About Geoff Street
My wife Lesley and I have, with our children, been visiting this area since 1976. I am now retired and we enjoy visiting our villa several times a year. Our three sons are now grown up, each with families of their own and our current tally of grand children is five. It has been a pleasure over the years to have family holidays with visiting friends and relatives. The villa is so well suited to accommodate families with children. In recent years we have constructed a first floor bedroom, bathroom and terrace which provides wonderful views of the surrounding country and sea and have completed the refurbishment of the bathrooms and kitchen. We enjoy letting the villa and have many returning guests.
Geoff Street purchased this Villa in 1990
Why Geoff Street chose Begur
In 1989 we returned to this area of the Costa Brava after an absence of approximately 13 years and to our delight it had hardly changed with development limited to mainly low rise dwellings and improvements to the infrastructure. We made enquiries and the agent showed us the villa, which was nearing completion, we immediately fell in love with it. We have never regretted the move and the strict local planning laws have ensured sensible development maintaining the character and beauty of the region.
What makes this Villa unique
We are located on a long established private estate of approximately 70 properties. There is only one vehicle access and no through road, so the estate is very quiet. All of the properties are of individual design and the and mature gardens and generous distances between the villas ensures seclusion and privacy. The orientation of the property results in all day sunshine in the garden which has plenty of mature trees and shrubs so there is always a place to sit in the shade.

Un petit coin de paradis
Maison très agréable, fonctionnelle et mignonne. On se sent bien dedans. L’espace et la configuration de la maison permettent de séjourner à plusieurs sans problème. Très bon accueil de Valérie et un propriétaire charmant et réactif. Begur et son bord de mer avec le chemin de ronde sont superbes. C’est vraiment une tres belle région. Quand on y ajoute une belle maison comme celle-ci, on passe un merveilleux séjour. Merci encore !
Many thanks for your positive review, which is much appreciated.
The ability of the property to provide versatile accommodation and retain a good level of privacy, together with the beautiful location, is what attracted us in the first instance.
Many thanks again,
Merci beaucoup pour votre avis positif, qui est très apprécié. La capacité de la propriété à fournir un hébergement polyvalent et à conserver un bon niveau d'intimité, ainsi que le bel emplacement, sont ce qui nous a attirés en premier lieu. Merci encore,
With best wishes,
Mes amis et moi avons passé une agréable long weekend dans la propriété.
La villa est très propre, les pièces vastes et bien pensées.
Malgré un souci technique, le propriétaire a géré la situation rapidement et sans contraintes.
Je recommande vivement !
Muy recomendable! La casa es súper acogedora, limpia y muy bien equipada. No le falta detalle. Hemos pasado un grupo de 9 amigas la Semana Santa y nos hemos sentido muy cómodas. Todas las estancias son súper amplias.
El chalet está en una zona muy bonita y tranquila y a escasos 10 minutos del pueblo y la playa.
Valerie la anfitriona es encantadora y ha habida muy buena comunicación en todo momento. Muchas gracias por todo! Repetiremos!
Many thanks for your positive review, which is very much appreciated. We hope to have you as guests again.

Special interest holidays:
Road and off road cycling is very popular in the region. Designated route details are available at the villa and two mountain bikes are available for guests.
The nearest beach is Tamariu which is very pretty and secluded. For the energetic a cross country walk, with great views, will get you there in 30 min. By car down an unsurfaced road in 10 mins.
All of the following beaches are good with there own particular character and are accessible within a 15 min drive: Sa Riera, Sa Tuna,Aiguablava, Llafranc and Calella. These small resorts are not over developed and retain their individual charm. Palamos is a busy fishing port with a good beach.
A car is essential for your stay. Driving from the UK can be entirely on motorway from various channel ports. Sixteen hours is achievable but we prefer an overnight stop. Nearest airports are Girona (50 mins) and Barcelona (120 mins) and each are destinations for low cost airlines and have good car hire facilities.
Begur and Palafrugell are the nearest towns and each are a five minute drive. Within a driving time of 1hr you can explore the numerous ancient and historic towns and villages of the region.
Supermarkets, banks, cafes, restaurants, boutiques and pharmacies are all available in Begur and Palafrugell. They also have tourist offices. Palafrugall has a major market on Sunday mornings and a daily fruit, veg, meat and fish market (not Mondays). Nearby towns and villages have weekly markets, details can be obtained from the tourist office. Eating out is particularly good with a huge range of restaurants to suite every occasion and budget. We keep a box file at the villa with brochures and cards for restaurants and other attractions.
