About Duncan MacInnesI
Hi, We’re Duncan and Jasmin and we fell in love with Spain and this wonderful property 16 years ago which we lovingly restored over the years and is our principal home. It has all comforts to make your stay really memorable. You will enjoy the privacy and enchanting views and of course the wonderful climate, food and the charismatic people that Spain offers.
Duncan MacInnesI purchased this Cottage in 2000
Why Duncan MacInnesI chose Jimena de la Frontera
This was the first and only property that we viewed. From the second we drove through the gate we had found our paradise. There were goats in the ruined Farmhouse and the cottage only had stones where the walls once were. Daunting though it was we restored the property over 5 years keeping the Andalucian features but modernising the living space for our needs. So why this property for your holiday? You will be enchanted as we still are

We had a great time
The house and the landscape are beautiful. Ideal for hiking, enjoying nature and the large pool. You can get away from it all whilst there is also a very good WiFi connection if you want to re-connect. Duncan is a great host and was always available if we had any questions.
Christine and Marios were wonderful guests and I could not recommend them more highly. They left the property as clean as a whistle.
It was a pleasure meeting you.
The Mediterranean is 25 minutes away and Tariffa on the Atlantic coast has some of the best beaches in Spain and is an hours drive.
Malga Airport is 1,5 hours and Gibraltar 40 minutes and Jerez de la Frontera 1.5 hours
Jimena de la Frontera is a sleepy white Andalucian village only 5 minutes away by car or a 15 minute walk. It has a wide choice of restaurants and bars with two supermarkets and a health centre. Perched on top is a Moorish castle with spectacular views of the sierras and Morocco and Gibraltar.
There are spectacular walks . Just walk out the gate to the river. We have route guides for a 30 minute or an all day walk and you are sure to see amazing scenery and likely to see soaring eagles in the sierras.
You can do a day trip to Morocco from Tariffa on the fast ferry that takes 35 minutes
There is a train from the village that takes an hour and enjoy the view as the train negotiates the ravines as it climbs to Ronda that has Roman origins and has one of the oldest bullrings in Spain.
Gibraltar is a 40 minute drive enjoy duty free shopping or take the cable car to the top and see the Gibraltar apes or explore the caves.
The Historic cities of Seville (2hr), Jerez de la Frontera and Cadiz (1.5hrs), Granada (3hrs), Malaga (1.5hrs) Marbella and Puerto Banus (1hr) are all within striking distance for a day trip
