The BLUE LOFT: Magical oldtown

Apartment - Entire home/apt · Plaza de Mosén Sorell, Valencia, Valencia 46003, Spain

The Space

Charming, spacious and bright apartment with enchanting views, combining modern and old wooden furnishing. Located in a historic building, the apartment itself has been renovated in keeping with its original charm. Though it is literally in the very center of the city, you will find that the apartment is a quiet retreat, as it is on the top floor of the building, there is only one apartment per floor, and most of the surrounding streets are limited to pedestrian traffic (taxis allowed). Hand-cut wooden beams all over the ceiling and a bed made of logs by ourselves give the apartment an unique character.

Located at the 5th and last floor of a more than 100 years old building, you will feel much silence and tranquility . The walk up to this 5th floor pad will reward you with great views of the city and a relaxing time on the terrace. The terrace is also the perfect place if you need to smoke, since that's not allowed inside the apartment.

In the heart of the El Carmen neighborhood, next to the Serranos Towers and the valencian Cathedral, the apartment is perfectly located to discover the historic center and its restaurants, trendy bars, markets, museums, churches, shops and numerous places of interest. The apartment is very near to the Turia Gardens that will lead you to the City of Arts and Sciences, the modern part of the city.

The apartment is 65 sqm (700 sqf) in one big space that, through its triangular form, keeps the intimacy in the sleeping area. If necessary, it can hold up to 4 people with the use of the queen size logs bed and a really comfortable bed-sofa for 2 people. The loft has all comodities: an antique dutch kitchen, wood fireplace, gas-heating, dish-washer, washing machine, microwave oven, toaster, iron for clothes, hairdryer, water heater, fast internet wifi, starting supplies in kitchen cupboard, i.e. coffees, teas, olive oil, condiments, etc. etc

The kitchen is also fully fitted with casseroles, pots and dishes, and you will be able to cook the fresh, quality products bought at the markethall located right before the building. A set of towels per person and linen are provided for each stay. You'll become fresh towels and bed linen if you stay longer than 5 days. In wintertime there are firewood packages waiting for you, you can use them but, sorry, they cost extra!

The apartment is easy to reach and a short walk to all the the tram station "Pont de Fusta", where you can catch tram line 4 direct to the Arenas and Malvarrosa beaches. Just a 10 minutes walk away from home you also have the train station "Estació del Nord", the metro station "Xativa" to the airport or the international bus station. In front of the building you will find the bike rental station. For 10 € per week you can use a bike in the city. And cabs are in Valencia cheaper as you may think. Just ask for the price in advance... You will be surprised!

My sister Mariana and I, we will assist you with affection and all the help and information about the city you need, as for example parking spots for your car. There are maps and recommendations for restaurants, tapas, markets, public transport and sightseeing waiting for you!

All inquiries are welcome; English, Catalan, Spanish, German, Italian and French spoken. We can consider a stay of only 2 or 3 days depending on the dates. Please send us a message.

  • Hey, we had a great time at mensi's loft. Her friendly sister gave us the keys and showed us everything we need to know! You can explore the whole city very good by foot because the loft is perfectly located. Like on the images the apartment is beautiful and well equipped for cooking and a coffee on the terrace ;)
    perfect place!

  • The location of this sweet loft is realy great, you can find anything you need just around the corner (Mercado Central! Seafood, fruits and veggies, meat, herbs, you name it). On top of that you're in walking distance to most sights and can enjoy your breakfast on the terrace with it's beatiful view (if the weather lets you).
    The loft itself is equipped with all the stuff you need and has a nice flair all around.
    The only problem we had during our stay was the temperature. We were unlucky regarding the weather and since the gas heating didn't work it was rather cold at night and in the morning. Getting the place warm with just the wood stove takes some time (and only works for a part of the appartment) and you don't want to get up every two hours at night to fire it again.
    Other than that we had a great time and can only recommend renting this little gem. :)

    Response from Mensi:

    Thanks Stefan, for your visit and this kind review. We regret that you had to suffer the problem with the gas heating. It's solved now, but to compensate you we offer you a big discount if you plan a new journey to Valencia! See you again in Summer?

  • La casa é molto bella! La consiglio a tutti!
    L'unico "problema" (se può essere definito così) é la scala (esattamente 98 scalini) per arrivare al quinto piano, soprattutto dopo aver camminato per un giorno intero.. :)

  • Very nice people, Mensi & Mariana.
    A warm welcome when we arrived.
    These are two very friendly people that quickly search for solutions when there's a problem.
    We enjoyed the flat very much in the cute area of El Carmen.

About
Hello!! Fortysomething already (nice grey hair showing!), I'm a traveler, restless, curious, open, and I like to see things from my own and personal point of view In this time of my life I live in Mallorca, working as a german teacher in a public high school (I'm surrounded by kids several hours a day, which keeps me young in spirit!). I have a 12 years old daughter with whom I go every summer to cross Europe. Later we will travel abroad the continent. I always wanted to own a hotel, so now I begin this project with "The Blue Loft", the apartment I bought and reformed 15 years ago, where I lived until my daughter was 2 years old, the place in earth that best reflects my soul and my style and with which I feel very identified. I hope you enjoy the site as I love it. I like travelling and movies in the original sound, of course! ... My passion are the languages, I speak Spanish, Catalan, German, English, some French and Italian and studied Arabic three years at the Valencia University. In Valencia you will meet my sister Mariana. Between the two of us we organize the management of the apartment: I take care of the administration / internet and she takes care of the visitors and the place. Warm regards! Mensi S.
