Bienvenido a Vejer de la Frontera in Andalucia, Spain!
We’re owners of a private house in Vejer which we rent out to a few visitors a year. This website has been set-up to show you around the house, as well as to explain a bit about the surrounding area in Andalucia. We hope you enjoy it!
Vejer de la Frontera is a Medieval Hilltop Town right in the South of Spain
Located in the province of Cádiz, Andalusia, Vejer is a classic Andalusian Pueblo Blanco (“white village”), with the architecture of many of its houses from the period of Moorish rule, which lasted from 711 until the town was captured by Saint Ferdinand of Castile in 1248.
Vejer has a population of about 12,000, and contains an old town (complete with an incredible maze of narrow, winding cobbled streets), as well as a more modern side. [Watch a short video on Vejer]
Vejer is a Stone’s Throw from some of the most Beautiful Beaches in Spain
This stretch of coastline is called the Costa de la Luz (“Coast of light”) for a reason – for the incredible sunshine that bathes the coast in light year round. Staying in Vejer you’re utterly spoilt for choice as to which beach to head for. Forget the beer-swilling hoards on the Costa del Sol, the beaches near Vejer are spacious, natural and almost entirely undeveloped.
If you’re into all things Spanish; Tapas, Flamenco, Sherry Bodegas & long siestas, come to Vejer de la Frontera. If it’s Sky Sports, bangers & mash, and pints of lager you’re after, the Costa del Sol will be more your thing.
Rent our House in Vejer de la Frontera
A few years ago, having fallen in love with Vejer and the whole Costa de la Luz area, we bought a house in the centre of town. It’s a very well looked-after family house which we rent selectively to a few groups of people each year to help cover its maintenance costs.
We’ve been told that the house is an original Vejer house built by the Moors in medieval times, and could be as much as 1,000 years old! The house sleeps 6, and has a gigantic roof terrace from where you have incredible views for miles, and can even see the coast of Morocco in Africa on a clear day.
