About Sarah King

Hi, we (Steve and Sarah) live in the UK and own a very well established Plumbing and Heating business employing a number of engineers. We have also been involved in local property rentals for 15 years plus, providing property for the both the student and private sector.

Sarah King purchased this villa in 2004

Why Sarah King chose Baix Emporda

We had been looking for a number of years for a suitable place for a holiday home and were introduced to Begur by friends. It had absolutely everything we could possibly have asked for. Although the villa is only 5 minutes walk from the beach, even in the height of the season it is incredibly peaceful. The area has an abundance of beautiful beaches, excellent restaurants and, according to my husband, excellent golf courses. We are also very keen runners and cyclists and area is full of marked cycle and walking routes. It truly is a beautiful area and every time I have to leave it gets a little bit harder!

What makes this villa unique

The property itself sits high with stunning views across the valley. It is split over 3 floors giving 2 separate terrace areas and a large garden area if people are seeking a bit of space. The main terrace area and pool is a fantastic extension of the lounge for indoor/outdoor living. The villa is maintained to a very high standard and extremely well equipped, including underfloor heating inside the villa for autumn/winter/early spring holidays. An added bonus is that the swimming pool can also be heated, if and when required, and also has a small diving board which is great fun for the kids.

A great week in Casa de Reyes

  • 5 of 5

The villa is even better than it appears in the photographs. It was impeccably clean and very well equipped. The owners could not have been more helpful and efficient. We had a lovely week - swimming, riding, bungee jumping and a trip on a boat. The area offers so much and has some beautiful towns and villages - Begur, Pals and Peratellada (spelling?). We would highly recommend the villa and would very happily return there.

Lovely villa with excellent facilities

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely and spacious villa with all mod cons and a layout that meant that we as grandparents could retreat to the upstairs bedroom and large balcony when respite was required! The large pool was great for adults and children alike and the open plan feel to the living and pool area made life easy and also meant good use of the BBQ. Sa Riera has a great beach and a good selection of restaurants with some varied offers - I think that we tried them all during our stay! We also loved the coastal walks and the access to Begur and even grew to love the steps down and up from the beach!! This whole area is one that offers stunning coastline and access to lots of lovely seaside towns and beaches and we returned to the area after our first visit last year because of this.

Everyone associated with the villa provided us with excellent and friendly service, from Sarah the owner to Ms Canner who lives locally and looks after it day to day; and even the man who cleaned the pool and looked after the garden! This meant that any problems that arose, however minor, were dealt with immediately and this is such a bonus when staying for two weeks as we did. Thanks Sarah and company for a great holiday.

Stunning villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fully equipped, beautifully clean and spacious in a quiet but stunning location with a fabulous pool.

There are a number of gorgeous sandy beaches with the closest only 10 minutes walk down the hill, slightly longer on the way back!

There are some coastal paths for scenic walks.

A hire car is a must just for ease getting about and with super quiet roads the 45 minute journey from the airport is a breeze.

Begur has some lovely shops, nice restaurants and a great Cuban cocktail bar open late. The taxi company was helpful and spoke great English.

We drove to Barcelona for the day, be mindful of the tolls. It took about 2 hours to get there but it's a fantastic city and if you can get an overnight stay you'll see much more! There was all day parking for €10 which is a bargain.

Fabulous place and can't recommend it highly enough and would be back there in a shot!

Owner's Response: Always great to hear when visitors appreciate beautiful Canaluña as much as we do, including the Cuban cocktail bar in Begur! Great info and tips for visiting Barcelona..... thank you. Look forward to seeing you back again soon.

Fantastic spacious villa near the beach

  • 5 of 5

We have spent holidays in several villas in this part of the Costa Brava, but Sarah's villa was the pick of the bunch. The villa itself is really spacious, we were on holiday with 4 teenagers and there was plenty of space for everyone to socialise, and for us to escape to the lovely private terrace off the bedroom on the top floor. The villa is perfectly positioned for the lovely beach and restaurants at Sa Riera, in fact we hardly used our car apart from shopping trips. It's a short and very pretty walk around to the long sandy beach at Pals, where there are more restaurants and a golf course. We were lucky enough to be there for the "Fira D'Indians" festival, which involved a lot of dancing and mojitos in the streets of Begur. Overall a memorable holiday and we would love to return one day!

Fantastic villa in beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Villa was far better than our expectations. Spacious, perfectly clean and very well equipped. Plenty of space for family with 4 kids including teenagers and grandma. The top floor was just great for a bit of privacy for parents with a gorgeous view of Begur castle from the terrace a night. A real bonus to be able to walk to the beach and places to eat at Sa Riera. Steps are not suitable for everyone but do-able even for Grandma after a couple of brandys after dinner! Maria who looked after the house was really helpful. Hope to be back.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review. I'm glad the steps weren't too much Grandma, although I have to admit to giving the steps a miss and taking the road way myself at times! We hope to see you again in the future.

Fantastic family holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week in this beautiful part of Spain as two families with young children. The villa has a lovely open plan living space which leads straight out to the pool (easy for checking on wandering little ones). There is plenty of shade outside which is essential in the heat. The villa was very clean, comfortable and well equipped, and the owners very helpful and friendly when we emailed them to ask a few questions.

We can't wait to come back!
