It is a GREAT apartment, very well located and equiped in a historic building and area.
The apartment is located in the heart of El Carmen, the most beauriful area of old Valencia. Near to boutique shops, bars, restaurants and shops. Its is very well equiped and refurbished in a very modern way. All the equipment is highly modern and fashionable. Fransisco, the owner is very helpful. Amazing place.
Comes highly recommended!
This was the fourth consecutive year me and my husband started our summer vacation in Valencia, and we were both sad when the flat we previously had rented suddenly disappeared from Homeaway. However this is what we in Norwegian call "luck in bad luck": Francisco's flat was just perfect for the two of us! It has all you need for a summer stay (we stayed ten nights and cooked at home half of the time): a good kitchen with all you might need to cook a good meal, a good bed, lovely bathroom, air condition, tv, etc.... and probably one of the lovelies roof terraces in town. Many flats have flowers on the picture, but not in real life. This was not the case with this flat, and that made it even more pleasant. I'm sure, if we decide to come back to Valencia next year, that we will contact Francisco again: Comes highly recommended! It is also worth mentioning that Francisco and his wife were both very professional and answered all our questions straight away – we really didn't have to worry about anything.
Really enjoyable stay, great location
Location is excellent, loved staying here.
excellent in every respect
My husband and I stayed at this apartment in December/January and have already decided we’ll return - we loved the city, and this perfectly located, well-designed rooftop apartment near the edge of the old town so much.
The location is perfect: plenty of bars and restaurants, yet relatively quiet, with a decent selection of shops and small supermarkets in the surrounding streets - and the Central Market and its astonishing array of fresh produce is only a 10 minute stroll away. The main city square is only a 15 minute walk through the beautiful old town. We only used a bus once, to go to the City of Art and Sciences.
On arrival, we received a warm welcome from Francisco’s assistant Empar, who made sure we were settled in and provided us with an information sheet on what to see, where to eat, how to get there etc… When we had a teething problem with our WiFi connection, Francisco came to sort it out immediately - excellent support.
The apartment is very well-appointed. Everything was clean, and heating, air-conditioning and appliances were easy to figure out. There were teas, coffees, spices, plenty of cooking equipment, coffee machine, guide books, tourism leaflets, TV, BluRay player, stereo etc… we felt very well catered for. There was everything we needed, and more than we’d anticipated.
Three windows look out onto a sizeable balcony (with sun beds, wooden table/chairs, plants and flowers - even power sockets) with a fantastic view. Listening to the old church bells in the early evening was so relaxing.
The climb up to the 5th floor is maybe worth a mention - but we’re in our late 50s and it wasn’t a problem.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this apartment, and in the city of Valencia. Many thanks to Francisco and Empar for helping us to make our holiday in your wonderful city very special!
Great Flat in an Amazing Location
My wife and I staid in Valencia for four days in late March. We booked this flat due to its proximity to the El Carmen area of old town. We were not disappointed. All of the great restaurants and plazas were within easy walking distance of the flat. The view from the terrace is great as you can clearly see a local landmarks and get your orientation very easily.
The flat is comfortable and well light with numerous windows in all areas. There are curtains and drapes to darken the space if you want to sleep late. The majority of the windows open to create a nice cross breeze if needed and you can then also expiernece the sights and sounds of the city around you.
We did not use the kitchen area as we enjoyed the local restaurants for our meals, but it appeared well appointed with a nice array of cutlery and kitchen implements. There was also a coffe maker for those who enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning.
The bathroom was spacious and included a nice front loading wash machine and there was a small amount of laundry detergent available in the pantry. In addition there was a folding drying rack as there is no clothes dryer. The water pressure was good and there were no issues with the hot water supply. The tap water was drinkable, though it does taste like its a munciple water source.
The only downside to the flat is the lack of the lift and the need to climb a lot of stairs to reach it. This would be very difficult for those with injuries, the elderly or those with small children. We did not mind as it gave us an excuse to eat more of the delicious local food since we would be burning the calories going up the stairs! In all seriousness the stairs are a small price to pay for this nicely appointed flat and great terrace views.
If we ever find our way back to Valencia we would absolutely be staying here again! Thank you Francisco for your hospitality and your constant communication prior to our arrival!
