-ideal for couples, honeymoons and special occasions.
This large and stately apartment is situated on a beautiful and dinamic pedestrian street in the loveliest part of the super hip Gòthic neighborhood, surrounded by all the most historic sights the city has to offer and right in the middle of the city.
The apartment in itself is unique in Barcelona as it is within a XVIII century palace.
Not only that, at the immediate street level you will find boutiques, restaurants and cocktail bars alongside tapas eateries, sunny cafe terraces and historical sights like the Cathedral (2mins away), Ciutadella Park and the Picasso Museum. Since it is so centrally located, the apartment will be the the perfect base from which to explore Barcelona by foot, bicycle or by metro.
The apartment itself is lordly, airy, and at 100 m2, super spacious. It boasts high ceilings( 6 meters) , wooden beams, original 18th century frescos , polished mosaic floors and there is a huge garden 100m2 with a neoclassic fountain that receives plenty of sunlight during the whole day.
The apartment is on the ground floor of a lovely 18th century palace belonging to the old catalan nobility that will soon be restored.
Even though the apartment is located right in the center of Barcelona there is absolutely NO city noise.
2 city bicycles are included in the price. The best way you could possibly want to get around town. You can bike down to the beach in 5 minutes.
The apartment consists of one large and comfortable bedroom that incudes a modern bathroom and a large open-plan living room( 65m2) and kitchen. Should you feel like cooking, the kitchen is fully equipped and features the best quality gourmet standards.
The apartment has been renovated as of February 2013 by a known local interior designer and is a superb example of mixing the antique with avantgarde.
