Girona, things to do in the city: Girona is a charming small city located 100 km North of Barcelona and one of the richest cities in Spain. Girona has one of the most important mediaeval quarters in Spain, plenty of interesting historical buildings, one of the best-preserved old Jewish quarters in Europe and a magnificent Cathedral featuring the widest Gothic nave in the world with a breadth of 22 meters. The city also offers a vibrant shopping district with a combination of traditional goods and renowed international brands. The walking areas include plenty of cozy coffees and restaurants that offer a variety of culinary experiences. Girona is also well known for its cultural life. As well as a number of museums, the city has the most important autumn festival in Spain, “Temporada Alta”, offering three months of avant-garde international music, dance and theater. In addition, several jazz, classical, rock, flamenco, traditional or world music concerts are programmed during all the year.
Girona, things to do in the surroundings: Girona is well known to professional and amateur golfers. Only 22 kilometres from the city is the PGA Catalunya Resort, which since its opening in 1999 has quickly gained an impeccable international reputation and is currently ranked 2nd in Spain, 3rd in continental Europe and, most recently, among the 100 best golf courses in the world. As well, there are a further eight high-quality 18-hole golf courses available less than one hour's drive from the property. Girona is also a world famous destination for professional and amateur cyclists. Only a few minutes from Alemanys 5 there is also a vast forest with hundreds of signposted off-road mountain-bike routes which can take you all the way to the coast.
Girona, things to do in the region: Less than one hour's drive from the house you can reach the famous Costa Brava coastal region, with plenty of beaches and sailing ports, still offering some 'hidden gems' for visitors who seek them out. Small villages like Cadaqués, Begur or LLafranc have attracted artists such as Salvador Dalí, Joan Miró or Pablo Picasso and still inspire many contemporary artists. Between Girona and the Costa Brava is the Empordà, a region of countryside, with plenty of small charming medieval villages, as well as wheat and sunflower fields that bloom with poppies in spring, creating one of the most beautiful landscapes of Spain. Girona is also a renowned culinary destination. Home of exquisite “sea and mountain mixed” recipes, the city hosts “El Celler de Can Roca” ranked second best restaurant in the world.

we spent a week in 'el jardin' apartment and found our every need catered for. We were met on arrival and informed of all of the amenities. The apartment was in the old town in a perfect location close to the cathedral but away from the main tourist streets. All rooms offered air conditioning and fans and the master bedroom opened up to the terrace. The apartment was quiet and spacious and contained everything you might need for a holiday. The highlight was the rain water pool which is so unusual for a city apartment. After a day of sightseeing it was incredibly refreshing to cool down in the pool which is actually bigger than the depiction in the photos. We couldn't recommend this apartment enough and will certainly be back as Gerona is a fabulous city.
I stayed in the El Jardi apartment for 4 nights and my only regret is that I had to leave! What a work of art! The details abound everywhere. At the same time, it could not have been more comfortable. Everything you needed was there... A well equipped kitchen, plenty of towels and comfortable beds with lovely bedding... And plenty of storage for all your belongings. This is a well run and very professional team. It is located just around the corner from the Cathedral, so you need to be able to climb the old maze of stone steps to get "home" each day. You can do it, just stop along the way for a drink or just to pause if necessary... believe me it is a charming walk and more than worth the heightened heart rate! I have only one regret and that is that I had to say goodbye to Montse, Alemanys5 and beautiful Girona... Thank you, Juan Miguel and Anna for providing me this beautiful memory.
Everything about this property was perfect for us and our two teenagers. Location, decor, facilities. We loved being able to walk everywhere for sightseeing and pop back to the delightful walled garden for a rest and a dip to cool down. We re already planning our next visit. Highly recommended.
I had a lovely stay in Girona, its a wonderful city. We travelled to the coast one day and also to Figures for the Dali museum which was wonderful. I have been to Barcelona but I do prefer the relaxed atmosphere in Girona. It has lovely shops, lots of culture and very friendly people. The old part of the city is spectacular with its lovely streets and ancient architecture.
As for your apartment, what can I say other than it was the most fantastic apartment in a superb location. I am very much into design and I must say Anna has designed a beautiful home and I am very jealous not to have such a wonderful home in Ireland!
It was a pleasure to stay in and it had everything I could ask for, a well stocked kitchen, ipod dock, TV & DVD, wifi, great mood lighting, very comfortable bed and a lift for shopping!
I want to thank you for letting me stay in your property and enjoy Girona. Myself and my girlfriend wish to return again (possibly for a weekend break at the start of next year as she wants to go shopping) so I will be in touch as I feel that your apartment has much more to offer than a hotel.
I am more than delighted to recommend your apartment to anyone wishing to visit Girona and surrounding area. You were excellent with communication before and after so once again thank you for all your help.
Cet appartement est tout simplement magnifique. Nous louons régulièrement des appartements en Europe et celui-ci a été notre coup de cœur.
La description de l’appartement et les photos décrivent très bien l’appartement qui était très propre et très bien équipé. La piscine et le jardin offre un espace supplémentaire pour se détendre et profiter de l’extérieur en toute quiétude.
L’appartement est très bien situé puisqu’il se situe à proximité de plusieurs restaurants, cafés, magasins et jardins. Nous avons adoré sortir tous les soirs sans devoir prendre la voiture.
L’accueil est chaleureux, les propriétaires parlent très bien français et sont faciles à rejoindre.
Nous recommandons cet appartement sans hésitation.
All you can say about the apartment has already been written by the preceding reviews that I totally confirm!
I never stayed in a better holiday apartment and will definitely rent it again if I come back to Girona. So, don't hesitate to chose this flat!
