Beautiful apartment with spectacular views over the city of Girona.
Amazing Apartment in Great Location
Beautiful top floor apartment in historic building. We found Alexandre to be very helpful and arranged Airport transfers with him, which were seamless.
The apartment was spacious, well appointed and immaculate. Fantastic views over the City and beyond. It is in a quiet residential area but still close to the Old Town, although you should be aware that the old part of Girona has many steep steps - not a problem for us and helped work off the lovely food and drink!!
We were only a little unlucky that the roof terrace was not open as it was under going cleaning.
Thanks again to Alexandre and Nuria for a lovely short break in your apartment..

Dearest Alexandre and Nuria,
you have an amazingly beautiful and peaceful set up in Athenou-Penthouse. You are the most gracious hostesses that one immediately feels as being part of your family; as you mentioned it is difficult to get into a Catalonian home but far more difficult to leave, indeed! Our last day was magical savoring the delicious Ratafia, your company, the history of your family the beauty of the building and garden unexpectedly time flew so fast that by the time we got to the station we missed our train for just a second (made a mistake with departure time).Thank you both for making our stay a memorable one and for driving us from and to the train station, for sure we are planning to go back for at least a month. Much love to both of you,
Fernando and Lila
Dear Fernando and Lila,
thank you for your words. It was a pleasure to share with you such a little time. What a pity to miss the train, fortunately it was not the flight! We really hope to see you again in Girona! Hugs!

A view from every window!
The views were fantastic! You are up above the historic part of Girona and can see the beautiful rooftops and church spires. It's well situated in the most beautiful part of Girona. Be prepared to walk and be able to climb the stairs to the top floor of the building. You will be greatly rewarded when you reach the top.
The hosts were very kind, helpful and responsive to any questions. They also offer tours and have a generous list of restaurant recommendations. The food in Girona is incredible!!!
Gracias por una estancia bien lindo!
Wonderful views and great hosts in Girona
The apartment is spacious and very comfortable. And it is clean, beds are comfortable and couch is great and kitchen is quilted large. Ideas a great place to stay for two nights or two weeks.The hosts are very kind and helpful. The views from the apartment are just great. There only downside is that it is on what is basically the fourth floor but it gave us good exercise. You have to be OK with stairs anyway if you visit Girona.
Spacious, quiet apartment built into the old wall with a wonderful view of Girona.
We so enjoyed our stay in Girona in the Athenou penthouse. The apartment was spacious and inviting with a view of the entire city including the cathedral towers and Pyrenees mountains in the distance. Alexandre and Nuria were wonderful hosts. Girona is a wonderful spot to visit with its old town, excellent restaurants, and it is bike friendly. Alexandre and Nuria can store your bike in a locked garage and you're in walking distance of Bike Breaks Girona. Thanks so much Nuria and Alexandre.
Thank you for your words. We had really nice days with you. All the best.

• casa museu masó (house museum masó). Rafel masó is the representative architect of the noucentisme (a catalan cultural movement of the early 20th century) in girona. You can visit his family house in the center of the old town. If you stay in athenou apartments for minimum one week, the owner will give you two tickets for visit this museum, because he's very proud of his grandfather,
