El Vedat

El VedatEl Vedat is a development located on the small mountain of the same name, in the municipality of Torrente 9 kilometres from Valencia city centre. The prestigious residential area sits 142 metres above sea level on the edge of the Sierra Perenxisa, whereas the town centre of Torrente can be found at the bottom. The name Vedat refers to the fact that the area was a private territory (vedado) belonging to some monks in the Middle Ages.

El Vedat combines living in a tranquil natural area with close proximity to amenities and leisure activities. Situated adjacent to Torrente centre, the mountain is rich in vegetation and Aleppo pines. The road to the town centre features the Las Américas shopping centre which contains a supermarket, shops and restaurants. Torrente is the third largest town in the province with 80,000 inhabitants, therefore all amenities can be found close by.

The A-7 motorway, which runs the length of the east coast of Spain, provides access to the rest of the country. The international airport is located 12 kilometres to the north of El Vedat in Manises and offers daily international and national flights. The metro is another fantastic mode of transport, especially useful when travelling to the city so as to avoid traffic and parking problems.
