LIVING BY THE BEACH

Located within the old city in the heart of Barcelona, the area of Barceloneta has the charm of a “village” hidden between the beach & the marina while offering all the advantages linked to its prime location.

Why we think Barceloneta is a great place to buy an apartment:


Location: nothing beats Barceloneta if you like to run along the sea in the morning, swim, sunbath or simply enjoy evening cocktails by the beach and walk home after. Add to this, truly welcoming people, plenty of nice local restaurants, supermarkets and small artisan shops and you would not want to leave!


In some cases, traditional architectural elements can still be found in the apartment (moulding, ceramic flooring of origin, traditional windows) and in most cases wooden beams and Catalan vault can be uncovered. With a bit of work, you can turn a simple apartment into a real gem.

Layout:


Apartments come mostly in two formats: 30sqm or 60sqm, the latest would normally offer 3 bedrooms and the first one 1 to 2 bedrooms depending of the layout.


In most cases (besides street corner apartments & recent constructions), the flat has a rectangular shape with three openings to the street on one of its side (more often than not a balcony in the center and a window on each side).


The 60 sqm is basically made of two 30 sqm put together, it would thus open on two streets with a total of six openings.


The traditional staircases are extremely narrow so do not expect elevator but then location, people and lifestyle wise, Barceloneta never ceases to charm.

How is this area different:


Architecture wise the façade are less ornamented (this part of Barcelona used to be the fishermen area)


Apartments are smaller and come mostly in two formats: 30 & 60sqm


A larger part of the population is from Catalan origin, as for the foreigners they mostly come from Europe.
