Vacation apartments in Barcelona
Barcelona is one of the largest tourist destinations not only in Europe, but in the world. For a comfortable alternative to hotels, consider choosing short-term apartment rentals in Barcelona that constitute a successful and secure market in Europe.
Rental apartments in Barcelona cost less than hotel rooms of comparable sizes, and yet offer you a real home where you would love to come back after a day out in Barcelona.
You get all the advantages of independent living and working in a rental apartment: you may choose to cook in a fully-equipped kitchen, you may entertain guests in the living room, you have the privacy of your own bedroom. Would you have all that in a hotel? More and more travellers prefer to rent an apartment in Barcelona for these reasons.
If you frequently travel with family or friends, you know how difficult it may be to book adjacent spacious rooms in a hotel. 1-, 2- or 3-bedroom apartments in Barcelona are easy to find. What is more, you pay per apartment, not per guest, which allows you to cut rental costs considerably, and spend quality time together.
Barcelona is a city you would not want to leave and where you would love to come back, but if you are set on more exploring, we also offer apartment, cottage and villa short-term and long-term rentals all over Europe and North America!

Palau Güell

The first major work of Gaudí that was commissioned by Eusebi Güell in 1885, Palau Güell marks not only the beginning of the friendship of Barcelona's two most famous sons, but also marks the first of many splendid architectural works in Gaudí's portfolio. Compared to his later works, Palau Güell is rather muted, almost sober, but still has plenty of typically Gaudí-like designs and utilitarian solutions. From stables in the basement to colourful chimneys on the roof, catenary arches, twisted ceilings, glass mosaics, shutters and skylights playing with natural light point to Gaudí's unique talent of making the most out of every room and every space.

The palace was built specifically for Señor Eusebi himself as his private residence, where he moved with his family after its completion in late 1880s. For the longest time, Palau Güell was completely shut down for renovations. The main hall, the master bedrooms, the servants' rooms, the famous roof, the stables had all been closed... but not anymore! Although the roof terrace sometimes closes during rainy weather, the opportunity to visit the palace is the one not to be missed. Taking pictures is allowed inside.
