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.

The casa is very tastefully decorated with artistic touches throughout. The bathroom is brand new with an excellent shower. We slept very well all week. The outdoor space is shady and pleasant and there is a beautiful restful area for guests as well with a fountain and hammocks. We love the organic natural way of life, with friendly dogs, cats and chickens and Juan Antonio is a very friendly host. The casas are located in a beautiful lush green garden. El Palmar is perfect for those who like a wild beach and just a handful of amenities. There is a supermarket about 20 minutes away which has lots of fresh produce and a fishmongers as well. There are 3 good restaurants serving local fish and quite a few cafes. When the surf is up you can still swim at the next beach Zahora or small beaches to the west of Conil which is a town worth visiting. Vejer is also nearby, a stunning town set up in the hills.

It is light, airy and certainly spacious enough for the 2 of us! The recent renovation has been done with care; the kitchen is well stocked and the living room furniture is more comfortable than many places we've stayed in. Outside living is very good. The patio/terrace with barbecue is party shaded. The garden is more than big enough and the pool useful for cooling down in. 2 chaps come in regularly - 1 to look after the pool and 1 does the garden. It is useful to speak some Spanish in this area and you will need your own transport. All in all a lovely, quiet, peaceful and private place to spend time.

                                                                                                      We, a family of four with two boys (11 and 8), stayed in Casa de Maria this summer for two weeks. Casa de Maria is a cosy house, thoughtfully equipped with everything a family needs. Juan Antonio designed the interior very artfully, with handpicked decorative items, nice furniture and the highlight being the sculptured bed side tables reminding of Gaudi’s architecture. We loved to take our meals on the terrace in front of the house which is surrounded by beautiful flowering vines offering privacy and shade during the heat of the day. Only a few minutes walking distance away from El Palmar beach (water and beach, both very clean), Casa de Maria is located in a private estate amidst a garden with lush greenery and a little pond – giving the whole property the touch of an oasis. The garden offers space and privacy to chill in comfortable hammocks and a brick BBQ with a seating corner can be used to have romantic meals in the garden. The absolute highlight for our kids were definitely the lovely animals. Juan Antonio has three dogs that are all very friendly, a number of cute cats and some chicken from which you can get really fresh eggs. Juan Antonio is a wonderful host. He is always approachable and happy to help with any question you may have, including translating when local farmers or fishermen come to offer their products at the gate (we had delicious fruits and fresh fish from them). We will definitely be back. Hasta pronto Juan Antonio, Konstantin, Vincent, Alex y Kat
