Begur seems to have survived the boom years better than most former pretty villages. Could this be in part due to the winter weather? Looks like a good place for a holiday, in the summer 🙂 Even South of Spain can be cold and miserable in winter.
Gaucín, the second village is also pretty. We had a “campo” phase and had a house on the fringes of the village. Wasn’t for me, too far from the coast, ok. for a holiday. (the toothless illiterate neighbour was a factor too 😆 ) Like the rest of the “white villages” in Andalucía it has it’s fair share of Brits. File it away with Cómpeta, frigiliana, Mijas etc. nice for a holiday but not to live…unless you like the ex-pat scene.
