Jill and Chris are dreaming of relocating to the stunning countryside of inland Valencia in Southern Spain. They’re looking for their perfect new forever home to share with their two much-loved dogs, so they’ve asked Scarlette Douglas to come to their aid. The couple have an ideal budget of £140,000 to find a villa with lots of outside space, and a private pool, and Scarlette has five terrific options to show them, but will any impress them enough to make an offer?
About the area
Lying halfway along Spain’s Mediterranean Coast, the Valencia region has a wonderful mix of mountainous landscape and almost 400 miles of coastline. Its year-long warm climate can be enjoyed in under a two and a half hour flight from the UK. The jewel in the region’s crown is the historic city of Valencia itself, with over 1 and a half million residents it’s the third largest city in Spain. Situated on the coast, there’s a fantastic beach here as well as some beautiful architecture and of course, its famous City of Arts and Sciences. The design of the main structure is reminiscent of the exterior of the Sydney Opera House and it is home to some of the best museums in Europe – including Europe's largest oceanographic park, with aquariums containing over 500 species of fish and sea creatures. With a metropolitan area of 1.5 million inhabitants, the city of Valencia is the third largest city in Spain after Madrid and Barcelona – and it has a very cosmopolitan feel.
