Stay: Alemanys 5

Costa Brava, Spain
08.24.2011 | by: Meghan

I wrote an article for the September issue of Travel + Leisure about five amazing homes that are owned and rented out by notable designers, so if you stay in one, it’s like getting intimate access to their personal aesthetic and style whims, not to mention book collections, meaningful objects, ephemera and favorite pieces of furniture. The online version–The World’s Coolest Rental Homes–was expanded to 15 homes, some which you may have seen on designtripper and some that you haven’t. I’ll be highlighting a few favorites in the coming weeks.

For starters, Alemanys 5 is beautifully renovated 16-century house situated in the center of Girona’s old town–“one of the best kept medieval cities in Spain,” insists the owner. It was a crumbling mess when Spanish architect Anna Noguera and her husband, Juan Manuel Ribera, fell in love with the the place 12 years ago and only the stone walls could be saved. But now? You can tell a talented architect got her hands on it. Ancient stone walls play with smooth concrete, clean-lined glass and quiet, modernist furniture. There’s a veranda with views over the old quarter and a pool in the garden, “but what makes it so special is its refurbisment balancing old and new in a search of enjoyment of essentials,” says Juan.

The Details
The five-bedroom residence can be rented as a whole or split into two separate spaces. El Badiu sleeps 2-6; El Jardi sleeps 2-5. Prices start around $280 a night. Rent it at
