Godlletta - Valencia, Spain

Beautiful, unspoilt countryside and mountains surround Godelletta, perfect for walkers, ramblers and hill-climbers. For the less energetic the beautiful beaches of the Costa’s are within an hours drive. Visit the golf courses at El Bosque ranked 5th in Spain or El Saler ranked 3rd. Choose to go when one of the many festivals are on such as La Fallas- in March in Valencia where huge street parties are held with incredible fireworks and burning of La Fallas ( papier mache effigies of famous people) on the last day or La Tomatina- the biggest tomato throwing fiesta in the world, held on the last Wednesday in August in Bunol. Traditional dresses and costumes are still worn at the fiestas.

Visit Ricardo Tormo racing circuit which hosts the superbike MotoGp which is just down the road in Cheste or pop into Bunol for the main line train to Valencia or Madrid. Valencia City is a must, beautiful architecture, and one of the oldest markets in the world – take the tour bus to ensure you see everything. Valencia will host the Americas Cup for the 2nd time in 2009.

Whilst in Bunol visit Venta Pillar restaurant, an old converted coaching house which was featured on BBC radio 4 for its authentic paella which you can watch being cooked on the open fires in the courtyard. Visit the open market held every Friday here and buy fresh fruit and vegetables. The open air auditorium with its backdrop of natural rock holds many musical concerts in the summer and is a lovely way to spend a summers evening.

See the modern and old architecture in Turis and stop for dinner at La Font restaurant for delicious authentic Spanish meals in this lovely family run restaurant.

Visit Requena and see the underground caves where the wine was stored in the lovely old town – go on the wine route and see all the wine producing towns in the area. Many of the towns still hold bull runs!

If you want to shop until you drop visit Bonaire shopping mall – the biggest in Spain where you will also find cinemas, ten pin bowling and restaurants situated on the main A3 Valencia /Madrid motorway – which gets you anywhere in the area that you want to go fast!

If you want peace, tranquillity, beautiful countryside and authentic Spanish life just 40 minutes away from the airport the Godelletta area will be perfect for you.

Godelleta and the countryside just inland from Valencia

When you first arrive at your holiday destination, first impressions are important. Visitors to the Godelleta countryside are always pleasantly surprised by how green and pretty the landscape is. Godelleta is a typical small, sleepy Spanish agricultural town clinging to hillside very close to the vibrant city of Valencia. Set in rolling countryside, it is surrounded by orange groves, peach trees, vines and pine forest. Life here revolves around the seasons; the orange harvest in winter and early spring, summer festivals and the autumn grape harvest.

Godelleta is a lovely place to relax and get away from it all. Tractors laden with fruit trundle down country lanes and the pace of life is slow and gentle. Yet its proximity to motorway links put Godelleta less than 30 mins away from the historic city of Valencia and the unspoilt beaches of the El Saler and Albufuera national parks.

Just outside Godelleta lies the prestigious El Bosque golf course. This 18 hole course is considered one of the grandest in Spain and has a restaurant open to non-members with spectacular views. But for local cuisine the best and most popular restaurant is the Mirador in Cumbres de Calicanto, 8kms from Godelleta. This friendly, family-run restaurant features a large outdoor terrace, lovely for dinner or tapas on a warm summer night. The 3 course lunch menu is fantastic value for money and is available every day of the week. It also has a take-away service for traditional, Valencian paella, cooked over pine logs and provided in the huge paella pan it has been cooked in. Don't forget to end your meal with a glass of Godelleta's famous, sweet moscatel wine.

Having Valencia City so nearby, with Europe's biggest aquarium, Bio park zoo, historic sites and F1 street circuit is very appealing. But the small town near Godelleta are also interesting, especially for fiestas. A ten minute drive brings you to Cheste and Chiva. Cheste's winding, narrow streets lead you to a magnificent basilica in the centre of the town. Chiva, Cheste and Godelleta all have festivals featuring bull-runs during the month of August. However, these are not dangerous and visitors are welcome to join in. Drive just 17kms from Godelleta and you will reach Bunol. A pretty little town, Bunol has a music and film festival in winter, but it is really famous for its August tomato throwing festival- sticky and smelly but unmissable!

Further inland from Godelleta the scenery becomes mountainous and spectacular. This is Requena, the oldest wine growing region in Spain and a popular resort with Spanish holidaymakers. The walled town of Requena features a ruined castle, knights houses and a restored medieval church. Beneath this ancient town lie caves which can be accessed via the tourist office in the old town square. Enjoy wine tasting in the numerous bodegas or come to the wine festival in August or the sausage festival in February.

For those who enjoy a bit of high speed excitement, the Ricardo Tormo motor racing circuit hosts year round events. The world superbike championships take place here in April and October features the final race in the MotoGP calendar. There are also touring car championships and F1 challengers throughout the year. The circuit lies between Godelleta and Cheste. Further information on all the events can be found on the Ricardo Tormo website.

Godelleta then is an ideal, year-round base for exploring the area just inland from Valencia and the magnificent city and beaches nearby.

Perfect apartment for a city break

5 of 5
From beginning to end of the booking it has been a very smooth process. Excellent communication from Luis at all times. The apartment is perfect, spacious, clean and a good location too. So nice to have shampoo and shower gel etc for us to use in the apartment so we didnt need to take our own although we did take some things with us which we have left behind for others to use such as suntan lotion. It takes about half hour to get to the airport via the metro, very easy journey. 17 minute walk to the Market (we timed it) which is a good starting point for the old town - it is open from 8 am until 2.30 pm. We got lost on arrival coming out of Angel Guimera station so more specific directions would have been handy but we found it after quite a walk. Plus the front door is stiff, as explained in the Tenants Notes, so persevere because we thought we couldn't get in. Angel Guimera station is quite large and there are several exits. Finding the correct exit will make your walk to the apartment much easier. Ask Luis for the exact name of the exit as I can't remember it but I know you have to walk through one section of the station to another part of it and along a different platform before exiting. The metro takes you to the beach which is huge and has s selection of umbrellas, sun loungers or just miles and miles of sand to sit on. We dined in the Marina Beach club which wasn't expensive. The apartment feels like home and has everything you would expect in your own home such as iron, hairdryer, airer, toaster, DVD etc etc. Beds were comfy and clean. The Danish supermarket is brilliant and Luis is correct in saying buy the ugly oranges they give so much juice. Thank you Luis for renting out your lovely apartment.

Clean, well equipped villa with beautiful garden

5 of 5
We'd never been to Valencia before and we found this property a wonderful base from which to explore the city, the coastline and the fabulous countryside in this lush part of Spain. Our flight arrived late at night and were delighted that the drive from the airport was only around 20 minutes. The owners had left some essentials in the fridge for us, which was very welcome, along with a bottle of Cava and a box of chocolates, as well as some ice-creams for the children, for us to enjoy before going to bed. Nice touch. We could not fault this property. The kitchen and the summer kitchen are equipped with everything you could possibly need, there is plenty of fresh linen and towels (including beach towels) available and there are portable air conditioners for each of the bedrooms. Thanks for a wonderful holiday and we can't wait to return.
