Overview

About the property

5 bedrooms.Spacious living areas.Nr Begur and Sa Riera beach.Peaceful location

Casa Alfora is in a particularly peaceful setting with direct sea views, large private pool, aircon and WIFI. In a superb location, 5mins by car or 20mins walk takes you to the historic castle town of BEGUR where you will find a fantastic choice of restaurants, tapas bars, cafes and a few late night cellar bars making Begur attractive for all ages. A relaxing time can be spent exploring the cobbled streets which are littered with beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants and the weekly market is always fun with clothes, food and general items for sale. If you walk up to the castle at the head of the town you can enjoy amazing views and there are many interesting walks from Begur details of which can be found at the local tourist office. No traffic passes through the centre of the village which makes the old square an enchanting place to sit and watch the world go by whilst sitting at one of the outside cafes or bars. In the high season there is much activity in both the squares in Begur with local artists` work on display, activities for children and live music with dancing, both traditional and modern.

Just 2km away is the charming old fishing village of Sa Riera with its golden sand beach and waterfront restaurants. There are many coastal resorts nearby including Tamariu, Aiguablava, Calella de Palafrugell and Llafranc, each with sandy coves and waterfront activities. Also of great interest is the medieval walled town of Pals(15mins) and Peratallada(20mins). Since this region was the home to Salvador Dali, you can visit his castle at Pubol (20mins), his museum at Figueres (45mins) and his summer house (absolutely fascinating) at Port Lligat((1hr). These are approximate drive times.

Casa Alfora has undergone a facelift for 2012 with many new furnishings and complete redecoration.

Accommodation:

Casa Alfora offers great holiday accommodation on one level. On approach there are two garages at road level and you have use of one of these. There are two gates to the steps which lead up to the garden and house level with the front door at the side of the house. A welcoming hall leads into the large open plan living area with full width glass doors looking to the pool, garden and sea. The living area has sofas and occasional furniture and for your entertainment there is a flat screen sat TV, DVD player and sound system with ipod dock. The large wood burning stove is fantastic for winter lets. Airconditioning and a ceiling fan are there to cool you down in the hot summer months. The far end of the living area has a dining table and ten chairs with an additional airconditioning unit and ceiling fan. The glass doors give excellent look out to the full width covered terrace and the garden and pool beyond.

Leading from the dining area is a spacious open plan kitchen fully fitted with granite worktops and ample storage and the central island makes a good meeting point for a pre-dinner drink! Facilities include dishwasher, fridge/freezer, coffee maker, oven, hob and microwave. The window view from the kitchen is of the sea and garden.

Leading off the main living area at the kitchen end is a hallway to a large double bedroom, bathroom with bath, shower, basin, wc and washing machine. Bunk bedroom and shower room. At the living room end of the house is a twin bedroom with sea views and a hallway leading to two further bedrooms (twin and a double), a bathroom with bath, basin wc and shower and a separate additional cloakroom. This separates the accommodation up making it a good choice of villa for two families.

The outside area provides many places to explore and relax in. The full width covered terrace leading off the living room provides a wonderful outside living area with views of the pool, countryside and sea. Seating and dining for ten people plus a large built in bbq with easy access from the kitchen and living area completes the scene.

Leading from the front covered terrace is the swimming pool approximately 10m x 5m with a diving board, surrounded by lawn and two sun terraces with sunbeds and garden furniture. A wonderful chill out zone.The pool is easily seen from the indoor living area.

The rear terrace has table tennis and is a great games area within its own separate space.

About Sheila Yelland

Having been involved in property rentals in the UK since 1990 it seemed a natural progression to do this in Spain where we have bought/ built four villas since 2001 and have now sold one of those villas.

I started up a company in 2001 called Spanish Haven and advertised our villas as well as villas belonging to other owners, friends and family in the Begur region. We then expanded our areas to include Greece, Portugal, Italy and Mallorca and changed the name of the company to Haven On Earth. After many successful years with our small family business we sustain a very good reputation for the personal service we provide.

Sheila Yelland purchased this villa in 2001

Why Sheila Yelland chose Begur

Begur is such a charming town and the beaches are glorious; sandy and with waterfront restaurants and we had such a good holiday the first time we went to Begur that we decided we wanted to have a holiday home here. Casa Alfora appealed to us greatly because of the sea views, the large swimming pool and its proximity to Begur and the beaches. We have since upgraded the interior of Casa Alfora and each year make new improvements to the house and garden. This year we provided a tennis table which has been a great success with renters.

What makes this villa unique

The full width covered terrace was a great attraction. One time there it was warm but pouring with rain and a crowd of us sat on the covered terrace eating and drinking, having a great time whilst watching the rain pour down and keeping warm and dry at the same time! We have also enjoyed winter time with the large wood-burning stove which we installed and of course the wonderful sea and country views were a big draw!

Guestbook comments from the manager

“Just arrived back from our trip to Begur – we loved it! The house was in such a wonderful setting for outdoor living. The pool was brilliant, we really appreciated it in the heat. Thank you very much for helping us organise our holiday!”

This is the unspoilt Costa Brava or Catalonia which has escaped invasion by Tour Operated holiday groups and where most of the properties are owned by Barcelonians. With an abundance of delightful coastal towns and idyllic sandy coves, this region is rarely overcrowded and has retained real Spanish charm. This is an area you will want to return to again and again.Every day you can find a new diversion, be it a cultural pursuit, taking the kids to a water park, playing tennis, snorkelling, sailing, or a lazy day at one of the beautiful sun drenched sandy coves with clear water and beach front restaurants. The coastal resorts all have a choice of waterfront restaurants, cafes and shops and it is a real pleasure to wander the little streets around the harbour fronts and enjoy the spectacular scenery of this rugged coastline. Development here has slowed right down and you will come across villas unexpectedly tucked away. No large apartment development is possible due to the rugged terrain.

Other Activities: WATERPARK, MUSEUMS, ART GALLERIES, SHOPS, CAFES, BARS, RESTAURANTS, GOKARTING,

Ski: You can be on the slopes at La Molina in approximately 3 hours drive time from Begur with Andorra a little further away. Very good skiing for all levels, uncrowded and less expensive than France or Switzerland.
