Los Nisperos, Begur
Los Nisperos is a beautifully equipped Catalan style villa, completed and furnished to a very high standard. The villa is nestled into the mountainside above Sa Tuna, overlooking the Mediterranean Sea. It is surrounded by extensive, well maintained landscaped gardens providing areas of interest, shade and a high degree of privacy. The accommodation comprises 4 bedrooms (3 doubles and 1 twin), 2 ensuite bathrooms, 1 family bathroom and downstairs wc. Downstairs are the kitchen and open plan living/dining area. Two sets of French doors lead to open and covered terracing with bbq where there is an additional table and seating for al-fresco dining. One bedroom suite is located downstairs and is ideal for guests. There are large terraces on both floors to enable you to take full advantage of the stunning views. Because of the design and location of the villa, the inside remains cool throughout the summer season, but there is the added benefit of a remote control ceiling fan in the living area and fans in the bedrooms.
The villa is located in an exclusive residential area, 5 minutes’ drive from the centre of Begur. The picturesque cove of Sa Tuna is the local beach, although there are many other beaches and tranquil coves to choose from, Platja de Pals, Tamariu, Calella and Llafranc to name but a few. The fishing harbour of Palamos and the cosmopolitan Platja dAro are only 30 minutes’ drive if you want a change of pace. The places of interest are many and varied: stroll around the larger towns of Roses or Palamos, take a trip into charming Girona, situated on the river, with its cathedral and old quarter, or enjoy a day in Barcelona visiting the sights or shopping. The villa is centrally located for a number of popular golf courses. There are also many beautiful coastal walks nearby, leading to places of interest with spectactular views. The local tourist office is happy to provide full details and maps of the walks, local area activities and markets.
Out and About
Begur has supermarkets, cafes, banks, boutiques, tourist information office and pharmacies. For an evening out, there are numerous restaurants and chic nightclubs. There are a number of fiestas in Begur and surrounding towns throughout the season. These are a great day out and we would recommend checking with the local tourist office for dates. Outdoor activities are popular in this area of Spain, and there is a wealth to choose from: golf, walking, cycling and horseriding, to any number of watersports. For a romantic day out, why not charter a cruiser, head out on the water and discover a peaceful cove for lunch. Alternatively, there are a number of excellent organised cruises to choose from.
Further afield you could take a long drive through the nearby Pyrenees and discover the principality of Andorra (approx 5 hrs). A hive of activity during the winter skiing season, this area is also a wonderful place to visit in the summer for the scenery and excellent duty free shopping.
The villa is surrounded by extensive terraced gardens with an area to suit everyone, from sunny sheltered areas by the pool, to a cool shady area under the trees with a stone table and benches. There is an undercover barbecue and seating area near to the pool with a sink. The pool is 8 x 4m in size with plenty of sunbeds and easy chairs for relaxing. Towels and linen are provided but please bring your own beach towels. The washing machine is located in the garage. Unfortunately due to the steps up to the villa, we would not recommend it to anyone with impaired mobility.
