There is a lift to all levels with ramps to the terraces.The bathrooms are all fitted with standard sanitary ware. There are gates to prevent small children accessing the pool area. Surrounded on three sides by huge terraces this villa has lots of outside space. It is south facing so gets the sun all day long. There is a large retractable sun shade one side of the villa with a dining table, chairs and comfy seating area which is easily accessible to the kitchen. On the pool side there are a number of sun loungers etc., in full sun. There is lots of space for children to play. This villa is in a beautiful area very close to the small cove at Aigua Gelida which is really not well known and used mainly by local families. It is a fantastic bay for children with lots of little rock pools, great snorkelling and swimming. The villa is in a sheltered south facing location. The pool terrace is exceptionally sunny and benefits from a covered area for shade from the mid day sun. There is a gate to prevent little ones from accessing the pool area. There are lovely views from the terrace and master bedroom over the trees to the sea. Broadband internet access is available. The villa is about 15 mins walk to Tamariu, 5 mins to Aigua Blava and close to Begur and Palafrugell for shopping, eating out etc., there are also restaurants and a small supermarket in Tamariu.
The Begur area : The Begur area is for many an undiscovered treasure with its lovely village set on top of the Cap de Begur. There are lots of small chic boutiques, art galleries and shops catering for all budgets during the summer season. Begur is well know for its great restaurants, bars and the couple of very discreet nightclubs. It is not noisy high rise Spain but quite the reverse. One guest last year summed it up for me when she called Begur 'genteel'. There tends to be a family atmosphere during the school holidays. The beaches are sandy and the waters warm and non tidal so perfect for swimming, snorkelling and diving. During the months of May/June and September/October we tend to have visitors who wish to golf, walk, cycle, ride horses and generally take in the wonderful surrounding countryside. If you wish we can arrange walking routes for you, bike hire. Tee times on the local golf courses or in a local society for a light hearted competition can also be arranged just ask us.

The Catalunia region
The villa is located just south of Begur on the hill between Aigua Blava Bay and Tamariu two of the loveliest beaches on the Spanish Mediterranean coastline. Aigua Blava is the jewel in the crown of the Cost Brava and the reason is clear when you see the beautiful bay with its green blue waters and soft golden sands. It is a very child friendly beach with a gentle slope into the water. There are two restaurants on the beach serving good food at reasonable prices. Aigua Blava, Begur is just about 75 mins south of the French border and about 95 mins from Barcelona City centre making it an ideal base to allow full exploration of the Costa Brava area with both the beach areas and also the medieval towns and villages to be found inland. To the north are the beaches of Sa Tuna, Aiguafreda, Sa Riera and Pals so you will be spoilt for choice if you are tempted to leave the poolside for a swim! Not a beach person? don't worry the area has lots to offer history, art, music, dance, walking etc
The picturesque town of Begur nestles in the hillside under its 16th Century fortified castle, many of the narrow cobbled streets at its base are now pedestrianised and the hub of the town itself.
With wonderful views of the sea it is set 700ft above sea level and close to many different sandy coves and bays. The old centre of the town is the main entertainment area with numerous bars and restaurants and a couple of nightclubs. During the high season there is a wealth of entertainment aimed at all ages from puppet shows, face painting etc., for the children to traditional Catalonian 'sardanas' dancing in the square during the evenings.
In fact the church square plays a major role in all activities during the summer and is the location of artisan markets, art fairs, classical concerts, the weekly market each Wednesday, the open air disco (for all ages from 8 to 80!!) In fact the place to meet friends have fun or simply watch the world go by.
The fact that the local beaches are all relatively small and the land hilly has helped keep the area relatively unspoilt. There are no high rise developments in this area, all development is low key and mostly privately owned. Because the area is unsuitable for large tour operators, there is none of the commercial mass development that is prevalent in other locations along the Costa Brava.
The Local Authority has an active 'Green' environmentally friendly policy, with strict planning regulations maintaining the overall charm of the area. The pine forests, which give the beaches their unique backdrop, are protected and together with the naturally rugged coastline make these some of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Unlike other parts of Spain these distinctive beaches along this part of the Costa Brava are stunning without the crowds, Within the immediate area of Begur town there are some wonderful coastal villages all of which were at one time fishing villages.

Thank you for taking time to review Villa Llangelida. It is a great house for small children and very popular with families like yours. We are so glad you enjoyed the area and that you liked the restaurants that David suggested. It is always good to have an inside track on the area as sometimes places change from year to year. We look forward to seeing you all next September again.

"Great location, fantastic views, brilliant family holiday rental"
We stayed here in July for one week with our four daughters aged 2 1/2, 15, 18 and 21 and really enjoyed our holiday. The villa is great for large families or groups as there is plenty of space. It is… More
Thank you for taking the time to send a review. We really appreciate the feedback. By knowing what people feel we can improve our service and try to provide whatever people feel would improve the villa.
We are so glad you had such a great holiday staying at Llangelida and will be more than happy to see you again next year. We found the leak in the ceiling and are happy to say it was repaired and the ceiling redecorated before the arrival of the next family. It is a great holiday home for large family groups and as you say there is lots of space. It really is an excellent 'home from home' choice with many extras not normally found in rental accommodation. Thanks again for such a positive review.

"Fantastic holiday home with beautiful views close to the beach"
We visited Begur last September and I can only say it was a wonderful holiday in the most beautiful place. Begur is a small village/town on a hill surrounded by lovely little beaches. Villa llangelida was at the top of the hill overlooking Tamariu on one side and Aigua Blava on the other. We walked to both bays from the villa and loved both & thought Tamariu is more commercial than aigua Blava with more restaurants etc., The house itself was just amazing. In the photos it looks small and the area around the pool looks small but when you are there it is really big and very comfortable with enough sun loungers for everybody. We really liked the bar-b-que area and decided to eat at home much of the time because it was so great. The children spent 90% of their time in the pool and with the solar heating it was great for the little ones. The house is very child friendly with secure gates on the stairs and down to the pool. There is also Wifi which made it easy for us to keep in contact and for my husband to get some work done. The en suite bathrooms were a big plus for us with two couples, two teenagers and two small children 2 &4. No queues for the bathroom! We found the house exceptionally clean and everything was in good condition and working well. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. The beds were very comfortable and by leaving windows open to the front and back of the house we always had a cool sea breeze. There are railings on the windows so we felt very safe leaving all the windows open day and night. The service provided by the management company was excellent and we had no trouble finding the house with directions supplied. David was there to meet us, show us around and give us some ideas for our holiday which were all very helpful. We couldn't get the TV to work shortly after he left so he came right back to show us what buttons to push! (ever feel dumb?) that was no trouble to him and he was just charming about being dragged back again. David recommended a number of good restaurants in the area every single one we tried was fabulous from the shack on the dirt track for bar-b-que chicken to Michelin star Casa mar. if you enjoy good food pick his brains he knows all the best places. We would highly recommend this villa, this management company and the area as a whole for a wonderful holiday and hopefully will be back again this year.

"Fantastic choice for a family holiday"
We were two families one based in Madrid the other in Rome. This was the meeting point and we couldn't have been happier. Both double bedrooms were excellent, the twin rooms more than comfortable… More
Thanks a million for your great review. Muchas gracias a todos! We look forward to seeing you again in August and will have some cava chilled and ready for you! The bathrooms have been completely upgraded this winter so the house is even better than you remember.
Looking forward to seeing you again later in the year.
