Description:Valencia is Spain’s third largest city and is situated on the east coast. It has a thriving business district which makes Valencia one of the more important cities than others in the whole of the the Mediterranean.  Its total catchment population is in excess of 1.5 million if you take in to account the surrounding towns that feed of the commercial success of the city.

It is a well connected city through road, rail, port and airport links and therefore has a far more cosmopolitan feel than its other neighbouring cities. Valencia also enjoys an even climate through the year averaging out at around 17C so summers are not too hot neither winters too cold.

When you arrive there its obvious that it places the conduct of business high in its priorities.  It used to be the financial capital of Europe 500 years ago and you can see that it is trying to regain that title now.  There are futuristic exhibition halls that attract other businesses around the world to congregate and trade.

The futurism doesn’t stop there however.  Even the arts and leisure buildings are all being redesigned to meet the demands of the 21st century.

It has its own dialect-Valenciano, which is a form of Catalan and is highly used – but the use of English is higher in Valencia than other cities.  It is a lively city and a noisy one!  Crime rates are high but its not serious crime, just petty theft so be sure to go for a site with CCTV or 24 hour security guards.

There is lots of property for sale (mostly apartments), and cheap houses can be found on the city outskirts. It also has 2 universities so there is a demand for student rentals for most of the year.
