Culture, cuisine, and charm: the three essential ingredients for the perfect weekend away. Throw in a dash of world-class shopping and spas, a twist of coastal romance and some of the best golf courses in Europe, and you’re really on to a winner. A stone’s throw from Barcelona and the Costa Brava region, Girona really has got it all. It’s home to the avant-garde Spanish cultural fiesta Temporada Alta, has one of the best-preserved medieval quarters in the country, and boasts a café culture scene that never sleeps.
With a city that’s brimming with character, you need accommodation to match – and Alemanys 5, a beautiful conceptual rental property, has personality in abundance. Situated in the oldest part of Girona’s ‘Barri Vell’ (Old District), it is inside Girona’s original city walls, and stands opposite one of the oldest gates. The building underwent many alterations since its original construction – but it has now been stripped of extraneous additions, and is close to its original form.
