Visiting Jerez

I am always on the look out for unique hotels, bed and breakfasts and home stays. In my mind a tiny place tucked away full of history and charm can truly enhance a vacation.

The beautiful Hotel La Fonda Barranco  dates back to 1865 and is in residential  building in the heart of old town Jerez. Hard to believe given its modern and luxurious feel. The renovation I believe was an arduous task. However, the result is a charming hotel and a true reflection of its Andalusian legacy. The property has only eight rooms that open into a central courtyard. A perfect haven to enjoy the various attraction the area of Cadiz has to offer.

Jerez de la Frontera is a municiplality in the province of Cádiz in Andalusia which is in southwestern Spain.

What a lovely terrace......




Love that door!



A pretty bedroom.



Lovely accents...




The central courtyard where you can relax after a long day of sightseeing.





Hope you have enjoyed your visit to Jerez!

AAAAH!
music to my soul!
I had the privelege of LIVING in Spain for three years.. The first of which was in Puerto de Santa Maria on the economy while awaiting base housing at Naval Station Rota.. what cherished memories of exploring the small towns (Pueblo Blancos) perched atop the hills of wine (Sherry) country! there was so much tradition to explore..to learn to love..
simply indescribable are the memories ..
as the ache in my heart for such a beautiful country which gave so much to me..
I cried all the way back to the states..not wanting to leave..but knowing I must..
thanks for sharing the beauty of Andalusia!
warmest hugs..
