Valencia is the 3rd largest city in Spain and is very popular with many tourists from all parts of the world. As far as we are concerned, Valencia is certainly not inferior to Barcelona or Madrid.
IN LOVE WITH VALENCIA
We fell in love with Valencia because of its cozy character. Valencia has everything: a beautiful, historic city center, beautiful parks (including Turia Park, former river, which has been drained and where a park has now been created), where young and old meet, enjoy a lovely walk or cycle through. Bioparc zoo with many exotic animals, various museums (best known: Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, city of art and science), covered markets with the most delicious fresh delicacies such as fruit, vegetables, fish and poultry (largest covered market in Europe: Mercat Central), many catering establishments (including several Michelin star restaurants) and kilometers of wonderful sandy beaches. And of course also shopping streets with the well-known shops and franchise chains, but also authentic Spanish shops. So something for everyone. There is plenty to do and see in this vibrant city.
By train you are in Madrid in more than 1.5 hours and in Barcelona in less than 3 hours!
Experience the relaxed Spanish atmosphere
You can enjoy a lovely walk through the green city parks, stroll through Europe’s largest covered Mercat central or one of the other markets that are definitely worth a visit. Visit the cathedral in Plaza de la Virgin, Plaza de la Reina and the extraordinary Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencas (city of art and science).
You can take the train to Valencia from Cheste (10 minutes from our location), arriving in the center of the city. (Norte station). In the city you can also easily travel by public transport (metro and bus). There is even a metro to the very beautiful and wide beach of Valencia. Or you can rent a bicycle to explore the city.
Just 3 kilometers north of Valencia is the village of Alboraya. A typical farming village on the east coast of Spain. Located in a quiet and rural area. And is known for its ‘horchata’ (unique, refreshing drink made from earth almonds (Spanish: chufas).
A nice place to visit is Horchateria Daniel , which is known for its delicious horchata. And then take a nice farton with it.
Valencia is not only known for its orange trees, but also for its paella and of course paella rice. This rice is grown in Albufera.
Albufera is a large nature reserve of approximately 21,000 hectares and is located south of Valencia. In this nature reserve you will find many rice fields and the largest lake in Spain. Not only rice comes from this area, but also eel.
Definitely worth a visit. We can help you on your way with excursions to this nature reserve (boat trip on the lake, paella lunch) for an unforgettable experience.
Also called little Venice, it is located in the municipality of Alboraya. It is a cozy coastal town with all colored houses and there is a quiet atmosphere.
Port Saplaya is worth a visit, enjoy a stroll along the harbor and the beach, visit a terrace or maybe take a sailing or supping course? It’s all possible in Port Saplaya.
In the summer months, an outdoor cinema is set up here.
