This two bedroom apartment has been furnished in style & is the perfect base for discovering the beautiful and ancient city of Girona. It is at the entrance to the old part of town & its many cool streets of restaurants, cafes & independent shops.
There are two bedrooms with plenty of storage space - one double and one twin with spare mattress. A large lounge and living room with balcony give lots of room to relax whilst the kitchen and bathroom are attractive & modern.
Sunny yet cool in summer, whilst warm and cosy in winter we offer only fans and central heating. Air con is not needed. Free fast wifi available.
Barcelona is 35 minutes (AVE) or one hour and a half away (RENFE regional) by train.
There is ample free parking opposite, particularly in summer, whilst it is only a short walk from the bus and train stations of Girona. Buses run throughout the city.
Just 1 hour from Girona you will find the many beaches of the Costa Brava, the mountains of Gavarres, the three art museums of Dali and the French market of Ceret.
For children there is a play park for youngsters over the road and in the Devesa Park an open air swimming pool in the summer.
This apartment is registered under the new Catalan tourist property law and so passport details and a small tourist tax will be required on arrival for those staying less than 31 days.
If you are working in the city, the apartment offers everything you need for short term lets, with all services included. Special long term rates available.
Make this your base for discovering Catalonia.
The apartment is one of 8 in the block with a shared entrance and lift.
Interaction with Guests
Your English speaking host will meet you at the apartment at a convenient time to show you around and point out some places of interest in the city. All queries will be quickly answered by phone or email and I live only 30 minutes away should there be any maintenance issue with the flat. There is no need to check out if you have an early morning flight, just leave the keys and slam the door!
Despite being so close to the centre of the city, the riverside location means there are no sense of being overlooked in the living areas and the shady trees give even greater privacy.
Buses & taxis can be caught at the end of the street but for the town there is simply no need to use it. To explore Catalonia the train and bus station are 10 minutes walk away.
Other Things to Note
For your peace of mind, our apartment is properly registered under the new Catalan laws for tourist accommodation: 2014045976. The gas heating is serviced annually & full insurance for a rental property is in place.
Respect the neighbours and your hosts.
Please only smoke on the balcony.
Most importantly enjoy your stay in Catalonia!
every thing was spot on. Location was brilliant right at the doorstep of the old city-
Comfortable apartment close to Old Town
Hi Katherine, please resend your Sunday email. No sign of it I'm afraid.
I realise the apartment is not geared up for washing lots of bed linen and towels which is why I do it at my home 30 minutes away. If you had communicated the changes before I picked you up from the airport, I could have brought you the appropriate linen and towels and you would not have needed to try and dry things at the flat. Not ideal for the flat either and I guess that was why you left the heating on high when you left to try and dry things out. I am suffering from a slipped disc at the moment so all walking, carrying, driving is very hard work for me which is why I try to minimise my journey to and from Girona and was disappointed to find out I needed two trips on the same day. I don't want to make a huge deal about this and I have not claimed on your Airbnb deposit. I take great pride in making sure my guests enjoy their stay and any problems are dealt with quickly. I hope you had a good time with your sisters for the birthday trip.
We had a great time in Girona. The apartment was perfect and walking distance to everything. Karen always replied quickly when we had questions about different things. She was very kind and helpful. The apartment was fully equipped and it felt like home. The only negative remark is that it was very noisy, and you could hear the neighbours very well. But it didn´t bother us because we are use to it from were we live in Stockholm, Sweden. We would definitly recommend renting this aparment from Karen, and we would love to come back!
Thank you Karen for everything, and we hope to be back in Girona soon.
kind regards, Cornelia and Felicia
We really enjoyed our stay at Karen's apartment in Girona! The location was fantastic; a short walk to the old city but in a nice, quiet area. The apartment was very clean and had lots of space for three adults. We had some issues with the wifi but Karen dealt with them right away. Overall, a great place to stay!
The Sunny apartment in Girona is perfect for you Girona visit. It's on walking distance of all the ancient sites in Girona. The apartment is well equipped has a nice balcony and free parking. Mind you, in town you don't need your car, in fact it's a burden to drag it around ;-)
We enjoyed staying in this apartment and visiting Girona very much.
One small minus, the apartment is listed as having Wifi, that is true, but it's some 'free' public wifi service and only available on the balcony. If you need internet you'd pull your hair out because it's too flaky to be really useable.
Glad you enjoyed Girona and the apartment. If I had known you wanted wifi for more than checking emails then I would have directed you earlier to the internet cafés around the corner. There are two within 5 minutes of the flat. Sorry, we are too close to the thick city walls of the old town!
Karen was warm and welcoming and her impeccable apartment in Girona was perfect for our little family. It's in an excellent and safe location, just steps away from the old part of Girona, which is really really old!
Fist of all, we really enjoyed our time in Girona, and found the people, the food, the architecture...everything about it was enchanting, and it was far less touristy than Barcelona. That's my plug for Girona itself.
We also loved Karen's apartment. It was very clean, tastefully and thoughtfully furnished with everything we needed to feel right at home.
There was a little bit of noise during the day from car traffic, but it was very quiet at night, and we slept like babies on the comfy beds. And the neighbors in the building were quiet...we didn't see much of them actually.
We liked Girona and the apartment so much, we spontaneously decided to stay several extra days. We also had the pleasure of visiting Karen and her husband's home/B&B (Can Torras) way out in the country...an amazing place indeed!
We highly recommend Karen's Girona flat. Next time we visit Spain, we will definitely plan to spend more time in the Girona area and hopefully spend a few nights out at Karen and David's idyllic B&B as well.

My family and I moved to Catalonia from the UK fourteen years ago, finding Can Torras two years later. Since then it has been a labour of love to renovate two apartments and our old farmhouse. We knew from the start this was where we wanted to live - the food, the scenery, the wonderful weather. Now I'm pleased to share the farmhouse, our garden and its magnificent views with visitors and offer our apartment in Girona for self catering stays. I am happy to share my experiences so that visitors enjoy the best that Catalonia has to offer.
