Eliseo.....dedicated more than 20 years working for multinational companies, and focused since 2004 on familiy real estate properties where our "flag" is Caru Apartments, that was set up in brand new building we constructed in 2007.
Pretty much customer focused ("I like to treat our customers as I would like to feel when I am customer too"), good language skills (english, french, italian, german (mittel), as well as spanish and catalan)
Also to remark all the features that Castelldefels provides itsef (less than 20 minutes from Barcelona city, 12 Km long white sand beach, good restaurants, sea activities, excellent temperature all year long, services available all year
Eliseo purchased this apartment in 2007
Modern building (built ended July 2007) with 9 apartments (six 2-bedroom and three 1-bedroom) fully dedicated to touristic apartments.
Apartments are ideally located:
- 400 meters (7-8 minutes walk) from 10 miles long white sandy beach
- 400 meters (7-8 minutes walk) from the village of Castelldefels (all sort services are available there)
- 12 miles away from Barcelona city (connection by bus and train available every half an hour..stations at less than 5 minutes walk from the apartments)
Quiet and residential area but high proximity to services and leisure activities (canyoning, horse riding, golf, sea activities, boat marina, tennis, etc, water skiing, etc).
The apartments are a short taxi ride from the airport which by the way cost about 25 euros. We had quite a late arrival time which the owner accommodated and the arrangements made for obtaining the keys worked great.
Everything was just as we expected from the website. Rosa came to see us the following morning & make sure we knew how to work everything & give us the low down on the area & which direction to walk for various shops etc. Rosa seemed to be nearly always on hand, spoke excellent English & always happy to help.
There is a wide choice of supermarkets locally but our wheely suitcase came in useful as a shopping trolley.
We cooked a few nights in the apartment & had all the equipment we needed. One night we ate at a restaurant down the road called La Mesa - very nice!!! The whole neighbourhood is just a pleasant peaceful haven after a busy day sightseeing in Barcelona. Being less than 10 minutes walk from the station & the T10 tickets meant in 30 minutes you were in the city for 1euro! The beach is about 10 minutes away & beautifully clean with lots of play areas, football & volleyball nets. There is also a play & nature area just 2 minutes away from the apartment.
The pool is quite small & as it is now November was rather cool, however, our kids were more than happy to rise to the challenge, spending an hour most days. No one else was crazy enough to be in there!
All in all, we had a wonderful stay & the apartment & area served us well.
We had really great time in Castelldefels and Apartementos Caru. The Apartment was at perfect location, short walking to Beach and lovely Castelldefels-city. The Apartment was really good and there were all things what we needed for cooking etc.
Thank you and we will come again!
Great location, great apartment, Rosas knowledge of the area and Barcelona very helpful (local map, Barcelona map and places to go) the T10 ticket which you can use on trains, buses and metro(underground) is brilliant,,,,€9.95 ten trips so our family of 5 anywhere in Barcelona 1 hour 15 minutes maximum travel time each way only cost €9.95 total.
Nearby supermarket 4 minutes walk, Lidl and Carrefour 15/20 minutes walk 24hr petrol station 4 minutes walk. Very clean apartment, lovely pool, great holiday.
Our stay was towards the end of the season in October. With a young daughter of 18 months old, we didn't want the weather to be too hot or the resort to be too busy, so this time was ideal. We chose the apartment because previous reviews showed it as being ideal for young family. We agree fully. Rosa was very helpful indeed, going to great lengths to point out the local facilities in the area and at the apartments too. At all stages the communication from Eliso and Rosa were clear and very helpful.
The apartment was clean, tidy and comfortable. We were a little late arriving and Rosa helpfully left the key and called me to tell me where. There is a very clean and tidy pool area which we were brave enough to use on one of the sunnier days, it is deep, so obviously supervision is needed with smaller children. Rosa kindly brought some buckets and spades and other toys for our daughter to use here and on the beach.
To be honest, this place would be difficult to beat. It is a short 15 minute walk from the railway station ( maximum) by a very direct simple route. It is 5 minutes walk from a well stocked supermarket and a further 15 minutes walk to the beach and seafront. Here there are plenty of bars, shops and restaurants. All these distances were travelled with a child in a buggy, so in reality they are even slightly shorter. The seafront is pleasant enough, plenty there some food places were better than others but most were clean and a good standard.
The other direction just beyond the railway station takes you into the town. This is a fairly bustling place with plenty of places to eat or have a drink. Not the most picturesque town centre but still OK. In any case, the short train journeys to Barcelona or Sitges are really quick and simple, as is the train journey from the airport. We purposely decided to travel without hiring a car and were really glad we didn't. The railway network in the region is brilliant! Fast, clean and great value too. This is far less frantic than staying in the city but has the advantage of being only a short journey away from Barcelona. Simply the best of both worlds!
All in all, we would recommend these apartments without hesitation. we had a great time and will certainly be back in the near future. Many thanks.
Eugene, Tracy & Carmel.
