Positioned in the charming maritime neighbourhood of El Cabanyal, Barracart Apartments unites contemporary design with traditional features inspired by the storied past and colourful houses of this seaside community. Quiet, elegantly appointed and spacious enough for a family to use, this collection of luxury houses for rent is the perfect base to explore Valencia and its spectacular sprawling coastline.
Barracart Apartments lay some way away from the city centre, in the old seafaring neighbourhood of El Cabanyal. What was once a separate fishing village, 5km from Valencia's heart, remains home to ambient terraces and an infectiously slow pace of life. Here you can stroll along the palm-studded waterfront, admiring the colourful houses from El Cabanyal at the southern end to the luxury seafront properties of Patacona Beach in the north. Set off early, and you can witness one of the famous pink Valencia sunrises above the sparkling Mediterranean waters and sugary sands.
Among the shabby-chic streets of this colourfully painted neighbourhood, the Barracart Apartments are true to the local style. Heavy wooden doors, gleaming white walls, and ornate ceramic tile look much the same today as they might have at the end of the 19th Century. Yet as Valencia elevates to new cosmopolitan heights, these luxury apartments follow, offering a contemporary edge with bursts of plant life, elegant staircases and open halls that welcome the salty Mediterranean breeze.
Every Barracart apartment enjoys the amenities desired for a self-sufficient holiday. While traditional breakfasts are available on sun-drenched terraces just moments away, with a coffee maker, toaster, microwave and blender, you’ll feel just as comfortable preparing it for yourself.
Apartments are cleaned daily, and there’s a pre-bookable shopping service for those who need it. Parking is available with advanced notice, while those without a vehicle will find directions to the nearest bike rental - the perfect opportunity to discover Valencia’s scenic network of cycling lanes.
Exposed brickwork, overflowing bookshelves and monochrome artwork adorn the walls of every room, while heavy wood; French windows let in the bright Valencian sunshine. Warm lighting and harmonious colours offer a welcoming ambience, with a walk-in shower and a small balcony lending modern charm.
Food and drink
Savour sizzling meats, smoked hams and home-cured chorizo at Casa Montaña, just a three-minute walk away. Opened in 1836, this bodega is renowned among Valencian locals and is owned by the same family that opened these apartments.
Staying in Barracart offers you priority booking and access to exclusive restaurant events, including wine-tasting evenings and Iberian ham workshops. Explore the fabled wine cellar, and tempt your palate with rich Valencian flavours.
