Luxury Apartment overlooking Panoramica Championship Golf Course, Close to beaches and mountain

This is your opportunity to experience a beautiful part of Spain which is still unspoiled by the tourist industry. Our luxury apartment is directly overlooking the 8th Fairway on the Panoramica Championship Golf Course (designed by Bernhard Langer). The Swiss-Built development of only 24 apartments has a huge ornate swimming pool, barbecue area and gardens. In addition to offering fantastic Golf, this is a great base for exploring local beaches, towns and amazing scenery.

About Dave and Sally Derham

Dave and Sally Derham live in an old farmhouse on the outskirts of Bristol. Dave runs his own coaching and consultancy business whilst Sally is a therapist specialising in panic attacks and phobias, working largely on the recommendation of local GP's. Dave and Sally have always been keen on property design and serious DIY. They have recently carried out their most ambitious project to date - a barn conversion, which they now live in. They did most of the building work themselves and found it a massive learning exercise! As well as doing therapy work, Sally works with a local rescue centre to rehabilitate problematic dogs which have been abandoned. Dave relaxes by playing guitar and rebuilding classic cars and motorcycles.

Dave and Sally Derham purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Dave and Sally Derham chose Castellon Province

Dave and Sally 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, Dave and Sally bought a house on the coast in 2002. Shortly after this, they both started working for themselves and were able to spend a lot more time in Spain. The more time they spent there, the more they loved it. In 2004 they were really impressed when they saw the new apartments being built by a Swiss company at Panoramica. The apartments are lovely and the setting is stunning. They quickly decided to buy one.

What makes this apartment unique

The location is perfect for anyone wanting a holiday exploring the beautiful area inland as well as being 15 minutes from lovely beaches. The magnificent Golf course is a bonus. The Panoramica site itself is in a lovely location surrounded by miles of orange groves. It is incredibly peaceful and you can't help but relax when you are there. Most of our guests there spend time exploring the area and are all amazed by the scenery and places they visit. The children love it as the pool is one of the best we have seen anywhere and it is never crowded. The apartment overlooks the pool so it is great for the parents to relax on the terrace and keep an eye on the kids!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Fantastic apartment, stunning views, great restaurants and the most relaxing place we have ever been! Many thanks.

Chris and Paul James



We had a lovely time, your apartment is lovely and the complex is brilliant. We would definitely consider going again and I would recommend your apartment to any of our family or friends that may be considering a holiday in Spain.

We've just arrived home safely and wanted to let you know how much we've enjoyed our stay at your apartment - it's so peaceful and we couldn't believe we had that beautiful pool to ourselves most of the time! Your apartment provided us with all the necessary home comforts and we spent many a night just chilling on the balcony. It also provided us with a perfect base from which to explore the surrounding area - we took your advice and visited Ulldecona Lake which was a massive hit with our 15 year old daughter - much to our surprise!

Excellent apartment, well presented and ideal aspect

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was clean, well furnished and had everything we needed. With the sun from morning to evening on the balcony it was the perfect place to relax. The pool and bbq area are well maintained and great for cooling down and comfortable evenings.

Beautiful apartment in idyllic setting

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed in the apartment for a week last September. We booked it because we were looking for somewhere where we could totally chill out but also have chance to drive around and explore. We weren't disappointed.

The apartment itself is lovely - nicely furnished, very clean and very well kept - and the views are beautiful. The pool is really clean and pretty much always empty, which was perfect for us!

A car is definitely needed if staying here, but the location is great. Lovely and quiet and close to beach and mountains - so lots to explore!

We'd definitely recommend a stay here, and plan to return ourselves again in the future.

Lovely holiday!!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a lovely, relaxing week at this apartment. On arrival we found it to be spotlessly clean, with the beds all made and a selection of essential provisions in the fridge. This apartment is lovely because the corner balcony overlooks the golf course and the swimming pool, which was great as we could watch our teenage boys enjoy the pool, whilst relaxing watching the golfers. Quite often the boys had the pool to themsleves, as it is only used by the residence in the four apartment blocks, and as these weren't all occupied it felt very private.

The location is great. You definately need a car, but the coast and mountains are only around a 25 min drive away. Barcelona is about a 1hr 45 mins, and we did this in a day trip. However, just be aware of the toll charges as it cost us 25 euros each way.

We had the most fantastic time and there is nothing I can fault about this appartment. Also the owners have been really flexible with changeover days and helpful with any questions, providing good information about the facilities and places of interest around. All in all a 5 star holiday and we would not hesitate in going back. Thanks again Dave and Sally.
