A SPLENDID XVIII CENTURY ANTIQUE HOUSE WITH GARDEN, SWIMNING POOL & PORCH

Pals House Rental Photos and Description

3 Double Bedrooms House to sleep up 8 in Costa Brava, at 5 km from the beaches

A splendid old town house with 211 square meters of living space and 100 square meters of fantastic garden with a swimming pool and porch.

The house has been completely refurbished mixing the XVIII century antique house with XXI century avant-garde architecture. Fantastic location in the centre of the medieval town of Pals (Girona).

The house has a very nice living room with a fire place. The place is decorated with a mixture of Antique and contemporary furnishings to offer all the commodities. The house is equipped with a WIFI connection.

If you’re a big group or family we can also rent you the house beside. The house belongs to a complex of 2 houses. It has the same characteristics. The 2 houses may accommodate up to 16-18 guests.

The houses are sharing only the car park (2 vehicles each house).

Register Number: HUTG001745 / HUTG001746

SURROUNDING AREA: 'Can Caranta' is situated on the Medieval town of Pals. All around the town centre you can see splendid Gothic buildings, like the present-day museum of submarine archaeology Ca La Pruna, a fortified mansion from the 15th-16th century. It also holds a permanent exhibition of wines and cavas of Catalonia, a room offering temporary exhibitions of painters and sculptors.

In the town of Figueres (at 40Km) you will find Salvador’s Dali Museum. At 10 Km is La Bisbal d'Empordà famous for its ceramics. Close by are the Roman ruins at Ullestret, and many other historic medieval villages. Girona - capital of the province, with its Roman and Arabic history which can be seen in the old part of the city, also has a modern side, with great shopping, restaurants and night clubs (a 35 minutes drive).

ACTIVITIES / LEISURE: One of the most characteristic pictures of the coastline is the wide-open 3.5 kilometre long Pals beach with the Medes Islands in the background. Its special topography makes it the ideal spot to practice all types of water sports like windsurfing. Or if you prefer enjoying the surrounding secluded beaches of: Sa Riera, Sa Tuna, Aiguablava, Calella de Palafrugell or Llafranc (10minutes by car). Small sandy bays with rocky headlands, pine trees and clean water.

Only a few kilometres from Pals, in the town of L’Estartit, is the Medes Islands Marine Reserve, an archipelago formed by seven small islands that are admired the world over by people who practise underwater sports. A perfect place to practise: scuba diving, sea watching, snorkelling... and you don’t need to be an expert, because you will find professionals who will guide you and show you the most marvellous places in this privileged sea bed.

What a lovely place --- we had a wonderful time!

  • 5 of 5
We were two families vacationing together (total: 5 adults, 3 kids under age 5). This location was perfect, for grownups and kids alike.
Very nice house in the most beautiful region of the Costa Brava without mass tourism. Relaxingpool and garden Inside the house it is very spacey and there is everything you need.. Its location was perfect for exploring this beautiful area of Catalonia. We really enjoyed exploring the immediate countryside, there are several beautifully preserved medieval villages within easy cycling distance.
The beds were comfy and the bed linen and towels of a good quality. The house was clean and well presented. The kitchen facilities are excellent and all 8 of us really could sit in comfort and enjoy our meals in the pleasant dining area. The glasses, crockery and cutlery were all more than adequate. (We didn't use the BBQ or eat in the garden so I can't comment on this experience.)
The village is full of restaurants so there is no need to cook if you don't want to and no need to drive in the evenings. We tried 3 restaurants and they were all good.
The last day we did part of the 'Cami de Ronda', an ancient smugglers path along the stunning coastal scenery of the Costa Brava. The section we did, between the beach at Pals and SaRiera is beautiful, with stunning virgin coves along the way. The Costa Brava region of Spain is a "must see" for anyone who loves travel.
We are hoping to come back as we didn't have enough time to see it all!. Thank you for all your help in making it a magical week for us all, we enjoyed our stay immensely!
Thanks again Enric, it was great!!!

not quite as described

  • 2 of 5
We stayed at the properly for a week (joined other family members who had booked it for 2 weeks). A lovely house but several things were not quite as described....only 2 sun loungers so had to take turns between the 7 of us! Poor WIFi connection so spent several days unconnected. Only one room had a fan so we asked for another one which turned up 2 days later covered in dust. Bedside lamp broken/no bulb. We didn't meet owner but Rosa, who managed it, didn't speak any English so communication could be difficult for people who speak no Spanish. Last annoying thing was that the pillows are very mean and bed sheets could have done with an update. Sorry but this property does not quite match it's description.

