Shared accommodation in Jerez

by rosesantafe

Hey everyone.I am moving to Jerez for the year starting October 2006 as part of my Spanish degree course.I am going to be teaching in Arcos de la frontera. I am looking for shared accommodation with other students. Grateful for any advice or contacts you could give me. Thanks. Rachel xxx

RE: Shared accommodation in Jerez

by puerto_lover

Will you stay in Jerez and travel into Arcos for your teaching? Or will you stay in Arcos and go into Jerez from time to time? I say this because Arcos is becoming popular with people working in Jerez and this will increase because of the new dual carriageway road that will be opened next year. Part of it has already been built. It will be then very easy to travel between the 2 places by Bus or Car and reduce the time to possibly 15 minutes. Buses in the morning are quite 'frequent' but at other times of the day you may have to wait. Arcos itself is changing and becoming more popular with newcomers and does have plenty to offer. It has a different 'feel' compared with Jerez and although it is a large country town does still feel recognizably of modest size ! if you see what I mean. I can't help you with regard to sharing accom. though - sorry.

RE: Shared accommodation in Jerez

You're unlikely to find anything on the net- wait until you get to Jerez and then visit the campus out by the old prison (barriada la asuncion) and the faculties of art and empresariales on calle porvera, there you should see postings for people looking to share flats, as well as in some of the photo copy shops across the street. From time to time I have also seen people advertising flats to share in CiberJerez, a cyber cafe just around the corner from the Gallo Azul on calle Larga.

Travel Tips for Jerez de la Frontera

FAIR OF THE HORSE "2006"

by LoriPori

One of the oldest and largest fairs in Andalucia The FAIR OF THE HORSE or Feria del Caballo, was held from May 7 to May 14 in Parque Gonzalez Hontoria, which is on Avenida Alcalde Alvara Domeque. The "Walk of Horses" is a show of grandeur as hundreds of horsemen of all ages parade with elegance through the fairgrounds..
I truly loved and enjoyed this " cultural experience". It is a celebration of all the things that Jerez is famous for and which Andalucians love - SHERRY - FLAMENCO - BULLFIGHTING and HORSES.
But what is even more important is that Hans and I got to share this experience with our dear friends Carmen and Stace & Andrew and Liz.

Coto Doñana National Park

by lomi

The Cota Doñana National Park is a bus and short ferry ride from Jerez.

It used to be the hunting grounds for the Kings of Spain until General Franco came along. Fortunately he did hardly anything to it and it now belongs to the state. It remains one of the few untouched landscapes in Spain with wetlands, pine forests, beaches and dunes where wildlife can flourish.

Doñana comprises delta waters which flood in winter and then drop in the spring, leaving deposits of silt and raised sandbanks and islands. These conditions are perfect in winter for geese and ducks, in spring they attract hundreds of flocks of breeding birds.

In the marshes and the cork oak forests you've a chance of spotting grey herons, lanner falcons, ring and turtle doves, partridges, oxpeckers, cattle egret, storks and vultures. You may catch a glimpse of a Spanish Imperial Eagle, (now only to 14 breeding pairs).

The only way to view the park is by guided walks. The riverboat, Real Fernanando, leaves from Sañlucar twice a day in high season and once a day November to February. It tours the coast of the national park and makes several stops for everyone to get off and go on guided walks to select places that does not disturb the wildlife.

You must book in advance. Imprescindible haver reserva. We got the hotel receptionist to do this on our behalf and she put the cost of the ferry trip on our hotel bill.

To visit the principal visitors' centre at El Acebuche, take the A483 south of Almonte and about 12km from El Rocío is the signposted turn at Km29 for Centro de Recepción El Acebuche (959 44 87 11), 1½km from the main road. Alternatively, you can drive 3km north of Matalascañas to the turn-off at Km29.

Address: Sañlucar beach (to catch ferry)
Directions: Take a bus to Sañlucar from Jerez bus station. A 5-10 walk from the bus station to the beach.

Camera Obscura

by angidesign

Great overview over the city - in realtime!! It is a very simple and old principle, but very impressing at the same time. A great thing. Its near the cathedral in the Tower in the Alcazar and you get a certain date, when entering the Museum. The staff is very helpful and nice!

Cathedral of San Salvador

by smschley

The Cathedral in Jerez was built during the 18th century in Baroque style with some added Gothic and Neoclassical elements and a wealthy adorned interior. The present church is one of the largest religious buildings in Jerez, Cathedral of San Salvador, Plaza de la Encarnation. is renowned mainly for its 14th century figure of Christ and Zurbaran's painting 'La Virgen Nina'.

Gonzales Byass Bodega, tasting area

by Martin_S.

After we finished our tour of the winery and distillery, we were escorted into the tasting area where we were served several types of the sherry. One small 500ml bottle was given to us and another glass of a more expensive type was poured for us. We also opted for the addition of a TAPAS serving with our sherry. This made for a nice interlude after our tour and before we hit the streets of Jerez again. After you finish your drink and food here you can enter the shop where you can purchase all sorts of products with the company logo of the Tio Pepe....We also found to our surprise bottles of sherry with a Kosher label.
