Julie Roodnat purchased this house in 2005
Why Julie Roodnat chose Costa Azahar
We purchased our holiday home after watching 'Place in the Sun'. The programme featured Alcossebre situated at the Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast). We instantly booked flights and fell in love with Alcossebre. 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, it is also a conservation area. Beaches are beautiful and the area is family friendly with lots of children play areas. There are numerous traditional tapas bars, restaurants and ice cream parlours. All with stunning sea and mountain views! Alcossebre is also beautiful out of season when temperatures are not too high. This time of year is ideal for hiking, walking, touring or a stroll on the beach after tapas, or of course just relaxing. Nothing quite like a siesta! After all you are in Spain.
What makes this house unique
Alcossebre is an extremely relaxing location, we holiday here as much as possible. Also our family love to visit Casa Sara. It is a very safe environment and beaches are pristine. There are many walks suitable for all in the Sierra de Irta. Our favorite walk is the beautiful coastal walk to the lighthouse.

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!
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.
Fantastic family holiday
House was well furnished and spotlessly clean. Location ideal - quiet but an easy walk to beach and small supermarket. Kids loved the pools on the complex. Owner very helpful and always quick to respond. Highly recommend.
Beautiful looking property, excellent condition
Wonderful house. Really felt like it was a home from home, with little touches like soap dispensers, lovely lamps, pictures etc. Didn't feel stark but didn't feel too personal, just right! Everywhere was lovely and clean, and beds were nice and comfortable. Air Conditioning was a welcome addition. Pool was good, and very convenient position - close enough to just pop into from the terrace.
Lots of equipment in the kitchen, and also nice plates not just plain white, and a well stocked chest outside with toys, sun umbrellas, sun chair etc.
Great communication with the owner and very speedy responses.
Good location for lovely beaches, supermarket and numerous restaurants all within walking distance, but a little further into centre of resort for gift shops and more amenities (walk along dusty path/beach deck or short drive).
Visited water park and Peniscola which were both good days out and about 20 minute drive away.
Favourite restaurant was "el patio" in centre of resort.
Would defiantly recommend if you wanted good beaches and a slightly quieter part of the resort.
Thank you for a lovely holiday!
Lovely relaxing holiday
We arrived at Casa Sara after about an hour and 20 minutes drive from Valencia Airport. Julie's directions were spot on even with photos of places we would pass along the way. This was our first visit to Costa Del Azahar and we loved Alcossebre. Casa Sara is a home from home holiday villa, very clean light and airy. The kitchen is well equipped and has essentials in the cupboards. There was also a welcome pack in the fridge of Milk, Orange juice and bottled water. There is a shower room downstairs and a bathroom upstairs with another shower over the bath. A lovely roof terrace with great views of the mountains with two sun loungers and a small table and chairs. There is also a terrace downstairs with a larger table and chair and a sun canopy. The pool and gardens are immaculate, we had the pool to ourselves most days. The beaches in Alcossebre are all blue flag and kept clean. There is a wooden walkway which goes along the coastline into the town. Plenty of restaurants, some of the nicer ones more towards the Marina at Las Fuentes. El Patio was a favourite, the food was really good, also El Pinar which is a short drive up the mountains. The views from there are just wonderful and the food was excellent and staff friendly. There is a supermarket about 10 minutes walk from Casa Sara that stocks everything you need. Overall we had a fantastic time and would recommend this to couples or families for a relaxing holiday.
