About Sheila and Adrian Yelland

I have been involved with property for as long as I can remember and when we first visited Begur in we thought it a wonderful region and decided to buy a holiday home, Casa Alfora.

We rented it out through a local agent the first year (2001). After that I decided to rent it out myself and since then we have built two more houses and purchased another in Begur all of which are on this site. Gradually I built up a business and we now have our own website featuring property in Spain, Italy, Greece and Portugal.

Poros Island, Greece is a favourite destination of ours where we have a house overlooking the harbour and on the mainland, both with amazing views and both of which are featured on this website.

Now we have added our lovely Padstow cottage to this site. We hope you like it!

Why Sheila and Adrian Yelland chose Baix Emporda

My brother and I bought this villa on our first visit to Begur which we found to be the most charming place with wonderful surrounding countryside, beaches and medieval towns and spent a marvellous holiday here with friends, renting a villa near to Sa Riera beach. We thought this would make a superb holiday home as it is in a peaceful location with direct sea views and yet only 5mins by car to Begur and in the other direction to the beach and fishing village of Sa Riera.

In 2008 we had the house fully refurbished which included forfeiting one of the bedrooms to make a new larger kitchen, renewal of the bathrooms and installation of an additional shower room and retiling and decorating throughout. This has proved very worthwhile and has transformed this family holiday home.

What makes this villa unique

Casa Alfora is in a very good location being so close to the beach and the medieval town of Begur, with many other coastal villages to visit within 5-15 minutes drive. We love going into Begur and soaking up the atmosphere in the evenings and visiting the bustling weekly market. There is always something interesting going on in the season and out of season the peacefulness is an equally appealing contrast.

Casa Alfora has a full width covered terrace and even if it is pouring with rain, which it was one evening, we all sat under the terrace, warm and dry with the barbecue blazing away and it felt very nice!

The large swimming pool is an obvious attraction, especially the diving board which kids just love.

Guestbook comments from the manager

'Thank you so much for arranging the Alfora property last week at one hour's notice. It was perfect, and the view from there is great. All 6 + 3 toddlers and 1 baby had a great time. Thanks again'. S. Austwick

'The house was in such a wonderful setting for outdoor living. The pool was brilliant, we really appreciated it in the heat' - J. Seaman

"We really enjoyed our stay in Casa Alfora in Begur and would recommend it for sure. Couple of our friends already are interested and might come to stay there in future. It was wonderful that all building was on the same level as we had 5 boys and didn`t need to worry about the steps although they found the backyard fascinating to climb and discover. I would also recommend the restaurant Convent - excellent food, service, atmosphere and nicely close to the villa. Thank you very much for wonderful holiday. Best regards". E.Moorlat
