About Karen Peirson

Your English host, Karen, lives 30 minutes away in the Gavarres hills behind Girona. I enjoy everything to do with food - growing, cooking and eating - so Catalonia is my perfect place to live! My home is a small farmhouse, but I love renovating properties in Girona and this apartment is a labour of love. I enjoy meeting people from around the world and sharing our beautiful city with them.

Karen Peirson purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Karen Peirson chose Costa Brava - Girona

Although the exterior of this building looks a little tired, I have enjoyed bringing the inside of this apartment to life again, making the most of the lovely views over the river. It is furnished to a high standard, with everything that is needed for short and long term stays in the city. With double glazing and a one way street in front of the apartment it is also amazingly peaceful for a city centre apartment. Shading trees and breezes up the river mean it is never too hot in the Summer and so fans are enough to enjoy August stays. Excellent central heating means warm winter stays.

What makes this apartment unique

Fully equipped apartment in a great location close to the centre of the city. Great spot for both Summer and Winter stays on the Costa Brava. English speaking owner can respond quickly to questions about your stay and the surrounding area

Great location and plenty of room

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is located within easy walking distance of all the important historic sites, restaurants, churches, etc. It's also an easy 30 drive to the Costa Brava beaches. With three bedrooms and a kitchen we could actually cook in, the apartment was well suited for our family of six. The little shaded patio area was perfect for coffee in the a.m. Rent this apartment and please take care of it because we definitely plan to come back! D. Willard, Texas, USA

Très agréable

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est très mignon, décoré avec goût et très propre. Il y a de quoi débuter son séjour : sel, poivre, produits ménagers, etc. C'est très appréciable. Le quartier juif et la cathédrale sont à 5 minutes à pieds. Excellente localisation.

would really recommend. location is perfect.

  • 4 of 5

Dear all,

the location is just perfect, walking distance from city center.

Parking spaces in Girona it has been always difficult, but must say the majority of the times we have been lucky and got a parking space in the same street max. 5 minutes walking distance.

The flat was tidy and clean, big enough for 4 people. bathroom bit small. Internet connection quick and smoothy.

The connection with the landlady was only on the first day, that means everything went perfect because we had no issues at all. She was very well prepared and explained and recommended us some things to do and visit, and she was extremelly friendly.

I would really recommend the flat and certainly if I would like to book it again.

Girona has everything. the old town it has been renovated, narrow streets, hidden paths bringing you to little restaurants, shops, museums, etc.

Being not in city center is as well an advantage as you can drive quicker out from the town direction coast, Pirineus, etc.

Appartement très sympathique

  • 5 of 5

Appartement très sympathique, bien agencé, avec tout ce dont on a besoin pour passer de bonnes v acances.Facile de se garer à proximité de l'appartement.

Situé dans un immeuble populaire, il est à deux pas de la vieille ville et cela nous a permis de faire des balades sans prendre la voiture.

Le seul truc : pensez à prendre des boules Quies car parfois on entend les voisins...qui se couchent tard.

Owner's Response: Un grand merci pour vos aimables paroles dans le livre des visiteurs et ici à l'examen. Vous étiez invités parfaits aussi! Je comprends la question du bruit tard dans la nuit. fois espagnoles sont différentes en Europe du Nord - manger, travailler et dormir. Cependant, je n'espère que vous avez apprécié faire partie de la vie catalane plutôt que dans un complexe touristique. Ils sont un groupe très sympathique! J'espère te revoir bientôt. Karen Many thanks for your kind words in the visitors book and here in the review. You were perfect guests too! I do understand the issue of noise later at night. Spanish times are different to Northern Europe - eating, working & sleeping. However, I do hope you enjoyed being part of Catalan life rather than in a holiday maker's complex. They are a very friendly bunch! Hope to see you again soon. Karen

Additional information about rental rates

Fees No additional mandatory fees
Refundable damage deposit $217.89
Stay tax $0.49 per night, per person. This amount will be due to the owner upon arrival. Does not apply to children under 18 years.

I do not charge a cleaning fee for staying in my home and try to be as flexible as possible with arrival and leaving dates. I hope that guests respect this trust and leave the apartment as they found it. When they leave they should throw away rubbish in the containers over the road, shut windows, switch off lights, lock up with one set of keys and put them in the post box downstairs. In this way we can keep costs to the minimum and both enjoy the experience of your stay.

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date.
  • 100% refund if canceled at least 30 days before arrival date.
