Simple but charming flat in ideal location

5 of 5
Elisabeth's Home Away flat on the very edge of the beautiful historic centre of Girona has everything necessary and nothing superfluous to requirements. We loved our base for two nights and as we were just my sister and I we had plenty of space to spread out and were happy to make and eat our simple meals in the kitchen; although Elisabeth also supplied some good shopping/visiting/ice cream tips! Thank you.

We loved our stay in Mili and Enric's apartment. The place is as described with towels, fully equipped kitchen and in our case, we were met at the station and driven to the apartment which was such a nice touch. Couldn't have asked for more and would definitely go back. Girona is also a lovely city and the apartment was a great base for exploring the old town from its heart.
