El Palauet Barcelona

Barcelona, Spain

Located on Barcelona’s most exclusive boulevard at Passeig de Gràcia 113, this five-story palatial mansion, built in 1906, is an extraordinary example of Modernisme (the sumptuous Catalan version of Art Nouveau). Gaudi’s undulating Casa Milà, also known as La Pedrera, is just three blocks south. Six two-bedroom, two-bath apartment-style suites, extremely spacious (150 M2), each with personal assistant, accommodate up to four guests. Similar in layout, the suites feature a fully-equipped kitchen, dining room, living room, stellar contemporary furnishings, and state-of-the-art technology throughout. Masterful interior decor features contemporary pieces by an array of award-winning designers: Charles and Ray Eames, Ero Saarinen, Warren Platner, Arne Jacobsen, Mies van der Rohe, Philippe Starck, and Antonio Citterio (“less is more”) whose modernsleek works are in the permanent collection of MoMA New York.
