It is a typical independent house in the traditional neighbourhood of Sant Narcís, which is also the patron of the city. The house is all painted in white and with a traditional construction under the “Garden City” concept.
It has two terraces with more than 150m2 between the two of them, with different spaces to share, relax, read, enjoy the company of other travelers or simply lie in a hammock.
In the city center of Girona, 10 minutes far from the Old Town and 4 minutes to the train and bus station. To get to the house from the station is a quick walk through the Central Park. From there the houses of Sant Narcís begin and at the end of the promenade on the other side of the street is Can Cocollona located.
The house comprises 160m2 distributed in two floors. On the first floor there are the common spaces, the living room – dining room, the kitchen, a bathroom and the terrace with a garage for bikes.
The terrace is the main meeting point of the house. The majority of the time is where we get together and talk about how was our day, which plans we have, we exchange experiences of other trips and we organize activities together such as meals, barbecues, board games… At the same time is a place to relax, read, listen to music… while swinging in a hammock or sitting on one of our recycled furniture, some made out of closet doors from the house or with tires.
THE LIVING ROOM – DINING ROOM
It is Can Cocollona’s heart. Where we welcome our guests for the first time and we serve breakfast everyday. It is also a working place, an inspirational place for those digital nomads who have to work during their stay with us. Furthermore, it’s a meeting place for the travelers, to share experiences, opinions and meals.
In the living room there is recycled furniture, the central buffet where breakfast is served used to be a closet in the house. We painted the closet/showcase, the main table and the old classic style chairs, we painted them in white and we also upholstered them, a clear example of DIY.
