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.
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.
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!
