About this location
The Catalunia region
Less than one hour's drive from the house you can reach the famous Costa Brava coastal region, with plenty of beaches and sailing ports, still offering some "hidden gems" for visitors who seek them out. Small villages like Cadaqués, Begur or LLafranc have attracted artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró or Pablo Picasso and still inspire many contemporary artists.
Between Girona and the Costa Brava is the Empordà, a region of countryside, with plenty of small charming medieval villages, as well as wheat and sunflower fields that bloom with poppies in spring, creating one of the most beautiful landscapes of Spain.
Girona is well known to professional and amateur golfers. Only 22 kilometres from the city is the PGA Catalunya Resort, which since its opening in 1999 has quickly gained an impeccable international reputation and is currently ranked 2nd in Spain, 3rd in continental Europe and, most recently, among the 100 best golf courses in the world. As well, there are a further eight high-quality 18-hole golf courses available less than one hour's drive from the property.
Girona is also a world famous destination for professional and amateur cyclists. Lance Armstrong lived and trained in Girona while winning seven consecutive “Tour de France”, and his key domestique, also a former US champion, has been a distinguished guest of our property.
Only a few minutes from Alemanys 5 there is also a vast forest with hundreds of signposted off-road mountain-bike routes which can take you all the way to the coast.
Girona is a charming small city located 100 km North of Barcelona and 100 km South of Perpignan (France).
It is one of the richest cities in Spain. Girona has his own International Airport offering regular flights to more than 50 cities around Europe. By the end of 2012 Girona will be a stop of the high-speed train that is to link Barcelona and Paris.
Girona has one of the most important mediaeval quarters in Spain, plenty of interesting historical buildings, one of the best-preserved old Jewish quarters in Europe and a magnificent Cathedral featuring the widest Gothic nave in the world with a breadth of 22 meters.
The city also offers a vibrant shopping district with a combination of traditional goods and renowed international brands. The walking areas include plenty of cozy coffees and restaurants that offer a variety of culinary experiences.
Girona is also well known for its cultural life. As well as a number of museums, the city has the most important autumn festival in Spain, “Temporada Alta”, offering three months of avant-garde international music, dance and theater. In addition, several jazz, classical, rock, flamenco, traditional or world music concerts are programmed during all the year.
Furthermore, the relatively small size of the city and its urban structure means all these activities can be enjoyed without having to take the car.
Girona is also a renowned culinary destination. Home of exquisite “sea and mountain” recipes, the city hosts “El Celler de Can Roca” ranked second best restaurant in the world. Several Michelin starred restaurants are less than one hour's drive from the property.
During wintertime, a good option is to take advantage of the Pyrenees ski resorts that can be reached by car in less than two hours. The Girona area is also renowed as a wellness and spa destination, offering top quality thermal baths, spa and wellness centres.
Last but not least, the city of Barcelona is only at one-hour by road or train from Girona.

"Perfect blend of modern and ancient in Girona's Old Town."
Perfect remodel in a perfect location. Great rooms, splendid views, and nice indoor/outdoor space; you can actually roll the kitchen table, which seats eight, out onto the covered patio. Don't need a car; take the train and cab. Allow at least three full days to explore the old town. Upstairs unit's second and third bedroom are best for one adult each. Lots of common space upstairs if rent both units.

"The Perfect Place to Stay for 5+ Cyclists"
This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Girona. We were 5 cyclists who rented the complete house (two separate apartments) so that we each had our own bedroom. It is an ideal location right in the center of Girona with all modern amenities included even though the house is in the old city and inside an old stone building. The attention to detail and the finishing inside the house was phenomenal. We enjoyed the outdoor decks and the plunge pool as well as the audio and TV surround sound system.
Juan's help with the booking and with transportation were great and the housekeeper that met us was very helpful. She even drove us to the train station on our last day. I would recommend this accommodation to anybody visiting Girona. It is where we will be staying when we visit Girona next time.
