This cute little 1 bedroom 40m2 apartment is in a very central location - Las Ramblas is just a 15 minute walk away! The breezy balconette with built-in bench gets the morning sun; there's a great view, wifi & everything else you need for your stay!

This homely and welcoming turn-of-the-century 1 bedroom apartment is just a 15 minute walk from Barcelona's main central street Las Ramblas. The painted wooden ceiling beams and original French doors, combined with the colourful eclectic decor make this a perfect home away from home for a single person or a couple to spend some time in this beautiful, sunny city.

As you enter the apartment you walk into the kitchen/dining area. There is a breakfast bar and dining table, and to the right there is the bathroom, with shower and toilet. Going left past the dining table and kitchen you pass the lounge area with flat-screen TV in a cosy, open nook just off the kitchen.

Down a little hallway is the large bedroom with a double bed and a gorgeous little balconette with wrought iron railing and built-in bench, overlooking a one-way lane with very little traffic.

There is a washing machine and access to high speed wifi as well as a fully equipped kitchen (though there is no microwave, there is a small portable oven). Also, for guests wanting to stay over the hotter months, please be aware that there is no air-conditioning, though there are a couple of ventilator fans. For winter there are electric heaters.

The apartment is on the fourth floor and please be aware that there is no elevator.

I meet you when you arrive to let you into the apartment and we usually chat a bit about the apartment and the neighbourhood, I ask what you'd like to do here and give you a few tips. After that I live just downstairs so you can just pop down or send me an email if there's anything you need! I have also created some online maps with my favourite places to eat and fun things to do which I will send to you when you book to give you a head-start on living in Barcelona like a local, and anything you need you only have to ask! Looking forward to meeting you! :-)

The building has been recently renovated and is typical of the area, Poble Sec, built in the late 1800s and early 1900s and packed full of character and charm. The neighbourhood itself is nestled at the foot of Barcelona's hill and park: Montjuic, and boasts many lovely old buildings. I consider Poble Sec to be one of Barcelona's "best kept secrets": while still being very central (Las Ramblas is only a 15 minute walk away), it is slightly off to one side and therefore not as overrun with crowds and tourists as the Gothic, Borne and Raval areas. The central pedestrian main street (Calle Blai), just around the corner from the apartment, is hugely popular with the locals and has some great bars and restaurants which spring to life at night. One of my favourite pass-times is to spend evenings on one of the many terraces here and enjoy the vibrant atmosphere and tasty food.

As I mentioned earlier, Las Ramblas is a 15 minute walk away, so you're almost right in the centre of town, even though the Poble Sec neighbourhood is off to one side of the immediate downtown area.

Barcelona is pretty small anyway and I tend to walk or bike just about everywhere from Poble Sec. But if you don't feel like exercise, there is a metro station a 3 minute walk away from the apartment which connects you to all of Barcelona.

The beach is about 35-40 minutes walk away, or a 10-15 minute bike ride (there's a bike rental place just around the corner where you can rent bikes for €45 per week, and they also often sell used bikes for cheap and buy them off you again for 50% of the purchase price at the end of your stay - so a great cheap option if you're staying a month or more). It's a lovely walk/ride to the beach though which carries you through the old neighbourhoods in the centre of town and along the harbour front. You can also take the metro or there's a couple of buses which leave every 10 minutes from a stop just down the road.

Please note there is:
- NO AIRCON (though there are fans and heaters)
- NO ELEVATOR (4th floor)
- NO DISHWASHER
- NO MICROWAVE (though there is a little mini-oven)

**Check-in time is 4pm and check-out time is 12pm, but if you are arriving earlier or want to leave later, just let me know, and if I have nobody checking in or out that day then check-in/out can be flexible. Otherwise, there's also the option of leaving your bags in my apartment in the meantime as I live in the same building - so whatever time you arrive, it won't be a problem! :-)

** NOISE: This is a very lively, vibrant neighbourhood so please be aware that at night there will be sounds from the street of people talking (especially in the weekends: Thurs-Sat) , (there is a small bar and a community space/cafe (open on weekends till 2am) down the street, but you don't ever hear any music, just the murmer of people standing in the street and talking) and the occasional drunk person talking loudly. I live in the same building and sometimes sleep with earplugs (I recommend this for pretty much any apartment in the inner city in Barcelona - it's a lively city!) - they cut out 100% of the noise as they are particularly good at cutting out the low frequency of the murmur of human voices. With those, I sleep like a log and have no trouble at all with the sounds. But if you are a light sleeper sensitive to noise and if you don't like earplugs, this probably isn't the apartment for you.

I'm a 39 year old kiwi motion graphic designer/artist/handywoman, and have been living in Barcelona since 2008 with my Spanish partner Marcos, who is a book editor & musician. Before coming to Barcelona I traveled quite a bit (like all Kiwis), and lived in London for a while (again: like all Kiwis). I love my food and was a bit exasperated when I first arrived in Barcelona as I felt it was quite difficult to find good, non-touristy food in the centre. So since then I've been putting together an online map of places I find that are a bit special, and I always pass the link on to anyone who rents the flat. The good thing is that quite a high proportion of the good places are nearby in the Poble Sec neighbourhood. I love to provide little extras and put in a great deal of effort into making the apartment look great and just generally adding all the little extra details that I know from experience can really make the difference and enhance someone's stay. I look forward to hosting you! :-)
