Begur, Girona, Spain | Map

The ultimate holiday for sunseekers, yogis and beach bums

Nourish yourself from the inside out and soak up the last of the summer rays to sustain you through the change of seasons. This spectacular villa, nestled above the scenic cove of Aigua Blava on the North Eastern coast of Spain, is known for it’s year-round mild and sunny climate.

Villa Piblau has been purpose built by Carmen (a French/Spanish Yoga instructor) as a family project to provide everything one might want on a  relaxing yoga holiday,  close to the beach, in a quiet and serene scenic spot, surrounded by walking trails with amazing views over the cliffs and coves, not far from the chic shops and friendly cafes of Begur.

Because of the ideal climate, Villa PiBlau 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.

The Eco Villa and Accommodation have been designed 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 with low impact on the environement.

Every bedroom is equipped with a private bathroom and high quality natural 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.

The hundred square meter Yoga Shala  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.

Healthy Vegetarian meals are plentiful, freshly cooked, and served buffet style. Organic grown locally sourced produce is favoured, as well as  homemade jams, bread and cakes.On sunny days, large communal tables are set under the pergola or in the interior dining room.

 

The villa is 1.5km away from the iconic town of Begur,  a lively Catalan village with a great selection of restaurants and shops, and  it’s Medieval castle perched above, looking out over the Massif Begur and coastline.

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 VILLA PI BLAU is located.

If you like hiking , 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.

Other nearby medieval villages are also worth a visit: Pals, Peratallada or the former fisherman’s town of “Calella de Palafrugell”.

We also highly recommend the Salvador Dali route, the best way to discover the great work of this famous 20th century artist. In Figueras, you will find the Dali museum. And in Port lligat, a small town close to Cadaques you can visit his home.
