Overview

About the property

3 bedroom house with large pool. 2 minutes walk to lovely main beach and 5 minutes walk to shops and restaurants.

The house is in a perfect location within a short walk of the fabulous main Alcossebre beach and the town centre. The house, which is on a small gated community of 28 has a private enclosed garden, upstairs and downstairs terraces and shares a large pool. The house and location are perfect for families or those who don't want the hassle of having to use the car every time they go out. Alcossebre is a lovely unspoiled Spanish town with fabulous clean beaches and a large selection of restaurants and shops. The town is a perfect base for exploring some beautiful, largely undiscovered, parts of Spain.

About Dave and Sally Derham

Dave and Sally Derham live in the countryside on the outskirts of Bristol. Dave runs his own coaching and consultancy business whilst Sally is a therapist specialising in panic attacks and phobias, working largely on the recommendation of local GP's. Dave and Sally have always been keen on property design and serious DIY. They have recently carried out their most ambitious project to date - a barn conversion, which they now live in. They carried out most of the building work themselves and found it a massive learning exercise! As well as doing therapy work, Sally works with a local rescue centre to rehabilitate problematic dogs which have been abandoned. Dave relaxes by playing guitar and rebuilding classic cars and motorcycles.

Dave and Sally Derham purchased this house in 2002

Why Dave and Sally Derham chose Alcossebre

We first visited the Cost Del Azahar in 1996 and fell in love with it immediately. It is a very rare jewel which has retained its genuine Spanish charm and has avoided the blight of mass tourism. Having spent several holidays exploring the area and looking for our ideal property, we finally found our dream and bought the house in 2002. Shortly after this, we both started working for ourselves and are now able to spend a lot more time in Spain. The more time we spend there the more we love it.

What makes this house unique

Alcossebre is a wonderfully relaxing place to be. We feel the weight fall off our shoulders every time we arrive! The character of the place changes throughout the year, which makes it very interesting. In winter it is quite quiet, but significantly warmer and sunnier than the UK. In peak season there is a real buzz about the place. We really like the fact that Alcossebre is not full of Brits - the majority of people there are Spanish, although there is a nice mixture of British, French, German, Dutch and Scandinavian visitors. Enough people here speak English to make life easy. There is a great choice of restaurants within a short walk. The beaches are fabulous. There is a endless list of great places to visit if you are the exploring type - which we are!

Very nice property and sorroundings

  • 4 of 5

The house is nice. The bedrooms have no aircondition which is a minus if you book your stay in july. The surroundings are very nice. The pool is lovely and the beaches are wonderful. Alcossebre is a very lovely little town, very family friendly.

The owners are very helpful.

Excellent holiday home.

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a week's holiday and would highly recommend it for a relaxing break in this beautiful part of Spain.

Dave and Sally were very attentive and helpful, and always quick to respond to any query's.

The house is lovely - clean and well maintained with a communal pool close by, and only a short distance away from the shops, restaurants and the beautiful sandy beach.

Would love to visit again!

Great House in Alcossebre

  • 5 of 5

We found the house to be exactly as advertised. In an ideal location, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. The house was clean and well equipped, perfect for a relaxing family holiday. The owners ensured we had all the information we needed for our stay and gave us the details of places to visit, some very good restaurants which we thoroughly enjoyed and were very helpful with any queries/requests we had. Alcossebre is a pretty place to visit, with lovely sandy beaches, we would recommend to family and friends. We hope to visit ourselves again soon.

This applies to the majority of the Costa Azahar, which is the main orange producing area of Spain. There a many traditional Spanish towns within a short drive as well as some stunning scenery. The towns of Peniscola and Morella are certainly worth visiting.
