holidays in vejer


Welcome to the Holidays In Vejer website.  We stumbled across the village of Vejer in January 2000 and fell in love with the truly Spanish atmosphere and the wonderful weather. Where else in Europe can you lie on the beach in January?! Within a week we had bought our first property and we have been holidaying in the village several times a year ever since. Having browsed our website, we hope you will decide to explore the area yourself and stay in one of our 3 properties, which we have lovingly restored. We are sure you won’t be disappointed.

Vejer de la Frontera is situated on the Costa de la Luz in Andalucia, Southern Spain, on the beautiful Atlantic coast. It is a classic, white, Moorish hilltop town perched high above the steep gorge of the river Barbate and is virtually unknown to foreign tourists. Until a couple of decades ago, the women of Vejer wore long, dark cloaks that veiled their faces like nuns’ habits, but this custom is now almost extinct. It is a magical place to explore, with its brilliant white cobbled alleyways, iron-grilled windows, balconies and patios with terracotta pots filled with flowers and dozens of small tapas bars and restaurants. There is a magnificent castle and beautiful church. The town square, which is situated just a few minutes walk from the properties, has a wonderful old fountain with traditional ceramic Andalucian frogs, which spout water high into the air. There is a daily fruit/veg, meat and fish market and there are several small bakeries and grocery shops, as well as a good sized supermarket in the new part of town.

Please note that Vejer is a hilltop town and there are some steep, cobbled streets. The village is therefore not suitable for the elderly or those with mobility problems.

The nearest airports are Jerez (45 minutes), Seville (1 hour), Gibraltar (1 hour) and Malaga (2 ½ hours). Car rental is available at all airports.
