About this listing
Very large and luminous apartment located on Lluna street, in the historic centre of the city. It is part of a typical nineteenth century building very well preserved. It has a fine orientation which makes it especially sunny all the day long. Recently restored, it contains furniture designed deliberately for the apartment. The kitchen is open to the dining room and living room, building up the whole atmosphere with furniture made for the occasion. The stripping wooden beams, the antique doors and floors combined with the furnishing give the apartment a classic and at the same time cosmopolitan look.
All the apartment is exterior with balconies in all rooms. The main bedroom has a double bed with a large window and a wide balcony shared with the living room. The other bedroom has two single beds with its wardrobe and a balcony. The bathroom is particularly spacious, with a large bath tub and two wash basins. The toilet is in a separate room.
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.
A fantastic apartment. Everything as described and in a fascinating part of barcelona. Manel was great,very accommodating with arrival and departure times. Whilst it's bri it is not suitable for smaller children as it's on the fourth floor with no lifts. No air conditioning which was difficult during the heatwave. Highly recommend this accommodation.
We stayed at Manel's flat for one month. The apartment is very large and comfortable. We met a friend of Manel's to receive the keys- we had no contact with the landlord otherwise. They were very accommodating to our arrival and departure arrangements. The apartment is well furnished and stylish. The apartment is located in a great area even though El Raval is known to be a little rough. The apartment is quite noisy during the day from nearby construction and street noise, however the nighttime hours were very quiet and relaxing.
We spent great new years eve holidays at Manel flat. It is very well located and the appartment offers everything we needed. Manel is very nice and flexible. We totally recommend this place!
The apartment was beautiful, comfortable, with all necessary amenities, great shower, always hot water, well-stocked kitchen, comfy beds, everything :) Also the location is very good, close to public transportation, supermarkets, and lots of bars and restaurants. We had a really nice time and Manel was great!
The apartment is located in the heart of Barcelona. It is very big and full of light! The kitchen is simple and has all it needs. Also, Manel is very friendly and helpful! Would recommend!
The apartment was so nice. Great old spanish style, all the kitchen equipment you need is there and you got a nice modern bathroom. We were surprised because on the pictures in the internet was an older bathroom.
Manel was a great host! Friendly and totally open minded :)
We will come back if any possible.
un posto magnifico, comodo, completo di tutto e facilmente raggiungibile con i mezzi, il centro è a due passi e Manel è decisamente disponibile e cordiale.
Lo consiglio a tutti

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!

Adeuuu!!
Sóc en Manel i he nascut i visc a Barcelona amb la meva parella i dos filles.

També m'agrada molt cantar i tocar la guitarra, de fet conec llocs meravellosos per cantar i gaudir :-))) També us puc recomanar excursions pels voltants de Barcelona: Collserola, Montjuïc, Fòrum .... només heu de venir i deixar-vos portar ....
