Just a short drive away are the dazzling beaches of the Costa Brava, where you can laze on golden sand and swim and snorkel in clear turquoise waters. We’ve owned apartments and villas in Begur for years and in our eyes it’s one of the most magical towns in the region!

To the north of Begur is the quintessentially Spanish Sa Riera, a former fishing village blessed with fine golden sand. Chill out on the beach or take in the stunning views from one of the excellent seafront restaurants.

Not into coastal walks? Begur is brimming with history and culture. If you’re here in July or August check out the town’s music festival, which showcases pop, jazz and classical to an exuberant international crowd.  

If history’s more your style, spend some time exploring Begur’s Colonial houses, which include Can Sora – a Cuban-style mansion full of beautiful frescoes, and Casa Bonaventura Caner Bataller – a whimsical neoclassical gem.

Begur isn’t all sun, sea and sightseeing. You can get some serious shopping done here, too, whether you’re looking for high street bargains or traditional trinkets. 

To sample authentic Catalan shopping culture, head to the elegant streets of Old Town Palamos. You’ll find quaint boutiques selling local crafts, clothing and gourmet gifts, as well as the bustling Municipal Market. What should you look out for? Traditional woven baskets are a safe bet, as are foodie gifts such as anchovies packed in oil. 

Just a stone’s throw from your Begur villa is Centre Commercial Cavallers. Hop on the bus and spend the afternoon browsing discount designer gear and electronics. To stock up on famous Catalan pottery head to La Bisbal Ceramics. It houses bespoke, eye-catching works, crafted by some of the leading ceramic artists in Catalonia.

Seafood is a must around these parts, with restaurants serving fish pulled fresh from the sea that morning. The local lobster is renowned, and prawns, sea bream and seafood paella regularly appear on restaurant menus. 

Should you want to dress up and dine out in style, head to Girona, where you’ll find a clutch of fine-dining restaurants, including several with Michelin stars. 

Rather stay in and self-cater at your villa in Begur? Make sure to visit the Municipal Market in Palamos, where you can pick up wonderfully fresh meat, fish and vegetables, not to mention a mouthwatering selection of sweet pastries.
