  • The perfect 'home from home' retreat with spectacular views of Vejer
    5 of 5

    We've stayed at this property with our two kids (5 and 9) twice now and have loved both experiences. Mario and Sofia are both very friendly and welcoming, and always happy to help in any way they can. The house is really well located, a short stroll to the heart of Vejer, not far from the local 'big' supermarket (Supersol) and it's fairly easy to find a parking space nearby – even during Feria! It's also a real 'home from home' with comfort and style in equal measure – the perfect place to relax and unwind at the end of the day. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you should need and both bathrooms have very good showers. We also very much appreciated the stash of beach toys, deckchairs and parasols that we were able to borrow for our many trips to the beach. The 'piece de resistance' has to be the roof terrace though, with its spectacular views over the old town – not forgetting the added boon of having a hammock! It's a great place to soak up the buzzing atmosphere of this fantastic white village of an evening. We'd highly recommend this property.

  • Nice apartment - "away from it all"
    4 of 5

    I was staying in the apartment for 1 week with my wife and 2 kids. Generally my impression was very good. We were not expecting any extraordinary services while we wanted to spend a week “away from it all” to recharge the batteries – and this is exactly what we got. The apartment presented on the photos looks like that in reality. It’s located in the fields what was quite exciting for the kids as they could see horses, cows etc. not moving away from the small garden in front of the building. The rooms were in a good condition and there was enough space for a family like us (4). Kitchen equipment was also good. The only issue in the apartment was the hot water that took us a while to figure out how to get it hot enough and with the right pressure. Getting to the beach or restaurants is quite a walk, but this perfectly meets the “no hurry” atmosphere of El Palmar. The beach is excellent but I would advise everyone not only to visit the one in El Palmar but to go to some other beaches around as well. The booking process was smooth and with no problems same as the pickup done by the owner. He doesn’t speak English so the communication was a bit challenging but with help of internet and online translators we managed that :) If we needed anything the owner was around and very helpful. I would recommend staying in the apartment. It’s worth the money you pay. We brought home great memories about the apartment, El Palmar and the whole area. Definitely would like to come back once in the future.
