About the Owner

Lynda and I retired to Spain 11 years ago after selling our business. Our 2 sons 'flew the nest' some years ago so we felt it was our turn to relax and enjoy some better weather. My love of golf influenced the area we settled in and Lynda's love of painting was influenced by the vivid light and views in this area of Eastern Spain. We enjoyed the area so much that we purchased a villa on the hills overlooking the sea and village of Las Fuentes where we now live and have a penthouse apartment for renting (Owners Direct S7602).

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Ross and Lynda,

Finally arrived home late last night and we would like to thank you both very much for renting us your beautiful penthouse. The view was well worth the climb and the apartment was extremely comfortable and a real home from home.

We had a lovely restful holiday in Alcossebre doing very little (which was the plan!), plenty of good food, wine and sun.

Thank you both, once again, we had a fabulous time.

Best wishes

A wonderful apartment with stunning scenery

  • 5 of 5

We spent two wonderful weeks in this apartment at the end of September. The apartment is big and very well equipped. There are two veranda's for sunbathing and enjoying the amazing views down to the sea and also a swimming pool to cool down in. We spent quite a few evenings on the upper balcony barbequing and enjoying the views. There are lots of restaurants in Alcossebre to choose from and are only about a 10 minute drive away. The beaches in Alcossebre and all along the coast are amazing they are all cleaned daily and offer lovely long walks along the promenade. A trip to Valencia is also very worthwhile. We did not see Ross or Lynda very much during our stay but they were there if we needed anything. Thank you Ross and Lynda for letting us stay in your lovely apartment and for your kind hospitality, it was lovely meeting you both.

Owner's Response: Thanks Maureen for your lovely comments and we are so pleased you enjoyed your holiday. Alcossebre is a such a nice town with great beaches and restaurants. The fantastic boardwalks along miles of beaches really enhance the area. It was great to meet you both with a glass of wine on a warm, balmy evening on our terrace. Cheers! Ross & Lynda

beautiful and stunning

  • 5 of 5

This is one the best properties we have stayed in. The owners have created a beautiful villa and the view from apartment is stunning. There is no noise at all and so you can hear the waves all the way down on the beach a 2 km distance. So peaceful. The pool is also very lovely, over looking the coast with also a lovely deck to use. Everything has been carefully thought out and we were made to feel very welcome. We felt so privileged to share this property and for such a good price. It was an amazing two weeks. We loved the coastal areas down below and enjoyed exploring the these areas from both car and walking from the property. It is a very welcoming part of the world and we felt we stayed in a pocket of Spain that is truly still not spoilt by tourists. We visited local castles and under ground caves - there is so much to do. Can not fault any part of it.

Owner's Response: Thank you Ruth for your great comments and we are so pleased you enjoyed your stay here on El Pinar hillside. You reflected the reasons we live in this beautiful, unspoiled area and luckily we get to look out on the fantastic view out to sea and the islands of the Columbretes all year long. Thanks again and best wishes to all your family, Ross & Lynda

A Very Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a most relaxing holiday during which we never bored of sitting on one of the many terraces/rooms admiring the view day or night. The apartment is extremely well appointed with everything you need and the outside areas are beautifully laid out, offering sun or shade all day. Our favourite was standing cooling off in the pool looking out to sea. The property is very peaceful yet only five/ten minutes drive to the lively resort of Alcossebre with a great variety of restaurants and shops. Ross and Lynda are friendly and helpful but never intrusive. The steps are not as daunting as we expected and a great way of keeping fit as you can become very lazy when all you have to do in a morning is look over the end of the bed and see the sea.

A fantastic property in stunning location

  • 5 of 5

I cannot praise this property and its owners highly enough. We have just returned after a 7 night stay, in this absoulutely stunning property, in a commanding location atop a mountain overlooking Las Fuenetes/Alcossebre. The property is everything we wanted, and very well equiped. The pool and the veranda, are fantastic for relaxation and immaculate, and with the Spanish sun beating down on you, it really allows you to relax and enoy yourselves. Located atop a hill, you will need a car, but the remoteness of the location simply adds to the experience, with town a 5 minute drive down the hill. Plenty to do in the area, if you so wish, but the property is the star of this show.

Thank you to Ross and Linda for allowing us to use their lovely property.

wonderful relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful stay in this lovely well equipped penthouse apartment.

It is on the hillside so a car is required but the local village/harbour/beach, restaurants and supermarket are only about 10 minutes drive down a very picturesque winding road.

Different areas within the building for sunbathing and enjoying the view and they all have shade if required.

Lovely outside dining area with BBQ and a fantastic private pool for your sole use.

There are lots of steps to get to the top so possibly not suitable for the less mobile.

Would highly recommend this apartment to anyone wanting a quiet relaxing time away.

Initially we bought an apartment on Panoramica Golf course where we lived for a while and then grew to love the area of Las Fuentes near Alcossebre where we bought a villa overlooking the sea with spectacular views We modernised the villa on the El Pinar hillside and finished the penthouse apartment which we have rented out for the last 9 years.
