This house is spectacular - fabulously well equipped and comfortable, the attention to detail is wonderful and the location in Girona's old town cannot be beaten. We had a glorious long weekend enjoying the spring weather and delicious local food, made even better by the time spent lounging in the private garden and terrace upstairs. The welcome basket, help with taxi booking and ease of arranging just made it all complete. Thank you all Alemanys 5 team!

Modern luxury in the heart of the beautiful medieval old town of Girona
We rented both apartments that make up Alemanys 5, for a group of 10 people. The house is spacious, practical and luxurious – and the architectural design works beautifully and is inspiring. As a result, it is not only a great place to relax and unwind, but it is also quite an uplifting place to stay.
Other highlights: the house layout makes it very easy and flexible to eat inside or outside depending on the weather – we were lucky, had great weather for 2 weeks, and ate outside all the time. If you rent the whole house, you can have breakfast and supper on the top balcony and lunch under the shady pergola on the first floor.
The pool is brilliant – after cycling or walking in the morning, we all loved having a refreshing dip immediately we got back home.
The location is unbeatable – you are within a short walking distance of everything in the old town.
And the owner (and the local housekeeper) are very helpful – and went the extra mile to make sure our stay was perfect in every regard.
Absolutely no hesitation in recommending (and urging!) you to have a holiday in this lovely house.

Spectacular Apartment - Best in Girona
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.
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. Shopowners were excited to hear we stayed in the beautiful Alemanys 5!

A wonderful, chic house in the heart of the city
We rented the whole house for five days in June, planned for a long booked visit to El Celler de can Roca. It really doesn't get much better than this. Girona is a beautiful interesting city, we had some great food and wine every night we were there - including at El Celler which was amazing - but in some ways the house was the real star of the week. The architecture blending old and new is marvellous, the location is great and Montse who met us and showed us round was lovely and helpful. One morning we were woken up by two young Spanish guys wanting to know if the house was really available for rent or whether the website was just part of a scam. The answer is it is just as good as the pictures, if not better.

Perfect blend of modern and ancient in Girona's Old Town.
Perfect remodel in a perfect location. Great rooms, splendid views, and nice indoor/outdoor space; you can actually roll the kitchen table, which seats eight, out onto the covered patio. Don't need a car; take the train and cab. Allow at least three full days to explore the old town. Upstairs unit's second and third bedroom are best for one adult each. Lots of common space upstairs if rent both units.

Eine excellente Herberge für alle die gediegene Architektur und sensiblen Umgang mit alter Baukultur zu schätzen wissen, moderne Architektur in altem Ambiente in Perfektion. Dazu das Flair dieser Kleinstadt mit der langen Geschichte und der traumhaften Lage am Zusammenfluss der vier Flüsse Onyar, Ter, Güell und Galligants.
Es ist jeden Tag ein Vergnügen, nach den Stadtspaziergängen in diese Wohnung zurück zu kehren, die perfekte Verschmelzung von Tradition, Geschichte und moderner Wohnkultur. Eingebettet in die Häuserzeilen der historischen Altstadt, bieten die sensibel gestalteten Freiräume mit Pool und Terrasse Aufenthaltsräume im Freien von enormer Qualität. Und ausserdem ein idealer Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Vulkanlandschaft der Region oder bis Barcelona.

The Perfect Place to Stay for 5+ Cyclists
This is the perfect place to stay while visiting Girona. We were 5 cyclists who rented the complete house (two separate apartments) so that we each had our own bedroom. It is an ideal location right in the center of Girona with all modern amenities included even though the house is in the old city and inside an old stone building. The attention to detail and the finishing inside the house was phenomenal. We enjoyed the outdoor decks and the plunge pool as well as the audio and TV surround sound system.
Juan's help with the booking and with transportation were great and the housekeeper that met us was very helpful. She even drove us to the train station on our last day. I would recommend this accommodation to anybody visiting Girona. It is where we will be staying when we visit Girona next time.

Wonderful and memorable apartment rental
Stayed in this apartment (family of five) in July 2011.
Absolutely wonderful architectural design, cool (literally and metaphorically), minamlist and classic at the same time.
Great location in old Girona.
Such a great place, we spent far more time in the apartment than we had planned, even entertaining some friends who live in Girona. They were blown away by the place too !
Oh, and great service by the owner (by email) and the locally based manager.

Rented the entire building for one week, with spouse, friend and two 11 year olds. Amazing structure, well preserved and updated with wood, metal and stone. All amenities included and top notch. Location very good for exploring old city, but difficult to drive to, although garage helped greatly. Pool was very refreshing in the heat. Staff/owners very friendly and helpful. Would definitely return!

About the neighbourhood
Girona is a charming small city located 100 km North of Barcelona and 100 km South of Perpignan (France).
It is one of the richest cities in Spain. Girona has his own International Airport offering regular flights to more than 50 cities around Europe. By the end of 2012 Girona will be a stop of the high-speed train that is to link Barcelona and Paris.
Girona has one of the most important mediaeval quarters in Spain, plenty of interesting historical buildings, one of the best-preserved old Jewish quarters in Europe and a magnificent Cathedral featuring the widest Gothic nave in the world with a breadth of 22 meters.
The city also offers a vibrant shopping district with a combination of traditional goods and renowed international brands. The walking areas include plenty of cozy coffees and restaurants that offer a variety of culinary experiences.
Girona is also well known for its cultural life. As well as a number of museums, the city has the most important autumn festival in Spain, “Temporada Alta”, offering three months of avant-garde international music, dance and theater. In addition, several jazz, classical, rock, flamenco, traditional or world music concerts are programmed during all the year.
Furthermore, the relatively small size of the city and its urban structure means all these activities can be enjoyed without having to take the car.
Girona is also a renowned culinary destination. Home of exquisite “sea and mountain” recipes, the city hosts “El Celler de Can Roca” ranked second best restaurant in the world. Several Michelin starred restaurants are less than one hour's drive from the property.
During wintertime, a good option is to take advantage of the Pyrenees ski resorts that can be reached by car in less than two hours. The Girona area is also renowed as a wellness and spa destination, offering top quality thermal baths, spa and wellness centres.
Last but not least, the city of Barcelona is only at one-hour by road or train from Girona.
