Overview

About the property

Built new for 2007 with air-con.

Villa Hermosa is an imposing three story villa with commanding views of the Catalan countryside and the sea. Located in a quiet wooded area on the edge of the historic village of Begur and 5 min drive from the wonderful beach at Aiguablava. The villa is fully air-conditioned. Private 6x4 m swimming pool, private gardens has children's play area with swings.

The villa comprises five good sized bedrooms with built in wardrobes and three bathrooms. Sea views from several bedrooms. Excellent dining terraces with sea views.

Begur is a charming village full of restaurants and boutiques and an excellent base from which to explore the Costa Brava. In summer there are numerous festivals and outdoor markets held around the medieval church square. The nearest beach at Aiguablava is deservedly popular with families with soft sand and crystal clear waters. Three beachside restaurants offer excellent opportunities for leisurely lunches.

Golf Courses: There are many excellent golf courses nearby including the Catalunya PGA. Green fees are very reasonable and the standards of the courses compare favourably with anything else in Europe. Ask for a brochure on Golf in the Costa Brava.

Yacht Charter: We have friends that run a sailing school in nearby Port d'Aro and a skippered charter can be arranged for a day or a few days for up to 8 people.

Fine Dining: Three of the world's best 50 restaurants are Catalan and within a 35 min drive. Some of the most exiting wines being produced in Europe come from this region. Why not ask us to arrange a visit to a winery or to a world class restaurant.

Begur is the jewel in the Costa Brava's crown. It is pretty and charming with narrow winding streets yet it still manages to have plenty of restaurants cafes bars and boutiques without ever feeling commercialized. The beaches and coves around Begur are spectacular and the area is particularly popular with well healed families. Two of the worlds ten best restaurants are within a 30 min drive. Catalan cuisine is world renowned and those who love their food and wine will love Begur. Inland there are wonderful medieval villages, Roman ruins Bisbal potteries and the great outdoors.

Perfect Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My parents, aunt,uncle and a couple of friends including my 6 year old god-daughter throughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Hermosa. The house was immaculate and furnished to a very high standard. Location was perfect set in mature woodlands but close to fantastic Begur and all its great eateries.

The house has a lower section which can sleep 4 which gives extra privacy if needed when sharing the house. Pool great and upper garden with swings delightful. I would thoroughly recommend a stay here!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind comments. We find that families enjoy staying at Hermosa because it has something for all ages. Being so close to Begur and all those restaurants is one of the reasons we chose the villa. Thanks again.

Family holiday

  • 4 of 5

Loved the location of the villa, being close to Begur town centre and the local beaches with an excellent supermarket nearby. A car is essential to reach the beaches and also the town centre due to the hilly nature of the area. The villa is lovely and comfortable, and the views delightful. The facilities were very good but on booking the one facility that was important to us was the lift, however, on final payment we were advised that the lift could only be used for transporting shopping etc, not for people. There is no internal staircase so those in the bedrooms on the lower floor had to use the outside staircases to reach the upper floor. On the basis that people cannot use the lift and with approximately 40 stairs to climb to reach the front door this villa may not be suitable for those with walking or breathing difficulties. One of our party did have this issue and it was a concern whether he would cope, thankfully he did, with some difficulty. We really enjoyed our stay in this lovely villa and were well supported by the very helpful Managers.

Lovely house to explore local area

  • 5 of 5

Vila Hermosa is a delightful residence near to the town of Begur but ideal for exploring the region's beaches of Aiguablava, Pals, Sa Riera and Sa Tuna. We were a family of 10 people of all ages staying for a week and the house was very comfortable and accommodating for all. The swimming pool area and large balcony were particularly enjoyable. Highly recommended!

Excellent Begur villa in a great position

  • 5 of 5

The property is well equipped with everything needed for a large group - we were a party of 7 with three generations - and there was plenty of space. Everything in good condition, clean and well maintained. Very close to an excellent supermarket and 10 minutes drive from the restaurants and bars in Begur. Extremely quiet location, and nice breeze on the main terrace so eating out was never too warm even thought we had mid 30's the whole stay.

Catriona and Ryan were very responsive and helpful both before and after our stay - many thanks for an excellent holiday!

Lovely house - amazing views

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 including 3 children and one person with limited mobility had an excellent stay at Villa Hermosa. It had everything we needed - spacious and comfortable rooms, well stocked kitchen, plenty of bathrooms and outside space, and beautiful views. The lift was invaluable too especially with heavy bags and lots of shopping. The local manager was really helpful on arrival showing us where everything was and where we could find the supermarket (3 mins away by car and has everything you could possibly need including butcher, baker and fresh fish shop), child friendly restaurants etc. The weather wasn't great but that didn't matter as the amazing views, spacious house and good company more than made up for it. You definitely need a car but there's plenty of parking and there's loads to see in the local area like picturesque beaches and coves. We'd highly recommend this villa for a lovely holiday!

Owner's Response: We are lucky to have great local managers who are available to look after our guests and provide advice and recommendations. We try to ensure the villa has what guests will find useful while on holiday and is well equipped so it is good to hear you approve. The weather can be great in the Spring so it sounds like you were unlucky. Thanks for the positive feedback. Catriona and Derek

Excellent Choice

  • 5 of 5

Villa Hermosa turned out to be an excellent choice for our family holiday. The layout made it very suitable for a gathering of 3 families with an age range of 70 to 5, with everyone feeling they had enough personal space when needed. The very steep site means that young children need supervision when outside but this is worth it for the lovely views, position, facilities and accomodation. The villa is well situated in a quiet residential area just outside lovely Begur and not far from great beaches.

The property was well presented and clean. In our view, it was more spacious and better than we expected from the description and photos. Very helpful handbook provided by the owner. We all had a great week and would recommend this property.
