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.

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...

Nuestra estancia en la finca La Hijuela, concretamente en Madreselva fue maravillosa. El entorno es un placer para vista y oído, es todo tan natural que perece sorpendente poder estar en esa tranquilidad con la diversidad de animales que corretean por el patio y alrededores. La casa tiene todo lo que es necesario y es amplia para dos personas, el porche es un lujo que se aprovecha al máximo.

Los dueños de la finca son muy agradables y están penientes de los problemas o duduas que puedas tener, son muy respetuosos y te ofrecen intimidad absoluta, así que si los quereis saludar no hay ningún problema y si no los veis algún día tampoco pasa nada.

En definitiva, que estamos muy contentos de haber ido a esta finca y haber conocido a sus encantadores dueños. Lo recomendamos a todoas las personas que les guste estar rodeados de naturaleza, tranquilidad y buena gente.

Peaceful house surrounded by lovely gardens

  • 4 of 5

There are 4 houses for rent plus the owner's house. We were in house Tepuana which is on a very private location but still handy for the pool. The house was well equiped and decorated although a few minor items such as the coffee maker not working properly needed attention. Carin and Carlos were friendly and helpful. There are limited shops and bars in the village of La Muela itself and getting around without your own transport would be difficult. We didn't try the bus but apparently there is one bus a day from Barbate and Vejer via La Muela to Conil and Cadiz in the morning and one in the opposite direction in the evening. The old hilltop town of Vejer is worth taking a look at and there are a lot of good places to eat. On the coast there are lots of beaches. We tried Los Canos de Meca, El Palmar and Trafalgar Lighthouse which were all good. The Eastern end of Canos de Meca has attractive sheltered rocky coves but a lot of the sand is covered at high tide. There was a relaxed mix of clothed and nude bathers on all the beaches we visited. There are marked footpaths and good opprotunities for bird watching near the Barbate river.

Erholsamer Urlaub auf wunderschönem Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

Auf La Hijuela wird man als erstes freundlich von den Hunden begrüßt, in puncto Herzlichkeit werden die Tiere aber aber von den Gastgebern noch übertroffen. Die Abgeschiedenheit des Ortes garantiert Ruhe und pure Entspannung auf der (in La Madreselva überdachten) Terrasse, das Haus überzeugt mit seinem andalusischen Stil und ordentlich ausgestatteter Küche mit Gasherd und großem Kühlschrank, so dass auch die kulinarischen Wünsche bei uns nicht zu kurz gekommen sind. Für einen ausreichenden Vorrat an Essen und Getränken sollte allerdings eine längere Fahrt zu einem großen Supermarkt in Kauf genommen werden. Die Räume sind schön gestaltet und sauber, die Finca überzeugt mit zahlreichen Tieren und schön angelegten Gärten voller Blumen und Obstbäumen. Das Krähen der hofeigenen Hähne in den frühren Morgenstunden irritert zunächst, rückt aber nach kurzer Eingewöhnungszeit in den Hintergrund. In ca. 10 Minuten mit dem Auto gelangt man nach Vejer, das mehr als einen Besuch wert ist. Cadiz, Jerez und Sevilla sind mit dem Auto ebenfalls gut zu erreichen, die Landschaft ist gerade in den Frühlingsmonaten fantastisch. Ungefähr 15 Minuten braucht man bis zur Playa del Palmar, die Ende April / Anfang Mai spärlich belagert wird und zu langen Strandspaziergängen / Planschen im Meer einlädt. Ein ganz herzlicher Dank geht an unsere Gastgeber Carin & Carlos, die uns den Aufenthalt so angenehm wie möglich gestaltet haben, uns nützliche Tips gegeben haben, jederzeit ansprechbar waren und uns u.a. am Sonntag nach der Anreise mit Kaffeekapseln versorgt und damit das Frühstück gerettet haben. Ein unvergesslicher Urlaub, ein Aufenthalt auf La Hijuela kann wärmstens empfohlen werden.

We had a fantastic time at Finca la Hijuela. We wanted a quiet place to get away from the holidays and found just what we were looking for. The hosts were supernice and helpful without being overwhelming. Everything we needed was provided and I would definitely recommend this place to people I like.

You do need a car to get around, though.

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 .-

  • We have furnished La Madreseva in Moorish style, according the tradition here. (colours, blankets, lamps, stones and wood). At the pool there are communal sunbeds, however we feel all the guests should respect the intimacy of the pool. So each house has its own sun chairs at the house. Laundry service for bed linen and towels possible. The washing machine is communal with casa Encina and Azahar. We would recommend this house specially to people that are looking for a nice, cool house in the high-season.
