The small corner of the Eixample known as Sant Antoni is a trendy neighbourhood renowned for its food scene – and its reputation has only been enhanced by the recent reopening of the Sant Antoni food market. This bright, modern apartment has something of a Scandinavian feel to it, with its minimalist décor blending old, whitewashed walls and stylish furniture. Its large outdoor penthouse terrace is ideal for eating out on (there’s a fully equipped kitchen indoors) or enjoying a glass of chilled cava before a night out on the nearby, buzzing Parlament Street.
