LEARN HOW WAS LIFE ABOUT UNDER FRANCO´S REGIME
In 2002 during our penthouse remodeling works, we find rests of different household objects hidden in a double ceiling in our apartment.
Between cutlery, kitchenware and an old kind of mattress, we found newspapers dated in 1959.
During Franco´s regime and, especially, in the few years after civil war (1939), some Republicans did hide in places as basements, double walls, etc. to avoid General Franco´s reprisals that followed after the war...

The apartment was central, located in a nice neighbourhood with plenty around to see and do. Only a short walk from the city centre. The apartment was perfect for our needs. Would recommend and would stay again. Thank you José and Alba

Everything was as expected. The flat was beautiful, and in the Centre. Only Point: bed was old and the mattress a bit too mellow. But not that worse :)

Location of the house is central, close to the lovely bars and train station. Decoration is nice. Communication with the host was efficient. Though, some modifications (fresh color on the walls, better matress) would make the experience as charming as on the photos.

Cute little apartment around 10 mins walking from the main central station (Xativa). Also the neighbourhood the apartment is located is gorgeous and very trendy, with nice coffee shops and bars. It’s a great place to base yourself for a weekend in Valencia. The beach is not far…
