Right in the Old Town, you will have shops, restaurants and walks literally round the corner. Parking 5 minutes walk. Fully equipped for long stays, please contact us for the best price. No extra fee for late arrivals. Quiet and cosy!
Days for a great break in the historical centre of a small pretty city!
The apartment is in the heart of the old town, on a privileged locations: in one of the most known streets of the town, with nice and special shops around (ever heard of a shop selling angels or Roman armor??)
The place is well insulated, with double glazed to prevent any noise coming from the street below. As the town is closed to the cars of non residents, the traffic is really low- good life quality! And as I live on the apartment below your you won't have parties every night (or you'll be one in it! :) )
The apartment is very simple: a living room with a sofa-bed and a small but well equipped kitchen, and another room with the bedroom. It doesn't feel small as the ceiling is very high, and there is good light and sun coming from the street.
The bedroom can be perfectly closed so no light comes in if you need absolute darkness to sleep. The apartment has air conditioning with a heat pump so you'll have the right temperature all year.
The kitchen, working on electric: vitro-ceramic cooks, and microwave. Also a fridge of course.
The bathroom is small but very comfortable: as the hot water comes from a gas heater, you will never miss a good shower.
A very nice part is the balcony on the street- see the picture of the small train (fake) passing by. With the small table, you'll have the perfect place for a cup of tea- or wine.
As you can see in the pictures, the decoration tries to match the ceramic original tiles on the floor (some 80 years old). We have tried to make it simple and elegant.
We have recently added a washing machine in a small room on the entrance, that you can use free of charge.
The apartment has recently been renovated, and the builing was made by a famous local architect, Rafel Maso. It has its museum two doors away, but unfortunately our building has only a few details on Maso style.
As the apartment is just in the city centre, everything is there: restaurants, take away food, supermarkets, museums... and of course the cathedrals, les Rambles... Actually I have a blog with my recommendations of Girona- I can't write the web address in there, but you'll have it when you book.
Girona is a small city so it takes less than 20 minutes to get anywhere from the centre: the train station is about 20 minutes walk.
There is no transit behind the apartment, apart from birds passing by.
As we want the things to be really easy, you may check in as late as you need as the apartment lock works with a code. Also, you may check out late if there is no booking for the same day.
Girona is a city that call for long walks, for quiet evenings with a glass of wine, or maybe for a theatre or music night? Also, at it is very safe, you can walk until late at night, by the old wall, by the river...
There a good number of occasions to visit Girona: Girona temps de flors, when all the city is dressed with flowers, or by Easter, with the Processó de Setmana Santa. Also Fires by end october (although it may be a bit crowded).
There is a very nice bar downstairs, and they'll let you pick your order upstairs and enjoy it at the apartment.
You won't find a nicest place in Girona. Also, as I am a private owner I can keep the price very reasonable.
Please contact me if you plan a long stay during low season. We already have had a writer and a journalist with good inspiration! And also a threathlon athlete!
This apartment is legally registered with the code H11GT00121
You will have a wifi and washing machine.
Interaction with Guests
I love sharing a beer with my guests in the bar downstairs.
The Old Town (barri vell) is a lively area with many places to visit, shops, or simply walk around. I specially love the gardens around the city wall, 10 minutes from here.
Neighbours: the building has 4 floor. Above yours, a nice guy that grows tomatoes on the roof. In front, the other apartment to rent but there are two doors in between so you'll hardly hear anything. And below yours, my own apartment.
The train station is 15 minutes away by foot. There are some buses around, but Girona is a small city and you already are in the center.
If you like nature, there is a big garden 10 minutes away with trees that were planted by Napoleon (or so they say). Or, even better, real vegetable gardens and forests 15 minutes walk away.
Taxis are available on demand, or also around the corner.
Other Things to Note
The apartment is ideal if you look for a cosy place down-town, at a reasonable price. There is a free parking area nearby, and we have a special deal with a parking for 15€ per day.
Smoking: please smoke on the balcony. That will prevent the smell of the smoke to invade the clothes.
Music: please keep it reasonable at all times, as the whole neighbourhood is very silent.
Rubbish: it can be left outside the building after 8pm.
You will have a washing machine available, free of charge, but you need to bring the soap.
It is very nice if you can leave the apartment reasonably clean, as we don't charge any cleaning fee. We'll clean it better after you leave, but it helps.
Please let us know if anything breaks during your stay or you found it broken. We won't be angry and we'll replace it, if you have made a reasonable use.
The Old Town Nest is clean, cosy and in the middle of Old Girona. We had a great time there last week. Davids instructions and suggestions were straight and useful. We can recommend the Old Town Nest.

Me gustó mucho la experiencia en el Old Town Nest! El piso estaba limpio y equipado.
Lo mejor de este piso para mí es su situación geográfica, ya que para quiere visitar Girona, el piso está localizado en el centro histórico de la ciudad en una zona privilegiada.
