The beach at Aiguafreda is only a few hundred yards walk away, and there are stunning coastal walks round the coves to Cap Sa Sal and Sa Tuna. The medieval village of Begur are also only a short drive away.
They may be simple but they wouldn’t look out of place in Coast magazine – think muted, Farrow & Ball-style pale greys and beiges, artfully distressed furniture and terracotta tiled floors. All the rooms look out over the garden.
There’s a small patio terrace outside the rooms, with plans to build a larger one, as well as the restaurant.
Eating and drinking
There’s a buffet breakfast with fresh fruit, yoghurts and croissants, which you can eat outdoors in the summer in the lovely, shady gravelled walled garden or indoors in the downstairs dining room in winter. For lunch or dinner, you’ve got one of the best restaurants in the area no further than a short flight of stairs from your room. See [node:171372] for separate review.
Owner Oscar used to work in advertising in Barcelona and speaks perfect English. He and his staff are super-friendly and will do their best to help out with anything you need. (For example, he lent us a torch at night when we wanted to make the short walk along the coast to the [node:172198] for a drink.)
