Châteaux Carmel was the perfect place for our recent family vacation. We ranged in age from four to seventy, and there was something for everyone. There were coming-together spots, but plenty of room to enjoy a bit of privacy. The huge back patio was our favorite gathering place. It provided a pool, a hot tub that was never empty, a stone fireplace where the children roasted marshmallows for s’mores, and we grown-ups enjoyed a glass of wine while taking in the breathtaking views. Anthony met us on arrival and gave us a detailed tour so we knew how to use the special lighting and where to find everything we could possibly need. He was also available at all times for any questions that arose. We were sorry to see our special time at Châteaux Carmel end, but the memories will be with us forever.
