Finca la Hijuela is situated in the hills close to Vejer, in a small village, on a ground of over 7000 m². There are four rental houses on the Finca, all surrounded by very old oak trees, and more than 30 orange-lemon-grapefruit trees. We also grow almonds, guavas, olive and figs (among many others). In the centre of the Finca you find a large pool (10 x 5 m). In this colourful mature garden, you have all privacy wanted. You can finally read that book you wanted for so long. You have nothing to read? Than visit Vejer, Conil, Medina Sidonia, Seville, Cadiz, Tarifa, Gibraltar or any other not so famous villa that is near. Enjoy the most beautiful beaches of the Costa de la Luz with more than 15 km of fine sandy beaches. The nearest beach is about 8 km near. Make a trip to Morocco. Several nice restaurants are nearby. This is the perfect place to get some amazing experiences and very special memories out of your holidays. This is for all those who like the sound of cowbells in the distance and the smell of jasmine.

Separated houses on a big piece of land, fenced, views from every window into your private piece of garden, mosquito screens, mature garden; old trees, beautiful and colourful, large salt-water pool, possibility to have dinner at your own house, in the middle of nature, quiet..

About the Owner

I was born in Holland, during my childhood i often spent my whole summers in Conil de la Frontera, Cadiz, since a friend of my mother lived there. Holidays seemed endless back then, and I really enjoyed being in southern Spain. Then, as a teenager, I met my now husband... We have been living in Sevilla together, then 10 years in Holland again, and finally we bought our finca and started our new life here...

Erholung pur!

  • 5 of 5

Im Sep. 2015 waren wir nun das vierte Mal auf der Finca von Carin und Carlos in La Muela. Wir denken, das spricht für sich und sagt alles. Wir kommen immer sehr gerne wieder, denn hier kann man sich erholen. Diesmal machten wir uns nach einer traumhaften Tour durch Nordspanien weiter auf den Weg nach Andalusien, natürlich nach La Hijuela - das ist wie nach Hause kommen zu Freunden.

Alles andere ist schon in unseren anderen Bewertungen gesagt :-)!

Ganz liebe Grüße aus Berlin.

Bis bald mal wieder,

Pamela und Matthias

Een heerlijk groen, rustig paradijsje.

  • 5 of 5

Een heerlijk groen, rustig paradijsje.

'S nachts, geheel gratis, een adembenemende sterrenlucht.

In de directe omgeving veel plaatsen te bezoeken, terrasjes te ontdekken, geuren op te snuiven. En dan de onweerstaanbare Atlantische Oceaan met zijn golven.... Volgend jaar zéker wéér!

Sehr erholsam!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren bereits auf der Finca gewesen und kamen gerne wieder zurück, weil der erste Urlaub schon so erholsam gewesen war. Unser neuerlicher Besuch ließ ebenfalls nichts zu wünschen übrig. Es ist einfach ein Paradies! Die Gastgeber Carin und Carlos waren sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Jederzeit konnte man sie ansprechen, sogar von unterwegs, wenn man einmal Hilfe brauchte. Im Haus selbst fehlte es an nichts - die perfekten Rahmenbedingungen für einen erholsamen Urlaub. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. Das nächste Mal im Herbst, da ist es dann doch etwas angenehmer und nicht so heiß.

Encantadora, agradable y tranquila casita

  • 5 of 5

La finca posee cuatro casitas dispuestas en torno al jardín. La intimidad es completa, pues la distancia, los árboles y las plantas consiguen aislar magníficamente cada una de ellas. Una pequeña piscina permite además refrescarse y disfrutar de un buen baño. La casa La Encina, amplia y fresca, es más que suficiente para una pareja. Nosotros disfrutamos mucho de su porche y del jardín. La hemos recomendado a amigos y esperamos poder repetir.

Sit back and enjoy!

