An attractive duplex in the town of Rafelbunyol, 18 km from Valencia. The building is near the centre of the town. It is a two bedroom duplex, located on the first floor of a recently constructed building, with a lift. On the first floor there is a sitting-dining room, kitchen and utility room, a bathroom with shower, and the main bedroom with a king-sized double bed. On the second floor there is another double bedroom with access to the balcony, and a fully equipped bathroom.
This flat is very well appointed, the electrical appliances are new and of the best makes. The furniture is also new, and the flat is decorated in good taste. This is a comfortable and warm flat, well built and in a quiet neighbourhood, well connected with Valencia by underground. There is no garage, but there is usually no difficulty in parking near the building.
In Spain we do not normally have kettles (we allways have at home an Italian style coffe-pot ), but we can provide you with a kettle on request (free of charge).
We can provide with a cot in the flat (free of charge). The cot has a mattress, mattress protector, bed linen, a cotton bedspread or a blanket depending on the season. Please ask us if you need it.
Description of Rafelbunyol and Local Activities
Rafelbunyol is a town close to Valencia, 15 minutes to the north of Valencia via the AP-7 motorway. It is also well connected with the city by means of Line 3 (the red line) of the underground, and the underground station is only 400 meters from the flat, or 5 minutes on foot. The underground arrives at the centre of Valencia in about 30 minutes, without changing train. Rafelbunyol is also 10 minutes by car from the beach area of Puebla de Farnals (4-6 km) and El Puig (6 km). In summer, there is a bus to the Puebla de Farnals beach. The town has a sports centre with covered swimming pool, and an open-air swimming pool with bar in summer and a big and new playground and gardens for children.
Rafelbunyol celebrates the Fallas fiesta between the 15th and 20th of March and. The village has all normal services and facilities, such as shops, bakeries, chemists, bars and restaurants. There are also supermarkets, though it is more enjoyable to buy vegetables and fresh fruit in the small village shops, as this area is the market garden of Valencia. More information about it can be found at www.rafelbunyol.es
Excursions to the surroundings.
Visit the Santa María de El Puig Monastery, National Historical Artistic Monument, whose construction dates from 1238. This is located just some 5 km from Rafelbunyol, in the very nice small town of El Puig.
Visit also Sagunto (15 km) a town full of historic tradition. Here you will find ruins dating back to when the Romans ruled these lands. Obligatory visits here are the spectacular Castle, the Roman Theatre (every summer, the latter holds the "Sagunt a Escena" International Theatre Festival), the Jewish Quarter, The Acropolis and the Temple of Diana.
Venture west to discover the inland districts and the pleasant surprises of their gastronomy, landscapes, history, and local fiestas. Rafelbunyol is a good central point from which you can plan a lot of excursions 20-30 km arround (specially delightful in autumn-winter)
In summer we recommend to plan excursions to the beach. There are two very quiet and nice sandy beaches very near Rafelbunyol (5-10 minutes by car), Puebla de Farnals and El Puig, but it is worth driving between 30-60 minutes to visit other beaches in Valencia as Penyscola (to the north) or Cullera, Gandía or Xábia (to the south)
