This is a beautiful and extremely spacious traditional Catalan Masia (farmhouse), located in the valley above Sa Riera bay, only a 10 minute walk to the beach. It is almost unique to find a Masia such as this so close to the coast and the local area, 'Mas Mato', is named after this house. You can reach Begur in 5 minutes by car. It has a private pool in a lovely secluded garden at the rear of the house and a private drive and large parking area for 3 cars at the front of the house. Upstairs, there are 3 large bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and a huge lounge with sofa bed, plus sun terrace with views of Begur castle and the valley. Downstairs, the entrance hall leads to a fully equipped kitchen, a vaulted TV lounge, a vaulted dinning room and a shaded terrace overlooking the pool and garden. The thick stone walls keep the house deliciously cool in summer and wonderfully warm during the winter.
We had a super time in Begur and really enjoyed everything about the village and the beaches and the house and the garden and the pool and the weather and the food ...
Thank you very much!
We stayed at Mas Mato for a week in mid-late June. It was perfect for our party of seven, getting together for a family reunion -- with members arriving from the UK and NZ. It's in a beautiful part of Catalonia -- Begur and the surrounding bays and beaches are stunning, the house itself is extremely spacious with several different spaces to relax and hang out. It is well-equipped and homely, rather than polished luxury -- which adds to the relaxing ambience. The pool is brilliant, the walk down the steps to the beach is about 5 minutes and the owners Paula and Chris are extremely accommodating. For us they converted one of the spare rooms into an extra bedroom -- which worked a treat -- and we arrived to find various goodies in the Fridge. A fab place for families or larger groups with loads of character and an authentic rustic feel about it.
We stayed this year the 5th time in this nice farmhouse. From this you can already see that we love this house!
It is a beautiful place to relax. You can go to different nice beaches wich are 10-15minutes by car away or if you are to lazy even for this it is great to stay also one day at the nice pool.

In July 2012 we have been for the 2nd time in Mas Mato. We enjoyed the time there again, the house and the region are perfect for relaxed holidays. Paula and Chris are very kind and always willing to help if something is needed. Mas Mato is well appointed, there is everything you need during the holiday. Our kids like the pool and we love to sit on the terrace with the nice view and to have a barbecue. You can reach different nice beaches with good infrastructure within some minutes by car. In the evening you can go to various places with nice restaurants and bars. Next year we will come back, we look forward for another great and relaxed time!
Begur is the jewel of the Costa Brava. The medieval hilltop fishing village with its castle is surrounded by pine-clad hills that shelter gorgeous small coves with golden sand and crystal clear blue water. Most bays have small hotels and restaurants where the classic Mediterranean lunch of grilled sardines and salad should be eaten, washed down with cold pink (rosat) wine. The surrounding Baix Emporda landscape is extremely varied: agricultural countryside, forests, mountains and rivers, with many historic towns and villages to explore. Almost any leisure activity imaginable is possible within the vicinity, from the more usual pursuits of walking, cycling, horse riding and golf to the more extremes of para-gliding and sky-diving at Empuria-brava (40 km). All water sports, from scuba-diving to yacht sailing, are available at locations close by along the coast. For the evening, Begur and the surrounding area have restaurants, bars and clubs to suit all tastes.
