The Andalucia region
The Costa de la Luz (Coast of Light) is in the southernmost region of Andalucia, between Gibraltar and Cadiz. It is a region that has miles of clean, sandy beaches, protected national parks, miles of countryside and many traditional pueblo blancos (white villages). It is an area that has escaped the excesses of tourism and commercialism and instead has retained a traditional Spanish feel.
The region will appeal to everyone whether you want to explore the Moorish architecture to be found in Jerez, visit Tarifa to enjoy the water sports and its kite-surfing beaches, cycle the Via Verde, play golf or spend your days in the Parque de los Alcornocales. For the more adventurous, Tarifa is known as the gateway to Africa and Tangier is 35 minutes on a regular fast ferry service. Jerez is connected by rail to Seville (1 hour) and Cadiz (20 minutes).
Jerez de la Frontera
Jerez de la Frontera enjoys all-year sunshine and during spring and autumn the temperatures reach into the low thirties and in July and August soar to about thirty-six degrees. Jerez is famous for many things, consequently attracting visitors for a variety of reasons. It is the home of flamenco and you can visit the flamenco quarters of Santiago and San Miguel where most of the famous singers and dancers were born and where today there are more than a dozen flamenco clubs.
The Centro Andaluz de Flameco is a museum that must be visited to fully appreciate the wealth of heritage. The Flamenco Festival in February and March is of global importance with two weeks of round the clock music and dance.
Jerez is world famous for its sherry production and a visit to one of the town’s aristocratic sherry bodegas or cellars is essential. Tours operate during the week taking visitors to famous cellars that include Gonzalez Byass and Sandeman and the wine harvest in September will have a particular appeal for the wine connoisseurs.
Jerez is an ancient walled city and its narrow, winding cobbled streets and small squares were built before the 13th century. Its 11th century Moorish fortress has been restored and it has an abundance of unique churches and a cathedral to visit. It is a pleasure to wander along the wide, tree-lined streets stopping occasionally for tapas using local produce in the specialities.
There are several festivals and special events on the Jerez calendar. The Flamenco Festival is spread over two weeks in February and March and attracts visitors from all over the world. At Easter the city stops to enjoy Holy Week and is followed by the Formula 1 Motorcycle Grand Prix to which thousands of enthusiasts are attracted.
The Feria de Caballo is held in May and the two weeks of twenty-four hour music and dancing celebrates the relationship between wine, music and horses. There are various festivals throughout the summer in Jerez and its surrounding towns and villages and in September there is the Wine Harvest Festival. To conclude the calendar is the Christmas celebrations with the traditional Three Kings parades on the 6th January.
Other places to see include the Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Art with its regular shows that demonstrate the unique relationship between man and horse, the Clock Museum housing three hundred clocks from all over the word, one of the largest zoos in Spain and the natural parks and nature reserves. Visitors will truly all find something of interest and will be keen to return to immerse themselves further in Jerez’s rich culture and explore its architectural heritage.

Lovely flat in a lovely town - nicely and thoughtfully decorated and very central. Mohammed and Carmen were welcoming and very helpful. Jean was very approachable and helpful with responding to our questions.
Location is great for beaches, local towns and Seville and of course for local sherry tours and restaurants.
A guide to the amenities in the apartment i.e. workings of the air conditioning, hob, recycling and waste disposal etc.
