Great Things to Do Near Hacienda La Parrilla Alta
In the beautiful gardens and secluded pool of your own house and drink in the atmosphere of this old country mansion house with its terraces and courtyard.
Carthusian Horse Centre
Visit the national breeding facilities on the road to Jerez and see the best horses in the country! This place shows the sheer natural beauty of the animal.
Wander Around the Old Towns of Jerez and Arcos
They're both easily reached, just a few miles away.
Sip Sherry in Jerez de la Frontera
Home of sherries - a surprisingly wide range of types of wine are made in the unique Sherry method and you can watch it being made if you visit one of the several Bodegas in the region. Tio Pepe is especially well organized with tours and generous samples! It's easy to find too.
Visit Tarifa at the Southernmost Tip of Andalucía.
See the kite surfers (you could have a go yourself!), explore the castle and the old town and marvel at the views of Morocco. Africa is just 11 miles away across the Straits.
Explore Medina Sidonia
Visit the church and the Roman ruins and explore the old town that was once largely owned by the wealthiest family of Spain.
Be amazed by the scale of these largely overlooked Roman remains. A whole Roman city, tucked away in a curve of the coastline just north of Tarifa. You can follow your archaeological exploration with a great fish lunch right there on the beachside!
Visit Cape Trafalgar, its Lighthouse and Beaches
In 1805 the famous naval battle was fought just 5 miles off shore from the headland and you can begin to imagine the scene at this atmospheric and beautiful spot. The beaches here are superb too.
The old town is an absolute gem. Some suggestions: visit the cathedral, climb the Torre Tavira, explore the castle and get a sense of its naval history, or simply sit in a patio, bedecked with flowers and people watch.
...for leather goods in Ubrique.
Discover its cathedral and the exquisite Moorish palace or Alcazar. You can even take a city bus tour - it's a great way to see the sights.
Visit Doñana National Park
Take a boat from Sanlucar up the River Guadalquivir and then continue the tour in a 4-wheel drive desert bus! This is Europe's largest birdlife reserve and quite unique. Look out for the Iberian Lynx, wild boar and deer.
A day at the races
Horse racing right on the beach at Sanlucar. This event takes place twice during the month of August.
Visit Gibraltar for the Day
Definitely not Spain - and not Britain either. A good day trip - the best bit is the Rock itself so take a cable car ride, or a taxi or walk... to the top!
Take the Kids to Aquasherry Water Park
... outside Jerez. Make the children the excuse and have a great time yourself on the slides and plumes.
Play Golf !
There are some great courses in the area, all available to non-members. Montecastillo at Jerez and San Roque near Algeciras are the most famous but there are several others - Montenmedio near Vejer and the new course at Benelup.
Visit the Zoo
Jerez Zoo is interesting and well run. It's a worthwhile half-day outing.
See the Royal Equestrian School in Jerez
The grand centre of the equestrian arts where daily displays of horsemanship can be seen.
Take a Drive and Explore
There is much stunning scenery within easy reach - there's a beautiful mountain drive via Alcala, Ubrique, Grazelama and El Bosque.
Tapas & Flamenco!
There are so many great tapas bars in Jerez and the surrounding area, then after sampling some why not visit a flamenco show.
