Overview

About the property

Days for a great break in the historical centre of a small pretty city!

The apartment is in the heart of the old town, on a privileged location: right in front of the riverside. So you'll see the birds fishing in the morning, and the sun sets will just be yours, on a huge 4 meters wide window on the river.

In addition to the views, the silence is one of the pros of the apartment; the river is very quiet, and as I live on the apartment below your you won't have parties every night (or you'll be one in it! :) )

The place has one big room; on one side the bed, very comfortable and wide, and on the other the sofa-bed and the computer. It doesn't feel small as the ceiling is very high, and a nice (sort of) Japanese wall separates the two parts.

This room can be perfectly closed so no light comes in if you need absolute darkness to sleep. This room has air conditioning and central heating, and also a couple of fans if you are not friend of a.c.

Next to this room, the huge gallery has this views on the river: some 4 meters wide windows, with the typical Mediterranean blinds, painted in blue. Over there you have a small kitchen, working on electric: vitro-ceramic cooks, and microwave. Also a fridge of course.

The bathroom is small but very comfortable: as the hot water comes from a gas heater, you will never miss a good shower.

As you can see in the pictures, the decoration is spare so you won't be disturbed, and the parquet flooring makes it very worm and cosy. We have tried to make it simple and elegant.

We have recently added a washing machine in a small room on the entrance, that you can use free of charge.

Neighbours: the building has 4 floor. Above yours, a nice guy that grows tomatoes on the roof. In front, the other apartment to rent but there are two doors in between so you'll hardly hear anything. And below yours, my own apartment.

The basement of the building is a nice bar called La Terra, but no music comes through (I am very sensitive to ambiance music!)

The apartment has recently been renovated, and the builing was made by a famous local architect, Rafel Maso. It has its museum two doors away, but unfortunately our building has only a few details on Maso style.

As the apartment is just in the city centre, everything is there: restaurants, take away food, supermarkets, museums... and of course the cathedrals, les Rambles... Actually I have a blog with my recommendations of Girona- I can't write the web address in there, but you'll have it when you book.

Girona is a small city so it takes less than 20 minutes to get anywhere from the centre: the train station is about 20 minutes walk.

There is no transit behind the apartment, apart from birds passing by.

As we want the things to be really easy, you may check in as late as you need as the apartment lock works with a code. Also, you may check out late if there is no booking for the same day.

Girona is a city that call for long walks, for quiet evenings with a glass of wine, or maybe for a theatre or music night? Also, at it is very safe, you can walk until late at night, by the old wall, by the river...

There a good number of occasions to visit Girona: Girona temps de flors, when all the city is dressed with flowers, or by Easter, with the Processó de Setmana Santa. Also Fires by end octuber (thou it may be a bit crowded).

There is a very nice bar downstairs, and they'll let you pick your order upstairs and enjoy it at the apartment.

You won't find a nicest place in Girona. Also, as I am a private owner I can keep the price very reasonable.

Please contact me if you plan a long stay during low season. I am very open to long stays. We already have had a writer and a journalist with good inspiration!

House rules:

Smoking: please smoke only on the gallery, with windows open. That will prevent the smell of the smoke to invade the clothes.

Music: please keep it reasonable at all times, as the whole neighbourhood is very silent.

Rubbish: it can be left outside the building after 8pm.

Computer: you will have a computer for you, with ubuntu installed.

If you use the washing machine, as clothes are dried outside make double sure they don't fall into the river!

It is very nice if you can leave the apartment reasonably clean, as we don't charge any cleaning fee. We'll clean it better after you leave, but it helps.

This apartment is legally registered with the code H11GT00121

About David Lloret

I did a PhD in computers, and now I have a yoga center in Girona. As I travel often, I try to provide the same thing I like when I am away: security in the booking, clear prices, relaxed atmosphere and a great apartment.

David Lloret purchased this apartment in 2003

Why David Lloret chose Girona

This is one of the best point in Girona: in the middle of the Old Town, at the same time very relaxed and with views on the river. A magic place.

What makes this apartment unique

As I walked in, I could see the light from the river reflecting on the wall. I thought, I have to live here.

Actually I live in the apartment below the one I rent.

Très bien situé centre historique

  • 5 of 5

Appartement agréable propre sur la rivière à au milieu des maisons colorées si typiques vue imprenable sur les passerelles les canards et mouettes!!!

Tout bien explique par le proprietaire pas de contact direct sur place mais réactif par mail

Un peu sportif pour décharger les bagages mais centre historique oblige! !! Et puis parking gratuit à 8 mn à pied vous oubliez la voiture pendant tout le séjour tout est très proche de l appartement

Des tas de restos toutes les commodités nous avons apprécié le marché à 10 minutes qui permet de se ravitailler en produits frais

Nous avons eu un coup de coeur pour cette jolie ville et cette location nous a bien convenu
