About Shelley Hill

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

Why Shelley Hill chose Girona City

This is the most sought after location in Girona. It is a 5 min. walk to the Old Town (truly), 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. And the views are splendid all year long.

What makes this apartment unique

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 and breathtaking views, the whole experience is truly unforgettable. I have a very high percentage of return guests -- be sure to read their reviews of my property!

Dear Shelly, I was going to write a review about the wonderful time we had at the roof top terrace apartment this past summer, but your past reviews said it all!!! I just can add that there is not a better place to relax, have a glass of wine, enjoy the view, and hear the church bells ring over and over again!!!! We can't wait to be back. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us, that was the best part of our trip!!

As one of the youngest guests Shelly has had in the lofts (22), I can say I stayed there and loved every moment of my time in Girona. The loft was an easy 5 minute walk to the cathedral and the center of oldtown, the most beautiful part of Girona with all the museums and sights suggested to me by the owner Shelly. It is a really walking friendly city. There are hiking/walking trails 10 minutes up the road into the beautiful hills of San Daniel, and great biking. I found myself cooking in the fully equipt kitchen more often than not, and laying out on the terrace. Having a free laundry facility included was a big plus. It was the perfect getaway in a great location right next to town and easy to take the train into Barcelona, or out to the beach. I will go back as soon as I can!

One of the best!

  • 5 of 5
If you are looking for a stylish, highly comfortable/maintained, elegant & very clean place to stay that is also VFM, you need look no further. Everything is carefully considered for the pleasure of guests, every detail attended to. We were able to enjoy peace & quiet with stunning views that are not generally available in most hotels, B&Bs and rental accommodation when you stay in a city. However! absolutely amazingly, all this is just a few minutes from the beautiful old town of Girona and all it's activities plus shopping, restaurants, bars, museums, etc. etc. (although there is a superb restaurant in Sant Daniel, very near by - CAL DE MON). So, you really get the best of both worlds. Shelly is helpful & approachable without being intrusive and has a vast knowledge of the locality & beyond. I can see why guests return again & again because there is no need to look anywhere else once you have discovered this place. Well done, Shelly and thank you very much!

Very nice oft, very nice host.

  • 5 of 5
Very nice loft in the best part of Girona only 5 minutes down a small hill to the village. Terrific view from the balcony. Very quiet except for the Cathedral bells which you get used to and even enjoy immediately. Kitchen is well equipped and beds are comfortable. Shower is terrific. The whole place has the feel of a New York loft in a small village at the edge of the countryside. Shelley is a delightful person, very helpful. Very highly recommended.

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!

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 (truly!) 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 (truly!) 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.
