About Kay Davidson
Hello there! The first thing I should probably tell you is that I came to Spain on holiday for 2 weeks in 1988 and stayed! I guess the sun, the cuisine, the culture and outdoor lifestyle all had something to do with it. The fact is I’ve never stopped enjoying the things I love here. I moved from Valencia to Barcelona in 2000 and have worked throughout that time as a teacher and translator as well as a property manager now too of course! My life is busy and diverse and also involves making regular trips back to Scotland, where I was born. I feel really lucky to live in such beautiful places - I love the contrast between the two. Nevertheless, be warned! If my own experience is anything to go by and you do decide to come here on holiday, you may end up staying a bit longer than you bargained for!!
Why Kay Davidson chose El Born
Quite simply – it was love at first sight. The Born area of the city centre is utterly magical and this was the first and last apartment I looked at. I often walk through the gorgeous winding streets and alleyways surrounding the apartment with their myriad boutiques and terrace cafés bathed in sunlight before heading back to the apartment and sitting in the peace and quiet of the living room, soaking up the beauty of it all and thinking - yes - this is the essence of the place I love. The Born has become even more charming and beautiful since I bought the apartment in 2003 and if I could come back to Barcelona now and see it all again as if it were the first time, it’s still this apartment in this part of town I would hope to find.
What makes this Apartment unique
Firstly I would say it's the location. It’s right in the middle of the most historic, beautiful and happening area of the city with the benefit of being nestled in a quiet pedestrian-only side street, which is just a 15 minute walk from the beach. The apartment itself has the perfect contrast, so distinctive to Barcelona, of seamlessly blending old and new; design without compromising on comfort. Having the award-winning Hoffman bakery (best croissants I have ever tasted) just around the corner may also have something to do with it though! Or it might be the proximity to Cal Pep (delicious seafood) or Bar Pla (delicious everything)! Most likely though it's a combination of all of these things and coming in through the front door after a day out, sitting down, kicking my shoes off and relishing that wonderful sensation of feeling totally at home in a foreign land.
