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.

Lovely home; perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Lovely house and ideal location

  • 4 of 5

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.

Summer holidays with friends

  • 5 of 5

Maison tres fonctionnelle, chaleureuse et agreable idealement située dans le ravissant village de Pals.

1h de Barcelone, 30 mn de Girone et 15 mn de la magnifique plage de Callela de Palafrugell.

Nombreux golfs aux alentours.

Nous recommandons vivement cette maison.

Suggestions : un parasol pour la terrasse et la clim dans toute la maison (actuellement uniquement dans une chambre)

Merci a Enric pour sa disponibilité et sa gentillesse et Maria pour ses conseils.

The perfect place

  • 5 of 5

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!
