Villages and Urbanizations just outside Valencia

The cities in Spain are densely populated while the villages are often empty. People choose the city over the interior for work and other facilities that the city offers. Due to Corona and the strict lockdown in Spain, you can see a trend that more and more Spaniards are opting for a house with a garden and more space. As a result, the interest in living in villages and urbanizations just outside Valencia has increased sharply.
