The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
The Costa Brava is one of the world's top destinations in 2012, according to the National Geographic. The amazing coastline offers everything from long sandy beaches to tiny coves, with pine trees along the beautiful coastal walks. It has some of the cleanest waters in Europe.
Inland you can explore medieval villages and towns, the Emporda, historic centres like Girona, Besalu and Barcelona. Together with the world famous land of Dali - Cadaques, Figueres and Pubol, the wonderful gastronomy and stunning scenery, Catalonia has something for everybody.
The mild climate and hot sunny summers attracts visitors throughout the year.
The Begur area
Begur, an upmarket little town, sits on a volcanic plug topped by a crumbling medieval castle that has 360 degree views over the sea, town and Pyrennees. The narrow streets of Begur have many delightful neo classical mansions built by local merchants returning from Cuba in the 19th century. This was an area targeted by pirates, and there is a series of medieval look out towers throughout the town.
The town centre has been well preserved and restored and has many and varied restaurants to suit all tastes, cafes, shops and facilities. There is a weekly market, regular events rich in local colour such as sardana dancing and havanere singing, In August you can run with the fireworks - the corre focs - in neighbouring towns which is an unmissable experience.
The town is close to several fabulous beaches which can be accessed either by foot, local buses or by car. There are restaurants at most of the beaches and many offer water sports. If you don't feel like the beach, the town open air swimming pool has grassy surrounds, tennis courts and cafe/restaurant. There are many attractions from the water funpark in Playa to walking the wonderful coastal walk.

A wonderful town house in the Begur. Excellent facilities for both winter and summer holidays, open log fire for cold evenings in February. Good enclosed garden with outdoor cooking as well as roof terrace which catches the winter sun. Very comfortable beds and plenty of living areas for larger groups. One of the best properties we have stayed in.
