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 Begur

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

Further Details:

Begur is a very charming old town with a castle at its crown. There is a central square with narrow streets leading off, full of interesting shops and offering a superb choice of restaurants mostly with outdoor terraces. In the high season local artists display their work in the square and there is traditional spanish dancing and other entertainment. The atmosphere is very spanish and there are no souvenir shops or 'English bars' There are a couple of good discos. Banks are in abundance and most restaurants and shops accept credit cards. Leisure activities can include tennis, horse riding, diving, sailing, windsurfing, canoing, cycling, water park, zoo. The beaches are clean and have restaurants; some also have shops. Good supermarkets in the town and surrounds.

About the area ~ this is the unspoilt Costa Brava or Catalunya which is free from large Tour Operated holidays and where most of the properties are owned by Barcelonians. It is rarely overcrowded and has retained real Spanish charm without a souvenir shop in sight! This is an area you will want to return to again and again.... Every day there will be a different place of interest to visit, be it a cultural pursuit or another sundrenched sandy cove with clear water to while away the day. All the coastal resorts here have waterfront restuarants, cafes and shops and it is a real pleasure to wander the little streets around the front and enjoy the spectacular scenery that this rugged coastline offers. Development here is mainly villas as the terrain does not allow for large apartment blocks and the coastline remains intact with some wonderful coastal path walks.

The nearest beach at Sa Riera is just a 5-10 minute drive and here you will find the prettiest sandy bay with waterfront restaurants, shops and cafes. Also within 10-15 minutes are the excellent beaches and coastal villages of Aiguablava, Sa Riera, Calella de Palafrugell, Llafranc and Tamariu.
