About Property Manager
Pamela spent much of her childhood in the South of France and longed to return. After marrying Roger and spending too many years in chilly England they decided to return to the Mediterranean area. something they have never regretted.
Property Manager purchased this Bungalow in 1988
Why Property Manager chose Begur
In 1998 we bought the main house having chosen it for its location and potential for expansion. In 2000 having bought extra land at the side, we added The Annex.
What makes this Bungalow unique
The house is in a wonderfully tranquil setting above Begur, with beautiful views of the castle, village, mountains and the sea, yet only minutes walk from the center of Begur with its wealth of restaurants, bars and shops and everything one requires for everyday living.

Excellent apartment in quiet gardens with fabulous views of the coast line
This Annex is a definite home from home and is equipped with everything you would ever need .
Property was excellent
We really enjoyed our stay at the Annex.
Begur and the Costa brava are very pretty, with the coves and small resorts, not to mention the food. We also visited Cadaques, where we had camped in 1977, can remember some of it but it had obviously changed a lot.
The bungalow, garden and views, were exceptional but the drive is a bit steep, even so I managed it ok, even with hand controls. There were many extras to what we normally get, including a bottle of bubbly and it was the first time we have not had to clean before leaving, which is a great bonus.
I managed ok being disabled, but there are a few things that we had a bit of difficulty with. Outside it was difficult to get from the car to the bungalow in the loose gravel. We just managed in my wheelchair, but my scooter which is normally ok in firm gravel, just got stuck. A small path to where one got out of the car would suffice. I also found it a bit difficult with my frame on the patio, due to its unusual slope. Inside was great apart from a couple of things in the bathroom. I found the shower too difficult to use, due to having to step over the frame at the front and being a small area. The alternative of washing at the washbasin was also awkward as I couldn't get my knees under the front, when sitting in my wheelchair. A pull down rail to the opposite side of the toilet to the wall would also help, although I did manage with the wall rail. It would all depend how much you are disabled.
However we really enjoyed the stay and as I say there is always a way [well nearly always] and if I had known about the problems I may not have come and missed out on a lovely holiday.
Lovely bolthole for 2 located above Begur
We stayed for 4 nights in early October and enjoyed good weather.
Booking and communications were easy/clear with Nicola looking after all the admin. Roger is on hand next door and was very helpful with advice about the area; he is not intrusive and we felt very relaxed there.
The Annex is spacious, comfortable and well equipped. The bungalow is very clean and well prepared; plenty of towels (including beach towels) and toiletries. The area is very quiet and peaceful.
We have no hesitation in recommending the Annex as a base for touring the local coves, Cap Roig and Figueres (Dali Museum). There is an excellent choice of restaurants in Begur, though if walking, the return journey involves a steep climb. The local roads (even into the local coves) are surprisingly good. We had no problems with parking at this time of year, though it can be a different story in peak season.
Thankyou Roger for your hospitality and Nicola for effective communications

Dear David and Kim
Thank you so much for your lovely review of The Annex, we are so pleased that you had a lovely time and that you enjoyed the area with all it has to offer.
We would love to welcome you again so please do not hesitate to contact us.
With kind regards
Nicola and Roger
Everything you need!
We spend a week in this nice and comfortable house with sea view. It offers everything you need. Roger was very helpfull but he also respected our privacy. The only 'difficult' thing in my opinion is the steep access road, but then again: you can also park your car in the street just down the house.
We visited little ancient villages (Pals, Peratallada...), we walked a few coastal paths and spend a whole day on 'Cap de Creus', a beautiful natural park.
There is more to see in this region, I know... We'll have to come back!
We had a great time in Begur. The host Roger, the house and the surrounding area, everything was perfect!
Thank you so much for your wonderful review and we are so glad you enjoyed your stay with us.
Please do come back again as we would love to have you.
