When summer's heat hits Andalucia's 'Coast of Light', you'll relish a siesta in these charmingly simple country cottages just minutes inland, near whitewashed Vejer de la Frontera. On eight acres of ecologically managed estate – some of it down on the river flats – are four white open-plan casitas with big sofas on terracotta floors, bright kitchen tiles under high wood ceilings, wood-burners for cool nights, and all you need to keep small children happy. Swim in the safely fenced pool, barbecue in the shade of trees and climbing vines, stroll the Citrus Walk or relish the heady breath of ornamental herb gardens. If you're feeling flush, rent the more luxurious cortijo for eight, with its two sitting rooms and open fires, its four-poster beds and great double-ended baths. It has its own panoramic pool, with bar and terrace, and gazes down to a water meadow teeming with nature. Tear yourself away to long soft sand beaches that are virtually empty until noon, go horse-riding, hire a bike or take a whale-watching tour; you could even pop over to Tangier. Chus the manager is full of helpful advice.

"Great family holiday. Stayed in the spacious 2 bed Mimosa with my 2 year old son. Toddler friendly with all the things you need for a little one (cot, chair, potty, etc). Great to have lovely grounds to run around plus the play area and pool became essential daily routines! Really beautiful beaches close by, and the town of Vejer great fun to run around. Relaxing quiet spot. Hardly heard the other 3 families staying at the time; but managed to get the kids together at the end of our week. Perfect if you've got kids and are happy to self cater and want somewhere to totally chill out."

"The cottage and its surroundings were the perfect setting for an incredibly relaxing holiday, it really couldn't have been any better. We had everything we needed for a really comfortable stay, everything had been organised so thoughtfully, from the blankets on the sofa, the sun loungers on our terrace that stayed sunny in to the evening and the swimming pool that had the perfect balance of sun and shade and was protected from the wind on the one windy day we experienced! A very useful book of recommendations was provided covering everything from when the baker arrives to the best beaches."
