About Jim & Alice
We've been living in the hinterland of the Costa del Sol for the past 12 years and wanted a 'pied á terre' in this lovely city. A great way to relax away from the demands of a 'country estate'.
Jim & Alice purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Jim & Alice chose Jerez
We bought the space, a former ballroom, then a costume workshop, part of the small design school still located in the building. The space and light sold us the place on the spot, we saw the possibilities to turn it to our dream apartment.
What makes this Apartment unique
Space, light, peace, comfort and masses of sunshine, surrounded by great restaurants, plazas, shops and churches and other fantastic historical buildings, Palaces and much more...... all within all 5-10 mins. walk in the pedestrian part of the old city. A past visitor's review with 2 teenage daughters: "What a fabulous surprise Jerez has been. We really didn't know what to expect and have enjoyed it hugely. The wonderful cobbled streets a joy to walk around, great visits to the Hammam, Alcazar and the Cathedral. Lovely bar on the doorstep, great food, especially "Albores" & "las Cuadras". Within a max. 10 mins. walk there are also many bodegas, clubs, music bars and Tabernas with plenty of flamenco. If you feel like exploring further by car our favored beaches are less than 30 mins. away. You'll be able to explore the quintessential Andalucia, with hill-top fortified towns, villages, and beach-resorts.

Great space, great location, perfect place to spend a week in Jerez
Dear Alice and Jim. My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful week staying at your apartment in Jerez. It truly is a fantastic space with everything we needed as a base for our time in the city. The apartment felt more like home each time we returned back from our sightseeing. It’s clear that your flair for the arts and design has played a big part in the architecture of the apartment and we particularly liked the fact that Jim’s art was a feature of the decor - a very talented man indeed. Spotlessly clean, very secure, very private and quiet, and also perfectly located - less than a 20 minute walk to pretty much everything there is to see in Jerez. Your recommendations were also appreciated and enjoyed - we took the train to Puerta Santa Maria and then boat to Cádiz (indeed a great way to enter the city), we ate at Arbores (fabulous food) and also at the Fundador restaurant (also fabulous) and equally enjoyed buying fresh fish and vegetables from the market to cook in the apartment. We’ll see you again I’m sure!
Oh thank you both.
We equally enjoyed having you as guests.
Being artists it is a great way of sharing the apartment, aswell as the cost, of our extravegance in the city.
An "escape" to our country life here in the "Serrania de Ronda" or your working lives abroad.
It is the perfect place to relax, unwind and just enjoy the delights of Jerez.
We will arrive in Cadiz by boat one day, we do recommend it to our visitors but have never actually done it ourselves......
Great place to enjoy Jerez in style
The apartment is at the very heart of Jerez de la Frontera. It is a great stay - important for us was that the kitchen was really fully functional with all the gadgets you would want to have. Aircondition was necessary with outside temperatures of around 40 degrees and it is worked well. the parking comes handy as well. We simply fell in love with laid-back Jerez -a city to enjoy and a great place to start exploring the whole of Andalucia. The apartment is spacious and the view from the elevated bedroom is breathtaking. We also enjoyed the very stylish interior design and the artsy atmosphere there. Great experience.
Loved our visit in Jerez !!
Wonderful apartment with everything you could possibly need for an amazing time in Jerez. Decorated to perfection, very comfortable bed, great shower, nice kitchen it was like being home. Fantastic location we were able to walk to restaurants, bars , sherry tastings , grocery store, all the stores .
Loved having the parking garage around the corner for day trips to Cadiz, Arcos, and Ronda. Thank you to Alice and Jim for making our trip so special!!
Lovely apartment in central Jerez
Beautiful and well equipped (and spotlessly clean) apartment. Minutes away from bars and good restaurants but also quiet and secluded. Really could not fault it in any way. A perfect location for exploring this delightful city. Would definitely book again.
We're so happy to share the apartment with visitors also appreciating the good things in life. Jerez is such a happy place to relax, a quintessentially Spanish town.
Très bien !
Appartement très agréable, très bien situé, calme. Design et typique à la fois. Je le recommande !
Apartamento muy agradable, muy bien situado, tranquilo. Design y tipico a la vez, os lo recomiendo !
Spacious apartment with a perfect location
My girlfriend and I spent one whole week at this apartment and hat a very relaxing time.
- The apartment is very spacious.
