IN VEJER DE LA FRONTERA – COSTA DE LA LUZ
EXCLUSIVITY, PRIVACY & CHARACTER IN THE PUREST ANDALUSIAN STYLE
Salt water pool, central heating, air conditioned, WIFI, satellite TV, 250.000m² of private forest and fields and just 3 km far from Montenmedio golf course & country club with it prestigious Sunshine Tour 2015.
Surrounded by its own private forest of pines, cork trees, centenary olive trees, and with unique and breathtaking views over the wonderful white village of Vejer de la Frontera, we find this amazing stately home, where its elegant combination of traditional and modern styles create a cozy and avant-garde atmosphere in the purest Andalusian style.
Vejer de la Frontera is, now days, a reference of the white villages and one of the most attractive tourist destinations in Andalusia, both for its history, gastronomy as for the natural environments of mountain and coast. Was declared a Historical Town, where the Arabic heritage permeates the architecture of its streets, houses and buildings. At the same time, numerous archaeological remains confirm the presence of Phoenicians, Carthaginians and Romans in these lands.
A VILLA DESIGNED FOR REST AND ENJOY THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Villa 'La Herradura' has been designed for enjoyment and thought for relaxation. A selection of classic furniture and art works, some of well known local artists like Manuel Manzorro, combine perfectly with the latest comfort systems including central heating and air conditioning in all rooms, Wi-Fi, satellite TV, full equipped wide kitchen (with large pantry), and an elegant dining room beautifully furnished connected with the stunning living-room.
The stately fireplace of it spacious living room with double height ceilings, the saltwater swimming pool, beautiful terraces, and the location of this amazing rural setting just 10 minutes drive from the sea, makes this property a perfect place to enjoy all year round.
FLEXIBLE AND ADAPTABLE
The resting area of the house is just amazing. Its 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms are distributed intelligently so that each one is completely independent from the rest. This allows a wide and comfortable habitability for more than one family, groups of friends, etc...
Four of the rooms have an en-suite bathroom, and almost all can be configured as double or twin beds as needed.
Warm colours and accurate details radiate calm and serenity along the 450 square meters house, terraces and gardens, creating a spacious and comfortable atmosphere.
360º OF PANORAMIC VIEWS AND NATURE
Like the own Vejer, the house boasts a strategic location on top of a hill. The main terrace is facing south west and has a shaded dining area as well as other comfortable and furnished living area, providing you an amazing panoramic views over the village, the marshes of Barbate River and even over the Strait of Gibraltar and Africa.
Its 25 hectares (250,000 m²) of private forest and fields, listed as Protected Area, together with the presence of birds like owls, storks, ibises and vultures, and the lush vegetation surrounding the house, complete an absolutely idyllic environment of pure nature for the enjoyment of the whole family.
No other property in the area can offer something like this, which makes it even more unique and exclusive to, among other things, celebrate a special event...
IDYLLIC WHEN NIGHT FALLS
The sunset gives way to one of the most idyllic images of the white villages of Andalusia and the Costa de la Luz.
With Vejer lighted as backdrop, the gardens of the house becomes into a different and very special place thanks to a careful project of outdoor lighting that highlights the strength and uniqueness of a garden and trees of more than a century old.
Centenary olive trees coexist with huge pine trees covered in ivy, mastic, rosemary and rocks taken from the own terrain, whose inlaid fossilized shells and other forms of marine life, shows us their geological past thousands of years ago, when the Atlantic Ocean covered these lands, today, 75 meters above sea level.

A fabulous property with spectacular views
We were a large family group of 11 - 6 adults and 5 teenagers visiting for a week in mid April.
The villa surpassed all our expectations, particularly the outstanding views of Vejer de la Frontera and the Barbate marshes and estuary. The villa was immaculate. A well equipped kitchen with everything you would need, spacious bedrooms and lovely areas to relax in whether it was the main living room or on the terrace overlooking the pool. We were greeted by the two housekeepers, Joaquim and Anna, who were really helpful and welcoming, showing us around the villa, and ,despite our very limited Spanish, making sure we understood and knew how to use the keys / alarm and giving us some useful advice about local supermarkets (we opted for Lidl in Barbate which was a 10 minute journey away, easy to park and had everything we needed).
