Ideal village stay for two

  • 5 of 5

Angie and Pat, our hosts, live next door. They both met us on arrival and are so welcoming. They were there if anything was needed during our stay but they were never intrusive. This is a typical tiny village house. It's perfect for a couple if you want to experience the culture of this area. We used here as a base to walk from and set off on our walks from our door. All the pics here are authentic. It's a lovely house, spotless, well equipped. It has a good shower, great after a long walk. There are two great outdoor gyms for public use on the entrances to Jimena, and one is a 10 min walk away. We used these regularly on shorter walk days. This is a friendly village with good places to eat. Lovely local shop around the corner for essentials, big supermarket at the bottom of the village. We drove here, parked across the road and the car did not move again for days. We walked everywhere, discovering this delightful village and its surrounds.

We recommend this cottage

Gorgeous cottage in an authentic white village

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 2 weeks and loved it. The cottage is perfect for 2, spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated with a really comfortable bed, and excellent heating. Everything you could possibly think of is already there ... hand cream, beach towels, shopping bags, dozens of books to enjoy on the sunny terrace. The spiral staircase is steep but well worth it for lunch in the sun with a beautiful view. The lovely owners Angie and Pat live next door and couldn't be more helpful or kind. They looked after me so well when I injured my foot, even driving us to a hospital on a public holiday. Jimena is an authentic white village with plenty of walks in every direction, and with combined with Angie & Pat's hospitality a fabulous holiday is guaranteed. Can't recommend highly enough.
