vejer really has changed so much since we first got our house 16 years ago. there was really only one hotel and a few hostels in town, but now there are many boutique style casas and numerous rooms and apartments to rent.
in the main square there is Casa de Califa , which now has lots of different rooms in the ever-growing sprawling hotel, all the rooms are quite traditional in a spanish moorish style, and there is a lovely atmospheric garden restaurant for breakfast and dinner.
the very quaint boutique hotel, siete balcones – with only 4 rooms in a beautifully restored casa in the heart of the old town of Vejer de la Fronterra – is tastefully decorated and sympathetic to the towns traditions.
casa shelley is another new boutique style hotel in vejer; looks beautifully designed and comfortable and comes recommended.
Casa La Siesta is based in the nearby countryside of Vejer, in a tiny hamlet Los parallels ,and is totally serene and grown up. Completely newly built, but using beautiful old doors and all the local materials, it’s reminiscent of an old finca, and is so well executed its hard to believe that its not an old original place. There are lovely terraces to sit and eat, a grassed pool area and the bedrooms are spacious and very comfortable. The main reception is a lovely high ceilinged hall. The only downside is that they don’t take children under a certain age. Perfectly peaceful, and only 10 mins from both the sea and the town of Vejer with all its amenieties, its ideal for a getaway that requires total quietness and relaxation.
Hotel Hurricane – just outside of Tarifa is fantastically situated, beautiful outlook and right on the seafront. rooms are quite standard, but who is going to spend their time in a hotel room.
friends also recommend 100% fun – sounds a bit of a naff name, but apparently its very good and again a short walk from the sea front and just outside of Tarifa – i think its the nearest you get to being in ibiza!
havent been to this hotel, but it was highly recommended to me – looks stunning – one of those special places for a special time. have a look at al aguilon– looks like my dream house. situated near the wonderful dunes of tarifa – the natural beaches are unspoilt and perfect for surfing.
took a look at the rooms of sajorami, in zahora – again perfectly situated on the seafront, you get little cabins – quite like a chalet in switzerland – but very good value.
