The house is almost monolithic, yet harbours hidden joys within its heart. Anyone who can escape the heat of the city and enjoy such enchanting views from such cool quietude is fortunate indeed.
Hidden in Girona´s historic quarter, not far from the Catalan capital, is a 16th century building – a real jewel which has been given glamour and radiance by Spanish architect Anna Noguera’s brilliant restoration. The modern interior reveals fascinating contrasts within the rustic natural stone and masonry. As if cut from the stone, the windows let light filter through the surroundings, but hardly any direct sunlight. This creates some wonderful perspectives, giving the rooms an airy depth. They all emanate spaciousness and a cool inner courtyard with garden and pool epitomises its relaxedambience. High above, from the terrace, the view over the city will especially delight all those who appreciate its unique medieval atmosphere.
Like the nearby sea, not far away, vast untamed mountain landscapes beckon visitors to discover a Catalonia that is far from the beaten track.
