La Eliana urbanization

La ElianaThe municipality of La Eliana, home to 16,000 inhabitants, is located 13 kilometres north west of Valencia. The origin of the area dates back to the 16th century when the Valencian Carmelites bought some hectares of land which nowadays forms the town centre. The name of La Eliana derives from Saint Elias, the founder of the Order of the Carmelites.

La Eliana is a singular municipality in that the centre and the residential areas are geographically united, as opposed to other towns whose layouts are more widely dispersed. Owing to the flat terrain there are no natural obstacles which determine and separate the different developments. Therefore people tend to refer to the whole area (aside from perhaps Montesol) as La Eliana whether it be the residential areas or the town centre.

Owing to its close proximity to Valencia, La Eliana offers quick and easy access to all necessary amenities. The shopping centre El Osito, as well as various supermarkets, shops and businesses, can be found within the town. La Eliana offers 4 metro stations meaning that you are never far from one, making travelling around the region easy. Despite its closeness to the city La Eliana further features the Vallesa forest, a natural Mediterranean beauty spot filled with pine and holm oak trees located to the southeast of the town. This results in a fantastic place to walk, horse ride or practice sports such as cycling and motocross.

Golf lovers will be happy to hear that the sensational Escorpión golf club finds itself just 5 kilometres from La Eliana. The renowned 27 hole golf course is divided into three groups of 9 holes, meaning that it’s possible to create three different 18 hole rounds. The course is amateur-friendly as well as being enjoyable for the more experienced golfers. Designed by the American Ron Kirby, the course further enjoys the beauty of the surrounding Mediterranean vegetation and the irregular land relief.

Valencia is also home to other golf courses such as Manises Golf Club located 15 kilometres away, El Bosque in Chiva some 25 kilometres away and El Saler which can be found 35 kilometres away.

Another great advantage of living in the province of Valencia is its closeness to the sea. The perfect combination of the mild climate and the tranquility of the Mediterranean Sea means that Valencia is the ideal place to enjoy the beach and sailing opportunities. Although not directly on the coast, La Eliana is still in close proximity to the sea. 20 kilometres to the east one can find Port Saplaya which offers exceptional beaches and a marina. Other ports in the area include that of Pobla de Farnals and the Port America’s Cup in Valencia city. Famous beaches in the region include Patacona in Alboraya, and Malvarrosa and Las Arenas, both of which are in Valencia city.
