Make a holiday rental apartment or holiday villa in Girona, Spain your home away from home

The city of Girona, the ‘City of Four Rivers’, is often ignored by tourists as they head straight to the beaches of the Costa Brava as soon as their flight to Girona Airport lands, but there is so much to see and do that missing out on the attractions of Girona is almost unforgivable. Girona has developed into a fascinating melting pot of historical interest, dating right back to its Iberian origins, through its time as an important Roman trading post and an Arab cultural centre. Girona is a fantastic city to tour on foot, with spectacular views in almost every direction, and a pleasing lack of tourist crowds

Very well appointed apartment in good area of the city, felt safe, and near train and bus stations

5 of 5
The owner, Liza, is very helpful and friendly. She met us and showed us around the apartment. It is in a good area of the city near boutique shopping, cafes and a small supermarket. The area felt very safe and was handy to walk into the old town (10 mins stroll), the city walls (8 mins) and the cathedral (15 mins). There are two balconies, and we enjoyed relaxing on the larger one at the back in the evening as there are comfortable seats and we felt like we were definitely part of city life watching the lights come on around us as locals came back home each night. The kitchen had all the equipment we needed to cook family meals and everything was clean and well kept. Liza had kindly organised a welcome pack of bread, milk etc for us which was lovely. The apartment sleeps six comfortably - seven would be a nuisance as you would have to walk through the bedroom to the balcony. The washing machine is great if you only want to take hand luggage on the plane, or need to wash through cycling kit like we did. Towels and bedding are all provided. The bathroom was good with a large corner bath. The hand held shower was manageable although an overhead shower would have made it perfect. There is plenty to do in Girona itself for a city break. We enjoyed visiting the cathedral, basilica and art museum, and had fun wandering around the Jewish Quarter and sitting in cafes in the old town. The Placa de la Independencia is lovely too. One of the highlights of our city break was getting up before the crowds and walking along the restored city walls, looking down across the red-tiled rooftops to the cathedral, then having a lazy Spanish lunch at a restaurant near the basilica. Away from the buildings, there is a very large wooded park in the city which we cycled through, indeed the whole area is very well set up for cycling and walking around too. There is a parking space but we didn't need it. It is only a couple of minutes walk to the train and bus stations which meant we could easily have day trips to other areas of the region as well as have a city break. Would recommend taking the half hour train journey to Figueres for the amazingly quirky Salvador Dali museum - book online in advance to avoid very long queues. We also took the bus (25 mins) to Banyoles to swim in the lake - best to either buy a coffee and swim at the cafe swimming area or pay £13 each for the Banyoles swimming club site. Definitely recommend Girona and this apartment for a city break.

Amazing.

When I booked this stay, I never imagined this remodeled home would be right in the heart of the old city of Girona. What a wonderful experience to be so close to the history of the city and to be able to be part of the daily heartbeat. Andrea was wonderful. It was late in the evening when she met us with a smile and such enthusiasm for her adopted city and her job. We loved the apartment. It was perfect for the 3 of us. Even the walk with luggage and the walk to the lot where we parked didn't spoil the experience. We were thankful for the elevator, however small. We appreciated the air conditioner and the washer and dryer. It was a great place to come home to at the end of each full day of exploring. Waking up with the bustle of the city was also enjoyable. The doors/window shutters on the balconies kept the apartment very quiet. Except for the jack hammers the day the water mains were being worked on, we had no noise. I would certainly recommend this place and this company, Owners Direct, to anyone traveling on their own (without a tour guide). It was so easy to find the perfect property for our needs and to be assured before leaving home and along the way that you were looking out for our stay to be the best it could be---and it was. Thank you.
