An ideal climate throughout the year, its geographical location, cost of living, gastronomy, air quality, safety; among other factors, have led our city, Valencia, to be chosen for the second consecutive year as the healthiest city on the planet in which to live, leading the ranking of 20 cities conducted by the consulting firm monkey.co.uk.
Beyond our outstanding work team and optimal facilities for the development of tennis players, Valencia is positioned as a great destination for many players who want to pursue the dream of becoming professionals, with a friendly, welcoming metropolis that provides all the elements for the most pleasant stay 365 days a year.
In these times, where humanity is still fighting against the pandemic, the study contemplated new statistics, such as available social workers and psychologists or access to healthcare. In addition to this, the renowned Spanish Mediterranean diet, a “moderate” cost of living, a stable climate without major temperature changes, the city’s enormous cultural and musical heritage, its social integration indexes, the high number of sunny days per year, among other factors, provide more reasons to choose this city as the ideal place. The consultant even highlighted the “nutritional value of paella”, our culinary specialty.
