Marty purchased this Apartment in 2006
Why Marty chose el Carme
Since 1997 we have spent part of our time in Girona, Spain.
What makes this Apartment unique
We are walking distance from the center of Girona (15 min walk), yet from the master bedroom and living room the views are of a mountain side which gives the feel of being in the country. On occasion there are goats which will visit the hill which is a welcomed site.

Wonderful family accommodation
We stayed here as a family of 4 with two small children in August for two nights. Communication and check in was easy with comprehensive directions and guide from Marty. The accommodation was very clean and well equipped with everything we needed. The apartment is large and light and the beds were comfy! The kitchen had everything you needed to cater for small fussy kids including an oven! Which we had lacked at other accommodation during our Catalonian adventure, so this was great.
The location is great for exploring the city, and about 10/15 minute walk from the beginning of the city walls which we walked along various times!
We absolutely loved Girona and would recommend it for anyone wanting a beautiful old city to explore and we’d love to come back and stay at Marty’s again!
Very well resourced appartment
The perfect start to our holiday in Spain. We flew to Girona and it was a simple bus journey to the town where we easily located the appartment via Google maps. Check in was very convenient and fast.
It is just out of the main town which was perfect for us as it was very quiet to sleep in during day or night. A supermarket was very nearby which was great but we ate out a few times as there was such choice in the incredibly scenic Girona.
When we had a query Marty got back immediately and the appartment was brilliantly resourced- although I didn't realise until we left when I was checking for kids toys list in random places. We enjoyed a morning coffee each day and would have used the juicer had we seen it but everything you could possibly need was there. Even down to the information books and maps about the area and the choice of book fiction which was great as we eased ourselves into holiday mode
Plus an added bonus is being able to say we stayed in a professional cyclist's appartment in Girona. I'm going to be dropping that into conversations for a while.
Wonderful. Thank you Marty.
Very quiet and roomy apartment
The apartment is on the top floor of an older apartment building. It faces away from the street and is very quiet at night. It's about a 10 to 15 minute walk to the 'Barri Vell', the medieval part of the city. At the time we stayed, there was no internet access. Marty is aware of this and has promised to install an access point shortly. The water heater was 'finicky' by a quick call and Marty 'coached' me through to solve the problem. Marty is aware of this problem and has promised to fix it ASAP.
Modern, surprisingly spacious apartment, only a short walk from Girona centre
The apartment is a short- fifteen minute walk- from the old town. It has everything you need for a city break. The kitchen facilities are excellent, and the couch in the living area is really comfortable. The bedrooms are modern and clean and quite spacious. All the windows have wind down shutters which keep the flat really cool. There are two air con units in the building which were really useful during the recent heat wave! Girona,for the unacquainted, is a really laid- back cosmopolitan Catalan town. There are hundreds of bars and restaurants in the town and plenty of museums and cultural highlights. The Costa Brava is only an half hour drive away and the French border about an hour. Girona is a Mecca for cyclists and there are some great rides from the backdoor. The famous Els Angles is about 2 km away and Rocacorba is a little further. Although the flat is on the seventh floor, I had no problem squeezing my road bike in with me. Marty was extremely helpful with advice and answered my texts quickly. Moreover, the price of the apartment was very reasonable!
Comfortable and convenient
The apartment was clean and well-appointed (my daughters particularly appreciated the swing seat!). It's very conveniently located for visiting Girona (15 min walk) and for the station for buses and trains (20 mins walk). Marty was very helpful in arranging our stay, even posting the apartment keys to our home. Girona is a beautiful and fascinating city.
clean and close to shopping
Very clean apartment. Close to central Gerona and the shopping. Walked with the kids who were 8 and 10 and they managed fine. Marty was very responsive and helpful! Enjoyed our stay! We rented a bike from Marty as well and it was waiting in the apartment for us and we left it in the apartment. Super convenient!
Can Bici is on the top floor with great views of the countryside & river. It is located just minutes from the Old Quarter and is on the bus route. The train, bus & car rental locations are only a 15 minute walk.
