The recently renovated Provenza Terrace is a lovely, spacious penthouse apartment. Located in the heart of L’Eixample Right (Provenza/Bailen), just 4 blocks east of the iconic Passeig de Gracia and 4 blocks west of Gaudi’s incomparable Sagrada Famila.
The Provenza Terrace is in one of the best locations of Barcelona. Passeig de Gracia is considered by many to be the highlight of Barcelona, with its exquisite, modernist architecture including Gaudi’s La Pedrera and Casa Batlló, and its famous stores and restaurants. This world-renowned Avenue, comparable to the Champs-Elysées or 5th Avenue, is just a short stroll from your home.
Just one block west of Passeig de Gracia is the enchanting Rambla Catalunya, with its local blend of shops and restaurants. Walking south on Rambla Catalunya for 15 minutes will take you to Las Ramblas, famous for its unique street performances. And just north of the Provenza Terrace is the wonderful neighborhood of Gracia, known for its intimate ambience and countless small restaurants, bars and boutiques. Located north of Gracia is Parc Güell, an architectural/sculptural dreamland by Gaudi.
To the south; the Gothic Quarter - with its intricate maze of plaças and squares all interconnected by narrow, medieval streets, the trendy El Borne and the southern part of Las Ramblas, can be reached in minutes, direct, via Metro L4 (at your doorstep) or by an enjoyable 25 minute walk. And one stop further on the L4 metro will take you to Barcelonetta, with its many seafood restaurants, and a stunning Mediterranean beach. For those wishing to cook, you can visit, in a few minutes walk, the colorful Mercat de la Concepció, an authentic Catalan fresh market housed in a beautiful modernist structure.
The highlight of the Provenza Terrace is certainly the expansive, south-facing terrace with a distinct dining area and lounging area. Perfect for fresh, sunny breakfasts or romantic candlelight dinners, this feature will allow you to truly enjoy your time at home. And with its glass-enclosed solarium, motorized awning to provide shade and night lighting, this area will be a welcome retreat any time of day or night. Guests will appreciate the many restful, outdoor areas perfect for reading, writing and relaxing.
The spacious living room features fabulous natural light from the wall-to-wall sliding doors, elegant glass dining table, comfortable furniture and original art work. The terrace is visually a part of this living space and creates a very open, welcoming ambience. The living room and both bedrooms have individual A/C units. There is also Wi-Fi, wide screen TV and DVD for our guests.
The master bedroom has a queen size bed, ensuite bath and attached glass solarium that opens to the terrace. The large second bedroom features two single beds, desk and lounge and has its own separate bathroom.
The brand new kitchen is complete with everything needed to prepare wonderful meals during your stay, including coffee maker, toaster, microwave, gas stove, electric oven and dishwasher. And from the kitchen you may access the washing machine located on an adjacent patio.
During the day a doorman is on duty, and there are two modern elevators to take you up to the penthouse. There are no stairs from the entrance door to the elevator so it is very easy to bring in your luggage.
The Provenza Terrace has everything you will need for an enjoyable, comfortable and memorable visit to Barcelona.
