How to Choose an Apartment with Terrace for your Holidays in Barcelona

Time has come! You are planning your holidays and you have already chose Barcelona as your summer destination. Now, you need to find a perfect apartment with terrace to enjoy the great weather.

  • I will give you some tips and facts you should consider before renting an apartment with terrace in Barcelona:First of all, you must know exactly why you prefer an apartment with terrace. Are you planning to lay back naked under the sun of Barcelona? Well, then make sure you don’t rent an apartment located in “planta principal” (main floor) or “entresuelo” (mezzanine), unless you love having spectators from the upper terraces. Not comfortable with this idea? You value your privacy? Then you need a penthouse. The ático apartments usually have the must sunny, spacious and private terraces in Barcelona. Take a look to our Ferran Batik to have a glance of what a perfect sunset might be.

  • If you are dreaming with a relaxing holiday, you would enjoy an apartment with a terrace overlooking a peaceful street.  Make sure the bedrooms are not facing the street, to avoid traffic and other street noise during night. Try our Neo Apartment, a charming flat with sunny terrace where you can just sit back and have a great chat over a bottle of cava.

  • Coming with kids? You better rent an apartment with a big terrace where they can play while you charge batteries.  Our Garden House is the perfect apartment for families. Your kids will have their own playground in Barcelona.

  • If you are a social traveler who loves being surrounded by people, then you don’t really need an apartment with terrace as you will pay for a space you will not really use – believe me! Generally speaking, apartments with a private terrace costs a lot more.  So, you’ll probably save money by opting to rent an apartment, not at the beach, but near the beach.  Parsifal apartment is  literally steps from La Rambla, next to the Liceu Metro stop and 20 minutes walking to Barceloneta Beach.

You are done. Now is time to make easier choices…bikinis, hats and sun block!

Good luck, and see you soon in Barcelona!

The Best Apartment @La Rambla: Parsifal

Apartment in la rambla barcelona

This month’s Best Seller is, according to our guests, one of the best locations to stay in Barcelona.

Parsifal is located at La Rambla, very convenient to The Mercat de la Boqueria, which has the freshest produce and gourmet items with the most flavor of the city. Very close by Gran Teatre del Liceu, the internationally renowned temple of music, Plaça Reial with its arcades, fountains and lampposts designed by Gaudí. All these are must-see stops. On the other side of the Rambla, we travel in time to historical Barcelona, guided through the narrow streets of the Gothic Quarter and further along, the cosmopolitan neighborhood of El Born, a haven for artists and trend-setting avant-garde fashion boutiques.

The Apartment

We speak of a spacious apartment with a large living room with fully equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances.

Three bedrooms, two of them doubles and one individual, willl guard your dreams, which will be placid and relaxing, as all the bedrooms face away from the street Sant Pau. Our Parsifal apartment has two full modern design bathrooms, one en suite in the master bedroom, with large showers and heated towel rails to keep your towels warm. Central air conditioning in all rooms. All windows are double glazed aluminum anti-noise for great soundproofing and insulation.

What our Guests Say:

“This apartment is just steps off La Rambla, good for family with kids. Bedrooms are quiet facing to the yard. Kitchen is nice and well equipped. Plenty of restaurants and cafes around. Definitely better than family room in hotel for the same money.”

“We stayed at this beautiful apartment for one week and everything was perfect. The accommodations are comfortable and spacious. Is literally at a few steps from las Ramblas and there is a metro station just in from of the Liceu which is next to the apartment. We walked everywhere and felt safe. The apartment is walking distance to both El Raval and Barric Gotic which are the most recommended places for shopping, dinning and nightlife. We had a fabulous time!”
