Make a holiday cottage in Gironès your home away from home

Gironès holiday cottages are ideal for those who want a getaway with exceptional natural landscapes, storied history and an almost endless list of things to do. Holiday homes in Gironès tend to be traditional stone buildings with antique furniture and set in large grounds. Complementing the historical authenticity of the accommodation are delightful modern comforts like private pools and modern domestic conveniences. The Costa Brava and its sublime beaches are also within easy reach of cottages in Gironès, while there are also plenty of options for outdoor recreation in the vicinity amid spectacular upland scenery.

Things to do

-History: The city of Girona is one of Catalonia's cultural highlights. The historical centre was laid out in the middle ages, and in many places has changed little. The southern parts of the city’s ancient ramparts can be explored on foot for excellent views. The iconic 10th-century church of Sant Feliu next to the Onyar River is stunning and is a famous example of Catalan Gothic architecture.  

-Outdoor fun: Gironès is ideal for those of an active bent, with a mountain of adventure on offer. For those who want to get out into nature there are opportunities for kayaking, cycle tours, quad-biking, hiking and climbing, all facilitated by local companies. There are also two prestigious golf courses in the area, including the PGA Catalunya resort, as well a nine-hole pitch and putt course at Fornells de la Selva.

-Natural scenery: The Costa Brava is loved for its rugged landscapes, and in Gironès, tourists will have the beautiful pine-covered hills of the Campdorà to the east. With a little exploring, visitors will encounter sanctuaries and hermitages deep in the forest which date back hundreds of years. Meanwhile to the northwest of the comarca is la Garrotxa, Spain’s largest volcanic zone. The volcanoes here are all extinct, but their distinctive cones remain and create some very memorable landscapes.

-Gastronomy: Modern Catalan cuisine has won great acclaim in recent years, and this corner of the region is especially vaunted. Girona is home to Roca, which is held by those in-the-know to be one of the best restaurants in the world. Traditional fare is satisfying and is based on local produce—olives, olive oil, an abundance of vegetables as well as fish freshly caught in the Mediterranean are at the core of the local diet.  

-Coast: The Costa Brava is an easy option for a family day by the beach, and there some fantastic resorts to track down with perfect Blue Flag beaches. Tossa de Mar has the stunning Platja de Fenals, while Castell-Platja d’Aro boasts no fewer than eight beaches, ranging from long stretches of golden sand to shaded coves next to perfectly clear waters.  

Weather in Gironès

Gironès holiday accommodation is in a Mediterranean climate zone. Summer heat is tempered slightly by a breeze that comes off the Pyrenees, which also makes winters a little cooler. Highs in July peak at around 29°C, and precipitation is infrequent throughout the season until September. The warm weather lasts until mid-October when things start to get a bit milder. Winters in Gironès can be cool, but sub-zero conditions are unusual apart from on the highest ground. A typical winter’s day gets highs in the low-teens.

Travel to Gironès

Visitors can reach a Gironès holiday home from the UK via Girona Airport (GRO). This airport handles flights from the UK with a number of low-cost carriers, and although the majority of routes are only open during the summer, there are still plenty of year-round links. No part of the Gironès comarca is more than half an hour from the airport and the road network is wide-ranging. The A-2 autopista forms the spine of Gironès, with a host of provincial roads branching off it. At the airport, travellers can also catch six bus routes serving all parts of the Costa Brava and Empordà.

                                                                                                      5 of 5
                                                                                                      We were greeted by Montse Ollé, the friendly administrator of the property, who was waiting at the apartment when we arrived. She informed us of everything we needed to know about the apartment and was eager to answer any questions we had. The apartment is split on two floors with the living room/kitchen on the top floor of the house and the bedrooms below. The entire apartment is furnished with high quality items, including Miele/Bosch appliances, a marble kitchen counter-top, a centrally-controlled Bose stereo system and comfortable sheets and linens. There are four (very clean) bathrooms in the apartment, three of which with showers in each bedroom. The main bathroom also has a tub. There is a fireplace in the living room and directly on the other side of the wall on the balcony, which enables one to keep warm outside. The view from the living room and balcony is magnificent, directly facing the university and the Convent de Sant Domènec. The Cathedral of Girona is just a few meters away and there are numerous ancient paths from the apartment to the old city. If one doesn't want to hear the church bells at night, one should use earplugs. We stayed in the apartment for one week from February 4 to February 11. The weather was nice, having rained only one night. But it was quite cold with temperatures going down to about 2 degrees Celsius. The heating in the apartment was adequate. But it wouldn't have been had the weather been any colder. There were enough blankets and we could have used the fireplace. The apartment was expensive, considering the prices of other apartments in the area. But it was worth it. There were only two (minor) problems with the apartment. There were some dirty dishes in the sink when we arrived and a wet mop in the kitchen closet that didn't smell so good. All in all, our experience was very good, and we would highly recommend this property to anybody looking for a high-end apartment 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.
