Days for a great break in the historical centre of a small pretty city!
The apartment is in the heart of the old town, on a privileged locations: in one of the most known streets of the town, with nice and special shops around (ever heart of a shop selling angels or Roman armor??)
The place is well insulated, with double glace to prevent any noise coming from the street below. As the town is closed to the cars of non residents, the traffic is really low- good life quality! And as I live on the apartment below your you won't have parties every night (or you'll be one in it! :) )
The apartment is very simple: a living room with a sofa-bed and a small but well equipped kitchen, and another room with the bedroom. It doesn't feel small as the ceiling is very high, and there is good light and sun coming from the street.
The bed-room can be perfectly closed so no light comes in if you need absolute darkness to sleep. The apartment has air conditioning with a heat pump so you'll have the right temperature all year.
The kitchen, working on electric: vitro-ceramic cooks, and microwave. Also a fridge of course.
The bathroom is small but very comfortable: as the hot water comes from a gas heater, you will never miss a good shower.
A very nice part is the balcony on the street- see the picture of the small train (fake) passing by. With the small table, you'll have the perfect place for a cup of tea- or wine.
As you can see in the pictures, the decoration tries to match the ceramic original tiles on the floor (some 80 years old). We have tried to make it simple and elegant.
We have recently added a washing machine in a small room on the entrance, that you can use free of charge.
Neighbours: the building has 4 floor. Above yours, a nice guy that grows tomatoes on the roof. In front, the other apartment to rent but there are two doors in between so you'll hardly hear anything. And below yours, my own apartment.
The apartment has recently been renovated, and the builing was made by a famous local architect, Rafel Maso. It has its museum two doors away, but unfortunately our building has only a few details on Maso style.
As the apartment is just in the city centre, everything is there: restaurants, take away food, supermarkets, museums... and of course the cathedrals, les Rambles... Actually I have a blog with my recommendations of Girona- I can't write the web address in there, but you'll have it when you book.
Girona is a small city so it takes less than 20 minutes to get anywhere from the centre: the train station is about 20 minutes walk.
There is no transit behind the apartment, apart from birds passing by.
As we want the things to be really easy, you may check in as late as you need as the apartment lock works with a code. Also, you may check out late if there is no booking for the same day.
Girona is a city that call for long walks, for quiet evenings with a glass of wine, or maybe for a theatre or music night? Also, at it is very safe, you can walk until late at night, by the old wall, by the river...
There a good number of occasions to visit Girona: Girona temps de flors, when all the city is dressed with flowers, or by Easter, with the Processó de Setmana Santa. Also Fires by end octuber (thou it may be a bit crowded).
There is a very nice bar downstairs, and they'll let you pick your order upstairs and enjoy it at the apartment.
You won't find a nicest place in Girona. Also, as I am a private owner I can keep the price very reasonable.
Please contact me if you plan a long stay during low season. We already have had a writer and a journalist with good inspiration!
The area is full of shops and restaurants. For instance, a great home-made pizza shop to take away. Or just below, the romantic bar La Terra with friendly people and friendly hamburguers.
If you like shopping, carrer Santa Clara and Plaça Catalunya are just around the area, with plenty of shops of literally anything.
Plaça Indendencia, just across the river, has the best offer on restaurants: from japonese, italian, new catalan cuisine... and the best deal: Restaurant Lloret, 3 courses for 12€.
If you like walking, we are in the heart of the Barri Vell, the Old Town. The ancient city wall (Muralla) surrounds the area, and there are plenty of gardens, small alleys, hidden treasures to discover.
