A lovely one bed apartment set in a small exclusive gated complex, with beautiful mature gardens. The complex is a short walk to the Playa Romana Beach, with a number of excellent restaurants and a small supermarket a few minutes walk away. Alcossebre is a small Spanish town within easy reach of the airports with something for everyone. Clean golden beaches, fabulous restaurants and bars are all within walking distance. For the more energetic, then golfing and scuba diving are all just a short drive away. The apartment recently renovated and has everything you would need to make your time away enjoyable. Whether you want to relax & read, be slightly more energetic and explore the area, or just chill on the beach, Alcossebre really does have it all.
Getting out and about: Special interest holidays Access to the area is relatively good with Valencia and Reus. Alcossebre is a wonderful base and there are some wonderful places to visit. We have the Sierra D'Itra 'mountain' and you can walk/hike. You can also hire pedal bikes and the coast offers safe driving. In addition, scuba diving based in the lovely marina of Las Fuentes.
The large Spanish resort of Oropessa is about a 20 minute drive south of Alcossebre. Whilst it is not everyone's cup of tea (built mainly for the Spanish holiday makers) as it has quite a few high rise hotels. It does have a wonderful spa/indoor swimming pools so if you want to treat yourself then it may suit you (especially out of season if you have a dull day). They even carry out plastic surgery!
Peniscola, Vinaros & Morella: These are 3 great towns well worth a visit. Peniscola is closest and whilst it is a holiday resort it really does have a lot of character. There is the wonderful fort/castle (where they filmed El Cid) which is full of windy streets and restaurants. The prom is about 4 miles long full of ice cream parlours. It makes a great day out for all.
Vinaros is a market town with a lovely shopping area - full of local character and typically Spanish. Because it is the main working town, there is something to see and do all year round. Well worth the visit.
Morella - one of the oldest walled cities in Spain (still inhabited) it is about an 75 min drive. But really worth the effort. It reminds us of York/Bath (except its on a mountain). Lots of great tapas bars/cafes and the views are magnificent. A great day out.
The lounge holds 2 new sofa's, both of which turn into very comfortable sofa beds. The bedroom has a double bed, ceiling fan and a lovely secluded east facing balcony. There is plenty of storage space.
Linen and towels are provided....moreless
The bathroom has just been installed (Nov 2012) and is, as you would expect quite lovely. It is clean and tidy as is the rest of the apartment. A hair dryer is provided (in the bedroom). We decided to remove the bath completely and now you have a large walk in shower that runs across the whole of the bathroom.
There is also an iron and ironing board....moreless
In the morning the balcony off the bedroom is sunny and light. It is east facing. The views are of the garden and the surrounding orchards Off the lounge there is a lovely large west facing balcony with views to the mountains and gardens. We always have breakfast on the east facing balcony and in the late afternoon, when the sun is beating down, the east facing balcony is perfect.
The apartment has been updated and is light and airy. It has a contemporary feel , but has lots of homely touches. It has the feel of a much loved home
There is a tennis court that you are welcome to use....moreless
There are a number of very good golf courses around 30 minutes drive from Alcossebre. ISergio Garcia designed the course at Castellon and there is a good course - Panoramica close to Vinaros...moreless

There are 5 beaches in and around Alcossebre. All are excellent, and meet the European Blue Flag standard for cleanliness. The closest beach (Playa Romana) is a few minutes gentle stroll from the La Senia complex. All of the beaches are gently sloping, with clean golden sand, and the sea is ideal for children and adults alike.
The bungalow is in the Playa Romana area of Alcossebre, a 15 - 20 min walk into the town itself. Nearby Las Fuentes with its beautiful marina is within walking distance. For the fun followers, then the Universal theme park about an hours drive up the coast.
The local supermarket is a short walk from the complex, as are some excellent restaurants. In the town centre, are 3 small supermarkets, a number of banks/plenty of cash machines, a tourist information centre, and many many restaurants, bars and tapas bars.
All of the above are well stocked shops, but for the 'big shop' we usually go to one of the hypermarkets on the N340.
Golf: The beautiful golf course (Panoramica) in San Jordi is an approximate 25 minutes drive, it was designed by Bernhard Langer. . Another course (Cap i Corp) is being built with completion due late 2008. There is also Sergio Garcia's course at Castellon - about 25 - 30 minute drive away
Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I run my own firm, Carematters, based in St Albans. Carematters provides information and advice to later life clients. I love my role but it is very presurised, and as a result regular trips to Alcossebre help me cope with the pressures of life
Why the Owner Chose Castellon Province: simple, it is set in the most lovely gardens in a quite part of Alcossebre and yet close enough to the shops, beach and restaurants to be convenient. we looked at dozens of properties but this one stole our hearts. We never imagined that we would feel the same way 12 years later, but everyone is so friendly and the complex so well maintained that we cannot imagine being without it.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: The complex has beautiful gardens, good sized pool, lots of shade, wonderful fellow owners and guests. Most importantly the complex is incredibly well maintained, it is simply lovely. Properties in a typical Spanish Pueblo style. There is complete peace and quiet (although August does get busy as families arrive)
