What a pleasure! A carefully restored, simply stylish, softly coloured townhouse a short cobbled walk from Vejer’s main square and close to El Palmar beach. Comfortable beds (deep sprung mattresses, downy pillows) can be twins or doubles. The Master bedroom (with the spacious bathroom) and the 2nd twin are the brightest, with pine forest views; the smaller twin is cleverly lit, with wall hangings – all have pretty fabrics and handsome reclaimed pieces like distressed timber doors. The downstairs sitting room has TV and DVDs, a Moorish feel, books and games, the bigger, upstairs one, an Indonesian table, L-shaped sofa on rustic tiles. French doors lead to the main terrace with pergolas, sunbeds, a solar shower, BBQ and fine views over paddy fields, umbrella pines and Vejer rooftops – glimpses of Africa on a clear day. You’ve a small, well-equipped kitchen and all the restaurants in the historic maze of Vejer to choose from – it’s a foodie place. Go whale watching, kite surfing, to Cadiz, to Bolonia, for Roman ruins, Jerez for sherry and the Spanish riding school… Or stay close to home – it’s lovely.
