A group of friends and I stayed in Jimena de la Frontera for a week in October, and enjoyed the experience so much that we came back for New Year! Both times we stayed in Casa Henrietta.
The lovely thing about Casa Henrietta is that it is spacious and luxurious, yet it still felt like staying in a friends house. All our rooms were large and impressive, in fact I've lived in appartments smaller than the room I had at New Years! The rooms that I saw either had balconies or small terraces which look out over the mountains (I slept with the shutters open so I could see the mountains when I awoke). The beds are comfortable and bathrooms are clean and modern with a powerful shower . All good.
Once you get to Jimena a car is not really needed, there's a great selection of quirky bars and places to eat very close by, plenty of walks, and interesting ruins of an old fort at the top of the hill overlooking the village.
Casa Henrietta don't do dinner, (we loved the Anon, which is on the next street over) but there's continental breakfast served in the morning and a bar for nightcaps, which we sometimes had out on the terrace. The owner, Melissa, (who thankfully speaks fluent English) was on hand to answer any queries we had, and to give us suggestions on where to eat and hang out.
When we left to continue our travels, Melissa organised a taxi for us to take us to the local train station, from which we visited Ronda and Granada. ....Jimena, we'll be back!
