The best urbanisations to live in Valencia as an alternative to the city centre

The historic and urban centre is the heart of every big city, and in the case of Valencia, even more. After all, its main monuments and traditional atmosphere are within its centre. However, the central part is synonymous with hustle and bustle, noise and lack of parking, for example. It is not surprising that more and more people prefer to move to an urbanisation in the outskirts for a peaceful life.

The urbanisations that we are going to refer you to here are an excellent alternative to the centre of Valencia. This is due, on the one hand, to the fact that they offer all kinds of services and, on the other, they are close to the historic centre and enjoy excellent transport links. These are exclusive places in which to live a calm and tranquil life with all kinds of comforts.

Mas Camarena

This is a housing development located in the municipality of Bétera, less than 9 kilometres from the historic centre of Valencia. It has 1200 homes located near the facilities of the Technological Park of Paterna and has excellent access to the CV-35 road to the capital, and the A-7, which runs along the Mediterranean coast. It also has a direct bus line that facilitates access to the epicentre of the town.

It is usual that in this type of housing development, the owners do not reside there during most of the year. However, this is not the case in Mas Camarena as what makes it a great place to live in is its tranquility. Its exclusive character is evident in the fact that it has an equestrian school, sports facilities of all kinds, restaurants and even a social club. Security is also guaranteed thanks to its 24-hour surveillance service.

This residential complex will be ideal for golf lovers. Its facilities are located around the Scorpion club.

In addition, it is ideal for both experienced players and those who are taking their first steps in learning about this sport.

To all this we must add that the complex has a bilingual and private school inside. In fact, this can boast of being the third in terms of the average grade of their students in the university entrance exams in the entire Valencian Community, which confirms the school's high demand and great work.
