About the property

3 bedroom house with large pool. 2 minutes walk to lovely main beach and 5 minutes walk to shops and restaurants.

The house is in a perfect location within a short walk of the fabulous main Alcossebre beach and the town centre. The house, which is on a small gated community of 28 has a private enclosed garden, upstairs and downstairs terraces and shares a large pool. The house and location are perfect for families or those who don't want the hassle of having to use the car every time they go out. Alcossebre is a lovely unspoiled Spanish town with fabulous clean beaches and a large selection of restaurants and shops. The town is a perfect base for exploring some beautiful, largely undiscovered, parts of Spain.

About Dave and Sally Derham

Dave and Sally Derham live in the countryside 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 carried out 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 house in 2002

Why Dave and Sally Derham chose Alcossebre

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 makes this house unique

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!

Excellent holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's holiday and would highly recommend it for a relaxing break in this beautiful part of Spain.

Dave and Sally were very attentive and helpful, and always quick to respond to any query's.

The house is lovely - clean and well maintained with a communal pool close by, and only a short distance away from the shops, restaurants and the beautiful sandy beach.

Would love to visit again!

Great House in Alcossebre

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be exactly as advertised. In an ideal location, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The house was clean and well equipped, perfect for a relaxing family holiday. The owners ensured we had all the information we needed for our stay and gave us the details of places to visit, some very good restaurants which we thoroughly enjoyed and were very helpful with any queries/requests we had. Alcossebre is a pretty place to visit, with lovely sandy beaches, we would recommend to family and friends. We hope to visit ourselves again soon.

Relaxing Holiday House

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful and spacious three bedroom house in a great location, just a couple of minutes walk to a beautiful sandy beach. Plus the added bonus of a shared pool to use on the small complex of houses. Which was a must have for our children.

The property was very clean, well maintained and equipped with everything that we needed including a washing machine and downstairs cloakroom.

It has a large lounge and outside garden terrace. The rooms all have balconies which made the property seem more spacious as we could sit outside in the sunshine relaxing reading a book.

Nothing was too much trouble for Dave and Sally who answered all our questions and were so welcoming. Calling us at the house on the first day to check that we had settled in.

We would highly recommend this property. It was over forty degrees when we visited. Which meant that we went out sightseeing during the day and to the beach at about 5pm when it was cooler.

We would recommend that you visit Vinaros, Peniscola, and Morella.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your lovely review. We are extremely pleased that you enjoyed your stay so much. It looks like you were a bit unlucky with the temperature as it is not ususally that hot even in August, but we are pleased that you used that as an excuse to tour the wonderful region during the hottest times. We agree with your suggestions of places to visit. Thank you for choosing our house for your holiday.

Excellent accomodation and service from the owners

  • 5 of 5

Dave and Sally provided excellent service before and during our stay at their lovely house including a detailed and really useful information pack about the house, location and surrounding area. The welcome pack provided was a lovely surprise and meant that we did not have to immediately stock up on essentials.The accommodation did not disappoint and was spotlessly clean and provided everything we needed throughout our stay. The rooms were light and airy and the outside space was private and secure and a lovely area to enjoy alfresco dining and drinking. There were birds nesting on the patio when we arrived and we were lucky enough to see the chicks take their first flight and leave the nest.

The house is in an excellent location, only 5 minutes from the beach and close to all the bars and restaurants but despite this close proximity you hear very little noise. It was really hot during our stay and the fans provided were welcome.

We will definitely stay again in this lovely house if we visit the area again and thank Dave and Sally for allowing us to stay in their beautiful home.

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.
