Digital nomads are chasing the best monthly rentals in Valencia

Valencia has been voted best city in the world for expats, as reported in Forbes magazine. While that is great news at one level, it also means that it is increasingly becoming more popular. The downside is that it means digital nomads are chasing the best monthly rentals in Valencia. Demand is outstripping supply. That is where Globexs comes in. Globexs is a platform for temporary rentals of furnished apartments for expats, digital nomads and businesses. Its slogan is “Expat and expat mobility”, meaning we help you to achieve your dream of living abroad. Our properties are available for rentals from 1 – 11 months, in destinations across Europe. We are especially active in Valencia and Madrid.

Why Globexs for getting a monthly rental in Valencia?

Valencia is Spain’s third largest city, with a population of 736,000 in the urban area. This rises to 1.3 million when you include the suburbs and small nearby towns. So it means that digital nomads who are chasing the best monthly rentals in Valencia theoretically have a huge choice. That said, its massive surge in popularity in recent years means that availability can be an issue. With Globexs, we work with landlords who trust us to find them good tenants. That means that availability is not an issue. If it is on our site, it’s available. And our prices include all bills and services, including wifi, energy and cleaner once a week.

Welcome to Valencia!

Although we cover the whole of Europe, Valencia is our first love. In fact, it is where our principal office is based. We live here ourselves and that is why we are so keen to help digital nomads chasing the best monthly rentals in Valencia. It is a really beautiful city. Its offering of green spaces and astonishing architecture have made it the European Commission’s Green Capital of Europe for 2024. 

That said, it is less of a city than a collection of neighbourhoods, and everywhere is pretty much walkable. Three of the key areas are the Old Town – Ciutat Vella – that dates back in parts to Roman times and the Middle Ages. The City of Arts and Sciences – Ciudad de las Artes y las Ciencias, dominated by futuristic buildings. The architect was local boy, Santiago Calatrava. You’ll likely have seen them in sci-fi films that include Westworld, Dr Who, and the Star Wars franchise. And the third talking point is the river, El Turia. After a devastating flood in 1957, the town hall planners took the decision to divert it and created a beautiful park in the riverbed. It runs 9km from west to east, and is manicured and landscaped. It has been described as Europe’s most beautiful urban park. And being criss-crossed by mediaeval stone bridges adds to your sense of wonder as you walk through the park beneath. 

Best neighbourhoods for temporary rentals in Valencia

At Globexs, we have it covered for you. All areas and all budgets. Here are three of the most popular neighbourhoods for digital nomads chasing monthly rentals.

El Carmen

One of the most visited parts of Valencia. El Carmen is right by the Old Town, and essentially part of Ciutat Vella. It starts by the cathedral and Plaza de la Virgen, and includes the Torres de Serranos y Torres Quart. These once formed part of the city walls and allowed entrance to the Old Town. It’s a maze of narrow, cobbled streets. The neighbourhood is abuzz with cafes, bars, tapas restaurants and late night haunts and clubs. It’s also home to some wonderful museums and galleries, including IVAM – Instituto Valenciano de Arte Moderno. And the wonderful art and culture museum Centro del Carmen de Cultura Contemporánea, known as CCCC. This is housed in a former 13th-century convent with a bell tower and a Gothic cloister. It’s worth visiting just for the building. The excellent exhibitions are a bonus. Free admission.


Boho-chic more your scene? Then you can’t go wrong with Ruzafa. It is central, starting just behind the main station, Estación del Norte and the bullring, Plaza de Toros. It recently got its own Metro line with its own station. So you can reach the sea and the city centre without breaking a sweat. It’s a hip neighbourhood, dominated by modernist belle epoque buildings. They are in the style of Hausmann architecture of Paris. Lots of bars, bakeries and vintage shops. And the Mercat de Russafa is a covered produce market in a pastiche of art-deco style. All life is here. And all produce as well. If it’s a social life you’re after, Ruzafa remains buzzing.  

El Cabanyal

Increasingly popular with expats and digital nomads chasing monthly rentals. El Cabanyal was once a fishing village some 5km or so from the city centre. These days, it has become a city neighbourhood. It’s a grid of streets lined with tiled fishermen’s cottages. Though mainly residential, you’ll find plenty of eateries, plus bars and clubs. It has a characteristic ambience that means that many residents don’t feel the need to leave the area. Best of all, it is by the sea, fringed by the start of several kilometres of sandy beaches. All fronted with a palm-lined shorefront esplanade.

Other neighbourhoods are now becoming popular. Patraix is a formerly very Spanish neighbourhood based around a traditional square that is close to the city centre. Benimaclet is also worth exploring, again with an old square and a fair amount of traditional housing. And neighbourhoods such as Campanar, Arrancapins and Extramurs all have their own backers. All are very well connected by Metro or tram.
