SUPER LUXURIOUS APARTMENT IN CITY OF ARTS AND SCIENCES, VALENCIA

Valencia Old Town Apartment Rental Photos and Description

3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 6

The perfect place to combine beach and city! The City of the Arts and Sciences in Valencia is a spectacular creation. The buildings in this imposing leisure and culture centre designed by Santiago Calatrava comprise an avant-garde image. Your apartment is right in the middle of all this! Brand new, fully equipped, perfect for a work-pleasure combination because you have the use of a computer with a very fast broadband connection, a phone for incoming calls and El Corte Inglés next door. You are in the bustling centre of Valencia, yet only minutes away from the beach, nature parks, golf courses and a water attraction park.

Your home away from home has air-conditioning, central heating, TV, DVD, a computer and wi-fi access. The kitchen is fully equipped with dishwasher, microwave, oven, washing machine and clothes dryer. There are 3 bedrooms, one double, two twins and two full bathrooms. The complex now has a pool too! Free parking in underground garage. 24 hour caretaker present.

City of Arts and Sciences: The City of Arts and Sciences, developed by Santiago Calatrava, is a large-scale urban recreation centre for culture and science, which also incorporates L’Oceanogràfic, an underwater city designed by the late Felix Candela.

Set in the old dried-up riverbed of the Turia, midway between the old city of Valencia and the coastal district of Nazaret, the City of Arts and Sciences covers an area of 350,000 square meters.

Following a disastrous flood in 1957, the river was diverted along a canal to the south of the city, and the dried-out riverbed planted as a 7 kilometre long promenade through the centre of the city. The promenade is crossed by two streamlined new bridges designed by Santiago Calatrava.

This impressive architectural ensemble brings new focus to an incoherent and underdeveloped area, while linking and providing a marker for the outer areas of the city.

Golf: El Saler: The course is situated in the Albufera Nature Park on the shores of the Mediterranean, just south of the city of Valencia. It is laid out on terrain dotted with pine trees and sand dunes, with the last few holes looking very much like a typical English course.

El Bosque: Just 15 minutes from Manises airport and 25 minutes from the city centre. It has an 18-hole round located on very undulating terrain, the fairways are narrow and there is abundant local vegetation.

Escorpion: Located in a lovely valley, surrounded by small hills covered with pine trees. The course is picturesque, even though it is not particularly undulating. It has five lakes, on which numerous birds nest.

Manises: The oldest of the Valencian clubs. It is a 9-hole course, whose flat layout requires precision and constancy because the fairways are narrow and flanked by dense trees, and the greens are small and surrounded by numerous bunkers.

Santiago Calatrava: 'As the site is close to the sea, and Valencia is so dry, I decided to make water a major element for the whole site using it as a mirror for the architecture.”

Major projects that were recently inaugurated include Sondica Airport, Bilbao (2000); The Bridge of Europe, Orléans, France (2000); the Bodegas Ysios winery in Laguardia, Spain (2001); and Calatrava’s first building in the United States, the acclaimed expansion of the Milwaukee Art Museum (2001). Among the projects that are currently coming to completion are Blackhall Place Bridge, Dublin, Ireland (early 2003); Tenerife Opera House, Santa Cruz, Canary Islands (September 2003); Petach Tikvah Bridge, Tel Aviv, Israel (spring 2003); Quatro Ponte sul Canal Grande, Venice, Italy (late 2003/early 2004); Turtle Bay Bridge, Redding, California (summer 2004); the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (summer 2004); and the Valencia Opera House (2005), the last major building in his City of Arts and Sciences.

Viva Valencia

Chose Valencia on a whim, will definitely be returning there.
Loved the apartment, well furnished and spacious and everything worked as it should, even the central heating to take the chill of a couple of the mornings. The whole complex is nice and the concierge at the secure front gates was very friendly and helpful. My daughter loved the little swing in the play area, we had to stop there every time we left and returned to the flat.When the swimming pool is finished it will be hard to get them to leave at all!
The Science museum and surrounding complex is great and the Aquarium is magnificent (although a touch on the expensive side). Turia park, which used to be the main river bed, is full of little surprises and is lovely to walk through to get into the Old City, about a 45 min stroll. The kids loved the Parc Gulliver part of Turia Park, loads of very intersting free slides, very popular with the locals too.
The bus stop around the corner takes you too the beach or the centre of the Old Town in about 20 mins, perfectly located for both.
Visit the tranquil Botanical Gardens, the busy Central Market (meat, cheese and fish) or the small but beautifully designed Bioparc(zoo) which was excellent. Or you could just chill out at one of the many Old City cafes and watch the world go by.
Great shopping centres and supermarkets in the area, although they are closed on Sundays and Bank Holidays.
The owners were great, very helpful and always polite.
I would recommend this apartment and Valencia in general for an interesting City/Beach break and will be going back very soon.

