Review Icon"What a fabulous surprise Jerez has been. We really didn't know what to expect and we have enjoyed it hugely. The wonderful cobbled streets, a joy to walk around, great visits to the Hammam, Alcázar Cathedral. Lovely bar on the doorstep, great food, especially Albores but Las Cuadras great too. Cádiz on the train was great day our tan your're right that the beach is good and fun. And the apartment is wonderful, so well located, so well equipped and beautifully furnished. It has been a pleasure to be here. Thank you"

Review Icon"Thank you. We had a wonderful week. It wasn't long enough! We loved the riding school, the restaurants, the bodegas, the market and, of course, the Easter processions. Your apartment is beautiful."

Review Icon"We have enjoyed very much your very well designed and appointed apartment -everything we needed was easily to hand and easily to work given the very clear instructions! Jerez is lovely and everything is so close and easy to walk to. Amongst many favourite haunts we would mention: Bar La Moderna, very buzzy, local. La Carbona, proper restaurant. Albores, very friendly, great food. Basically you can't get a bad meal anywhere and a few words of basic Spanish sets you up nicely. We would also suggest a 30 mns drive to Sanlucar de Barrameda -great restaurant called Casa Bigote, try the informal stand up bar for a really local experience. We would certainly come back again and hope to see you on another trip."

Villa Description

A slice of historical Jerez

This beautiful contemporary apartment set in a classical 18th century town palace is your perfect base to explore the city, and the region.

Grand wooden doors, open onto a delightful courtyard, complete with colonnades, checkered marble floor and potted plants. This space is shared with a small design school on the ground floor, which formerly housed the family stables and bodega. A marble stairway takes you up two flights to the apartment.

Upon entering one is struck by the high ceiling and ample windows, generously illuminating the open plan living and dining area. Here is a thoroughly modern living space. The owners converted this flat in 2005 from a former ballroom and have worked their artistic magic on it to create a stylish yet relaxing pied à terre in which everything has been designed to maximize space and light. The second bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, living area and dining space are all on one floor while the master bedroom and en suite occupy a mezzanine above the cosy dining area and are ascended by floating stairs. Attention to detail was central to the apartment’s cutting edge design, marrying subtle sculptural touches with an emphasis on providing all you’d want in a holiday apartment.

Experience an unforgettable city break

"We look forward to staying here again"

The first thing you notice about the apartment is the airy spaciousness of it all. The high ceiling with it’s dark, barrel vaulted beams, coupled with the white walls and original artwork, makes it wonderfully bright and relaxing.

The second bedroom is off the living area. Its doors are misted glass from top to bottom for privacy yet maximum light. Above the bedhead is an arched skylight which can easily be shaded with a blackout blind for a good night's sleep. The bedhead has a stylish book shelf behind the pillow area and is lit on either side of the bed, both on the wall and with reading lamps as well. For those who need to work during their travels, the wardrobe is cleverly designed to convert into a mini office with printer and pull out desk shelf. Although there is central heating and air conditioning throughout the flat, there are also portable fans in each bedroom.

The stairs take you up to the master bedroom with it’s en suite bathroom. The full length window has wonderful views towards Jerez Cathedral which, when lit up at night, is absolutely stunning. The room is cheerful and crisp with a king-size bed, beautiful polished walnut floor (comfortable for bare feet) and a full length mirror essential for when you're getting ready to hit the town! The bed is versatile too as it can also be made up as two singles. Furnishing is completed with a stylish desk and chair, lacquered bedside tables and a built-in wardrobe. The en suite bathroom, like the rest of the apartment, has stylish, modern fittings with a walk-in hydro shower. The large mirror is halogen-lit for perfect makeup/shaving and the storage drawer underneath the sink is great for the hairdryer and toiletries, so no excuse for clutter and mess.

A contemporary living space

Although wrapped in an antique shell, the interior is thoroughly modern.

The German-designed kitchen is tasteful and sleek. All the appliances are of excellent quality: Whirlpool hob, microwave and electric oven. The fridge-freezer and dishwasher are disguised behind flat-fronted doors for a streamlined look. It's a nuisance when you turn up to a self-catering apartment and there's no salt and pepper. But not here. Dry goods eg seasonings, oil, vinegar are available for guests to use.

Another thoughtful touch from the owners is the utility cupboard by the front door. Not only does it house the iron and board, but umbrellas, a shopping trolley  and bathroom scales to weigh luggage (or yourself if you really must!)

The dining area has an extendable table which can seat eight without any problem. A divan-style sofa with a coffee table is ideal to relax on and read or email if the other members of the party want to watch tv in the living area. Wifi with 12 MB internet allows for a fast connection wherever you are in the flat.

Feel the vibrancy of this Andalucian city

"The Easter procession was the most impressive event I have ever witnessed"

The main bathroom with its ochre stuccoed walls is fitted with taps, bathtub with shower, surface-top sink and toilet all designed by Philippe Starck. A heated towel rail provides warmth. A frosted glass panel catches the evening light, relax in the bath with a glass of wine and your own private sunset ...

