Alcossebre is a rare jewel on the Spanish coastline. It has managed to retain its Spanish charm and has not been spoiled by mass tourism. This applies to the majority of the Costa Azahar, which is the main orange producing area of Spain. There a many traditional Spanish towns within a short drive as well as some stunning scenery. The towns of Peniscola and Morella are certainly worth visiting.

We have just come back from our second visit to Dave and Sally's property in Alcossebre and have no doubt we will go back again. The house is located in a quite location and is perfect for our family of 5, it is very well equipped, a really good size and spotlessly clean, the outside space is great for sitting with the family, and the welcome pack a nice touch as we arrived late. The weather was very hot and we spent most of the time by the pool (which we had pretty much to ourselves) or the beach which is very close to the house. We ate out at many of the restaurants and found them all of good quality and compared to other areas in Spain very reasonably priced. We had one trip to Peniscola which is worth the visit if the weather not too hot for walking up to the castle. I would not hesitate to recommend the house or the area for a relaxing family holiday.

We stayed in August and cannot rate the house and location more highly. The house was very well equipped and stocked with various things the owners are prepared to let you use. The house was spacious and clean. The terraces located off the bedrooms and off the living room were excellent and very well used. The swimming pool was 30 second walk, it was a great size and very well maintained and the garden was lovely. The house was ideally located, just a few minutes walk to the beach and to the town and supermarket very close by. The walk to restaurants and bars was very pleasant along the seafront. We had the use of a car but you really don't need it. We visited the water park which the kiDs loved and drove to Morella in the mountains which was a lovely day out. The beaches were lovely, we tried the banana boat and the person's. I would have no hesitation recommending this house and hope to go back in the future.

"Just what's needed"
We have just returned from a wonderful two weeks in this lovely villa and location. It's difficult to find a suitable holiday for our five children aged between 17yrs and 2yrs but this really worked well for us all. The pool is gorgeous and usually very quiet, the beach in walking distance with loads of teenager friendly activities on offer! The villa itself is clean, well equipped with plenty of room. The garden and patio area are perfect for relaxing with the family. Alcossebre , we found to be a friendly and vibrant place which comes alive during the night with its many restaurants and bars. Which welcome families. Dave could not have been more helpful and went out of his way to offer us tips and advise on the area. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa for holidays! And looking forward to hopefully going back one day.

We had a great week at this house. Location is superb with just a 5 minute walk to an excellent beach and 10 mins into the centre of town where there is a good selection of restaurants and bars. The house itself has a communal pool close by but we never used it due to the proximity of the beach. The house is very well presented - clean and spacious and on a very secure gated complex. We couldn't fault the accommodation in any way nor the helpfulness of the owners in providing advice and assistance if needed. A great holiday.

"Family Holiday in Alcossebre"
We stayed in this 3-bed Town House in Alcossebre in July and August of this year. We had a most relaxing time and the house is located in a very convenient part of town with easy access to the beach and facilities. It was easy to find and the house is well furnished with 3 good sized bedrooms which meant our 2 boys slept in separate bedrooms! That might have helped with the relaxation. The pool within the complex was great which we used at least twice everyday. It was never particularly busy and was perfect for a refreshing swim after a day out. The garden was also a very pleasant spot to watch the stars come out in the evening and meet the friendly neighbourhood geckos. It was very hot when we were there and the upstairs of the house and the street in front of the house can get hot during direct sunlight. Enjoyed the laid back atmosphere of Alcosebbre and the mix of nationalities holidaying there. We will be back one day! Paul

Year property purchased: 2002
Why this location?
We first visited the Cost Del Azahar in 1996 and fell in love with it immediately. It is a very rare jewel which has retained its genuine Spanish charm and has avoided the blight of mass tourism. Having spent several holidays exploring the area and looking for our ideal property, we finally found our dream and bought the house in 2002. Shortly after this, we both started working for ourselves and are now able to spend a lot more time in Spain. The more time we spend there the more we love it.
What are the unique benefits of the property?
Alcossebre is a wonderfully relaxing place to be. We feel the weight fall off our shoulders every time we arrive! The character of the place changes throughout the year, which makes it very interesting. In winter it is quite quiet, but significantly warmer and sunnier than the UK. In peak season there is a real buzz about the place. We really like the fact that Alcossebre is not full of Brits - the majority of people there are Spanish, although there is a nice mixture of British, French, German, Dutch and Scandinavian visitors. Enough people here speak English to make life easy. There is a great choice of restaurants within a short walk. The beaches are fabulous. There is a endless list of great places to visit if you are the exploring type - which we are!
