About the property

Lovingly restored townhouse in Vejer de la Frontera, Costa de la Luz

Casa Relinque is a caringly renovated Moorish house just a five-minute walk from the old town’s centrepiece – the Plaza de Espana, which is a popular meeting place with many Spanish-style bars and restaurants. We are quite proud of its position and that's one reason why we fell in love with it - there are not many houses of this size in the old town. The house boasts three large bedrooms (two twins and one double), two bathrooms (one en-suite for the two twin rooms and one en-suite for the double room), a large kitchen and eating area, a separate lounge and a central hall-type area. From here we have installed a wrought iron spiral staircase that leads up to the roof terrace. Believe it or not from this description, Casa Relinque is built all on one level - just a few steps up from the street. This means it's brilliant for families and groups because it's easily accessible for all ages and everyone can enjoy the space provided.

Asa Relinque has its own private roof terrace and courtyard with purpose-built covered area, which is perfect for cooling off or fixing a drink in the midday sun or as the sun goes down after a hot day. Asa Relinque also has its own private swimming pool in the rear courtyard measuring 3x5m and with varying depths to cater for small children (the shallow end is just 80cm deep and the "deep" end is 1.5m). To one side of the pool area is a sheltered area, which we tend to use for eating. We have a gas-fuelled barbecue here too, which is perfect for entertaining. Casa Relinque is perfectly situated for the Easter Bull Run (it overlooks it) and it is conveniently located just a 3 minute car drive from from the local supermarket.

About The Owner

We met at a publishing company in London and we were both looking for something beyond the frantic rat-race of life in the big smoke! And Vejer de la Frontera was (and still is) the perfect tonic. A world away from the madding crowds on the Costa del Sol, Vejer lies in the heart of beautiful Andalucia and just a few miles from some of the most idyllic, peaceful and unspoilt coastline in Europe.

The Owner purchased this house in 2001

Why The Owner chose Costa de la Luz - Cadiz

Like most people, we wanted the perfect property. Close enough to shops and bars to give us some sense of civilisation, but with enough character and charm to enable us to get stuck into the Spanish life. We looked at rural fincas and villas but kept coming back to the white-walled hilltop village of Vejer. Then we went to have a look at 55 Juan Relinque - and bought it! It had all the character you could ever want, most of it in dire need of restoration. So we donned our best DIY clothes and got stuck in and with more than a little help from a local builder, we transformed the property into what it is today.

What makes this house unique

We've seen and been into plenty of properties in Vejer and I still think that ours has some extra-special features. Of course we're biased, but the fact that all the rooms are on one level and covering more than 250sqm, means that you can have 8 or 10 people in the house and you never feel like you're on top of each other. Yet despite it's size, you can walk into town in a few minutes and indulge in some fine Spanish tapas!

Guestbook comments from the owner

I can't recommend this house highly enough!! Spacious, clean and so well equipped! Great outdoor patio area with a lovely pool to cool down after walks through beautiful Vejer. Plenty of space and a large roof terrace ideal for sunbathing, dining and late night drinks, with amazing views of the old town area of Vejer. The house is done out in style and well looked after. A small shop for your daily shopping needs virtually on your doorstep and restaurants and bars within very easy walking distance. We spent two weeks here in the house in September and loved every minute of it! We have already booked our next stay, I think that says it all!