The living area has a two- and a three- seater sofa, pouffe and coffee table. The apartment is south west facing, so the afternoon sun floods into the big, double glazed windows. If too much sunshine is a problem, it can be shut out with the Venetian blinds. For entertainment there is a flat-screen TV, and DVD player. Bluetooth installation means you can use your iPhone/iPad to connect to the Bose speakers to play your own music and use your laptop to screen your own films.

The arches in the walls are an interesting feature and are the remains of the ballroom from many years ago. In its different guises, this space has seen the fun times of people through the centuries and it continues to do so today.

The apartment is in the very heart of the old city within view of the cathedral. Step outside and you have cafes, little plazas and gothic churches literally on your doorstep.

Although in a quiet side street, just walk past rich, stone-faced Spanish buildings, through cobbled streets lined with orange trees and within five minutes' you have the buzzing city at your feet. The historical sights, the shops, concerts and the tapas bars (tabancos) of Jerez make a stay in this city something very unique and typically Andalucían.

The Easter celebrations have to be seen to be believed and the passion of flamenco can be witnessed every August night in the Alcazar, only a short walk from the flat.

Jerez is dominated by the traditions of horsesmanship and sherry-making from which the city made its wealth. Jerez is one point of the 'sherry triangle' with Sanlucar de Barrameda to the north west and El Puerto de Santa Maria in the south. The centre of the old town is surrounded by wineries bodegas. You can learn about the sherry-making process during a trip to one of these bodegas, and of course sample their wares. The famous Spanish riding school is close by the apartment.

Out of town, Jerez is surrounded by a countryside of flat plains and farmlands with fields of wheat, maize and sunflowers. The ancient port city of Cadiz is half an hour away. The beaches of Cadiz are superb: La Playa de la Caleta, Playa La Jara in San Lúcar de Barrameda and the Playa Valdelagrana which has 8km of nature reserve and white sand, its gently sloping beach is ideal for children. The closest beach is Puerto Santa Maria, only 20 minutes away.

This apartment can be offered in conjunction with its sister property ZC16 which is located in the beautiful countryside near Gaucín. Why not have a twin-based holiday: a relaxing week lounging by the pool followed by an Andalucían city break? A great way to experience the two sides of Spain!

Around and About

This is an excellent base from which to explore this delightful and very beautiful part of Andalucía.

Excursions

  • Puerto Santa Maria and Sanlúcar de Barrameda, being the other two towns of the "sherry triangle" in Spain's unique sherry wine region, are well worth a visit, enhanced no doubt by stopping at one or two of the famous bodegas along the way!
  • Cádiz (35 mins.) continues to evoke the romance, intrigue and mystery of centuries of trade (some legal, some not so) between Europe, Africa and the Americas. An absolute must is the “Torre Poniente” and the “camera Obscura”.
  • Sevilla (an hour away). It is impossible not to be captivated by its exuberant atmosphere: stylish, confident, ancient and proud, yet also convivial, intimate and fun-loving. If you don't know what alegría means, Sevilla is the place to learn!
  • There are so many new cultural attractions both in Cadiz and Sevilla that a trip to either is highly recommended. Maps, directions and parking information can be provided to make your visit a pleasure and stress free.
  • Jerrez is also a great base to visit beaches, towns, the white villages, that is if you fancy driving around.
  • From here you are superbly placed to head for the wonderful Atlantic coast on the Costa de la Luz, just an hour away with beaches to choose from in every direction. The beaches are simply fantastic; a mix of long, sandy stretches and secluded, rocky coves - and there's mile upon mile upon mile of them, down the coast to Tarifa and north as far as the Portuguese border.
  • Hemingway's favorite town in all Spain, Ronda, its extraordinary gorge dividing the old and new quarters, is just over an hour away. With its mansion houses, quaint narrow streets, museums and art galleries and Spain's oldest bullring, it is well worth visiting. It Is spectacular drive. Jagged peaks, gorges, chasms, faults and caves, underground rivers and deep canyons are interspersed, here and there, by some of the prettiest villages in Spain - the famous "pueblos blancos".
  • Córdoba and Granada are further afield, 2¾ hours and 3¼ hours drive from here, but again offer a whole new range of culture and style.

Activities

  • Jerez has many bodegas all within easy walking distance, one even housing a stunning museum for their own collection dating back as early as the mid 18th Century.
  • The archeological museum is now open and is a gem, not for their displays but just the care taken to build the museum....
  • You can see the famous horse shows, but booking is recommended which is something that some owners will organise for you if you wish.
  • There is the flamenco museum just down the road, “small but well formed” they show ancient films of the stars of flamenco.
  • The many churches and their wealth of ornaments is always a delight.
  • Shopping is wonderful in Jerez, the likes of Mango and Zara are housed in palaces, and with little independant shops dotted around too you can get your new season's wardrobe at leisure.
  • You may want to come and take part in the Formula One testing week usually held in February.
  • The Hamman is worth a visit too. All these special places are within the city walls.
  • There are two 18 hole golf courses at the entrance of Jerez.
  • The are several bull breeding farms that offer day trippers a chance to see their work and have a bite at their Hacienda.
