About The Owner

Pamela spent much of her childhood in the South of France and longed to return. After marrying Roger and spending too many years in chilly England they decided to return to the Mediterranean area. something they have never regretted.

The Owner purchased this bungalow in 1988

Why The Owner chose Baix Emporda

In 1998 we bought the main house having chosen it for its location and potential for expansion. In 2000 having bought extra land at the side, we added The Annex.

What makes this bungalow unique

The house is in a wonderfully tranquil setting above Begur, with beautiful views of the castle, village, mountains and the sea, yet only minutes walk from the center of Begur with its wealth of restaurants, bars and shops and everything one requires for everyday living.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week in this nice and comfortable house with sea view. It offers everything you need. Roger was very helpfull but he also respected our privacy. The only 'difficult' thing in my opinion is the steep access road, but then again: you can also park your car in the street just down the house.

We visited little ancient villages (Pals, Peratallada...), we walked a few coastal paths and spend a whole day on 'Cap de Creus', a beautiful natural park.

There is more to see in this region, I know... We'll have to come back!

And relax...

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed are week at the Annex, well equipped, comfortable and its tranquil location above Begur.

The Annex is a great base for the beaches of Sa Riera and Sa Tuna, Cap Roig Gardens, Pubol (Dali's House) and Figureres for the Dali Museum.

And with great hosts in Pamela & Roger for excellent local knowledge.

Highly recommended.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place to stay! What you see in the pictures is what you get. Ideal position above Begur giving a panoramic view of the bay but only 10 mins to walk to the town. The well maintained accommodation has everything you need except your clothes. I mean everything too. No having to take salt and pepper, oil, or even a hot water bottle! The bed is very comfortable as is the lounge. The outside is peaceful but don't be surprised if you have a Peahen descend first thing in the morning to be fed when you are sitting out for breakfast. Easy to get to Cadaques and the Pyrenees. We would love to go there again. Thanks Pam and Roger for a lovely stay.
