We could all do with a shot of dazzling Mediterranean light in winter. With its extraordinary buildings, great shops, lively restaurant scene, and miles of beaches, Valencia is a great place to do so – especially as it is often warm enough to sit outside in the sunshine.
So says the wonderful Annie Bennett (pictured right), The Telegraph’s destination expert for Spain in an article published today. Annie has been living in Spain on and off since the 1980s, and has won several awards, including Spain Travel Writer of the Year. We’re thrilled that Valencia continues to be highly regarded by the Telegraph, as this reinforces our argument that Valencia rightly deserves to be recognised as a world-class city for tourism.
The article continues:
A decade of bold development has given Spain’s third-largest city some of the most striking architecture in the country, adding to the wealth of elegant art nouveau buildings that line the streets, as well as Gothic and Renaissance monuments.

Annie has also reviewed the Caro Hotel. She describes the hotel as:
An elegant palace in the city centre where vestiges of Valencia’s origins form part of the décor. Decorated by the Barcelona designer Francesc Rifé. the 26 rooms are all different, with soothing, neutral tones offsetting the many and varied original features. The Meta bar on the ground floor serves everything from coffee to cocktails and has a groovy terrace on top of the Arab city wall.
We look forward to many more positive articles this year – we have already enjoyed some excellent articles in 2013, including a seven-page article in Easyjet’s in-flight magazine.
