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.

Wonderful Villa in lovely position near Casares

5 of 5
The listing about the property was very accurate. The views from the villa were stunning. It was very private and quiet. The house is designed for the summer heat so the bedrooms are downstairs with the living property being upstairs. We did get a bit cold in the evening downstairs even with heating but it was April! There was plenty of room for being sociable or for spending time away from others. The swimming pool was quite small but it was heated and that was fab in April when it could be quite windy. We swam every day. Pool towels were provided which was brilliant and meant we didn't have to bring them. It was lovely to sit and read on the sun loungers and look out on the beautiful views. The kitchen was well supplied - we often find that holiday houses lack a lot of kitchen items but this one was great. Everything was well-maintained and worked! Plenty of hot water. Comfortable beds. Spare bedding. Washing machine and drying equipment. The property was very clean and well looked after. Karin was very welcoming and provided us with helpful information. She was also very nice when she came to say goodbye. We were able to stay beyond the normal leaving time because no one was booked in for a few days. We would definitely recommend this property to others. We did find the roads quite scary and our hire car wasn't very happy about the drive up to the villa!! A lot of the local restaurants were closed in the evenings (except at the weekends) as it was out of season. But it's a beautiful area and we had a lovely time there. We did a two hour walk to Casares which is such a beautiful village.
