Holiday farmhouse in Valencia
Farmhouse | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 5
El Corralot is an ancient and large farmhouse of the XIXth century built of stone, which helps to hold a cool temperature in summer and keep warm in the winter thanks to the fireplace in the lounge. The farmhouse is situated in the countryside of Valencia, and has barbecue (paellero), a native garden that we care without pesticides and a large pool with spring water without chlorine, which are both used for swimming in summer and to water the kitchen garden throughout the year, ie, their water is constantly renewed.
The house on the ground floor has a porch (lodge) at the entrance, a living room, dining room, kitchen with dining, bathroom, and then a room. Upstairs is the other room. When people enter to the house, the feeling they have is that it's a huge house, feeling that comes because of the high ceilings, over three meters.
The decoration of the house and rooms is with antique and recycled furniture, and its walls are white-washed, without using any plastic paint. But the most beautiful, is on the outside of the house where are its wonderful panoramic views of the countryside and of the Mediterranean forest. It is an ideal place to rest and relax while watching the landscape.
The house is set in a farm of 100.000m2 (10 ha) of private land that produces citrus organically. In spring when all the trees of citrus flourishes the smell of orange blossom with their bouquets (clusters) of white flowers hanging from the branches is unforgettable and will make your walks a real treat for the senses. Did you know that from the f bitter orange flower is extracted one of the finest essences in the world? The Neroli, used in the best perfumes as Escale a Portofino” of Dior or Neroli Portofino of Tom Ford. Now you can find out first-hand how this wonderful citrus flower smells. But you can also smell the flower lemon or mandarin or sweet orange... Each citrus blossom have different olfactory subtleties. Spring in our fields is a world full of the finest natural flavors!
Also in spring, we prepare the kitchen garden which is next to the house so that in summer it is bountiful and give us a wide variety of seasonal vegetables (tomatoes, peppers, eggplants…). The kitchen garden supplies the kitchen with fresh produce so you could make the ancestral family recipes such as tomato coca, wild asparagus omelet, Escalivada…we have a recipe diary in the kitchen that you can use if you want.

The Valenciana region
It's located at the east of the Iberian Peninsula and comprises three provinces from north to south: Castellón, Valencia and Alicante. All provinces are bathed by the Mediterranean Sea being its coastlines very popular, as the Costa de Azahar, the coast of Valencia and the Costa Blanca.
Besides the land of the Valencian Community are very rich in history, being the first settlers the prehistoric men and later Romans, Visigoths, Muslims, Christians... In the capital of Valencia you can visit numerous museums to know its origin. But if we want to see ancient remains we can start with the Roman theater of Sagunto, numerous castles such as the Castle of Xativa, medieval towers, cathedrals, palaces... However, Valencia also opens to the future with the city of arts and sciences, the Principe Felipe Museum, the Aquarium, “L'umbracle”...
A rich orchard, we must add a rich and varied cuisine, which has brought fame to one of the most popular dishes in the world: the Paella. This dish was born in the fertile lands of Valencia, with rice as the main protagonist, vegetables and free-range meat. Although we can find many dishes, baked rice, arroz a banda, rice crust, black rice (made with squid ink), fideuá… without forgetting the sweets: Cristinas, sweet Cocas, Arnadí...
Valencia is rich and varied with lots to see, taste and experience.
Among the closest cities to the farmhouse we can also find the popular and full of heritage city of Xàtiva, where you can enjoy its impressive Castle, part of the old walls, the Almodí museum, the basilica La Seo and some ancient convents. The city of Gandia, its beaches and its ancient monuments full of charms.
