About Vejer de la Frontera



The town of Vejer de la Frontera occupies a hill overlooking the Straits of Gibraltar (with views all the way to Morocco on a clear day) and is surrounded by orchards and orange groves. It contains several ancient churches and convents, and the architecture of many of its houses harks back to the period of Moorish rule, which lasted from 711 until the town was captured by Saint Ferdinand of Castile in 1248.

Vejer’s an extremely old town, and the houses (like ours) are flat-roofed, white-washed, Arabic style houses with metre thick stone walls to keep the searing Summer heat out.

In recent years, Vejer’s developed a bit of a reputation as a secret celebrity hangout – with the likes of Damien Hirst, Darryl Hannah, Jude Law and Paul Weller regular visitors. Jude Law’s even rumoured to have bought a house there.

Despite this, Vejer feels suitably ‘off the beaten track'; low-key but with a sprinkling of stylish and upmarket hotels hidden away down its alleyways, some very fine restaurants, chic boutiques and wonderfully unspoilt beaches on the delightful Costa de la Luz.
