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.

Terry and Gloria were excellent hosts and we enjoyed their company. There are many interesting places to visit and plenty of enjoyable walks in the area. We spent several days around the volcanic park and in neighbouring towns and villages.
