The house is built on three levels the basement has a fully equipped home gym. On ground floor level is the open plan living/dining room opening onto the garden, kitchen, which is exceptionally well equipped for large numbers and utility room. On the same level there are three large double bedrooms with lots of storage space all opening to the garden and pool. The master has a large en suite bathroom.

This house we recomend to groups or families with teenage children. The location really makes this a good choice for this age group who are close enough to everything that parents are not constantly ferrying to and fro'. It is a comfortable stylish house in a good location. We have no hesitation in recommending it.
If you haven't been to this area before Begur is a small village of 4000 people in the off season which swells substantially in summer time. The landscape is rocky and the coastline rugged with lots of small bays which makes it very special. There is a choice of beaches nearby with Aigua Blava the nearest at just over 2 miles from this villa. 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 fascinating 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 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.
This part of Catalonia is widely renowned for its good food and wines.