  • 5 of 5

The perfect location if you want a completely relaxing environment which is also handy for interesting days out. The little house we stayed in was beautiful - all built in the traditional Andalusian style with so much attention to detail. Close to the pool, we were able to swim before breakfast every morning, and relax on the loungers in the afternoons whilst still being handy for cups of tea, glasses of sherry, vino, sun cream, books, internet and all other essential (?) relaxation-enhancing equipment. The garden is lush and beautiful, and all kinds of animals made themselves apparent - the owners' cute little dogs, mother hens with clutches of chicks, tortoises, cats (and kittens), plus the local bird life, including swallows regularly swooping down to the pool for a drink on the wing, and unidentified others singing their hearts out. We loved it. We visited Cadiz, Gibraltar and Tangier, and could also have included Seville but will save that for another time - the lure of the garden and the pool were too great. The local town, Vejer, is gorgeous. Tip: buy a good map - it's like the Hampton Court maze. We recommend this Finca highly, and hope future guests enjoy their stays there as much as we did. Thank you Carin and Carlos.

in een woord geweldig!

  • 5 of 5

Ons verblijf vorige week in Finca Hijuela was weer geweldig. We zijn hier al paar keer eerder geweest. Maar grote huis was nu helemaal weer geschilderd en opgeknapt. Zag er gezellig uit en voelde als „thuiskomen”. Wat een paradijs, zo in mei dan staat alles in bloei, wat een bloemenpracht, tuin was op zijn mooist en prachtig onderhouden. Carlos en Carin gastheer en gastvrouw zijn ook geweldig, je kunt ze altijd aanspreken en vragen worden opgelost. We hadden twee huisjes gehuurd en we hebben zo’n heerlijke week gehad. Kon niet beter, een aanrader voor iemand die ook van rust houdt, maar er is ook genoeg in de omgeving te doen en te zien. Strand is dichtbij en leuke steden. Cadiz is een aanrader en Tarifa en Conil.

Prachtig weer daar nog bij, dus wat wil je nog meer - niets meer.... alleen snel weer keer terug, de moeite waard!! lieve Carlos en Carin tot snel weer.

groet Kees, Louise, Loes, Linde Nico en Nikki

From the Owner

The surroundings are so beautiful, it´s pure nature, and aboveboard, nothing to do with our lifestyle in Holland. We live away from it all, but on the other hand, everything is so close, you can easily visit a lot of different towns and cities, each of them with their unique delights. But when you get back, entering the gate, you smell the garden , the pine trees and enjoy a soft blowing wind and you feel like you can be yourself..

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : 1;Jerez de la Frontera// 2;Seville//3;Malaga at 70 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : in La Muela, 200mtrs at 500 Metres Nearest Ferry : Tarifa / Morocco at 40 Kilometres Nearest Train : San Fernando at 20 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : Vejer de la Frontera at 3 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : La Muela, IL FORNO at 500 Metres Nearest Beach : El Palmar de Vejer de la Frontera at 7 Kilometres Car: necessary

Finca la Hijuela is the perfect place to combine disconnecting and doing culture.You can find it all within 100 km.!! Ancient Cadiz, Jerez with bodegas and the horse riding school, Seville with its Moorish architecture and Flamenco Tablaos, Tarifa (the ruines of Baelo Claudio), Trafalgar, as also Vejer, and Medina Sidonia are worth a visit. And when temperature keeps rising, there are excellent beaches nearby. More than 15 km of fine sandy beaches, laying just there to be enjoyed by you. Sometimes you can see Morocco. It is easy to do your shopping, on the local fresh-markets and there are enough (super)markets and shopping malls in Conil (10 min.), Vejer (7 min.), and Chiclana. Several good restaurants are nearby, some in real surprising locations. In summer evenings you can assist to the many local ferias. Do not feel like driving, culture, people? In our garden you can submerge yourself in a cool big salt-water pool, (10 x 5 m) and hear the birds sing. Just take a swim and relax. Also available for Yoga retreats..Aks for information.

Other Activities: What about listening the birds sing and have a quiet swim?

Golf: There are several golf courses nearby, the distances are given in a estimated way: Campano Club de Golf at 10 Km .-Golf Novo Sancti Petri at 12 Km .-

  • Casa Encina is a new house, but the ambiance is of an old farmhouse, windows and doors are all of wood. It has been furnished in Moorish style. There are communal sun beds at the pool, however we feel everybody should respect the intimacy of the pool. So each house has its sun chairs there.
