Who we are

  1. I am Jane/Juana/Giovanna, depending on which country I am in at the time. I am a retired American who loves to play chamber music with friends (viola/violin) and meet new people in interesting places. I live part of the year in Spain, part of the year in Italy. Formerly from New York, I travel to the States (New York City and Dutchess County) about once a year to keep up with family and friends there. I describe myself as a "compulsive flyer" and am usually prepared to make an interesting trip on short notice if I have no other committments. However, because I also sometimes rent my homes when I am not there, I am prepared to make plans far in advance too. I have been doing home exchanges, off and on, for about 35 years and have never had a bad experience.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Jimena is one of the pueblos blancos of Andalucia, situated halfway between Algeciras and Ronda but less than a half hour from the nearest beach (or enjoy lovely in-town swimming pools), located on the edge of the Parque Natural de las Alcornocales. A typical small, rural town, it still maintains the authentic character of Spain which has been lost in nearby costal towns taken over by high-rise resorts. It is 1.5 hours to Malaga Airport, 45 minutes to Gibraltar Airport, 1 hour to Ronda, 2 hours to Cadiz, 2 hours to Jerez, 3 hours to Sevilla, 3.5 hours to both Granada and Cordoba. There is also a rail link from Algeciras to Granada, with the stretch from Jimena to Ronda particularly spectacular. The Atlantic beaches are only about 1 hour away at Tarifa, and the beaches of the Mediterranean are 25 minutes away.
