About this listing
A fantastic modern apartment with communal swimming pool in the cool area of Poble Nou. Two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a lovely sunny terrace plus great attention to detail along with quality bed and bath linen make for a real luxury experience.
Poblenou enjoys an enviable location; close to the city centre for fast easy and convenient access but far enough away to retain its village-like feel. With three of Barcelona’s beaches it’s a definite contender for a base to stay in Barcelona.
Our apartment is centrally positioned on the top floor of one of Poblenou's well-designed modern residential buildings and provides a great opportunity to stay in a white, light filled penthouse apartment in this newly popular district of Barcelona.
This apartment has a simple symmetrical plan and a modern interior, with wood, white walls and terrazzo flooring. The large open living space has floor to ceiling glazed sliding doors which lead directly onto a private terrace. The central high level terrace is the perfect spot for breakfast lunch or dinner and it faces directly onto the main element of the architects plan - a beautifully maintained secluded interior garden square with children's play area, paddling pool and 18 metre swimming pool.
There are two bedrooms, two en-suite bathrooms, a lounge and a separate kitchen. The bedrooms have 150 and 135 cm double beds and there are two 110 cm wide very comfortable click down sofa beds in the lounge. Most of the bed linen and towels are high thread count, high quality luxurious Egyptian cotton from john Lewis with equally luxurious pillows.
This large apartment is equipped with everything you might need for a fabulous stay in Barcelona and has air conditioning, central heating, free Wi-Fi and free landline national phone calls and incoming calls to help reduce your mobile roaming charges. The apartment has step free access from the street to the apartment and is served by two lifts. There is a day time concierge and public car parking is nearby so this apartment not only provides easy practical access for anyone using a wheelchair or a child's buggy but it also a great place to be once you are inside.
The apartment is both very quiet and very light and is located right next to the delightful tree lined Rambla del Poblenou which is filled with great local shops, cafes, restaurants, and is the heart and social hub of the area…. and best of all, a pleasant stroll down this charming wide walkway brings you directly to one of the city's best sandy beaches. Within a few minutes’ walk you will also find a public sports centre with a well-equipped gym, classes, swimming pools, low cost bike hire, and several supermarkets.
Poblenou has many green spaces a laid back sunny atmosphere and of course the Mediterranean Sea. The area is perfect for anyone who wants a calm local and charming, neighbourhood experience, be close to the beach and yet have quick easy access to the frenzy of the city centre.
Linen, towels, soap and shampoo are prepared before your arrival.

Very nice apartment. Clean, bright and awesome with penthouse terrasse and pool. Location is good for families with easy nabourhood and beach close by.
Ruim en proper (website hidden) buiten de stad, maar met om de hoek een hele reeks leuke restaurantjes: de Ramblas maar in een rustige versie. Veilige beurt. Drie blokken verwijderd van de metro. Mooi en goed onderhouden zwembad met bewaking. Stipte aanwezigheid bij in- en uitchecken. Prima wifi en airco.
Het beheer is in handen van een professioneel bureau. De eigenaars krijg je niet te zien.
Vi kontaktade Eduardo när vi landat så att han kunde möta upp för att lämna över nycklarna till lägenheten. Han visade oss runt och informerade och tipsade oss om olika saker.
Vi trivdes alldeles utmärkt i lägenheten som var bra utrustad. Balkongen utnyttjade vi flitigt och det var skönt att ha tillgång till pool. Vi var 4 vuxna personer som bodde i lägenheten och därför var det lyxigt att ha tillgång till 2 badrum. Omgivningarna var lugna och trivsamma med bageri, frukt- o grönsaksaffärer och flera restauranger. Det tog ca 20 minuter att gå ner till havet på "lilla" Ramblan så det gjorde vi varje dag. Fantastiska bad och fin strand.
Vi tog tunnelbana för att åka in till centrala stan och det fungerade utan problem.
Vi bodde tre nätter i Erics lägenhet. Den ligger i ett trevligt och lugnt område precis bredvid Rambla Poublenou med många affärer och nära till metron. Lägenheten var fin och välutrustad och servicen bra. Det var härligt med ett dopp i poolen efter en lång dag på stan...
Eric was in contact several times about our upcoming stay and we found it easy to reach him via email. The apartment was exactly what we expected - clean, roomy, and convenient. We had everything we needed. Be aware that there is a drying rack on the balcony for clothes. We didn't see it until our last day and it came in handy. We would definitely stay again.
A fantastic location which is great for families. It has great transport links to the city with all the amenities you could ask for within walking distance. The apartment was well equipped and pool area is exceptional.
