Begur I Villa rentals Spain

Beautiful Begur and villa rentals Spain

Begur entices people with its beautiful location on the Mediterranean Sea approximately halfway between Barcelona and the Spanish-French border. The town’s old medieval castle crowns the top of a mountain and keeps a beautiful vigil over the colourful Moorish and Spanish architecture lining the narrow and winding streets. Neoclassical mansions sit cheek to cheek with fishing huts and villas in Spain, painting a wonderfully picturesque image. Some of these houses are even said to have housed pirates in the past, according to the locals of Begur. This area keeps the imagination alive, regardless of age, making it perfect for family holidays.
