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.

Well appointed apartment in good location

4 of 5
This is a large well furnished apartment, in a secure gated complex, overlooking the harbour. Probably one of the best locations in the harbour area. There is a large terrace, with ample furniture, and which gets the sun from early morning to around 4pm (in June). The terrace can get a little noisy, from the bars across the road, but we didn't notice this indoors. In fact the two bedrooms both have two separate layers of glass windows, which completely shut out any noise. All windows and doors to the terrace have lockable metal grills, plus shutters, and there are two electrically operated blinds for shade when needed. There is simple to use, and very efficient air-conditioning in all rooms, which was very welcome, particularly at night. There is a brand new flat screen TV with "European channels", though most of them appear to be German language, but his wasn't an issue for us. The apartment is in generally good condition for it's age and rental cost. The kitchen is par for the course for a Spanish apartment, and we found it to be very well equiped. There were only two unfortunate downsides to the apartment and complex. After the first few days we started finding cockroaches both on the terrace and inside. It seemed to be an issue they knew about, as there were traps in the bathrooms, plus more un-used ones in a cupboard. It didn't particularly bother me, but my wife wasn't impressed. The other issue is the resident cats. I don't know if they belong to anyone, but I suspect they are strays. Again, not an issue for me, until I trod in cat poo by one of the swimming pools, in bare feet, not a pleasant experience. In fairness both of these issues are somewhat beyond the owners control. Communication with the owner was a bit hit and miss at times, but his agent Rose Marie was very helpful, and we able to keep in touch with her, as needed, via Whats App. Overall I would say this is a very pleasant holiday apartment, the two above issues aside.
