This stunning ground floor garden apartment offers a large private garden area with large terrace, ideal for eating and enjoying the balmy evenings, and also communal pool and gardens. Local restaurants/bars, supermarket and cash point are just a minute away. Close by there is a scenic beachfront wooden walkway to Alcossebre town. The fully air-conditioned interior has a master bedroom with king-sized bed and en-suite shower room. There is a second twin bedroom and a separate shower room. The sizable living/dining room is tiled and has TV and DVD/CD/Radio entertainment system. A luxury fitted kitchen features granite worktops, ceramic hob, oven, microwave, fridge-freezer, washing machine, dish washer, kettle, toaster and iron.

*** Breaking News *** Ryanair have scheduled flights from September 2015 from London Stansted and Bristol airports to the new Castellon airport which is just 25 minutes from the apartment.

Alcossebre is a small seaside town in the Valencian Community located just north of the city of Castellon between Barcelona and Valencia. It is on the Costa del Azahar (the Orange Blossom Coast) along the eastern Mediterranean coast of Spain in the province of Castellón. Along with close neighbouring Capicorb (Cap i Corp) just to the south and Las Fuentes just to the north, this town falls within the municipal limits of Alcala de Xivert. There is also easy access to the larger towns of Peniscola to the north and Torreblanca to the south - both around 15 minutes away by car.

Alcossebre is a popular tourist destination for the Spanish population and, unlike many other Spanish coastal towns, is unspoiled by very large or high rise buildings and the excesses of uncontrolled tourism. This small coastal town is located at the southern end of the Serra d'Irta National Park, with ten kilometres of coastline featuring high quality EC Blue Flag listed beaches and a variety of other unspoiled sandy beaches and rocky coves. There are four main Blue flag quality accredited beaches: Playa Carregador, Playa Romana, Playa Del Moro and Playa Tropicana, the latter shared with Capicorb. There are also three coves: Tres Playas, a set of three rocky bays separated by rocky formations, Cala del Moro (our favourite beach which is secluded even in August), which is separated from the beach with the same name, Playa del Moro, by a small dune and finally the Cala Blanca which is located near the lighthouse. The nearest of these beaches to the apartment, the twin beaches of Cala del Moro (a quiet shingle cove) and Playa del Moro (a popular sandy beach), are less than a minute's walk and just 50 metres from the apartment, with Playa Romana and Tres Playas also a short walk away within 200 metres of the apartment.

Alcossebre has a unique and very scenic palm-fringed pathway and wooden boardwalk (Camino De Atall) which carries pedestrians over the protected dunes and along the edge of the beaches into the town, with a variety of bars and restaurants to stop at on the way.

Pedallos, canoes, sailing boats, beach chairs and parasols are all available for hire at the local beaches. Playa Romana is also equipped with beach volleyball, beach football and beach rugby facilities.

The Columbretes Islands lie far off the coast, can be seen in the distance in clear weather and can be visited by boat. The islands are teaming with marine life and ideal for diving - see www.barracudabuceo.com.

Not only is the local beach within a 1 minute walk of the apartment, but also the local supermarket, cash point and nearest local restaurants and bars are similarly close by.

In the town there is an English speaking GP, dentists, pharmacies and clinic. There are also Internet cafes, DVD hire shop and the usual selection of shops and supermarkets.

Alcossebre has many restaurants and bars, mainly traditional and modern Spanish, but with just a sprinkling of French, Italian, Chinese and English.

There is a new lawn bowling club on outskirts of Alcossebre and there are a number of tennis clubs in Alcossebre with the nearest only 5 minutes walk away from the apartment with courts for hire.

Bicycles and pedal cars are available for hire at Las Fuentas beach.

The average annual temperature in Alcossebre is 16°C and in the warmest months the average temperature is 30°C. The annual rainfall is also lower than the average rainfall of Spain.

