There are 2 sunbeds and big table with chairs on the balcony. A/C worked perfect. We had a problem with hot water but it was sorted straight away. Bed clothes and full sets of towels were also provided. Apartment was clean and well maintained. Couple that look after it was very friendly and helpful. We got a car park space also. Communal pool was cleaned every day and was very well looked after. It has small area for toddlers. Estate is located 1.5km outside Peniscola centre. Car is a must. There is no path along the road and it's unlit so it's quite dangerous to walk especially in night time. At the time we were, Peniscola was very busy, so it was hard to find parking space after 7pm. There are two major supermarkets (one in town centre and other on the way out from town-closed on Sunday). The beach is clean, beautiful and huge, showers located every few steps. There is a big number of restaurants to choose from. We found two bakeries. Apartment is located in quiet area, perfect for families with kids.

Myself, my husband, son daughter in law and two granddaughters. This is a beautiful villa, very well maintained, situated in its own orange grove and close to the beach and amenities. The girls (aged 12 and 9) loved the large pool and diving board and would have spent all day swimming! The games room provided friendly competition playing table tennis and pool after a fun filled day. The villa was fully equipped with everything we desired. The icing on the cake was the fact that the villa supplied bicycles for us all and the ride along the promenade in a clearly marked cycle lane, towards Peniscola, was fantastic. This is still quite an undiscovered part of Spain without bars, pubs, discos and rows upon rows of tourist shops - and there were very few British. However, it is a beautiful place and well worth a visit. Didier was a perfect host, available when needed (we required a smaller bike for the 9 year old which he supplied immediately), but not at all intrusive. A very nice man. We were very lucky to find this villa and we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you
