Begur is a lovely old medieval town, which has many good restaurants and bars, with many chic boutiques. The villa, Les Tres Oliveres, is in an area of great natural beauty with a large range of leisure pursuits including diving and golf. It is also very popular with walkers and ramblers throughout the year. The villa is on the Cami de Ronda coastal route and a quiet road leading to the marine reserve of Ses Negres (2 minutes walk) between the beaches of Aiguafreda (10 minutes walk) and Sa Riera (2.3km) and about 5km from Begur.
It has wonderful sea and countryside views and is fully furnished with many facilities. It consists of a kitchen, 2 living rooms, a sun room / dining room, 2 bathrooms, 3 bedrooms (one double and two twins - one of which has an en-suite wetroom and French doors opening on to the shaded outside dining area and sofa). The balcony is accessible from both the main living room and the sun room, both of which have great sea views. The shaded outside dining area has a BBQ and is just up from the private heated pool (8m x 4m).
Diving, Boating, Walking and Golf:
This area really is one of the best areas in Spain for Scuba Diving. We can put you in touch with Dive instructors who can provide 121 instruction or a try dive. They dive from Aiguafreda which is 2 minutes drive from the house. It's a great safe place to dive with loads to see. They can also arrange for you to dive at the Medas Islands.
The marine reserve at the end of the road is called Ses Negres, and is 2 minutes walk from the villa. It is excellent for snorkelling with lots of fish to see in very clear water, but as it is protected, scuba diving is not permitted in this specific location. Please ask us if you have any more questions about this.
If you want to go boating, we can put you in touch with a local who provides boat hire or another who can take you on a tour along the coast. You can moor up in coves which are only accessible from the sea.
The Costa Brava is wild and rugged area with tremendous views and scenery. It has great walks and 370km of marked paths which are maintained by the Baix Emporda Tourism Committee. The house is actually on the coastal path called Cami de Ronda
There are 9 golf courses in the area including 2 championship courses
