About Ms Brenda Geoghegan

We are a professional couple with a small family who came to this area for a holiday in 2006 and fell in love with the charms of Begur and the Baix D'Emporada.

Ms Brenda Geoghegan purchased this villa in 2006

Why Ms Brenda Geoghegan chose Begur

We love this area for its unique Catalan feel and the authentic relaxed village that is Begur.It offers the real Catalonia-from the impromptu Catalan dancing in the square in Begur on Saturday nights to the best of Catalan food in the restaurants.The Catalans have made us feel welcome and at home .Begur is a family village which is safe and offers us a great experience year after year.

We chose our villa for is location which is so close to the heart of Begur but is exceedingly quiet with beautiful sea views.It has a large enclosed garden which is difficult to find in Begur and that garden has matured gracefully over the past few years with fig,lemon,apple ,cherry and pear trees not to mind the two olive trees.It is bliss having your lunch under the shade of these trees !

It is never unbearably hot in Begur as a cooling breeze comes in from the sea -another advantage of our villa .We have added pool heating and air conditioning as facilities to our villa and these have proved great additions to the overall comfort of Villa Rosa.

What makes this villa unique

Beautiful Seaviews as well as views over Begur village,Begur castle and the surrounding trees and hills.

Heated private pool with large garden.

Safe and quiet area-no passing traffic.

Close proximity to Begur-a stroll into the village.

Easy free parking .

Several large terraces for easy outdoor living.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a quick note now that we are back in the US to thank you.

We had a wonderful time in Begur, and Villa Rosa was perfect. You were right, it truly is a wonderful part of the world.

I think we followed most of your advice regarding places to visit, restaurants, and enjoyed them all.

Very disappointing. No pool heating as advertised and sorely in need of maintenance

  • 1 of 5

This villa is advertised as having a heated pool. The owner assured me it would be switched on and should be paid for locally. After our arrival she sent an email to say the heating had broken down and that an engineer would attempt repairs 2 days later. Even if repair was possible it would have taken several days to bring the water up to temperature. The criterion of a heated pool was absolutely essential for me in finding a villa. This was meant to be a very special family holiday to celebrate our daughter in law's 40 birthday and to bring together our family who were travelling from UK, France and Sweden. This included 2 young grandchildren who were so looking forward to a warm pool. No one met us at the villa and we let ourselves in using the key safe. The first thing that hit us was an overpowering musty smell throughout the house. There was a film of dust everywhere and some areas were quite dirty. The oven door was so badly cracked that it was unusable. Some of the crockery was disgustingly stained and basics like wine glasses were lacking. The travel cot supplied had vomit staining on the side. The pool furniture was left stacked and was filthy and a bench was splintered and unusable. We stayed one night and when I entered the lounge early the next morning I slipped and bumped my head due to what turned out to be about an inch of rainwater which had entered under the patio doors. I have taken photographs of most of these defects. We had no option but to move out to preserve most of a very special family holiday. We found a villa nearby with a functional heated pool and in wonderful condition. II recommend that you do not consider renting this villa

Great location , super clean, and loved Begur!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and great accommodation! All of our group of 10, ranging in age from 16 to 90, were very comfortable and truly enjoyed our time. The house is an easy walk to many great restaurants and shops in the center of Begur and a short drive (or bus ride) to several really nice beaches. If you're thinking of Costa Brava, this is an excellent place to stay! Only glitch was the very poor internet service for most of our stay. It did get fixed on our last day but not so helpful for us.

Fantastic stay, All our needs catered for!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing holiday had by all of my family, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the amazing nights dining out in the gem of Begur to the trips to the picturesque of Sa Riera.

The owner Brenda was just fantastic at informing us about activities and restaurants in the nearby area.She notified us about this fantastic walk from the villa to the nearby beach, Sa Riera, it was just a truly amazing experience walking from the house down to the beach.

The restaurants in Begur are truly fantastic, there is a restaurant for every group travelling, one of the owner's recommendations was a lovely Cocktail Bar/Restaurant called El Jardí De Can Marc, it was unbelievable the tapas we were served and the amazing cocktails, there were even non-alcoholic cocktails for the younger part of the group.

The villa itself was in pristine condition, our beds were made, the kitchen was spotless, dining area and living room were immaculate. The views from the balcony were truly outstanding.The pool was perfectly clean and safe for the younger children which was truly amazing, the pool heating was perfect, the air conditioning was also outstanding for keeping us cool on the hotter days. Parking was absolutely perfect for my family, easily accessible and plentiful.

To anybody wishing to stay in such a beautiful area like Begur, I would recommend booking this villa.

Begur is a pretty medieval village with cobbled streets and whitewashed houses draping the hillside below the ruins of a stone castle. Catalan bars and restaurants specializing in seafood surround the central pedestrianized square .Service is friendly and children are welcome and cherished by the Catalans.

Locally produced wines compliment the fare. The vineyards producing these wines will welcome you to wine tasting .

There are excellent supermarkets and specialist fishmonger and butcher shops. Freshly baked bread is available in many shops.

No sign of high rise here!!

Sandy bays and small coves with beach side bars and restaurants abound such as Pals, Llafranc and Aiguablava.

La Bisbal- the home of ceramic goods-is 15 mins away and is a must for pottery lovers. Girona is a beautiful city and is 45 mins by car. It will satisfy the culture-vulture and shopaholic alike. Barcelona is an easy one hour drive-this vibrant city needs no introduction! Francophiles--French border 1 ho

Other Activities: The area is renowned for terrific diving. Golf courses abound up to championship level. Safe swimming nearby. Fabulous beach and cliff top walking.

There is a top class yoga centre in Begur and also a day spa which offers a wonderful spa experience with massage therapy.

Golf: 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. We provide specific details of all courses within an easy drive of our villa in the house manual. Bring those golf clubs!

Ski: Ski resorts are a two hour drive away in the French Pyrenees and Andorra.
