As this was our first visit to this part of Spain we hadn't quite expected the breathtaking scenery of Jimena & the view from the rooms & terrace were just amazing. As we'd had an early flight & had worked up until the last minute before our holiday we were ready for a chill & quickly realised we'd chosen the... More

We have just stayed here for 4 nights with our 3 children age 5, 7 and 8. The breathtaking views are second to none and the rooms are charming and spotlessly clean with a lovely large double bed and plenty of space to put clothes. The breakfast was fab. Lovely fresh fruit and healthy breads and cereals. Although not designed... More

This B&B is a true gem of a find. Situated in a beautiful, hilly town, the drive to the house is very steep but once you arrive you don't really need your car again. Everything is walkable (steep hills are good exercise!) and Val and Pat drive you into town each night so you just have the walk home, which... More

We can only agree with all the excellent reviews from previous years and feel lucky to have found la Vina de Linan. Val and Pat couldn't be more welcoming, accommodating or helpful and it was a pleasure to be in their home. The setting was beautiful and tranquil - we borrowed binoculars and a walking guide and went on great... More

This brilliant bed and breakfast is in a truly glorious position on the outskirts of Jimena de la Frontera with a view to die for. It is impossible to use the same frames of reference here as when writing about a hotel because this is more like staying at a very well equipped friend's house. There are only a maximum... More

This is a very easy review to write - we agree with all the glowing reports that have gone before. I would just add that there is great walking from the door - we barely used the car during the week we stayed here. If you want real rural Spain with hosts who care, great views, wonderful walking, comfort and... More

What a wonderful place. We stayed for 5 nights and were exceptionally well looked after by friends of Pat and Val; just loved Karen and Mark - so warm and welcoming. The B&B was gorgeous and so peaceful. We stayed in two rooms, both immaculate; I have very high standards, and I was not dissappointed. Breakfasts were lovely on the... More

We arrived in this idyllic location after a long drive, to be met by two wonderful hosts. The B&B is a rural finca with views to die for, and yet only 5 minutes walk from a wonderful little village. This is real Spain! Sounds of local wildlife and warm winds meet you as you wake up in a massive antique... More

We have just returned from 2 nights with Val and Pat in their beautiful house in Jimena de la Frontera. It is a beautiful retreat from the madness of the coast, set in a very traditional white Spanish village which clings to the hillside - be warned the streets are very narrow and steep, but this just adds to the...

We would give this place a six if it was possible, we had a wonderful stay here. One day of relaxing by the pool and one day of hiking. Val really took care of us and made a great breakfast. We were also rekomended to eat at a restaurant in town. It was delicious! We had the smallest room and... More
