Jimena de la Frontera, Province of Cadiz, Andalucia
La casa del piano is an 18th century former convent entirely refurbished, in keeping with the rustic character and traditional charm of the original building. Today it's a large family home with two spacious lounges, study, three double bedrooms, two bathrooms, terrace with mountain views and a tropical Andalusian courtyard with exotic plants, and private splash pool.

Oak beams, twisty walls, hand glazed tiles, little nooks and crannies, a choice of terraces and Andalusian courtyard, beautifully weathered terracotta floors, a 1938 up-right piano - it has bags and bags of character; but there's also all mod cons too - satellite TV, a well appointed kitchen with extra large SMEG cooker, fenced-off splash pool (3m x 4m).

The house is well equipped for kiddies with football table and board games.

Jimena is on the well known ´bird s...

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 week stay at La Casa del Piano. The house was true to description and exceeded our expectations. It was clean and well prepared with basic supplies plus a generous welcome package. The house is stylish with art, antiques, books and attention to detail. The 3 terrace areas are pleasant sun traps with lush plants and flowers even in winter. The house is on the best street in town so is quiet, safe and central.
The owner was a pleasure to deal with and supplied us with driving directions and restaurant/activity suggestions. The property manager welcomed us on arrival and gave us a complete tour of the property. She was available and prompt in answering our questions during our stay.
I would definitely recommend the property and we hope to return ourselves. It is a big house for 2 people and would be ideal for a family or small group. Parking is tight in town so would suggest a small or no car.
We particularly enjoyed travelling on the Renfe trains to...

Jimena de la Frontera is a small town of about 9K people with much charm, open friendliness, interesting inexpensive cafes and small restaurants. It is the home to several british expats. It served as a base for us in traveling to Ronda, Rock of Gibraltar, Cadiz and many other places in Southern Andalucia. Most of all we loved the home with its character and charm. It has the mix of antiqua charm with modern day conveniences including a pool in the patio area. We could have lived comfortably there for several weeks (if not months) but only had a week. We had six in our party comfortably using all three bedrooms. We enjoyed the openness of the family areas in the home as well as enjoyed just sitting outside in any of the three patio areas (including two baloncies with one on top of the roof) enjoying a sip of wine after a long travel day. We tried different restaurants in town during our stay and liked them all (most of the time talking with the owners in broken english and spanish...

About the neighbourhood
Les après midis sont toujours très calmes, la sieste a ici un caractère sacre que peu oseraient troubler. En été, après le diner, les rues et la place du village s'animent. Les vieilles dames sortent leur chaise pour ne pas manquer la brise salvatrice, les petits enfants sont avec leurs abuelos, et pratiquent déjà leurs accords flamenco. Depuis les ruines du château maure, les cotes africaines sont souvent visibles... une invitation au voyage ! L'Afrique est à moins de deux heures, porte à porte ! Combien de fois, nous sommes nous laisses tenter.... pour un thé à la menthe, place de France, à Tanger. Jimena est notre village de coeur en Andalousie, notre village d'adoption aussi. Le plus souvent possible, nous rentrons au village en commençant toujours par une visite a notre ép... more
