Sa Riera, Catalunya

Stunning Architect Designed House with views of the Mediterranean Sea

About our home

This is our holiday home on the best part of the Costa Brava. Non simultaneous house exchange is possible. You can look forward to magnificent scenery and nearby stunning sandy beaches, one of which you can walk to in 20 minutes. Begur is 5 minutes drive from the villa, and is a stylish hilltop town with historic buildings, a cafe culture and wonderful restaurants. Within easy reach of Barcelona, Gerona, skiing in the Pyrenees, the South of France, championship golf courses, historic medieval villages, an ancient Roman and Greek town on the sea, and Dali museums.
When not using our villa we rent it as well as exchange. For that reason it is maintained all year round by our local representative who can prepare for your stay including a welcome pack of groceries, meet you on arrival, show you around and how things work, provide weekly cleaning, fresh linen and make beds, and generally ensure your stay is a happy one. They know the area, speak English and can tell you about the many things to do and places to go.

For long haul we prefer to travel during the UK School holidays. We now have sufficient swaps to Sydney in the bank for 2014/15. So our current focus is elsewhere either in Europe or halfway between UK and Sydney. A non simultaneous swap is possible and quite likely easier to organise for us.

If you House Swap or Rent then cleaning and linen is included without charge. Because of the house size Points swaps are subject to a 225 euro cleaning charge at the end of your stay and 15 euro per person per week or part of a week for linen, payable to our local agent on arrival. At present we have several thousand swap points so points swaps are not being accept until we have spent them. Sorry.
