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. Parking is available on the street, but it has recently become metered from 9am-2pm and from 5-8pm, free after that, the rest of Saturday after 2 pm, and all day on Sundays. It is usually not a problem to find parking near the house.
I live in a separate apartment downstairs and work from home, with occasional absences for work, but 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! I lovely cat named Mutabal lives in the house.
The neighborhood is tranquil and very typically Andalucian, so imparts a real local feel. It's your home away from home in Jerez!
The communal patio downstairs, and a short flight of stairs, however it is this last point that I think makes the apartment less than ideal for small children, unless they are very carefully supervised.
Interaction with guests
I make sure to meet and greet all our guests, unless I am away for work in which a trusted friend assists, and am usually available (our apartment is downstairs) for questions, a chat, or a glass of sherry.
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 cat into the upstairs apartment, as well as when you are entering and leaving the house that the cat does not go outside.
Lastly, I ask you to please help conserve energy, and turn off the lights when you go out!
I an sometimes away from the house for work but have a trusted friend who lives in the downstairs who can let you in and give you keys. It is very important that we have a fairly precise arrival time to make sure someone is at the house.
If you are trying to book with less than 48 hours notice, i may be unable to accept your booking!!

US born and bred, long time expat living in Spain and Morocco, with a permanent itch to travel and meet new people. Plays a flamenco guitar from time to time and will talk with anyone who listens about Spain, Morocco, and the wonderful world of sherry.
As a traveler myself I value local experiences and getting to know places from meaningful, local and unique perspectives- My approach as a host is similar: I hope everyone who comes through here appreciates the culture and natural beauty of the area as much as I do. I'm always happy to make suggestions of what to see and where to go based off my guest's interests.
