Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

2 restaurants, laundry and doctor's inside the housing estate (20 metres away from the apartment), supermarket and more restaurants 100 metres away, tennis and padel club 200 metres away, village centre at 1,500 metre distance, many possibilities for the bicycle (BTT or road, you can rent bikes in the village, near the beach named "Las Fuentes"). Many English and French families with kids inside the housing estate, you can use both languages everywhere.
The village is located between the city of "Oropesa del Mar" to the South (15 Km) and the tourist "Peñíscola" to the North (25 Km, impressive castle to visit). The village has three long and wide white sand beaches with very warm water. From here you can visit the big tourist city of Valencia (120 Km South, 1 hour 15 minutes) or the famous theme park "Port Aventura" in Salou (140 Km North).
How to get here: fly to Valencia airport and rent a car for one week (about 225 Euros), then take the big Mediterranean motorway towards Barcelona-Castellón (Northbound), and exit at "Torreblanca-Alcossebre" way out number 44 after 1 hour travel. From here we'll give you a map.
If you don't want to rent a car, you can go from Valencia airport to Alcocebre by taxi (180 Euros go + 160 Euros return).
You can also fly to Reus airport in Tarragona province (probably cheaper than Valencia) and drive southbound along 200 Km until Torreblanca-Alcosebre through the Mediterranean motorway.
