Begur is a coastal resort on Spain’s Costa Brava. Situated on the rocky coastline, Begur is blessed with access to the secluded coves and beaches of the Costa Brava. A Villa for rent in Begur is also within easy reach of nine golf courses, and is a favourite area for those cycling down the coast due to its magnificent medieval heritage.
The coastline of Begur is lined with picturesque coves, which have been cited as the most beautiful on the Costa Brava. Aigua Blava and Fornells are known for their stunningly clear, rich blue waters. Whether you decide to lie on the beach, take a swim or walk around the coast, the peace and beauty will certainly stay with you long after you leave your Begur villa.
The town itself lies in a semi-circle around a rocky outcrop topped with a striking castle, complete with five watch towers. The castle provides a beautiful skyline visible from all of the villas to rent in Begur, and the colours and mood of the castle change as the sun moves. The castle has been protected as a site of National Importance.
The streets surrounding the villas for rent in Begur are narrow and twisting, filled with secret galleries and quiet cafes. The medieval origins of Begur are undeniable, and development has not resulted in the concrete hotels synonymous with much of the Costa Brava, but means that holiday rental villas are surrounded by beautiful traditional buildings. The late night bars are not British pubs or clubs, but vibrant Spanish bars.
There are nine golf courses available to play to anyone staying in a Begur villa, which vary in difficulty, the closest of which are Gerona and Aro Golf Course. Begur also boasts the best scuba diving in Spain, with the only protected national marine park.
Walking, horse riding and cycling holidays to Begur are hugely popular all year round.
Sa Riera was nothing more than a fishing village a few years ago, but due the popularity of the holiday rentals in Begur, the astonishingly beautiful beach and calm clear waters, it has become a great place to take a villa to rent in Begur, just 20 minutes walk from the centre. Tourist facilities are flourishing, and from here, day trips to the Medes Islands can be taken.
Sa Tuna, the next cove around is equally as beautiful, centred around a 14th century fountain and medieval watchtower.
With an average of 2,500 hours of sun a year, and an average annual temperature of 16°C, Begur holiday rentals are great to rent all year round. Summers are long and warm, often reaching up to 30°C during the days. In winter, cycling, walking and golf remain very popular activities, as temperatures rarely dip below 12°C.
