Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in La Canyada - Palm Villa Valencia

3 bedroom accommodation with outdoor living area near to city center and beach

The accommodation offered is the upstairs apartment consisting of three double bedrooms, a luxurious bathroom with shower, jacuzzi bath, toilet, bidet and 2 basins, a separate toilet also with basin and bidet and an entrance/lounge area. The kitchen, outdoor toilet/changing room, lounge and dining areas are located outdoors.

You will have total privacy with your own private entrance, direct access to the upstairs accommodation and sole access to approximately 500m2 of plot with pool, kitchen, toilet, sitting/dining area and terraces.

Palm Villa is located in a generous, secluded and quiet plot, having an established garden. The outdoor space has been maximized to enjoy the Mediterranean outdoor lifestyle. The pool is quite special; it has an overflow perimeter that allows the water to be at the same level as the surrounding terrace. A jacuzzi capable of accommodating 6 people provides an overflow waterfall into the pool. The terrace surrounding the pool has an ancient olive tree and coco palms. Substantial, shaped cypress hedging gives you total privacy. It is south-east facing, getting the maximum possible sun exposure. There is generous space for the supplied sun beds. Directly off this terrace, is a modern exterior lounge-cum-dining area, complete with a kitchen/bar with all the mod cons, including a TV, dishwasher, etc. It has been designed to allow you to enjoy al fresco dining out by both day and night. There is a fantastic atmosphere at night with the ambient lighting and rainbow-lit pool.

The accommodation offers views of La Vallesa also known as “Valencia’s Lung”, a protected green area, great for nature walking or biking. This area is a Mecca to mountain biking. People come from far and wide with their bicycles to explore this beautiful area. There are direct links via bicycle track along the Turia river in to the center of town. This offers a unique way to explore Valencia. If you are looking for an active holiday, why not bring your own bikes or rent some of our mountain bikes. See photo.

Please see Google image on the photos to see the distribution. The accommodation is outlined in blue.

Palm Villa has the ideal location for your Valencian holiday. It is situated in the leafy urbanization of La Canyada. This is the oldest and most prestigious urbanization in Valencia having very close communication with the airport and city centre as well as Valencia’s famous beaches. Our villa is within a short walk from La Canyada village centre and its tube stop with direct links to the city. Valencia’s historic centre is only a short trip away as are the local beaches, restaurants, night life and art scene. For those that like cycling, there are several options for local bicycle hire.

The local village offers a huge choice of restaurants, bars and shops including some fine dining!

We are located within 5 minutes’ drive from the airport, which means that car hire is not essential and that your holiday begins 10 minutes after leaving the airport.

About Paul & Gema

We have been living in the area for 8 years and prefer this area above all others in Spain. We also have a villa for rental in the Costa Blanca which is quite different and offer a different life style.

Paul & Gema purchased this villa in 2006

Why Paul & Gema chose Valencia Province

We love the area for its relaxing atmosphere and close proximity to Valencia and all amenities.

As you come in to La Canyada, you will notice the welcoming feeling of the area with its leafy trees and well maintained avenues and public places.

Amazing Stay at Palm Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from our holiday at Palm Villa and it will stand out to be the best accommodation we have ever stayed in, it is clean and extremely well maintained, we wish we could pick it up and take it everywhere with us!

Paul and Gema are amazing hosts who looked after us extremely well and are there on hand should you need to call them . The little touches they add make it a really personal stay. Everything about the villa, the pool and outside area is superb. If it is possible we thought it was even better than the pictures! The outside kitchen really works and keeps you all together as a family. The Webber gas BBQ is amazing.

If we were to leave any feedback about getting around it would be this:

The walk up to the village and metro is about 15 minutes but each time we did it, it seems quicker. Behind the Metro station (ticket office side) you can walk through a park and there is a supermarket which is open all day. It offers everything you need for your self catering holiday and the fruit, veg and fish were gorgeous and fresh. (the accommodation has two shopping bags on wheels you can use)

The metro itself can take you anywhere you need to go. We brought the 10 trip ticket (11.40 euros) and once you have used 10 you just buy another ticket. The ticket machine is inside the ticket office, the English option didn't work but you press compare (to buy) then you choose your type of ticket (ie 10 trips) then your zones (we chose A&B as we just wanted to go in and out of Valencia City and visit Oceanografic).

To go to Valencia or Oceangrafic you need to be on the platform with the ticket office. You must swipe your ticket (one swipe per person) before you get on the metro as guards frequently check. That machine is just inside the ticket office.

Before we travelled we thought that we may need a car, but for us instead of spending 300 euros on a car + fuel + parking fees we spent 60e on taxi's to and from airport and 36e on metro for the week total 96euros! and we all enjoyed the experience.

A great holiday that offers a local village, nearby city of Valencia or stay in and have a pool day (pool and several sunbeds all to yourself~ perfect)

Out of the way. Nice pool and outdoor kitchen

  • 2 of 5

If you're looking for a family get away - perfect. Except the stairs for older or little folk. The town is a sleepy suburban train stop, and not much to see. There is a full grocery store to stock up, but definitely rent a car. Think of the most mundane suburb where you're from. The beds aren't all that great, actually uncomfortable, but the outdoor kitchen and pool is an interesting set-up. The owners are available. They charge for Wi-fi.

