Alemenys 5, Girona Spain

Girona is located right in between Barcelona and Perpignan, France in Catalonia at the confluence of four rivers; the Ter, Onyar, Galligents and Güell. It’s a great homebase for exploring this unique part of the world. The town itself has a well preserved medieval center and one of the best preserved Jewish quarters in Europe. The recently restored Alemenys 5, owned by architect Anna Noguera and her husband Juan Manuel Ribera would be an ideal place to stay while seeing the area.  Ms. Noguera has accomplished with this property what the Spanish seem so adept at doing, which is to incorporate a modern aesthetic into an historic setting. It’s at once sleek and of the moment but also comforting and beautiful. The house can be rented as a whole or divided into two smaller apartments.
