About the property

Happy, sunny days. 5 flexible bdrooms, 4 bthrooms. Child friendly, fenced pool.

WELCOME. Enjoy happy, sunny days with family and friends at our delightful rural character Catalan masia, with swimming pool; a true home from home, a fabulous house for small to large gatherings. Just arrive, relax, enjoy a delicious supper under the outside roofed porch; indulge in an al fresco breakfast; flop in the sun, play in the pool, find a quiet corner to read; explore Girona, Costa Brava and Catalunya at your leisure.

Casa Nova Girona is a charming, tranquil, charácter house situated within a small estate between two villages (2km & 3km). Rural but not isolated, it is an easy 10 to 15 minute drive right into Girona's charming city centre and Girona Airport is within a 10 minute drive. Transport links are good with easy access to Barcelona, Costa Brava and France. There are many local shops and supermarkets, bars, cafes, restaurants and child play areas all within a 10 minute drive of the house.


Casa Nova Girona is light, spacious, well decorated and well appointed with modern comfort. More than just a rental house; we spend holidays and celebrations with our family and friends in the house.

There is a lovely flow and openness with tiled and wooden floors, Catalan vaulted and beamed ceilings and shuttered windows. The sitting room has comfy sofas, ideal for children sheltering from the sun and lazy winter gatherings in front of the ambient wood burning stove.

Both the dining room and the fabulous outside roofed terrace have extendable tables giving you the choice to eat al fresco or inside, and plenty of room to set up a jigsaw or a game of scrabble.

The kitchen is very well equipped, with a large oven, 5 gas burners, plenty of crockery, glassware, various coffee pots etc, and has a dining table by the front window.


For your arrival we put in a Welcome Pack to get you started, and we can also offer a food shop service and an arrival supper, to make your arrival truly relaxed.


The house has 5 bedrooms, with 4 bathrooms, all well decorated and comfortable, with flexible sleeping areas and room for cots in most bedrooms. Bed linen, plenty of towels and hairdryers are supplied; sheets and throws in the summer, duvets in the winter.

Bedroom's 1, 2, 3 and 4 are all accessed from the spacious first floor hall. Bedroom 5, is on the second floor. (For smaller groups there is the option to shut the gate to the upper stairs, to bedroom 5, to all have bedrooms on the same floor.)

BATHROOMS - There are 3 en suite bathrooms, and one family bathroom shared by bedroom's 3 and 4. We have two baths.

CHILD AND TODDLER EQUIPMENT AVAILABLE - The house is well equipped with baby chairs, booster seat, potties, bath, changing mats, bed guards, cots, monitor, sterliser, stair gates, games and toys etc, etc.

CHILD SAFETY - The pool area is fenced with a locking gate, so that you can relax whilst your children play in the garden. The walled garden has gates.


The masia is located on a private estate. The walled front garden has open views over our fields and hazelnut grove. The swimming pool is situated within the front garden, south facing, sunny all day, with sun loungers, parasols and an outside shower.

Relax under the large roofed porch, the most fabulous furnished outdoor area for summer living, balmy evenings and winter lunches. It is furnished with wooden tables, a ceiling fan, lights, outdoor fridge, sink and traditional barbecue. It is also the ideal spot to set up the ping pong table. Savour the Mediterranean, end your day with a fabulous, tasty barbecue, relax and star gaze at night.

In addition there are many other areas to explore on the estate outwith the walled front garden - further garden areas, our vegetable patch, fruit trees, hazelnut grove, fields and our cork and oak wood - plenty of space to walk, cycle, play boules, to relax, to read a book.


Owner managed; a very warm welcome; book with confidence; Chris and Gill look forward to meeting you.

We were two families each with three children staying for 14 nights. The villa really was home from home and we all soon settled in! Gill and Chris were just so lovely, very welcoming and always happy to help! We all really enjoyed our stay. All the homely touches much appreciated. The villa is equipped with everything you could possibly need! Plenty of space for us all!!

The information books and maps of all the surrounding areas were just brilliant. Thank you very much.

The children spent many a happy hour playing table tennis.

We found a gorgeous pattesiere just 5 mins drive in vilobi d'onyar where we all enjoyed fresh crossaints and coffee each morning. 😊򒠊

Our favourite beach out of the many we visited was llafranc. Beautiful! Well worth a visit.

We also loved Girona which was only a 10 mins straight forward drive with easy parking .

Barcelona not far...we went by train which was so easy. Chris helped us with the timetable!

Many thanks again to Gill and Chris for all their help in making our holiday most enjoyable. Thumbs up from us all....

Excellent villa, very well equipped for families, very friendly and helpful owners. Fab location!

  • 4 of 5

We loved the villa and its location, great for visiting the surrounding area. Dog friendly, plenty of space for all in and out of the villa. We all had a fantastic holiday and enjoyed the meal that the owners cooked for us on our arrival. Air conditioning would have been nice, but we managed with the ample fans provided. Couldn't fault it!

