Thanks Mac75, I am looking into places to stay in that area now. I think we may have decided just to stay in the city for the entire week but to hire a car for the last few days to tour around the coast and inland, however, before we do, is it OK driving around Valencia? My Husband does the driving and has been fine driving round Malaga and Alicante so should he be OK? Also, do you think that most places we would look at staying would have car parking? Is parking a problem on the streets?

Thanks, you have been a great help again.

Thread: Ideas for towns to stay in within 45 mins of Valencia and info on Valencia itself...

It is our first time flying to Valencia, we usually go to Malaga or Alicante airports and have been up as far as Denia.

This time we are planning on spending the first 4 nights in Valencia city itself as it looks like a lovely city and then we plan on hiring a car and driving somewhere within 45 mins to stay for the other 3 nights. We will probably go on AirBnb and find private apartments to stay in as we prefer that to hotels. So, firstly which parts of the city are good to stay in and safe to stay in with plenty of bars and restaurants? I've heard that the Colon area is the best but am open to more ideas.

Secondly, where is a nice town to stay in with 45 mins of Valencia airport? We prefer more non tourity places with lots of tapas bars and a lively nightlife (bars and restaurants). We have looked into Gandia and even though the beach looks lovely it loks as though there are alot of highrise buildings so not sure we would like that so any other ideas would really be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

 I am looking for ideas for a nice town to stay in up to an hour inland from Malaga airport. We always stay along the coast but thought that in March as its not as though we can use the beach we would go inland.

We have visited Ronda many times but it is a little too far and having been there before we would like to try somewhere different. We would like a pretty town where we can wander out every night and find plenty of tapas bars and maybe a restaurant or two, somewhere with some (Spanish) life.

Any ideas would be great then I can start looking at owners direct etc at houses to rent!

 We are thinking of going away in March, we usually go to the costa Del sol and have only been once to the Alicante area where we stayed in Finestrat and visited Denia, Javea, calpe but never go to go the other way toward Santa pola and Torrevieja.

Therefore, as this area is new to us can anyone suggest places where I can look into staying (I always book a private place on owners direct or similar). 

We are in our thirties, no kids, we love to explore and we love proper Spanish towns where we can venture out every night and find lots of Tapas bars. We aren't looking for a place with lots of loud clubs and bars but more of a local feel - but still with life, but Spanish life. Despite Finestrat being so close to Benidorm we actually enjoyed this mountain village and its local feel (even though half of the town was inhabited by english people!) but we could eat fine tapas every night for a cheap as you like and it was great so we are looking for a similar kind of place.

We don't mind going inland - as long as it isn't so high that its cold!!! So, any ideas? The coast or inland within an hour of Alicante, and also what kind of weather can we expect in March in this area?

 Hi Lora / Foxbat, thanks for your input on weather, i think i know what to pack for tomorrow now, and rain in Spain is never ever like rain in the UK!!! However, I forgot about the Bank holidays, can you tell me which days the main supermarkets will close, i.e. will it be OK on Thursday as thats when we aim to do our big shop?
