Luxury four bedroom villa nestled into the mountainside overlooking the bay of Sa Tuna. It has extensive terraced gardens and a private pool and BBQ.
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 house was in excellent condition and was peaceful. It was large and spacious and certainly large enough for eight, with a number of different terraces and a well-kept garden. The bedrooms were nicely furnished and the bathrooms appeared modern and very clean. Sea view was distant and small. The urbanisation was not within walking distance of beach, bars, restaurants,shops and the house was hard to find if you arrive after 7PM when the local agents close. The steep driveway is not for the nervous.
A wonderful area for a summer holiday!

\we have had a delightful week. The villa has proved to be an excellent base from which to explore the Costa Brava. Behind the busy coast is a fascinating insight into the real Spain. The pool was a godsend and the garden a cool oasis.

Well we rent every year mainly in France but elsewhere also, and this has been by far the most beautiful house. It felt so much more than a rental and we feel priviledged to have spent a week here. We were particuary sensitive to the paning as whoever conceived it knew what they were doing. We have tried to respect what we have used. Your property managers seem efficient and we found the house clean.

We really enjoyed our stay here. Every room was great. We loved the fact that we could use the BBQ next to the pool using rosemary from the garden. Sa Tuna is a very nice beach. Begur is a pretty city. Altogether wwe had a lovely week.
What a wonderful place. The view is fabulous and the house is beautiful. I loved the Spanish language and used this week to learn some words. Us children enjoyed the pool. A - aged 16.
I loved the villa especially the swimming pool. My favourite beach was Aiguablava. The snorkeling there is really good. The thought of going back to Holland makes me sad..even the rain was better here than in Holland!

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.
