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.

Apartment had wifi and all the UK channels which was ideal for a lazy day. Accommodation had everything you could need, was as per the website 'home away from home'. Beach was across the road and marina, which has lively restaurants and bars was five minute walk. View from apartment is of mountains opposed to pool/sea but as a result you have the setting sun from 5pm, so lovely for an evening on the veranda. We hired a car as we planned on travelling about and distance from airport, but could have easily holidayed without as everything on your door step (even a local fish+chip shop). The area itself is not commercial when compared to Fuengirola etc., and that it my opinion adds to the beauty of it. We went sea fishing for a day, with tour provided by local guy in the marina (no big fishes on the day, plenty of mackerel so the boys enjoyed). The weeks we travelled included first week of July which resulted in us being present for the Sabinilis and Estepona festivals. Estepona is 10 min drive, whereas Sabinilis is 10 min walk on the prom. Would I return to same resort and same apartment? Definitely! Kudos to Greig for a well organised holiday (our first time using this website). Also, deposit refunded as advertised, all in all a very professional service. Regards, holidayers from West coast of Ireland.
