Camins al Grau
Camins al Grau is an area of Valencia articulated around the last stretch (southbound) of the renovated Turia riverbed. It is an area of expansion of the city characterised by newly constructed buildings very close to the City of Arts and Sciences. These residential buildings are located on both sides of the riverbed.
Camins al Grau is one of the most sought-after areas for buying a home and its neighbourhood is made up of many young families with children who have moved into the area in recent years.
Is the Camins al Grau area very far from the city centre?
Valencia is a smaller city than other large capitals. For this reason, it is much more friendly and manageable for locals and visitors. From Camins al Grau, if you like walking, you can reach the First and Second Ensanche in about 20 minutes. To the Ciutat Vella or Old Town we can take approximately 30 minutes. In any case, Camins al Grau is perfectly communicated with the centre of Valencia by means of the public transport.
What kind of properties can I buy in Camins al Grau?
As an expanding area of the city, Camins al Grau has many buildings that began to be built during the nineties.

Many of these buildings have added services such as a swimming pool, tennis court or paddle tennis court. Moreover, as they are recently constructed buildings, almost all of them have parking spaces in the basement for their neighbours.
The buildings, modern and with high construction qualities, house spacious homes, generally between 2 and 4 bedrooms, with terraces. These homes are adapted to the needs of families with children who have settled in this neighbourhood in recent years.
