Description from owner
Expensively and extensively renovated, large, quiet flat, 2 minutes' walk from train and bus station in the centre of Girona. Now the train to Barcelona centre takes 37 minutes. Now with Wifi!This flat is an 8 minute walk from the 'old town' of Girona. It is in the so-called 'new' town, which means, where all the amenities and shops are, and 2 minutes walk from the train and bus stations for visiting Barcelona, the coast, or the mountains. Easy walking distance (around the same block!) to shops, cafes, restaurants, public transport. Car hire and taxis nearby. Dishwasher. Important: parking is available but is not included in the price of the rental. We really enjoyed the back terrace - you should put a picture of it on your website. We didn't expect such a comfortable "chill out" zone. (UK) (May 2012)We really enjoyed our trip and the apartment was perfect. Unfortunately one of your towels dropped down from the line so hope that's okay.

(Ireland) (April 2012)Many thanks for the lovely accommodation. We had a lovely time in Girona and enjoyed our stay. Hope to come back again in the future. (April 2012) (France/Switzerland)Dear LisaThank you very much for the use of your lovely apartment. We had a great time. (August 2012) (Wales)Review #8841162 “Our stay in Girona”We had a wonderful stay at this large and modern apartment. The listing description was completely accurate, the photos accurately reflect the appearance and amenities. The property was extremely well cleaned and maintained. The owner was very helpful answering questions and providing local information. She had two binders full of brochures with everything from the best local restaurants to a variety of sightseeing and beach opportunities.Thanks for an amazing stay!I would most definitely recommend this property to anyone! It was within walking distance, 15 min of the heart of Girona's old city. There were wonderful bakeries and a fruit store within a 2 minute walk. We bought our breakfast back to the apartment each morning and made delicious coffee using the fully stocked kitchen. (USA Western NC, July 2014) The apartment was clean, comfortable, cosy and had a really nice vibe. The beds were comfortable, it was really well equipped for me, my husband and our 4 teenage/ young adult children, and there was ample space to relax, eat and everything else. Liza was very helpful in every way, gave us great info on walks and things to do, always got back to us quickly, and was generally a great host. The apartment was in a great area of Girona, with everything you could want in easy reach, but also peaceful and quiet. We especially loved the 2 balconies which were lovely to eat breakfast on, sun and shade when you wanted. Nice cafes, bakery, shops, river, old town, all within easy walking distance. Also a great place to go for getting out to beautiful walking country, medieval towns, volcanos, and lots of info from Liza on all these. We would all thoroughly recommend this as a great place to stay, in a beautiful, not too touristy city, and with a helpful and friendly host. (UK, April 2015)
Liza was just the most fabulous host. From beginning to end. Not only did she make us most welcome, she also provided a wealth of local knowledge and advice. The apartment is lovely and very well equipped. The location is super to enjoy all the wonders of Girona, also very convenient to the train station and all the fast trains. Could not speak more highly of this experience (Australia, May 2015)
The apartment was great - exactly as advertised and really generous size. Liza was fantastic, very easy to deal with and good communication. Highly recommended. (Ireland, July 2015)
Liza was very welcoming and made it easy for us to check in when it suited us. This gave us time to enjoy Toulouse before arriving in Girona. The apartment was amazing. Great size, balconies front and back, lovely kitchen and comfort you would expect at home. We loved it. We loved Girona. We loved everything. Quiet location within quick walking distance of all the sights. Girona is the perfect location to see wonderful sights and eat glorious food!!! (Australia, August 2015)

Location description from owner
The Catalonia region
Girona is 30 kms away from famously beautiful fishing villages and beaches like Llafranc, Calella, Palamos and an hour away is magical Cadaques. In a couple of hours you can be skiing in La Molina or Valtair and still enjoy the vibrant night-life on offer in the animated centre of Girona.
This area is rich in historical monuments and medieval villages, Romanesque and Modernist art and architecture...and don't forget the shopping! Barcelona is 1 hour away by car or train. Many top cyclists train and live around Girona. The weather will never spoil your plans - if it rains, it won't be for long and will give you the chance to rest your feet! Pottery shopping in La Bisbal.
Fancy a trip to Barcelona today? It's a 2 minute walk to the station and 38 minutes by train. Tomorrow you could walk around the City Wall of Girona, 'do' the 'medieval and Jewish quarters', or go to the beach or visit some medieval villages nearby.
You could just leave the flat and dine out in a lovely restaurant, have a drink in a bar or on 'the Rambla', 10 minutes away. In your street you have a restaurant, 2 cafes, and 2 bakers.

“Excellent Base for fantastic cycling around Girona”
We are just back from a 4 night stay in Girona in this lovely apartment. It is fantastically located a short walk from the beautiful old town with plenty of bars and restaurants nearby. The apartment easily fitted our group of 5 men and our bikes. It is kitted out to a very hight spec and is fantastic value. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a break in Girona which is a beautiful City and the area also provides miles and miles of beautiful cycling. We will definitely be back.
Owner's reply: Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate the 5-day cycling itinerary you gave us and we've put it on our gironalet website recommendations. I look forward to seeing you all again.
