The Costa Brava/Catalonia/Barcelona region
The 'Costa Brava' is translated as the 'wild coast' and when you see the coastline here you will understand why with tiny little coves and bays found in amongst the cliffs it is not surprising that the area is so unspoilt.
This part of Catalonia is widely renowned for its good food and wines. There are many great restaurants in the area from the cheap and cheerful pizza parlours to the michelin starred gourmet restaurants. All have the same thing in common they are all extremely good value for your money.If cooking is your passion, then local raw ingredients are fantastic with fresh fish and shellfish, vegetables, fruit, breads and cheeses available locally in the market on a daily basis. There are a number of local vineyards only too happy for you to share their knowledge and taste their wines. All in all this part of the relatively undiscovered Spain is a feast for all your senses.
Begur is a medieval village with lots of character at the base of the castle ramparts. There are no high rise buildings or tacky mass developments The centre of the village is pedestrianised and a maze of charming narrow streets with some facinating architecture. There are many wonderful restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets. There are lots of small shops and boutiques in the centre of the village near the church square. This square tends to be the focal point for entertainment in the evenings with many artisan markets, art festivals, sardanas dancing and children's activity programmes running all summer. In the local park ,which is just around the corner from the villa, there are facilities for both smaller children and teenagers alike. Of course the local beaches have to be the biggest natural facility we have. Sa Riera is just at the bottom of the hill above the villa and nearby Aigua Blava, Sa Tuna, Aigua Freda and Pals mean you are spoilt for choice!
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!!) An ideal 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.
Each is distinct now with a unique charm, some larger than others but all with a genuine Spanish ambience with small restaurants, bars and shops just a stones throw from the unspoilt beaches. The beaches of each little bay are all distinct and have their own individual charms, some larger than others, some more lively than others, all with crystal clear water and wonderful scenery. Aigua Blava and Fornells lie to the South of Begur, the beach at Aigua Blava is a gently sloping and sheltered, sandy beach with crystal clear waters. There are moorings in the bay and a small jetty allowing yachts men to pull up for a lazy lunch in one of the small restaurants on the tiny beach.
There are no high rise developments or English fish and chip shops. There are some small hotels and guest-houses catering for tourists. It is a great place to come in the evening to watch the sunset and try the local tapas. Agua Gelida is close to Tamariu, yet far enough away to enjoy the peace and quiet of the wonderful scenery yet close enough to enjoy the delights of the nearby bars and restaurants.
Coastal walks and forest tracks are amongst the most beautiful in Spain, the scenery is spectacular and totally unspoilt making it one of the most desirable holiday locations. Casa de Campo is a quiet inland area with a small number of privately owned villas set amongst the pine forest. With walks through forest paths and country drives to the beaches it is a nature lovers dream location.
Pallafrugell is the nearest large town. About 4 km from the coast, Pallafrugell is a typically Spanish town, with all the facilities of a market town. On Sunday morning it is home to a huge market, which takes place all year round. During the week there is a covered market with a fabulous selection of fruit, vegetables, fish and shellfish, meat and poultry. The medieval centre of the town is pedestrianised and is the main shopping area. Property Cliff ViewThere are numerous bars and restaurants serving typical Catalan dishes and tapas. There are a number of supermarkets and specialist shops where you should be able to find any thing you may need. The central town square offers a venue for street entertainment, check it out during the Sunday morning market.
