The different locations in Barcelona for short-term holiday home or flat rentals

If you want to take a private holiday, a business trip or perhaps plan a similar stay in Barcelona, you can choose from a wide range of
multi-faceted location options for the temporary rental of your premium residence. Depending on your individual preferences, this will help you find the ideal environment from which to plan your further travel arrangements.

In Barcelona, this
city centre is called the Eixample. Renting a premium flat in this neighbourhood means you will be right in the middle of the fascinating buzz and excitement of the city centre, while the main sights ranging from the Sagrada Familia to the Passeig de Gràcia are practically right on your doorstep. You can also look forward to an excellent choice of cultural attractions, such as the Museum of Contemporary Art, the CCCB cultural centre or the Palau de la Música concert hall. Thanks to excellent transportation connections by bus from Plaza Cataluña, Barcelona Airport can be reached quickly, in addition to many other destinations, ensuring your mobility at all times.

The picturesque
Gràcia district is characterized by a series of atmospheric lanes and squares inviting you to explore the area. Enjoy discovering the charming cafés and shops of this district and simply forget about time while undertaking an extended shopping spree under the Catalan sun. Holiday flats in Gràcia are also just a few short steps away from Park Güell, already mentioned above, where you can appreciate various works by Gaudi and enjoy a dreamlike view over the whole of Barcelona.

You will also find a wide range of shopping opportunities and restaurants in Les Corts. The elegant and trendy mall Illa Diagonal, for example, has a particularly extensive selection in this respect, leaving practically nothing to be desired when it comes to shopping. In addition, if you are a dedicated football fan, you will definitely get your money's worth here, as the Camp Nou is also located in Les Corts. The affiliated Barça Museum is one of the five most often visited museums in Spain - another good reason to rent a comfortable holiday property in Les Corts. To give you an example, one of the most desirable neighbourhoods for luxury holiday rentals is the Pedralbes district. In this quiet residential area, named after the distinctive white stones of the local monastery, you will find a sheltered and laid-back environment that is particularly suitable for your short-term rental if you want to escape the stress and fast pace of everyday life. Thanks to only short distances to the city centre of Barcelona, you can still remain flexible and fully enjoy your stay in Barcelona

Quality time in Barcelona: Don’t miss these highlights on your next trip!

One of the most exciting and beautiful cities in Europe, Barcelona uniquely combines time-honoured flair with a modern, cosmopolitan lifestyle. Allow yourself to be captivated by the city’s magnificent buildings and historical monuments: Barcelona’s iconic landmark is the Sagrada Familia Cathedral, a majestic basilica designed by Antoni Gaudi, whose construction began in 1882 and to this day is still unfinished. If you rent a luxury flat or holiday home with Engel & Völkers Holiday Rentals, you should make it a point not to miss this spectacularly unique example of modernist architecture. The Casa Batlló, the Casa Milà and the numerous mosaics of Park Güell are also considered important examples of Gaudi’s vividly colourful style, which has had a defining impact on Barcelona that is still evident today. 

Not far from your holiday residence you will also find the Passeig de Gràcia, one of the most splendid shopping streets in all of Spain. Among other attractions, here you will find a wide selection of flagship stores and boutiques of renowned luxury manufacturers that will enrich your short stay in Barcelona with an exclusive shopping experience. You can also witness Spain’s vibrancy and joie de vivre at first hand on the famous Las Ramblas boulevard, where, in addition to other premium shops, high-quality gastronomy and entertainment options await you. For a truly authentic shopping experience, pay a visit to the market halls of the Mercat de la Boqueria, where you can buy fresh fish, fruit, vegetables, meat and other produce from the surrounding area. 

Another highlight not to be missed during your short stay in Barcelona is the Montjuic neighbourhood. Located on one of the local hills, it offers spectacular views over the city, access to beautiful gardens, an ancient castle and a number of museums. Among the latter, particularly noteworthy is the Poble Espanyol, an open-air museum modelled on a traditional Spanish village.

If you feel like relaxing and cooling off while renting a premium holiday property in Barcelona, visit the well-kept beach promenade in the shadow of the golden fish sculpture known as El Peix d’Or. More than 4.5 kilometres long, the beach with its exquisitely fine sand is perfect for sunbathing, swimming and engaging in water sports. Also close by, is El Born, one of Barcelona’s most exclusive neighbourhoods, inviting you to rent a flat or a holiday home for a short stay. Among others, visit the Palau de la Música concert hall or enjoy an excellent dinner at one of the high-quality restaurants located along the charming streets of El Born. And if you’re particularly keen on sports, go and see Camp Nou, FC Barcelona’s legendary home football stadium and the largest football arena in the world.
