Overview

About the property

This comfortable and spacious apartment is close to all the shops and restaurants in the village. From the living area and terraces you will enjoy beautiful mountain views and amazing sunsets. The rooftop swimming pool can be accessed by lift and boasts several large terraces with views over the village and its medieval castle.

There are 3 bedrooms - one double with exit to a small terrace with a table and 2 chairs, one single with a pull-out bed and one with adult-sized bunk beds. One bathroom with bath & shower, wall heater and hair dryer. The apartment is provided with a TV, wifi internet, DVD player, electric heating, dishwasher, washing machine, microwave oven, toaster, coffee machine, iron and a fan in every room.

Begur enjoys a shoreline of unparalleled beauty. Its cliffs and pines, the crystal waters of its hidden coves and its abrupt coastline, make this area the most characteristic of the Costa Brava. Begur has eight coves and beaches of different characters and natural beauty.

The most beautiful coves and beaches of the Costa Brava such as Aiguablava, Sa Riera, Calella, Tamariu and Pals are just a short drive away. During the summer season a bus service operates between Begur and some of its beaches. There are also regular buses to/from Girona and Barcelona.

Nearby you will find a number of charming medieval villages such as Pals, Peratallada, Torroella de Montgrí and Palau-Sator. Most of the region's best golf courses are readily accessible within a 25 km radius.

The small town of Figueres near the border with France is remarkable as the birthplace of Salvador Dali and is home to the Dali Museum. Whether you are passionate about surreal art or just have a passing interest in Dali, this is worth a visit. Even the kids will appreciate the bizarre but highly accessible work of the Spanish artist.

There is an amazing array of water sports that can be practiced in this region. Large bays with waves and wind for windsurfing and yachting. Miles and miles of coastline with coves, cliffs, long beaches and fully-equipped harbours for enjoying all the pleasure of sailing. Marine reserves where you can immerse yourself in the blue, mirrors of water to glide over, and a wild, rugged coastline to discover.

And some interesting background info:

Located in the heart of Empordà, the unspoiled northern part of the Costa Brava, Begur is a town steeped in history. Beneath the shelter of its medieval castle herdsmen, fishermen, bottle cork manufacturers and emigrants returning from the Americas have contributed to the pages of the town’s history. Being a small town with deep rooted customs, the weekly market (Wednesdays) forms an important part of the town’s commercial life.

Our regional cuisine is justly renowned and the benevolent climate ensures many warm, sunny days from spring through to autumn.

By Law 5/2012 on tax, financial and administrative matters, the Catalan Parliament has created the tourist tax for stays in tourist establishments which is now 0.99 € per night per person over 16 years old (maximum 7 days) and is due to be paid on arrival.

The new law also asks for all visitors to be registered for which I will need your passport details.

In the summer season (July and August) there are four daily direct return connections from Barcelona International Airport (BCN) to Begur with public transport (bus) departing from BCN - Terminal 1 and Terminal 2. During the low season (as from September) there are 2 daily direct return connections on weekdays and one during the weekends. The ride lasts approx. 3 hours and 20 minutes (subject to traffic). The adult single fare is 21.45 €uro (2015). These are real direct services without any need for transfers.

Travelling by car from Barcelona you take the A7 motorway in the direction of Girona/France. You take the exit 9 (Sortida 9) and the direction San Feliu de Guixols, Playa d'Aro, Palamos, Palafrugell and Begur. Travelling by car from France you take the A7 motorway direction Girona/Barcelona. You leave the motorway at exit 4 (Sortida 4). You take the N-II approx. 1 Km in the direction back towards France and drive off the N-II in the direction Verges/La Bisbal. In Verges you turn left at a roundabout towards Torroella de Montgri, Pals and Begur.

A lovely property

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely property in a central location in Begur. The apartment was well equipped and very comfortable. The pool area was a welcome retreat after a day of walking many of the trails linking picturesque coastal villages. We certainly hope to return soon.

An attractive apartment in centre of Begur

  • 5 of 5

A beautifully furnished apartment, views from the pool have to be seen to be believed and despite being shared with other apartments the pool was never over crowded. The apartment is not cheap but if you are looking for a Begur stay this will comfortably accommodate a family of five and is lovely to return to after a day on the beach!

El apartamento impecable, muy bien equipado y situado.

  • 5 of 5

El apartamento estaba impecable, muy bien equipado. Mucha luz y buena vista.

La ubicación muy bien, en pleno centro de Begur. Esto también hace que sea algo ruidoso en algun momento

ya que Begur está muy concurrido en pleno mes de Agosto.

La propietaria, Fernie, muy amable a la entrada y a la salida.

Located in the heart of Empordà, the town of Begur and its beaches are one of the most wonderful spots on the Costa Brava. The town boundary takes in the impressive hills of the Begur Massif and an extensive coastline washed by the Mediterranean sea. Begur old town, home to numerous monuments left as legacies of significant moments in the town's history, together with its eight coves and small beaches make it and its peerless natural surroundings an unbeatable place to visit.
