Make a holiday villa in La Janda your home away from home

La Janda villas will provide you with a comfortable patch of rural Andalucia, just in from the Costa de la Luz. Most holiday homes in La Janda are fitted with private pools and in your spacious garden you'll be able admire the scenery over a barbecue on a balmy summer evening. Holiday villas in La Janda are upmarket modern constructions, large enough to cater to extended families and groups of friends. There's plenty to enjoy in the area - gorgeous sandy beaches, ancient Roman towns and a host of first-rate golf courses.

Things to do

-Local history. Medina Sidonia is a hill-top town with an interesting history that goes back to Roman times. Today it has medieval ramparts that include Moorish gates and cobblestone streets lined with handsome whitewashed houses. On Calle Espiritu Santo you'll even be able to see evidence of the town's original Roman sewers, while sights like the baroque Town Hall and the gothic Santa Maria la Coronado church reward closer inspection.

-Beaches. South of La Janda is Barbate, home to some of the most appealing beaches on the Costa de la Luz. A top beach for swimmers is Zahora, which can be accessed via a footpath. It's sheltered from the wind, so the waters are calm, and there are superb facilities in the summer. More exposed is Canos de Meca, which has fabulous scenery, including 100-metre-tall cliffs, and is great for watersports like windsurfing.

-Golf. There are no fewer than ten golf courses within an hour radius of La Janda. Particularly close is Benalup Golf, which is part of a five-star resort, but is open to the public. The 18-hole course here has fantastic views, with the Alcornacarles Natural Park towering in the background. Dehesa de Montenmedio is a little way south, and is distinctive for its complete lack of development; no villas or holiday communities, just tranquil nature all around.

-Cadiz. This city is claimed to be the oldest not just in Spain, but in western Europe. It was established by the Phoenicians 3000 years ago, and you can see artefacts from this time at the city's Archaeological Museum on Plaza de Mina. There's also a Roman theatre, which was only discovered in 1980, and would have been able to seat 20,000 spectators in its heyday. The city's cathedral is an interesting mix of baroque and rococo styles.

-Cuisine. The nearby city of Jerez is famously associated with the designation of origin brandy produced here. Some of the distillation techniques used today date back to Moorish times. Set close to the coast, there's exquisite shellfish available in La Janda, especially prawns and lobsters. Fish like bream and bass are also popular baked, grilled or fried in this part of Spain.

Weather in La Janda

La Janda gets weather that is typical for southern European locations. Here the summers are warm and bright - the nearby city of Cadiz is the fourth sunniest city in Spain, with over 3000 hours of sunshine a year. May through October temperatures rise to the high-20s and low-30s. In some inland regions daily temperatures in July and August can peak above 35 degrees. If you get to a La Janda holiday rental between November and March then mild weather awaits, with highs in the upper-teens.

Travel to La Janda

La Janda holiday homes can be reached from the UK via Jerez Airport (XRY). This destination gets most of its traffic in the summer months, when it handles a host of low-cost routes from Britain and other countries in central and northern Europe. From the airport you can take the A-381 southeast towards the La Janda area. Other airports in the region are Seville (SVQ) about 90 minutes to the north, and Gibraltar (GIB), which is just over an hour to the east.

Tranquility and 15minutes from the beach!

5 of 5
The house has everything you need for your stay. It is in the grounds of the owners and other guests but feels very very private. Beautiful trees, flowers, waking up to the sound of birds and a lovely outside dining area (or yoga area in our case). Comfy beds and has the benefit of a dishwasher. The hosts are lovely and accommodating but don't impose on you in any way. We had a lovely stay..many thanks xx

Great stay

5 of 5
Thank you Juan Antonio, we had a wonderful stay at your lovely place. Everything was as nice as we expected, and especially the kids loved your animals. Just to make the arrival easier, you could probably give a precise descripton of the way to your place and point out your phone number once more when contacting your guests. Hope to see you again some day, hasta luego! Yours, Holger and Family
