What we like about this property

Rescued from ruin by architect Anna Noguera, this vacation home rental in Girona highlights the ancient beauty of this 16th century townhouse with a skillful and subtle restoration. We love the clean, spare spaces, the elegantly employed materials, and the sensitively integrated design that brings the past alive for modern living. The five bedroom home can be divided into two separate living spaces or rented as a whole.

Check out the other unit, the El Jardi Apartment, here.

Description

Centered within the historic heart of the city, this vacation home rental in Girona spans over 500 years of history. 

Discovered by Girona native and architect Anna Noguera and her husband, the building was somewhat of a puzzle, with evidence of a long evolution of add ons throughout the centuries. The irregular and slightly awkward layout was stripped down to the original stone walls and in the process, Napoleonic munitions, 16th-century household items and the walls of a 1st century Roman villa were unearthed. Refashioning the warren of small, maze-like rooms, the building is now a spacious five-bedroom residence (which can be divided into two separate living spaces or rented as a whole).

Adamant about preserving the historic character of the building, Noguera used modern materials such as concrete and dark steel to complement the traditional stone, oak and terra cotta, reinterpreting the old through a dialogue with the new. 

This apartment complex encompasses the top two floors and is a spacious, light filled space with a large living room with a double-sided fireplace that opens onto the spectacular south-facing veranda, a fully equipped gourmet kitchen and dining space, and views over the old quarter of Girona down to the garden and plunge pool. There is a large en suite master and two junior suites with room for six guests or ten if the entire house is rented.

Showcasing its graceful history, this modern, minimalist make-over is an elegantly crafted homage to the past.

AROUND

A small medieval city and university town with fabulous Catalonian restaurants, shops, bars and cafes, historic Girona sits along the River Onyar where the walled Old Quarter (Barri Vell) features the ancient Roman rampart fragments of the Vella fortress woven through the tiny streets and alleyways. 

Bordered to the north by the the beautiful and protected Garrotxa region and to the south by the Gavarres national park and the Costa Brava, the area is surrounded by some of Catalonia’s most breathtaking natural beauty. When headed to the Costa Brava don’t miss El Canadell, a hidden gem of a  beach in the picturesque fishing village of Calella de Palafrugell.

The area is also home to the authentic and picturesque medieval towns of  Besalu, Figueres (home of surrealist painter Salvador Dali), Santa Pau, Castellfollit de la Roca, Olot and Alta, all in less than an hour’s drive. Going back over two thousand years, the ancient Roman Road route is a fascinating drive through the region. The attractive French market town of Perpignan is just over an hour north and the medieval town of Vic is an hour west along the breathtaking (c25) road. Both the ski resorts of the Pyrenees and Barcelona are within an hour’s drive in either direction.

  • Edward R., September 9, 2018

    Rarely do you find a place that is so functional and so well designed in a part of a city that is as central to what makes the city special. Add to this a concierge to help with restaurants and local knowledge and you have a the key ingredients for a wonderful stay in Girona.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at El Badiu. It’s in a great, ‘old’ part of Girona that is barely accessible to cars. I would consider the property architecturally significant in how the owner has rehabilitated a very old building in to a modern living space. So many details of the living space are really well thought out and executed.

  • Karen S., April 2, 2018

    Fabulous apartment in the old quarter.

    We stayed for 3 nights, but wished it had been longer. The apartment was amazing. Beautifully crafted spaces within an old building. It felt as though we were truly living in the centre of Girona. Walking distance from everything but very private at the same time. Montse was extremely helpful in settling us in and making our stay so special. Highly recommended.

    Manual is a first rate man and he and his wife have done a magnificent rehab job on this ancient stone tower overlooking the old city of Girona. His wife is the talented architect and I was appreciative of all the 21st conveniences seamlessly blended into this space.

    We greatly appreciate the reception on Friday night, considering that we arrived late in Girona. Both Juan Manuel and Montse gave us all the possible facilities. As for the house, we have no words: location, facilities, decoration … It is perfect.

    This apartment is stunning. Right in the heart of Girona’s old town. For lovers of architecture, it’s a real treat. The level of detailing and the quality of the finishes are out of this world. Manual and the property manager Montse were great to deal with and very responsive.

  • Lenke, March 17, 2017

    Juan’s place is beautiful and well equipped. We (4 adults and a baby) had a wonderful time and enjoyed the modernity and comfort of this beautifully renovated property. Easy walking distance to anything in town (downhill there and uphill on the way back) – and bumpy with the baby.
