Valencia, the best city for expats

The perfect mix of sun, beach and city life


Valencia ’s mild climate means that you live a lot more outdoors, year round. No more endless grey months spent indoors due to persistent rain and cold, but instead eating outside on the terrace, even in November. Enjoy weekends out with your family or as a couple, in beautiful surroundings, without having to worry about the weather. You can leave that umbrella at home!

Good schools

Good Spanish and international schools, excellent sports facilities and extensive university campuses, Valencia is also a good choice for education, for both children and adults. Do you want to learn Spanish yourself? There are many language schools in the city, for complete beginners and advanced learners. This way you will feel at home in both city and language in no time.

An international atmosphere

Many newcomers would like to fully integrate into Spanish life, but a vibrant expat community does help to quickly feel settled in Valencia. Fortunately, Valencia has plenty of residents from all over the world, many of whom have come to live here to build a new life in the sun just like you. Getting to know people is no problem here, with plenty of expat activities you can participate in.

How we can help you


The perfect home in a perfect place

We have excellent contacts with the local estate agents in Valencia and can make an objective selection of suitable properties for you. Would you like a city centre apartment or rather a villa with a swimming pool in a nearby village? We make a selection based on your wishes and send it to you by email.

We can even do a viewing by video. When you are in Valencia, we will visit the chosen properties together. These can be rental homes as well as owner-occupied homes, or a second home as an investment. We can also advise you on any renovation projects.


The best schools

Finding a good school in Valencia is the most important part of the move for most families. If the children are comfortable in their new environment and feel at home at their new school, parents will often feel a lot calmer already.

We will make a pre-selection together with you and join you on your school visit to get an idea of what it is like. Once you have made a choice, we will guide you through the registration process. Would you like to learn Spanish yourself? We also know many good language schools in Valencia.
