Guestbook comments from the manager

My friends and I would like to thank you for renting us your villa in Begur.

We had a wonderful week, and shall return there sometime next year.

The villa is absolutely beautiful, it was exactly to our taste. You have designed it very well. It was a pleasure to meet you. Please thank Eva for the tourist information she gave us. We visited Monells and Madremanya on her recommendation and they were beautiful places.

Excellent villa.

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent villa, actually much better in reality than described. There was the most beautiful views from the many very large windows. There is everything one needs for cooking etc. The rooms were very homely and welcoming. The villa was extremely clean. The owner is very friendly and helpful. It is just 5 minutes walk to the centre of Begur, which is a lovely place with many restaurants and cafes etc. We will definately be returning to this villa. If I were to design a villa, it would be exactly the same as this one.

La Volta

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at La Volta. It was exactly what we expected and matched the description of layout and proximity to the village with great accuaracy.The house was immaculate. The housekeeper and pool/lawn maintenance was perfect. I appreciated the well appointed furnishings in all of the rooms including the kitchen and laundry room. The communication with the owner and manager was very good. There was an air conditioner malfunction and they worked on as soon as they knew it was not working. I would recommend turning the air on a couple of hours before the guest check in to avoid this in the future.

Eva was also a fantastic contact for places to visit, eat and tour in both Begur and Barcelona!

Our family really appreciated the beautiful detail that the architecture put into the house as far as design, function and energy sustainability.

I would stay here again!
