About the property

2 bedroom, 2 bathroom apartment, 47 m2, free Wi-Fi, access to pools & tennis

2 bedroom & 2 bathroom apartment with free Wi-Fi perched in a quiet neighborhood on a beautiful hillside in Peñiscola, which is a small, historic town in Spain located on the coast in Castellon Province, 90 minutes north of Valencia. The master bedroom has a double bed with very nice mattress, and the 2nd bedroom has a bunk bed (2 X single beds). The sofa bed in the salon can sleep 2 more, for a maximum of 6 in the apartment. 56 m2 of living space. Fully furnished kitchen (refrigerator, oven, stove), and a clothes washing machine. The two terraces overlook a private community pool, a larger public pool, and our garden, and features a stunning view of the historic Peñiscola castle ('Castillo Templario Ponteficio') and the sea. The city and beaches are a 20 minute walk from the apartment. The apartment includes your own private parking space just steps away from the apartment entrance. Escape the congestion and noise of the beach to the peace of this scenic location in the 'Las Atalayas' residential community.

About Chris Hansen

American with Spanish wife, living in Memphis, Tennessee (USA).

Chris Hansen purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Chris Hansen chose Castellon Province

We purchased this property because my wife's parents reside in their Summer home in Peñiscola, March-October each year. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the many activities available in Peñiscola.

What makes this apartment unique

Excellent view, more peaceful than the crowded hotel area along the beach, yet close enough to beaches and the old city to walk or ride a bike. Guests will have access to a small pool belonging to owners of the apartment complex, or to a larger, very nice public pool with restaurant, bar, game room, tennis courts, and periodic evening entertainment. The public pool access is only 2 euros per person per day.

Peñiscola is a resort town, offering a thriving, multi-cultural atmosphere from late June through early September, complete with numerous local festivals and celebrations typical in Spain. For instance, an international-scale jazz festival is usually held in July, having featured such legends as B.B. King in the past. Early August always marks the return of the Baroque Music Festival, accompanied by a spectacular musical fireworks show. In mid-September, Peñiscola’s patron saint festival (Virgen de Ermitana) lasts for two weeks, and is a festival to end all festivals, including traditional Spanish dances, bull fights, music, fireworks, exhibitions, and horse parades! These and other events held throughout the year help the town pack a punch. Although activity in Peñiscola slows down during the off-season, the castle and surrounding old city on the peninsula remain interesting, active, open for business, and scenic year-round for visitors who prefer the more relaxed and less expensive rates of off-season travel.
