The communication during booking & whilst at the villa was very good & efficient. The location was as expected as we were aware that we needed a car to get around, but be warned it really is up some very steep hills. The villa appeared as in the pictures. We booked the villa as a party of 8 & yet there were only 4 sun loungers & 6 chairs around the outside table. There were nails protruding around the far side of the decking around the pool & the basketball ring & dart board had no ball or darts to use. There were no bath mats, the bed sheets barely covered the beds, only 1 flat pillow per person, & we had to buy our own tea towels. All of these minor things aside, we had a comfortable & enjoyable stay.

Loved the pool, house etc Had thought it was walking distance from sa tuna but actually location is further south than pin on advert shows meaning the need to drive to the beach. The region is fantastic...3 weeks next time!

The house is in perfect condition. It is ideal to spend a few days on vacation with your pool and the beach at 15 minutes. Site to leave 3 or 4 cars new materials. They leave towels. The only thing to highlight bad is that the first day we failed a little electricity but they repaired immediately. I would also highlight that there is a lack of detergent for the dishes or to leave a couple of tablets for the dishwasher.

Amazing family home on the top of the hills of Begur. Very complete home with fully equipped kitchen including basic cooking ingredients as herbs and olive oil, a dedicated washing area with washing machine ánd dryer. Home is in a very quiet area and very well secured with electric blinders and gated garden. Check-in with Interhome was quick and efficient. If any drawback, I would say the check-out time could be later (12.00 instead of 10.00) to allow for a more comfortable checkout. Other than that, would recommend without any doubt!

The villa is very pretty. We regret not having seen anyone from the agency to guide us. We were delivering a little to ourselves. We had a pleasant stay.

Travel guide

Villas in the Costa Brava

The Costa Brava, which translates to 'rugged coast' in Spanish, is the northernmost and arguably the most beautiful of the Costas, situated in northeastern Spain in the province of Girona. Known for its pristine Mediterranean beaches, Michelin star cuisine and historic architecture, this coastal paradise is the perfect package when it comes to sunny escapes. Boasting a 60km stretch of glorious fine sand and shallow waters, this diverse region reaches all the way from the seaside town of Blanes to the French border.

The Costa Brava is famous for its crystal-clear Blue Flag beaches, with plenty of smaller fishing towns where families can enjoy a quieter side of Spain. Its picture-perfect landscape is a haven for nature lovers and adventure seekers who come to explore the many scenic hiking and cycling trails, rural terrain and picturesque bays and coves. The region's impressive natural beauty has even inspired the likes of Dalí, Miró and Picasso, who leave behind a legacy of world-famous surrealist art. A foody's paradise, there are over 2,500 restaurants in the Costa Brava's Girona province and a wine making history spanning over 2,500 years. Taste the delights of the catch of the day with fresh Catalan seafood in abundance, as well as an international cuisine. Explore the local vineyards with a wine tasting tour and discover a tradition that has been perfected over two millenia.

For nature lovers, there are plenty of natural parks to explore, from the exotic botanical gardens of Jardi Botanic de Cap Roig, to Cap de Creus National Park with its protected species of wildlife. Golfers will be in their element, as the Costa Brava is home to some of Spain's most famous 18-hole courses.

Whether you're a couple, family, or a big group of friends, our Clickstay rentals put you at the heart of it all.
