The El Raval neighbourhood is where narrow streets, green spaces, craft beer and culture come together – creating the perfect setting for this large but luxury shared apartment. This large 5-bed apartment benefits from everything on its doorstep -modern design, independent cafes, dive bars, not to mention world famous Las Ramblas and Boqueria market.
Easily accessible on the first floor of this newly modernised building, you can enjoy modern and social living both inside and outside the apartment, with like-minded neighbours, a stunning shared roof terrace with 360 views, and some of the best Barcelona has to offer right on your doorstep.
In this unique 5-bedroom apartment, we’ve created a modern light-filled layout that offers individual privacy mixed with plenty of social spaces. Spanning the length of the building, this huge apartment is recently renovated whilst maintaining its original Spanish charm – wood-beamed ceilings, colourful tiled floors and bright wall prints decorate throughout. The big open-planned kitchen and lounge is a great place to cook and chat to your housemates, and also neatly divides the apartment into two bedrooms and a bathroom at the back, and three bedrooms and a bathroom at the front. Each room is fully furnished and individually lockable, with some fantastic extras such a fully stocked kitchen with a dishwasher, two communal fridges, ducted air-conditioning & heating and a separate washer and dryer in the laundry area.
Following a successful urban revitalisation of the area, the area around La Boqueria Market is now one of the most fashionable areas in town. Artists, designers, musicians, and young professionals have flocked, and within walking distance of the apartment you’ll find some of the city’s best bars, newest restaurants and finest contemporary culture, set against a backdrop of historic architecture and winding narrow streets.
The nearby imposing white, glass-fronted MACBA modern art museum houses a brilliant mixed collection of well-known names, including famed Spanish artists Dali, Picasso and Velazquez, and exciting temporary exhibitions from emerging artists. Skateboarders outside use the gleaming open square to practice their tricks from dawn to dusk, whilst the surrounding streets pack in contemporary design stores, fashion boutiques and cosy corner cafes. If it is bohemian charm mixed with vibrant modern style you’re after, La Boqueria is the place to be.
EAT: Caravelle (c/ Pinto Fortuny, 31) – With arguably the best eggs in town, head here if you’re craving a brunch that packs a punch with a side of quality barista-made coffee. Its market-sourced, seasonal menu is packed full of offerings such as Moroccan-style baked eggs, corn fritters with avocado and pesto or creamy French Toast, served up in a modern, airy cantina-style setting.
SHOP: Nuovum (c/ Pinto Fortuny 30) – Wander across the road after brunch and check out this design concept store – a hub for upcoming designers to show off unique and original wares. No standard-issue tourist tat here.
DO: Institut d’Estudis Catalans (Career del Carme) – Housing the present day Institute for Catalan Studies, this historic building and hidden courtyard is a cool, calm oasis offering a respite from the busy city just beyond its stone archways. With mosaic tiled walls, bubbling fountains and a courtyard café – this is the perfect place to chill with friends, grab a morning coffee or just get away from it all.
