The apartments each have a double bedroom, a living room with a funky purple sofabed for 1-2, and characterful arched brick ceilings offset by plain white modern kitchens. Décor is austere yet elegant, with pale olive green walls, grey headboards, unpolished terracotta tiles and Scandi-style furniture. Crisp white cotton sheets add to the cool and calming ambiance.
The 2 ground-floor apartments are accessed directly from the communal walled garden and pool, making them ideal for families. The 2 top-floor apartments are lighter in feel, with white painted wooden ceilings, a breezy vibe and beautiful views across the surrounding fields.
Sleek, contemporary bathrooms have bathtubs with overhead showers, fluffy white cotton towels and fabulous Omnisens toiletries.

The apartments have full kitchens for whipping up light snacks and family suppers, and there are grocery stores in Begur (a short drive away). If you'd prefer to eat out, there are 3 restaurants in the village itself: Restaurant del Teatre (a gastronomic restaurant with a huge garden and chill-out bar, right next to the apartments); Restaurant Bocca (Mediterranean food and a big alfresco dining terrace), and Restaurant Rajoleria) (informal Catalan food).
SolBlanc in nearby Pals is a bike ride away; a typical Catalan farmhouse with a large garden and great local dishes. And there's a plethora of really fabulous restaurants, from rustic to Michelin star, within a short drive. We had excellent plates of grilled sepia, fried white anchovies and tortilla, washed down with a carafe of sangria, at the fabulous little Es Dofí fish restaurant in Tamariu. The chef could be seen walking back and forth between the kitchen and his fishing spot in the little bay just outside the restaurant, returning with a catch in his hand each time.