Vous êtes complètement libre et autonome comme à la maison !
Je suis une française qui voyage seule pour des raisons professionnelles notamment.
Je suis restée 1 mois dans l'appartement mis à disposition par David. En 2h j'étais chez moi. C'est comme sur la photo. Tout ce qui est écrit à propos de l'appart est vrai.
L'appart est située à min de l'office du tourisme et à 5/10 minutes à pied de la gare. Il ne peut pas être mieux situé c'est à dire dans la plus belle partie de la ville de Girone près de la cathédrale et des commerces. Tout est faisable à pied.
La proximité de la gare permet d'aller sur barcelone très rapidement (30 min par renfe ou 1h30 avec un train régional). Vous êtes à 30 min de Figueras pour aller visiter le musée/ théâtre de Dali et ensuite aller à Cadaques en bus.
En bref je recommande vivement un séjour dans cet appartement au charme catalan, idéal pour 1 ou 2 personnes. Il y a un lit double très confortable + 1 canap pour 2 si un week end entre amis arrosé s'annonce ;-)
David est un garçon adorable et très serviable. En plus d'être un excellent hôte il est de très bon conseils pour visiter la ville est ses alentours. Ilest bilingue français et parle parfaitement l'anglais la communication est donc très facile.
Petit appartement idéalement situé pour découvrir la magnifique ville de Gérone.
Bon rapport qualité/prix. Très propre. Literie très confortable, huisseries parfaitement isolantes. Très calme, bien que situé en plein centre ville très animé. Tous commerces à proximité. Accès wifi parfaitement fonctionnel.
Suffisant pour 2 personnes, un peu petit pour 3 (notre expérience).
Équipement de cuisine un peu limité pour permettre de préparer un repas élaboré.
Très bon contact e-mail avec David. Nous ne l'avons pas rencontré car il était lui même en vacances à ce moment là, mais tout était prévu pour notre arrivée.
Logement parfaitement recommandable pour un excellent séjour à la découverte de Gérone, de l'Empordà, et de la Costa Brava.
Accurate pictures, excellent location in the city center with good windows that isolate any noise. Host came to say hello and make sure we did not need anything. Easy booking. I would strongly recommend it.
We enjoyed every moment of our visit to Girona. David's flat is in an excellent location within walking distance to every part of this little gem of a city. Old Town Nest suited our needs and we especially enjoyed the little balcony to watch the people pass by. The flat was very clean and David was an excellent host helping in any way we needed him. He offered great suggestions for restaurants and things to do. There are many stairs to climb so if you are not able that would be the only negative. We loved it because it gave us a chance to work off all the delicious food we ate!!
Questa sistemazione l'abbiamo scelta sulla base del rapporto qualità/prezzo, e da questo punto di vista siamo più che soddisfatti. La descrizione e le foto corrispondono alla realtà. Il quartiere è quanto di meglio ci si possa aspettare, proprio accanto c'è la Casa Masò, assolutamente da visitare e forse la cosa che ho più amato di Girona. La casa è ideale per due persone, andarci in tre è stata una nostra scelta: è andata comunque benissimo, ma non lo consiglio. David è molto organizzato, arrivo e partenza senza intoppi. La casa è dotata di tutto quello di cui c'è bisogno. Il letto è comodo.

I am someone who likes very different things, you will see. Let's start: I was born in a small town in l'Empordà, called Torroella de Montgrí. Those were also a mixture of happy and wild times, a bit like Amarcord from Fellini (watch it if you haven't).
Then I studied computer science in Barcelona, and a PhD with a part of it in London, about medical imaging.
In between something entered my life, for good: yoga: I started practicing and soon I was so pationated then when I finished my PhD it was obvious that becoming a teaching would be the best choice of my life.
So I practice yoga every day, and also: I love music, and I play myself the accordeon and the clarinet. Just as an amateur, but the pleasure of making music is amazing. I also like dancing, folk music and lately also Lindy Hop (Girona has a few places to dance if you are into it).
I like eating well and healthy. Not to much meat (I am sorry for those creatures we kill but sometimes it comes and I eat).
I like travelling, in all wild ways, but I am not a traveller that can tell thousands things! I participate as well in the (website hidden) project, from time to time- and when there isn't already someone at my place, a friend or a friend of a friend.
The apartment I rent, Girona Riverside, was planned to be for me as another floor was ment to be the yoga studio. However now I have another, bigger, place for yoga and I rent it. I hope you like it!
As a buddhist (if I can call myself that which I don't know) my motto would be to understand the sources of suffering, and enjoy immediate happyness.
Hola!Soy David!Soy profesor de yoga y os invito a una estancia estupenda en el centro de Girona en un apartamento con unas increibles vistas al rio!Naturaleza y silencio para tu felicidad!