Perfect for relaxing in villa or sightseeing in Valencia

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a very relaxing stay at Palm Villa. As a family of four we found the downstairs outdoor living space had been well thought out with absolutely everything you needed. Loved the pool and jacuzzi. Cooling down, reading a book sitting in the pool on the steps was a joy!

Upstairs the bedrooms were pretty and also well equipped. The bathroom was large, modern and the bath was gorgeous.

Valencia is only a 20 minute trip away on the easily navigated Metro, we purchased a 10 trip ticket which you can top up when needed and use for whole family. You can ask for a small handy metro map at the station too. Lots to do and everyone enjoyed strolling around the old town and great view from the top of the tower next to the Cathedral. The best ice cream we have tasted can be found just down the road from the Cathedral. We also visited the beach and Marina via the Metro, fab beach and plenty of restaurants.

La Canyada itself has lots of bars for quick tapas, big supermarket and restaurants. The bakery was superb and we visited everyday!

Our hosts Paul and Gema were so helpful when needed and assisted us with booking taxis, local knowledge etc. wifi is also available at a small extra cost. We also enjoyed the sangria, thank you ..

We all came away happy and relaxed and will definately return to this wonderful oasis of peace and also to visit more of Valencia that we missed. Absolutely ideal villa to combine total chill out and sight seeing in Valencia.

Perfect Villa for Chilling Out Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from 11 nights at Palm Villa .... Wow .... just a perfect place to have a completely chilled out holiday

The Villa was exceptional, one of the best we have ever stayed at

Loved the outdoor facilities for alfresco dining in a very private secluded and peaceful setting

The supermarket was a 20 minute stroll, made easier on the return as the Villa supplied a shopping trolley so we were able to stock up with supplies

Paul and Gema were very helpful with advise on the surrounding area and information regarding the Metro and taxi's etc , not forgetting a very nice homemade Sangria , thank you

We visited Valencia and the Bio Parc both worth a visit, the rest of our time we were most happy just relaxing in a perfect setting

Just a note, the internet was chargeable which wasn't mentioned in the advert

We would definitely recommend this Villa and hope to return one day

Wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was set in a great location, 20 mins walk to the metro to Valencia and walking paths through the orange groves across the road. Very warm welcome from hosts Paul and Gema who kindly bought in inital groceries to start us off and also ran us to the supermarket fans local one was being refurbished, (now open again ! ). The local shops such as greengrocer so and bakers were very well good too. We were recommended a fantastic restaurant by our hosts , the Vaixhall, which was a one minute walk from metro and went twice! The villa itself was lovely, plenty outdoor space by the pool, lots of seating .Great outdoor kitchen, well equipped. The pool was super, deep in parts but gradual steps at one end for non swimmers to sit or stand on to enjoy the water. Very welcome outside toilet to save going into indoor living area when by the pool or relaxing at night outside. Certainly would recommend this property and hosts to family and friends and would like to return in the future. Thanks Paul and Gema for a memorable holiday .

Perfect villa and pool

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from the most amazing stay in Palm Villa. The pool, and surrounding area, is absolutely beautiful and the entire outside living space carefully designed to provide ultimate comfort and relaxation. The kitchen has every gadget and utensil that you could possibly need. We spent much of our holiday by the pool and in the seating area, of an evening, under the stars.

The villa itself is maintained to a high standard, especially the large bathroom. The 3 bedrooms are all of a good size with plenty of storage. They have electric fans which work well to keep the rooms cool at night. Two of the bedrooms also have air con, which was extremely efficient and only needed to be used for a short while.

Paul and Gema, the owners, were thoughtful, friendly and absolutely fantastic. From the first booking enquiry email, to our departure at the end of the holiday, nothing was too much trouble for them. They were able to give advice about the local area, offered to pick up heavy items from the shop (water, beer etc), made delicious Sangria and cooked us an amazing Paella. If we had any other queries, they were only a text away and always responded within minutes. The rest of the time, they afforded us complete privacy.

The villa is about a 20 minute walk from the local amenities (if you have a 6 year old with weary legs!). The village has many little shops, a larger supermarket just through the park on the other side of the train line, and a few cafes and little restaurants.

The metro was easy to use and only about 20 minutes to central Valencia. We bought 10-trip tickets which worked out far cheaper than the individual return tickets.

We loved walking around the old town, visiting the Mercado Central, the cathedral area, climbing the Torres de Serranos, and people watching in the Plaza de la Virgen.

We thought the Bioparc was wonderful, observing the animals in near natural surroundings. (But don't try to take in food, as it will be removed at the entrance.)

We also enjoyed walking along the Jardin del Turia to the City of the Arts and Sciences. The architecture was amazing. We spent several, interesting hours in the Science museum where there are lots of interactive exhibits for all ages to enjoy. A great Pixar exhibition was also included in the entrance fee.

To conclude, we can't recommend Palm Villa highly enough as a marvellous, relaxing base from which to explore Valencia.

Many thanks, from Michele, Paul, Merren and Florrie

La Canyada is the oldest urbanization in Valencia so it is very well established and it has its own village centre with local shops that are also open on Sundays. It is traditional for the Valencian people to come to La Canyada to do some Sunday local shopping at the delicatessens, excellent bakeries and butchers, take a walk down the leafy streets and often dine out.
