Valencia - Costa del Azahar Vacation Rentals
Rent a holiday apartment on the Costa del Azahar to take in the beauty of this northernmost region of Valencia. Mountains rise away from the Mediterranean beaches on the Costa del Azahar, creating great views and opportunity for recreation. Alcossebre is a microcosm of the Costa del Azahar with its small beaches in semi-hidden coves as well as the large Carregador beach. Other popular Costa del Azahar beaches include Las Palmeras, El Perello, La Malvanosa, El Cabanal and Nazanet. Perched atop the Irta mountains, Xivert castle, reflects the Christian and Arab past of this area. Spain’s third largest city, Valencia, is a bustling port with many cultural attractions. One of the main sights is the City of Arts and Sciences, which has a planetarium, IMAX theater, high-tech exhibitions, a performing arts center and L’Oceanografic, a series of aquariums and underwater tunnels in the midst of sharks, dolphins and other sea life. An established city on the art scene, Valencia has several art museums featuring works of Velazquez, Goya and El Greco, among others. Reaching father into the past, some believe the Valencia Cathedral has been home to the Holy Grail for centuries. The cathedral is worth a visit and a Gothic tower on site can be climbed for a tremendous view of the city. During March, Valencia is at its most festive during Las Fallas, a weeklong party with fireworks and bullfights almost every day. You’ll want to rent a holiday house, villa or apartment for your trip to the Costa del Azahar so you can have a place to retreat to after the full days and nights you can experience.
