Las Fallas

Stoke Travel Promo

Setting fire to things and dancing in the street.

And that’s it! What more could you want, really?

Spain is famous for its unique and crazy street festivals and this is the only one this time of year. Las Fallas takes place in Valencia, a city of just 1 million inhabitants, and this increases to around 3 million flame-lovers during the festival. Las Fallas is a festival to celebrate the coming of spring. It is a festival to wish a jubilant bon voyage to winter – and how better to farewell those cold days and even colder nights than by building giant ninots (puppets or dolls) out of cardboard, wood, paper machè and plaster… then burning them to the ground, setting off fireworks (everyone sets them off everywhere, so watch out) and, of course, drinking sangria and dancing in the streets.

The ninots are made to look lifelike and usually fit in with current events, poking fun at Spanish politicians and celebrities. The massive structures are sometimes lifted into place by cranes on the day of la plantà or the rising, and they remain here until the 19th March, the day of the burning. Young men wander around the city with axes making little hard-to-spot holes in the ninots and stuffing them full of fireworks. Just before midnight the crowds in Valencia start to chant, then the streetlights are turned off and finally at midnight the ninots are set on fire. What follows is an explosion of fireworks, fire and excitement.

  • Where the Wild Oranges roam.

    We stay just north of Valencia city, in a beach town called Puzol (Puçol in the local lingo – it’s pronounced Puthol though, confusing right?) Puzol is well connected to Valencia city, and we have our own private shuttles for Las Fallas and for visits to town. Puzol is located on a stretch of beautiful Mediterranean beaches and every year we arrive and blow the town’s collective mind.

    Our camp is beachside…. you can get out of your tent, make a beeline for the beach and be splashing about within 5 minutes of opening your sangria-soaked eye sockets. The campsite is not wild in the slightest, with full-time security, a bar, restaurant and shop onsite, a great swimming pool with slide, clean amenities, great authentic Spanish atmosphere (it’s not uncommon to be invited into a family’s caravan for a meal of authentic local paella).

    And there is so much more to the region outside of the festivities! Valencia has a wonderful old walled city, great modern architecture, clubs, restaurants, beaches and bars. It’s just wonderful! Come and see it! You’re going to love it! We adore it!

  • Enter all of your questions in the Ask a Question Tab and we’ll answer them here…

    Do you provide transport from Valencia centre?
    No, but getting to Puzol from Valencia is easy peasy and we pick you up from the train station there. We have set pickup times (9am – 8pm on the hour) and outside of that, just let us know when you are on the train from Valencia’s central station to Puzol and we’ll jump in the car and head over. See how to get there details for more info.

    What is the breakfast like?
    Breakfast is bacony and eggy and delicious. Sometimes there’a pancake or two thrown in for good measure. Our chefs are pretty frikking good at food.

    It said on the website that it is a twin tent. Can it fit two people?
    Yes, the twin tents are two-man tents. We have two-man tents, so if you are in a group of three, one of you will be tented with a new friend of the same sex. Tents are allocated on arrival, so just let us know your preferences when you arrive. We also have an option to have a private tent for a small additional fee – just in case you don’t want to share…. or if you want leave space for the hottie you’re going to meet at our campsite… You never know…

    And what amenities are offered at the camp site?
    The campsite is awesome! It has a giant pool, a playground, a cafe/restaurant, a little shop, hot showers, laundry area, parking, drinkable water, and it’s a five minute walk from the beach.

    Are there lockers where we can put our passports or other important items?
    The campsite itself has no lockers, but we a campervan which gets locked every night and we can put small valuables in there during the festival and when we’re away from the campsite.

    If we are camping does that mean we’ll be attacked by wild animals?
    We serve unlimited alcohol at our camps. You, my friend, will be the wild animal.

    Are these questions really the most frequently asked?
    No, but if you have any specific questions you must email info@stoketravel.com – the guys in the office know absolutely everything about anything.
