About Paul & Gema
We have been living in the area for 10 years and prefer this area above all others in Spain. We also have a villa for rental in the Costa Blanca which is quite different and offers a different life style.
Paul & Gema purchased this Villa in 2008
Why Paul & Gema chose La Canyada
We love the area for its relaxing atmosphere and close proximity to Valencia and all amenities. As you come in to La Canyada, you will notice the welcoming feeling of the area with its leafy trees and well maintained avenues and public places.

Comfortable villa, great pool
Enjoyed our stay as a family of 5 adults. Plenty of room for all, very clean, good facilities. Not ideal if you plan to go into the city a lot though; 15 minute walk to metro, which on the summer timetable had only 2 trains per hour, and if you want the beach you have to change. Car hire may be better in that scenario. Recommend Luke at ‘Bike Guy VLC’ for great city orientation bike ride, and Tony at Valencia Cellars’ who customized a wineyard visit and tasting near Raquena and airport drop off for us on our last day.
Many thanks guys, we appreciate the feedback. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed staying at our home. La Canyada is the oldest and most established urbanization in Valencia. It is highly sought after because it is as close as you can get to the city centre and beach whilst still having the benefits of a spacious villa with all the amenities nearby. The kind of city centre access you are talking about can only be found by renting apartments in town. Of course with that, you wouldn't have the benefits of outdoor summer living and privacy that one gets in La Canyada. With a little bit of planning and the odd taxi, most of our guests have found the local transport quite convenient. There is a direct metro line from our villa to the centre of town, which is A. Gimera metro stop. The change of metro lines from the Pink to the Green line is a fairly simple affair at Angel Guimera. Personally, I think a local cab from A. Guimera to any destination in the city offers a cheap and convenient solution, if one does not want to change metro lines. Naturally, if one hires a car, it opens up ones options to explore further afield. i.e. The Valleys of Chulilla and the Charco Azul. Once again, thanks for your review and hope to see you again. Kind regards, Paul and Gema
Perfect for what we wanted
A quiet away from it all family holiday. The pool was the benchmark against how we will judge all other pools.
The villa was even better than the photographs. The pool was wonderful especially in the heatwave and the outdoor kitchen was perfect, we used it most evenings. The villa is in a peaceful location but handy for the village which has a number of small shops and bars plus a great supermarket and also the metro into Valencia. Overall a great property in a great location which meant we had a fabulous holiday, we highly recommend Palm Villa!
Clean! Comfortable, and Paul and Gema are great hosts. The house is convenient in that it's only a 15 min walk to the Metro into Valencia (around 30-45 min) and the town has everything you could want. Mercadona 5 min, restaurants 15 min and, if you're a mountain biker, trails across the street. We're a family of 5(kids 8-12) and we enjoyed it thoroughly , even without sun. Thanks, and we'll be back..
Excellent villa, great location. Highly recommend.
he villa was perfect! Very clean, plenty of space (there was 6 of us) All the bedroom where of a decent size. The outdoor area was nothing less than amazing, very spacious and again very clean and clearly well kept. The pool was great and again very clean.
The Villa was approx. 15-20-minute walk in to the town / station depending on how fast you walked. Very hot when we were there so a nice gentle walk!
Supermarket was a further couple of minutes and the trollies supplied where very useful.
We hired a car for the first couple of days of our trip just to get the heavy shopping and tour around a bit further. We returned the car to the airport, got the train back via Valencia. The metro was very easy to use. After that was used the metro to get around.
Paul and Gema were very helpful and the couple of questions we had via WhatsApp were answered instantly. Paul even sorted out the cab for us back to the airport as well.
If you are thinking of going to Spain and want a Villa that is spacious, clean, great pool in a peaceful location, yet only 15-20 minutes to all the amenities (including a train into the main town) you won’t find many better!
Would highly recommend. 5 star villa with a 5 star service.
Wonderful location and excellent villa
The villa was located about 10-15 minutes away from the metro, which meant it was very easy to travel into Valencia. It is best to buy the bonometro ticket for 10 journeys which can be shared between people. This worked out much cheaper. The village had a few restaurants but they tended to open at 8pm in the evening which is later than we are used to. However, when in Spain, live as the Spanish do! The villa was perfect, just the right size for our group of 7, with plenty of outside eating space and shade. The pool temperature was spot on too! Not too cool but refreshing in the heat. We had a number of issues initially but Paul and Gema were very obliging and quickly fixed the broken fan and air conditioning. They were also there to welcome us when we arrived and gave us a quick tour of the house. The only issue I forgot to mention to Paul and Gema was that the fridge in the house never really got cold despite lowering the temperature. This unfortunately meant some food went off quicker than we would have liked. Overall this was a super villa and Paul and Gema were excellent hosts.
We are very pleased to hear that you enjoyed the villa, the pool and the local area.We are sorry to hear about the fridge not performing. Unfortunately, the heat wave affected the fridge making it less efficient. Luckily the house is equipped with 2 other fridges. Many thanks for staying at our holiday home! We wish you all the best.
La Canyada is the oldest urbanization in Valencia so it is very well established and it has its own village centre with local shops that are also open on Sundays. It is traditional for the Valencian people to come to La Canyada to do some Sunday local shopping at the delicatessens, excellent bakeries and butchers, take a walk down the leafy streets and often dine out.
