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 am also a painter, printmaker, sculptor and videographer.
I love to travel, 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 (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 much quieter and peaceful here in Sant Daniel. And the views are splendid all year long.
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!
We based our third road bike trip in Spain out of the lovely Lofts Sant Daniel and wished we could have stayed longer. From the fantastic views and perfect location, to the beautiful art work and sculptures(best nightlights ever!), and a well equipped kitchen; Shelley's loft exceeded all our expectations. Girona is a fascinating city(best explored by foot and the Loft location makes it easy to walk everywhere). There is great road cycling in all directions, and a week was not nearly enough to thoroughly explore both Girona and the Costa Brava.
Shelley is a fantastic host: helpful but not intrusive. We would love to return and spend a month.
We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Shelley's. Girona is a beautiful city and Shelley's loft is just steps away from the cobbled streets of the old city. The loft is beautiful and bright with the morning sun streaming in the windows. We were there primarily for the road cycling and we were not disappointed. Never have we cycled on roads where the motorists were so respectful and accommodating. Girona and it's surrounding roads are cycling heaven. Shelley was attentive and very helpful. I would not hesitate to recommend my friends and family stay here and we are sure to return to Shelley's loft as well.
We loved everything about this place; owner has a beautiful esthetic that permeates the unit. We were three artist/architects and this loft checked all the boxes. Well equipped kitchen, large comfortable dining area; a single private bedroom and a second full bed in the primary living space. Worked fine for a couple + a friend. Used loft as a base for exploring Girona on foot (sights start right outside the front door) and provided easy, convenient parking to allow runs to the coast.
Shelley is a pro; lots of info for travelers in the loft and personal recommendations in the neighborhood revealed several winners. She was away but we felt her presence in the unit; her support staff was excellent. Any return to Catalonia will include a return!
My husband and I spent a wonderful week in the 1st floor loft and agree that it was one of the best rentals we've ever stayed in...just perfect! Such a comfortable spacious place with everything you could possibly need.
It's in an ideal location...near enough to town (less than 5 mins walk), yet away from it all for peace and quiet.
The views from the balcony and the roof terrace are amazing - the valley is lush and green and you could never tire of the hourly bell ringing from the impressive cathedral. Shelley is a perfect host - extremely helpful and friendly. We are already planning our return! Thanks for a fabulous week!
We stayed in the 3rd floor loft with the large rooftop terrace. The apartment was well equipped and a nice size for a couple. The location was just what we were looking for, quiet but close to everything we need. The trail and ravine across the road was easy access to hiking and was a great view from the terrace. Shelley went out of her way to make sure our stay was enjoyable. We will be back!!
It's all been said already, really. This is just a fantastic spot to stay if you're visiting Girona. We had six nights in the apartment and it was just perfect for our needs. We had a car so we could visit the nearby area and we always found parking close by. When we wanted to go into the centre of Girona, that was only a short walk away. Shelley is the perfect host and the apartment is really comfortable and relaxing, There are a few stairs to climb (not many) and street access is steep, so it won't suit everyone but it was perfect for us. Thanks for a fantastic 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!
