At Barracart our mission has always been to stand out for our hospitality and comfort, and also for our commitment to sustainable tourism. Hospitality is our duty and our pleasure. Both the restaurant (Casa Montaña) and the apartments (Barracart) are a passion for our family. Meeting new people is a pleasure and our understanding of the finer touches makes your stay special and Valencia a place to visit time and again. Our guests feel well attended to but free, relaxed and happy to enjoy the city, knowing that they will not lack anything.

Our intelligent building allows us to remotely control access, so there is no Front Desk in the property. Check-in is done on-line (auto check-in), which allows for independent, contact-free access to the apartments, via personalised access codes. Nevertheless we are available 24h a day by email, whatsapp or phone, and also in person at various times. Furthermore, our office may be used – upon request – for meetings, a shower after check-out, or to store suitcases. We provide our own app for customized local information, and tourist guides for culture, leisure and gastronomy. For maximum protection, in addition to the housekeeping and safety measures, we disinfect the apartments with UVC germicidal lamps.

Our bicycles are available to rent and provide a safe means of transport to discover the city. Our Travel Assistance Insurance will protect you against any unforeseen incident during your stay.

At Barracart, waste is recycled, and we minimise the use of plastic, with our reusable shopping bags, glass water bottles, no-capsule coffee machines, and fixed dispensers for the hygiene products. Our home automation system also ensures energy saving, whilst permitting maximum comfort. Day by day we use biodegradable and bulk cleaning products, supporting local commerce, and contributing our grain of sand to a more sustainable future.

For me, managing the Barracart Apartments means much more than a mere professional activity; it is actually part of a lifelong ambition. My name is Olga and I used to dream of running a small business by the sea.

Some people say, be careful with what you wish for, but my dream has come true and it is a wonderful experience.

I am Hungarian but I have lived in Valencia for more than 15 years. I consider myself passionate about this city, especially the Cabanyal – Canyamelar neighborhood where our Barracart Apartments are located.

I love the spirit of this old fishing district that still remembers a time when the neighbours knew each other by name and took their chairs out to the street to chat in the fresh air.

I am fascinated by the Mediterranean, not only for its warm waters where you can swim almost all year round, but also for the lifestyle it inspires. A casual lifestyle where the terraces are the queens of the street and invite you to socialize with a tapa, and a beer or glass of wine.

Residents of Cabanyal – Canyamelar are very friendly and will welcome you with open arms because tourism is one of the reasons why the neighborhood is experiencing its second youth. It’s with good reason that it´s given the nickname of “Notting Hill Valencian” and we´ve been highlighted as one of the top 10 neighborhoods in Europe.

These reasons, together with my personal connection with Valencia, encouraged us to establish Barracart tourist apartments. An experience that delivers so much more than just holiday rental.

I would love to be your ambassador for Barracart, as well as for Cabanyal and “los Poblados Marítimos”. I will do everything possible to make you feel at home and at the same time integrated into the neighborhood. I will therefore keep you informed about the best cultural, gastronomic and leisure proposals in Cabanyal and Valencia.

We have taken great care to furnish and decorate the with local details that will let you better understand what Valencia is like: crafts, canvases, antiques etc. There are also a selection of elements from the daily life from the early 20th century, when the house – that today accommodates the Barracart Apartments – was built. Popular modernism is part of the idiosyncrasy of this neighborhood and our apartments. I warn you that you will be surprised when you realize that you are in a house of modernism, but in a totally modern house!

If you are looking for a city-break or a genuine vacation where the sea, gastronomy and cultural immersion are key, El Cabanyal – Canyamelar is your neighborhood and Barracart is your accommodation in Valencia.

I invite you to enter our website and follow us on SN so that you can familiarize yourself with your apartment and the neighbourhood.

I am convinced that you will fall in love with Valencia, el Cabanyal and the Poblados Marítimos (Maritime Villages) as I have done.

I look forward to seeing you in Valencia!

Manager Barracart Apartments

Worldlando, the international travel YouTuber told us: Guys! The Cabanyal – Canyamelar is on trend!

