Modern, fully equipped apartment with landscaped gardens and large swimming pool. South-facing balcony overlooks Panoramica Golf Course.
The Costa Azahar (Spain’s Orange Blossom Coast) offers a fantastic experience of real Spain. Our fully equipped and beautifully furnished apartment has private landscaped gardens with swimming pool and a south-facing balcony overlooking the 8th fairway of the Panoramica Championship Golf Course. The Apartment (part of ‘Villa Dalia’) and golf course are nestled among fields of Orange and Olive groves close to the sea and fishing port of Vinaros, where an abundance of beautiful beaches, secluded coves, local sites and interesting places to visit can be found.
Villa Dalia is located within the private Panoramica Golf complex which has 24hr manned security gate access. The apartment is on the first floor of Villa Dalia and has intercom access at the entrance to the building and at the front door.
Private landscaped gardens surround the apartment building. The gardens and swimming pool are fully maintained. Around the pool area there are many sunbeds and two covered terraces near the BBQ. The oval-shaped swimming pool (Approx 10m long x 5m wide) is shared with the private residents of Olivos Del Sol and has a palm tree island, an adjoining childrens pool. Location:Panoramica is in an ideal geographical location for lovers of sea and the mountains being only a few kilometres from Vinaros, Benicarlo, Peniscola and Morella. There are 120 kilometres of coastline (the Orange Blossom Coast) washed by the waters of the Mediterranean sea. Quiet ‘Blue Flag’ beaches abound where you can enjoy over 300 days of sun each year with an average temperature of 26 degrees in the summer and 18 degrees in the winter.
Places to see:
Vinaros, Peniscola, Morella, Benicarlo, Barcelona, Valencia and many more towns and cities along this region of Spain are easily accessible for day trips.
Vinaros is the local fishing port town, bringing in fresh fish every day with King Prawns a local speciality. There is a fantastic market next to the seafront in Vinaros where you can purchase fresh fish, fruit and vegetables and is colourful with a wonderful atmosphere. Restaurants and bars are all along the seafront with excellent shopping in the town centre and plenty of large supermarkets on the road to the golf course.
Benicarlo (next to Vinaros) is also a seafaring town with the Nautical Resort providing a great variety of watersports –including canoeing, sailing, snorkling, diving and water skiing.
Morella is the medieval capital city of the region El Ports and is an interesting ancient walled town high in the mountains (approx 40 mins drive).
The nearby Ulldecona reservoir is an area of great natural beauty, ideal for hill walking and bird watching along with cave paintings at Polvori Cave.
Barcelona city is 1½ hours by car (Valencia is 1 1/4 hours)or both are easily accessible by train from Vinaros. Both are fantastic cities that must be visited during your stay.
A few kilometers along the coast is Peniscola old Medieval town with walls and fortifications surrounding the white washed houses and Peniscola Castle that housed the controversial 15th century Pope Benedict XIII. Peniscola has 7 kilometres of beautiful beaches with a lively atmosphere and many night spots. It also hosts the Classical Music Season and International Comedy Festival each year.
Columbretes Islands can be visited by a sea trip. These volcanic islands are a protected nature reserve but organised visits are available.
The Universal Mediterranea theme park ‘Port Aventura’ and ‘Costa Caribe’ water park are only 45 mins drive away or easily accessible by train from Vinaros directly to Port Aventura’s own railway station. This is the only Universal theme park in Europe and is a must for the young at heart.
Panoramica was designed by Bernhard Langer over 10 years ago and has now matured into one of Europe’s finest golf courses. At over 6600 yards off yellow tees and 5500 off red tees this is an excellent par 72 golf course built to Championship specifications. Challenging and attractive with water hazards on 6 holes this is a course you will want to play again and again. Practise facilities are known as the best in Europe with 2 huge driving ranges and a practise par 3 course. The clubhouse provides everything you could want including golf shop, bars, restaurant and changing facilities – all within 10 minutes walk of the apartment. Further afield there are also 4 other golf courses within 1hr drive of Panoramica and you will almost certainly want to visit Club Mediterraneo near Castellon - Sergio Garcias home club.
Apartment clean, spacious, views magnificent. Warm welcome with a bottle of nice wine. Car is essential to be able to go to the beach or visit villages. We dont play golf but the urbanization is also great when you dont play golf. Had the pool to ourselves.

A very pleasantly located property and generally very quiet and restful. Evening calm was occasionally disturbed by a dog barking and on a couple of occasions by some noisy late night neighbours in an adjacent block.
The property was very well furnished and comfortable and the owner provided comprehensive information about attractions in the area. The pool was very welcome in the late afternoon after a day out in the sun!
This is a lovely and unspoilt part of Spain and the apartment provided an excellent base for our travels during the week.
