Can Vespa - Condo in the Heart of the Old Quarter

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We finished 8 days at Can Vespa last week and had an outstanding stay. The apartment is as pictured and well equipped. Brigit and her son were there to meet us and gave us a warm greetings with a bottle of lovely local wine.

The location of the flat is super as it is just steps away from the heart of old Girona.

We thoroughly enjoyed our accommodations and will recommend it to others. Parking was not an issue as there is a public lot just outside the city walls. It is a bit of a hike, but for us the location is well worth it. Old Girona is a pedestrian city and most attractions are within an easy 2-10 minutes.

Wonderful stay in Girona

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five which included our daughter, son-in-law and grandson aged one year stayed in Can Vespa for eight nights. We had a wonderful experience here in every way. The apartment was beautiful, child friendly, centrally located, spacious, and well equipped. We felt welcomed the moment we met Brigit who went out of her way to accommodate our grandson with a crib, high chair, and even her own childrens' own outgrown, age appropriate toys.

She was also exceedingly helpful in orienting us to Girona, sharing recommendations and even provided a sling when our daughter hurt her


We would recommend this beautiful apartment to anyone visiting Girona and hope that we can visit again someday.

Great place in a fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Brigit & Jaume’s apartment for 3 nights and loved it. They are wonderful hosts and live in the same building on another floor.

The apartment is in the heart of the old city and steps away from the La Fabrica coffee shop (a very popular and good one). There are also plenty of nice shops & restaurants within walking distance. The apartment was quite spacious with plenty of room for the four of us. It has a very nice outside porch to enjoy your morning coffee. The apartment is not located on an actual street but mid-way up a large set of stairs. It’s very convenient but you must be prepared to climb stairs. Since Girona is built into a hill, stairs are quite common. The parking area is a few hundred meters away and was free.

We really enjoyed Brigit & Jaume’s apartment and highly recommend it for those visiting Girona.

Great Home, Lovely Owners, Super Location

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home at the last minute and were warmly received by its lovely owners. Brigit helped us organize some of our activies and even researched how to shuttle our bikes to Olot so that we could enjoy the Via Verde back to Girona.

The home is really well located in the old quarter and within walking distance of everything you want to see and do and eat. It is quiet and comfortable, well furnished and appointed. It is a 15 minute walk to the train station, so carless daytrips to Figueres (Dalí Museum) and other surrounding areas are easy.

We were travelling by bike. The apartment has a great storage spot for bikes. Just down the stairs from the apartment is a great cyclist filled coffee shop, so if cycling is your thing, this is the place to stay.

Great times at Can Vespa

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed here for around 10 days in April. The location of the apartment is excellent. Very easy to get to and from the train station. We walked with our luggage from the train station to the apartment and had very few issues navigating our way there. The reason for our vacation was to do some sight seeing and for me to do some cycling. The city of Girona is amazing. So much history and things to see. The apartment is a 3 minute walk to Bike Breaks where I was able to rent a bike for the few days that I was going to ride and I was able to get good route information from them. The cycling around Girona is amazing and it is no wonder many professionals call it home. We also really enjoyed that La Fabrica was located at the bottom of the steps when you leave the apartment. For those who don't know, La Fabrica is a coffee shop owned by a recently retired Canadian pro cyclist and his wife. I could not find a better cortado during my time in Spain. As for more info about the apartment, it is huge! We travelled with our 4 year old son and he had so much room to play and run around, even a few games of mini sticks were played inside and out on the patio. There was even some children's toys supplied with the apartment which was nice because we didn't bring a whole bunch from home. The bathroom is great with a good shower and a nice heated towel bar. The bedrooms are quite large as well. The one bedroom had two single beds in it which were not very comfortable beds but we didn't need to sleep on them. The outdoor patio was a great place to unwind and read and enjoy a nice beverage after a long day of walking around or cycling through the mountains.

The apartment had everything we needed for preparing meals and eating in. Spain's late night eating didn't always work out that great with our little guy so a lot of meals we had in the apartment. There is a small Spar grocery store located about 2 minutes away and we also shopped at one of the local farmer's markets which has a great selection of fruits and vegetables at much cheaper prices than the grocery store. The market is only held two times a week I think.

Brigit and her husband were great hosts and a wealth of information if you needed it. They welcomed us with a nice bottle of wine that we enjoyed greatly.

The next time I go to Girona I would stay here again. Not sure when that will be, but there is more cycling that I would like to do and I hope that Can Vespa is still around. It is just that great.

Wonderful month-long stay at Can Vespa

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home from a month-long stay at Can Vespa in Girona. We were in Girona for work and this place was perfect for our family. The apartment is beautiful, huge, historic and in an incredible location. Brigit was easy to work with as we prepared for our trip and was helpful with anything we needed during our stay. For Europe, this place is incredibly large. Huge bathroom, living space, dining area, and a large bedroom. The kitchen is a little small, but still has everything you need to cook at home. The highlight for sure is the patio/terrace, which stretches the entire length of the apartment. The location is also perfect, steps from La Fabrica coffee shop, and 2 minute walk to the Spar grocery store. We plan to be back next year!
