We have rented 4 apartments in Valencia in different areas in different price brackets. Last year was a disaster, paid for luxury based on the photos and it was anything but. So a bit wary of this booking as the pictures showed such a lovely apartment. We shouldn't have worried, these pictures don't tell any lies. The apartment is lovely and the roof terrace is perfect.
The owners Emilio & Jose are also fabulous. They got us into the apartment early so we could start our holiday asap. They have a full welcome package, food, drinks, information, full tour of the apartment and are always available.
We came in November for the MotoGP and stayed on for a weeks holiday. Getting to the train station on the Sunday was a bit of a mare as the metro doesn't start till later from this area, we usually get the 1st train. But that was a minor thing.
Being only a 5 minute walk to the lovely beach was what we wanted. As it was November we found that we could use the loungers on the roof terrace from 10am till 1.30pm. Then in the afternoon it went into the shade - which I think in summer would be much needed. You can use the terrace in the evening as there are lights. The smells from the herbs - lush.
There are stairs to the apartment and then steep stairs to the roof terrace.
The bed is a good size and firm.
Plenty of wardrobe space and alot of hangers
Kitchen has everything if you want to cook. There is also a coffee machine, great big fridge freezer.
Supermarket only down the road.
Second visit to the apartment. Ist class again, everything you need for a break, including beach towels and sun cream. Again left fruit, a bottle of wine, water, butter, jam. We were given a cava and some local produce as returning guests. The host are 1 st class and will give you any advise and are quick to respond to any problems with the apartment. Quicker than a hotel, they live in the same street. For us the internet was not working, they fixed it promptly, and treated us to the local horchata.
Lovely apartment with everything thought of to ensure a hassle free stay in the heart of a working class area of Valencia with excellent transport connections. Good local restaurants, but should you choose to cook, the kitchen is well equipped with the bonus of an excellent local bakery and market. Emelio is a great host who has made himself available with ready advice whenever we have sought his assistance.
We have booked again for a week in May. As the accommodation was in the ideal area near the beach and trams. In a residential area rather than tourist, with could local supermarkets and shops. Local market once a week for clothes ext. Roof terrace is excellent.
We enjoyed our break at the apartment. Lots of extras, were provided: beach towels, umbrella and mats, coffee, tea, jam, butter ,bottle of local wine and sun tan cream. The roof terrace is where we spent many nights and some afternoons.
2 nights when there was music next door from the culture centre , we listened to it on the terrace, totally relaxing. Many good tapas bars in the area and a good supermarket. We would like to go back in the future.
Such a great apartment, such wonderful and accommodating owners.. thank you Emilio and Jose for your gracious and welcoming stay in your lovely home. It had everything we needed and was luxurious in many ways with thoughtful and artistic touches. The area was interesting and authentically Spanish with a great market, fabulous restaurants and a local Spanish life experience in every way. The beach was terrific and we both fell in love with VALENCIA and cant wait to return. Just great for 2. Sprial staircase well worth the effort as the roof terrace is a real joy. Theresa and Gil
