Beautiful And Well Appointed Villa With Private Pool And Sea Views



Updated: 07-May-2016
Villa in Begur Sa Riera, Girona, Costa Brava, Spain - Peaceful Location In A Very Quiet Area And Only 5 Minutes Walk To The Beach

This is a very comfortable and well equipped villa all on one level where you can enjoy a relaxed holiday. Nearby activities include golf( several excellent courses within a 10 minute drive), diving, sailing, water sports, tennis, horse riding, walks, go-karting and cycling. Sa Riera boasts a large unspoilt glorious golden sand beach, where you can enjoy the waterfront restaurants, bars and cafes. There are also a few shops and a twice weekly small market in the season.

The cobbled streets add to the character of the town and offer a really excellent choice of Catalan restaurants which nearly all have al fresco eating in the summer months. In addition there are several tapas bars, individual and exquisite clothes, antique and specialist food shops, cafes and late night cellar bars. There are excellent supermarkets, specialist fishmonger, butchers shops and freshly baked baguettes in many of the bakeries.

About the Owner

I live in the south of England with my wife Karen. We have five children, who are now thankfully all grown up and now living independently. I hope! I have my own small consultancy business and until recently my wife worked as an Operations Director in the Care Home industry. We bought our house in Hampshire 15 years ago with my wife's sister Janet, as it provided a perfect location for us all to enjoy the benefits of living as an extended family and being able to care jointly for my elderly in laws whilst they were alive. We all used to holiday together, until we eventually bought our holiday home.

We loved the views from the villa and being able to walk to the beach and village was a real bonus J. Strang

We loved the house we stayed at. If the owner was ever thinking of selling, we would appreciate being contacted. Thank you for a great vacation! Z. Cornelius-Knudsen July 2008

From the Owner

We used to holiday on the Costa Brava for many years, and always rented properties in the Begur area of Catalonia. Often as a party of 10, being the extended family mentioned above, we would try and rent villas with pools and also as close to the sea as possible. The children loved the beaches but also enjoyed having a swimming pool when it became too hot to stay on the beach all day. We also often used to drive to this part of Spain as cheap airlines never seemed quite so cheap when you were paying for 10. This part of the Costa Brava is very green with a stunning coastline and has many small unspoilt bays and villages. Ultimately, it seemed logical to try and buy a holiday home in the location that we most loved and spent many very enjoyable and happy holidays.

This is the unspoiled Costa Brava or Catalonia which has escaped invasion by Tour Operated holiday groups and where most of the properties are owned by Barcelonians. With an abundance of delightful coastal towns and idyllic sandy coves, this region is rarely overcrowded and has retained real Spanish charm.

Every day you can find a new diversion, be it a cultural pursuit, playing tennis, golf, snorkelling, sailing, or a lazy day at one of the beautiful sun drenched sandy coves.


There are 3 airports nearby served by Ryanair, Easyjet and during the summer charter airlines: Girona 45 mins approx, Barcelona 1.5 hours approx, Perpignan 1.25 hours approx. A car is recommended to enjoy the area fully. Reasonably priced car hire is available from the airports.

We recommend Marius who delivers your car and meets you at either Girona or Barcelona airports. Please contact for website addresses. Driving time from Calais is approx 12 hours.


Within a 20 minute drive and easy reach of the Villa are several unspoilt fishing villages and beaches - Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Tamariu, Llafranc, Calella; beautiful medieval villages and towns - Pals, Peratallada. Begur is also only 5 mins drive away and has characterful shops, cafes, restaurants.

Salvador Dali's castle which he gifted to his wife Gala, at Pubol (20 mins Begur) and his amazing museum at Figueres 40 mins Begur. La Bisbal (20 mins Begur) has numerous ceramic shops.

Further Details:

Girona is a wonderful city to visit. The River Onyar, lined by buildings in red and ochre, divides the old city from the new A walk up the lively riverside Rambla takes you towards the city`s spiritual core and major landmark, the magnificent cathedral. Its 1680 baroque conceals a graceful Romanesque cloister and what is said to be the widest nave in Christendom. Girona is commonly known as mini-Barcelona, with its own charming Ramblas and interesting shops and pavement restaurants. There is a large market here every Saturday.

Barcelona, if you crave city life, is approximately one hour by train from Flaca, where you can leave your car (20mins from Begur) and get right into the centre.

Barcelona is a confident, progressive city and the classic tourist images of Spain seem firmly out of place in Barcelona's bustling central boulevards and stylish modern streets. And style is what brings many visitors here, attracted by enthusiastic newspaper and magazine articles which make much of the outrageous architecture, user-friendly city design, agreeable climate and frenetic nightlife. Barcelona has continued to blossom from provincial city to putative European capital. When the Olympic Games had finished, the city was left with an entirely new harbour development containing the futuristic Olympic Village.

From the Owner

We were very lucky to find and eventually buy Casa Muller, which was owned by Barcelonians. It had never been used as a holiday let, and was sold with all their furniture and fittings. This is why even to day it is quite unusual in its style and quality of furnishings. The house is literally 5 minutes walk down through the terraced garden to the beach. However the property is in a quiet location and has uninterrupted views over the sea. Whilst you will need a car to fully appreciate and enjoy the area, there are numerous places of interest and also many other beaches and bays close by. The area also boasts 3 excellent golf courses within 20 minutes. There is a wide choice of Restaurants in the medieval village of Begur, and many more in the local towns and on the coast.
