You can stay in style like Villanelle in this beautiful Art Nouveau apartment in Barcelona. 


As we’re enjoying Killing Eve, about the only thing that can distract us from Villanelle’s amazing outfits are the stunning locations the show is shot in. In season three, perhaps the most stand-out setting was Villanelle’s Barcelona apartment.

With its high ceilings, ornate windows and a balcony looking out over the city, it lives up even to her exacting standards of style. The good news is, you don’t have to be a trained killer to enjoy a few nights in this apartment, as it’s listed on AirBnb.

Located in the area of Gracia full of designer shops, supermarkets, restaurants, bars, cinemas, night life, and boutiques, the apartment was built in 1906. It is spacious, and features a reception hall, studio, two bedrooms, glass gallery, kitchen, bathroom, dining room and separate living room. It has ornate decorative features throughout that make it a unique space.

This is not the first time that the apartment has featured on screen either, as the listing mentions that Almodovar, Allan Parker, Wim Wenders and many others have filmed there.

The apartment comes with modern amenities including Wi-fi, a TV and ceiling fans, and also has access to a shared garden and outdoor pool.

With two bedrooms, it sleeps up to four people, and would make a great place to stay once travel restrictions are eased. The apartment is listed at €260 per night plus cleaning fees, with a two-night minimum stay.

I guess we’ll just have to get shopping for a Villanelle-esque wardrobe to complete our stay. Click through our gallery for the full tour.
