Make a holiday rental villa or property in Jimena de la Frontera, Spain your home away from home

Nestled high in the Los Alcornocales Natural Park above Sotogrande is the beautiful historic village of Jimena de la Frontera, Spain. As soon as you enter the village through the impressive triple arched gate you will be endeared to this tiny yet grand Andalucian whitewashed village. There is a long and often violent history to the village which has helped in keeping both the town and its inhabitants close-nit and delightfully peaceful. If you are looking for a relaxing, natural destination to take your holiday, a Jimena de la Frontera property is the perfect option.

Things to do on holiday in Jimena de la Frontera, Spain

Many people take day trips to Jimena de la Frontera just to see the beautiful white washed village itself and to wander slowly through the cobbled streets up to the Moorish castle around which the village is build. However, those who do not take a Jimena de la Frontera property in the village itself miss out on really getting to know the village and possibly more importantly, never get to explore the beautiful and varied countryside which surrounds the village. The forested slopes of the mountains are filled with native wildlife and the plains below the village are awash with the colour and smell of thriving citrus groves.

The Los Alcornocales Natural Park is the perfect place to visit for those who would like to really see the Spanish countryside at its best. There is a range of excellent walking and cycling trails throughout the park, made especially attractive by the possibility of meeting some of the local wildlife, from boars to cats at any time.

Although Jimena de la Frontera is a small village, it has some excellent cuisine which is unique to the area. Local restaurants serve delicious yet simple local recipes, including Revuelto de esparragos (asparagus and egg), chantarella (local mushrooms) and pinonate for those with a sweet tooth which needs satisfying. There are some excellent festivals and fiestas throughout the year in which these foods play an important part. The Village Carnival in February, Agricultural Fair in May, Music Festival in July and the Annual Village Fair in August all make exceptional times to visit a Jimena de la Frontera property when the village is at its best.

Joanna and her dog Ozo were friendly hosts. The garden is a generous with mandarin trees and other fruits. Ozo played with our youngest dog and there where plenty of space to go around with the dogs. The casa was wonderful with very equipment kitchen and a washing & drying machine. There are two bathrooms, which is very comfortable, but the water pressure was a little weak. There is no curtains or shutters in downstairs, which bothers us a bit, because we are use to privacy. Wifi worked well enough and that was very important to us, because we teleworking. That period were very cold (in particular nights and one day there where even 10 cm snowing). We bought a pellets heating (4 €/15 kg, we used about 20 sacks) and gas to warm water (gas is quite cheap in Spain) and also we paid the extra money (150 €) for electricity. The rural village is a beautiful with very friendly people and there are also some shops where you get some basic food items. It was a bit hard to drive around, because the roads are narrow and curved. We have a 5,4 m long van and it takes us about 1 hour to drive for the first 30 km in any direction. The vehicle is must.

Second month the weather was wetter and cooler but we were able to sit out on the lovely roof top terrace most days. Much better than England. Location of the apartment is very good, being a 15 minute stroll down hill into the beautiful Estepona, with many lovely restaurants and bars. Also very close to the Carrefour for shopping, which has pretty well everything you could need. I personally preferred the Mercadona and many fresh fish shops which are on the edge of town where prices and products are more Spanish. Particularly good for people watching. The apartment had everything you could want in terms of facilities but we particularly appreciated the English TV which made it seem like a home from home. Wifi worked well. Car parking under the apartment block was also very useful on the odd wet day or when bringing back shopping We had a couple of very minor issues that Alex resolved for us very quickly. Very helpful indeed and much appreciated. The only downside to me was some road noise, due to the fact that I live in such a quiet area myself. After a little while you don't notice this and it wouldn't put me off returning. I believe it was a five star break in a five star apartment

It has a beautiful sunny terrace, also perfect for midnight bbq. Comfortable beds. Begoña, the owner, was extremely kind, gave us several sightseeing hints. I really recommend it.
