About This Listing
Typical Carmen neighborhood apartment in the old town in Valencia, totally rehabilitated and equipped. It has wifi and cable TV with access to many international channels.
IN EL CARMEN NEIGHBOURHOOD (OLD CITY):
Its particular strategic situation we must highlight its proximity to the Torres de Quart (2 minutes walk) and Serranos (to 5 minutes), to the Central Market, La Lonja and the Plaza de la Virgen (to 5 minutes), as well as the accessibility on foot to all the historical, administrative and commercial centre of Valencia. A few steps away there is leisure areas, local drinks, terraces, bars, fashionable restaurants and various shops that characterize this historic neighborhood of arab urban layout that expands between labyrinthine alleys and surprises the walker with nice and curious squares and places.
A short distance it has an extensive network of public transport services connecting with any point of the city, as well as La Malvarrosa beach and The City of Arts and Sciences.
Fifty meters there is a station of the public network of bicycles 'Valenbisi' and to another hundred meters, The Turia Garden. This garden runs through the 9 km of the old bed of the Turia river, now turned into a huge urban forest that runs through the entire city. Ten minutes walking we have tram leading to La Malvarrosa beach and the University area of Tarongers.
THE TYPICAL VALENCIAN BREAKFAST:
The typical breakfast in Valencia is coffe or tea plus orange juice and toasts with grated garlic, olive oil, grated tomatoes and salt.
At home you have for free: orange juice, milk, coffee, tea or infusion, bread for toasts, tomatoes, olive oil, garlics and salt, corn flakes, muesli, jam, butter, biscuit, sweets, cupcake (muffin), chocolate and honey.
In reference to vegetarian restaurants: We have to 50 meters from house 'La Lluna' the oldest vegetarian in the city (23th San Ramón street); to 100 meters from house 'La Tastaolletes', a creative vegetarian restaurant (6th Salvador Giner Street) and 'Ana y Eva' to another 100 meters from home, other valencian classic of vegetarian food (49th Turia Street).
The house that we present is located in a building of 1850 fully rehabilitated in one of the quietest areas with greater cultural offer of the barrio del Carmen. The building is located between La Beneficencia and the Valencian Institute of Modern Art (IVAM) museums and a few meters from the Centro Cultural El Carmen and the neo-Gothic church of La Milagrosa, now converted into the headquarters of the San Vicente Martir Catholic University.
The building, that maintains its structure, original interior and facade, is an example of typical 19th century structures that identify the most emblematic district of the historic centre of Valencia.
The house has all the essential to live and enjoy a few special days in this Mediterranean city. In the celebrations of Fallas (from 15 to 19 March), from the balcony you can see one of Falla monuments with more history in El Carmen neighborhood.

Nuria est une hôte très sympathique, nous avons été très bien accueillies. Son appartement est très agréable et possède une atmosphère toute personnnelle grâce à ses couleurs et sa déco qui passe par tous les continents.

Beautiful apartment in a authentic spanish neighborhood. Nuria is a welcoming and very kind host. The apartment offers everything you need for a very pleasant stay. There are free parking lots a short walk away.
Siamo andati a Valencia con i bambini ed abbiamo affittato la casa di Nuria dove siamo stati benissimo. L'accoglienza è stata molto amichevole. La casa è veramente carina e dotata di tutti i confort, dalla colazione ai giochi e libri per i bambini.
I servizi della città sono tutti a portata di mano. Il centro è veramente vicino e raggiungibile a meno di 5 minuti a piedi. Abbiamo visitato l'acquario ed il bioparco, entrambi facilmente raggiungibili con autobus o taxì dalla casa. Nuria, inoltre, ci ha fatto trovare un elenco di locali dove andare a mangiare veramente buoni e di luoghi da visitare. Consiglio vivamente questa location per visitare Valencia.
Nuria was a brilliant host. The apartment was perfect - fantastic location, very clean and loads of space. Highly recommend
Nuria nos ha recibido muy afectuosamente, y nos esperaba en el apartamento hasta nuestro arribo.
Nos sugirió lo más importante de la ciudad para conocer, y lugares para poder hacer pausas.
El apartamento es excelente, y con todos los elementos de confort para aprovecharlo de la mejor manera, y presentado muy ordenado y limpio.
El barrio es muy seguro y estratégico para comenzar los paseos.
Nuria was just lovely and extremely welcoming. She showed us how everything worked and pointed out, on her list, some good local places to eat before leaving us to settle in to her fantastic flat. Within half an hour we were sitting out on the little balcony enjoying a glass of wine bought at the excellent local supermarket. The flat has everything you need, including air-conditioning and excellent Wi-Fi. It is also in a quiet part of the old town where you experience life more as a Valencian than a tourist. You will have gathered by now that we loved the flat and, CERTAINLY, would book it when we next visit Valencia. As for Valencia it is a wonderfully vibrant city be you looking for culture, nightlife, good food, open spaces[The Turia is 5 minutes walk from the flat] or incredible architecture. Definitely add this city to your to - visit list and try to stay with Nuria. If you are lucky and the flat is available don't hesitate, book!
