When you are ready to get out and about, you can explore Valencia, which is Spain's 3rd largest city which enjoys a lovely coastal location. There is so much to see in this amazing city. A 'must' is to visit the futuristic Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, Bioparc Zoo & Jardin del Turia.
Valencia is steeped in history as the cathedral is said to be the home of the Holy Grail. Take time to discover the Barrio Carman (old quarter) with its old cobbled streets & plazas. There are many interesting monuments, museums & parks as well as lots of art galleries.
Other places of interest are the La Lonja de la Seda (the former silk exchange), the Bullring & Mercardo (the traditional, large indoor market). Plus there is also the modern marina built to host the America's Cup & old port to explore. Football fans should visit Mestalla (the home of the Valencia football team). Just off the A7 (near the airport) is the Bonaire shopping mall with outlets stores, hypermarket, restaurants plus there is bowling alley at the Heron City complex.
The Valencian region also has stunning scenery to explore with lakes, mountains, rural & historical towns & villages. Walkers will enjoy the Sierra Calderona natural park with its unspoilt sea views, pine forests & well marked footpaths. The Reserva Muele de Cortes is another lovely nature reserve.
Closer to the coast is the Albufera freshwater lagoon & the stunning long sandy beaches of El Saler. Try the paella at El Palmer (home of Valencian paella).
Take a winery tour in the nearby town of Requena, visit the warm water canyon at Montanejos, admire the Navajas waterfalls, or discover the historical towns of Xativa & Sagunto.
Other activities on offer in the region include boat hire, sailing lessons, wind-surfing, jet-ski, diving lessons, fishing, cycling, horse riding, motor racing events & golf.
Experience local Spanish culture & stay at the villa during a fiesta such as Las Fallas (15-19 March) & La Tomatina .. the tomato throwing festival in nearby Bunol (last Wednesday in August).
As there is so much to do in the area, car hire is recommended to get the most out of your stay as there is so much to see and do in this region of Spain. However if you just want a lazy, chilled out holiday to recharge your batteries, then we can provide airport transfers from Valencia airport, to the supermarket etc. Please ask for further details.
