We booked La Magrana for a family holiday with 5 adults and 2 kids aged 4 and 8. The villa is located a 15 minute walk from the centre of Girona in a hilltop location which is quiet and residential. Having the centre so close is amazing, and yet you don't need to venture into town as the villa has everything you need; a great pool with sunloungers for everyone, gardens, swings for the kids, a large outdoor eating area.... The bedrooms are large and each has it's own bathroom. The top bedroom has two beautiful balconies with views over the city. It really is beautiful. 5 of our party arrived by plane and were met by Lluis and given a tour of the house. 2 drove from the UK and there's ample parking, a large garage and space to store bikes. La Magrana was a great place to spend our hilidays and we hope to stay again. The kids loved the pool and we all loved having time together in such a beauitiful city and villa. Thanks Lluis!
Excellent property everything we needed for a brilliant cycling holiday. Myself and 5 friends rented this villa for a week. It is spacious and well appointed. We all had our own bedroom and bathroom.
Large garage which was needed to store the bikes.
Great views of the city of Girona and surrounding countryside.
Property is situated near the top of a big hill so if you don't like walking or have small children then you'll need to use the bus service to town which we did a few times and is good.
The owner Lluis was very helpful and easy to communicate with.
I would highly recommend this property.
We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful villa overlooking Girona. From the gorgeous terrace and swimming pool to the delightful terrace and elegant rooms, it was wonderful and really well appointed. Lluis was also really helpful and friendly! It's just a few minutes walk down to the city (and even the walk back up is not that hard!). I didn't want to leave!
We absolutely loved our stay in this beautiful, clean and new, with quality furnishings, house. The house is perfect; it’s an amazing property, very well maintained and extremely clean with wonderful views over the mountains and the town of Girona.
The landscaped garden is beautiful and we were able to spend pleasant moments in the deckchairs at the edge of the swimming pool, with the view of the hills.
The accommodation is spacious with everything on hand to make our stay comfortable. The rooms are big with comfortable beds and most of them with private bath.
The well cared inner garden gives a special light all around what provides a relaxing atmosphere in the large sitting room and dining-room
A very short walk to the town of Girona and a short drive to several medieval towns made our stay perfect.
It’s a house I really recommend and where I would love to come back again.
The owner, Lluis, is very attentive and helpful.
We had an excellent stay at La Magrana in Girona. The villa lies on a hill with a great view over Girona city. It's a 15 mins walk to the city center. We were with 11 people and we all enjoyed our stay very much. The rooms are excellent: spacious, design and with good bed. There are many great bathrooms and terraces. The swimming pool with the BBQ is also very nice. We had very good contact with Lluis, the owner of the house. We is very kind guy and really made us feel at home. We might go back to this place next year!
We (3 families: 6 adults and 6 kids) spent in the villa 3 days in the villa in the beginning of December and I want to declare — it was awesome!
Starting with the villa itself.
It’s perfectly situated in some fancy and even-too-quite (if you ever been to Spain, you know, what I’m saying, ha-ha) neighbourhood of Girona. Only several minutes drive to the city centre. I don’t remember exactly, how long it takes, because every time I would just enjoy all those beautiful landscapes: winter skies, cows on the field (can you imagine?!), some abandoned bridge constructions… Everything around was so picturesque — totally deserves seeing.
Design and amenities.
As an architect, I can only say, that those guys, who built and decorate this house did a lot of work and put their souls making it stylish and absolutely comfortable. From the very beginning it feels like home (but better). It’s warm (guys, it’s unbelievable! It was December! In Catalunya!). You need something? It has it all, but not too much, only what we would really need. Like Damn, I’ve left my mixer at home! — Here you go. Or What about a cup of coffee? Here you have 2 (TWO!) coffee machines with the capsules. The tea bags, salt, spices, tissues, some dish washer soap, cake plate (for kids, that we specifically needed, but have never asked for), wine glasses, anything, really.
There is a nice garden with a nice pool (have to come back in Summer to try it out), some kids stuff, the BBQ, huge table, some clean fat cats that come and go and like being feeded. I loved it, even although it was raining a lot.
That was something. One can give him a medal for Generosity, Patience, Non-Laziness and Being a Coolest Host Ever. He even bought us coal for the barbecue. You need a restaurant for kids? He will recommend you a dozen and send you their locations. He won’t be like Don’t touch this, don’t touch that. Kids can’t go there! No!!! He lets us do everything that we wanted. And I hope we were good guests!
There was nothing, nothing, nothing bad about our stay. Like high standard 5***** hotel without annoying cleaning ladies. Thank you so much! We will come back, that’s for sure.
