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. For the individual apartments, visit El Badiu here, and El Jardi here.

Description

Centered within the historic heart of the city, this vacation home rental in Girona spans over five hundred 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. 

The smaller El Jardi apartment has been cleverly designed in an open plan with wide living and dining areas and a slim, slate-grey kitchen concealed behind a screen. Across the hallway are two double bedrooms and one bath. Finished in oak floors, glass, and enormous Corten steel doors, juxtaposed with the original exposed stone walls, the ground floor apartment opens out to a wisteria-shaded garden and courtyard with a black concrete plunge pool redesigned from the original cistern.

El Badiu duplex apartment above 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.       

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Wifi throughout, Plasma satellite cable TV with Apple TV and video library, DVD and sound system with iPhone docking, music library and CD player, laundry facilities. Firewood for the fireplace provided. Optional additional services include: daily housekeeping, private chef, daily breakfast, grocery purchase, child care, baby cot and chair, car hire and private garage space available upon request.

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.

    Exceptional Alemanys 5!

    We rented the entire property of Alemanys 5 from Oct.16 to Oct. 23, 2015. It may have been the highlight of our two week trip. The pictures actually don’t do the property justice. It is stunning -, a great mix of modern and old, and perfectly equipped with a wonderful layout. We were greeted by Montse who showed us through all the ins and outs of the house. We even met the owner, Juan, who agreed to be our chef for a day during our week. We learned to make fideua and spent a great portion of the day shopping and cooking with him. It made such a great memory.

    Juan supplied us with very good directions in English and in Spanish because it is a little tricky to get to. There is a very helpful elevator on the ground floor for moving in, but then the stairs are easily manageable after that. We had so much room to spread out in the property. It was really a shame to have to leave it during the day. The views are beautiful and the church bells are great background music. We loved that there was a restaurant/bar right in front of our building that provided takeaway as well as eat in food.

    I would highly recommend this property for families and groups such as ours (8 women of various ages on a Spanish adventure). The home is even recognized around town as a prime property. Shop owners were excited to hear we stayed in the beautiful Alemanys 5!

    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.

    What a truly amazing home. We could not fault the design, and attention to detail. My guests were all super impressed, and I have certainly raised the bar when it comes to our long yearly long weekend together. Perfect location for exploring the glorious winding passages, buildings and piazzas of Girona. All in all a perfect few days away.

    Stunning place to see Girona
    5 of 5
    Wonderful spot to take in Girona. Greeting was wonderful and very helpful. Great place for adults to enjoy or older families. There are stairs so careful for small babies or elderly people who would have trouble climbing steps in this part of Girona. Amazing architecture!

    Fabulous property and location!
    5 of 5
    One of the nicest houses I have ever set foot in – modern and tastefully decorated, set within the frame of this historical property. The location in the old town of Girona suited us perfectly and we received prompt and friendly help from the lovely Montse with everything from taxi bookings to restaurants and shops.

    We would love to come back!

    Wonderful Apartment in Girona
    5 of 5
    We were a party of 8 cyclists visiting Girona. The Apartment ticked all the boxes for us. We rented the whole house, which provided more than enough space for all of us. We did alot of self-catering and the apartment was well equipped for all our needs. Overall the apartment design and specification is wonderful. We arrived late at 11pm and Juan had very kindly facilitated our request to have some food and drinks available for us on arrival. This was greatly appreciate. This is a great base for exploring the old town and principle sites in Girona. All in all a great house.

    This place is phenomenal–must be seen to be believed.

    It might be the most beautiful vacation apartment I’ve ever rented–it is perfection. Location is unbeatable, the decor and renovation of the space were done with exquisite taste and attention to detail, everything is comfortable, well thought out, luxurious but still functional. We were very happy here, great little cafe in the square right outside the door plus a short walk to all of Girona’s sights and lots of great restaurants. The owner and property manager were outstanding in their communication and care.

    Beautiful apartment steps from the old wall and cathedral…

    Amazing modern space within the old medieval part of town. Everything is perfect: views, location, bathrooms, beds, stocked kitchen, management, offered parking, comfortable furnishings, etc. I can’t say enough positive things about the apartment. By far one of my best experiences. They were flexible about our check in time. Met us at the apartment and provided a lovely basket of healthy food, coffees and teas. Gave us information and a map about the city. Met us when we checked out.

    Finding the apartment was a fun challenge made easier by directions including photos leading us to the apartment. Having a car was a challenge but we managed.

    I whole heartedly recommend this place.

    Stunning home- we will be back!

    Our kids are ready to sell our house and move to Girona. We have visited Girona many times over the past 20 years and this stay was the most special, because we were able to rent this beautiful home. It is stunning, great location, very clean, well-appointed with everything you might need. We will be back-

    Exceptional Alemanys 5!

    We rented the entire property of Alemanys 5 from Oct.16 to Oct. 23, 2015. It may have been the highlight of our two week trip. The pictures actually don’t do the property justice. It is stunning -, a great mix of modern and old, and perfectly equipped with a wonderful layout. We were greeted by Montse who showed us through all the ins and outs of the house. We even met the owner, Juan, who agreed to be our chef for a day during our week. We learned to make fideua and spent a great portion of the day shopping and cooking with him. It made such a great memory.

    Juan supplied us with very good directions in English and in Spanish because it is a little tricky to get to. There is a very helpful elevator on the ground floor for moving in, but then the stairs are easily manageable after that. We had so much room to spread out in the property. It was really a shame to have to leave it during the day. The views are beautiful and the church bells are great background music. We loved that there was a restaurant/bar right in front of our building that provided takeaway as well as eat in food.

    I would highly recommend this property for families and groups such as ours (8 women of various ages on a Spanish adventure). The home is even recognized around town as a prime property. Shop owners were excited to hear we stayed in the beautiful Alemanys 5!
