An oasis of calm 10 minutes from Valencia: discover La Albufera and its residential possibilities

One of the most charming coastal wetlands extends to the south of the Valencian Community. La Albufera and the small towns of the South Coast form a suggestive natural picture of bohemian airs that invite to calm and relaxation. Immerse yourself in the beauty of these places through the proposals of our real estate company.


Nature and tranquility within walking distance of the capital

Between the districts that surround the natural enclave of La Albufera and the center of Valencia there is barely an hour away. The great communications between the capital and these southern towns make the area a sensational option for the purchase or rental of a home or a second residence.

Since the Albufera estuary is an area of great natural and cultural interest, there are numerous tourist bus routes apart from the regular EMT buses. Lines 14, 15 and 25 depart from the centre of Valencia and cover these routes for 1.50 euros. The buses use the same route as taxis and cars: the motorway to El Saler, the CV-500 and the network of secondary roads that connect with each of these districts.

A vibrant and colourful landscape

La Albufera and Poblados del Sur consist of a unique landscape. This blend of nature, tradition and culture gives this area in the Valencian Community its own identity. The most authentic aspect of the area is evident in the small villages that give the environment a unique character.


El Saler

Located in the heart of Albufera lagoon, El Saler is one of the most beautiful districts in the south. Here you will find protected areas such as La Devesa, which with its dunes and pine forests serving as a border between the Albufera lake and the Mediterranean Sea. The village has retained its traditional character, although it is not in its streets that the true wealth of the area can be found. You only have to take a walk to any of the innumerable trails that surround it to understand that the treasure of this village is in its privileged environment. Rice fields, orchards and beaches such as La Garrofera, La Devesa and L'Arbre del Gos allow you to enjoy the sea in total peace and tranquility. It's no surprise that many visitors come to the golf courses of Parador Nacional de El Saler to immerse themselves in the Mediterranean essence.

El Perellonet

The original centre of Perellonet has been wedged between the buildings that were constructed from the 1970s onwards. However, the small square and its fishermen's houses remain the centre of activity in this town. With the advent of new urbanised areas, chalets and apartments, the infrastructures of Perellonet were also forced to develop. Currently this village has sports facilities, a doctor's surgery and sociocultural and recreational classrooms that offer activities throughout the year. There are also numerous services in the residential area that stretches next to the beach of El Perellonet and its three kilometres of fine sand.

El Perelló

It is one of the maritime villages par excellence in this area of the Valencian coast, one of the most developed areas around Poblados del Sur and the one that concentrates the greatest amount of amenities. Part of its development is the result of the facilities of its marina, a fine example of quality tourism in the Mediterranean. The nautical school, the 186 moorings, the numerous leisure boats and the possibility of practicing water sports in a scenic setting make El Perelló an authentic Mediterranean gem. Its extensive beach, on the edge of the Albufera National Park, is the best representation of all that the area has to offer.

Mareny de Barraquetes

This is one of the smaller local villages linked to the municipality of Sueca. It shares not only the particularities of the an interlinked municipality, but also the characteristics of the landscape, culture and environment that can be seen in the coastal part of La Albufera. This village, which owes its name to the traditional buildings that boosted its population rise, is now a tourist and residential area with an average level of all-year-round occupation and a wonderful urban beach with a pleasant promenade.

Mareny Blau

This coastal resort with a family atmosphere contrasts with the other nearby beaches such as Cullera. Despite its proximity, it does not have the same hustle and bustle of the crowded urban areas. In fact, Mareny Blau is made up of small housing developments of villas and apartments, many of them with private access, which offer the security and tranquility necessary for a great family life. 

El Palmar

Preserving its traditional character, this coastal town is nestled between one of the most popular areas in the southeast of Albufera. El Palmar is an invitation to a quiet and simple life in an incomparable setting. The activity of the district is concentrated around Plaza de la Sequiota, around which the first huts were built. Some of these traditional constructions, which once served as a home for farmers, are now restaurants where the most famous rice dishes in the region can be sampled. The village is also the starting point for wonderful boat trips on the Albufera lake.
