Dreaming about Barcelona? You should rent an apartment

How many times have you dreamed about living in the beautiful Barcelona? Why don’t you make it true and rent an apartment to experience in-situ the real Mediterranean-way-of-life? Imagine that you could have your own apartment here and come once a month, or twice. Or even every weekend! Why not? You don’t know where to start looking for a place to rent in Barcelona? Well, that’s why we will speak today about El Borne (or Born), one of the coolest places to rent an apartment.

If you want to live surrounded by history, you should rent an appartment in Barcelona.

Located between Via Laietana and the Ciutadella Park, in the old town of Barcelona, el Borne is nowadays the trendy place to be. Restaurants, bars, small independent art galleries and designer boutiques will be your neighbours… if you decide to rent an apartment in Barcelona, you will be right at the crossroads of medieval and modern influences in the city. Just a few minutes from your apartment, you will find the magnificent basilica of Santa Maria del Mar (do you know you there’s a F.C. Barcelona emblem in one of the glass windows?), the architectural extravaganza that is the Palau de la Música Catalana, the Picasso Museum, the Arc of Triunf and the green space of Ciutadella Park. The best part of renting an apartment in El Borne is that the area is also well connected to the rest of the city by Barcelona’s excellent underground metro system that you will have no excuse to go outside and live the city.

Living surrounded by history and museums are not the only benefits of renting an apartment in Barcelona. If you decide to live in the downtown, you will enjoy as well the beach and the delicious mediterranean food just in few minutes. Not only El Borne is famous for its increasing offer of restaurants and tapas bars but also the neighbourhoods of el Gótico and el Raval have a very multi cultural assortment of places to enjoy the food. You could go there taking a nice walk or go biking and choose one different place to eat every weekend. We promise: you will never get bored!

But if the reason to rent an apartment in Barcelona is going to the beach, then you will be also in the right place: walking or cycling from any of the above mentioned neighbourhoods you can reach La Barceloneta in some minutes. If you want a more relaxing beach you can always take a train from Plaça Catalunya and in less than 30 minutes reach one of the more quieter beaches in the coast of Barcelona.  You decide!
