Furnished in a simple but comfortable style, this family home instantly welcomes with its split-level living room offering a cosy area of soft seating on a lower level and a designated space for dining just above.  Beamed ceilings and exposed pine provide a charming rustic feel whilst the two attractive bedrooms sit alongside a pretty shower room to the rear of the house.

Being conveniently situated just off the road that leads into Begur, Villa Carlita is not only a short distance (1.7km) from the charming hilltop town but it is also only 220m from the nearest supermarket, something that makes this an appealing choice for couples or small family groups seeking a holiday base within walking distance of shopping amenities.

Also close to hand are some of the most beautiful sandy coves and unspoilt fishing villages to be found along this spectacular coastline. The beautifully unspoilt sands of Platja Fonda are just 3.1km away, stunning Aigua Blava (3.8 km) is 10 minutes by car, pretty Tamariu (3.6 km) is easily reached via a back road that winds through pine woods whilst the nearby sandy bay of Pals offers a wide range of water sports.

A popular local restaurant is just 1.6 km from the house whilst Palafrugell offers a colourful Sunday market and excellent facilities just a 10 minute drive away.  In the evening, a wander around the cobbled streets of Begur’s fascinating old quarter is an ideal way to end the day. Here local families meet to chat over a ‘digestif” in the many pavement cafés and market stalls display jewellery, artwork and local crafts alongside a fine array of shops, tapas bars and restaurants.

As you wander around Begur

take special note of the houses of the 'Indianos', the design of which has been influenced by the young people of Begur who emigrated to the Americas, mainly in search of riches. Those who returned left their stamp on the architecture of the town - one such example overlooks the small car park area near the church.
