Vejer de la Frontera is a stunning white-walled hilltop village (pueblo blanco). It is steeped in history and as as result is popular with historians, writers and painters. There is a range of local restaurants and bars to explore, all just a short walk away. The market sells fresh local produce and fish, and is less than 5 minutes' walk away. There is also a large supermarket close to the house, plus a bakery, several banks and the tourist information centre. There are locally organised groups for mountain-biking and walking available in season.
Casa Relinque benefits from a great location situated on the longest street in the town, Juan Relinque. The house also has a prime vantage point for many festivals and overlooks the Easter weekend bull run.
The nearest beaches are El Palmar and Canos de Meca about a 10-minute drive from the house. These unspolit beaches are beautiful with white sand and clear water. Surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are available. Just a few miles further up the coast you'll find Conil de la Frontera and La Barrosa, both very well equipped with on-beach restaurants and showers.
Nearest airport is Jerez, approximately 1 hour drive away. Ryanair fly direct from Stansted. Gibraltar is approximately 1 hour away also served by Gibraltar/BA/Iberia, Seville airport is approximately 1 hour 30 min drive, served by BA; Malaga is 2 hours away served by Easyjet, BA. A hire car is a good idea to make the most of the local towns and beaches, suppliers include Auriga Crown and Niza. Parking is available just 50 yards from the house.
The house is positioned in the popular old town and is the perfect base for exploring all the town's tourist attractions on foot, including the church and castle.
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!
