THE TOWN AND WHAT TO DO/SEE WHILE YOU ARE HERE
NATURE - Alcossebre is the heart of the orange and fruit growing region (Costa de Azahar), which is bordered on one side by the mountains of the Serra d' Irta, and the sea on the other side. Along its ten kilometers of coastline there are five high quality beaches. They are all very clean and well kept, and the best one of all is only a 2 minute walk from the house! There are also various unspoilt coves along the way. These Mediterranean waters are ideal for water sports such as sailing, fishing and scuba diving, amongst others. Alcossebre is also a good base from which to explore the Columbretes Islands Nature Reserve.
FOOD - Local gastronomy is also highly varied, with fish and rice dishes being some of its most outstanding. There are in excess of 50 restaurants & bars in the area, which provide food & drink to suite every palette.
TOWNS AROUND - Within easy drive are the historic towns of Morella and Peñiscola, Also, make sure you visit the city of Valencia, the 3rd largest city in Spain that hosted the American's Cup 3 years ago. It has a lovely old town located right downtown called 'Barrio del Carmen'. Don’t miss it for it has incredible character. It also has the largest Aquarium in Europe located in the acclaimed 'City of Sciences' (can't miss this either!)
WATER AND THEMATIC PARKS - There are also many water and thematic parks around. The best water one is about a 25 min. drive from Alcossebre in a town called Benicassim, and it's called 'Acuarama'. You and your kids will absolutely love it!. There also 2 incredible thematic parks. One is located about 1 1/2 hour north and it's called 'Port Aventura' and the other one is about 2 hours south and it's called 'Terra Mitica'. There is also a Go -Carting in Oropesa, which is only a 15 minute drive.
GOLF - If you enjoy playing golf, you may want to know that there are two Championship class Golf course's within 45 min's drive of the villa, as well as a 9 hole course which is 30 min drive away. The first course is 'Panoramica' which was designed by Berhnard Langer. The second, “Mediterraneo” is south of Alcossebre. This is the older of the two courses, and Sergio Garcia's home course. The 9-hole course, also to the north of Castellon, is near the port area, it is a “Parkland” course, which is fairly flat but very tight.
SEE? Not only the house is beautiful and everything you need for an awesome vacation, but there is also so much to do while you are here! However, if you are just looking to disconnect from your busy daily routine and spend your vacation time reading, sitting by the pool, taking long walks on the beach, and just enjoying the delicious food, this is also the perfect place as you can find peace and quiet as well. It truly is a wonderful place and you will have a restful and memorable vacation.
