We stopped off here while touring Andalucia. We only intended to stay one night, but soon
decided to stay until the end of our holiday. The house has been done up beautifully, and is extremely comfortable. There was a roaring log fire in the drawing room, where we would relax
with a glass of Tio Pepe,(the house belongs to the Gonzales Gordon family).
The service from Jose, Diego and Andy was superb.They made us feel very welcome, and nothing was too much trouble. There were superb breakfasts, beautifully served, with delicious scrambled eggs, courtesy of Angela.
There is a fabulous walk through the vineyards and fields behind the house, with breathtaking views of the countryside. It also makes an excellent base for exploring Andalucia, with Seville,
Cadiz, Cordoba, Granada and, of course, Jerez all within an hour or two's drive.
This would also be a great place to come for a few days with family and friends. There are only 8 bedrooms, and they are all lovely. A very classy place to stay!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Concealed in a dense arboreal garden of palms, cypresses, myrtle, bay and lentiscs, lies a secret world, the world of Casa Alcantara, an exclusive accommodation only 10 minutes from Jerez airport, Cadiz, Andalucia. Here the family had their private shooting box; and on a bright crisp winter's day, they would retire from shooting partridge to indulge in the simple pleasure of a country fireside, glittering copas of cooled Tio Pepe, or amber oloroso, and a homely lunch of hot sopa de ajos, eggs from the farm hens, gently fried in olive oil, or perhaps some spinach or Swiss chard grown between the vineyards on the hills behind the house. ... more less
