I am ready to welcome you in my apartment, which was my first work as an architect. I designed it with special dedication & care, and hope you'll love it as much as I do.
Smart and simple, the apartment is unusually spacious for a one bedroom property, and has been decorated in a contemporary fashion.
It is on the fourth floor of a vintage building that has been totally renovated with a lift.
The whole apartment has a beautiful floor of solid wood and original walls made of brick and stone. The high beam ceilings add to the wonderful old-world style with all the modern confort.
With the large bed (1'60m x 2'00m) and the comfortable double sofa-bed in the living room, the apartment can easily accommodate up to 4 adults. I can also provide you with a cot if you are travelling with your baby.
The large open-plan is spacious and bright, with 2 balconies and 2 large windows that flood the space with light for much of the day.
Free high speed WiFi, air conditioning, central heating, double glazing, fans, flat screen TV, DVD player, hair dryer...
The kitchen is fully equipped with a washing machine, fridge, dishwasher, induction hob, oven, microwave, toaster, coffee maker, kettle and all of the cooking utensils needed to prepare a meal in whenever desired.
Just outside the old city centre (one block away from the Old Town), in a classic, traditional and safe enviroment.
Supermarket, pharmacy, atm, restaurants .. All you need is within walking distance.
Close to all amenities, the apartment is home to all of the central sights and most of the city's attractions.
5 minutes walk to 3 different tube stations: Xátiva, Angel Guimerá, and Plaza de España.
Direct acces from the airport by metro (20 minutes - 3'90€ per person), and short walk to the main train station Valencia-Nord.
_Other things to note___
- Bedding, towels and kitchenware are all of course provided.
- A highchair and a travel cot are available (upon request and with no extra cost) for children under the age of 4, but bedding for the cot is not provided.
- Free parking is possible in the streets nearby.

A perfect apartment for our five night stay at the beginning of March. Great attention to detail including a complete manual with instructions for operating everything in the apartment, with diagrams and pictures no less, bus and metro routes to the most popular sites, historical information, and more. A beautiful and quiet apartment to come home to after trekking around the beautiful city of Valencia. Will definitely come back for a longer stretch next time.

La Buhardilla is home away from home. Never have we rented such a well and personally equipped apartment before. It really feels as if the owner had just gone out the door and handed her personal home over to you. Colors and materials are highly harmonic and on top, it is very well thought through - no wonder, as the owner is also the architect of the place. And she is also a wonderful, lovely, friendly host!
Regarding noise: There is quite some traffic on one of the roads, but as the apartment is on the top floor it's not too bad.
For us it was the perfect stay!

La Buhardilla is just lovely -- spacious, beautifully appointed, comfortable, and convenient. Ines designed this place for herself. Each room is thoughtfully and tastefully set up. We walked to every part of the old city, the edge of which is one minute away, and there are several wonderful restaurants within a ten minute walk. Ines was attentive and thoughtful. She provided us with all the information we needed to enjoy Valencia, and she never intruded on our vacation. We would return in a heartbeat.

If you are visiting Valencia, look no further. Well represented by the pictures on Flipkey. Stunning apt has everything you need including the sweetest and most helpful host, Ines. Explains all appliances in depth. Gives tips for where to go and what to see. Presents a map and shows you how to get where. Can't get any better than this. Great location to see Valencia. 7-8 bus lines right outside the door. Metro within 5 minute walk. Renfe main train station 7 minute walk for day trips. High Speed trains for longer trips a shuttle away through main station. Can't say enough about this apt and host. The best we have ever stayed at and we have traveled to many countries. The only negative is that we had to leave to go home. We considered it a bargain for what you get. Highly recommend. Hola Ines :)

Thank you so much Ines for your wonderful apartment! You looked after us really well, providing us with a cot and high chair for our baby. Everything we wanted was there for us. Your apartment is in a fantastic location and was perfect for our stay. We had a super month in Valencia, and we would certainly recommend your apartment to anybody wanting to stay in the area. We hope to return.

We were in Ines' flat for a week during last august. It was amazing: the flat, the owner, the city... all brilliant!
The flat is awesome, extremely well decorated, clean and useful. Architecturally it is a masterpiece of warmness, beauty and good taste without been pretentiously luxurious: the perfect simplicity.
The owner, Ines, who actually designed the flat, is the most efficient host ever. And so kind!
We strongly recommend this flat, which has a single negative point: it is so good, we felt so well inside, that it was kind of hard to leave every morning to visit the astonishing Valencia!
We will definitely try to go back to Ines' flat. Do not hesitate for a sec should you be interested in going to Valencia... and you should be!

We stayed only 2 days at Ines's lovely apartment but wish we could have stayed much longer. Ines was there when we arrived and was the perfect hostess making sure that everything was as we wanted. The apartment had everything we required and was in a perfect central location. Even when we came home Ines emailed us to make sure everything had been ok! We hope to go back there one day and treat Ines to a thank-you glass of wine.

This apartment is awesome! Walking distance to all of central Valencia, about 5mins from the Valencia Nord station. The apartment itself was spotless, modern and had absolutely everything you need. You couldn't ask for a lovelier land lady/owner! Definitely will be staying here again :)
