Some people see Cap de Begur as the Spanish equivalent to Cap d’Antibes in the French Riviera but without the frenetic development. Cap de Begur is located north of Barcelona along the coast not far from the French border, 45 kilometres east of Girona airport and 140 kilometres from the airport in Barcelona. The town Begur itself is located away from the coast and is a very charming town with a pedestrian only city centre and narrow, winding streets. There is a medieval castle watching over the town and although the castell is little more than a ruin it is well worth a walk up to the top. The views are simply stunning! Should you decide to go looking for a property for sale in Cap de Begur you can choose to have a look in the charming village with views over the sea or look by the beaches. Another alternative is to explore the campo, outside the urban areas. The prices are lower there and it is more secluded. Perhaps you will find the property of your dreams for sale in Cap de Begur?

The climate is comfortable and not as hot as in the southern parts of the country. The annual average is 16 °C, and 25 °C in the summer. There are many lovely beaches you mustn’t miss. Sa Riera beach has managed to keep its character of a traditional fishing village with many charming older houses. Further to the east you will find La Cala de Sa Tuna, a lovely nature reserve with crystal clear waters and excellent facilities for visitors. The area surrounding Begur is undeveloped and offers great treks for walking and opportunities for different water sports. During the summer, the area fills up with tourists, and festivals and entertainment is plentiful. Why not take part in one of the traditional dances or sit at a table outside in the warm night and do some people watching.
