About Ms Brenda Geoghegan
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.
Ms Brenda Geoghegan purchased this Villa in 2006
Why Ms Brenda Geoghegan chose Begur
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.

my visit to Begur
this is a wonderful house with oodles of space , perfect for family gatherings.Decorated to the highest of standards,it is worth every penny. I enjoyed the proximity to the village and the local beaches are spectactular. Can't wait to go back !
Thanks for your lovely comments.We try to make our house a cut above the rest with high class furnishing and decoration-to make it a villa worth revisiting!As you say,our closeness to Begur is a real plus with all those restaurants,bars and shops-but don't forget those castle and sea views!!You will be most welcome to come and visit again!
Great location , super clean, and loved Begur!
Great location and great accommodation! All of our group of 10, ranging in age from 16 to 90, were very comfortable and truly enjoyed our time. The house is an easy walk to many great restaurants and shops in the center of Begur and a short drive (or bus ride) to several really nice beaches. If you're thinking of Costa Brava, this is an excellent place to stay! Only glitch was the very poor internet service for most of our stay. It did get fixed on our last day but not so helpful for us.
Fantastic stay, All our needs catered for!
Amazing holiday had by all of my family, we all thoroughly enjoyed our stay, from the amazing nights dining out in the gem of Begur to the trips to the picturesque of Sa Riera.
The owner Brenda was just fantastic at informing us about activities and restaurants in the nearby area.She notified us about this fantastic walk from the villa to the nearby beach, Sa Riera, it was just a truly amazing experience walking from the house down to the beach.
The restaurants in Begur are truly fantastic, there is a restaurant for every group travelling, one of the owner's recommendations was a lovely Cocktail Bar/Restaurant called El Jardí De Can Marc, it was unbelievable the tapas we were served and the amazing cocktails, there were even non-alcoholic cocktails for the younger part of the group.
The villa itself was in pristine condition, our beds were made, the kitchen was spotless, dining area and living room were immaculate. The views from the balcony were truly outstanding.The pool was perfectly clean and safe for the younger children which was truly amazing, the pool heating was perfect, the air conditioning was also outstanding for keeping us cool on the hotter days. Parking was absolutely perfect for my family, easily accessible and plentiful.
To anybody wishing to stay in such a beautiful area like Begur, I would recommend booking this villa.
Nice property in a good area, however, not really child-friendly with the amountof stairs and steps.
Brenda, the owner, and local management team are very helpful and informative of the area - the advice given was useful and appreciated.
we were very pleased with the villa, great location and loads of space for the big family group
We had a wonderful & relaxing week at Villa Rosa
We had a wonderful & relaxing week at Villa Rosa, this was our second visit, it's a real home from home so ideal if you have young children. The outdoor area is very pretty and the heated pool is great. The location is really good; a lovely beach, shops, supermarkets & restaurants are all within walking distance although I would recommend hiring a car if you want to go slightly further afield.
It was extremely peaceful and the area was very nice with beautiful views over looking the sea.
The property was so well maintained & the owner was easy to contact.
We will be returning!
Thank you Josephine for your kind words and you will always be welcome to come back to Beautiful Begur again!
