Lovely traditional Catalan villa with 3 double bedrooms and a bright airy interior. New bathroom/wetroom in 2010.

The villa stands in a large plot of more than 900 sq.m. with a delightful garden over 2 terraces. The property comes with a free family pass to use at a great nearby neighbourhood pool in the peak summer months. The historic town of Begur, often described as the pearl of the Costa Brava, is within easy reach and the stunning sandy beaches of Sa Riera and Aiguablava are just a short drive away. The pretty villages and beautiful beaches of Tamariu, Sa Tuna, Llafranc and Calella are only 10-15 minutes away. Inland there is much to explore, including the medieval villages of Peratallada and Pals. Active visitors can choose locally from golf, diving, horse riding, sailing walking and cycling.

Notes on accommodation
Electric fans are provided for summer months. Electric heaters are also available by arrangement for cooler months.
Hob/stove, oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, washing machine, iron/ironing board, room fans, barbeque. Cot and high chair.
Steps up to the villa and the split level design makes this property unsuitable for wheelchair users or people with mobility problems. Parents should be aware that some areas at the rear of the property (not the main lawned garden area) are unfenced. We advise that children should be supervised.
The large 900sq.m. private garden consists of two contrasting terraces. The upper terrace features a large lawned area and pretty borders making it ideal for sunbathing, playing and al fresco dining. Outdoor furniture and a barbeque are provided. The lower terrace (together with the area to the rear of the house) has been left in a natural state and is shaded by tall pine trees.
Beaches and Swimming
The Costa Brava is a stunning coastline, featuring numerous small, sheltered beaches backed by rugged, tree covered hillsides. The closest beaches are Aiguablava, a beautiful small sandy beach topped by a Parador (well worth visiting for a drink) and the excellent Tamariu (via short cut through woods). Sa Riera, Sa Tuna and Fornells are also lovely bays nearby. Within 10-15 minutes are the pretty villages of Calella, Llafranc and Tamariu which feature picturesque sandy bays and a host of waterfront bars and restaurants. There is also a family pass which provides free use of a lovely quiet, neighbourhood swimming pool in peak summer months. It is very large and is ideal for adults and children of all ages with great facilities including a friendly bar/restaurant. It is just 1300m from the house.
