Carrer de Pau Vila i Dinarés is a road near Parc Migdia, where you can usually find a space, unless it's lunchtime (1-3pm). It is a 10 minute walk back to the apartment.
In the apartment there is plenty of information to set you off in the right direction and this is backed up by insider guides online - have a look at Pinterest or at the 'Days Out from Girona' blog on this site, to orientate yourself on the information available and coming up.
While you are waiting for the others to get ready, relax on the terrace or the sofa with a good book or film. In our Girona apartment, you won't be short of entertainment. There are also board games for the little ones and not so little ones alike. I'm not expecting you to have much time for any of this, though it will give your feet a well-earned rest from all the sightseeing.
Good connection. Reliable. Free. (just don't accidentally press the invisible button on the side...)
Our apartment has air-conditioning in the double bedroom. When the appropriate doors are closed, this also cools effectively one of the twin rooms also. The other bedrooms either have electric fans or direct access to the great outdoors. Girona is humid in Summer because of the river and it gets hot, but only really hot in July and August, so it has never been viable for us to put in more air-con and we care about the environment a bit too...
To keep the apartment lovely and fresh, open the door at the back to the terrace and the door at the front to the balcony and let the breeze waft through. This tunnel effect is pretty efficient so use the door jams along the route, to keep our friendly neighbours happy.
The fact can't be avoided, that in many cities, if an apartment were situated 2 minutes walk from the train and bus station, this might indicate a less than salubrious area. Not so in Girona. We are surrounded by shops, cafes, restaurants and strangely but reassuringly, medical clinics. Here are some additional gadgets to give you peace of mind.
