Full Property description & Rustical Review

A neat house in a beautiful old village near Cadiz’s superb ocean: where the Spanish who know best go for their holidays. Golden sands, surfing, Atlantic beaches. Sleeps 5.

If you really want to know where the best beaches in Spain are – better even than the beaches of Asturias, Galicia and Catalonia – look to its southernmost tip.

From the Straits of Gibraltar, where the motorway turns into a highway and agricultural lands spread out either side, the road runs parallel with the Atlantic shoreline down from Cadiz.

Here are fabulous, broad strands of fine sand that stretch on and on and on… punctuated by coastal villages that escaped the zeal for overdevelopment that blights the Costa del Sol.

Vejer de la Frontera, a beautifully preserved hilltop town in the midst of this area, is a real gem. Raised 200 metres above the surrounding countryside and overlooking wheat, sunflowers, cattle and coastal pine forest, it is perfectly located for the finest of beaches, and our choice for a holiday home.

The house is centrally located in the old quarter of Vejer. It’s a modern affair within a town that has a distinctive Moorish influence and sinuous, whitewashed streets.

It’s smart and neat, a handy holiday home to return to after sun-filled days out by the sea or discovering the delights of Jerez, Cadiz, Roman archaeological sites, a boat excursions out to see the whales or even over to Morocco.

The house is distributed on four levels. The entrance is to a lobby off which leads a double bedroom with Queen size bed. This looks out over the pool and the white village. On the same floor is a complete bathroom.

Stairs go up to the largest of the three bedrooms, which has two individual beds, a vaulted ceiling and the same village view from a small balcony set with a glass-topped table and chairs: a private spot for breakfast or a quiet drink in the warm night.

A staircase (with some unguarded steps) descends to an open plan dining / living room that communicates with a narrow but properly equipped kitchen. The wooden dining table seats five people comfortably and the living area has a double-seater sofa and two comfortable armchairs.

Further seating continues outside on the pool terrace, which you can access from both the kitchen and the living room via French windows.

A large sunshade protects terrace furniture for outdoor meals, including barbecues, and the mosaic swimming pool (at 6 m by 3 m a decent size for a village house) is the clear choice for cooling off from the Andalusian sun.

Both pool and terrace are private and not overlooked, and a caretaker comes just once a week to ensure the pool is optimally maintained for you and give you a change of linen.

A third bedroom, suitable for an adult or two older children, is situated down nine exterior steps from the swimming pool terrace. It’s just a simple room furnished with a single bed, another pull-out bed, and a chest of drawers, but it has its own shower room alongside it.

Just down the street is a grocer’s, a very pleasant tapas bar with a terrace, a pastry shop and a tobacconist’s.

The road winds round to a long promenade mirador with views over the countryside and pretty, well-kept streets entwine to join the town’s old convent, fortified ramparts, ancient gates and a church whose minaret tower points to its previous role as a mosque: like much of Andalucia, Vejer was occupied by the Moors for over 500 years from the 8th century onwards.

The focal point of the town is the Plaza de España, also known as the “square of the little fish” for the sculptural fountain at its centre. There are a number of places to eat out round here and, as always, we will send our “inside tips” for restaurants, as well as recommendations for beaches and day trips, as one of your holiday documents.

As an appetizer, we would start you in the direction of the golden sands of the grand beaches at El Palmar, just 10 minutes away, Zahora, reached through cool Mediterranean pine forest, and Caños de Meca, where you can swim in the zesty Atlantic with a view of the lone lighthouse at Trafalgar in the distance. Surfers will find some of the best conditions anywhere in Spain here.

Vejer is easily accessed from the highway and local roads run down from there to the ocean where the beaches are linked by a coast road.

Cadiz is a perennial favourite for visitors, as is Jerez with its sherry cellars and Royal Equestrian School, and those with a historical bent will be intrigued by the Roman ruined towns at Bolonia and Medina Sidonia just half an hour away.
