Hi, friends! My name is Vicente and I was born in Valencia in 1966. I'm married with two kids. I'm very fond of classical music and -specially- of classic and flamenco guitar, of classic cinema, photography and jazz, and I'm running a beautiful jewelry with my family ( I'm delighted with my new 'job' renting this apartment.That allows me to meet very diferent and lovely people from all over the world, making it a very enriching experience. I hope you are next to enjoy my little corner at Barrio El Carmen in Valencia. You won't regret!!

Thank you for making us feel like family

  • 5 of 5

We were on our 4th week of visiting Germany, Italy before adriving in Valencia Spain. While we traveled, we stayed exclusively in VRBO. Some of the stays met our expectations, others not as represented. When we arrived in Valencia, Vincente met us at the airport even though it was midnight. The following morning, I dropped my tablet and the screen shattered. What to do...I called Vincente for advise. He insisted, picking up the tablet for repair and returned the tablet later in the evening, advising me that the tablet could not be repaired in Spain. We tried to pay him for the ride from the airport and for his service and time with the repair of the tablet, he refused. By far Vincente's hospitality was awesome, making us feel like family rather than people renting his apartment. The apartment was extremely clean, very well apointed and a great location. I can tell you this is the very best place for you to enjoy your Valencia holiday

Vincente, thank you for such a memorable time.

Owner's Response: Dear Becky, it is not that you felt like home what I value over the rest of your words, it is instead that you made me feel my American uncle & aunt were spending some days in Valencia!! Thanks for taking such good care of the apartment and for trusting me after your "other" experiences before arriving here. All the best to you and your families and I hope we have the chance to meet again some other time. Sincerely, Vicente.

A lovely loft indeed

  • 5 of 5

In januari 2016 I stayed with my 3-year old son in the appartement. It was in one word: great. The appartement itself is clean, beatiful and cosy. It is situated on walkingdistance of allmost everything you want te see. Next to that: supermarket, pharmacy, park, busstops's all sort of around the corner.

Vicente welkomed us when we arrived. He is very helpfull and gave a lot information about the city, he was also very easy to reach during our stay. By arrival we found some lovely fruit in the appartement, coffee, tea and some slices of terrific ham. And for my little one we found three suprise chocolat eggs in the fridge. How thoughtfull can you be? That was really nice. I really recomand this appartement. Love to come back one time.

Best accommodation ever!

  • 5 of 5

From our first email exchange, Vicente was an incredibly attentive host and obviously cared very much about making our stay comfortable, easy and full of fun. He provided us with directions, lots of info and many helpful suggestions. The apartment was even better than described, and was ideal for us. It was in a perfect location for exploring the city - it is just a few minutes walk from a bus route, but we walked everywhere, even to the zoo, the football stadium, and the City of Arts & Sciences. It is also very close to the park, old town/Plaza de Carmen and all the attractions. It was extremely clean, tidy, welcoming and well-stocked. Vicente had even bought us some food for our stay, including fresh Valencian oranges, drinks and treats for our daughter. He was in touch with us constantly to make sure everything was OK - which it was. Besides a bit of street noise, which is to be expected in any city, the apartment was pretty quiet at night, as it is not on a street with very many bars or restaurants - but just around the corner is one of the best vegetarian restaurants in Valencia. The beds, towels, TV/DVD, kitchen appliances, bathroom, all were very new and nice, which made us feel like we were in a cosy hotel. Highly recommended!

Owner's Response: Thanks for you very kind words, Elisabeth!! It was my pleasure to receive you and your family in my apartment. You kept it as your own and you always offered a smile to me, and that's something I won't forget. Please do come back any other time you need sun and a friendly place to stay. My home will be ready. Have a nice summer, Vicente

Perfect location, central and still calm, and very bright owner

  • 5 of 5

The flat is perfectly located to explore Valencia, very central and still quiet. It consists of a living room with a fully equipped kitchen (really nothing missing), a bedroom and a bathroom, all very nicely furnished so that one can really feel being at home. The owner is very polite and obliging. He not only gave us very valuable tips where to go for sightseeing, which metro and bus lines to use and which restaurants serve good meals at very reasonable prices, he also had the fridge fed with butter, marmalade, milk, all sorts of soft drinks, beer, a bottle of wine, chocolate, and provided a full loaf of bread, olives, chips, spaghetti, tomato sauce, olives etc. so that we did not need to buy any food. He was very attentive and responsive, we just can say a big THANK YOU to Vicente: You made our stay in Valencia a perfect holiday! When we will come next to Valencia we will certainly ask you if your flat is free.

It is very economical to take a taxi at the airport. You can reach the studio for about 20 €. You can also take the Underground (Metro) at the airport till stop number 10, Angel Guimerà (Green or Red Lines 3/5). Then, without leaving the station, take the Yellow Line 1 (to Llíria or Bétera) and get off at the first stop 'Túria', pedestrian exit to Gran Via Fernando Catolico-Botanic-Paseo Petxina. Outside, walk to the right along the riverwalk and take the second street on the right c / Dr.Sanchis Bergon. Follow this street until the junction with C / Guillem de Castro. Cross opposite to the c / Corona. After about 100m take the first street on the left, c / Beneficiencia. You have almost arrived. The second street on your right is your destination.

Right next to the studio you will find the IVAM, Valencian Institute of Modern Art, contemporary art international benchmark, but Valencia has many attractions for the visitor. In Plaza del Ayuntamiento (CITY HALL Sq.)and Plaza de la Reina (Queen Sq) there are the main Tourist Offices, where you can be informed about all of them. Do not miss the Barrio del Carmen (where you will be staying) at dusk and night, lively token of the city life, neither the magnificent Jardin del Turia, 3 minutes from home, where you will stroll away from the city bustle. In the Historical Centre don't miss the Basilica of the Virgin and the Cathedral, with its famous tower 'El Miguelete' on top of which you will get astonishing views of the ancient and modern city. Nearby it is also the Palace of the Marques de Dos Aguas, with unique examples of Valencian ceramics. And on the way to the port, the unavoidable visit is that of the City of Arts and Sciences and Prince Felipe Museum, with the magnificent Palau de les Arts (Opera). A little further there are the city beaches, Malvarrosa and Patacona, recently renovated, as well as the Marina Rey Juan Carlos, scene of Formula 1 racing. If you can go further, the recommended excursion is a visit to the Albufera (inland sea) and the Playa de El Saler. Visit and get completely informed!
