You will be responsible for any damage to the rental property that is caused by you or your party during your stay.
Max guests: 7
Parking: lots of questions about this but nowhere to put the info. There is little/no parking in the historic centre, and in summer it is hard/impossible to drive in. In August: it's hard to find anywhere less than 15mins walk away. Off season: park in Remedios (5 mins walk). July/Sep: main carpark, 8 mins walk). No guarantees!
Long unspoiled white-sand beaches of El Palmar are approximately 15 minutes drive from the town, with a variety of restaurants. No intensive developments mar the beauty of these delightful places. Surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are available.
Nearest airport is Jerez, approximately 55 mins drive. Other options are Gibraltar and Seville, approx 2 hrs. A hire car is a good idea to enjoy the beaches. Parking is normally available on Avenida de los Remedios, about 8 mins walk away, but generally not nearer.
The house is completely central, located within the old walled town of Vejer, and is the perfect base for exploring all the town's tourist attractions on foot, including not least the adjacent church and very nearby castle.
There is a range of local restaurants and bars to explore, all just a short walk away. The market sells fresh local fruit and vegetables and fish, and is less than 5 minutes walk. There are now increasing numbers of deli-style shops, at least one convenience store in Plaza d'España, and several banks. The tourist information centre is 10 minutes walk. If you choose to arrive late on Friday on the Ryanair flight to Jerez, consider the delightful hotel 'Casa de la Califa' in Vejer for a one-night stopover.

I'm a professional living in central London. Owning the property has caused me to learn Spanish to a fluent level, read literature, travel widely.
Giles purchased this apartment in 2002
Why Giles chose Vejer de la Frontera
It was love at first sight! I love it, I know that I am looking after a special place with millennia of history, and I like that people are happy in it and that it contributes to the local economy. The people here have a lot of time for other people, especially Spanish speakers and it is a very warm and family-centric culture. I also value the very fresh air free of dust and pollution, the glorious local food and drink, the fact that not every single day has a blazing sun and blue sky, the climate is more nuanced whilst being at the southernmost tip of mainland europe. People live well here - oh that this were available elsewhere! This particular property is for those who love to be in the centre of it all, between church and castle - you will find others 'in the area', but it's not quite the same thing.
What makes this apartment unique
If you like to feel 'on top of the hill' then this property may appeal either because it is in such a privileged position, adjacent to the church overlooking some utterly beautiful cobbled streets and small plaza, or because of the unusually spacious 10m lounge and huge airy layout. If these aspects do not influence you, then all the delightful bars and restaurants within 5 mins may do so. The more homework you do, the more you will discover that this property is different from the average 100 square metre offering and that's why so many return - see the photos for guest commentaries of families who have been 10x and love it more and more.
