About the Owner

My name's Simon. I'm 49 and a Counselling Psychologist who works in London.

I have a passion for all things Spanish and was lucky enough to have been able to take a year out to live in Valencia in 2000 to learn the language. I've been going back ever since.

Valencia, we will return!

  • 5 of 5

lovely comfortable, stylish and really well equipped apartment, just a 10 minute walk away from the start of the Old City. great area in the neighbourhood, Covered Market is brilliant, meat fish, fruit and veg, cheeses, the baker is underneath the apartment and the smell of baking bread curls up in the morning, cafes and restaurants a stone's throw away. We had such a lovely time at Simon's and still so much to see in Valencia we would love to visit and stay at his apartment again. We were met by Monica who let us in as arranged, everything was so well organised and we didn't have any problems, such a change for us!

Modern spacious well laid out & comfortable apartment with thoughtful extras & attention to detail which made the overall stay very enjoyable.

Good location only few mins walk from main train & metro stations. Easy to travel by local transport from Airport. In an older part of the city with good tapas bars & restaurants within a minutes walk but not too noisy at night. Local shops & markets very near . Great location to see all the city's ancient & modern sights and also a short bus ride to the lovely beach.

Highly recommended.

Great apartment central old town

  • 5 of 5

A great apartment set among the streets of the old town.Great views of the church from the apartment.There's a local covered food market for fresh food and a baker 1 minute from the front door.

We walked all around the old and new Town and found new things to do each day.The beach is a short bus ride away when you've had enough of the city.

The apartment itself is tastefully decorated and the beds comfortable.I would really recommend this property

This apartment is situated in the residential area of Russafa only a short easy walk to all the main attractions. There are plenty of Bars & Reastuarants close by so you're not stuck for choice if you want to eat close.

Inside the apartment it is tastefully decorated in keeping with the building and the open plan living area is perfect. Comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen

Overall this is the ideal location to explore the beautiful city of Valencia

This little gem is a real find. Simon obviously uses the place himself as it really was a home from home. Its not a small apartment. The bedrooms are a good size as is the living/dining/kitchen area. The bathroom would be described as cosy but it all works and its all spotlessly clean. Monica, the lady with the keys, and her husband were really helpful when we arrived. The bakery and the (quiet) bar on the ground floor were well used by us as was the amazing market just around the corner (don't miss out on this). There are some wonderful restaurants very close by. We were unlucky enough to have cold, wet weather while the UK was sunning itself in 25 degrees so the DVDs and books were a godsend when we got fed up with wandering in the rain. I would definitely recommend this apartment unless you can't manage stairs. On the 2nd floor with no lift.

From the Owner

I spent a year in Valencia to learn Spanish in 2000 and loved it. I particularly like this location (Ruzafa) as it has a real sense of history and community. Many of the buildings date back to the early part of the 20th Century. Other reasons for buying in Russafa are the fact that it has a wonderful food market, you can walk to the city centre in a few minutes, and the selection of bars and restaurants really is fantastic. In recent years a lot of artists and photographers have moved into the area which has added yet more vibrancy to the area.

From the Owner

The apartment block was built in 1914 and retains original features such as the wooden window shutters. It was refurbished a few years ago to provide a modern, open living space without losing its original charm. The apartment has a wonderful view of a local church, enjoys a lot of natural light and is well-situated for shops, markets, bars and restaurants. Everything is within walking distance, including the city centre. The beach is a cycle ride or short bus/cab ride away.
