Destination guide

His ‘n' hers in Jerez—take a look at lovely Andalusia

Dust off your dancing shoes, polish your riding boots, and say "¡Hola!" to Jerez. The birthplace of flamenco music, and a historic hub for horseback riding, Jerez is also known for its ornate ancient buildings, world-renowned winemaking, and vibrant local culture. Just a few miles from the Atlantic Coast in the Andalusia region of southern Spain, you can find plenty of outdoor recreation near your Jerez vacation rental. The city's packed with art museums, centuries-old palaces, and sprawling public squares, and it also hosts a wealth of festivals throughout the year.

Things to do

Sherry, baby—tipples and tastings at Jerez's wineries

One corner of the noted Sherry Triangle—a winemaking region known for its production of the fortified wine—Jerez boasts a number of wineries and bodegas. Oenophiles would do well to head to the renowned Lustau winery, where you can enjoy tastings and tours of the historic bodega. At the Museo Arqueologico Municipal de Jerez de la Frontera, you'll get a front-row look at local history through artifacts and archaeological finds in an 18th-century building. And travelers of all ages can enjoy the wildlife and scenic walking paths of the Zoobotanico Jerez, a longstanding zoo with botanical gardens.

Activities

Jerez's activities are a horse of a different color

The biggest city in the province of Cadiz, Jerez has plenty to see and do. Horseback riding is a big deal in the region, and the distinctive Carthusian horse has been bred in Jerez since the 15th century. In the nearby Los Alcornocales Natural Park, you'll find more than 400,000 acres of hiking trails, campsites, and sprawling cork forests within the park's scenic wilderness. And no visit to Jerez would be complete without checking out some flamenco, a unique style of song and dance that originated in the area.

Weather

Over on the dry side—seasonal changes in Jerez

Like much of the region, Jerez has a climate that's somewhere between subtropical and Mediterranean, with dry, sunny summers and mild winters with plenty of rainfall. Summers are hot, with average highs of 93 degrees in August. Winters tend to be on the mild side, with regular rainfall and average temperatures between the low 40s and the low 60s from December through February. While summer is Jerez's busiest season, Andalusia's relatively warm year-round climate means the region is popular with visitors all the time. You'll find that prices for Jerez vacation rentals stay about the same from season to season.

Natural features

Inland empire—mountains, sea, and more near Jerez

Although it's technically landlocked, Jerez is only about 8 miles from the Atlantic Ocean's sandy shoreline, so you won't have any trouble making a big splash on your Andalusian vacation. To the southeast lies Los Alcornocales Natural Park, a sprawling nature preserve where you'll find nearly 650 square miles of wooded mountain slopes, cork forests, and winding cave systems. The park offers hiking, camping, and fishing, and it's home to local species like eagles, storks, otters, and wildcats. With a Jerez vacation rental, you'll be surrounded by iconic Andalusian scenery.
