Amazing Apartment in Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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..

Heavenly!!!

  • 5 of 5

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

Owner's Response: 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! Alexandre and Nuria

A view from every window!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 4 of 5

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.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Beautiful Girona Apartment--Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a splendid week at Nuria and Alexandre's apartment in Girona. The apartment was lovely and very spacious for our family of four. The kitchen was well appointed and we cooked many delicious meals and ate at the dining room table that overlooked the beautiful city. The views from this apartment are spectacular! From the apartment it is a short walk down the hill to a wonderful local market where we would buy our food for our meals. There are many delicious restaurants nearby. Girona is the perfect location for exploring northeastern Catalonia.

Alexandre and Nuria were very helpful and we would stay again at their lovely apartment !

Girona city

Girona is an interesting city, with good cuisine, cultural events and unique architecture:

• old quarter and jewish quarter.

• many museums and the cathedral

• live music, cinema, theater, film festivals

• beautiful shops

• olympic swimming pools

• segway tours

We highly recommend:

• “girona temps de flors”. This year will take place in may from 11th to 19th . It’s an exhibition of flowers that multiplies the beauty of the city. You have the opportunity to visit the private patios of the manor houses in the old town that are closed the rest of the year.

• 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,

Àrea, the province

The province has everything you could ask for. The area is a cycling mecca. Over 80 professional cyclists from around the world live and train in girona much of the year.

You can find:

• hiking & walking

• excellent michelin rated restaurants

• pga golf

• horseback riding

We highly recommend:

• dalí museum in figueres

• the village of the mediterranean inspiration, cadaqués
