Describe your home
My home is a new apartment with lots of light and 50 sqm for 1 bedroom.
The kitchen and the living room have very high doors to the balcony, with lots of light. The flat is decorated with lots of colours and it's rather cosy.
If you work from home, I have a small study in the living room, next to the window to get plently of light, with an adjustable table, a monitor and an ergonomic chair.
I love having a balcony, where I have breakfast every day and where sometimes I even work, with views to nice buildings and even a little bit of the mountains and the Sagrada Familia. But my major pleasure is that I'm very close to the beach, so almost every day I go for a walk or for a run.
The flat is in the neighbourhood of Poblenou, which is very lively area and I really enjoy living here. Sometimes I even forget that the rest of Barcelona exists, even if it's very close too!
My neighbourhood used to be an industrial area. Nowadays there's a mixture of old industrial buildings, new technological companies, cozy small streets, etc.
It's very close to the beach, to markets, bars and restaurants. You can walk to the markets, to the beach, cycle along the beach, hire a windsurfing board, or walk to a nearby restaurant.
You're also very well connected with the rest of Barcelona with 2 underground lines and buses just in front. In 15 minutes you can get from my door to Plaça Catalunya (the very heart of Barcelona).
Barcelona has plenty to see, but if you want to travel around, you will very close to nice countryside areas, the Pyrenees mountains, the nice beaches of Costa Brava and lots of culture, like Dalí's museum, for example.
There are also quiet a few places that you can reach by public transport, like the beautiful city of Girona or the town of Sitges.
