Overview

About the property

Villa in Begur, Costa Brava - Close To Beaches, 5 Minutes Walk To Restaurants, Cafes, Bars & Shops

Holiday Villa Begur is our home but since we liveaway from Spain we can't always enjoy it, so we offer it for short-term holiday rental for the periods we are not there. We chose it because it met our requirement for a spacious and modern vacation house within less than five minutes walking distance from the central plaza of the stunning medieval village of Begur and enjoying at the same time the stunning views of the village and of the Mediterranean sea. It was built to a high standard in 2005, with everything you would expect from a luxury modern holiday home. Having walking access to the town completely changes how you enjoy Begur. You don't have to jump in the car to get to Begur - you just walk an easy five minutes to get to the central plaza as well as all of the restaurants, cafes, bars and shops in the village. Your car is only necessary for trips to the surrounding areas, including of course the famous Costa Brava beaches and the "Camí de Ronda", the beautiful coastal track that hugs the wild coastline. The house is incredibly spacious and intelligently designed. The entry level upstairs contains the garage and all the living areas and the level below contains the sleeping rooms, all of which access the private garden which leads to the pool (shared with three other houses). There is a big terrace for outdoor dining - as with the whole of the indoor living area, it also benefits from the incredible views to the village and the sea. At night the lights of Begur and it's medieval castle light up, making a spectacular backdrop as you sit and relax. The shared garden and pool also enjoys the wonderful views. Given its central location, Begur's beaches are on your doorstep (Sa Riera 5 mins, Sa Tuna 10 mins) as well as the adjoining beaches of Pals, Aiguablava and more. The first thing you see as you enter the house upstairs are the impressive views. which is a big open living and dining area, kitchen, extra wide oven, induction hob, microwave, nesspreso machine, wine fridge, fridge freezer, dishwasher, a toilet and a direct access to the garage for one car. Downstairs you access to the ground floor, four bedrooms with all doors to garden. There is a laundry room with washing machine, dryer & ironing table. There is air conditioning and central heating throughout the holiday home. Internet access, WiFi, Sat TV. A barbecue is included as well.

About Richard Dinnie

We are currently on expatriate assignment, so we have made our recently acquired home in the Costa Brava, which is fitted out to our own requirements, available for short-term renting.

Richard Dinnie purchased this villa in 2014

Why Richard Dinnie chose Baix Emporda

Why wouldn't we want to buy here. Begur itself, and the surrounding area, is unspoilt by the mass tourism which has shamed other parts of the Spanish coastline. Sensible and controlled development has preserved its status and its famous coastline and the interior with its medieval villages offers a treasure trove of experiences for a wide variety of interests. Gastronomically, it is incredibly rich.

What makes this villa unique

Our house is one of the very few large and modern houses which you can honestly say is right in the centre of the village, a true 5 minutes walk to the central plaza. We love that because that means we can walk into the town on a moments notice without any thought. This is the real southern European experience, and it completely changes how you experience a town such as Begur.

Unlike the other beach side towns in the region, Begur has a large permanent population making it worth visiting any month of the year. It offers a truly genuine experience whenever you visit.

And because it is in the town, you never feel isolated or insecure. There's always someone to help!

wonderful holiday, beautiful home - gorgeous Begur

  • 5 of 5

We visited Begur in June 2015. The villa was as described on the website. Well furnished, lots of space and an easy walking distance to town centre with ample choices for food and wine. We stayed for one week and loved the local feel and loved the beaches. The view each night from the balcony was spectacular and a special memory for our family.

A really nice surprise

  • 5 of 5

We had been to Begur and knew that we wanted to go back. We were lucky enough to find this beautiful house, perfectly maintained and furnished with a lot of taste. Ideally located, dominating Begur, with stunning views and so close to the city center ! Not to mention the swimming pool, the easy access to all facilities, the quietness of the area.

The house is really well designed and has all the necessary equipment (and more !) to spend really enjoyable holidays and to discover the various beaches around and to enjoy Catalan food.

We can only recommend this place.

Further Details:

The charming medieval town of Begur with its cobbled streets and pretty town square provides most needs, such as doctors, pharmacy, supermarkets, banks, bakery, fishmonger, butchers, a traditional outdoor market with local foods as well as a fine selection of bars, restaurants and boutiques.

This a very unspoiled region, with no high rise flats or mass tourism. There are many leisure activities close to hand, including diving, snorkelling, horse riding, golf, hiking and mountain biking. There are many historic villages and towns close by which are well worth visiting, as are the three Dali museums close-by.

The local region is well known for its fine food, wines and other specialty produce and the many superb restaurants close by reflect this.

The beaches Aiguablava, Aiguafreda, Fornells, Illa Roja, Platja Fonda, Platja del Raco, Sa Riera and Sa Tuna are uniquely beautiful coves that make up the Begur coastline: these are mostly tiny beaches with crystal clear waters, surrounded by splendid vegetation and cliffs which give the region its name (the wild coast) yet most beaches have easy access and are excellently serviced.

Due to the popularity of the area, Begur has easy access to very thorough tourist information about places and events happening nearby, especially in the summer months.
