This lovely villa is located in a residential area within a short walk to the centre of Begur and just a five minute drive from the most beautiful beaches of the Costa Brava coast. The location makes it an ideal place to stay for anybody wishing to walk into the restaurants and bars in the evening. The house is south facing and gets the sun on the pool and terraces all day long. We provide Free Wifi to our guests. The living accommodation is open plan and there is a spacious terrace off the sitting room which has a covered area providing a shady spot for when it is really hot. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a BBQ area big enough to satisfy any chefs desires conveniently located just outside the kitchen. The master bedroom has an en suite shower room and there is a family bathroom with a bath. The top terrace is child friendly with a safety gate to prevent the little ones from accessing the pool .Whilst we say the house accommodates six people the sixth bed is a pull out. We can provide a travel cot and high chair.
This house is well furnished with comfy seating both inside and out. There are sun loungers around the pool and seating areas on both levels. The garden is terraced but also has a large flat area to the side of the house.
The pool is 8 x 4 m with Roman steps into it. It is solar heated so generally 5C more than a non heated pool at any time.
There is a very well stocked supermarket within a couple of minutes walk. The centre of the village is a pleasant walk away with lots of restaurants and small interesting shops and boutiques.
Golf, cycling, riding and walking: For the golfer there are a number of local courses within a very short distance. At Pals and at Emporda one of the best courses in Spain. There is no shortage of choice in this region with courses to suit all levels from the most challenging to the more forgiving. It is up to you. Club hire is available in most places and it is relatively easy to organise tee times.
There is a very friendly English speaking golf society locally if you wish to take part in any of their competitions that is easily arranged.
This area has a large number of well mapped and signposted designated walking and cycling paths. We can arrange hire of mountain bikes for you by the day or by the week. Discover the hidden Catalonia off the beaten track through tiny medieval villages, vinyards and fields of wild lfowers, rice, wheat and sunflowers. Heaven on earth!
We can arrange riding for you or simply a quiet hack along one of the beaches, through the forest tracks or countryside.
Food and Wine:
This area is renowned for its great food and wine.
El Bulli was best Restaurant in the World for many years and during that time many young chefs worked in their kitchen. There are now a number of wonderful restaurants in Catalonia owned and run by these former students of Ardrian Ferran.
Apart from these 'top end' places (which if you ask David or Phil Fleming about they will be happy to fill you in) local Catalan food is excellent. Prices are exceptionally reasonable and a basic 10/15€ menu del dia can be a fantastic culinary experience.
The local markets have wonderful fresh fish, shellfish, vegetables and fruit if you wish to dine at home or take a picnic to the beach.
Wine here is also great with a wide variety of styles and prices. Cava tasting is a must!
Activities for children: The local autority in Begur and in fact most of Catalonia are very aware that a happy child on holiday is the key to happy parents.
Almost every evening throughout the summer there will be something for children to do in Begur between 7 and 9 pm. Of course that doesn't mean your children have to go home at that time. In fact most Spanish families are only thinking of coming out at that time. Restaurants are used to children dining with their parents at any time of the night and children are welcome everywhere.
At the park in Begur there are bouncy castles inflated from 6pm, there is usually some 'activities' in the church square and on some evenings dancing for all ages from 8 to 80! Good fun for all the family.
