About Simon Draycott

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.

Simon Draycott purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Simon Draycott chose L'Eixample

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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.


Car: not necessary


The beach is a 10-minute drive away.


The nearest airport is Valencia. The apartment is a 15-minute drive from the airport.


Valencia City City including the historic district of Carmen is a 10-minute walk from the apartment.

Completo, céntrico, moderno, limpio

  • 4 of 5

Llegamos al apartamento entorno a las 4:45 pm. En seguida llegó el marido de Mónica para entregarnos las llaves. Nos ayudó a subir las maletas. Nos explico rápidamente el aire acondicionado y las llaves. Fue muy servicial. Nuestra experiencia en el apartamento fue buena, es un apartamento amplió, con dos habitaciones grandes, todo limpio y moderno, lo único que debería cambiarse es el baño ya que es pequeño y un poco viejo, las maderas del suelo se están soltando. Aparte de eso, el apartamento tiene de todo, horno, microondas, kettle, nevera, secador de pelo, aire acondicionado, lavadora, lavavajillas, etc. Las vistas son preciosas desde la ventana se puede ver una iglesia y es una zona muy viva. Gracias por tenernos!

Really nice stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment was well situated near everything we wanted to visit (15-20min walk to jardin del Turin and the city of sciences) and had everything we could have needed. On top of this, Monica and Simon were very helpful from start to finish and there was a folder in the apartment with all the information we might need about how things worked and guides for Valencia. All in all this made for a very pleasant stay and I would definitely recommend it.

Great apartment close to the city with all amenities and local market

  • 5 of 5

Stylish apartment within 10 minute walk of the city. This suited us, as we like to be out and about, but stay healthy. Having a large fridge freezer, and effective air con was great. The market is just around the corner and has everything that you need at around 1/5 of the size of the central market. The produce was amazing, tasty and fresh.

Thankfully, we were met by someone who took our cases up the stairs for us, as they are a little steep. The only issue that we had was an Ibiza style party 100 metres from the apartment in the street which went on until 3 am on the night before we were due to fly home. As this was for my mother's 70th birthday, it was not a case of "if you can't beat them, then join them!" This is probably the exception than the norm, and would not put me off visiting again.

Fantastic property, great location

  • 5 of 5

4 young(ish!) ladies descended on Valencia hoping for a few days in the sun. We arrived at the apartment which is in an ideal location and were greeted by the lovely Monica who handed over the keys and took the time to point us in a good direction for lunches, markets and nightlife. The actual apartment was perfect. It was clean, tidy and has everything you need and more. The lounge/kitchen is spacious, as are the two double bedrooms and the kitchen facilities are great. The owner has kitted out the place with guides and suggestions along with a bible that tells you all you need to know about the apartment. It's a short stroll to local supermarkets, bakeries and the old town where you can sit and watch the world go by or mooch round the shops. The beach is a short drive away and well worth a visit. I'd certainly recommend the apartment and the area for a real taste of Spain and will be heading back I'm sure!

The owner was also very engaged and quick to respond on all questions, all in all a fantastic break away!

Well fitted out and comfortable but

  • 3 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and is well fitted out with everything you need for a stay in Valencia. Unfortunately the support was lacking. We had to wait one and a half hours before being let into the apartment and it hadn't been cleaned prior to our arrival. The weekly supply of clean linen and towels didn't happen.
