“Villa was terrific. We thought it could be made even better with a telescope/binoc's for the balcony to look into the view/wildlife” R. Jones, July 2012
“Jane our home agent was a delight. She even came and jumped one of our cars which had a dead battery. We loved the home. It was not quite as close to the water or town as we anticipated, but other than that it was well appointed.” P. Spink, July 2012
“The standard of this property was as expected, and we were very happy with this villa.” D. McGuinness, July 2012

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at La Colina." P. Faure September 2009
Stunning south facing villa in Begur with outstanding panoramic views of sea and countryside. La Colina is beautifully presented and designed with style, space and comfort in mind.
A short cut walk from the villa takes you to the historic castle town of BEGUR in approximately 15 mins or 3 mins by car. There is a fantastic choice of restaurants, tapas bars, cafes and a few late night cellar bars making Begur attractive to all age groups. A relaxing time can be spent exploring the cobbled streets which are littered with beautiful shops, cafes and restaurants and the weekly market is always fun with clothes, food and general items on sale. If you walk up to the castle at the head of the town you can enjoy amazing views and there are many interesting walks from Begur details of which can be found at the local tourist office. No traffic passes through the centre of the village which makes the old square an enchanting place to sit and watch the world go by whilst sitting at one of the outside cafes or bars. In the high season there is much activity in both the squares in Begur with local artists` work on display, activities for children and live music with dancing, both traditional and modern.
The charming coastal resort of TAMARIU has a promenade with many seafront restaurants and this is 2.75 km, about 7 mins by car. There are many other beaches and seaside towns within 10-15 mins drive. Also of great interest is the medieval walled town of Pals(15mins) and Peratallada(20mins). Since this region was the home to Salvador Dali, you can visit his castle at Pubol (20mins), his museum at Figueres (45mins) and his summer house (absolutely fascinating) at Port Lligat((1hr). These are approximate drive times.
La Colina is approached by a steep private drive with parking for 2-3 cars. There is a gate leading to the entrance on the ground floor which opens to a hallway and a twin bedroom and shower room. A further door reveals a dressing area and a double bedroom with shower room. Both bedrooms have sea and country views.
There is a separate entrance to the main house approached by steps to the front door which opens into a very spacious living area and immediately you see the stunning views of sea and countryside from the expanse of glass doors on two sides of the room. Comfortable seating and dining furniture is in abundance and further seating and dining is provided on the south facing terrace which leads directly off the living room. The kitchen is set back from the living area with a laundry room leading off, housing washing machine and tumble dryer. At the side of the house near the laundry room is an outside clothes drying area.
A hallway leads to the bedroom area where there is a double bedroom with en suite bathroom and glass sliding doors to the poolside terrace. There are a further two twin bedrooms each with glass doors to the poolside terrace and these two rooms share a bathroom. Four of the five bedrooms enjoy sea and country views and each is well equipped with clothes storage facilities. The double beds are each 160 cm and single beds 90 cm width. If there are 11 people in your group an additional folding bed can be provided on request. This is narrower than the normal single bed size and is more suitable for a child or young teenager than for an adult.
Air-conditioning is provided throughout the house as well as a wood burning stove for the winter months.
Outside you will find many areas to explore and in which to relax making this a particularly good option for two families holidaying together. The south facing terrace off the living area has comfortable seating and dining table and chairs for 10 people. The poolside terrace has sunbeds and the back garden, approached by steps from both sides of the house is a real haven, away from it all, where you can relax on the grass or in the swing seat in absolute peace and enjoy wonderful views. Garden lighting means that you can also dine al fresco in the evening as there is a built in bbq, picnic table and benches.

ABOUT THE AREA ~ this is the unspoilt COSTA BRAVA or CATALUNYA which is free from large Tour Operated holidays and where most of the properties are owned by Barcelonians. It is rarely overcrowded and has retained real Spanish charm without a souvenir shop in sight! This is an area you will want to return to again and again.... Every day there will be a different place of interest to visit, be it a cultural pursuit or another sundrenched sandy cove with clear water to while away the day. All the coastal resorts here have waterfront restuarants, cafes and shops and it is a real pleasure to wander the little streets around the front and enjoy the spectacular scenery that this rugged coastline offers. Development here is mainly villas as the terrain does not allow for large apartment blocks and the coastline remains intact with some wonderful coastal path walks.
The nearest beach at TAMARIU is just a 7 minute drive and here you will find the prettiest sandy bay with waterfront restaurants, shops and cafes. Also within 10-15 minutes are the excellent beaches and coastal villages of AIGUABLAVA, SA RIERA, CALELLA DE PALAFRUGELL and LLAFRANC.
BEGUR - This charming hillside town with its cobbled streets offers the visitor an outstanding choice of Catalan restaurants, tapas bars and shops. The main square has entertainment in the high season and there are many late night bars and a couple of discos. The overall atmosphere is very Spanish with local artists` paintings and crafts displayed in the square during the summer. Every Wednesday there is a market sellling fruit/veg clothes and accessories. There are excellent supermarkets,specialist fishmonger, butchers` shops and freshly baked bread available in many shops.
There are many other places of interest including Salvador Dalis castle at PUBOL and his amazing museum at FIGUERES, where you cannot fail to be drawn in by his diverse art. At LA BISBAL the streets are littered with ceramic shops and there is also an antique centre. GIRONA is a wonderful small city to visit, known as mini-Barcelona, with its own charming ramblas and interesting shops and pavement restaurants. BARCELONA, if you crave city life, is one hour by train from FLACA (20mins by car from BEGUR) and here you can leave your car and get right into the centre of BARCELONA by train.
The border of FRANCE is approximately one hour away but you will find all you need and more in this beautiful and charming unspoilt region of SPAIN, Costa Brava, Catalunya.
Our neighbours houses are also available for rental so if you are a large group you can enquire for availability.
