About Mrs Sheila Morton

I searched numerous parts of Spain to find a suitable holiday home.

Alcossebre was the last resort but it was here that I found my dream home,

Mrs Sheila Morton purchased this house in 2004

Why Mrs Sheila Morton chose Alcossebre

Superbly situated in a beautiful Spanish resort. This is not an ordinary holiday let but my own holiday home. I spend at least 4 months each year here.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to all amenities without having to use the car. Wonderful view from roof-top patio. Very private for yoga etc., or to take a glass of wine when the sun sets.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hello Sheila,



We spent fantastic holidays in your nice house at Alcossebre with our children. The weather was hot on the afternoon but it was very nice from the morning to the night, very different to our home weather. Our children enjoyed swimming, to practice body surf or to make sand castle. Our teenagers enjoyed too to go out on the evening, the house is perfectly situated. The market of the tuesday morning is very funny with the local producers, clothes ....

We visited Peniscola (We found a very good restaurant to taste the zarzuela and the paella dishes), Vinaros, Benicarlo and Valencia also, but the children were prefered to go to the beach of course.

We are going to keep preciously your contact information for our futures holidays, for our friends or for our family if they'll be interrested to spend holidays in beautiful house, well equiped, in a nice place.



Best regards

Dominique and her family

My Wonderful Stay in Alcossebre

  • 5 of 5

Me and my family had a wanderful stay in this house in Alocossebre. It was clean and well maintained.The location was great. It is near two beaches. We frequented the local beach every day. The house is close to all amenties.There are plenty of restaurants in walking distance and supermarkets. The resort is very Spanish.The Spanish have holiday homes there. The resort is lively, but not too busy. The resort is very friendly. There was plenty of space on the beach and in the restaurants. We went to a picturesque restaurant at El Pina on our lastnight. You can see a beautiful view of the resort from up there.

I am hoping to visit this house again. It was a real home from home.

I won the stay at this house through a Prima magazine competition. Homeaway are a very helpful company and the owner was very accomadating.

We were met by the key holder, who was very welcoming. She gave us some good local knowledge. I would recommend this property to anyone one wishing for a relaxing holiday. It is close to all the amenities, but it is in a quiet street.

The roof top balcony is lovely.

Valencia is beautiful place to visit too.

I am looking forward to coming back to this area again.

Mountaiun and Sea

  • 5 of 5

Very nice house with view to mountains and sea. Our family felt home from first moment. We can highly recommend the house if you like a quite vacation in a nice village. The assistence before our vacation and at arrival was excellent. The kitchen is good equipped and the kids loved to use the beach boards. Highlight for us was the patio, where we spend most of the time when back from beach.

Vacances à Alcossebre

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé des formidables vacances pendant 2 semaines à Alcossebre. La maison est très jolie, très agréable, très bien équipée et surtout très bien située. Non loin de la ville, des différentes activités et surtout de la plage. C'est une très bonne adresse pour passer de super vacances en famille et au soleil. Nous y reviendrons très certainement ! ...

Very nice holiday

  • 4 of 5

When we arrived, I was a little bit sceptical, because the house is located in the middle of the town, but it is realy very quiet. We stayed three weeks there with our three teenage child. The beach is very near. Even in July you will find lonesome tracks for riding and hiking in the natrual park.

The house is well equiped. Bed´s are a little bit short, if your are so long linke me nearly 2 m), but there is enough space on the top terrase or the living room.

You should use the jeep track near the coast and look for the small lonly swimming places.

This is the ideal house for those who wish to have the sea almost on the doorstep as opposed to a private swimming pool. If you enjoy a walk/run before breakfast or don't want to worry about parking/drink driving in the evening then this could be th rental house for you.

You will see different spellings of Alcossebre viz Alcoceber, Alcocebre, on sign posts. It is a charming little Spanish coastal town situated between Valencia and Barcelona on the Costa del Azahar or Orange Blossom Coast, as it is known locally.

There are no charter flights to this area, few high rises and it is relatively unspoilt by tourism.

Surrounded by areas of natural beauty Alcossebre is perfect for a laid back holiday, for enjoying sports such as golf, wind surfing, canoeing and scuba diving, or for enjoying the coastline and countryside, hiking and cycling.

There are three beautiful sandy beaches within easy reach, two by foot, and a marina with lots of bars and restaurants. It is a very family orientated resort and popular with families from Barcelona and Madrid.

There is an extensive range of shops, supermarkets and restaurants to suit all tastes and budgets, all within easy walking distance of the house. There are several cash dispensers, banks and English speaking GP's, a dentist and a large pharmacy.

Between the headlands of Marcolia and Capi-corp - a distance of only seven miles, there are a dozen bays, many outcrops forming rocky pools that are a haven for small children, and gentle shelving golden sands, which even in high summer, are never overcrowded and offer safe bathing for all ages.

Inland is another magical world and is easily accessible. Within a short drive you can be up in the mountains looking back down at the coastline. Morella, a fortified castle, is well worth a visit, not to mention numerous other hill-topped villages scattered all around.