The Perfect Holiday Home

  • 5 of 5

We stayed with four adults and three children, six and under, for an all too short 6 days. The house provides an impressive amount of space and facilities and is close to attractions such as Girona and the Beaches. The location is fantastic, only 15 minutes from the airport but with virtualy no aircraft noise - all we could hear was the amazing birdsong.

On arrival there was a warm welcome and plenty of food for us to get started. There is a wide range of toys for children (and grown ups!). The pool is another great feature.

Gill and Chris are great hosts and provided us with two superb meals.

For seven people I doubt you could find better overall.

Maison magnifique !!!

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un super séjour entre amis (10 personnes dont 4 enfants) dans cette formidable maison sur-équipée (des raquettes de ping-pong aux frites de piscine en passant par les jeux de société, les torchons, le fouet de cuisine et j'en passe des centaines...).

Les propriétaires Chris et Gill qui vivent juste à côté sont d'une extrême gentillesse et ont tout fait pour rendre notre séjour agréable (documentation sur les plages qu'on cherchait,...), en restant discrets et disponibles.

Seul bémol : la piscine trop chlorée qui a provoqué des réactions sur les peaux plus fragiles.

Le reste est idéal : isolée, vraiment très au calme, cette maison très spacieuse est très confortable et accueillante, comme le sont peu de locations. On sent qu'il s'agit d'une maison familiale.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. You were a delightful group; it was lovely to meet you all and we are happy that you enjoyed your stay this summer at our house. We are sorry that one of your children developed a chlorine sensitivity and hope that some of our advice helped. We do try to keep a clean pool and check chlorine levels regularly. We would love to have you stay again. With best wishes.

Wonderful house

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 friends, including children, who periodically go on vacations together for 2 weeks, and do some biking and lots of eating. This house is as comfortable as shown on the web page and worked very well for us.

The spaces are large enough for a large group, and comfortably furnished. There are enough different places, that you are not confined to your room if you want a little privacy. The outdoor eating area was great. The internet and TV and other facilities worked well.

The hosts were extremely accomodating and friendly. The grounds well kept. The area nearby is quite pretty for both walking close by, as well as for road biking.

Casa Nova Girona is a rural property, located in the N.E. corner of Spain, a 10/15 minute drive right into Girona city centre, 10 minutes from Girona airport, 25 minutes from the Costa Brava coast, within an hour of Barcelona and a 40 minute drive from the French border.

Travel is easy and direct - 10 minutes from the AP-7 road; Girona Rail Station for the high speed train; various airports.

Private, secluded, yet not isolated, this location allows you to enjoy all aspects of Catalunya from countryside to coastal and village to city.

The masia is situated between two villages, (2 & 3km), with a large variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, supermarkets, activities, culture etc in the área ...... and only a 15 minute drive right into Girona's charming city centre and one of the many central car parks.

Days can be as active or as lazy as you wish - travel, explore, play golf, tennis, cycle, wander through Girona, experience Barcelona, discover Salvador Dali, or relax, enjoy the house, pool and estate, end the day with a great family bbq.

120 minutes north of Reus Airport;

60 minutes south of Perpignan Airport;

120 minutes south of both Beziers and Carcassonne Airports.

( Ideally we are a 10 minute drive to Girona Airport, but at the masia we have little awareness of the airplanes as they land and take off, as we are to the west of the airport and the flight path is to the north and south.)

TRAIN - 15/20 minutes from both Girona and Caldes de Malavella train stations, ideal for a day trip into Barcelona.

Take the high speed train from Girona to Barcelona Sants Station, 38 minutes.

BEACHES - Our closest beaches, approx 25 minute drive, less than 30 minutes, door to door, are Platja d'Aro and S'Agaro - and drive a little further to the delights of Tamariu, Llafranc and Begur.

GOLF COURSES - Our closest golf courses include the PGA Catalunya, a 15 minute drive, and Franciac Pitch and Putt for some family fun. Golf Girona and Golf d'Aro, both approx 25 minute drive and a little further to many other golf courses.

CYCLING - Girona Province is a perfect location for road cycling with excellent cycling routes, It is home to many pro-cyclists. Sant Hilari is one of our local routes.

Casa Nova Girona is a great base for a cycling holiday. We have a track pump and a bicycle car rack for your use.

Have fun on one of our bicycles, or hire from a cycle company in Girona and book a guided day trip road tour. Bicycles can be delivered to the house.

WE CAN RECOMMEND - the charm of Girona, with it's excellent shops, restaurants, tapas, culture & markets; Costa Brava coves & beaches; family fun at a Platja d'Aro waterpark; many golf courses; medieval village of Besalu; Salvador Dali Museums; :Emporda Greek and Roman ruins: ES F1 GP weekend; crafts & festivals; Thermal Spa at Santa Coloma de Farners; walking; cycling; the cosmopolitan streets of Barcelona within easy reach. Enjoy all year round - there is something for all ages and interests.
