Arrival in Jerez


Accommodation: A converted mansion

2 Nights, Bed & Breakfast
The 1920's mansion sits on a palm-lined square in the old town of Jerez. There are countless bars, restaurants, shops and attractions in the immediate vicinity. The property is a listed landmark due to the building's outstanding architectural style and the famous architect who created it. Consequently, its conversion to boutique hotel was carried out with particular care. The heart of the house is still the Andalusian courtyard, where breakfast is served. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place to read or just relax and take a break from the rigours of sightseeing.


Details: Jerez
Most of the tourists who come to Jerez are interested in sampling the famous wine known as vino de Jerez, or sherry, which can be tasted and purchased in the numerous "bodegas" (wine cellars and shops). The city just north of Cádiz is also known for horse-breeding and flamenco dancing. These combined attributes are celebrated in a three-week autumn festival that takes place just after the grape harvest. Travellers merely looking for a pleasant place in Andalusia to take a stroll and enjoy a good meal will hit the mark here.

The building is located on a baroque square among palm treesopposite a tower of the city wall, and some of its foundations date back to the10th Century.

Details: Costa de la Luz
Spain's Atlantic coastline from the Portuguese border to Gibraltar is known as the Costa de la Luz. Although the region is almost always bathed in light (hence the name "Coast of Light") it is almost never as hot there as in the interior because of the constant sea breeze. Endless golden beaches are broken by small bays and steep cliffs. Despite its pleasant climate and attractive landscape, the region is not as popular among tourists as the adjoining Costa De la Sol to the east.

White villages
Distance: 170 km Travel time: 3:00 h

The route passes by a number of typical Andalusian villages with their white-washed houses, narrow streets and blossoming courtyards. One of the most scenic white towns in Andalusia happens to lie along the route: Arcos de la Frontera.

Accommodation: A former olive mill

2 Nights, Bed & Breakfast
The 18th century mill stands on a hill outside of Ronda among olive trees. The views of Ronda and the Sierra landscape are unbeatable. Every room in the small luxury hotel has a private garden or patio, and many have a cosy fireplace.

The restaurant serves Mediterranean cuisine from a daily menu featuring feshly prepared dishes. Umfulana will reserve a table upon request. Ronda is just a 10-minute drive away, although guests may be happy to relax in the swimming pool and otherwise keep doing nothingin accordance with the house motto.

Details: Ronda
The first thing that strikes visitors to Ronda is its precarious position on the edge of a steep canyon. Such notables as Rilke, Hemmingway and Orson Welles were captivated by the city's amazing location. In "For Whom the Bell Tolls" Hemmingway writes about rebels being thrown from the cliff by Republicans during the Spanish Civil War. The plunging canyon that splits the city in two is called El Tajo and is spanned by three stunning bridges. A stroll along the panoramic promenade on the edge of the canyon is a must. One of Spain's oldest cities, Ronda was under Moorish rule for over 700 years, a period that is reflected in the local architecture. The city is also known as the birthplace of the modern method of bullfighting featuring a torero who is on foot instead of on horseback and who fears shame more than death or injury. The Plaza de Toros is the oldest bullfighting ring in Spain still in (infrequent) use.

White villages
Distance: 120 km     Travel time: 2:00 h

A worthwhile detour is to Arcos de la Frontera, considered the most beautiful of the typical white villages of south-west Andalusia.

Accommodation: A villa in ancient Sevilla

2 Nights, Bed & Breakfast
The hotel near the cathedral in the vibrant Old Town represents an oasis of tranquility where guests can relax on the rooftop terrace with a pool and lounge chairs, or on one of the cool patios or in the spacious bedrooms. The service is excellent, as is the breakfast with a choice of buffet or à la carte orders. The interior is marked by fascinating contrasts: vivid colors, floral scents and a fountain in the courtyard reflect the urban surroundings, while natural materials like stone, clay and slate lend the estate a country touch. Bath robes and natural cosmetics are provided in the bathrooms.


Details: Seville
The capital of Andalusia is one of the hottest cities in Europe. It is therefore not surprising that much of the city life takes place at night. Don Juan's hometown is an especially exciting place during the Semana Santa (Easter Holy Week) and Seville Fair festivals, which involve week-long, lively celebrations. Although Seville has less Moorish architecture than either Cordoba or Granada, the townscape is considered particularly "Andalusian." Many major and minor sights can be seen along the route from the Real Alcázar, the Royal Palace, to the Barrio de Santa Cruz, a picturesque district with an abundance of small squares and courtyards decorated with flowers.

Outside its historical centre Seville has many modern suburbs created by the recent economic boom: new neighbourhoods have sprung up practically overnight, resulting in a traffic gridlock that is not limited to the rush hours.
