It is well equipped, comfortable and very pleasant to relax in with the french doors open in the living area and a view overlooking the activities in the square below. The bed was comfortable and the linens, and whole apartment, spotlessly clean. There's a quick lift up to the apartment which is on the third floor. An added bonus is the underground parking just a few steps away. Yes, it's a confined turning area into/out of the car park entrance, but perfectly manageable. The delightful owners were near the apartment to greet us as arranged and to help us into the parking area. Quite useful to have a satnav to get to the apartment area. A really excellent place to stay, we highly recommend to others looking for somewhere in Girona.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We stayed here over the New Years period for 4 nights - a group of 8 (4 couples). It was perfect in every way! Even though it was December/January we still caught the sun on the terrace and had a leisurely breakfast outside every morning with stunning views of Girona. Perhaps it's not quite clear from the pictures but the lounge area is huge and really great for relaxing after a day of walking around Girona (we pulled all four sofas together so we could all sit together in the evening). There is a dining room/table for evening meals. All the 4 bedrooms are really spacious and there was extra blankets for chilly nights. I can imagine this is an amazing place to rent in the summer - the pool looked incredibly inviting but it was too cold this time of year. I recommend taking a morning walk around the local area (there is a nature trail... if you turn right out of villa and follow the Carrer Torre de Sant Narcís it will turn into a track which will take you back around to a road and from there back to villa). Also there is a mountain to the left of the villa (if you look at villa from road, mountain is on left hand side) which you can climb up and it was the best views of Girona - you need to walk down to Monestir de Sant Daniel then up the hill. The walk up/down to Girona central is about 20minutes and was good exercise.. we all managed the hill fine but we had a car for big supermarket shops. Oh and Girona is a great relaxing place for New Years with a party at the Cathedral from midnight on New Years Eve... the bells chime and you have to eat 12 grapes! I would highly recommend this villa to everyone and hope to come back!

The apartment was bright and new and had everything you would need. Our hosts met us at the car park and walked us to the apartment and showed us around to make sure we were comfortable and went ove the city map to give us information on where to go in the city. They provdied very helpful hints printed in English of highlights of the city and the area. We really and enjoyed the Sunset Jazz Cafe which was a short walk from the apartment.
