  • I came to Girona alone as part of a work project I was doing and the house was the most inspiring place I could have stayed. It really is in the best location - right in the heart of the old jewish quarter and the way Lila has decorated and furnished is so beautiful.

    Lila herself was amazingly welcoming - she made sure i had everything I needed and was happy to help me plan my trip and make sure I knew were things were and how to use the transport to make day trips.

    I couldn't recommend the house enough and will definitely be back, hopefully next time when the weather is a bit better!

  • Lila possède une maison idéalement située à deux pas de la cathédrale, c'est un havre de paix ou il fait bon vivre. Nous avons passé un très bon séjour et y reviendrons si nous repassons par Girona !!

  • We had a great time staying in the old town, the apartment was clean and tidy when we arrived. A bed had been made up for our son (3) everything was as expected. For anyone wanting to explore the old town a great place to stay. There were others staying at the same time using another room, this was not a problem for us. Lila was very helpful with running tracks and general getting around town.

  • It was my first time at all in a BnB and I`m very thankful that I lost my "virginity" LoL ..with Lilas charming Home...
    I won`t talk much about the beauty or stunning Architectural building that she owns, that seems to go with her personality. I think that the pictures of it can show it more than words. Than about Lila :-)... in the short period of time that we stayed there. We can describe her without hesitation, that she's as an lovely, charming and very funny woman.
    We definitely recommend it ...
    Gracias Lila por tu amabilidad y hospitalidad que recibimos en tu casa

    Totalmente recomendable.Volveré, sin duda.

  • Hemos estado durante tres días en casa de Lila. El piso es realmente precioso, muy acogedor; ideal para desconectar y descansar.

    La comunicación con Lila fue siempre perfecta, nos dio indicaciones precisas para localizar la casa, aparcar y estuvo atenta en todo momento.

    Sin duda, lo recomendamos! Nosotros volveremos :)

  • a warm hearted/ genuine and kind host, an excellent location to explore the city, and the authenticity of Gerona!

  • We had a wonderful stay. The room is extremely comfortable, beautifully decorated, and truly unique, with a fascinating mix of ancient stone walls and modern touches. Lila was a fantastic host! We enjoyed meeting her, and she provided great tips on where to eat and go. The location also couldn't be better, just next to the Cathedral on a quiet street, in the heart of the Jewish District. We only wish we could have stayed longer!
