Villa Santa Anna embodies all that is compelling about this verdant, rugged coastline. Nestling grandly into its hillside surroundings on the select residential neighbourhood of Casa de Campo, it is a delightful residence offering sweeping views over lush pine-clad hillsides to the cerulean waters of the Mediterranean beyond.

Extending over two floors, this beautifully presented home exudes comfort and quality with its tastefully chosen furnishings and décor creating a pleasing mix of contemporary and more traditional styles.  The interior layout offers an abundance of light and space to provide a welcome level of intimacy for large groups of family and friends.

As we venture outdoors the theme continues within spacious grounds of undulating lawns adorned with lush shrubbery and mature trees of pine, cork oak, olive and fig.  Bougainvillea, trumpet vine and rosemary frame sea-facing terraces, an abundance of secluded shady corners can be found and appreciated, but the focal point of the holiday will undoubtedly be the pool area.  Flanked by a capacious sun terrace and complimented by a superb covered barbecue area, this is the perfect spot in which to relax during the day or enjoy candlelit meals in the evening.

Just 2.2km away the market town of Palafrugell offers all amenities and a good selection of restaurants whilst a short drive reveals many spectacular beaches including the iconic sandy coves of Aigua Blava and a host of medieval towns and villages all worth exploring. What better place to explore them from than the gorgeous Villa Santa Anna!

Great Things to Do Near Villa Santa Anna

Take in the views!

Gaze out beyond the pool to the open sea beyond and absorb the subtle change of light throughout the day and enjoy the sight of the cruise ships gliding silently across the horizon at night.

Go ride a horse!

Hipica Begur (tel 619 23 60 73) also offer night excursions, carriage rides and for those who do not wish to take to horseback, Kart Cross excursions can be taken from here.

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.

Drive up through the pine trees to the 15th century hermitage and lighthouse of Sant Sebastià

which sits above the delightful, majestic bay of Llafranc and enjoy the breathtaking views out across the Mediterranean.

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.

Visit the fabulous city of Girona for the day,

taking in the beautifully restored Jewish Quarter, the Arab Baths, the cathedral, its museums and the many shops. Why not pay a visit to Cacao Sampaka, C/Santa Clara, 45 to indulge in the finest products using chocolate – cakes, drinks, spreads, ice creams to name a few!

Catch the train and visit Barcelona for the day.

There is so much to see and do in this vibrant city. Take the open topped tour bus and hop on and off at the different sights. After a lunch of delicious tapas save some energy for shopping in the elegant shops.

Visit the spectacular Greek and Roman settlement of Empuries.

Enjoy a lunch of fresh anchovies from L’Escala – a local speciality. On the way back, visit the pre-roman Iberian settlement of Ullastret and see how life was 2,500 years ago compared to today’s world!

If you are up for a challenge, have a go at kitesurfing – a new sport where a small kite is attached to a surfboard allowing spectacular pirouettes and high speeds.

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.

After lunch visit the fascinating farm museum in the tiny village of Palau Sator

Walk amongst all the different exotic Mediterranean flora and fauna

at the Botanical Gardens of Cap Roig where you get magnificent panoramic views of the coastline that stretches from Calella to the cliffs of Cap Roig.

Peratallada

the name of this delightful village is derived from ‘pedra tallada’, meaning carved stone. The moat which encircles parts of this fortified medieval settlement provides the stone from which most of the ancient buildings are constructed. As you stroll around, take note of the many properties which have been lovingly restored to their former glory.

The Empordá Marshes National Park

is nearby and is the home of many interesting species of plants and animals and a haven for migrating birds. These marshes are all that remain of the old lakes which were drained in the 18th and 19th centuries to make way for crops and cattle. They are situated in the bay of Roses between Castelló and Sant Pere Pescador. Hide in one of the camouflaged cabins and count the numerous species of birds.

Visit the Sunday morning Market at Palafrugell

and soak up the atmosphere with a drink in the main square. Back at the villa, prepare a delicious 'al fresco' lunch of the fresh produce you have purchased and then enjoy a welcome siesta by the pool!

For keen walkers,

drive to Begur and park and then take the GR92, the Cami Vell de Sa Tuna which will take you the 2.3 kms to this small cove. Take your swimming things and enjoy a refreshing dip in the Mediterranean, a good lunch and head back to Begur.
