About Sarah King

Hi, we (Steve and Sarah) live in the UK and own a very well established Plumbing and Heating business employing a number of engineers. We have also been involved in local property rentals for 15 years plus, providing property for the both the student and private sector.

Sarah King purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sarah King chose Sa Riera

We had been looking for a number of years for a suitable place for a holiday home and were introduced to Begur by friends. It had absolutely everything we could possibly have asked for. Although the villa is only 5 minutes walk from the beach, even in the height of the season it is incredibly peaceful. The area has an abundance of beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and, according to my husband, excellent golf courses. We are also very keen runners and cyclists and area is full of marked cycle and walking routes. It truly is a beautiful area and every time I have to leave it gets a little bit harder!

What makes this villa unique

The property itself sits high with stunning views across the valley. It is split over 3 floors giving 2 separate terrace areas and a large garden area if people are seeking a bit of space. The main terrace area and pool is a fantastic extension of the lounge for indoor/outdoor living. The villa is maintained to a very high standard and extremely well equipped, including underfloor heating inside the villa for autumn/winter/early spring holidays. An added bonus is that the swimming pool can also be heated, if and when required, and also has a small diving board which is great fun for the kids.

Excellent stay in a high quality villa

  • 5 of 5

We were a family party of 8 adults - grandparents (early 70s), parents (early 50s), two grandsons each with a girlfriend (early 20s). The spacious villa accommodated us very comfortably with ample furniture both inside and on the pool and dining terrace outside.

Casa de Reyes is a superb villa presented to a very high quality, very clean, not the least bit dated, and extremely well equipped. The layout is very good, with all the living area on one floor (large open plan lounge, dining and kitchen area, plus utility room and separate WC, inside; and spacious dining area (shaded) and pool terrace outside. In addition to the two en-suite double bedrooms there is a further separate WC and separate large walk-in shower on the bedroom corridor. After arrival, we instantly felt comfortable, relaxed and "at home".

We were welcomed on arrival by the owner's charming local "agent" and were provided with a really comprehensive "starter pack" of essentials. A copious number of pool towels were also waiting for us.

The location of the villa is very convenient for going down to Sa Riera beachfront (several restaurants and tapas bars). It's 5 minutes by car, though parking down there can sometimes be tricky, and 5-10 minutes walk down a lot of steps. Coming back will take longer (!), but it keeps you fit, and is part of the charm of Sa Riera; all holiday villas being up the sides of the wooded valley leading down to the sea. It's a 5 minute drive up to Begur, the splendid little Spanish town at the head of the valley, with a buzzy central plaza, shops, and many more bars and restaurants. The whole area is characterful, caters for tourists, but is not the least bit "tacky", unlike some other areas of the Costa Brava. And there are several other beach villages and small towns within a maximum 20-30 minutes drive, all with a similar unspoilt, classy Spanish atmosphere.

There are several quality supermarkets within a few minutes drive of the villa.

We spent most of our time at the villa relaxing by the pool, and eating, drinking, and playing silly games - classic villa holiday life, in fact, in a villa admirably suited to this.

Thus, yes, we would recommend this villa to any and all of our friends and relatives; and it works perfectly well for families with younger kids - (although perhaps those with toddlers would need to be wary of the steps and the pool).

So thank you to Mr & Mrs King, for enabling us to have a great holiday in the House of the Kings!

Lovely villa with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and spacious villa with all mod cons and a layout that meant that we as grandparents could retreat to the upstairs bedroom and large balcony when respite was required! The large pool was great for adults and children alike and the open plan feel to the living and pool area made life easy and also meant good use of the BBQ. Sa Riera has a great beach and a good selection of restaurants with some varied offers - I think that we tried them all during our stay! We also loved the coastal walks and the access to Begur and even grew to love the steps down and up from the beach!! This whole area is one that offers stunning coastline and access to lots of lovely seaside towns and beaches and we returned to the area after our first visit last year because of this.

Everyone associated with the villa provided us with excellent and friendly service, from Sarah the owner to Ms Canner who lives locally and looks after it day to day; and even the man who cleaned the pool and looked after the garden! This meant that any problems that arose, however minor, were dealt with immediately and this is such a bonus when staying for two weeks as we did. Thanks Sarah and company for a great holiday.

A great week in Casa de Reyes

  • 5 of 5

The villa is even better than it appears in the photographs. It was impeccably clean and very well equipped. The owners could not have been more helpful and efficient. We had a lovely week - swimming, riding, bungee jumping and a trip on a boat. The area offers so much and has some beautiful towns and villages - Begur, Pals and Peratellada (spelling?). We would highly recommend the villa and would very happily return there.

Stunning villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fully equipped, beautifully clean and spacious in a quiet but stunning location with a fabulous pool.

There are a number of gorgeous sandy beaches with the closest only 10 minutes walk down the hill, slightly longer on the way back!

There are some coastal paths for scenic walks.

A hire car is a must just for ease getting about and with super quiet roads the 45 minute journey from the airport is a breeze.

Begur has some lovely shops, nice restaurants and a great Cuban cocktail bar open late. The taxi company was helpful and spoke great English.

We drove to Barcelona for the day, be mindful of the tolls. It took about 2 hours to get there but it's a fantastic city and if you can get an overnight stay you'll see much more! There was all day parking for €10 which is a bargain.

Fabulous place and can't recommend it highly enough and would be back there in a shot!

Owner's Response: Always great to hear when visitors appreciate beautiful Canaluña as much as we do, including the Cuban cocktail bar in Begur! Great info and tips for visiting Barcelona..... thank you. Look forward to seeing you back again soon.

Fantastic spacious villa near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have spent holidays in several villas in this part of the Costa Brava, but Sarah's villa was the pick of the bunch. The villa itself is really spacious, we were on holiday with 4 teenagers and there was plenty of space for everyone to socialise, and for us to escape to the lovely private terrace off the bedroom on the top floor. The villa is perfectly positioned for the lovely beach and restaurants at Sa Riera, in fact we hardly used our car apart from shopping trips. It's a short and very pretty walk around to the long sandy beach at Pals, where there are more restaurants and a golf course. We were lucky enough to be there for the "Fira D'Indians" festival, which involved a lot of dancing and mojitos in the streets of Begur. Overall a memorable holiday and we would love to return one day!

5-10 minute walk down to the beautiful bay of Sa Riera or a couple of minutes drive in the car. Stunning beach with a couple of small cafes and shops.


Girona airport is a 45 minutes drive and Barcelona airport is an hour and 30 minutes.


The town of Begur is a 5 minute drive away and the village of Sa-Riera a 5 minute walk. Being in the heart of Catalonia the villa has the best of both worlds, mountain and sea. There is a wealth of sport available including golf, cycling, quadbiking, snorkeling and even skiing in the Pyrenees in the winter months. It is surrounded by historical places of interest including the medieval towns of Pals and Peretallada and city of Girona is definitely worth a visit. There are many beautiful bays.

Further Details:

There is a good size supermarket in Sa Riera, together with some very good restaurants. In Begur you can find a number of banks, restaurants and supermarkets together with some very pleasant cafes in the square.
