El Maresme, one of the regions of Catalonia

El Maresme is a region of the province of Barcelona (Spain). 
Mataró is the capital of the Maresme region and includes populations with a lot of personality and vitality:

Its coastline is known by tourists as the Costa del Maresme.

Why you should live in El Maresme?

It's a privileged area to live, to see your family grow, to discover new friends, to maintain your passion for life... Living in El Maresme means enjoying quality of life.

Here you will not only find beaches, tourism and fun; but quiet places to live, towns with spirit and charm, close to everything and away from noise, rush and traffic. Mint from the center of Barcelona and far enough at a time. El Maresme is the ideal place to live and work in a big city. Ideal for those who seek to enjoy tranquility, without giving up the privileges of living near a big city.

Many families are choosing to live in one of the towns of El Maresme or near the coast, because they have discovered a quality of life hardly surpassed by other areas of the Province of Barcelona.

You will find everything you need to enjoy a peaceful and happy family life. With an ideal climate, El Maresme can be considered a privileged region. Its geographical location and good communications also makes it one of its main attractions, since the connection to any point of Catalonia is easy and fast both by road and by rail.

Its proximity to Barcelona means that many people who work in the Catalan capital, but prefer a quieter lifestyle, choose small towns in El Maresme to live.

Barcelona, the capital of Catalonia

Barcelona is the capital of the region known as Catalonia. It has its very own flag and a language called Catalan which you see on the street signs. If you are planning to move to Barcelona or invest in the city you should know a few things before buying: 
1. The best way to get around is by using the metro
You'll love doing lots of walking in Barcelona, but you will need to use the city’s metro at some point. There are stations all over the city and the lines are differentiable by number and colour. A single ticket on Barcelona’s metro will cost you around 2€ but rather than buying individual tickets for each journey, buy yourself a T-10 which costs around 10€ and will give you ten journeys.
2. Barcelona is one of the world capitals of architecture. 
La Pedrera
La Sagrada Familia
The city is full of buildings that are authentic works of art, with a variety of styles among which stands out the originality of Catalan modernism.

3. You should visit its two best-known parks
The first of these is Parc de la Ciutadella which can be found about ten minutes east of La Rambla. 
The other is Gaudi’s Parc Guell which is just north of the city centre.

4. Locals are very passionate about their football team
Locals are extremely passionate about their football club FC Barcelona, known locally as Barça. The home of Barcelona Football Club is Camp Nou. 
5. Here you’ll find one of Europe’s most famous streets

Barcelona is where you will find one of Europe’s most famous streets known as La Rambla. 
La Rambla is an emblematic walk of the city of Barcelona. You will find along La Rambla lots and lots of street performers. Throughout the day you can see human statues and street performers of all kinds on this famous street.
If you'd like to rent a flat in Barcelona it is convenient that you know where you want to live and the different circumstances. Each zone is a different world and you must choose one the one you like the most.

If you're looking for a more alternative lifestyle, neighborhoods such as Gràcia or Sant Antoni may be the most suitable for you. On the other hand, if you're looking for more peacefulness, an area like Sarrià-Sant Gervasi, with less traffic, may be the most suitable. If you want to be closer to the beaches, Barcelona or Vila Olímpica are two good options.

Badalona, our home

Badalona, province of Barcelona, is by population, the third largest city in Catalonia. Badalona is a city of sea and mountain. We enjoy of a Mediterranean climate, soft and humid. We have warm summers and a moderately soft winter. Badalona’s in a really well position, so is our real-estate office. 

The home of TwoKeys is in Badalona because unlike other big cities, Badalona offers the best value to live here, and that’s what we want to offer you. Another advantage of living here is that we are next to Barcelona, the capital and largest city of Catalonia, and El Maresme, composed of very important cities in Catalonia and Spain such as Mataró, Premià de Mar, Pineda de Mar, El Masnou...
One of the best things we have in Badalona is our beaches. We have a very complete urban beach, with walkways, bike lanes, bars and restaurants, parks for children and much more. While the beach in nearby Barcelona is mostly dedicated to swimmers and sun-worshipers, the beach at Badalona is home to a number of water sports and leisure centers offering a wide range of water-based activities. There are jet-skis available but if you’re looking for something a little more relaxing we got paddle surfing instead. It’s important to highlight that our beaches are very well connected with access to train, metro and bus. It is very well maintained and it is kept clean all year round. The atmosphere is unbeatable!

One of our most emblematic places is the Pont del Petroli, or Petrol Bridge. It used to serve for the offloading of petrol products from tankers that came to Badalona. However, a few years ago it was converted into a public walkway. Now it’s a popular route for beach strollers and joggers.

Badalona’s rambla is also an amazing place. It’s thriving with cafés, restaurants and local stores and is very much one of the key pieces of the city. Less affected by the mass tourism than its counterpart in Barcelona, the Rambla de Badalona is the main gathering point for locals and is home to some of the best restaurants in town.
