Lovingly restored townhouse in Vejer de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz
We met at a publishing company in London and we were both looking for something beyond the frantic rat-race of life in the big smoke! And Vejer de la Frontera was (and still is) the perfect tonic. A world away from the madding crowds on the Costa del Sol, Vejer lies in the heart of beautiful Andalucia and just a few miles from some of the most idyllic, peaceful and unspoilt coastline in Europe.
Owner purchased this House in 2001
Why Owner chose Vejer de la Frontera
Like most people, we wanted the perfect property. Close enough to shops and bars to give us some sense of civilisation, but with enough character and charm to enable us to get stuck into the Spanish life. We looked at rural fincas and villas but kept coming back to the white-walled hilltop village of Vejer. Then we went to have a look at 55 Juan Relinque - and bought it! It had all the character you could ever want, most of it in dire need of restoration. So we donned our best DIY clothes and got stuck in and with more than a little help from a local builder, we transformed the property into what it is today.
What makes this House unique
We've seen and been into plenty of properties in Vejer and I still think that ours has some extra-special features. Of course we're biased, but the fact that all the rooms are on one level and covering more than 250sqm, means that you can have 8 or 10 people in the house and you never feel like you're on top of each other. Yet despite it's size, you can walk into town in a few minutes and indulge in some fine Spanish tapas!

Perfect house in perfect location
We loved our stay in this beautiful house and will definitely be back. Great location in the old town but it still felt really peaceful. Pool area gets the sun all day and very sheltered so nice to have dining table and chairs in the shade. Views from the huge roof terrace are stunning-especially when the sun is going down. House was v well equipped both inside and out with comfy beds and we especially appreciated all the beach equipment for trips to lovely local beaches (we went to El Palmar and Barbate-both lovely but different). All the tips Andrew provided in advance were brilliant. Vejer is beautiful with a huge variety of fantastic restaurants and bars. Visit to tuna museum in Barbate also recommended (reserve online) for something a bit different.
Summer holiday 2019
Very comfortable and well appointed property in an excellent location - perfect for all our holiday needs. We hope we will go there to stay again.
AMAZING house in Vejer..
We have been visiting Vejer for over 15 Years and this time our accommodation was the best yet. The house was Fantastic and had everything you needed for a great stay. Ideally located, a short walk from the old town to the new town. The pool and terrace areas were beautiful and were very well equipped. We would highly recommend this property and we can’t wait to visit again...
Location is good, lovely pool & private sunbathing
Large spacious house with a very well equipped kitchen. The owner left lots of sundry items and all towels are provided with 4 good sun loungers. However I was disappointed with the general condition of the house. Coat hooks, door hooks lose in the wall, windows above the bathrooms leaked when it rained and the interior walls need a lick of paint. The house also smelled damp and white flecks of plaster continually fell onto the kitchen work tops.
All that said the pool area is good with a BBQ area and outside table for eating and the roof terrace is spacious and also has a good sized table for eating. Another 2 sun loungers on the roof terrace so plenty of room for a family of six.
This villa is wonderful: very spacious, well looked after and with a great pool and roof terrace.
We had a very enjoyable stay here. All the rooms are generously sized and the pool area and roof terrace are perfect suntraps.
The house is well equipped and the beds were comfortable.
We would highly recommend this house and would be keen to stay here again on future visits to the area.
