The Eixample was designed as a grid by architect Cerdà . It extended from the Plaza Catalunya , in the top of Ciutat Vella , through pastures and fields to the neighboring villages of Sarria and Sant Gervasi and attention in the late 1960s , as Barcelona was expanding beyond the original wall the old town. This construction coincided with the explosion of local wealth , which led to many local families commissioning housing construction modernist architects such as Antoni Gaudí , resulting today in the majestic buildings scattered throughout the Eixample .
Currently , many people consider the Eixample as the true heart of Barcelona, and is one of the most desirable locations to buy a property in Barcelona.

The place is convinent and close to everything. Good to share with my whole family
We loved this house in Barcelona. The location is excellent, and the pedestrian street it is on is really quaint. The games room in the basement was a huge hit with the children, they would have been happy to stay there all weekend. The roof terrace is really pretty and has a wonderful view down the street. Ewa was there to meet us and showed us round the house. She had put up a single bed in the living room for my son which was much appreciated. Unfortunately the home cinema wasn't working and being a bank holiday she had been unable to get it fixed. It was a pity but these things happen. We had plenty of other stuff to keep us happy. The rooms are large and immaculately clean. Breakfast cooked by Joy was a really great way to start the day. She varied the menu and her quiche was especially delicious.
Everything about this house was perfect! The location is amazing and the house is really incredible, even better than what we had expected! The hosts were very welcoming and we were very well looked after, the rooms and bathrooms were cleaned every day and we were offered an amazing cooked breakfast each morning! I would definitely recommend this place to everyone, it's really a magical find in Barcelona!
The house is situated on the most beautiful street in Barcelona. It is a rustic retreat from the bustle of the city- a real taste of suburbia right in the heart of it all. It is a clean and homely place to stay. My only regret was that we did not stay longer to make use of all of the fantastic facilities like the games room, the home cinema screen, the jacuzzi bath and the gorgeous roof terrace. It was a real treat waking up to a cooked breakfast each morning and nothing was too much trouble for Ewa and her housekeeping team. We were a group of 10 girls with an action packed weekend. The bathrooms and bedrooms were all decorated to a high standard and were a perfect size to litter with all of our clothes and cosmetics, and still left us with space to walk about! We were able to get a quiet and comfortable night's sleep due to feeling so safe in what is a very private and secure street.
I would recommend this to anyone wanting to be close to shopping and transport links. It was a fabulous place for a party and offered that extra touch of class and luxury to our weekend! Thankyou!!
I would recommend this stunning accommodation to anyone, my friends and I were so pleased with the house and the location was perfect. The house was beautiful and so well looked after! Ewa was incredibly helpful and helped me before and during to show my bride and hens a video with the amazing projector! Each room had its own warm feel, a home from home. The breakfast from Joy in the morning was an added extra. I would come back to this house in an instant even if there were less people staying as it was so perfect for a trip to Barcelona.
There are no words for how amazing the experience with Pau, Clara, and Ewa was. First, the house - THE HOUSE. There is no photo trickery with the images, it really IS this beautiful. It's comfortable, spacious, peaceful, quiet, and located in a phenomenal neighborhood. The bedrooms are wonderful, there is a ton of closet space, the living areas are gorgeous, and the roof is breathtaking. Let me cut to the chase right now : if you're even thinking about staying here, stop reading this review and just book now. NOW! We were in Barcelona for a week and it felt like being at home.
A few notes:
1. Joy is wonderful. She's a great cook, and she's a sweetheart.
2. Practice using the keys during the initial walkthrough! They're different from US keys, and we would have struggled mightily to figure them out if we hadn't been shown how. The front door was especially tricky, but once we got it, no big deal.
3. If you want to fill the jacuzzi tub, budget about thirty minutes to fill it. It took longer than we thought, but it was well worth it.
I could go on and on and on about how wonderful this home is, how perfect the street, how phenomenal the neighborhood, how wonderful the owners are, and how delightful Joy is, but you should just book this house now and learn for yourself. You won't regret it - we surely didn't, and I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

About the Host, Pau, Clara & Ewa
We were born in Barcelona and we have been lucky to live in this beautiful city all our life. We are a couple with children that love meeting people from all around the world. We love food and cooking, traveling... we enjoy sharing experiences with people and help you with everything you could need in Barcelona.
We only started hosting on Airbnb a little more than a year ago and the experience has been amazing. Its great to have the opportunity to meet new people every week and help them have a perfect stay. It has been an incredible year!
As we have young children and sometimes it is difficult to manage everything with a baby at home, our friend Ewa is giving us a hand! She is from Poland and has been living in Barcelona for many years, so she is also happy to meet a lot of people from all around the world and give you some tips about our great city!
