Lovely home; perfect location!
We thoroughly enjoyed 5 nights in this exceptional property! Three couples each had their own large bedroom and bathroom with lots of community space. We loved cooking together in the kitchen and eating outdoors or in. Well maintained and convenient to all of the Costa Brava. Pals itself is a beautiful town with all conveniences nearby.
What a beautiful house! Spspacious, luxurious, exquisitely renovated.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The house was so spacious that even with six couples and a child there was no crowding! Beautiful pool, fine quality renovation. And Pals was delightful.
Lovely house and ideal location
We had a lovely holiday in Pals, the house Can Caranta was super with everything we needed. The best thing though, was the location with local shops on the doorstep and great restaurants and cafes within walking distance. The old town is charming and there are many interesting places to visit within a short drive. Most enjoyable.

Can Caranta is a marvelous place to live, pretty comfortable, perfect decoration, very close from everywhere and so nice. The beaches around are very beautiful and if you go like us with our children, they will enjoy so much in the swimming pool and feel secure as if they where at home. We recommend it for sure!