- It is perfectly located; you can explore the old town-centre by foot. Several points of interest, like sherry-bodegas, and countless cafes and restaurants lie within a 10 min walking distance.
- The parking garage is just across the street. It is a bit narrow but sufficient for a small car.
- The kitchen is roomy as well and more importantly, it is fully equipped. There is everything from pots and pans to dishes to salt, sugar, spices, tea, coffee and even a moka-pot.
- There is only a limited supply of hot water. We had to hurry during showering (in sequence) in order not to run out of hot water. There is also not enough of it to fill the large and luxurious bathtub.
- You might have trouble sleeping past the early morning if you are used to sleeping in total darkness, for the curtains in the bedroom are rather thin.
All in all, this apartment is a great place to stay at with minor issues diminishing the overall comfort.
Thanks for the positive feedback.
The car-parking space is the norm here in Spain, our past visitors with SUV’s have not reported problems. We have now installed a larger hot-water tank, offering plenty of hot water for a full bath even in winter! A black-out blind is now installed too, a point that has never been an issue so far, but we did appreciate your concern and acted upon it.
Jerez is a quintessential, traditional Spanish town, steeped in history and almost undiscovered by the hoards that visit its better known neighbours such as Sevilla and Cádiz. World famous for its wine industry, this ancient walled city has prospered thanks to the sherry that has been produces here for centuries. The town’s many sherry bodegas still offer wine tastings, tours and entertainment. Jerez provides some stunning architecture with its wide array of historical churches and magnificent palaces, many of which have been beautifully restored. Jerez is also known as the ‘cradle of flamenco’ because many of the most famous flamenco performers were born here. The areas of Santiago and San Miguel, each within a few minutes walk of the apartment, are the origin of some of the greatest figures in the world of flamenco, and where the purest flamenco can be found. Jerez offers more than a dozen “Peñas Flamencas” (flamenco clubs) for live music, and the “Centro Andaluz de Flamenco” is on the same street as the apartment. The Jerez festive calendar starts the flamenco festival: one of the most important in the world, with two weeks of phenomenal music and dance from internationally renowned performers. A number of squares, each with its own distinct character, are dotted around the old town. Most are pedestrianised and offer small bars and al fresco dining. The market is a hive of activity every morning with a wide variety of foods fresh from the surrounding farms and the nearby Atlantic “Feria del Caballo” is the famous annual Horse Fair at the beginning of May when visitors from all over the world flock to this prestigious yearly event. The fair has various shows and competitions with prizes that take place in key picturesque locations throughout the town. The Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art is famous for its dancing horse shows, typical of Jerez, where the Andalusian thoroughbreds are trained to perform high precision ballet “dances” to music. Semana Santa, the holy week is a full week of festivities, with procession all day and night, the passing of icons of the Nazarenes and the sacred songs sung passionately in the flamenco style. Jerez is also home to the Formula 1 motorcycle grand prix held in May in which the whole city is over-run by motorcycle enthusiasts. In September there is the Vendimia (Wine Harvest Festival), in which wine has the leading role. At the same time is the Fiesta de Buleria, a festival of Jerez de la Frontera music and dance. The Atlantic coast beaches are 15 mins. drive away, with fine white sands clean waters. Amongst the beaches within easy reach are El Puerto de Santa Maria, Sancti Petri, Chipiona, Conil, Zahara de los Atunes and many more smaller ones. Tarifa, famous for it’s wind surfing, is one hours drive. In addition, in each direction from the outskirts of Jerez, there are small villages and towns, typical of the traditional image of Spain including the famed white towns and villages (pueblos blancos), sheltering from the hot sun amid a landscape of rugged mountains. Some of the best include Vejer, Medina Sedonia, Arcos, Grazalema and Zahara de la Sierra There are plenty of opportunities for golfers in the area including the beautiful Jack Nicklaus designed course at Montecastillo, the Jerez Club de Golf, the 18 hole championship course of Sherry Golf Jerez, the Costa Ballena golf club stunningly situated on the Atlantic coast nearby, and the Magnificent Montemedio golf a short drive away near Vejer de la Frontera. Gibraltar and Seville are equidistant at just over one hour's drive. I am told that there is a excellent new service to Gibraltar from Bristol. For overseas visitors flying into Madrid, there is the option of a connecting flight, or the train. Alternatively you may want to rent a car. We have further info on all possible ways of getting here, best car rental, train schedules, pick-up service and/or more.
