3 bed, 2 bathroom villa close to the beach
The villa is in a popular beach town on a quiet street. It is only a 2-3 minute walk to the sandy Las Fuentes beach, a small supermarket and cafes. The port and surrounding restaurants are a 10 minute walk away.
There is a large private pool with 3 outside terraces (one a roof terrace), outdoor BBQ, double living room, air-conditioning in the upstairs bedrooms and living room (the downstairs bedroom only has a portable air con unit). The kitchen is small but has everything you need, including washing machine, and it opens out onto the back terrace where the bbq is.
There are two bathrooms and an outdoor shower by the pool.
The garden is spacious and fully fenced with a driveway big enough for 3 cars to park.

About the Owner
We are an English couple with a 4 year old son and a 2 year old daughter. We have family in Spain and decided to buy the villa a few years ago. The town of Alcossebre suited us perfectly with its good sandy beaches, restaurants, beautiful running/biking/walking hill trails, plenty of shops and activities but retaining its Spanish feel, with the majority of holiday makers being Spanish themselves. Since we have children, we can happily make available a cot, highchair, stroller, steriliser, toys, blankets etc.
Although for the last two years work has brought us to New Zealand, so currently my husband's family helps us to look after the villa as they live close by year round.

Had a great time
Great two weeks here. Close to the beach and cafes. Loved the space and having our own pool. Quiet. We rented a car and would recommend as the big supermarket is a drive away (although there is a mini one much closer but more expensive) also used it to go to some other beaches and the water park. Hoping to return to this villa in the summer.
Stayed here in October with my wife, two children and my parents. Really close to the beach, quiet, big garden, clean, nice pool (a bit chilly but then it was Autumn!). We hired a car and drove into the national park to some of the remote beaches, well worth it. There is a great mini supermarket a couple of minutes away where we got fresh baguettes each morning. No problems at all and really enjoyed our week. Thanks :)
Great house and holiday
My husband and I stayed for one week with 4 friends last September. Great house, easy to walk to shops and restaurants, close to national park and beaches.
We didn't use the kitchen much as we tended to eat out or use the bbq, but all the necessary bits seemed to be there. Pool was still warm enough to use.
Very quiet spot, didn't really hear much from other houses. The owner Fiona was happy to answer all of questions before booking (and we had quite a few!) and returned our breakages deposit within 5 days of us leaving. All in all a good price, great holiday and would happily return.
Wonderful Villa in a great spot
My wife and I stayed earlier this year with our daughter. This is the first time we have booked a holiday through ownersdirect so we were a little nervous but everything worked out beautifully.
We loved the villa, especially the pool and how close it was to the beach. We became quite the regulars at the local beach cafe and went there most days for a late breakfast and then a swim.
Even though it was early May the weather was warm enough to have a bbq most nights. Everything we needed at the villa, it was clean inside and the pool was cleaned again once during our stay.
We appreciated that a few basic groceries had been brought and left in the kitchen for us - milk, some bread and soft drinks. Meant we could relax a little before heading off to the supermarket.
The little supermarket nearby seemed to keep quite "Spanish" opening hours so don't expect it to be open all day! We will be booking again in 2015 but this time in July. Great holiday.
Great Family Holiday
We stayed at the villa for one week in August. It was perfect for us and our two children (age 5 & 9). Having our own pool meant we didn't have to go to the beach on the days it was really hot. The garden is big and plenty of space for the kids to run around. The TV/DVD player came in handy in the evenings. The kitchen isn't big but it had everything we needed ad cooked at home most nights - really enjoyed eating out on the terrace by the pool. Easy to walk to the shops/bars/cafes and beach is really on a few minutes away. Stayed pretty cool downstairs, only used the aircon in the bedrooms at night.
Only minor complaint is that the bathroom upstairs has pretty poor water pressure so the shower wasn't great. Although the kids often used the one outside by the pool which was much better.
Overall, we had a lovely stay and would go back.
Just returned from a wonderful holiday in a part of Spain we hadn't visited before. The Villa is lovely as viewed in photographs and with three adult sons plenty of space.The Villa is well equipped and has air conditioning in upstairs bedrooms and in main living area downstairs. The unit that was in the downstairs bedroom was not effective so used the air conditioning in living area and left door open.
The swimmimg pool was adequate size for swimming and playing pool games.
We hired bikes and explored the area, from the National park to right along the coast. Although Alcossebre main town is lovely we did prefer Las Fuentes which was a maximum five minute walk from the Villa. Fiona was extremely helpful and answered any questions and equipped us with information of places to eat, visit ect. promptly. Probabably the best service we have ever experienced. I would highly recommend the Villa and the destination. Would go back, still plenty more to see
From the Owner
“We bought this villa as although a holiday destination, Alcossebre is still full of locals and isn't too "touristy". The restaurants are good and being so close to the beach is great. Very much a family friendly town with lots of hikes/runs, cycle tracks and good cafes.”
Activity and Interests
Special interest holidays:
The beautiful national park (Sierra d'Irta) borders Alcossebre and can be reached on foot, by car or bicycle within a couple of minutes from the villa. The park follows the mountain range along the coast and has some stunning views, secluded beaches and opportunity for bird watching. There are popular cycling and running trails throughout the park. There are diving/snorkelling sites along this stretch of coast.
The nearest beach is a 2 minute walk away; it is a lovely sandy, EU blue flag beach with a play area, windsurfing, scuba diving and a small & friendly beach bar. There are another 5 sandy beaches close by (again, all EU blue flag awarded).
Valencia Airport is 60 minutes away (serviced by Easyjet, BA, Ryanair etc)
Reus Airport is 1hr 30 mins. Barcelona is 2hrs. A new Airport, Castellon Airport is 20 mins away (Ryanair)
There is one large supermarket, plus a number of smaller ones, in town - a mini supermarket is a couple of minutes walk from the villa. Cash points, banks, English speaking doctor, cafes, bars, restaurants are all within walking distance of the villa.
