Fortunately, our city is very welcoming, and you will find neighbourhoods to suit all tastes and needs. These are some of the most important.

El Carmen

Trendy neighbourhoods in Valencia 2

El Carmen is the historic centre of Valencia, and it is also the neighbourhood where our Spanish language school is located! Many monuments such as the cathedral of Valencia, the Serrano towers, the Miguelete, etc. are in this neighbourhood.

El Carmen is home to all kinds of people: from families with children to lifelong neighbours, tourists and, of course, students.

This is where much of the city’s social and cultural life is concentrated, as well as much of the city’s nightlife. If you like to live in a central neighbourhood, this is one of the best options for accommodation in Valencia.


Ruzafa is one of the trendiest neighbourhoods in the city and is an example of the mix of modernity and tradition that can be found throughout the city. With plenty of atmospheres both during the day and at night, this area has a wide range of bars and restaurants. You will also find art galleries, fashion shops, tattoo workshops, hairdressers, etc. A very lively neighbourhood where you are sure to find your place.

El Cabanyal (or Cabañal)

The seaside neighbourhood of Valencia is known as “El Cabanyal”, and in recent years many young people and families have moved there to live near the sea (just a few metres from the Paseo Marítimo and the beach).

Its streets and two-storey houses are its main attraction.

But it is not the only one: according to “The Guardian”, Cabanyal-Canyamelar is one of the neighbourhoods with the greatest gastronomic potential in Valencia because it combines traditional bars with very modern establishments in the Marina and the port area. In addition, communication with the centre of Valencia is excellent by metro, tram and bus.

In the past, Benimaclet was an independent village. But, little by little, its streets were extended until it was absorbed by the city. 

Even so, nowadays Benimaclet is a fairly quiet neighbourhood, which preserves part of its essence, and which has a lot of local commerce and some pedestrian streets. 

Its proximity to the universities, the prices of its rents and its large number of bars and entertainment venues make it also one of the favourite areas for students who come to study in Valencia.

According to the municipal barometer, Patraix is one of the most highly rated neighbourhoods to look for accommodation in Valencia. This area of the city has experienced significant growth in recent years, partly thanks to the construction of the Ronda Sur ring road, and has made its multiculturalism its greatest emblem and attraction.

One of the main advantages of living in Patraix is its proximity to the centre (you can walk to other neighbourhoods, such as El Carmen or Ruzafa). In addition, Patraix has all the services (supermarkets, parks and green areas, etc.) making it perfect for young people and families.
