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.

Centrally located flat!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the flat for three days. Eric promptly resolved a short-lived air conditioning issue. The flat is very comfortablly furnished. The kitchen is well equipped and the patio was wonderful with a very large awning to provide shade. I highly recommend Eric's flat.

Great spacious apartment in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we hoped it would be. It was an easy walk to El Born, Las Ramblas and some of Gaudi's buildings. It was well equipped and comfortable with an organic grocery store right next door and all the amenities you need on vacation. I highly recommend staying here!

Very nice property in excellent location

  • 5 of 5

The Perfect Escape was as advertised. Very updated 2 bedroom, 2 bath apartment with nice outdoor deck and well stocked kitchen. The wifi was very good and consistent and the washer/dryer worked well. The main bedroom in the back was very quiet and perfect for extended sleeping.

The apartment is on the first floor up which made it very easy to use the stairs, though there is a lift which is handy when taking luggage up or down. It is located in an excellent area surrounded by restaurants and supermarkets including an organic market next door. The metro is only a few minutes walk from the apartment and taxis are available day and night. The old city and most of the primary attractions are within walking distance but out of the tourist area. A very good value for an extended stay.

Very clean and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We just stayed in this apartment, and we are a family of five. It was very clean and spacious with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. The kitchen and eating area plus the terrace was wonderful for eat in breakfasts! The location was quiet but still close to most points of interest. Eric is an accommodating and friendly host, giving us tips plus he has a written summary of places to eat at and visit.

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!
