Girona to the north is home to Roca, held by many critics as the world’s best restaurant.  

-Girona: This city is a must for anyone who likes historic architecture. The ensemble of medieval churches, civic buildings, homes and defensive structures is truly something to behold. The Gothic Basilica of Sant Feliu has a distinctive, narrow bell-tower and dates to the 1300s. The southern side of Girona’s historic defensive walls are still standing, and have a walkway with far-reaching views of the city.

The highligts were the heated pool, the care package upon arrival and well stocked library of books and DVD. The agency staff were extremely professional and helpful. We would highly recommend this property and hope to be back for another visit.

Lovely en-suite bathrooms in both master bedrooms. The garden and pool area were fantastic and well maintained. We had a wonderful time and highly recommend the villa. The local area has much to offer with beautiful beaches and great restaurants.
