Valencia Surburbs

Although most people focus on the coast or the city of Valencia, you can also look just outside the city. Then you have the best of both worlds: close to the city with everything it has to offer in terms of culture and events. But also just a bit quieter, more space and close to the beautiful hinterland.

Even if you prefer a semi-detached or detached house instead of an apartment, you have a lot of good offerings in the Valencia suburbs. You can sit outside in your own garden and whether or not a private swimming pool.

Although you are not in the middle of Valencia city, you are still in the lively center in no time. All suburbs of Valencia are well connected to the city by public transport (even metro connection!) And an excellent road network.
