The idyllic Balmes apartment takes its name from the Carrer de Balmes, on which it is located. The neighborhood is known for its architecture, exclusive boutiques and many authentic restaurants and cafes. Two of Antoni Gaudi's most famous buildings - La Pedrera and Casa Batllo - are just blocks aways.

The apartment itself is on the second floor, up one flight of stairs. It features one bedroom with a double bed overlooking the Carrer de Balmes and a second bedroom with a twin trundle bed on the interior side. They share a spacious bathroom with a bathtub, shower attachment and bidet.

L'Eixample, Spain - Barcelona, Home of Balmes

Known as Barcelona's "new town," the Eixample (literally "expansion" in Catalan) neighborhood was built in the late 19th Century after the demolition of Barcelona's old city walls. The area, famous for its wide boulevards and egalitarian design, was borne of the idealism of Catalan engineer Ildefons Cerdà, who imagined a city where green space, mobility and natural lighting combated the ills of congestion and led to a more democratic city environment.

Today, L'Eixample remains an important example of urban planning, but has attracted tourists because of the many modernist buildings which grace its streets. Home to the Quadrat d'Or (Golden Triangle), La Pedrera, the Manzana de la Discordia and Sagrada Familia among many other famous modernist buildings, the neighborhood's main boulevard, the Passeig de Gràcia, is also the top shopping destination in the city. Unlike the old city below it, L'Eixample is surprisingly free of tourists and makes an ideal home base for Untourists who can explore El Barri Gotic, El Raval, La Ribeira and the bohemian Gracia by foot from their neighborhood. L'Eixample also has excellent cafes and restaurants lining its streets.
