Our home

This is my winter home. It is a typical 'casa rustica' in the old part of Jimena, and is comfortably equipped and furnished. Cooking is by electricity and water heating by propane gas. There are two double bedrooms, one with washbasin, on the ground floor and one at the top, with en-suite bathroom. The main bathroom, with small tub, on the ground floor. There are too many steps to make this a good options for small kids or people with disabilities. I put in a new kitchen three years ago and love it.

The top terrace has loungers, great views and a washing line. The lower terrace opens from the living room and is a good place to eat al fresco. There are two fans for summer and electric wall heaters and a wood stove for cooler weather.

Who we are

  1. I am a retired teacher and divide my life between Jimena, a village I have been connected with for many years, and North Wales, where I have a sweet house on a hill, also available for exchanges. I'd like to spend some time exploring Devon in the summer, with a view to moving nearer to my daughter. I've always found Jimena to be an interesting and very friendly place to be, and enjoy the various local musical and cultural activities as well as the wonderful scenery.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

The house lies at the bottom of a typical cobble street, and is within a few minutes walk of a little local shop, five minutes from the public swimming pool (open in summer only) and 15 minutes from the river. The sea (Med)is about 35 minutes'drive. The main attractions of living here, for me, are the typical village life and the beautiful country. There are some lovely walks and the river is one of the cleanest in Spain. Visitors tend to come here to walk, birdwatch and explore the surrounding villages and the Alcornocales national park. There are several good restaurants (try El Anon)and many smaller bars for tapas. Two small supermarkets provide for all basic needs, and large ones are 40 minutes'drive away, as is Gibraltar One can take a train to Ronda for the day, or make a road tour of the famous White Villages of Andalucia.
