We had a wonderful stay. The house and property were lovely with many amenities and various seating areas to enjoy the view, sun and/or shade throughout the day. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking and barbecue. The owners and Gina, the local contact, were very responsive to our questions both before and during our stay and to our request for an extended stay. The surrounding area was beautiful and provided various activities for the varying interests of our group. We agree with the other comments about the restaurants in Begur and particularly enjoyed the restaurant, Different, for a celebratory dinner. We would definitely rent this lovely property again.
Thanks! We hope to hear from you again!
Gorgeous property with all modern comforts
Splendid villa and beautiful location.
Six of us stayed for a week at El Faro in September 2018.We transferred from Girona Airport with Shuttle Spain and fortunately the owners had given us the villa's GPS coordinates.
Once ensconced in the villa we were able to appreciate the wonderful views across Sa Tuna and enjoy the vast terrace that incorporated the pool, herb beds,several seating areas,the barbeque,boule court and the main external dining area.
The villa itself has three large bedrooms,lounge,dining and kitchen plus two toilet/shower areas (so no queueing for showers!)
We hired a car from Ganxo in Palafrugell and they delivered/collected it promptly from the villa.Ganxo do not charge extra for additional drivers and you fill the tank to where it was on arrival.A very good service!
Sa Tuna is a 10-15 minute downhill hike and a 15-20 uphill slog coming back.Of course you can drive down but you need to be early to park.There is supposedly a local bus service but,whilst we saw the bus stop,we never saw a bus!
The restaurants are very busy in Sa Tuna and offer average to good food and we only had one lunch there but did enjoy coffee and croissant at the Sa Tuna Hotel in the mornings.
The restaurants in Begur were far superior and we walked on three occasions to the town in the cool of the evening.This is about a 35 minute walk mainly uphill and it really makes you appreciate your first beer in Begur.Turandot and Different restaurants are both excellent but you should book in advance.The town is charming and bars around the town square are perfect for people watching.The ladies enjoyed shopping for clothes!Avoid La Escalopa,number one on Tripadvisor, it's poor.
Sa Tuna offers excellent coastal walks to the neighbouring coves and the paths and walls are a work of art.We walked to Sa Riera via Aiguafreda where the wonderful Sa Rascassa hotel and restaurant is to be found.Book dinner here and sit beneath the light festooned plane trees whilst eating fine food!
Shopping for food was easy as we just took the car to the Jodofi supermarket which is by Camping Begur just outside the town on the road to Palafrugell.Sa Tuna has no food shopping.
We also went to the markets in Begur and Palafrugell and bought excellent fish,meat,pates,salamis,fruit,bread and vegetables.Needless to say we also bought some very good wine in Jodofi and Carrefour in Palafrugell.
We visited Calalella de Palafrugell,Sa Riera,Sa Tuna and Tamariu beaches.The former was probably the best.Great villa and great holiday!
We are glad that you had such a good time in our villa in Begur!
We hope to welcome you again soon😉�
Very kind regards,
Mr and Mrs Van kerckhoven
ps During this wintertume we will have a big renovation (new kitchen, larger dining room etc...) you will find the pictures on the site beginning 2019.
La casa estaba impecable, todo nuevo, reformado y agradable para pasar la estancia.
Las fotos dicen poco de lo que es la casa realmente, una vez estas allí no te terminas de creer que es la casa que has alquilado.
La casa es muy grande y está muy bien cuidada. La recomiendo 100%
you were the first to rent after we reformed the house! We didn’t have time to make new pictures for the site😉
Pictures will follow soon !
Begur is located in the province of Gerona, 45 km from Girona Airport and 142 km o f Barcelona. There is a typical Mediterranean-climate and an average temperature of 26 ° in summer. The medieval castle doimineert
the skyline of the town surrounded by small reserves zeebaaitjes and therefore traditional character. Partly due to the absence of high-rise residential Begur remains a resort with several star restaurants in the area as well as nine golf courses, the beaches are small and therefore do not attract mass tourism. Notwithstanding the different bays accessible by public a private car still recommended.
