The property consists of a small detached apartment (35sqm), on the ground floor of the family home. It has internet wifi, central heating, well-equipped kitchen and you can park safely your car inside our grounds. The apartment was rebuilt four years ago and it is a very cosy and well appointed apartment. It has one bedroom with twin beds, a toilette with shower and a small sitting-room area including a kitchen-office with a coach to sleep in. When the weather is nice (except winter days) you will be willing to enjoy the outdoor area. It is ideal for couples or small families wishing to rest in a charming and peaceful atmosphere. You can sunbathe next to the blue swimming.pool (salt-water ) while waiting for your barbecue, or sit down under one of the big trees, take a nap, etc.
It is surrounded by mountains and you can enjoy also the views to the sea. Benicassim beaches are just a 15 minutes drive, and you can enjoy the sea without its inconveniences: noise, crowding, high prices, etc. Instead, you will find it very comfortable to go to the beach and then rest quietly at home.

Castellón city has few tourist attractions, but Benicassim , which is just a 10 minutes drive from the apartment, has a full and varied range of activities for tourists: starting with the international festivals like "FIB" or "Rototom" or the "Francisco Tárrega"Spanish Guitar Constest, you can enjoy the music along the summer. The Town Hall programs also many other interesting activiites for tourists, like dancing shows, sport competitions, markets, etc.
But the best of it remains at its beaches, which are appreciated as one of the cleanest, longest and most beautiful in the Costa de Azahar.
The gastronomy is very rich and tasty, with hundreds of restaurants offering you all kind of possibilities. We like very much the ones in front of the beach, because you can enjoy at the same time the beautiful sea sights: do not miss visiting the Hotel Voramar terrace or the Torre San Vicente. You will not regret it. They are wonderful places even in the winter. And if you want to try the mountain landscape, you should know castellon is the second most montanious province in Spain. And the visit to the "Desierto de las Palmas" in Benicassim mountain range is very recommended.
All in all Castellón area is a wonderful place to visit, with warm winters and wonderful mild summers thanks to the Mediterranean influence. You will remember your visit because it will not disappoint you!
We live in a small reditential area. It has two small parks, a football field with a table tennis set where children can run and play. In the summer, we celebrate the local holidays with a week full of cultural activities and ammenities for the children as well as for adults: music concerts, gastronomic tastings, games, theatre plays, etc.
There is a walking track departing from the place and going to Peñagolosa, the highest mountain in the province with 1.860 metres.
There is a bus service which communicates the area with Castellón center every hour. But if you go on your own car, the trip will take you just 8 minutes.
