North of the Port of Valencia and just 3 kilometers from the Historic Center is Cabanyal. The lively architecture of this Barrio dots the Mediterranean Sea. The neighborhood of Serraria, whose name is taken from the main thoroughfare, calle Maritim Serrarià, which divides the old fisherman’s zone of El Cabanyal, is a convenient zone well serviced by public transport, including the metro and tram. The zone has a large number of shops, supermarkets and services. It is also walking distance to the beaches of Las Arenas and the Malvarossa. El Cabanyal is Valencia’s little Havana, with its dozens of winding street and little houses, many decorated with hand painted tiles and adorned with wrought iron balconies, the area is full of neighborhood eateries, serving small delightful dishes, just as they have done for hundreds of years, from the sea. While a central attraction of the area remains its proximity to the Sea, the food tourist will have a ball in this neighborhood with bakeries, little bars and caffe’s and the marvelous Mercado di Cabanyal, where everything fresh from the sea and Valencia’s rich agricultural farms can be found. By day the area is a bustling quarter but surprisingly quiet at night, though walking distance to the Passeig di Nettuno, where one can dine and drink until 4am on the beach.

Wir wurden sehr nett begrüßt, der Taxiservice vom Flughafen hat gut geklappt.
Und es gab eine Grundausstattung, Kaffee, Wein Milch und Kekse.
Das war sehr nett.
Jederzeit gerne wider

Klasse fanden wir den Car-Service, der uns im Vorfeld angeboten wurde. So wurden wir direkt am Flughafen abgeholt - Chauffeur mit hochgehaltenem Namensschild inklusive - und vor die Tür unserer Wohnung gefahren. Da wurden wir freundlichst von David empfangen, der uns alles Wichtige über die Wohnung und die unmittelbare Umgebung erzählte und uns schliesslich die Wohnungsschlüssel übergab. Er war auch jederzeit per Handy erreichbar, wenn Fragen auftauchten.
