About Diane Hedley

My husband and I fell in love with Begur, the beautiful beaches, quaint towns and villages, rolling countryside and friendly people and after many wonderful holidays in the area, we decided to buy a home here in 2005.

Standing on the site in Es Valls and looking down the tranquil pine valley to the Meditteranean Sea and across the valley to Begur Castle, listening to birdsong and watching the sun rise over the sea, no where else would do, and we bought our beautiful new home when it was completed in June 2006.

Some of our happiest days have been spent together and with friends and family in Casa Diana from where we have experienced the beauty of the Costa Brava and the endless delights that this magical area has to offer.

We hope our guests share the joy of our Spanish home.

Diane Hedley purchased this villa in 2006

Guestbook comments from the owner

'All had a fabulous time the villa suited our needs perfectly and we wished we were staying 3 weeks.'

'Well above the average standards of rented holiday accommodation.Very nicely equipped with good utensils and pretty matching crockery etc.The pool and garden area very well furnished. The Spanish agency was very efficient, friendly and helpful. All the ingredients for a fabulous stay'.

'I just wanted to say a big thank you and how much we enjoyed staying at your lovely villa. The bedrooms and bathrooms were terrific, our 2 little ones loved the pool(as did we), and the terrace was perfect for lazy lunches and some late night BBQs-if the villa is available in the future we would love to come back'

'Having stayed at numerous villas over the last 5 years through 'Owners Direct' or 'holiday rentals' I can honestly say Casa Diana was the best appointed and maintainedthat we have stayed in-it is a really lovely home so thank you very much'.

Stunning house, stunning views, stunning Begur

  • 5 of 5

Casa Diana is the perfect place to take a holiday. The villa is well equipped with everything you need. Its got an amazing view, lovely pool and a garage and drive which all makes your holiday so easy. We travelled with two young children and found it easy and comfortable. It even has children's TV channels which is great! Begur is a very pretty town with great restaurants and cafes and lovely for an evening walk. Tt is also surrounded by different beaches - we went to a different one every day and all were lovely with great restaurants on the beaches. We also went for a day trip to the Dali museum which was great. Can't recommend it enough and hope to return one day

Beautiful area. Wonderful coastal walks, views and quaint medieval villages to visit

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable, relaxing stay at Casa Diana. The villa is well situated with lots of different beaches to explore and a short car ride to Bégur for visiting restaurants, shops and market. Its a healthy walk down to Sa Riera beach (462 steps) but worth it for an early morning swim. The view of the sea is lovely and the pool small but clean and refreshing. Sadly the terrace is a little overlooked but as long as the neighbours arent too noisy, the area is very quiet. Sadly no airconditioning so needs fans in the bedrooms!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to review your stay in Casa Diana. It is greatly appreciated. There are room fans available from the Agent if required and I will add this to my pre visit information for the convenience of future guests. Most of the terrace areas around the villa are completely private but I appreciate one neighbouring villa (if occupied) could have a limited view of part of one terrace. I am delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Casa Diana and hope you will return to once again enjoy this beautiful area . Thank you.

Beautiful very well maintained villa with fantastic views and very well equipped.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is very clean and very well equipped. It is a beautiful location overlooking the medertarnian sea and spoilt for choice for fantastic coves, beaches & restaurants. Begur is a five minute drive or fifteen minute walk to this very quaint town with lovely shops, restaurants and castle.

Will definitely return to this villa and would recommend it for a tranquil holiday.

A lovely villa set in pretty gardens with stunning views.

  • 5 of 5

Light, airy villa with plenty of space for a family. Good size pool and gardens which felt quite private. The view is breath-taking and it is brilliantly situated near the attractive town of Begur, with numerous stunning coves within a short distance. A brilliant place for a family holiday in a beautiful and relatively unspoilt area.
