About John Taylor

We are a middle aged couple who just love making our homes "Home from Home" providing everything that we would expect for ourselves.

John Taylor purchased this villa in 2005

Why John Taylor chose Castellon Province

Julie came to visit her old school friend who had emigrated to Alcossebre 9 months earlier. Arrived on the Sunday and went for a drive around the area, fell in love with the area, started looking on the Monday shown Villa Santos in the afternoon, checked where the sun was setting in the evening. Next day bought it, what more could you say!!! I saw the Villa for the 1st time some 4 months later, wow she did well. Since then we have continually improved and upgraded the Villa to our tastes. Peaceful, with great views of the sea below. We love the beaches and the way the local authority have made walkways etc along the sea front.

In short "The Best kept secret in Spain"

What makes this villa unique

The Villa is within easy walking distance of the beaches, shops, tapas bars and restaurants to suit all moods, food choices and pockets. The Villa has the sun all day, but whatever the time of the day there are places to relax in the shade. The pool is maintained twice a week.

Excellent villa with amazing views.

  • 5 of 5

The villa was really lovely with excellent facilities and an amazing view. There are lots of very nice restaurants in Alcossebre but it's really a bit too far to walk to the majority of them, therefore a car is fairly essential. The owners are very nice and extremely helpful. We had a very nice relaxing break.

Owner's Response: Dear Eddie and Lilian We are so glad that you enjoyed your stay at Villa Santos and the local area of Alcossebre. We like think of it as Spain's "Best Kept Secret" and of course there is now a very convenient Airport (Castellon) 15kms away which has just opened. We hope that we can welcome you back again sometime again in the future. Kind Regards John and Julie.

Excellent villa

  • 5 of 5

Cannot recommend this villa enough. The owners were very helpful before our stay and gave us clear directions of how to get there etc. Lovely villa in a lovely Spanish resort away from it all with views of the sea. The amenities were superb at the villa and Alcossebre is a great place to go with lots of restaurants and places of interest nearby. Will be telling my friends to go there!!!

Faultless. John and Julie really care about their property, and it shows. The Villa was absolutely wonderful for us and our two children ages four and five.

Well equipped villa - home from home, better views

  • 5 of 5

Terrific villa with comfortable furniture, satellite TV, good sized pool and excellent views. Very clean on arrival and with everything provided to get started (and more), it was easy to settle in quickly. The owners thoughtfully provide a starter pack but there is also a fully stocked wine fridge, drinks cabinet and kitchen cupboards so renters don't have to buy condiments, olive oil, dishwasher tablets, etc. etc. The air conditioning was invaluable and the pool was a lovely temperature to help to keep us cool. We loved the built in BBQ and simply replaced the charcoal we used. Stunning views of the sea in the evening, especially as it was light until very late. We visited all of the top restaurants, some twice, and found the whole area very reasonably priced, helped by the positive exchange rate at the moment. Coffees, beers and snacks when out and about were very cheap; even Valencia was great value for money and a beautiful place to spend a few days, as we did. I have already recommended the villa to family. Although we walked into Alcossebre or the marina in the evening, those less fit may need to take the car. It is a good 20 minute walk to the marina and 25 back as it is uphill. Although we didn't use the bikes or golf clubs provided, these would have been useful if the weather had been less good. It was too hot to do anything but chill out, read in sun or shade, swim and decide where to eat at night - our perfect Spanish holiday!

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Santos for two weeks early summer 2014. The Villa was perfect for our family with two adults and two children (4 and 5 years old). The children loved the pool during the days and we all had two perfect weeks. The villas kitchen is well equipped (better than other houses we have stayed in). It also perfect that you can find information about the village and the area in the house if you have not made your desk search prior to arriving. We also liked that the village is quite relaxed and not that crowded.

Would definitely stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Jorgen, Many thanks for your kind comments. Hopefully for your next visit the children will be old enough to enjoy the Ping Pong and the bikes as we have just added another small bike. We have just re grouted the Pool. Take care John and Julie
