About the Owner

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.

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'.

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.

The location is perfect: close to many beaches (by car) and close to Begur - a town with a lot of nice little Restaurants, Shops, Markets, Music, etc...

Lovely villa close to begur

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed a week at the villa in july. Weather lovely, which made having the pool fantastic for lazing by on hot afternoons, a car is pretty much essential to get around, but drove up and parked at car park on the outskirts of begur (at the office where you get the keys) and just walked into begur. Max 10 minutes. Begur is beguiling .....lots of character, very pretty, lovely restaurants & cafes, no tourist rubbish, and such a lovely place to sit and people watch in the evening. Good market on a wednesday. Would definitely recommend. Beaches nearby are lovely ..... Sa tuna is picture postcard pretty. Cami di ronda is lovely coastal walk, nearby and you can do as much or as little as you want. Views from villa stunning. Villa very comfortable & well equipped. Owner very helpful with directions, sending local info. Would return, definitely! & very jealous of whoever is there now !

Local supermarket is good, markets nearby better for fresh fruit & veg, & good little fish shop in begur. Easy to shop local for all you need. A dip in the pool at night also lovely .....& there are lights! Loved it.

A beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

This villa was perfect for me and my family. It has a lovely view down the valley to the sea, and faces the rising sun! The pool is excellent. The house is equipped with everything you need, plus comfortable beds, couches and English TV channels. It is within easy reach of several beaches plus Begur town, which is a lovely old town to wander around with some lovely restaurants. The villa is about 50 mins drive from Girona. The villa is well maintained and very clean, and has shutters on every window to keep it cool for night-time. Close to medieval village of Pals, plus l'Estartit for boat trips and Palafrugell for more excellent beaches. I highly recommend it.

Summer Holiday Casa Diana

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a 2 week holiday in this delightful property as a family of 2 adults and 2 teenagers. The property is well maintained, very comfortable and well equipped. The views are beautiful and the villa is in a quite location in which we felt very comfortable and safe. The owner is helpful and communicates well. We were also very impressed with the services provided by the key holder/management company in Spain. We would be very happy to recommend this property to family and friends.
