Stay in a historical building! Right in the Old Town, you will have shops, restaurants and walks literally round the corner. Very quiet, with wide views on the river. Parking is about 5 minutes walk. Long stays welcome. No late arrival fees.

The space
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 location: right in front of the riverside. So you'll see the birds fishing in the morning, and the sun sets will just be yours, on a huge 4 meters wide window on the river.
In addition to the views, the silence is one of the pros of the apartment; the river is very quiet, and as I live on the apartment below your you won't have parties every night (or you'll be one in it! :) )
The place has one big room; on one side the bed, very comfortable and wide, and on the other the sofa-bed and the computer. It doesn't feel small as the ceiling is very high, and a nice (sort of) Japanese wall separates the two parts.
This room can be perfectly closed so no light comes in if you need absolute darkness to sleep. This room has air conditioning and central heating, and also a couple of fans if you are not friend of a.c.
Next to this room, the huge gallery has this views on the river: some 4 meters wide windows, with the typical Mediterranean blinds, painted in blue. Over there you have a small 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.
As you can see in the pictures, the decoration is spare so you won't be disturbed, and the parquet flooring makes it very worm and cosy. 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 at a small charge.
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 basement of the building is a nice bar called La Terra, but no music comes through (I am very sensitive to ambiance music!)
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.

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 octuber (thou 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. I am very open to long stays. We already have had a writer and a journalist with good inspiration!

I believe we live in one of the best places in the world. It has the advantages of a city, but actually is is still a town- in the good way! Iis 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. I deeply appreciate that cars are restricted in the area.

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 couchsurfing 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!

During your stay
It all depends on us. I like sharing a beer with my guests in bar downstairs, but sometimes I may be busy, or guests may not be willing. It comes naturally, whatever.
