Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a very belated "thank you" for renting your home to us in late July and early August. We had an absolutely amazing stay at your beautiful, perfectly appointed home. I bet you can't wait to get back to Spain in September. The renovation of the property, what a feat, it is nothing short of spectacular.



We certainly understand how you both have decided to create homes in the Begur area. A dream come true.



I'm attaching a few of our pictures to this email. Walks along the coast and into town for groceries, meals cooked in, evenings playing cards by the pool, beautiful views all day long...Fabulous.



Thanks again.

When can we come again!?

  • 5 of 5

We wanted to spend the summer in Spain in a location that was relaxing and beautiful but also offered plenty to do for a family with two young boys. We could not have chosen a better spot than Begur or a better home than La Casa del Repos. The house is lovely -- a stunning view of the Mediterranean, perfect pool, gorgeous outdoor space and an easy-to-use kitchen. The covered outdoor space allowed us to eat every meal outside and to read or play games with the kids in the fresh air. Even in the rain, the covered space is accessible. The pool was refreshing and fun and the yard offered space for the kids to run around and for the adults to find shade and comfy chairs at any time of day. The four bedrooms made it easy for everyone to have his own space while welcoming guests as well.

The location is ideal. Early morning walks to Sa Tuna (beach) and along the coast were stunning and the path to Begur (town) was easy and pleasant -- the kids loved walking into town for chocolate croissants and to purchase fresh bread and fruit for the day. There are at least five other beaches, all with lovely hiking paths, kayaking, etc. within easy 20 minute drives AND a half dozen medieval villages, all with lovely sights and top notch restaurants are within a half hour. We loved many of our day trips as well -- Girona, Cadaques, snorkeling from Estarit are all easily done. Our children became big Salvador Dali fans, and his museum and two homes are easily reached.

The owner, Ali, was incredibly helpful and her local team is great. Casa Care responded quickly to anything that wasn't working, the wonderful gardener Ryan offered us fresh cuttings and made our surroundings beautiful. The Casa Care owner's daughter babysat for us so that we could take advantage of Begur's first rate restaurants in the evenings.

Ali provided tons of great suggestions for what to do and the home has several guidebooks that were more helpful than anything I had found prior to our trip. We felt like we really saw the best of Spain and the Costa Brava and fell right into the casual lifestyle of Spain (touring in the mornings...long lunches with Sangria...back to the pool in the afternoon!) The house is 90 minutes from Barcelona -- it would be an easy vacation to spend a few days in that world class city and then to come to Costa Brava to relax and enjoy the natural beauty and relaxation of Spain!

Beautiful Begur

  • 5 of 5

Just a quick note to thank you very much for letting us stay at your Casa Del Repos! We travelled with young children, young adults and (slightly) older adults and found the accommodation and local area and attractions to be beautiful and relaxing in all respects. The pool is a great size for all ages, the house is beautifully designed and decorated and the views down to Sa Tuna are wonderful day and night. Thanks again!

A 10 minute walk from La Casa Del Repos is the rugged Costa Brava coastline, with its many hidden sandy coves including the beautiful fishing village of Sa Tuna.
