Things to do
The city of Girona has a rich, detailed, and dramatic history. The first inhabitants of the area were the Iberians. Then came the Romans who built a fortification there, which was named Gerunda. After having been occupied by a number of cultures, Girona finally fell under control by the Holy Roman Empire. In the 12th century, the Jewish community flourished in Girona, and a major Kabbalistic school was built. However, the Catholic kings drove the Jews away from Spain in 1492. Later on, in the 17th to 18th century, Girona fell under siege by the French, and it was conquered by Napoleon in 1809. The walls of the city were destroyed in the 19th century. Today, the city is a rich heritage site full of historic and cultural beauty.
The city’s main historical attractions include its Roman ruins, the charming small streets of its Jewish quarter, the Arab Baths and the magnificent cathedral which dominates the whole city from high above the Onyar River.

What our guests are saying
"If you’re considering renting a luxury villa, look no further. I have been at Ses Vistes twice and have a third trip pending in six months. It is among the nicest homes I have ever seen. But who spends much time in the house? The pool area is unmatched in my experience of renting villas over the years. The pool itself is as large as you’ll find in any private dwelling. The view from the deck is breathtaking."

“Our reunion was wonderful, enjoyed by all! Many thanks for finding Ses Vistes for us – it was perfect, especially with the boat moored to a buoy in the bay below the house! ”

“The setting was surreal, and your pool was the perfect temperature. Even more so, the two women who cleaned the house each morning were incredible! They made a delicious breakfast for everyone each day. Overall, I have no suggestions – there isn’t much to be improved.”
