So we were really excited when Mr A found the perfect spot in The Plaza de la Constitutión. The square was used as a bullring in years gone by and the balconies which overlook it still display numbers from when people used to rent them out to spectators. The apartment’s quirky style was just what we look for in the places we stay and the fact that it was in the Old Town meant that we would be right in the centre of the action. As it turned out we were never more than five metres away from a pintxos bar in any direction – heaven!
Thanks to the instructions we’d been sent from People Rentals it was really easy to find the apartment and we decided to walk the half an hour from the bus stop in order to get our bearings and immediately soak up the atmosphere of the city. While both Mr A and I love the great outdoors, we are also massive city fans and checking out unusual shops, making mental notes about places we want to return to eat at and people watching are all part of the fun for us.
The apartment itself was everything we had hoped for. The living room contained two huge sofas, a coffee table and a TV (Spanish channels only) and the cute kitchen was fully stocked with everything we would need during our stay. There was a bathroom – with a bath – and a second bedroom downstairs and our master bedroom was on a mezzanine overlooking the room. I loved the wooden beams and quirky touches everywhere and the way the patches of sunlight which shone through the skylights.
