We are a professional couple with a small family who came to this area for a holiday in 2006 and fell in love with the charms of Begur and the Baix D'Emporada.
We love this area for its unique Catalan feel and the authentic relaxed village that is Begur.It offers the real Catalonia-from the impromptu Catalan dancing in the square in Begur on Saturday nights to the best of Catalan food in the restaurants.The Catalans have made us feel welcome and at home .Begur is a family village which is safe and offers us a great experience year after year.
We chose our villa for is location which is so close to the heart of Begur but is exceedingly quiet with beautiful sea views.It has a large enclosed garden which is difficult to find in Begur and that garden has matured gracefully over the past few years with fig,lemon,apple ,cherry and pear trees not to mind the two olive trees.It is bliss having your lunch under the shade of these trees !
It is never unbearably hot in Begur as a cooling breeze comes in from the sea -another advantage of our villa .We have added pool heating and air conditioning as facilities to our villa and these have proved great additions to the overall comfort of Villa Rosa.
Beautiful Seaviews as well as views over Begur village,Begur castle and the surrounding trees and hills.
Heated private pool with large garden.
Safe and quiet area-no passing traffic.
Close proximity to Begur-a stroll into the village.
