While for most of us the winter chills are still in full swing, some parts of Europe are already heading into the balmier weather of a Mediterranean spring. So if the sight of the sun now feels like a distant memory then it might be time you deserve a vacation somewhere full winter attire is no longer required. If this sounds like you and you have likeminded friends or family then keep reading because we may just have the answer!

This week we’ve been taking a look at some of our hottest Group apartments right now in Barcelona and we’ve narrowed it down to our 4 favourites.  These are all apartments that make us want to grab our best friends, book flights and head out for a weekend relaxing into the Mediterranean way of life.

The Perfect View

Our first apartment is a cracker! Located next to one of the most famous monuments in Spain, this apartment has it all. This colourful flat is tastefully decorated, so each room has its own distinct feel. To get the most of the midday rays, all you need to do is hop out onto your spacious balcony and enjoy the Spanish sun. However the biggest reason we love this apartment is the magnificent views of La Sagrada Familia. The idea of waking up in the morning and sharing that spectacular view with a cup of coffee and your closest friends is our idea of perfection!

Ideal Location in Barcelona

What we love about our next vacation rental is its location. It’s strategically placed between Las Ramblas, Via Laietana and the Port harbor of Port Vell, yet it’s quiet at night due to its position on the 6th floor. From this cute apartment, not only are you close to the Metro to take you to the city centre, but you can also enjoy a gentle seaside stroll along the waterfront towards the beaches of Barceloneta. On your return, you’ll be spoilt for choice with the fantastic selection of seafood and paella restaurants on offer.

For Lovers of the Barcelona Nightlife

The view of this apartment is incredible, you can inhale the salty air while watching the sea from the terrace. It’s spacious, and light, airy and located in the Vila Olímpica district. A group apartment in this neighborhood is perfect for those looking to enjoy the nightlife of the Catalan capital. It has the beach and Ciutadella Park less than a kilometer away, which gives you lots of opportunities to embrace the sun.

Get Down with the Locals!

Our last apartment is ideal for those seeking out the real Barcelona. This time we find ourselves in an once a distinct village with its own identity, Gracia. This large, sunny apartment has a real Mediterranean vibe and the sun-baked balcony is perfect to get a tan. This flat is located just 1 km away from Gaudi’s Parc Guell and the shopping exclusive street Passeig de Gracia. If you want to live like a local and experience the true Barcelona, eat in authentic Catalan restaurants and go out to local haunts, then this is the place to stay.
