The Experience

Relax in the shade of the veranda and watch the garden flourish; it is bio-diverse and chemical-free thanks to owner Juan’s passionate belief in sustainability. He can guide you to the best spots in the Coto Doñana National Park, Europe’s most famous bird reserve – the place is a paradise for twitchers!

Climb the spiral stair to the roof terrace for the best sunsets in Doñana, and cosy up to the wood fire in winter. The house stands virtually alone, screened by trees from its neighbour, with vast views across the saltmarshes to the sea, five minutes from Trebujena.

Escape the crowds of Seville, Jerez and Cadiz and stay here. Trebujena is an authentic little sherry town where you can happily pass a morning people-watching in the square. Be sure to visit Sanlucar too (22 kilometres) with its castle, tapas bars, and wonderful Manzanilla bodegas.

The neighbourhood

Tourist-free Trebujena (two kilometres) is surrounded by smallholdings, in charming contrast to the industrial agriculture close to Jerez. Do not miss the sherry bodegas! But the jewel in the crown is Coto Doñana, the vast bird-rich nature reserve on the other side of the river Guadalquivir which is tidal until Seville. Staying here gives the visitor a totally new take on Cadiz.

Local points of interest from Juan Martín Bermudez

  • Cadiz is an important migratory bird route and it’s the richest and best preserved province in Andalusia, with 234,000 ha of protected areas.Near the house is the main population of threatened birds as marbled teal, White headed duck, imperial Eagle, etc
  • Juan is a prominent Natural Park administrator and founded the Fund for the Protection and Stewarship of the Salt Marsh, SALARTE
  • Discover the famous salt harvesting in Cadiz , techniques that have been passed down through generations since Phoenician times. If you visit during harvesting season you’ll be able to collect your own virgin marine salt.
  • Minutes from El Martinete is the Strait of Gibraltar. Discover the Roman ruins, admire “levantá” (the raising of the nets in Almadraba tuna fishing) or follow a shepherd and watch the making process of Bolonia cheese.
  • Coast of Trafalgar: the Tajo Tower was a strategic view point to guard the coast against the threat of Berber pirates. Sail or kayak along the base of a cliff or enjoy a sunset at Trafalgar lighthouse
  • The Sierra de Grazalema is the territory of the Bonelli’s Eagle, Rock Bunting, Bonelli’s Warbler, Alpine Accentor and the Black Wheatear. Admire the archaeological ruins perched in the mountains.


Juan Martín Bermudez

Owner Juan, professional ornithologist and environmentalist, has single-handedly put sustainability and eco-tourism on the local map. His smile is infectious and his broken English forgotten in his passion for his subject. Living nearby, he offers special experiences of the area, and will look after you as much or as little as you’d like.
