Walking Holidays: We are very keen walkers and spend a great deal of our time at Begur walking the coastal paths or travelling inland to the mountains to hike in the beautiful countryside. Walking routes are well waymarked but we can give you any advice or information that you may need to plan a walking holiday. We would be quite happy to suggest walks/routes of varying difficulty in the local area.The coastal path is delightful .It is possible to walk to Tamariu beach from our house.It takes about 35 minutes.
The Costa Brava has recently won an award for The Best Emerging Golf Destination Worldwide by IAGTO. Why? Because the Costa Brava now hosts some of the finest golf courses in Europe. In the last decade the Costa Brava has become host to nine excellent golf courses, ranging from Par 3 courses up to championship level, all within a 45 minute drive of our villa. What's more, the very reasonable green fee rates and the ready availability of tee times make the Costa Brava a real rising star in the world of golf. With a year round playing season and very comfortable weather conditions on any given date the Costa Brava is an excellent choice for a golfing holiday. Remember that May/June/September/October are great months for golfers. The courses are not crowded and the weather is usually lovely but not too hot.. so .. Bring those golf clubs! If you want to bring out a group, we can arrange green fees ,give you the information about all the courses and even arrange transport and in-house catering.Just let us know!
Small coves and sandy bays abound in this area such as Sa Tuna, Fornells and Aiguablava. All within 10-15min drive. There is ahuge sandy beach at Playa De Pals-you can walk for miles! Good windsurfing here too. Scuba diving and snorkeling are excellent! Our favourite beaches are Aigua Blava,Tamariu and Callella de Palafrugell. All have excellent restaurants.
Sight - Seeing: As we know the whole area of the Costa Brava very well ,we are in a good position to advise you on the numerous site seeing trips that you might want to take. Begur is in an excellent position whether you want to visit a water park with your children , take a trip in a glass bottomed boat to the Medes Islands or explore the local historic medieval towns. This is also Dalí country and an excursion to Port Ligat ,Figueres or Castle Gala Dalí is a memorable experience. Girona is also only a 40 minute drive and is a wonderful city, quite small and easy to negotiate but full of interesting history and some excellent restaurants. There are some fascinating coastal towns such as Llfranc and Callela de Palafrugel which have very attractive beaches, you tell us your interests and we would be happy to give you ideas . We love this area and although we don't want it to become too well known as it is very unspoilt without an English pub in sight , we are happy to share it
Fine Dining: Catalan cuisine and wine is justly famous .There are numerous restaurants to satisfy the most demanding of foodies. Please ask us for some ideas!

4.8 based on 10 holidaymaker reviews
Casa de la Luna - we all loved staying here - the villa is beautiful and on a morning having breakfast on the balcony is very special. The area that it is in is great with amazing places to visit and lots of great restaurants.

Five stars? We would give it 10!
When we arrived at Casa de la Luna, we knew the villa would be truly tested. We were a family of 10, including four active teenagers plus an 8-year-old intent on keeping up with her bigger cousins. The house proved its mettle, handling with grace the task of keeping us comfortable and safe. Being able to install the teenagers in their own space in the lower level bedrooms with their own showers circumvented a lot of stress. When we all gathered in the airy bright living areas, no one felt cramped. There was space to include everyone in family games and chatter. All the equipment was modern and worked well. We usually had breakfast in the villa on the front balcony, along with the occasional lunch or dinner. There were too many tempting restaurants to ignore. And besides, we were on holiday! The house was spotless and we really appreciated the amiable team of Robert and Kerry coming in after the first week to change linens and restore the place to its original state (I can’t say it stayed that way but we did try to keep on top of the kids’ constant mess). The pool was well used by swimmers, the deck enjoyed by loungers sipping sangria. Purpose of this trip was to introduce the grandchildren to Europe by spending two weeks in Barcelona and two in Begur. A trove of Catalonia’s historic sites is within easy driving district of Casa de la Luna. Of course we spent time on various beaches and in the pool, but those are readily available to us in Canada. What Canada lacks and Catalonia provided are places like Monserrat, Tossa la Mer, Sant Pere de Rohde – the list seems endless. The most astonishing and interesting site was Empuries; the most picturesque historic town, Pals. Both ‘musts’ are just a short drive from Begur. Prue’s constant attention to our needs from our first inquiry to the end of our trip was reassuringly helpful and professional. Casa de la Luna will remain a favourite memory as our family reminisces about this trip at future family gatherings. We will certainly be recommending it to friends, and hope to return some day ourselves.
Excellent villa in a prime spot
We have just come back from our stay at this stunning villa for one week with my family. The villa was everything we had hoped for and even exceeded our expectations and was large enough for everyone to enjoy without us being on top of each other. We loved having breakfast and dinner every day on the large terrace enjoying the views over the local area, valley and coast in the distance. The pictures don't even quite do it justice! The villa is in a stunning location, very rural and very Spanish yet very close to everything such as lovely beaches, villages, Begur. We enjoyed Visiting Pals, Begur and all the beaches in the area and the stunning coastline and all the sightseeing which the area had to offer. We also enjoyed swinming and sunbathing and relaxing by the pool most days and the pool was in fact larger than we had expected and a perfect size. Thank you Prue for such a lovely time at your amazing villa!! We shall be highly recommending and praising your villa to friends, family and colleagues.
Really lovely villa
Casa de la Luna was a perfect place to stay for our week in Spain. We have three kids 9, 11 and 12. They loved the pool and we loved the relaxing veranda with amazing views. Everything you need is in the villa.
Bob and Kerry who manage the property in Spain are very attentive, when we needed their assistance they were round immediately.
The welcome pack milk, water and a cold beer was much appreciated after our trip from Barcelona.
Begur town and surrounding beaches are wonderful.
We went to this villa on recommendation from a friend of ours and I would have no hesitation in recommending it.
Perfect villa for our week in Costa Brava!
This villa was perfect....better than the pictures. It was very clean and well maintained. Prue was very helpful and easy to work with. We loved dinners on the porch looking at the sea and mountains in the distance. Only drawback was that we had to drive to the beach, but we didn't mind as it gave us opportunity to explore different beaches. Also enjoyed the town of Begur very much. We would stay here again!
Well specified property in a lovely area of Spain
Casa de la Luna worked really well for our family of 9 adults and the location was ideal for visiting the attractions of the surrounding area.
The house was airy and spacious with lovely views from the balcony towards the sea.The gardens and pool area were very private and although the pool was a little on the small side, we still had lots of fun in it.The only reason we haven't awarded 5 stars is that the front drive is very steep and our hire car had difficulty in making it up to the top! However there is plenty of parking on the quiet street outside of the house.
Highlights of the holiday included visits to Cadaques, the beach at Aiguablava (early morning before the crowds arrived!) and Castell Gala Dali, but there were many other places that we would have liked to have visited but ran out of time!
All the three restaurants we ate in were good as recommended by the really helpful owners – Sa Rascassa, Rostei and Pati Blau,
We also enjoyed lovely weather and the several barbecues we had on the balcony.
The helpful information given to us by the owners really added to the overall enjoyment of our holiday and everyone agreed that we had a wonderful 60th birthday celebration.
We hope to visit the area again sometime as it really was a beautiful part of the country.
