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!

Wonderful spacious house with great pool with privacy and fantastic views over the old town from the roof terrace! Clean and well equipped. Ideal home away from home. Needless to say we are returning later this year. Can't recommend highly enough!!

Special interest holidays:

Vejer de la Frontera is a stunning white-walled hilltop village (pueblo blanco). It is steeped in history and as as result is popular with historians, writers and painters. There is a range of local restaurants and bars to explore, all just a short walk away. The market sells fresh local produce and fish, and is less than 5 minutes' walk away. There is also a large supermarket close to the house, plus a bakery, several banks and the tourist information centre. There are locally organised groups for mountain-biking and walking available in season.

Casa Relinque benefits from a great location situated on the longest street in the town, Juan Relinque. The house also has a prime vantage point for many festivals and overlooks the Easter weekend bull run.

Coast/Beach:

The nearest beaches are El Palmar and Canos de Meca about a 10-minute drive from the house. These unspolit beaches are beautiful with white sand and clear water. Surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing are available. Just a few miles further up the coast you'll find Conil de la Frontera and La Barrosa, both very well equipped with on-beach restaurants and showers.

Travel:

Nearest airport is Jerez, approximately 1 hour drive away. Ryanair fly direct from Stansted. Gibraltar is approximately 1 hour away also served by Gibraltar/BA/Iberia, Seville airport is approximately 1 hour 30 min drive, served by BA; Malaga is 2 hours away served by Easyjet, BA. A hire car is a good idea to make the most of the local towns and beaches, suppliers include Auriga Crown and Niza. Parking is available just 50 yards from the house.

Distances:

The house is positioned in the popular old town and is the perfect base for exploring all the town's tourist attractions on foot, including the church and castle.
