Apartment in Alcossebre, Costa del Azahar, Spain - 5 Minutes Walk To The Town Center And Beach
CASTELLON AIRPORT VIA RYANAIR FROM BRISTOL AND STANSTEAD FROM 15/16 SEPTEMBER 2015 ! A Twenty minute taxi ride away. This ground floor apartment has it's own large terrace with a communal garden, pool and toddlers pool. It is only five minutes walk from the town centre with shops, bars and restaurants. The apartment is situated just behind the centre of Alcossebre.
A recent Sunday Times review (19th April 2015) stated that Alcossebre is "a coastal village that still feels like a personal discovery: because of strict planning laws it has escaped the high-rise development that has swept other parts of the coast.
>>> The main attraction here is the pristine long, sandy beaches and safe, clean waters. On Playa de las Fuentes for example, a freshwater spring comes down from the mountains crossing the beach and flowing into the sea."

Just What We Wanted
A thoroughly enjoyable stay in a lovely two bedroomed apartment, ground floor with a pool within arm's reach. Out of the centre of town, but still within walking distance of beaches and restaurants, and shuffling distance from a well stocked supermarket. Tastefully furnished with all mod cons including wifi, our stay here was exactly what we wanted. John and Sally are on site if needed, which was helpful. I would happily recommend both the apartment and the area, and would specifically recommend the short trip to Peniscola, and El Pinar to eat.
Excellent, relaxed,couldn't ask for more
The apartment was exactly as described. We have stayed numerous times in this area. It is still very Spanish, relaxed and charming. We took our two boys, aged 12 and 6. They, as we enjoyed the two weeks. The small complex was beautifully maintained, the lawns and gardens beautiful. Our apartment had everything you need for a short or extended visit. It was beautifully clean and comfortable. John and Sally met us on our arrival, and we're very welcoming and on hand throuout if we needed them.
My wife had previously been nervous about travel accommodation! Now she wants to return to the same apartment for our future holidays.
Both boys gave it 10 out of 10.
My opinion, everything about the holiday was excellent, great family holiday and very good value for money. Not including the usual aspects of Ryanair
John and Sally deserve the highest praise possible.
Best place we have ever stayed at .
Lovely place . The swimming pool and complex are the best .
The perfect apartment for a family of 4. Perhaps the best way to describe apartment and the location of it would be to summarize our 2 weeks stay in July 2015. First and foremost the apartment was intended as a base for visits to nearby towns by car and to function as a relaxing spot in the sun afterwards. The apartment offers everything you need from washing machine to microwave oven. Everything promised by owner is delivered. We experienced approximately 10 min. walk to the most delightful beach and the town with its many shops, cafés and restaurants. It's important to mention that the town and it's surroundings is a Spanish holiday area and therefore much more authentic in nature. We dinned at the apartment ever half the time and its made so easy to shop groceries with a local supermarket 5 min. from the apartment. It's called Consum and it offers everything you need with pricing aimed at the local population and therefore not overpriced. The area surrounding the apartment is just lovely. Well kept and trimmed. If your up for a pool with water you can stay in forever, your at the right place. I prefer cooler water but my wife, son and daughter gives it top rating. The pool is located 25 steps from the apartment, just sweet. We often went for walks along the beach line in the evenings, and it's such a pleasure to stroll along the beach during the more temperate part of the day with your feet in the waterline. The owners of this apartment are the most smiling and outgoing couple who is always nearby is needed.
Towns to visit nearby (car recommended, 40 min. drive):
Peniscola. The town itself is a bit of a tourist spot, but if you drive all the way to the beachfront you'll end up at the feet of a castle worth a visit. Small streets and a very romantic setting meets you straight away and the view over the town is amazing from the top of the castle towers.
Valencia (car recommended, 90 min. drive):
I won't go into details on Valencia. But it's such a beautiful city with tons of attractions. You may find that you need to visit Valencia more than once during your stay.
Restaurants: Best restaurants is placed on the street behind the boardwalk. There is a Michelin recommended restaurant called El Pinar on a mountain site close by thats worth a visit with very fair pricing.
It's the second time we have enjoyed the hospitality of Alcossebre and it won't be the last. Thank you John and Sally.
The property exceeded my expectations.
We stayed in John and Sally's apartment for 7weeks,it has been well maintained and was spotless.Gardens and swimming pool were well cared for. Having John And Sally on site was also a bonus.Marjorie and I both agreed it was the nicest part of Spain we had visited and to add everywhere was so close to hand.We will be back dogs as well .Thanks again John and Sally.Kindest regards,John and Marjorie Doswell.
My hubby & I had 17 very enjoyable days here from mid Feb. The complex is easy to find & he owners are very friendly, helpful & very pleasant to deal with. It's a lovely clean tidy apartment about 15 mins walk from the town centre & beach, & less than 5 mins from a big Consum supermarket. The complex is well maintained, quiet & friendly. Would certainly recommend it.
