All About Vista Mar, Alcossebre
Enjoy a holiday here in Alcossebre a really lovely unspoilt part of Spain. Alcossebre is located between Valencia and Barcelona. The stretch of coast is prettily known as the Orange Blossom Coast!
The house itself is one of 5 on a little row of cute Spanish terraces called Vista Mar (View of the Sea). It has 3 bed Bedrooms; 2 bedrooms have a double bed and 1 bedroom has 2 single beds). The main bedroom has a balcony looking out towards the sea. There is 1 bathroom upstairs and a shower room downstairs.
It has a separate kitchen and a lounge dining area. In the lounge area there are two small sofas, a stereo system, satellite TV (Spanish), a DVD player and a video player. In the dining section there is a dining table that seats 6. The lounge diner also has a ceiling fan. Just off this area there is also a large terrace where you can sit and relax during your evenings with a drink or take your breakfast outside and enjoy the warm climate. There is a paved garden area with an in built BBQ at the end of the garden. There is back gate access, which is great when you arrive back home sandy after a swim in the sea as you can hose your feet before you go in.
There is a fantastic large communal swimming pool literally under a minute out of the front door. Usually this stays nice and quiet, as there are not a huge amount of residents who are allowed to use the pool. There is grass around the pool so it's nice and soft for laying out your towel. There are poolside showers and a small kiddy pool. The tennis court is just a stones throw away too! There is also an additional shared BBQ and seating arrangement in the communal area and a large washing line in case you can't fit all your washing on the balcony.
There is plenty of parking at Vista Mar.

Private secluded location. Lovely accommodation, spacious, fresh, spotless. Walk out the door to the pool with the beach a stones throw away. Restaurants, bars and shops in walking distance; ideal for all the family. We all loved the pool and the proximity of everything. Great spot. Can't wait to return.
