About This Listing
This is a very spacious apartment, very elegantly decorated, with floors, doors, windows and wooden beams. Very cozy and warm is decorated in a Mediterranean style and is perfect for 4 or 5 people.
Large apartment of 80 m2 located next to Carme street in Barcelona in the very heart of the historic centre of the city. Sunny and comfortable, this flat is provided with wooden floors and beams. This decoration, by preserving the original materials of the apartment, gives it a very warm atmosphere and charm. The windows are facing south, which allows the apartment to be sunny all day. The living room is spacious and is provided with a balcony which faces a square where a small and pretty romanesque church stands since middle ages.
The main room is a double bedroom, which is also very spacious and suuny; it has as well a small balcony and a wardrobe of period. The kitchen is the most original place of the apartment: open to the living room, it is decorated with ceramic in Mediterranean style and local marble. The second room has two or three beds (in case of need) and its respective wardrobe.
It has WIFI , so you will be able to contact family and friends explaining to the experiences you are having in this wonderful city .
A 5 -minute walk from Plaça Catalunya. Close to all major attractions of the historic center and the Cathedral , Palau de la Música, the Gotic area , Church of Santa Maria del Mar, the Picasso Museum , Columbus monument , etc. Near Port Vell and Maremagnum Shopping Centre . Lively area with many restaurants , theaters , cinemas , bars and pubs.
It is the best place to walk to the most emblematic places of the city.
I advise you to go walking to most places to enjoy the atmosphere of the streets and getting lost in the streets, people watching and knowing your corner .
Another interesting thing is to rent a bike, lets see more parts of the city in a calm and relaxed way.
Walking distance to the beach and the area of Barceloneta, where you can find the best fish restaurants, and try the best rice " arrossejats " and Catalan dishes.
An ideal opportunity to walk the streets and approach all these attractions , walking and being surprised at every turn by the various highlights of this area of the city.
It is close to the best bars and restaurants of the city center , however , is located in a small quiet street .
Interaction with Guests
I'm from Barcelona lifetime, I know every nook and charming places of the city, so don't hesitate and ask me :-))
I'm your diposición for any question or problem, I always find me in my phone, also live very close in 5 minutes so I'm there :-))
The Raval quarter is located between the left side of the Eixample and the Gótico quarters. It is one of the quarters with more changes in the last years, going from a very popular neighbourhood to a dynamic area where restorers, designers, architects and artists have chosen it a place to settle, making the quarter one of the most dynamic, trendy and multi-ethnical ones of the city, yet without losing its popular charm.
The Museum of Contemporary Art (MACBA), the Centre of Contemporary Culture (CCCB), and the Universities have eased the change of a marginal area to a cosmopolitan one, becoming a reference for all the city.
In the Raval the old and the modern blend naturally; for this we can see how the neighbourhood enjoys all type of facilities, from the most modern ones to the lifelong stores –the great markets of the Boquería or Sant Antoni. Therefore, the traditional, the modern, and the alternative coexist in this quarter in permanent evolution.
We must also point out the Rambla del Raval, a spacious and sunny place where every Saturday a handicraft fare takes place.
Only 5 minutes from the metro station Liceu, Sant Antoni and 5 minutes from Plaça Catalunya.
In Plaza Catalunya is the Aerobus, the bus to the airport!
We would ask that you please do not smoke inside the house, please use the balcony.
We are aware that things can break, glassware and crockery particularly simple and not charge you for replaceable items.
Please respect the rest of neighbors with regard to noise at night. Enjoy the peace and the comforts of home - but please, can not have parties.
Towels are provided for use in the apartment is not allowed to take them out of the house. If you are planning to go to the beach or pool, bring your own towels. Please take your trash and do not leave dirty dishes.
Manels apartment was as described & was a great base for our weekend stay. Very convenient location & there is a lovely bar/restaurant 'marmalade" & bakery "Audrey's " close to apartment. The bathroom is a little small but was sufficient for our needs. Manel very helpful many thanks grace
Manel was very welcoming and responsive and accommodated our early arrival for check-in. The location is excellent, close to Ramblas, metro stops, and numerous shops and restaurants. The apartment itself was very clean, spacious, and had everything you'd need for a comfortable stay. I'd recommend Manel and his apartment for anyone visiting Barcelona.
Logement pratiquement conforme au descriptif. Un peu bruyant surtout quand le Barca gagne un match!
Appartement bien placé dans lequel il y a ce qu'il faut pour une famille avec enfants en bas âge.
Concernant l'état général de propreté, il ne faut pas être maniaque!
excellent accueil, simple, et Manel parle super bien français !, l'appartement à cette période de l'année est très agréable, avec du soleil dans le salon l'après midi, et de la fraicheur.
l'appart est calme malgré sa situation dans le plein centre, avec un petit parc pour les enfants juste en dessous. globalement appartement et hote très chaleureux !
Manel è molto disponibile e gentile. L'appartamento è comodo, spazioso, pulito e silenzioso. Il bagno è un po' piccolo. Nel palazzo c'è l'ascensore. E' nel centro di Barcellona a 10 minuti a piedi dalla Rambla e vicino alla Boqueria. Nei dintorni ci sono locali per la colazione e per la cena oppure negozi dove acquistare vari generi alimentari.
The appartment was very comfortable and is very nicely done up. Especially the site of the flat near the La Rambla was fantastic. There´s really nothing to complain about the appartment.
Manel was a very good host. The communication with Manel was also very good. He is really kind and gives all information you need in a city you don´t know.
We had a pleasant stay and can absolutely recommend the appartment!
Très bon accueil. Appartement idéal pour passer quelques jours à Barcelone entre amis

About the Host, Manel
Manel and I'm born and live in Barcelona with my partner and my two daughters. I speak english, french, italian, catalan and spanish.
I like Barcelona, I realize that the locals are very lucky: we can walk, cycle, swim in the sea, enjoy terraces, Art rooms, old warehouses, plazas and streets filled centenarians living throughout the year.
I, at least, I do and I can recommend excursions, Itineriaries, special sites (for normal ...) that you will like a lot.
I also like to sing and play guitar, in fact I know wonderful places to sing and enjoy :-))) I can also recommend tours around Barcelona: Collserola, Montjuic, Forum .... you only have to come and carried away ....Adeuuuu!
Manel et je suis né et vit à Barcelone avec mon conjoint et mes deux filles.
J'aime Barcelone, je me rends compte que les habitants sont très chanceux: nous pouvons marcher, faire du vélo, nager dans la mer, profiter des terrasses, des salles d'art, de vieux entrepôts, des places et des rues centenaires vivant tout au long de l'année remplis.
Moi, du moins, je fais et je peux recommander des excursions, Itineriaries, des sites spéciaux (pour la normale ...) que vous voulez beaucoup.
J'aime aussi chanter et jouer de la guitare, en fait, je sais endroits merveilleux pour chanter et profiter :-))) Je peux aussi vous recommander des visites autour de Barcelone: Collserola, Montjuic, Forum .... il suffit de venir et emporter .... Adeuuuu!
