About this listing
A cosy upstairs apartment in an Andalusian-style patio home, in the San Miguel neighborhood of Jerez, well located in the old town near flamenco peñas and sherry-wine cellars. A great base for exploring Jerez and the wonderful region of Cadiz!
Cosy and quaint 1 bedroom apartment on the top floor of a small Andalucian style patio house in the historic neighborhood of San Miguel, with excellent nearby sherry wine cellars and flamenco peñas. Free wifi.
Although I do say the apartment can accommodate three people, it would have to be with a couple in the main bedroom and one person on the sofa living room, so probably not ideal for three friends travelling together.
The place is very handy for people studying flamenco are wanting to use Jerez as a base for exploring the region, as there are good rail and bus connections nearby, in addition to Jerez airport with regular flights to Madrid, Palma, Barcelona, etc. From the house you are 5 minutes walk to the central Calle Larga with lots of shops and tapas bars. The nearest beaches are in El Puerto de Santa Maria, about a 15-20 minute drive away. Although I do not have assigned parking for the house, parking on our street is free and on a space-available basis. It is usually not a problem to find parking near the house.
We live in a separate apartment downstairs and work from home, with occasional absences for work, but we're usually on hand to provide information about what to see and do, where to eat and drink, and of course where to find the best Flamenco! We have a lovely cat (Mutabal) and a chirpy Pomeranian (Poncho).
The neighborhood is tranquil and very typically Andalucian, so imparts a real local feel. It's your home away from home in Jerez!

Interaction with Guests
As much or as little as you like. We try to be sure to meet and greet all our guests, and are usually available (our apartment is downstairs) for questions, a chat, or a glass of sherry.
Along with Barrio Santiago on the other side of town, San Miguel is legendary for its flamenco. Anyone wanting to get a deeper appreciation of this art form will find plenty in the neighborhood: peñas, dance studios, and guitar teachers. We can even organize flamenco guitar lessons here.
For most of what you'll need in Jerez, you're within walking distance. Otherwise, there are municipal buses with stops just a few minutes away, and good rail connections to Sevilla and Cadiz. If you're arriving in Jerez by plane, the best thing to do is to take a taxi, which should be around 17€ to the door. There are very infrequent buses and trains from the airport to the center of town, but they rarely coincide with flight arrivals, so the taxi is best. We're a 10 minute walk from the train / bus stations, a taxi to our door should be no more than 5€.
If you are a flamenco dancer, I ask that you do not practice your "zapateado" in the apartment as I am directly below you and more importantly, it bothers the neighbors.
There is strictly no smoking allowed in the apartment, sorry. You can smoke outside or downstairs in the patio.
Please be sure when coming and going to not let the pets into the upstairs apartment, as well as when you are entering and leaving the house that the pets do not go outside.
