About the home
Set on the edge of the village, this charming cottage invites guests to unwind and relax in the pretty terraced gardens with its vine-covered terrace and generously sized pool. In the evenings, nearby Vejer’s cosmopolitan atmosphere and large choice of Spanish, French, Italian and Moroccan restaurants may tempt you, although closer to home, Santa Lucia’s excellent La Tajea or Castilleria serve some of the best cuisine in the area. It’s hard to tear yourself away from this relaxing spot but with the golden sandy uncrowded beaches of this unsophisticated coastline, the many interesting historic cities and whitewashed villages all within a short drive, there is plenty to explore! There is a master double bedroom with en suite bathroom and a twin bedrooms with adjacent full bathroom along with the open plan living-dining-kitchen area. Due to the many terraces this house is not suited to toddlers or very young children, nor is it really ideal for the less mobile.

This deposit must be paid a minimum of one week prior to your holiday start date and will be refunded with ome week after vacating the property. Once we have received the deposit, we will then send you your driving instructions on how to find and access your property.
Clients should maintain the property in the same state of repair and condition as at the date of your arrival at the property and should leave the property in the same state of cleanliness and general order and repair in which you found it. Clients are kindly requested to replace breakages prior to departure or to leave an appropriate amount of euros to cover the cost of replacement.

The Costa de la Luz region
Andalucía - so much more than sun, sand and sierra... If I had to choose one word to describe this autonomous region of southern Spain – it would have to be diversity.
The eight provinces which make up Andalucia offer a wealth of diverse attractions, meeting the needs of almost every traveller.
Winter-sports enthusiasts can enjoy the snowy peaks of Mulhacen and Veleta, the highest mountains on mainland Spain.
Golfers are spoilt for choice – enjoying the established, world famous courses of Valderrama and Sotogrande along with the new kid on the block - Arcos Gardens, which is setting the standards for golfers in the new millennium.
Walking, hiking, cycling, canyoning, ballooning and paragliding are just some of the attractions you can enjoy in the 24 natural parks and 2 national parks. These parks also offer diverse cross section of flora and fauna, and are home to a variety of wildlife including eagles, vultures, deer and the Iberian lynx.
And for those looking for history, art and culture – then the majestic city of Granada, along with Cordoba, Seville, Ronda, Jerez and Cadiz are all waiting to be discovered.
Undeniably, many of the coastal areas have been irretrievably damaged by over development - this is true for much of the coast from Almería in the east to Algeciras in the west. Fortunately, the most beautiful beaches of the south coast which run west from the Windsurf and Kite-surf capital of Europe – Tarifa, to the Portuguese border have escaped mass market development and remain remarkably undeveloped. What makes the beaches of this area so appealing is that in the most part they are backed by sand dunes and marshland, by dense pine forests, vast fields of sunflowers and rolling pastures.
The Vejer de la Frontera area
Vejer de la Frontera – one of the prettiest towns in the whole of Spain, gleams like Persil-white, sugar cubes or a ridge 200m above sea level. Cosmopolitan and yet steeped in tradition, it is easy to understand why bustling Vejer is the ‘Jewel in the Crown’ of the pueblos blancos in western Andalucía. Artisans peddle their wears to the wealth of visitors, whilst the restaurants vie for business with their mouth-watering menus and innovative locations - like La Castilleria in the nearby, verdant oasis of Santa Lucia.
El Palmar – is arguably the best beach in the area and is also known locally as Vejer Costa. Popular with wave-surfers in the winter and kite-surfers in the summer, El Palmar has seven kilometres of golden-sand for those wishing to do little more than relax, read, eat, drink and doze. The string of houses, shops, bars and restaurants which have grown up behind the beach, combine to create a wonderfully, unsophisticated ‘village’ which attracts an incredibly loyal following. After an exhausting day of doing nothing, retire to Restaurante La Chanka for a sundowner and a superb fresh-fish supper – it’s as complicated as that.
Conil de la Frontera – a characterful fishing port town with half a dozen great beaches. The majority of the Tuna caught here is shipped to Japan, where it is considered a highly prized delicacy. Conil throbs in July and August with mainly Spanish and a splattering of northern Europeans, enjoying the age old traditions of a typical beach holiday i.e. sea air, sandy beaches, the freshest of fish and a glass of something chilled.
Cádiz - the oldest, continually inhabited city in Spain and possibly of western Europe. Sitting at the end of a narrow isthmus, surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, Cádiz is understandably worth a least a day of your holiday time – with something for everyone to enjoy. The narrow streets connect into splendid plazas, sub-tropical gardens and a magnificent cathedral, Cádiz has several splendid beaches including La Caleta which served as the set for Cuban scenes in the James Bond movie - Die Another Day. In February, the city vibrates as it hosts one of the world’s greatest carnivals.