There are 3 Excellent Golf Courses on the Costa Del Azahar and a Fourth Under Construction. There are two professional standard golf courses within 30-40 mins drive of Alcossebre. Nova Panoramica (www.panoramicagolf.com) in Vieros is an excellent 18 hole Bernhard Langer designed course in with a large driving range. Club de Campo del Mediterraneo, near Castellón, also features 18 holes and is the home course of Sergio Garcia and is only a 30 minute drive away. Costa Azahar Golf is a 9 hole course in El Graut/Castellón and is about 25 minutes drive from Alcossebre. Doña Blanca Golf is currently under construction 6km away in Torrenostra, Torreblanca and it will be just a 10 minute drive from the apartment.

For cycling enthusiasts, there are good easy roads for cycling both inland and coastal.

There are ample facilities in the apartment's large basement garage for secure storage of golf clubs, bicycles and other sports equipment.

Guided walks are usually available except July/August when it is too hot - ask at tourist office.

Morella is a beautiful medieval walled town well worth a visit by car.

Nearby Alcala de Xivert is a quaint town with a newly restored bell tower and impressive church. It holds a weekly market and can be reached by local bus from Alcossebre or is just a 10 minute drive away.

Peniscola with walled castle, cobbled streets, many small restaurants and attractive beach is 20 minutes by car.

Benicassim Aquarama water park is 20 minutes by car. Go-karting is available close to Alcossebre at Vinaros, Orpesa and Benicassim.

Universal Studio's Port Aventura, one of Europe's biggest theme parks is just a 1 hour drive away.

The historic cities of Castellon, Valencia and Barcelona are well worth a visit and are all accessible by car within 1-2 hours drive from Alcossebre.

The nearest Airport is Castellon which has a direct link road to Alcossebre making it only a 15 minute drive away. Ryanair operates flights to Castellon from Stanstead and Bristol.

Others close by are Reus and Valencia with two further airports slightly further afield at Barcelona and Alicante. All are serviced from many airports in the UK and mainland Europe. All are serviced from many airports in the UK and mainland Europe.

Alcossebre is an attractive and unspoiled town on the Costa del Azahar (Orange Blossom Coast) in the Castellón region of Spain which boasts four blue flag sandy beaches and a number of pebbly coves. It is a popular holiday destination for the Spanish population with orange and almond groves evident throughout the region and close to Alcossebre in the local area known as Cap y Corp. Alcossebre is close to both Castellon (30 min drive) and Valencia (one hour drive) which are both good for shopping and Valencia in particular to view spanish culture and the european Grand Prix circuit.

Airports local to Alcossebre include Castellon (from Sep 2015) which is only a 25 minutes drive away, Valencia and Reus, both about a 1 hour drive away, and also Barcelona, a 2 hour drive. Generally the best flight prices from the UK are for flights into Barcelona and Ryanair into Castellon from London Stansted and Bristol.

Alcossebre is right next to Sierra de Irta national park and Europe's longest cave is about 30 minute drive away.

There is a Water World Park at Benicassim, a large Go-Karting track 10 minutes away on the outskirts of Peniscola and a further professional track 20 minutes away at Orpesa and the Universal Studios theme park at Port Aventura, all within easy reach.

A championship golf course designed by Bernhard Langer is also available only a 20 minute drive away and a further 18 hole golf course is within a 40 minute drive.

Skiing is also easily accessible being about a 2 hour drive from the apartment to reach the ski resort at Teruel. In winter the journey is well worth it as the resort, though small, is very reasonably priced and equipped with 100 snow cannon.

For the evenings, there are plenty of bars and restaurants within close proximity of the apartment or just a walk away along the scenic palm lined wooden walkway that leads across the beaches and plant rich dunes into the town. If you are feeling lazy you can hop on to the road train that runs regularly back and forth along the sea front. This bustling little town's facilities also include shops, banks, tourist information centre and internet cafes.

The famous and historical Spanish cities of Castellón, Valencia and Barcelona are also accessible by car in ½ hour - 2 hours.
