Valencia is an amazing city, surrounded by beautiful beaches and mountains, that has a lot to offer. A lovely historical center, a Modernist project in the City of Arts and Sciences, very good infrastructures for sport, mobility with a light railway and metro, long beaches, palm tree-lined avenues, public parks such as Turia gardens around the city, and a huge offer of bars, restaurants, cultural places, and coffee-coworking places for remote workers.

Valencia is more and more attractive and known by digital nomads and expats. People from bigger cities in Europe consider they need a change in their life due to Covid situation and global awareness about living conditions. They’re looking for the perfect combination of a thriving and good-looking city, an excellent climate, and an outdoor lifestyle.

1. The cost of living

Living in Valencia is much cheaper than many other big cities in Spain and much cheaper than most places around Europe. The cost of living in Valencia is among the lowest in European big cities.

Housing, eating, drinking, and transportation costs are affordable. For example, you can rent a flat of 50m2 for €400-600 per month, including rent, bills, and internet. For a coliving place, expect more than 800-900 euros per month including amenities, commodities, networking events, coworking space, and your private bedroom.

Spring and Autumn are known to offer the best climate during the year and summers are very very hot with sometimes temperatures up to 40 °, inviting you directly to go to the beach or escape for a day on the coast. Outside lifestyle and good climate get on well together. It facilitates social interactions and happy life.

3. Coworking and coffee shops for remote workers

The city is opening more and more alternative and coworking spaces as the remote worker community grows. There are more than 60 coworking spaces now in the city, it is a sign that the city attracts and tries to develop new synergies and opportunities to increase an important collaborative professional structure in the city. Most of them also organize networking events to connect with like-minded people, and entrepreneurs in the city. Besides, some groups were created to gather this huge community to connect people easily.

4. The quality of life

Who has never dreamed of living near the beach? Living and working near the beach improves health and well-being. It is proven that people feel less stressed and live happier lives! When you add to this, the option of practicing sea sports and beach games any day of the year such as swimming, paddle surfing, kite surfing, windsurfing, kayaking, and sailing, you really feel the connection with the ocean … More surprisingly, you can find some good scuba diving spots in the Valencian area and some vineyards where you can go wine tasting.

5. The surroundings to escape your routine

One of the best things to do when you’re an expat in Valencia is to plan a trip out of the city. There are so many things to visit and explore in the surroundings, it is full of small villages, natural parks and seaside resorts such as Denia or Javea.
