It was our second trip in Valencia, the first with our two young kids (4 years old and 20 months).
The flat is very nice and there is no difference between the photos and what the flat looks like !!! It is ideal for family, Manu, the landlord put several things for us : a strolley, a high chair. And he took the time to show us everything in the apartment and all the main places to visit in Valencia. My children really liked to go in the Turia (2 minutes from the apartment) where you can find kids playground (try Gulliver, it's the best !!). Manu, also, helped us to get discounted tickets for Oceanographic, which is really close to flat (10 minutes by walk).
The neighborhood is not as touristic as the center of Valencia but very close to the main places (between the center and the beach) by walk or by buses.
To conclude, I recommand to go to Valencia and to go Manu's flat !
Manu was very helpful both before our visit and during our stay. The apartment itself was, dare I say it, cleaner than home and contained more equipment than we needed for our stay. There were many thoughtful little touches like oil and spices in the kitchen and shampoo in the bathroom. These were much appreciated because we travelled with hand luggage and therefore, no liquids. Another plus was the beach towels which again saved us on weight. Manu gave us details of more things to do than we could possibly fit in.
The location of the apartment was close to the new City of Science and Arts and to the bus stop for the beaches. Going into the old town involved either a bus or a walk along the delightful 'river', or rather where the river used to be.
We had a very enjoyable week and would recommend both Manu and his apartment. Oh yes, almost forgot the terrace. A lovely spot to eat breakfast or sip a glass of evening wine.
Our host, José was in constant contact leading up to our stay.
Very helpful about arranging to meet us and giving us directions and information regarding transport.
On arriving José and his wife were waiting for us to show us the apartment and they were very friendly and lovely people.
After giving us all the information about the apartment, they gave us a bottle of wine, wished us a great stay and assured us that we could be in contact at any time.
The apartment was extremely clean with everything we needed, including WIFI and a computer. It's a really good size with everything you need. They also included Beach towels , extra bedding, toiletries and a hair drier!
We would definitely recommend this to family and friends and would love to stay here again!
