The Jerez de la Frontera in the province of Andalusia has been hailed as a property hotspot and the city is attracting buyers those looking for "an exotic, lively city bolt-hole".

Jerez de la Frontera is in the province of Cadiz in the autonomous community of Andalusia in southwestern Spain. The city is popular for sherry and horses with a bit of flamenco to complete the full Andalucian experience. Budget flights have opened up the city to foreign tourism. The airport is only 6km away from the city centre and transfers can easily be reserved in advance.

The town dates back to Moorish times and it possesses an amiable old town, casco antiguo, with beautiful palm lined squares. The 11th century Moorish fortress and Alcazaba, the Sacristy of the Cathedral del Salvador attracts tourists from all over the world. The plans to build new leisure facilities in the town are already in place. The region offers both financial and lifestyle benefits to overseas buyers, such as its good climate and growing tourist market. As a result of the increased visitor numbers, prospective buyers are told that property values are going up.

Estate agent Chris Mercer Speaking to the Times highlighted the investment potential of renovated properties in the region, which are renovated sympathetically to include modern amenities. He added that strict planning regulations by the local officials meant that the properties stayed true to the Spanish character and that the renovated properties coming onto the market were "perfect" for overseas buyers.
