Casita Alegria in Jimena de la Frontera - perfect for couples

Space 699 sq. ft.
Property type apartment
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Welcome to Casita Alegria situated in the old part of the beautiful white village of Jimena de la Frontera. Our comfortable holiday home is on a quiet street near the Moorish castle and is within easy walking distance of all amenities. There is no problem parking outside the house, or close nearby. The accommodation occupies the top floor of a traditional Spanish town house and, apart from the flight of stairs leading up to the Casita, is all on one level with a convenient layout. There is a well equipped kitchen, a stylish bathroom complete with bidet and shower over the bath, comfortable double bedroom with fitted wardrobe and reverse air con/heating unit, open plan living/dining room with open log fire and reverse air con/heating unit. Double French doors from the living area lead onto a spacious terrace with stunning views over the countryside. The terrace has a table and four chairs for al fresco dining and two sun loungers. Casita Alegria is tastefully decorated and furnished and has a beautiful traditional high beamed ceiling.

Jimena de la Frontera is surrounded by the Alcornocales national park (well known for its cork oaks and mushrooms!) and the countryside is beautiful and varied with numerous walks (many from the village itself). It is also an ideal area for bird watchers. The village and its surrounding countryside is a joy for nature lovers and those looking for calm and relaxation. The rural destination is ideal for those looking for an escape away from main tourist areas of the coast and who want to be able to explore the great outdoors. Jimena de la Frontera is located just 35 kilometres from the coast, where you can visit San Roque and Sotogrande, Gibraltar and Tarifa. It really is the perfect base for a holiday as there is something for everyone including lovely beaches, several championship golf courses, polo, interesting towns and villages to explore. The town is also on the rail route to Ronda so you can enjoy the stunning countryside without taking your car.

The village itself has numerous shops and bars and several excellent restaurants serving fresh local produce. There is a municipal swimming pool which is open during the summer months and a health centre. You will find the locals very friendly and they appreciate it if you make an effort to speak Spanish, even if it is just “hola”, “gracias” and “adios”. Jimena has a Spring fair, a three day music festival in July, a summer feria in August and a mushroom festival in the autumn

Why Owner/Manager chose Jimena de la Frontera

The first things which struck us about the Casita are the amazing views and the beautiful high beamed ceiling, which is traditional in the area
