Vacation Rentals, Spain, Catalonia - Barcelona
Leisure and business apartments in Barcelona and Paris
For vacationers, apartments offer more space, privacy and comfort than hotels, usually at lower cost. This is especially true for families or friends traveling together, who would otherwise need to take two or more rooms.
For the business person, an apartment provides a place to relax, prepare for meetings and get necessary work done in surroundings that feel like home, not a sterile room or shared facilities.
All travelers can choose a self-catering apartment based on budget, neighborhood, nearby transportation and personal interests. They also will have complete kitchen facilities that allow them to store snacks and beverages and even to cook complete meals if they wish, using fresh ingredients purchased at local markets.
Dealing directly with owners who take pride in their properties located throughout Barcelona we work hard to help clients find the place that is right for their interests, tastes and travel style, whether that is an affordable but stylish studio in El Born, a two-bedroom near the Cathedral or family sized space in l'Eixample.
Reserving is easy. Just fill out the My Trip Plan form on our web site, www.likelivingthere.com with basic information such as your arrival and departure dates, the size of your party and your abilities and interests. We will search our inventory and make recommendations. Or browse our apartments on your own - if you see something you like drop us an e-mail to check availability.
Payment is accepted by all major credit cards and PayPal and there is never a surcharge. Once you're reserved you will be put in touch with the owner who will guide you through the arrival process. We also will continue to be available and to share useful information on transportation, attractions and dining.
Here are just a few of the dozens of Barcelona apartments we are privileged to represent:
El Born Large Studio
Affordable 35 square meter studio in the lively El Born district. Set on a small, treed plaza within a short walk of great restaurants like Comerç 24 and Santa Maria. Double or twin beds and a sleep sofa fit up to four persons. The apartments are owned by a well-regarded local hospitality company, with finishes and amenities to hotel standards. Daily room tidying included.
Smaller and larger units are available. Best Available Rate guarantee.
Perfect for a couple or small family, this 2 bedroom is located midway between the Sagrada Família cathedral and Passeig de Gràcia, with its Gaudi buildings, classy shops and abundant restaurants. Local eating places and markets are nearby. Situated on the top (6th) floor with elevator, there also is a shared rooftop terrace with wonderful views. The charming Gràcia district is only a short walk away. Two blocks up Passeig Sant Joan you will find a children’s playground.
The nearby Verdaguer Metro station serves the L4 and L5 lines, providing easy access to the rest of the city.
Liceu 2 bedroom
Contemporary comfort just off Las Ramblas. On the fourth (U.S.) floor with a modern elevator, this two bedroom is completely renewed, including new acoustic windows on the street side, assuring quiet within a short walk of Barcelona’s fascinating tourist thoroughfare.
The extra water closet – unusual in Barcelona – makes mornings more enjoyable. Easily whip up everything from snacks to a gourmet meal in the complete contemporary kitchen. The bedrooms are separated to provide privacy and the living room ceiling is the restored original.
Large El Born 3 bedroom
This large, clean and comfortable apartment is one of several in a fully renovated early 20th century building. Step from the cast iron entrance door and you are within an easy walk of the Barcelona cathedral, the Picasso Museum and Santa Maria del Mar church. A Metro and bus stop are just up the block. It has a double bedroom and two singles plus a sofa bed, and two full bathrooms.
The lively El Born neighborhood is filled with tapas bars, cafés, small shops and boutiques offering everything from handmade soap to unique clothing. A pharmacy and food stores also are nearby. The oceanside Barceloneta district and Las Ramblas are each a 20-minute stroll or short cab ride away.
You will be greeted by the owner, who speaks English well, has her office in the building and personally cares for the apartments.
Roomy Raval studio
Roomy, stylish apartment on Carrer de la Reina Amàlia, at the edge of the edgy, trendy El Raval district.
A moderate walk takes you to the seafront, Montjuic or the Ramblas and the fascinating La Boqueria market and then to the Gothic Quarter. The museum of contemporary art and the Sant Antoni market also are nearby, along with numerous shops and dining choices. Metro stops are within about six blocks.
Note: With its diverse immigrant population this area is not for everyone. This apartment is only one block from a larger street and taxis can take you to your door.
