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

Because we planned such a long stay in one place we wanted to make sure that we were making the right choice.We had lots of questions at the beginning and Peter and Lucy answered everything quickly and providing us with lots of information.From our very first enquiry we struck up a good relationship with them and this was important to us as it gave us confidence we had chosen the right place for our stay. The apartment is large, very comfortable and stylish with everything that you need.Everything was of good quality and the whole apartment was nicely decorated. Bed linen changes were done on a regular basis (with fresh towels) by Carmen the wonderful local property manager. We felt relaxed and "at home" straight away.The apartment is ideally located close to town( about a 10 min walk to the centre and the beach) and it has great views over the marina and out to sea.The balcony is spacious with plenty of room for 4 people to sit and have a meal or a drink. We loved Sant Feliu.Its a real Spanish town with life all year round.It has some great cafes,bars and restuarants and a very pleasant pedestrian zone with small shops and alleys.There is always lots going on and Peter and Lucy were kind enough to give us regular updates on local events and celebrations over the Festive season and beyond.There is a fish and fruit/vegetable market most days and a full street market on a Sunday- quite an experience ! All in all we loved our stay.Thank you Peter and Lucy for everything that made our 3 month stay so memorable.

                                                                                                    5 of 5

The house is well equipped including a table tennis table and swimming pool toys for children. The gardens are beautiful with a variety of seating in the sun and shaded areas. There are a variety of beaches (driving distance) and towns to visit and Barcelona is a day trip away. I would highly recommend this villa.
