Can Cocollona is an independent house located in the Girona district of Sant Narcís, the city’s patron saint. Can Cocollona is painted in white and built traditionally under the concept of garden city. Outside you can find an ideal yard to relax, read, enjoy the company of other travelers or just lie in a hammock.
It is located in the center of Girona, ten minutes away from the Barri Vell (historical center) and at four minutes walking distance from the train station, AVE and buses. It is possible to arrive from the station in a and quick walk from the Central Park. From there, you’ll be able to see the traditional houses of Sant Narcís, and at the end of the walk across the street you will find Can Cocollona. The house consists of 160 m2 spread over two floors, on the first floor you’ll find the common areas: the dining room – living room, kitchen, bathroom, courtyard with garage and small bicycle studio.
Furthermore, the house has a hair dryer, a washing machine, internet access via Wi-Fi and computers in case you need to consult something and / or work.
The courtyard of Can Cocollona is the most emblematic meeting point of the house. This is where we meet and share with each other how the day went, what plans we have, exchange experiences with other travelers and organize activities together: meals, barbecues, board games… One can also relax quietly, read or listen to music while swinging on the hammock or sitting on one of the recycled furniture, some made with closet doors from the same house or tire wheels that are now puffs.
The living room – dining room
The dining room and living room is the heart of Can Cocollona, where we receive our guests for the first time and serve breakfast every morning with a lot of care. It is also a space for work and inspiration for those who are digital nomads and need to work during their stay at Can Cocollona. In this dining room you can find recycled furniture, such as the central buffet where we serve breakfast, which once was a door in an old closet in the house. We painted both the wardrobe and the center table as well as the old classic style chairs in white giving it a worn effect. We also upholstered the chairs ourselves, a clear example of DIY (do it yourself).