a lovely apartment perfectly located

  • 4 of 5
A really nice apartment with more décor than you normally get, which was nice but had to put a few things out of the way of the little ones. Its location was perfect for us with two young kids, really close to the city of science and arts museums and aquarium. Also tip for those struggling with late meals with children there is an el corte ingles department store opposite the apartment which has a fab restaurant on the 8th floor and right next door is a crèche/soft play which is open until 10pm! So you can have a drink in peace while waiting for the food and then the kids can come and join you for food once it arrives, small fee applies. Its fairly standard menu but tasty and quality pretty good and best of all has amazing views of the city! One of the best features of the apartment was the hard drive with tons of films for kids and adults so no need to pack dvds. The only difficulty we had was getting into the apartment but there are instructions sent with the paper work which we forgot, you need lift number 4 if you arrive by taxi/car into the basement but the numerous lifts aren't numbered from the outside so its a bit tricky. The pool was great and had a friendly communal feel from the residents that live there, they were all really helpful to us and liked practicing their English. I would recommend this apartment for a short family break. They also have a lady called Adrienne ask at front desk who can help with taxis other things etc and she speaks really good English, she lives there but not sure what she gets from helping people but it was really good to have her around as struggled with my Spanglish a bit!

Family Holiday in Valencia

  • 4 of 5
Our overall experience with this apartment was very good. The owners were very quick to respond to our questions before we arrived and to the minor problems we encountered during our stay. The apartment is in an excellent location, within sight of the City of Arts and Sciences, next door to a bank with an ATM, across the street from a Corte Ingles, and within walking distance from a Carrefour and other shopping, and numerous good eateries. Nearby bus stops connect to Old Town in one direction and the beach in the other.

Very helpful in becoming oriented was a journal on the dining table in which earlier residents has left tips about what is open on Sunday (most businesses, even grocery stores in Valencia close on Sunday), which buses go where, etc.

Our three-generation group included a child just under two, and we appreciated the playground in the courtyard within the gated complex.
In general we found Valencia very child-friendly with lots of playgrounds and activities for kids of all ages.

The apartment was clean and in good repair, but the appliances were showing their age. The dishwasher did not work when we arrived but a repairman arrived within two days and got it going well enough for our use for the rest of the week. The safe did not work and we were told it could not be fixed while we were there. The clothes dryer was very slow. The installation of a much welcomed central air conditioning system during our stay was somewhat disruptive.

Another negative was the transfer of payment. The owner specified electronic tranfer for both the deposit and the final payment. Our bank charged about $40 for each transaction and about another $15 was deducted by somebody before the net deposit reached the owner's account. Our total additional charge for these transactions exceeded $100, which would not have been incurred had I been able to pay by credit card.

Overall I recommend this apartment and Valencia itself. We had on previous trips to Spain visited the places more often frequented by tourists but found Valencia refreshingly different, especially for a laid-back extended-family vacation with people of various ages and interests.

When we first arrived, we were extremely pleased with the quality & space of the apartment. Very luxurious. The location was ideal for us, right opposite the 'City of Arts & Sciences' - amazing. An easy bus trip for either the beach or the old town of Valencia. Communication & assistance from the owners was excellent.
We would recomend this apartment from both the perspective of location and also the helpfulness of the owners. 1st Class !!

Fabulous apartment in fabulous city!

  • 5 of 5
This super apartment is just perfect, sparkling clean, it has everything you could possibly want. Look out of the window and you will see the City of Arts and Sciences just across the road, a walk along the Turia through trees, coffee bars, play and sports areas, takes you right to the heart of the city.

Super sightseeing, wonderful food, cheap buses; safe and pleasant area to be in, not too noisy so you can sleep, everyone very friendly, not laughing at our poor Spanish. Concierges absolutely super, friendly and welcoming every time they saw us.

Owners could not have been more helpful and friendly.

Would certainly recommend to everyone (well, perhaps not everyone as I would like to come back myself one day!)
