Jerez de la Frontera is most famous for its sherry trade. Originally established in the 18th century when it traded largely with the UK, the vast income from this trade has made it one of the wealthiest cities in Andalucia. This wealth is quite apparent in the proportions of the City with its wide tree lined boulevards, open park areas and plazas which give an air of elegance and sophistication.
Many of the original sherry houses still exist and trade in Jerez. We have Tio Pepe, Sandemans, Harveys and Garvey to name but a few. The original Bodega buildings are architectural dreams and many of the sherry bodegas offer visitor tours with tastings and rent out parts of their bodegas for parties and weddings.
Founded to promote and protect horse breading in Andalucia and to train the famous dancing horses. The Andalucian School of Equestrian Arte is one of the three world centres for training the dancing horses. Famous for their stunning exhibitions of both dancing and carriage handling the school is a fun day for all ages. Also of interest is the carriage museum which lies behind the horse school.
Jerez has a good combination of apartments, townhouses and detached houses with gardens. There are apartments both in the old town and new town areas and townhouses and detached houses lie more in the new areas. Shops, supermarkets, banks, schools, health centres and hospitals abound.
Jerez City is only 20 minutes from the airport and there is a mainline station and frequent bus service.Contact us Search for property for sale in Jerez de la Frontera
