more on our cycling B&B/hotel in Girona

We often get some questions about our stay. We are a guesthouse, however we feel its more like a classic Bed & Breakfast or maybe even a hotel with a personal touch.
Perfect for a cyclist that enjoys the riding or just a relaxed holiday enjoying Girona and Catalunya.

Mick & Wilma are always available for any questions, how to get to town (walk/bus), routes or even getting you to the best restaurants in town. We are happy to help you enjoy your stay. Also for guiding, Mick can take you out on the best gravel or road rides in the region, easy and enjoyable, no getting lost. All with the best stops.

So for one of the best cycling stays in Girona.. Equipe.

 

Spring in Winter in Girona

We have noticed that many guests focus is on spring and autumn for travelling to Girona for riding and running.
If we knew back when we were travelling here how good winter riding can be.. Girona can be spring in winter for sure.
We would have def come december or february. Often its still short weather and much less rain on average then in April for instance. Temperature can be cold in morning (8-10c)  but comfy in afternoons up to 18c. But dry and you will def see some sun. Happiness compared to grey wet days.
So get your kit right bring a bar bag and you got perfect days for long rides as we get hour extra daylight vs the northern countries. Doing the #festive500 is easy here and so much fun.  And in winter we might throw in a guided ride with your 3 night booking.

this was early december 2022!

 

Here is february for you!

 

Girona food culture

Riding, running, Triathlon.. yes its much about sports but for the foody Girona is an absolute gem. From multiple Michelin Star restaurants (Can Roca, BoTic, Massana..) to hip brunch spots like La Fabrica, BionBo, Hors Categorie. But also for real catalan places with amazing Menu del Diaś.  Also the south american cuisine is well represented. Especially mexican is of a very high level.  OM is a very high quality vegetarian restaurant Girona is small but has every budget or cuisine and around the town there are many hot spots too.
Near our house is the great El Cul del Mon, a blend of catalan and Maroccan cuisine.
Oh and did we talk about bakeries? Ride to the best croissants, cakes muffins  or the amazing La Puntual in town. And dont forget the local speciality the Xuixo!

We know the spots to make a trip (also without being a rider or runner) an amazing experience.
Don’t hesitate to ask us for the best spots.
