So maybe you’ve come over on a recon trip to Valencia to decide which neighbourhood is the one for you and your family when you decide to make the big move. And maybe you’ve decided to head down and explore Cabanyal and take a walk along the seaside passing through Malvarossa until you cross a little bridge and arrive at yet more beach. Well now you have left Valencia city limits and are in Alboraya, or more specifically La Patacona, the third part of this 3.5km continuous stretch of sand.
When you arrive in La Patacona, you’ll notice among other things how all of a sudden everything looks newer. Wide avenues, gated communities with swimming pools and playgrounds, surf schools (yes you can surf in the Med, the excellent Casa de la Mar just down the road from today’s property founded by a group of surf aficionados hosts live music, art exhibitions and all sorts of events as well as surfing classes), beach bars and eateries all help give this neighbourhood a real seaside feel. Construction only really started down this way in the 1990s and as with all newer residential areas, it has taken a while for La Patacona to acquire that true neighbourhood feel but now it has all the infrastructure and offerings that you would need to feel right at home. And as for connections to the city centre, the bus stops literally outside your door.
As for the apartment itself, it is currently a 2 bed / 2 bath but with very little work it could be a 3 bed and incorporate an open plan kitchen-dining room. With sea views from the balcony to your left and mountain views to your right, it’s the perfect spot to have your brekkie with the sunrise, head off and your odd jobs and be back for a sunset merienda. Being in Alboraya said merienda would obviously need to include some horchata and fartons.
Parking space and a storage unit are also included.
