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.

There was more than enough room, each bedroom well appointed, spacious and generous with Loewe bathroom amenities. There were tall ceilings on the first floor and many dining options inside including kitchen table, outside dining table and top floor large balcony. The kitchen was very well stocked with all cutlery, crockery, and other cooking equipment. We cook together as a large family and this enabled that comfortably. There was also a good amount of cleaning equipment, as well as washer, dryer, and clothesline. Despite being one in a building and within a central location, noise was not a problem at all. We quite enjoyed looking out the windows to the cathedral below with its soaring tower and street colourful street performers. Even with younger children, the design and decoration of the apartment were beautiful but practical and comfortable. The stairs connecting the two floors were not a problem, we just had to keep an eye on our new walker (1 year old) for this. We did face some power outages (which we fixed on the closely located fuse box by the front door) on the first day as well as the clothes dryer not drying, however, these issues were promptly attended to by our contact Celia. She was a gracious and amiable host. We had a very good experience with everyone at SpainSelect, especially our booking agent Lauren. Their hard work and professionalism elevated our stay at Micalet Àtico. The one slight glitch is the access to the bathrooms from the two bedrooms with ensuite. These are not separated by much. However, this was not a problem for us - it just required a little more careful timing. Not only would we come back but also we would very seriously consider all future accommodations in relevant Spanish cities with SpainSelect.

The beds were so comfortable and it was very quiet. Everything you need to make a perfect holiday is in this apartment. Lovely view from the balcony and it was easy to walk into the city or get transport to the beach etc. You couldn't wish for better owners, they responded within hours and answered all our questions, were on hand if we needed them and were so warm and friendly. We relaxed and enjoyed our stay here so much, looking forward to coming back again soon. Thank you for a lovely time.
