Perfect villa for a family holiday!
This was our first time booking a villa via Home and away and from start to finish the process was seamless. Tony responded very quickly to emails and sent so much helpful information before we arrived that it really put us at ease. Our flight in to Girona was delayed but this was no problem. Ferran kept in touch via text and was waiting to welcome us to the villa at 1.30am! The villa itself is fabulous with a relaxed and homely feel. We were a family of 5 with 3 student kids,19, 21 and 23 who can be difficult to please! But we had no complaints at all. The villa is so clean and spacious. The pool is perfect with plenty loungers to relax on. The views are absolutely stunning and a short scenic walk downhill (10-15 mins) leads to Girona old quarter where the restaurants are fab and there is a gelato shop around every corner! There are so many lovely walks locally and we passed many cyclists. On this occasion we did not hire a car and managed perfectly well to get around on foot taking taxis home at night for under 9 euros from placa Independencia.
The villa is so well equipped, with many lovely touches like board games, dvds, books and a great Tv with loads of channels which can be switched to English!
Yes there are local dogs who bark sometimes, but they are not a problem at all. The Villa is in a lovely safe area and is itself very well secured.
We will be recommending this villa to everyone and cannot wait to return!
Maison très bien située proche du centre historique de Gérone
Emplacement idéal pour découvrir la ville à pied.
Large beautiful villa with a great view and pool.
Beautiful villa with a great view. Loved the pool and the decks. Lots of room for our group of people. Easy to access. Ferrin very attentive. Just wish there was WIFI.
Amazing spacious property with great terraces and unbeatable views of Girona!
We stayed here over the New Years period for 4 nights - a group of 8 (4 couples). It was perfect in every way! Even though it was December/January we still caught the sun on the terrace and had a leisurely breakfast outside every morning with stunning views of Girona. Perhaps it's not quite clear from the pictures but the lounge area is huge and really great for relaxing after a day of walking around Girona (we pulled all four sofas together so we could all sit together in the evening). There is a dining room/table for evening meals. All the 4 bedrooms are really spacious and there was extra blankets for chilly nights. I can imagine this is an amazing place to rent in the summer - the pool looked incredibly inviting but it was too cold this time of year. I recommend taking a morning walk around the local area (there is a nature trail... if you turn right out of villa and follow the Carrer Torre de Sant Narcís it will turn into a track which will take you back around to a road and from there back to villa). Also there is a mountain to the left of the villa (if you look at villa from road, mountain is on left hand side) which you can climb up and it was the best views of Girona - you need to walk down to Monestir de Sant Daniel then up the hill. The walk up/down to Girona central is about 20minutes and was good exercise.. we all managed the hill fine but we had a car for big supermarket shops. Oh and Girona is a great relaxing place for New Years with a party at the Cathedral from midnight on New Years Eve... the bells chime and you have to eat 12 grapes!
I would highly recommend this villa to everyone and hope to come back!
Idéalement située, la maison est construite sur une colline, ce qui donne une vue magnifique sur le centre ville de Gérone. Les pièces sont grandes et très bien réparties.
L'accueil à été parfait.
Comme le veut la légende de la Lionne, nous retournerons à Gérone et très certainement dans cette maison.
Marci beaucoup Charles pour votre 'review'. Nous sommes tres contents que tes vacances sont bien passes dans la maison. Nous avons deja achetee une nouvelle et tres bonne cuisinier. Nous serons tres heureux de vous recevoir la prochaine fois!
There is lots to like about this house. The owner is honest, responsible, and responsive; the kitchen and bathrooms are in good shape; the pool is nice (if a bit chilly); and the view is terrific. There really were only two downsides. First, although advertised as sleeping 8, it's really only comfortable for 6. The extra beds, such as they were, were really uncomfortable, even for our teenagers' backs. Plus, the fourth bedroom is more like an office and wasn't set up for the bed when we arrived. In addition, the next-door neighbors' dogs are annoying. Ignore any reviews that describe the dogs as threatening; they're small and behind gates. Rather, it's the constant din of yapping that got on our nerves. At least, the dogs are taken inside at night. This all said, the villa is in good condition, the location is quite nice (above the city looking down at it), and the owner is trustworthy. Improving the additional beds and adding wireless would be terrific, but the house is a very good value as is. We're Americans who've owned rental property ourselves before, so it's possible our standards are too high. Certainly, this property compares favorably with everywhere else we've stayed in Spain.
Thanks for this. We have already purchased some new furniture, including the beds which you commented upon. These will be installed over the winter, including the general furniture for the 4th bedroom. Regarding the dogs, the neighbour occasionally breeds Catlan mountain dogs and so there are young puppies in their spacious garden for a few weeks once every four months or so. It was unfortunate for you that your visit occurred at this time. They are good friends and have a more rural property nearby so I will speak to them about relocating any puppies during house rental periods.
