The perfect investment in Valencia

There are many reasons (other than the high yield) that El Cabanyal Valencia is a great place to invest; In this post we’ll show you around the place and let you know why El Cabanyal is a sure-fire winner if you’re looking to buy property in the area.

The recent history of El Cabanyal Valencia

Traditionally El Cabanyal was the port area of Valencia, its houses are unique, the locals have a lot of pride in their neighbourhood, and for one day every year, the old houses are open to the public to get a taste of the Cabanyal, and how life was in the 60s.

With recent investment in tourism by the local government, many of the streets have been pedestrianised and new bars and coffee shops are opening every week. It has become a great new area for tourists and local alike; the streets are clean and free of traffic. The life is relaxed, the food is great, and the soft sea breeze gives the whole area a defining touch.

Proximity to the beach

One of the best features of El Cabanyal is that the beach is within five minutes’ walk. Valencia City Centre is actually quite far away from the beach and can take 15-20 minutes in the car.
