Whilst I'd seen all the photographs, nothing quite prepares you for the views once you step on to the terrace. They really are incredible, both day and evening. It's difficult to drag yourself away as it really is quite mesmerising.
The villa has everything you could require (including wi-fi), and we found it a very comfortable base for a week in August. It was so refreshing to have a good sized pool to have a proper swim in, although those with younger children need to remember there's no shallow end. It does however, have a separate baby pool. Again, the wonderful vista of the sea makes the pool area even more special.
This is an ideal spot for two families to have one villa each (the pool sits between the two), but helpfully, the owner doesn't rent the smaller villa when the main one is rented - meaning privacy is assured.
The busy little resort of Alcossebre is very good for beaches and seems to be mainly frequented by the Spanish. It's got a pleasant laid-back atmosphere and we happened upon a great market one evening too.
We don't normally like to return to the same place twice but writing this review has made me desperate to return to this villa! I think finding a view as good as this on the whole of HomeAway would be a tall order.
Thanks very much for your help whilst there William.
