About Eric Mills

Born and raised in San Francisco, I have been living in Barcelona for the last 15 years, where I work as a writer for a small jazz record label. My wife Floriana is an architect from Italy. We have a four-year old daughter Luna who is our pride and joy. Despite coming from different places, Barcelona has really become home for us.

Eric Mills purchased this apartment in 2013

Why Eric Mills chose Barcelona

I've only owned this apartment for a short time. I knew that I wanted to get a place near the Arco de Triunfo, as I've fallen in love with the openness of the street Paseo San Juan and its proximity to so many of my favorite places. I had been searching in this area until I finally found this fabulous apartment!

What makes this apartment unique

The flat is both modern and minimalist, yet warm and cozy. The huge terrace, tastefully designed rooms and high beautiful ceilings all combine to make this an extremely delightful and relaxing place for a romantic or family-oriented get away.

This apartment is located only 3 blocks away from the Arco de Triunfo and Barcelona's beautiful Ciutadella Park (with the zoo) and only a 10-minute walk to the charming Born neighborhood in the Gothic quarter, and the very center of the city at Plaza de Cataluña and Las Ramblas. It is also close to two different metro stops, Barcelona's primary bus station and walking distance from the Sagrada Familia and Hospital San Pau, as well as Gaudi's lovely buildings on Paseo de Gracia: La Pedrera and the Casa Batlló.

In addition, there are numerous outstanding restaurants within a short walking distance (I will provide you with a list). Quiet yet centrally located, the area is perfect for a relaxing and exciting get-away!

We had a wonderful time in Barcelona. The flat is clean, large and in a wonderful location. We enjoyed our time and would stay here again.

Thanks for all your hospitality.

An oasis in the heart of Barcelona

  • 5 of 5

I booked this because of the open garden, a rare gem, in a city of apartments and I was not disappointed.

The bedrooms had limited light but this was more than made up for by the open living/dining areas and kitchen. The garden was well used by our kids and it even had an outdoor shower. It was great to sit back and have drinks and some finger food in late afternoons.

The location was supreme, located on a quiet street right around the corner of a Main Street with ample restaurants and grocery stores.

Eric is very attentive and, even though he was away on vacation, he had a very good friend meet us. Cinzia, a naturalpath and smart and witty woman, showed us around and made sure we were completely comfortable. Eric is extremely organized and I appreciate his attention to detail.

Great location!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in Eric"s loft during our visit to Barcelona. The location was perfect for walking to several top tourist destinations and the neighborhood felt safe. The apartment itself was well-furnished and clean. It was nice to have air conditioning and laundry facilities! The reservation, check in and check out process was easy and we appreciated the assistance in having a prearranged taxi pickup upon leaving Barcelona.

Good location and amenities; needs some maintenance.

  • 4 of 5

The positives: great location, near the center but away from the crowds and noise, with ample food shops within a few feet and good walking/bus/metro connections within a few yards. In general, very clean, with a well equipped kitchen. The walls are a tad thin but it is an apartment building and the apt is by and large pretty quiet. A nice rear patio for sitting, with a washer/dryer combo in a small structure at the back, and clotheslines for hanging clothes. A spacious dining/living room, nice for spreading out family meals or for setting up the computer. Excellent wireless connections. Good air conditioning. Near parks and the zoo. Apt is up only one level so no need to wait for the lift unless you have heavy loads.

Negatives: we were two couples. We engaged the place because it has two bedrooms and two baths, but the second bedroom and bath are too small for two adults, and have no drawers or closets. It's a better place for two adults and one child. The sheets were old and stained, and when I stripped the bed I saw that the mattress cover was covered in hair. The bedrooms have no windows, which can be nice for getting away from the hot summer sun but they are really pitch black. A hall nightlight would be an asset. There are some maintenance issues: In the kitchen, the hot water kettle only worked if the plug was held into the socket manually. The place needs every lamp it can get, but at least one livingroom lamp had no bulb. At least one toilet seat was coming loose. These are minor issues, all solvable through better owner oversight. All in all we had a great time in Barcelona and we all appreciated having a good place to come home to in the evening, where we could slice up veges, fruits, and cheeses and share a bottle of wine.

Stunning property in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very close to the Arc de Triumph and an easy walk to many tourist areas. The unit was very large with a huge patio. Fully equipped kitchen with an organic market next door and other grocery stores close by. Two bathrooms.

Unit had a washing machine and a dryer which is quite unusual.

Unit was very quiet.

The awning over the patio was broken but we still used the outdoor space.

The photos accurately represent the place.

Eric was very agreeable and easy to work with.
