The Space

Your Barcelona stay will be truly memorable in my unique top floor apartment on two levels with private panoramic TERRACES! My home is a peaceful refuge in the midst of the bussling city and I am delighted for others to enjoy it when I am away so long as they are QUIET and respectful.

Ideally situated in the historic centre right between the fashionable BORNE neighborhood and the GOTHIC Quarter. It is in a charming old building which has been recently restored and the apartment interior is reformed in a minimalist style whilst respecting original features such as timber beams and windows.

WARNING: 6th floor walk-up, no elevator! But it is well worth the climb and whenever possible we will help you with your luggage:)

FIRST LEVEL: 25m2, main room with curtained bed nook, double bed and sofa-bed, window with 180 º city views, high ceiling with exposed timber beams, bathroom with shower and a small window.

UPPER LEVEL - Comfortable stairs lead up to the large fully equipped kitchen and dining area open to a TERRACE (10m2) with deck floor, table and chairs, and more amazing views!

TOP TERRACE - A ladder from the first terrace will take you to a private little rooftop with deck floor and seating area and 360º views of the city to the sea and mountains!

NEIGHBORHOOD: In the immediate area you will find plenty of local shops, bars and restaurants. It is just a couple of minutes to the metro (Jaume I) and bus routes, but you will walk to most attractions - eg. one minute to the Picasso Museum or thye Santa Caterina Market, 5 mins to the Cathedral or the Palau de la Musica,, 10 mins to the beach or Las Ramblas.

AVAILABILTY: Be sure to email me before booking to check if it's possible for me!

CHECK-IN/OUT TIMES: Will be as flexible as possible.

  • ...JUST WONDERFUL...!!!
    I stayed at Antoine's place for one week and had the most wonderful time there.
    Since Antoine was travelling the day of my check-in, Kim a friend of him welcomed me and showed me around the apartment. The old building is newly renovated and decorated with a nice sens of style, very cozy and equipted with everything you might possibly need for your stay. I felt at home after the first minute...
    And the view... It's just amazing - I spend a great deal of time on the terracces taking in the phantastic views over the city. Also the location is superb - St. Caterina market around the corner and the small supermarkets opening late hours for grocery shopping, nice tapas bars, restaurants, small shops and sights just a few steps away... A very nice and cozy area and I always flet save there, also walking around alone after dark!
    Antoine also gave some very helpful tips and recomendations for bars and restaurants.
    It was the perfect apartment for my trip to Barcelona and I will definitely be back :)

  • El departamento de Antoine es muy lindo y cómodo, Antoine muy hospitalario.
    Fuimos en primavera y disfrutamos de la terreza con una de las mejores vistas de Barcelona.
    La ubicación es excelente, en el concurrido barrio El Born. Wi fi funciona muy bien, la cocina es muy funcional, el baño pequeño pero aceptable. Lo unico son los 106 escalones que hay que subir y bajar cada vez que quieres entrar o salir, pero realmente vale la pena.

  • We stayed at Antoine's beautiful apartment for a week during Primavera Sound festival, hoping for somewhere we could relax in between some very late nights. We had high hopes from the photos and reviews but the actual experience surpassed even these -- the terraces offer some of the best views in the city.

    Antoine was a charming host, extremely friendly upon our arrival, gave us some great tips for restaurants, and was easily reachable whenever we needed anything. The stairs were a bit of a killer, but, all things considered, they are well worth it. We were very sad to leave! 5 stars all round.

  • My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed the accommodations. The location can't be beat and the views from the rooftop are incredible. Antoine was a great host and gave us many great suggestions for restaurants and attractions. Would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone visiting Barcelona.

  • Antoine is a very likeable guy - helpful and funny.
    We didn't have any trouble or inconvenience. Everything met our expectations.

    This is a cool flat for two people in exceptional location.

  • This place was an absolute pleasure - completely worth walking up 6 floors. My mother, brother and I stayed for 4 nights. We loved cooking in the kitchen after shopping at the nearby market, and sitting on the terrace. Antoine was the most gracious host. He was there at check-in to show us all we needed to know about the flat. He was available during our stay in case we had questions. I highly recommend this place!

  • We had a great time in Barcelona, the panorama view from the rooftop terrace was fantastic. Antoine is a very helpful and thoughtful host. Everthing you need for a private stay you get in the apartment. A fully equipped kitchen, so we enjoyed our breakfast in the morning with the beautiful view. It's definitely worth to climb up to the 6th floor.
    Thanks for all Antoine. We'll come again!

  • Были с подругой в середине апреля. Апартаменты полностью соответствуют тому, что заявлено: 2 этажа (1-й - комната, 2-й - кухня + терраса), есть wi-fi, на кухне - вся необходимая посуда и приборы. Есть стиральная машинка, блендер, соковыжималка, тостер, холодильник. Ванная с туалетом - не особо. Но все чистое. отмытое хозяином до блеска :)
    Вообще хозяин, Антуан, прекрасен: нас он встретил бутылкой шампанского и клубникой. Все показал-рассказал и быстро ретировался. Увиделись мы с ним второй раз только при возврате ключей (нам пообещали поздний выезд - самолет в 23.00, и слово свое сдержали!).
    Апартаменты довольно простенькие, но терраса и вид на 360 градусов искупает все!!!! Единственный существенный минус (но этого никто не скрывает) - это 6-й этаж без лифта. ножки мы поднакачали огого! :)
    Район вокруг хороший, спокойный, много магазинов, а небольшие лавочки с едой работают допоздна. В 2 шагах - музей Пикассо. До остальных основных достопримечательностей можно добраться за 10-15 минут - и в центр, и до моря.
    В общем, рекомендую всем, кто не обременен детьми, большими сумками и не планирует по 5 раз на дню возвращаться в квартиру :)

  • Beautiful apartment, great location and very helpful host. The Kitchen was well equipped, including a complimentary bottle of Cava, and the rooftop terrace is amazing. We had a perfect stay here, no problems. This apartment is worth climbing the six flights of stairs for.

  • We had an absolutely fantastic time in Barcelona, and having Antoine's place to stay just made it even more amazing! It was hard to leave his flat to go sightseeing because it was just so nice. The views are not to be missed, and the location is perfect, right in the middle of the Gothic area. The flat was lovely and clean when we arrived and we had no problems our entire stay.

    Antoine was a fantastic host, he gave really clear instructions on how to find his place and gave us plenty of recommendations for places to eat in the area and things to visit.

    I would certainly not hesitate to recommend anyone to stay here as long as you're comfortable with stairs. The view is definitely worth it!
