At Villa Nuria you are perfectly positioned to explore the delightful coves and fishing villages dotted along this spectacular coastline such as Aigua Blava (5.6km), Sa Riera (5.5km), Sa Tuna (8km) and no holiday would be complete without an evening stroll around the enchanting ancient town of Begur (2.5km) with its floodlit castle, chic boutiques, tapas bars and fine restaurants, the perfect place to sample the gastronomy of Catalunya and round off a magical holiday.

Great Things to Do Near Villa Nuria

Drive to Begur and climb up to the castle

from where there are far reaching views. The most noteworthy are those towards the Medes Islands, long ago a refuge for pirates and smugglers, although today they are famous as a marine nature reserve.

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.

Visit the Sunday morning Market at Palafrugell

and soak up the atmosphere with a drink in the main square. Later visit the magnificent wine store of Jordi Grau and enjoy a glass of wine with a “tapa”.

The golden sandy beach of Aigua Blava

is a very short drive away. Justifiably awarded a coveted Blue Flag, this beach boasts the finest and softest sand in the immediate area. Relax in the restaurant overlooking the bay and enjoy the freshest of grilled fish, accompanied by a glass of chilled white wine.

Walk 7 kms of the GR92

From Begur to the inland medieval village of Pals, which has delightful views up and down the coast. There are some great restaurants in which to enjoy some sustenance before the walk back!

For snorkelling enthusiasts

The Jews lived here for over 600 years before they were forced out in the 15th Century by the Spanish Monarchy.
