Had an absolutely lovely time in Valencia, and staying at this apartment, with its ceiling to floor windows that lets the sun flood in, really added to the experience. The apartment is in a typical spanish suburb, which is quiet (next to a nunnery/playschool) so not surrounded by tourists,but is only a few minutes walk to the main plaza of the old city. The owner, David, is ever so helpful, and very knowledgeable. The flat is up a couple of flights of old, narrow, stairs, but really are no problem. The flat itself is modern in design, spacious, and all the amenities you need. Will definately be staying here again.
Many thanks for your kind appraisals and I'm really pleased that you enjoyed a great stay in this wonderful city and that my studio pushed all the right buttons to make your visit a genuine city centre experience with the utmost of ease for enjoying it all to its maximum.
See you soon...

We can't wait to return to Valencia after the wonderful 5 days spent here this Spring; the weather was warm and sunny, the city has so much on offer, from the medieval market at El Carmen to the impressive City of Arts and Sciences, the varied and fascinating architecture, the excellent food and drink that can be found near the beach or in the heart of the city, the smell of orange blossom and the delightful Studio Sagunto which didn't disappoint: spacious, clean, comfortable, very well-equipped and in a 'real' part of the city just a few minutes walk to the Centre & opposite a baker's/cake shop which also offers tasty meals to take back to the studio to eat.
Great recommendation and endorsement for this wonderful city - its true Valencia by comparison to Spain's other two major cities offers something far more subtle and overall more friendly and far less frenetic approach to life and it's truly blessed with its climate, topography and affability and invariably offers better value. Previous guests and their friends/family regularly re-book...
