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 great three 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, approx 15-20 mins, 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 10 min walk from the Olimpic 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:
