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..

More Details

Details for holiday home Casa Azahar (orangetree flower), 1 Bedroom, Sleeps 3, 1 Bathroom

Casa Azahar is a beautiful old-looking Andalusian house, with a large terrace at the entrance, to sit comfortable in the shade. We situated it at the beginning of our orange-yard. Especially in springtime, you can enjoy the smell of the flowering trees. It is a cool house, since it provides itself shade from the sun by all the trees that surround it. However those that like the sun, are free to enjoy the rest of the garden together with all the birds. Composed as following: (ground floor only), entrance by terrace to large living room, two seated sofa, TV with satellite and DVD-player, radio-cassette-CD player. A fully equipped kitchen, dining area with two seats, bathroom with shower and toilet, and a royal bedroom, equipped with two individually beds (90 x 200 cm). Each window gives you a spectacular view at the garden and our orange-yard. All windows are provided with mosquito screens. Heating is possible by a propane heater when necessary. The Finca and the pool are fenced.

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...

Guestbook comments from the owner

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

Lovely & very quiet place , very well located

  • 5 of 5

We really had a lovely holiday in la Finca Hijuela whatever in la Casa Madreselva (my favorite ) or Casa Azahar (my husband favorite one...).Description is accurate , properties are very clean, quiet, the owners are really friendly & provide you with all what you may need. I would really recommend this place to my friends. We enjoyed a lot the dogs , cats & chickens visits , it reminded us our childhood in our grand parents countryside .The finca is really close to Conil & Vejer de la frontera, and only half an hour from Cadiz, so very well located .For sure, we will come back !

Color Joyful haven amid Spanish zest for Life

  • 5 of 5

The selection of a suitable holiday home is difficult, but was by this House very simple. The condition was kept clean & beautiful and provided with small details, and the back reflected the country of Spain and the Dutch origin of the owner.

We get an optimal and individual preparation and supervision and have thought it right to recommend it to friends and family on.

The recreational opportunities by region and location was outstanding and the location and facilities with respect to the advert correctly.

By the environment and the rest but central location of the holiday home a color Joyful haven amid Spanish zest for life was born.

Holiday in september

  • 5 of 5

Last september we made a road trip in Andalucia and stayed for 5 days in caza Azahar, at finca La Hijuela. It is a wonderful place to stay! This is a place where you just can relax and enjoy the garden, animals, weather and the swimpool. Carin and Carlos are excellent hosts and do respect your privicy while still having attention to their guests. La Muela is quite place but Vejer is at 15 min drive and there are a lot of nice beaches not far away. We had a wonderful time and hope to come again to this nice place!

What can we say about this idyllic retreat.It is such a relaxing holiday destination that I'd recommend it every time. I did have trouble finding the site, so I would call the house as soon as you arrive in the village. Carin did drive down to meet us.

"Vejer on the hill" as I called it, is a beautiful little town with good walking, cafes, little shops and bars. We found that Conil has the best local beach, although we would have liked to try the stretch of sand between San Fernando and Cadiz. We visited Cadiz and Seville and were both stunning cities. You definately need a car!

We loved it!

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 .-
