Make a holiday apartment in El Pla del Real your home away from home

Just east of the historic heart of Valencia, El Pla del Real holiday apartments are in a prime location, with easy access to many of the city’s highlights like Barri del Carme, the City of Arts and Science and – of course – great beaches. Here, in one of the trendiest parts of the city, the interiors at El Pla del Real holiday homes are suitably sleek; decoration is elegant, and useful comforts and appliances like air-con and dishwashers are provided. Despite their proximity to Valencia’s big sights, holiday apartments in El Pla del Real are found on peaceful, safe and residential streets, well suited to families.

Things to do

-Beaches: Very convenient to El Pla del Real is Playa de Malvarossa, which is a fantastic urban beach extending for more than a kilometre. With Blue Flag status, the sands and water are both spotlessly clean and there are also great shops and restaurants close at hand. South of the city is El Saler beach, which serves as a less frequented choice and is part of a natural preserve.  

-History: To get a feel for Valencia’s long history, the main place to go is Barri del Carme, which today is known for its forward-thinking inhabitants and exciting independent shops. The Cathedral is a beautiful melange of styles, bringing together Moorish, Baroque and neo-classical elements. The Silk Exchange (Llonja de la Seda) is a UNESCO-listed landmark, and a fabulous example of medieval Valencian Gothic architecture.

-Attractions: The City of Arts and Science is a futuristic complex of educational attractions and performance venues. The architecture is really something to behold, and within the structures are good options for family days out, including an IMAX theatre, aquarium, a planetarium and an interactive science museum.  

-Food and drink: Valencia is the home of the perennially popular Spanish dish, paella. This is rice infused with saffron and simmered with meat and/or seafood. The local variety normally involves rabbit and chicken. Arròs negre is another tasty rice dish; it takes its name from the squid ink that is used to dye the rice black. Fideuà is another regional speciality, and has the same basic ingredients as seafood paella, but using short noodles instead of rice.  

-Fallas: Mid-march is a special time to be in the city, as this is when one of Spain’s most memorable public celebrations takes place. Fallas is a literal explosion of sound, colour and lots of gunpowder, also entailing parades of huge papier-mâché models, which are incinerated on the final night at an event called La Cremà.  

Weather in El Pla del Real

Holiday homes in El Pla del Real are in a coastal Mediterranean city, which gets warm or mild weather throughout the year. There’s weather appropriate for the beach between May and October, with temperatures that peak in the 30s in July and August. These two months bring almost no rainfall, but it does get slightly wetter as autumn approaches. Temperatures slip down slowly after September, and it is often still very warm here in late-October. Come December there are highs of around 15°C.

Just wanted you to know ...

4 of 5
Just wanted you to know that we had a great time in Valencia, the location of the apartment was excellent, and we made use of the Orange Club and the local patisserie. Unfortunately there were a few things that could be improved and I didnt want to put anything negative on trip adviser but i think the apartment needs a little tlc. Love the fact that we all had our own room, however the pillows and mattresses were hard and just having white sheets/towels rather than dark brown make a difference, epsecially to ladies! The air conditioning unit didnt work in the main kitchen dining area, and the main bathroom shower wouldn't drain properly and is prone to flooding if you are not careful. In the front bedroom paint was peeling off the ceiling and actually fell off in large quantities one morning, and the shutter door in that room also doesnt shut properly. There is also no light working in the hallway outside of the property. The positive side was that the property had everything we needed, even the fact that washing up liquid and toilet rolls had been left for our arrival. A full length mirror would look great in that lovely long hallway. Sorry to sound so negative, we had a lovely time overall and Mario was great on our arrival. Thanks for ordering our taxi too! x
