About the neighbourhood
Jimena de la Frontera is one of the 'White Villages' of the Ronda area. It is a very pretty village built on a free standing hill crowned by a Romano-Moorish castle. Every street is picturesque.

How to get there
Airport: Gibraltar: 35.0 km
Railway: Jimena: 2.0 km
Ferry: Algeciras: 40.0 km
The property can be reached by rail and bus which some people use but the services are infrequent and often involve changes. It is therefore best to hire a car especially if you want to explore rather than walk or bicycle.

I recommend a local car hire company. Autos Aguirre, Avda Espana 26, 11300, La Linea Cadiz, Spain
