Surrounding Area: The beaches on the Costa de la Luz are amongst the best in Europe - huge stretches of golden sand that are virtually deserted during the week. You can relax and unwind at the nearest beach of El Palmar which is a 10 minute drive.

Vejer has a number of fiestas and ferias throughout the year including Semana Santa (Easter) with processions and the bull run on Easter Sunday, the Spring Feria in April, the Fiesta of San Juan in June and the August Feria which ends two weeks of music in the town with a marvellous fireworks display.

Days Out: For adventurous days out there is kite surfing in Tarifa, surfing at El Palmar beach or scuba diving just of the coast of Barbate. Bolonia with the amazing Roman ruins and fish restaurants dotted along the beach. You can trek through the Alcornocales Natural Park or book a day at the Jerez School of Equestrian Arts and watch the horses training to dance in their world famous exhibitions. Enjoy a tour and sherry sampling at the Sherry Bodegas in Jerez or stop at Cadiz and enjoy its vibrant street life and stunning architecture. For nature lovers there are trips from Tarifa and Gibraltar to see the dolphins and whales in the Straits of Gibraltar and observe them in their natural environment, bird-watching all along the coast, horse-riding on the beach and a number of different national parks to visit. A trip to Africa is just an hour away so why not pop over to Tangier for the day and discover the delights of the Medina.

Beautiful and comfortable villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

4 adults and 3 teenage girls all wanted to stay longer in this lovely villa. As one noted, its not often that brochure pictures undersell a place but as first time visitors, we were really impressed with the place as soon as we arrived. The house is iteself is comfortable and well equiped (thankyou for providing a mjoito muddler!). There are lots of great places inside and outside the villa for eating or socialising together but also for sneaking off for a bit of peace and quiet. There were minor squables over who got the hammock, a particular favourite of mine.

The house was less isolated that we expected but still tranquil and we enjoyed walks around the quiet lanes nearby. Having La Patria restaurant just a few short steps away is a great bonus. We had a walk to one of the ventas in La Muela one morning for a cool drink. We'd also recommend the nearby pizza place, which took us a bit of time to track down but was well worth the effort.

There is plenty to do within a short drive of the villa: trips to Vejer were regular but we would also recommend Cadiz and whale watching trip from Tarifa.

All in all, a great holiday, and a beautiful villa that we'd highly recommend. We can't wait to go back, hopefully for a longer trip.

Perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

Great location and views. Beautiful gardens and private pool with lots of seating to enjoy the sun or shade. Villa well equipped and very comfortable. Enjoyed morning coffee in sun lounge. Short drive to Vejer and local beaches. The restaurant up the lane from Villa is excellent. Perfect retreat for recharging batteries.

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Las Maravillas in 2013 & 2014 and plan to return again. The villa is surrounded by beautiful countryside with stunning views. The villa is situated in the peaceful village of Patria, just a short walk from an exceptional restaurant. Freshly baked bread and other provisions can also be found in the village.

The villa is a short drive from the historic and very scenic town of Verja de-la-frontera and the beautiful El Palmar is close by.

This part of Spain is unspoiled and largely unaffected by tourism.

The villa is extremely comfortable offering everything needed for a perfect relaxing holiday be that for a couple or a larger group.

Views to die for

  • 5 of 5

Las Maravillas is an excellent villa and was spic and span when we arrived. The inside of the villa is well laid out with good sized bedrooms and is well equipped with everything that you might need for a relaxing holiday. The gardens and terraces are excellent and the views from the gardens are fantastic - depending on where you choose to sit you can see - the ocean, Vejer de la Frontera, Medina Sidonia and rolling countryside. We spent many happy hours just watching the view and were lucky enough to see some eagles circling on the thermals this summer.

There is a wonderful nearby restaurant which serves high quality food and the set menu is great value (22 Euros this summer). It is easy to reach the beaches of El Palmar and many others although being lazy we rarely strayed further. A trip to Cadiz or Jerez is easy from the house if some culture or retail therapy is required.

A fantastic location in the heart of real Spain and a great place to recharge the batteries. We are planning on returning.

Perfect villa for sun and the fabulous views

  • 5 of 5

This is a fantastic villa for anyone wanting to relax, recharge their batteries and soak up the sun.

The setting is fabulous, the views, particularly watching the sun set over the sea from the back terrace (cool drink in in hand), are amazing and the villa is very comfortable and stylish. The terraces on all sides means you can eat outdoors throughout the day.

The area around Patria and the Costa de la Luz is beautiful and the beaches are amazing - what is great about this villa is the sheltered pool, which means that even if the wind is doing its thing, you have somewhere to lie in the sun or plunge in the pool - surely better than doing battle with an umbrella or windbreak!

Restaurant Patria, only about 100m from the front door, is friendly and serves delicious food, and the owners speak impeccable English. There are plenty of other local restaurants (pizza, beach bars and restaurants, traditional tapas) in La Muela, Vejer, El Palmar and beyond - the owners provided plenty of information, recommendations and directions.

You need a car, but driving isn't arduous - particulalry as the major roads have recently been upgraded - and you soon get used to driving through narrow streets in Vejer (if not, there's a large carpark at the botton of the town which is free and safe).

I would throughly recommend this villa - it was a real treat to stay there, and I hope to return soon.
