About Keaton Lingard
My name is Keaton Lingard and I am 44 years old. I live in Chester with my nine year old son and our labradoodle. I work as a community nurse for people with learning disabilities.

Keaton Lingard purchased this Apartment in 2000
Why Keaton Lingard chose Alcossebre
I purchased the property 17 years ago. We fell in love with the area with its beautiful coastline and stricking National Park mountain range providing a dramatic backdrop to the town. Building restrictions have prevented the build of high rise apartments which dominate much of the spanish coastline and there has been much investment in the natrually occuring sand dunes which fringe the beaches. The beaches are fantastic, with plenty of actvities including sports nets, pedalos and rock pools to explore. Alternatively, due to the many sweeping stretches of beach in the area you can always find a more secluded spot.
What makes this Apartment unique
The area has a wonderfully relaxed feel to it, were spanish family culture can be observed and embraced. There is a pleasant evening coastal stroll into the town to indulge in people watching, great seafood and tapas and have a promenade stroll with ice-cream. There is a tennis club near by and miles of coastal and countryside paths to explore by foot or bike. The large balcony is good for nights in when the children (and adults!) are too tired to venture out following a fun packed (or relaxing) day on the beach, by the pool or exploring the local area and attractions.

Apartamento bien , entorno agradable, la única pega ha sido la falta de aire acondicionado.
Apartamento bien confortable, entorno muy agradable.
Un bonito lugar para pasar en familia. Playas muy bonitas . Rinconcitos con encanto.
El apartamento esta bien equipado y ubicado, pero... la comunicación en ocaciones fue lenta a la hora de recibir respuestas. También tuvimos algunos inconvenientes que no fueron resueltos por no estar presente el propietario. Pienso que falta una persona encargada, involucrada y resolutiva en la misma ciudad donde se encuentra el piso. Limpieza escasa. De resto todo muy bien como se ve en las fotos.
Séjour ok. Mais mauvaise information concernant le retrait des clés et l'adresse de la location.
Logement correct. Propreté moyenne. Absence d'adresse de la location et de communication avec le proprietaire. Comment récupérer ma caution100 £.
There are five beaches in Alcossebre. All beaches are blue flag and most offer sunbeds, water sports, volley ball, children's play area, football/rugby goals, and a lifeguard service in season. A wooden promenade which meanders through the sand dunes joins two local beaches. The nearest beach playa Romana (5 min walk) is a large cove long with soft white sand and shallow waters, and in high season is raked each night. The beach is popular with families and people of all ages.
Castellon airport in the new local airport and Ryanair fly there and this is 15 miles from the apartment. Reus and Valencia airports are both around 75 mins motorway (A7) drive. A car may be beneficial to enjoy the scenic area of Spain and numerous car rental firms are based at all airports.
