The perfect family Spanish villa
From our initial message asking about availability to the actual stay we have nothing by praise for the owner of this villa. Extremely helpful, quick to respond and very friendly; we've been renting villa's for over 20 years, this was by far the best experience we've had for many a year.
The villa itself was perfectly located, we enjoyed the short stroll to the beach everyday. At night it was an easy 20 minute walk to the town. As a family of 6 (2 adults and 4 children from 9-18yrs) we found there was plenty of room and the downstairs bedrooms so large no-one complained about sharing. Every room was well appointed and very clean. The master suite upstairs was heaven, really comfy bed, well appointed en-suite and the views... it was a pleasure to wake up.
The children loved the pool, as competent swimmers they liked the fact it was quite deep at one end.
We ate in several local restaurants on the beach front, all very good (some recommended by the owner) and the children enjoyed playing on the sand whilst we had a Sangria at a great beach-side bar!
Valencia was an easy drive and well worth the trip.
Overall would really highly recommend.
Just what we needed!
We have just come back from a two week stay and have all had a wonderful time. The villa was very well equipped and spacious, you feel completely relaxed in the peaceful surroundings. We enjoyed days by the pool or at the closest beach which is a lovely little cove, more commercial ones nearby but we preferred the smaller cove which was only a short walk away.
The town had a good supermarket with everything you could need, we did BBQ a few evenings as they had a large selection of meat & fish but also a good choice of restaurants in the town. Our group had children aged from 2 – 12 and the villa was ideal for all ages. The owner was very helpful and accommodating also provided a very useful welcome pack before our stay. We hope to be able to stay again!
Great villa, lovely position. July 2018.
The whole experience, from initial booking to receiving villa keys, was free from stress.
The villa was as described, spot on.
The younger members walked 20 mins to restaurants near the marina,
the older members took taxis.
Would recommend this villa, hope to return another year.
Our thanks to William for allowing our
We had a great holiday, fantastic weather and thoroughly enjoyed staying at this lovely villa. Alcossebre offers a wide choice of restaurants and sandy beaches. William was very efficient and informative.
The vila is all as described, booking in was simple and no fuss, the villa was clean and has everything we needed.
Its a 20 min walk to the local beach with its bars and restaurant, there is a large supermarket 5mins drive away.
would recommend this villa and location
Thank you very much for the 5-star review! Much appreciated!
However, I must quibble with your beach distance estimate, as I suspect it is overly influenced by the route you took. Did you follow the road as there is a lovely little beach that is less than 10 minutes away as the crow flies. There is a path across scrubland that takes you there at the bottom of the hill. From there it is just 5-7 more minutes to Las Fuentes beach, along the coast. All the best!
Fantastic views, well equipped villa, quiet location
A sandy cove is a 5-10 minutes walk away. Four larger blue flag beaches are also within walking distance further south along the coast. If you're more adventurous go north and you can find rock pools, secluded sandy inlets and unbridled Mediterranean nature.
Nearest airports are Castellon (20 mins away, expected to open April 2012); Valencia (Ryanair, Easyjet, Iberia; 1hr away); Reus (Ryanair, Air 2000, Thomson; 1 hour 15 mins away; and Barcelona (Easyjet, BabyBMI, Iberia, etc, 2 hrs away).
The Aquarama water park is less than half an hour away, as is Sergio Garcia's local golf club. World class diving is available off the nearby Collumbrete Isles, with trips organised daily from the local marina (sailing, bike hire, water skiing, etc, also available here). Other local facilities inc beach volleyball, tennis, horse riding, paragliding, and a superb go-karting track. Top flight Spanish footy at Villarreal, Valencia and Levante is 40-60 mins away. Downtown Barcelona is 2 hours away.
There are several good restaurants nearby serving local delicacies such as BBQ'd artichokes or asparagus, as well as a range of grilled fish and paellas - from Valencia's standard meat and beans paella to rice with lobster or rice with monkfish, cuttlefish and cauliflower (We'll tell you where). The local fruit, cheese, wine and bread are also excellent. Facilities include a well-staffed walk-in doctor's surgery, a lively marina, tourism info centre, ball park, video hire and a full range of sporting options.
