Escape to Serenity on the Catalonian Coastline
28th August – 2nd September 2018
Join our summer retreat to Begur on the Catalonian Coast with stunning views, beautiful Villa, spacious gardens and salt water pool.
The Villa has been designed by Catalan architects Ignasi Font and Ana Jané to address multiple challenges…
… a language of simple cubic geometry, paired with warm materials such as wood, terracotta and stone walls, in yellow sand tones.
…a sequence of interior and exterior areas which optimise –in a climate such as this- light penetration, natural cooling and sea vistas.
… a spacious garden celebrating the contours of the rocky Costa Brava landscape.
You accommodation is situated 1,5 km away from the iconic town of Begur. Its medieval castle overlooks the town with amazing views of the Begur Massif and coastline washed by the Mediterranean Sea.
The historical centre has kept its numerous colonial-style houses, charming streets and alleys testament to a long and intense history in which pirates, sailors, coral gatherers, fishermen and wealthy emigrants returned from overseas.
Begur is a lively Catalan village all year round and has a great variety of restaurants.
The Begur coast enjoys a shoreline of unparalleled beauty, whose cliffs, pines, crystal waters and its abrupt coastline, make this area one of the most characteristic of the Costa Brava. Begur has eight coves and beaches, located to the North, East and South of the town, with different characters and completely different kinds of natural beauty. One of them is Aiguablava where the villa is located.
If you like hiking like us, there are a number of walking trails to enjoy forest walks or the Begur coastline with amazing views over the cliffs and coves. Horse riding on the long fine golden beach of Palsis is another very good alternative.
Every room is equipped with a private bathroom and high quality natural sleeping comfort.
Mattresses are made of organic latex and Pyrenees sheep wool. Organic cotton bed sheets and linen waffle towels are produced in the South of Spain.
All accommodation has been designed as efficiently as possible to create a quality indoor environment for your well-being: timber structure, green roofs and insulated cabling to obtain an optimal sound, thermal and electro magnetic protection.
Gardens & Pool
The water-wise gardens draws inspiration from Olivier Filippi’s dry gardening plants and practices.
The green roofs and the Mediterranean garden provide a beautiful and original palette of texture, fragrance, colour and structure – think lavender, rosemary, olive trees and ornamental grasses.
The ideal climate offers a great outdoor lifestyle to cater for all tastes: lounging by the saltwater pool, napping under the shade of the pine tree, lying in a hammock or relaxing on the sofa under the pergola.
Against the backdrop of a blue sky, in refreshing sea breeze and pleasant scent of Mediterranean plants just leave behind the stresses of the world.
The studio is a spacious and beautiful bubble of serenity where you can mentally and physically let go and renew yourself.
Its surface of a hundred square meters entirely benefits from natural shaded light and open sea view across a fully glazed facade. It has also been built in the golden ratio proportions with a double-pitched roof and timber structure. It is ultimately hard to decide which design feature is the most optimal for wellbeing!
Below this sanctuary, you will find a fifty square meters break room and terrace to enjoy a cup of tea, read or work in a relaxing atmosphere. And not far away… the massage room is waiting for you… out of direct sunlight…shhh…
Recommend flights direct from Birmingham Airport to Barcelona with transfers to the Villa approximately 1 hour 10 minutes.