Owner's Response: I’m really sorry to hear that your stay wasn’t as pleasant us expected. Our aim is to provide you a wonderful stay although some problems may occur. But we always take a serious compromiso to fix it as soon as possible. For instance, wifi provider. If there is a failure on service we need to know it straight away to claim the company to repair it.

Is true that we have 2 sun beds (as shown on pictures) but to fit one for each guest would be a problem to move around.

Thanks for pointing out the lack of fan in one bedroom. For next summer will provide directly one fan for each bedroom.

It's true that Rosa doesn't speak very good english but you always could reach me to sort out any doubt or problem.

Regards.

Enric.

Beautiful stay at Can Caranta, Pals!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Can Caranta, Aurora's House, for two weeks in June 2013.
My husband, myself and our little 11 week old daughter had the most amazing stay in a stunning villa in the middle of the beautiful medieval village of Pals.

The villa is so nice that some days we decided not to go out and simply enjoyed the house, the lovely pool and terrace. The house is exactly as described on the images, very clean, has a well equipped kitchen and stunning bathrooms. The inside of the house (downstairs) stays cool even when it gets very warm outside which is nice and refreshing.
The garden and pool are serviced regularly.

The house is located in the old medieval village of Pals just outside the old town walls. The village has small fruit and vegetable shops, convenience stores, etc and (very important!) a little store that sells delicious homemade artisan ice-cream. Take a stroll through the old village, it's worth it, especially before the shops open early in the morning.

Supermarkets can be found in villages / towns nearby.

We discovered a few small beaches along the coast that were not too touristy and enjoyed spending hours by the beach. The coastal walks are gorgeous and there are plenty of them.

It would be advisable to come by car / rent a car to be able to explore the lovely area. A parking space is available on the property.

We will definitely come back!

Dias de descanso en CAN CARANTA, PALS

  • 5 of 5
Vi la casa y me quede prendada de ella.... No teníamos claro donde pasar las vacaciones pero no dude cuando entré en Homeaway y vi CAN CARANTA.
Fue como estar en casa, muy acogedora, cálida y confortable. No le falta detalle para pasar unos días de descanso. La cocina es muy espaciosa y con toda clase de comodidades. Las habitaciones grandes y cómodas igual que el resto de la casa.
Teniamos Wifi en toda la casa.
Tenemos que agradecer a Enric y Rosa su amabilidad desde el momento en que nos pusimos en contacto con ellos.
Todo y que han sido unos días muy fríos de febrero, en la casa no se notaba ya que tienen muy buena calefacción.
La visión nocturna de la piscina, era muy relajante, con el cambio de colores. En verano debe ser fantástico poder bañarse en ella.
La casa esta situada muy cerca de centro de Pals, (precioso pueblo medieval) pero lo suficientemente alejada para estar tranquilo, sin ruidos. También esta cerca de hermosas playas y lugares de interés.
Muy cerca de la casa hay una carnicería/charcutería/quesería/ donde se puede encontrar casi de todo, panadería, farmacia, colmados pequeños y prensa y a unos dos kilómetros un súper grande, también restaurantes. La gente del pueblo emana amabilidad lo que sigue haciendo muy cómoda la estancia en Pals.
Enric, muchas gracias por facilitarnos la paellera.... nos salió una paella de "categoría".
Recomendamos sin ninguna duda la estancia en CAN CARANTA. Queriamos descansar y lo hemos conseguido. Muchas gracias por haberlo hecho posible.

Perfect holidays!

  • 5 of 5
It's like being at home! The house is quiet, spacious, very clean, comfortable, with free wi-fi and a lovely pool. The kitchen is huge and very well equipped. It is located near the center of Pals, with supermarkets, ATMs, restaurants, butchers, pharmacies, bakeries, and everything necessary for a good stay. It is a small town, but very welcoming. In this area you can visit enchanting towns and fantàstic beaches on the Costa Brava.

Pals organises a large number of markets, festivities, fairs, open air-cinema and concerts, and at Christmas it stages a Living Nativity in the attractive settings offered by its old town. The hills of the Gavarres, (10 minutes drive) are well known for walking and mountain biking.
