About Julie Roodnat

Ronald is a freelance IT Developer working in banking and Julie a telephonist working for a large Hospital.. We have two daughters. Also a precious five year old granddaughter. Isabelle is on her third holiday to Casa Sara but this time with Grandma & Grandad. We really can't wait!

Julie Roodnat purchased this house in 2003

Why Julie Roodnat chose Costa Azahar

We purchased our holiday home after watching 'Place in the Sun in 2003. The programme featured Alcossebre situated at the Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast). We instantly booked flights and fell in love with Alcossebre, the rest is history. We named Casa Sara after Julie's Grandma as she was 90 the year we purchased. This is a very authentic part of Spain. There are no high-rise buildings here, this region is a conservation area. Beaches and coves are beautiful. Alcossebre is extremely family friendly with lots of children play areas. There are numerous delicious traditional tapas bars, restaurants and mouth watering homemade ice cream parlours also serving crepes & waffles truly scrumptious! All with stunning sea and mountain views! Alcossebre is also beautiful out of season when temperatures are not too high Ideal for hiking,cycling,walking, bird watching or stroll on the beach Tapas & sangrria, or just relaxi Nothing quite like a siesta!

What makes this house unique

Alcossebre is an extremely relaxing location we holiday here as much as possible. Also our family love to visit too. Casa Sara so very quiet safe environment. Beaches and coves are pristine. There are many walks suitable for all in the Sierra de Irta. Our favorite walk is to the lighthouse,when feeling energetic we take a picnic and bottle of wine into the mountains absolute bliss.

Our holiday home has everything you need for a very enjoyable comfortable stay the views and open airy feel make this a very special place to spend quality time. We hope you enjoy your holiday at Casa Sara as much as we do!

A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

A very well equipped home away from home. Casa Sara has got everything that we needed for a weeks stay in Spain. A short stroll to the sea front and about a 10 minute walk to some typical Spanish restaurants to enjoy tapas. The complex is very well kept with mown grass and a clean swimming pool. Julie arranged for us to be collected from the airport by a very friendly local who was ready and waiting for us when we arrived and the welcome pack was a nice touch with an ice cold beer and a glass of wine awaiting us when we arrived.

We really couldn't fault our stay at Casa Sara.

Excellent holiday house and location - loved it!!

  • 5 of 5

Had a fantastic break as this delightful property. A real home from home and kept in immaculate condition. The house is in a great location with 3 outdoor areas!! We loved the roof terrace with spectacular mountain views , was so relaxing sitting with a cup of tea in the morning and a vino in the evening admiring the views. The location is just right, its quiet for relaxation but the pool, beaches and restaurants ( and supermarket) are close by. We really loved the beautiful ( un-cramped !) beaches and loved to walk up to Les Fuentes and have lunch at the great restaurants on the sea front.

The owner ,Julie, was terrific. Booking was swift and she even arranged with her property manager to do a very reasonably priced transfer from the airport as we were not hiring a car. Thank you Julie! We love your house and have no hesitation in recommending to others . Please save us a slot for next year we are missing the sun !!!

We just wanted to say thank you for a great holiday at Casa Sara. You’d thought of everything, it truly is a wonderful home from home. Everywhere was so clean and we loved relaxing on the roof terrace after a day by the pool or at the beach, we will definitely be back! We’re recommending it to our friends and family too.

Fantastic house in a great location!

  • 5 of 5

Myself my husband and our 4 year old daughter stayed at Casa Sara. Before our departure the owners were very helpful and gave us all the information we needed before we traveled. The house far exceeded our expectations. It was tastefully decorated, spacious and spotlessly clean but still felt homely. We particularly loved the pool area, where we spent most of our time, this area is very well maintained and just steps away from the terrace. The terraces were well equipped and we made good use of the roof terrace. The kitchen was also very well equipped and we had everything we needed and more. We found plenty to do in the surrounding area and the local beaches are a must. We felt very safe and our daughter enjoyed playing on the parks and on the beaches which were stunning whilst not being over crowded. There are lots of fantastic places to eat which really made our holiday and our favorite was an Italian called El Patio which had live music on. I would definitely recommend this property and hope to return again in the future!

We had an amazing stay at Casa Sara for 2 weeks. The property is beautifully furnished and has lovely decor. It really has everything you could need. The pool is a stones throw from the outside terrace which is amazing and the beach is a 5 min walk to the end of the road. Couldn't recommend highly enough!!!

Difficult to find fault!

  • 5 of 5

We booked the house on the basis of the previous reviews and were not disappointed. We have stayed in many holiday properties in Spain and this is one of the best. The house is very well furnished, nicely decorated and the quality, quantity and range of equipment provided is excellent. There was only the two of us but the house is big enough that 4 people wouldn't feel cramped, helped by having two showers and toilets. The walk to the beach is a a couple of minutes and the well stocked local supermarket is 10 minutes. It is a good 30 minute walk into the town centre along the beach side road and board walks but only a couple of minutes in the car if you don't fancy the walk. The development which the house is in is well tended (as the is general area) and the pool is only a few metres away from the side of the house. The area was very quiet when we were there (late September) but we like it that way so that was fine.

The owners were very prompt and helpful with our booking arrangements and provided lots of useful information on how to get to the house and the local amenities.

We have visited Alcossebre before and like the relaxed feel and lack of over powering developments. If we are looking to stay in the area again this is certainly a property we would come back to.
