With a private concierge, access to a gym and a sauna too, this apartment is more of a mission to outdo luxury hotels than a cosy holiday home. Upon check-in, you'll be given a pillow catalogue to make sure your neck and head are well-rested, and that's just one example of the high-end service on offer. This home is built with a love for the finer things, so expect designer furniture, rainfall showers, and a highly curated selection of artworks. Our favourite personal touch is the well-stocked bookshelf with titles in all genres, while the shared swimming pool gives you fantastic views across Barcelona's rooftops. Getting around couldn't be simpler from this location in Eixample, which is home to Gaudí's Casa Milà and Sagrada Familía along with countless restaurants, boutiques and bars.
