About the Property
At the Junction of El Born, the Beach & Port Vell, a peerless city location
*** AN ADDITIONAL 35% (FROM THE ALREADY REDUCED PRICE) WILL BE TAKEN OFF YOUR RENTAL DATES FOR THE MONTHS OF DECEMBER THROUGH FEBRUARY AFTER YOU SUBMIT AN INQUIRY ***
( Please Note: New Year's Week is excluded from the rate reduction. )
Cabina de l'Aviador, El Born, your home away from home, is a fully air-conditioned apartment with all the modern comforts of a brand-new building with elevators, 24/7 fully staffed and CCTV plus automated security systems, equipped with trendy furniture, two bathrooms with heated european towel rails, and a spacious kitchen with all amenities including vitro ceramic cooktops, automatic dishwasher, and clothes washer and dryer. (Unlike most rentals in the city, that neglect to mention that they are located on upper floors of buildings without elevators, our property has multiple lifts! :-) ) There is a separate dining area to enjoy shared meals and a living-room with abundant light reflecting from the sunny park across the street.
Located just off the seafront, only a five minute walk from the El Born and El Gótic in one direction and Barcelona's beach in the opposite direction. (The property is within easy walking distance of the city's and municipality's beaches, which led to Barcelona being crowned the Number One Beach City in the World 2013 - 2014 by National Geographic Magazine.) The surroundings of this apartment are populated by so many top restaurants, tapas bars, pastry and trendy clothes shops that it is next to impossible to keep count! A short stroll takes you to the Port Vell--Barcelona's beautiful old port, lined with eateries and museums, and location of Barcelona's aquarium and the Marenostrum shopping and entertainment complex. A ten minute walk in the other direction will bring you to stunningly glamorous Ciutadella Park. Barcelona’s original urban “green lung”, it is no ordinary park. In 1869, the demolition of its military citadel, established a century earlier by Philip V, led to the highly significant building boom that followed in that area of the city. The Barcelona Zoo has stood on the other side of the park since 1892. It also has big water displays, including an impressively beautiful fountain and waterfall, designed by Fontseré (with perhaps some attributions of the young student Antoni Gaudí), a small lake with rental boats, and lots of grassy spaces to lie down and soak up the warm sunshine. A great spot for relaxation, a walk, a row, or to bring the kids to burn off a little energy (theirs not yours! :-) ). As if this were not enough, the world-renowned Las Ramblas strip and La Boqueria Market, and the very center of the city are a pleasant fifteen minute walk away. You can spend days exploring the narrow streets and squares, with Gothic mansions, museums, historic churches, right next to bars and restaurants where you can enjoy the Spanish and Catalonian cuisine while drinking in the sights along with your cool glass of sangria…
***** PLUS, for a limited time, in order to celebrate our new listing on the VRBO/HOMEAWAY site, we are offering one FREE CITY TOUR to our guests to be conducted by one of our local guides. You can chose from any of a number of historic, romantic, Jewish-heritage, and even intrigue-filled ghost walking tour options offered by our experts (fluent in english, spanish, french, serbian, italian and catalan). We will provide information on all the available alternatives at the time of your booking so that you may chose and participate at your leisure after your arrival in Barcelona. The option to book other tours (for an unbeatably low fee) will, of course, be available by request as well. [Please note that the tours do not include the costs of admission to the specific city locations that may charge a fee for the same.] *****
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
