In the heart of the Villa Olímpica, a modern and striking area of Barcelona, by the beach and within easy access to Old Town Barcelona

This one bedroom apartment in the heart of the Villa Olimpica is extremely convenient as the visitor is close to the Nova Icaria beach (300 meters) and yet within walking distance to the Old Town of Barcelona, the Gothic Quarter, El Borne and the famous La Rambla.

The area surrounding the apartment:

During the games of 1992, the Villa Olímpica had to accommodate thousands of athletes and spectators. Architects from all over the world were called in and designed modern and stylish buildings. Some of the main features are the 142 meters high towers and the Arts Hotel in the Villa Olímpica which is surrounded by a steel frame, so it seems like it is in scaffolding. Another feature of this great area is the golden sculpture ‘Pez y Esfera’, designed by Frank Gehry, representing a headless fish, quite a sight!

The village also has a beautiful promenade which is full of sculptures, nice for leisurely strolls at any time of the day but even more so in the evening. This is a very lively neighborhood with lots of trendy restaurants and bars and the atmosphere is alive and palpable!

At a 100 meters' walk from the Gauguin II apartment you will find the Villa's shopping centre, which houses the 15 screen Icaria cinema (all movies are shown in original version) as well as many restuarants, shops, supermarkets and pretty much anything you may need.

The apartment:

This lovely one bedroom apartment is bright and cheery with lots of natural light and lovely wooden floors, making it very relaxing and a great place to choose for your visit to Barcelona. The look and feel of this apartment is modern, simple and elegant, with splashes of colour here and there, giving the apartment a nice feeling of warmth. The bedroom has a double bed and closet space with an ensuite bathroom. The living room is completely equipped with TV, DVD and stereo; here you will also find the stylish leather sofa, which converts into a sofabed for two, as well as the dining table with seating for four. The bathroom has a bath/shower unit and also comes with fresh towels ready for your use upon arrival. The kitchen is brand new, with all the modern conveniences to ensure your holiday is a hassle free one, with all the basics such as pots, pans, plates, cutlery together with juicer, toaster, microwave and dishwasher. The terrace to this apartment is long and narrow and runs along the length of the apartment where the guest can sit and enjoy some of the finer culinary treats Spain has to offer such as "fuet" and "vino tinto" after a busy day at the beach or from sightseeing!

Should your visit to Barcelona be for business as well as leisure this apartment has a telephone and Internet connection.

The Gauguin II is part of a complex with an outdoor pool for use in the hot weather season, so guests will also be able to enjoy many a relaxing hour lounging by the pool should you want a change from the nearby beach. The air conditioning in the apartment will ensure that any time the hot summer days get too much you can relax in a cool, fresh atmosphere.

All linens and towels are provided as well as an iron and ironing board.

Whether you are in Barcelona to work, shop, visit or explore, staying at this apartment will be the perfect base for your visit!

I think the location was good. Close to Barceloneta, the beach and the center area, but still a lot quieter than most of the other areas. The building and the neighbors were also quiet. The apartment had pretty much everything we needed. The contact person was very pleasant, understanding and helpful.
The only thing that I can think of which I didn't like in the apartment was the bed in the bedroom. It was quite okay and wide, but a little bit too hard for my back. It would have been good to have some kind of mattress pad on the top of the spring mattresses. That was probably a part of the reason I didn't sleep very well there. Maybe it's just my sensitive back. I don't know if the other guests have noticed anything. Anyway. . not a huge problem.

We really enjoyed the location of the place . It was nice and quite out of the busy zones . Just what we needed after a busy or a brag day . Shops and and metro stations are in walking distance . The beach and port Olympic is just a 10 minutes walk . The owner is a lovely lady. She was very helpful and pointed us in the right directions when we arrived . Would definitely recommend this place to others for a luxury stay in barcelona

Check-in/aus waren sehr freundlich und informativ. Die Lage der Wohnung ist in der Nähe des Zentrums (zu Fuß ca. 20 Minuten) und des Strands (zu Fuß ca. 5 Minuten) erreichbar und für die Verhältnisse in Barcelona relativ ruhig. Die nahe gelegenste Metro-Station ist "Bogatell". Die Ausstaqttung der Wohnung war sehr gut (zumindest hat uns nichts gefehlt.

We absolutely LOVED the location - so close to the beach and in such a modern area, yet close walking distance to many of Barcelona's sights. We also really liked how modern the apartment was and how well equipped it was. The area was nice and quiet, which was great. Also, Rosa Maria Domingo made our check in and check out very smooth and pleasant. She gave us lots of great information about the city, and even had some water and fruit waiting for us, which was VERY much appreciated given how late we arrived. Overall we had an amazing experience.
