About Jude and Clive Wiseman

Clive and I moved to Spain in 2005 and bought our first little house in Alcala de los Gazules. Clive had just retired from teaching modern languages (very useful!), and I had worked as a garden designer. We completely 'reformed' Casa Vista but kept the Andalusian character. We subsequently bought and sold another house and then our own house - but Casa Vista was, and is, our favourite house. In fact, if it were a bit bigger, we would definitely live in it ourselves We live on the other side of the village from Casa Vista and spend our time (Clive) writing books and I enjoy painting portraits. We try to play golf each week in nearby Jerez. There are a few other 'Brits' living here and the local people are extremely friendly and helpful. The countryside around is wonderful and there's always somewhere new to explore. There are so many 'fiestas' going on during the year and the Alcalainos love it if we join in with their celebrations.

Jude and Clive Wiseman purchased this house in 2005

Why Jude and Clive Wiseman chose Alcala de los Gazules

Our little house is perfect for couples but can easily accommodate another couple on the sofa bed in the top room. We stayed in the house ourselves to make sure everything needed for a 'home from home' stay was there. Everything is provided (and that includes toilet paper!) so only food shopping is necessary. We always arrange to meet our guests to hand over the keys and are 'on hand' if there is a problem. A welcoming bowl of fruit, milk and water (plus sundry other basics) are provided at the start of the holiday.

What makes this house unique

Alcala de los Gazules is perfectly positioned for visiting the beaches, Jerez de la Frontera, Cadiz, Gibraltar, Seville and all the other 'white villages' in the area. It retains it's very Spanish character if you are looking for the 'real Spain' but also has a very special International Music Festival every year in August with instrumentalists from the top London orchestras, and soloists to match. There is always something of interest 'going on' in the town/village and just enough English speakers to help out if necessary! Alcala is perfectly situated for sightseeing with the virtually empty motorway A381 linking Jerez, Seville, Cadiz, Gibraltar, Algeciras and the Costa del Sol .

We spent five days in this traditional three-storey character house situated in the mountain town of Alcala de los Gazules in the province of Cadiz.

This small clean two-bedroom house has been renovated to a high standard and is fully equipped and suitable for a family. We particularly liked the new kitchen and the two sundecks overlooking a natural park. The house is located centrally in an area which allows one to explore this interesting province.

The town itself has a number of restaurants and bars for those not wishing to prepare their own food along with small shops that stock a variety of groceries.

The locals are friendly and will assist with directions although a navigation system is helpful especially when entering and leaving the town.

At the start of your holiday you will meet the owners, Jude and Clive, who are welcoming and speak a variety of European languages. They are also very well informed about the amenities of the town and the wider area.

We enjoyed the short time we spent in this area giving us an insight into the Spanish way of life in a small town and would recommend this holiday accommodation.

Jude y Clive fueron muy atentos y cordiales y nos facilitaron todo lo necesrio para pasar unos buenos días de vacaciones. La casa estaba en perfectas condiciones tanto de limpieza como de equipo. Es una casa magnifica, muy coqueta y con mucho detalle, está todo muy cuidado y dispone de una terraza con unas vistas preciosas. Está muy bien ubicada para disfrutar tanto de la sierra como del litoral de la porvincia de Cádiz.

"Nuestra estadía en Alcalá fue excepcional, gracias a la calidez y los detalles de Jude y Clive, que son unas personas muy respetuosas y agradables. Hablan español, inglés y francés ( Clive) Jude ha decorado la casa con gusto. Se puede aprovechar las dos terrazas. En agosto hay un festival de música clásica. El pueblo es muy agradable, hay una bicisenda que se puede usar para correr también a la entrada de Alcalá. Nuestra estadía fue maravillosa.
Notre séjour à Alcalá a été exceptionnel grâce à l’accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires. La maison sur plusieurs étages est idéale pour un séjour romantique, tout est décoré avec goût ! Nous avons bien profité des deux terrasses pour prendre notre petit déjeuner. Nous avons pu faire du jogging très tôt à l’entrée du village, il y a une piste cyclable que les gens utilisent plutôt pour faire du jogging ou de la marche. Par hasard, nous avons pu profiter du Festival de Musique classique au mois d’août.
Nous ne voulions plus partir ! Très bon point de départ pour visiter les alentours et retourner au calme, loin du tourisme de masses
