Interior facilities: Casa Abel is a new house built and complete equipped in 2008. The swimming pool, the ping pong area, the garden and patio gives us the welcoming on the entrance. Then we can go inside the house straight to the hall or through the kitchen. The kitchen built in natural wood is fully equipped and includes a fire place. There is breakfast table on the kitchen, another big table outside in front of the swimming pool for enjoying the summer breakfast and a third table in the dinning room.

There is also two bathrooms.
Exterior facilities: Private swimming pool of 4 x 8 meters.
Mediterranean garden with grass, flowers and Mediterranean trees.
Orchard with typical products such us tomatoes, lettuce.
We enjoyed our week here, even early in the season the kids were in the pool every day. Having a proper kitchen is important to us and this had all we needed plus a very good sized lounge diner and plenty of outside space.
It was very clean and everything was in excellent condition. As good as it looks in the photos. We didn't make use of the air con, WiFi or washing machine but I'm sure others will.
It is well located only a short walk, under 10 mins, from a good beach and all the seafront restaurants, etc. Supermarket, cafes, a few other shops and buses are much closer.
Can Picafort had plenty to offer us but had we stayed much more than a week then we would have ventured further afield.
Pretty good place to stay but not the best resort. It's a house where you have the ground floor. There are then 2 floors above. One implication of this is that they look out over the pool area & garden.
House itself is fantastic - large, AC in all rooms, well equipped. The TV is disappointing. There's a Sky box but it's connection is poor so we could only get 2 English channels. WiFi is not fast and kept dropping signal, but is OK.
The pool is quite small (about 6m x 4m) and was surprisingly cold. It also was a little dirty - needs more filtering.
One downside to be aware of is that the orientation of the pool/garden,Evans that it's pretty much shaded by 4pm, and sun gone completely by 6pm. So rather disappointingly after a day out, a dip in the pool was not appealing as the garden by then was in shade. There is though plenty of garden furniture, a BBQ, and the table tennis is fantastic.
We stayed here as a family of 3. We arrive late at night after a delayed flight and a long cue for the hire car! Tolo was great, and called us when we hadn't shown up yet. We completely understood him leaving the keys in a safe and was fine for us to call when we finally arrived.
The villa is amongst the locals and was a bit tricky to find in the dark, but we finally made it! Opening the door was amazing as it was huge and seemed like a maze! The rooms are great sizes and the pool area was brilliant! Even though the pool was a bit chilly we went in a few days!
In the day the villa was just as impressive! TV, WIFI and a fab kitchen with everything you could need. We had a slight hiccup with the WIFI but it was sorted by the time we were back to the villa the same day. Great service!
The promenade was a 5/10 stroll down a slight incline. But nothing major. The area was lovely. The promenade and beach were great! we Hired a car and travelled bit, and went half hour down to the safari zoo which was defiantly worth a trip! Best zoo abroad I have been too! We would defiantly recommend to friends and family! on the whole, a fabulous holiday! Thank you!
The house is perfect for 6 people but we were only 3 (2 adults and 1 teen of 16). The pool is fantastic, the ping pong table also but bring your own rackets! The BBQ is great ! There is airco in all the rooms but only 1 remote control for all so not very convenient if you need to switch it off/on in the middle of the night and it's in another room. The owner lives next door and was very kind. She went to buy all the things we were missing and even a nice coffee machine ! There are no French channels on the TV which for us was a problem but there are plenty of German and English channels. There is a promenade along the beach with shops, bars and restaurants. It is very lively. The beach is white sand, no rocks, for miles and miles. We always went to the beach with the kite/sailing school. You can rent a catamaran for 1 hour for 40 EUR. We had a very nice stay and plan to go back.
Just arrived back from Casa Abel. Tolo (who arranges the stay) was very helpful from booking to departure. Everything you could want in a holiday home was there. The DVD player did not work correctly during our stay and after overcoming a slight language barrier, a new DVD player was provided and even a small cash refund given as a goodwill gesture! Great value, great facility, great time.
The house is the ground floor of an appt block, with its own medium sized pool. The house is very clean, well decorated and tidy with 2 twin rooms with large wardrobes, a small hallway with a large bathroom and a cloakroom big enough for another wardrobe of clothing! There is a master bedroom suite with 2 large wardrobes and en-suite bathroom with walk in shower.
A 5 minute walk gets you to the main street which runs parallel with the beach which is another 5 mins walk. We had 2 x 11 year olds and 2 x 16 yr olds who all had a fab time. Play areas for younger children and for ours there were pedallos and paraglides. The two eldest are skate boarders and we chose this house as it is 50 yds from a very good skate/bmx park. Car hire is about £40 to £45 per day and petrol same as in England. Meals averaged around £10 to £15 per head inc 1 drink and usually ice cream. There is a Burger King for those of you who have 16 yr olds who know nothing better (one night only for us !!) and I would recommend opposite "San Remo" for good food and delicious, enormous ice cream treats.
Promenading along the sea front alongside the restaurants at night is very relaxing. Heading North towards Cala Pajada along the front takes you to a very quite bay area with good fish restaurants where little motorised scooters can be hired very cheaply.
Highly recommend a stay.
Das mediterran gestaltete, wunderschöne Haus ist einfach perfekt für uns gewesen! Alles war sehr gepflegt, sauber und genauso wie beschrieben. Am schönen Pool kann man von morgens bis abends entspannen und die Sonne genießen. Im Garten befinden sich Limetten- und Olivenbäume, ein Grill und eine Tischtennisplatte. Zum Supermarkt und zum Strand sind es nur wenige Minuten. Der einzige kleine Nachteil ist, dass sich direkt neben dem Anwesen eine Schule und ein Kindergarten befinden und es deshalb manchmal ein wenig lauter zugeht... Der Besitzer war sehr freundlich und die Kommunikation hat bestens geklappt. Vielen Dank für die tolle Woche!
