The old town of
Begur is found high on a hilltop, presiding over the surrounding
Catalonian countryside, offering her visitors fantastic views,
interesting cobbled streets and narrow tree lined roads to explore.
The central square is an ideal resting place to sit and enjoy the
Catalonian way of life over a glass of the excellent local wine,
made from grapes grown in the nearby hills. The buildings in the
village are beautifully restored and
