Just returned from a two week stay. We didn't want to leave! Lovely well-maintained house and gardens with a good sized pool. There was lots of lovely touches and attention to detail by the owners, including a welcome pack of basic food essentials on arrival and a garage full of pool toys, beach accessories and adult/child bikes. Beaches restaurants and small supermarket within walking distance. Alcossebre is a lovely small town/resort. Very relaxed and family friendly. It has all the facilities of a beach resort without being commercial or built-up. My six and eight year olds were in heaven with the pool with all the pool toys/accessories included so it was difficult to drag them away. As a result, we didn't get to see the local area as much as we would have liked. We made one day trip to the aquarium in Valencia which I'd highly recommend. Its roughly an hour and a half drive from the house. It is the largest of its kind in Europe and my kids were just blown away. The entry was expensive but worth it, we thought. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay overall and would highly recommend this accomodation.
The apartment is directly behind the beach and a 2/3 minute walk to town with a vast selection of shops, restaurants, cafes and bars, oh and ice cream parlours!
The apartment has just had a new kitchen and bathroom installed this year and they are really nice and well equipped. The SKY tv was welcome for the World Cup coverage alone. The terrace was huge and has a great view of the beach and is a perfect place to sit and relax after a hard day on the beach. There are a couple of sunloungers too. There is an awning so part of the terrace is always protected from the sun. The pool looked fine but we never used it.
Alcosebbre is a typically Spanish resort with a few French, German, Dutch tourists and a handful of English ones. Most restaurants however, have English menus but it's always good to try your Spanish.
Overall, a very good apartment in an excellent location. We had a car but you really could have a great beach holiday without one.
