Villas, apartments and holiday homes for rent in Castellon Province

Castellon is the northernmost province in Valencian Community, comprised of three regions; the Costa del Azahar (orange blossom coast) Maestrazgo mountain region and valley region where the river valleys of Mijares and Palancia lie. From the beautiful beaches, coves and lakes, to the ancient cave paintings and historic walled city of Morella, Castellon is far from your run of the mill Spanish holiday. Steeped in Moorish and Arab history, the resort has a distinct historic charm, particularly in Peniscola, where lies the famous Pope Luna's Castle, once providing a backdrop for Game of Thrones. Discover a landscape of fertile valleys and groves of orange, lemon, cherry and almond trees, while the coast is home to some stunning coves and a 120km stretch of fine golden sand.

The capital of the same name is surrounded by Desert de les Palmes mountain range, home to the ruins of an ancient monastry, while the city is scattered with architectural monuments, from the Gothic Cathedral of Santa Maria to 15th century El Fadri Bell Tower. As you'll discover, there's much more to Castellon Province than the Costa del Azahur and Columbretes Islands; the vibrant festival scene of Benicassim, less than a 20 minute drive away is just one example. Explore our homes from home with properties overlooking the mountains, coast and historic centre, with villa and apartment rentals with private pools, family-friendly facilities and more.

A beginner's guide to renting a villa or apartment in Castellon Province

Castellon Province can be overlooked by holidaymakers in favour of the lively costas of Spain, but this stunning region has plenty to offer, from the wide stretch of beaches and coves of the Costa del Azahar to the endless water sports and historic Moorish and Arab remnants that provided the backdrop to some scenes of Game of Thrones!

Key places include:

Costa del Azahar, otherwise known as the orange blossom coast, is one of the lesser known costas. On the east coast of Spain, this strip of shoreline boasts over 120km of gold sand, wide beaches and secluded coves. Bordering Catalonia to the north, it is located in-between Barcelona and Valencia and is surrounded by two nature reserves; Prat de Cabanes-Torreblanca and Sierra de Espadan. An authentic Spanish and family-friendly destination, there are many Blue Flag beaches to enjoy, while the port towns of Vinaros and Benicarlo are just a stone's throw away.

Peniscola is a picturesque, ancient town known for being the home of 12th century Pope Luna's Castle, where you can enjoy beautiful views of the surrounding city and Mediterranean. It also boasts two beautiful calm water beaches; Pebret and Norte.

Castellon city, also known as Castellón de la Plana, is the capital of the province and is steeped in history and authentic Valencian charm. Take a trip back in time with Santa Maria Cathedral and 18th century El Fadri Bell Tower in the main square. Pinar beach is a stone's throw away, surrounded by pine forests and is the perfect place for water sports. Kids will love a visit to 19th century Ribalta Park with its large pond and water fountains. In the evenings you'd be hard pressed to find any pubs or English restaurants; you've entered an authentic region of Spain and that's part of its charm. Immerse yourself in the local culture and enjoy a tradtitional rustic meal.

Benicassim Just a 20 minute drive along the coast, surrounded by Desert de les Palmes mountain range, the beach resort of Benicassim is where you'll find the music festival crowds and young, free and singles looking to party under the Mediterranean sun. The coastal area Las Villas is home to a fantastic selection of beaches, while those who prefer a spot of sightseeing can explore the route of Las Villas, taking you through some of the most important architectural buildings of the region.
