Las Limas is a designated casa rural near the village of Jimena de la Frontera in Western Andalucia. The villa is located within the boundaries of Los Alcornocales Natural Park which, at 170,000 hectares, is one of the biggest protected areas in Spain and the largest area of Cork Oak (Quercus suber) forest in Europe. Los Alcornocales has a wealth of wildlife and the area is famous for the spring and autumn migrations of soaring birds over the straits of Gibraltar.

Las Limas is an ideal base for exploring the Natural Park and further afield to the cliff top town of Ronda, the famous wetlands of Donana and the sherry bodegas of Jerez. The Barbary macaques of Gibraltar and whale-watching in the Atlantic from Tarifa are also in easy striking distance while the nearby white village of Jimena provides restaurants and bars and unspoilt Andalucian ambiance.

Whether you want to idle beside the pool, enjoy some of the best wildlife Western Europe can offer, learn about Spain's incredible history, experience Andalucia's vibrant culture or all of the above then Las Limas is the place to do it from.
