I am an artist and contractor/decorator originally from St. Helena, CA. I moved to Girona 16 years ago. I have also lived 3 yrs. in NYC, where I photographed home interiors for Maison Jardin and Vogue Internationale and 14 years in Rome, Italy. I have always been an art photographer but now I also enjoy painting, printmaking and videography.

My daughter is a talented Industrial/Product designer, also living here in Girona.

I love to travel, hike, practice Tai Chi and Qi Qong, read, cook, and ride my bike, which is also a daily form of transportation for me.

I´m a people person and enjoy the opportunity vacation rentals bring to make new acquaintances and often friends.

Shelley Hill purchased this apartment in 2008

This is the most sought after location in Girona. It is a 5 min. walk to the Old Town, but also in the other direction, a short walk to the most beautiful countryside and mountain paths and forests. Sant Daniel is living in the peaceful countryside while being minutes from downtown shopping and night life in Girona! Believe me when I say that it is always a challenge to sleep in the Old Town due to the noisy nightlife and even the proximity to the church bells! I lived in the Old Town for 10 years and loved it too, but it really is so, so much quieter and peaceful here in Sant Daniel.

It is great to be able to walk just minutes to some of Girona´s best restaurants, bakeries, ice cream and organic yogurt shops and cafés. You can enjoy a typical Catalan breakfast of fresh orange juice, café con leche, toasted farm bread with olive oil, jamón or manchego and/or pastry in one of my favorite bars outdoors in a pedestrian plaza just 3 min. from home. The loft is wonderful in it´s own right, but combined with the amazing location, the whole experience will be truly unforgettable.

FABULOUS STAY IN A FABULOUS LOFT

  • 5 of 5
What a magical place Girona is and what a perfect apartment Shelley's loft was! The rooms were even more spacious than the photographs suggest, the views as beautiful as described, and the short walk to town really short. What's not fully captured in the description, though, is the birdsong that goes along with the views and the beauty of that walk into town: down a winding cobblestone road lined by cypress trees which leads to a small square and a Romanesque church that's now the Archaeological Museum.

Shelley also was a perfect host, providing great suggestions for restaurants, museums and outings—and she graciously adjusted her day when our flight to Barcelona was hours late. We'd go back in a heartbeat just to sit once more on the terrace!

AN AVID HISTORY BUFF AND ROAD BICYCLIST

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in the uppermost apartment in Shelley's building. Airy with beautiful views of the oldest part of Girona. A 10 minute walk to the City Center giving a visitor easy access to shopping, museums and cafes. I also found it a quiet place to stay.

I highly recommend this airy apartment with its views. The visitor information supplied by Shelley was very helpful to gain a foothold in terms of groceries, restaurants and historical landmarks.

Excellent uncrowded and beautiful bicycling was easily accessed. A car was not needed.
Thanks for a great place to stay!

SPECTACULAR VIEW!

  • 5 of 5
I stayed in this wonderful loft apartment for two weeks in August (I had tried to rent it for five weeks, but it was unavailable--I sure wish I could have stayed there the entire time). The apartment is well appointed with everything you could need. The owner was extremely interested in my comfort and satisfaction. I felt very comfortable here, and just loved the rooftop terrace with its spectacular views of the city of Girona. Magical!!

PEACEFUL, SERENE AND BEAUTIFUL

  • 5 of 5
It's funny how things turn out and when I planned a trip to Spain, Girona was not on my radar. But in my use of the vrbo website, I stumbled upon a magnificent find in Girona, this loft and I recommend it highly. Girona is a destination for the active minded, the foodie inclined and the person who loves culture and beauty. The loft at St. Daniel is the perfect backdrop for this setting in every way. Not only is the place well equipped with everything you need, the view off the terrace is very special, peaceful and a place to just lay around and take it all in. I spent much time both during the day and in the evening enjoying the tranquility and comfort of the terrace - perfect with a glass of wine to watch the moon sail over the catedral across the way.
Shelley has done an exceptional job of making the loft a comfortable place to be. She has sitting areas that are comfortable and attractive and her artistic touches are special. The kitchen is well set up and modern. The showers, one in and one on the the terrace, have the best water pressure I've known in Europe.
I could go on and on. Thanks to Shelley not only for a gorgeous and special dwelling, but also for your hospitality and communication before and during our visit. I believe she goes above and beyond to ensure her guests are happily satisfied. A gem, so stay there!

MAGICAL AND PRACTICAL

  • 5 of 5
Myself, my husband , and 8 year old son stayed in Shelley's. I can't say enough about the experience we had in Shelley's studio apartment. Shelley has everything you need and more to be happy and comfortable. We used the kitchen on a regular basis and it was well equipped. The beds were comfortable and the bath was very nice. BUT MORE than that, Shelley's place has a certain magic related to the gorgeous views and over-sized deck equipped with tables, chairs, and even beds (we even slept outside one night!). Girona is beautiful and within comfortable driving distance to many great beaches, vineyards, mountains, and villages and much more. And Shelley is an attentive host, spending time with her guests, sharing her knowledge, and helping everyone get the best out of their holiday. Do not hesitate, stay at this place. You will not regret it.

FANTASTIC LOFT APARTMENT IN BEAUTIFUL SETTING

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at Shelley's loft apartment. It has been designed and decorated beautifully and uniquely, in a very peaceful setting. The large terrace overlooks the mountains and cathedral, views we shall never forget - photos do not do it justice!

The apartment is in a perfect location, a short walk to the Old Town, where we loved to explore, and in the opposite direction - great mountain walks with more beautiful views.

We shall return one day, we loved staying here for the perfect mix of sightseeing and peacefulness.

My property is located in the most prestigious area of Girona, the Valley of Sant Daniel, just minutes behind the Girona Cathedral. A 5 min. walk to the west along the river and you arrive in the heart of Girona´s medieval old town and the Cathedral, featuring many restaurants, outdoor cafes, shops, cinemas and even our Sunset Jazz Club. A 5 min. walk to the east along the river, and you come to the XI century Monastery of Sant Daniel, beautifully restored and home to nuns of the Benedictine order. Another 5 min. walking and you enter the beautiful countryside and mountain of Sant Daniel, with paths for walking, hiking, mountain biking and picnics. There are steep rock paths to mild walking paths, leading to fabulous viewpoints, castle and fort. There are also restaurants for enjoying typical Catalan cuisine and grilled meats. It is amazing that this is all available in just minutes from old town Girona!

Notes:
The modern kitchen and island are open to the dining area, allowing for guests to relax around the island and even help in food prep. Both share truly spectacular views through the magnificent sliding glass doors to the balcony, to the green gardens of the Girona Cathedral. The bathroom is also very large, with separate toilet room, very large walk in shower, and large sink and counter area. 5 people can easily be in the bathroom at the same time, attending to different functions! There is also plenty of storage. The views from every window of the loft apartment are sublime. This loft is a first floor walk up, no elevator. The 100 m2 terrace is on the 3rd floor and has 2 large tables, plenty of chairs, a Weber bbq and built in sink, faucet and shower and most importantly, the most spectacular views of the Cathedral, the Sant Feliu church, nearby mountain ranges and on a clear day, the Pyrenees.