With his charming Argentinian accent, Worldlando explained that he had already heard about our Cabanyal – Canyamelar neighbourhood, and that he could not wait to visit us as he was going to spend the summer in Valencia.

Of course we therefore organized, together with some other residents of the neighbourhood, a guided tour so that no MUST-SEES of Cabanyal – Canyamelar were missed!

Worldlando confessed that we exceeded his expectations, and this statement coming from an expert traveller has filled us with pride.

Worldlando is a journalist but in recent years he has redirected his career to travel video blogs. With little more than a backpack and yes, a lot of enthusiasm, he travels the world, letting himself be carried away by the compass of his intuition and by the attractions of tourist destinations.

After the tour of the neighbourhood, he declares himself a self-confessed fan of Valencia and Cabanyal – Canyamelar.

This is his testimony:
“Visiting Cabanyal – Canyamelar was a great surprise. I had read and heard before arriving and chatted with my friends from Valencia, but visiting this neighbourhood far exceeded my expectations.
First of all, a story that keeps you in suspense while you listen to it, seeing its houses, its colours, its tiles is a beauty to behold and finally, something that fascinates me a lot in each place I visit is its gastronomy and the comfort.
Taking a few minutes and enjoying a good meal or a good dinner at Casa Montaña is an enchanting experience. Then relaxing in one of the most beautiful places in the neighbourhood such as Barracart made my days at Cabanyal – Canyamelar unique, and I recommend them to all my friends from now on.”

We invite you to watch his video about the Cabanyal – Canyamelar where a review of our Barracart Apartments appears and his particular vision as an expert traveller of what we are and what we offer as a neighbourhood: beaches, Mediterranean lifestyle, popular modernism, culture, gastronomy, nightlife.

We also invite you to view his video of Valencia with a successful selection of 20 emblematic tourist spots of the city. A video whose views continue to shoot up.

TeleAire loves Cabanyal

Teleaire, the prestigious travel and tourism experiences channel, broadcasts a report about our Cabanyal – Canyamelar neighborhood, making mention of our apartments Barracart.

Alejandro Martinez Notte, director of Teleaire, is a minimalist Argentine who with little more than a camera, microphone and four changes of clothes travels the world sharing with his audience his particular vision of destinations.

Martinez Notte visited us in February and he liked the Cabanyal – Canyamelar so much that he has returned in the summer with his colleague and friend Worldlando, another globetrotting youtuber (here is the link to the Worldlando video).

With respect to other tourist reports, the Teleaire program keeps the peculiarity of giving voice to neighbours and entrepreneurs who have been able to explain in the first person who we are and the social, political and economic situation that the neighbourhood has experienced during the last decades. A monographic report that broadens the traditional tourist vision and delves into the feelings of the neighbours.

These are Martinez Notte’s words about the Martinez Notte about the Cabanyal – Canyamelar neighborhood and about our Barracart apartments:
“I am a digital nomad and I have travelled all over the world, so I dare to confirm that Valencia is a Mediterranean jewel that no one should miss; Nor should anyone miss one of its star neighbourhoods, I refer to the picturesque Cabanyal – Canyamelar.
A neighbourhood that smells of the sea, traditions, culture, tapas, paella and bohemia. It is like a small town camouflaged in a big city. I have been very pleasantly surprised by its modernist coloured houses and the popularity that this recognized area is acquiring, visited by tourists from all over the world.
El Cabanyal – Canyamelar contains the paradox of being cosmopolitan and picturesque, traditional and modern at the same time. I came for the first time in February and I have returned in August, and I can see that the neighbourhood is changing at a dizzying speed. In a few months, dozens of recently renovated houses, new shops and restaurants have appeared. It really is highly recommended.
As accommodation my indisputable proposal are the Barracart apartments. When you travel continuously, there comes a time when you get tired of hotels that look like hotels and what you want is to feel at home. Barracart offers this peculiarity. It is a restored house full of surprising details such as a headboard that is an old door, a vintage desk, a Zen corner to read without being disturbed. It is the ideal rest for traveling warriors.”

Here is the link of the Teleaire video about the Cabanyal – Canyamelar and our Barracart Apartments.

