Valencia, the perfect city for expats

Why moving to Valencia is the best decision you’ll ever make


Valencia has a fantastic climate with an average of 300 days of sunshine a year and endless blue skies. Step out onto the street and feel the sun on your face. Cycling, hiking, yoga in the park or just relaxing on the terrace - it is possible here all year round. Sounds good, right?


This city ticks all the boxes. Living in Valencia as an expat gives you everthing: a beautiful historic city centre, plenty of art and culture, the 9km long green Turia park, extensive white beaches, and a great network of cycle paths, a metro and light rail. Need a break from city life? Within a short drive you find yourself in the surrounding mountains or the natural park of l’Albufera


The Valencians love their food and drink. And with five meals a day in Spain, you can look forward to many moments of eating out. Discover delicious fresh, local paella at lunchtime, try some great tapas in one of the many bars at night, and end with a typical Valencian cocktail: Agua de Valencia. ¡Buen provecho!
