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.

We enjoyed spending time by the pool and relaxing in the beautiful garden with its many seating areas. We loved eating dinner (cooked on the excellent BBQ) on the terrace with wonderful views to the coast and to the mountains. Casares was a pretty Andalucian village to explore, we enjoyed having breakfast here of pan tostado con tomates y aceite in the main square. Not only was the villa beautiful, but the organisation was very slick. Lolita was extremely helpful and efficient with the booking process, Karin was very welcoming and helpful when we arrived, and the Spanish housekeeper, Dominga, cooked us a delicious paella one evening which we can highly recommend. The track up to the house is steep but manageable! We would love to come back, we had a wonderful holiday. Thank you to Lolita & Colin.
