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.
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 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!

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.