If I had one bit of useful feedback it would be to have some local information printed out for visitors e.g. local attractions/fetes, restaurants, supermarkets, pharmacy, doctor, where to go with your recycling, etc, etc. We worked out most of it and did ask the home owner, Ignacio, about where to go in the mountains, who was really quick and helpful with his advice.
We would thoroughly recommend the villa to anyone else and would love the opportunity to come back again ourselves at some point in the future.
Charming Villa with exceptional views !
Thankyou Ignacio , we had a wonderful stay at the villa, everything was as described on HomeAway , stunning views of Vejer, manicured gardens , large terrace and pool area. The house was perfect for our family very well appointed with an exceptional master suite + each bedroom with shower/bathroom. 10 mins by car to the hill side town of Vejer with a fantastic choice of bars and restaurants.
We hope to be returning soon.
The Rose Family
Thank you very much for your kind review Mitch. It has been a pleasure to have you and your family at home.
Hope to see you again in the future.
I can't say enough good things about the villa, the grounds, and our host, Ignacio. Our week's stay was perfect in every respect.
We were a three-generation group of 10, celebrating a 50th wedding anniversary. With six bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, front porch, back terrace, and pool, the villa offered something for everyone.
The property is secluded, sitting atop a hill with incredible views across the valley to Vejer de la Frontera, one of the most beautiful of the pueblos blancos. Yet it is within a short driving distance of stunning beaches and the historic cities of Cadiz, Jerez, and Seville.
I highly recommend this property. Thank you, Ignacio, for all your help.
Thank you very much Pat. It is always good to know that my guests stayed well and enjoyed the area.
Surprising stay in Spain
We have had a very comfortable and pleasant stay at La Herradurra in the month of May 2016. The properly cleaned villa is situated at a wonderfull and quiet(!) location with a really very nice view on Vejer de la Frontera : a nice, authentic, small and charming village.
This part of Spain is quiet, but one has a lot of activities to undertake. You can travel on foot, by bike, on horseback or by car to the still quiet beaches, into the country or make a city trip.
Everything in the house that you possible might need is available.
We can recommend this estate for a nice stay in this part of Andalusia
Fantastic property for a wonderful holiday!
We had a great time at this lovely house. It offers a spectacular view of Vejer and is situated in beautiful grounds. The covered veranda offers welcome shade in the day time. At night the town is magically lit up as a stunning backdrop. The pool was at the perfect temperature and ideally located near the veranda.
The house has all modern comforts but at the same time quite classic, with a huge fire place and high ceiling in the living room. The bedrooms are stylishly decorated and especially the two master bedrooms which are truly luxurious. All rooms are air conditioned, which we appreciated.
We stayed here with two families with small children. The house worked very well for this set up. At night you have to be a bit aware of mosquitos, but we used mosquito coils and this helped a lot.
Nearby there are some great beaches. We often left quite late in the afternoon to go to the beach and they were still full of life. There are beaches for surfers, hipsters, family and everything in between. And hardly any non-Spanish tourists at all. We thought it was great!
We loved the house and definitely plan to return. Highly recommended!
Thanks Joanna for your kind review. It was a pleasure to have your family and friends at home and is fantastic that you all enjoyed the surroundings, our beautiful beaches, and other leisure options during your stay.
That’s one of the things travelers appreciate most of the property, it strategic location in the heart of the “Costa de la Luz”, in one of the most beautiful settings of Vejer de la Frontera, and just 15 minutes drive from everywhere (Restaurants, beaches and Natural parks)
I hope to see you soon again to keep exploring and discovering this special corner of Andalucia and Spain
Elegant Finca with outstanding views
For those looking for a first class, exclusive Andalucian property, this is simply the best we have stayed in on the Costa De La Luz.
Secluded, modernised (but not spoilt) farmhouse with outstanding views of the hilltop village of Vejer de la Frontera.
Perfect for a medium-sized family event or special occasion. On-going work/landscaping on the extensive gardens will make it even more spectacular.
Those with small children will need to be aware that the pool is unprotected. And the car-hire company won't appreciate the bumpy track to the house. But, trust me, its worth it.
