of the buildings designed in this style. Known as the Quadrat d’Or (Golden Square), it is the place where Barcelona’s moneyed classes came to live in the flats designed by the leading architects of the day, such as Gaudí.
You will find something to suit every taste in this area, design and fashion shops, relaxing parks and a range of bars and cafes to have your morning coffee in. There are also a good number of restaurants, bars and discos for those looking for some nightlife Barcelona is so famous for.
It can be difficult to resist the temptation to stop and try out some the local pastries & coffees, drinks & tapas or have dinner in some of the most fashionable restaurants in Barcelona. Towards the bottom of L´Eixample it meets with Plaza Catalunya and the beginning of the Gothic Quarter.
The Eixample is one of the prettiest and safest districts of Barcelona. Places of interest not to miss: Plaza Catalunya, Passeig de Gracia with those beautiful Antonio Gaudi’s buildings such as La Pedrera and La Casa Battló and Plaza España that has a fountain display with lights and music in the evening time.

Loved it! Great location and clean.
We loved our stay in Barcelona and the condo was perfect! It was a great location , clean and spacious for 2 people. We really enjoyed having the roof top patio as well. Everything turned out great. Owners very accommodating and available!
a beautiful apartment, in a historic building, in a centrally located, but quiet, neighborhood!
as a seasoned traveler, you must always remember that minor things (when tired), like extra steps to/from the elevator, mean nothing to the overall experience!
I stayed in Philippe's apt 3 days at the beginning of my trip & 3 days at the end. the apt was clean & comfortable & nicely decorated. Philippe is a gracious host; he informed me there was an issue with the hot water heater, and took care of it immediately! His assistant Jean, was just delightful! She greeted me at the door upon both arrivals & helped me with my luggage; she also was extremely helpful with internet logistics! When I returned to the apt at the end of my stay in Barcelona, I felt like I was going "home"! I would absolutely recommend this apt & I would stay there again!...
...an added bonus is the Reserva Iberica shop nearby...I would stay here again just for their amazing sandwich & the Cacao Sampaka shop/cafe for their churros y chocolate!!
This location was very central, the apartment was well maintained and comfortable, the penthouse provided a nice view and the owner was especially kind and helpful! Thank you!
Great location. Great flat!
Philippe is an excellent host. The penthouse is well equipped and in a great area.
Lovely property; great location!
Lovely property with a great location! We especially enjoyed the apartment’s library area and roof terrace. The only drawback is for elderly people who may have trouble with stairs. Otherwise, many great restaurants, fine shops, historical and tourist sights are within easy walking distance. The owner is both charming and accommodating.
Fun time in funky, well located apartment!
Great location - quite funky and fun to stay in. Enjoyed the sitting room overlooking outside patio. Apartment was at back and top floor and very quiet, Stairs/elevator was challenging; however we managed and had fun. Apartment was well stocked with necessities and was very clean. Owner, Phillipe, was a delight! He met us early and took a lot of time explaining things. Answered all our questions about sightseeing, made dinner reservations for us and confirmed a taxi to airport. Again, location was wonderful and we had a great stay in beautiful Barcelona!
