Excellent location and value in Girona

4 of 5
We stayed in this apt for a month in order to explore Girona and try out living in the city, rather than as a tourist experience. For 2 of us there was ample space and the location is super-convenient, a min walk from barri bell and the river/old town. The apt block is populated mostly by working locals, rather than tourist accommodation and the environment reflects this. However, we found the apt very quiet at night, and our major disturbance was the canary downstairs singing in the morning! The amenities are good and the apt is spacious enough for 2-3 people. There is ample parking in front of the bldg, which is a godsend in Girona. The only time we had a problem was during the week of the flower festival when the city was heaving. Karen was an excellent host and provided us with lots of useful info and practical help when we encountered some problems with local administration. In summary, the apt was perfect for our needs and represents excellent value for money for its city centre location. Highly recommended.

Simple but charming flat in ideal location

5 of 5
Elisabeth's Home Away flat on the very edge of the beautiful historic centre of Girona has everything necessary and nothing superfluous to requirements. We loved our base for two nights and as we were just my sister and I we had plenty of space to spread out and were happy to make and eat our simple meals in the kitchen; although Elisabeth also supplied some good shopping/visiting/ice cream tips! Thank you.
