Welcome to my house! This used to be my beloved pad back in my single days. I very much enjoyed living there!
A typically newyorkan style semi-loft space, the property is located in one of the very best areas in Barcelona - at walking distance from the city centre, the city’s main avenue Paseo de Gracia and Gaudi’s famous buildings.
Enchanting and welcoming, the loft is divided in two main areas - a wide sitting/dining room with integrated kitchen on one hand and open space bedroom and bathroom on the other. By the way, you don't want to forget to take a nice relaxing long bath! You know why? The bathroom will surprise you with a fabulous Jacuzzi!
Thick brick walls, high ceilings with fully restored rustic Catalan wooden elements add onto the property that special note of history and character that makes it unique.
The deco is vintage while it benefits of great interior natural light thanks to the exterior balconies on two sides - overlooking Aribau Street.
The furniture varies from vintage items to unique pieces I found in antiques markets and I then personally restored, to a few modern units - all in all giving the place a personal charm!
The flat sleeps up to 4 people thanks to its very comfortable sofa bed. Nevertheless, don't forget that the space is limited and a good degree of friendship is required to share a reduced space!
The flat is fully equipped and you will need to bring but your suitcase to come and enjoy your stay in Barcelona! It has all been sorted for you: bathroom towels, bedding, air/con, central heating, kettle, toaster, washing machine, dryer, etc, are included!
On top of that you will find available some of the basic kitchen ingredients like milk, bread, sugar, salt, olive oil...and....surprise!...a bottle of local wine ...to get you nicely relaxed on your holiday!
I am a mum of two - so should you need any baby equipment - no need to travel it over - I could help with that!
Before arrival I will send you an email with my best recommendations on the local cultural and gastronomical offer. I will be happy to help you through any doubts or questions you may have about your stay - so to make sure that you truly and utterly can concentrate on just enjoying your visit!
A last important note! Aribau Street is well known for its restaurants, bars and liveliness! At times it can be noisy. But no worries! The flat is fully sound proof!
This will be your home, plase treat it as you would treat your home
Also please respect the neighbours and keep noise down to a minimum, there are full of Bars on the street to make fun!
Enjoy a lot your stay!
Very uncomplicated and helpful.
The flat was just as lovely as shown in the photos and Laia was very thoughtful and supportive. we tried several restaurants she recommended on email, they were so nice. absolutely satisfied for 5 nights :)
O apartamento está localizado no que descobri ser o melhor bairro de Barcelona: escelente ofertad e restaurantes, lindas fachadas a descobrir em passeios a pé, proximidade do Paseo de Gracia e das principais praças. Uma boa base para descobrir Barcelona num apartamento restaurado com gosto e com decoração simples.

Hi I'm Laia,
I'm from Barcelona; as were my parents, grandparents and great-grandparents, as far back as I remember! I am a lover of my city, but of the original city of Barcelona, the whole gothic and Eixample area is spectacular!
I worked previously in communication and creativity, but for some time now I decided to use all my creativity in creating furniture and decoration. Restore anything that people do not want as they think it is useless or old or broken, I look for new uses for them so that they don’t die and remain among us.
I am delighted and 100% available to give directions and suggestions about my city! Here I´ll give you the first, advice... watch your bag! Catalans are very good people, but we also have one or two thieves…well, many actually !
I hope you ll feel at home in my apartment and enjoy very much the city!
See you soon!!