The famous travel blog Vero4travel recommends visiting our loved neighborhood of Cabanyal – Canyamelar and, what´s more, she also refers to our Barracart apartments as preferred accommodation!

We love these recommendations from professional voices. The residents of Cabanyal – Canyamelar proclaim the tourist virtues of the neighbourhood, however, these words are issued by established travellers who travel the world, as is the case with Vero4travel.

The Vero4travel blog is considered one of the Bibles of Spanish-speaking travellers. It is no surprise that it is one of the most read blogs in Spain. The blog is run by brother and sister Vero and Jesús. They travel to the north, south, east and west of the planet to inform us of their unoque advice on what to do, see, visit and eat in the destinations they visit.

Vero4travel dedicates this affectionate testimonial that we share with you:
“We had already read in The Guardian that Cabanyal – Canyamelar was one of the coolest neighbourhoods in all of Europe and now after our visit we can corroborate it. We knew that a few years ago it had been a neighbourhood neglected by the administrations; a peripheral area only valued by its residents. But what we have found today is a cultural, gastronomic and leisure beacon.
We have loved walking through its colourful streets that in a certain way have reminded us of London’s Notting Hill. Hundreds of multi-colored houses that preserve the charm of popular modernism of the early 20th century.
In addition, the location of the neighbourhood is another attraction. El Cabanyal – Canyamelar is next to the promenade and the beaches of Valencia which are spectacular. As the Mediterranean climate is so mild, you can enjoy a paella with sea views practically all year round.
After our experience in Cabanyal – Canyamelar, we could not conceive of a view of Valencia without including this neighbourhood and of course the beaches of Las Arenas (now renamed Playa del Cabanyal), La Malvarrosa and La Patacona. And of course the sizzling area of the Marina.
Of all the accommodations in the neighbourhood, we chose the Barracart Apartments. I find the rehabilitation that they have made of this modernist house now converted into tourist accommodation fascinating. The Barracart apartments have tradition, they have taste, they have that “je ne sais quoi” that makes you feel that you are enjoying a unique experience in your destination.”

Here is the POST about Cabanyal-Canyamelar published on the Vero4travel blog.

If you are going to visit Cabanyal – Canyamelar be sure to read it because it gives a very informative insight into the origin of the neighbourhood and many practical tips on what to do and see to make the most of your visit to Cabanyal – Canyamelar.

The countless available activities show that Valencia is back in Mode On! Valencians love parties and events so much so that the city hosts events of all kinds (What to do..) throughout the year. From the most traditional festivities such as Christmas, Carnival, Fallas, the Maritime Holy Week, Corpus Christi and the festivities of San Vicente Ferrer, San Vicente Martir, San Antonio Abad, and la Mare de Deu, La Cruz de Mayo, the Feria de July or the Valencian Community Day. To large international sporting events such as the Moto GP, the Valencia Trinidad Alfonso Marathon, the Boat Show, and urban festivals, such as Cabañal Intim, La Cabina or Valéncia Intramurs. Besides these, there is also the wide range of conferences and trade fairs.

Valencia is the Spanish city with the most musical societies. Therefore the number of cultural centres and rooms where you can enjoy live music come as no surprise. From classical reference points such as the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, the Palau de la Música, or Berklee College, to festivals and intimate live music venues playing rock, jazz, flamenco, electronic or indie music.

Valencia is also nature, boasting around 5 km of picturesque and comfortable urban beaches. Furthermore it is surrounded by the Mediterranean Orchard – recognized by the UN as a world agricultural heritage site, which is unique and highly appreciated for its cultural, gastronomic and landscape value. In addition, it also includes, as the jewel in the crown, the Albufera Natural Park.

The Covid-19 pandemic has temporarily slowed but not stopped the vibrant local life, generating reflection and awareness. With the goal of converting the city into an international reference as a Sustainable Destination, Valencia has incorporated 17 of the most relevant sustainable developments, as defined by the 2030 Climate Emergency Agenda.

In Barracart Apartments we provide a cultural calendar to all our guests, as well as any assistance needed so that our visitors fully enjoy this great city, Valencia, indisputably in Mode On!
