Travel time to Vejer de la Fronteraq
Can someone please tell me the best (quickest and most direct) way to get to Vejer from Seville?
Would it be best to take a direct bus to Vejer from Seville? Or would it be better to take the train to Cadiz and then bus to Vejer?
How long do these options take and how much are they? I've looked everywhere on the net but all I can find is bus/train timetables but no journey times or prices.
Thanks in advance for your help,

I have just read that you have to catch the bus from the station del Prado in Seville. Stop in Barca de Vejer. After catch another bus to Vejer.
Otherwise go to Cadiz and once you have arrived there, catch a bus.
Travel Tips for Vejer de la Frontera
Our route in southwestern Spain
We had been in Spain for 13 days and had already covered most of the 'orange' roads on this map (Sue's sister had joined us from England for 9 days of that time) when the two of us finally woke up to a rainy morning in Nerja, on the Mediterranean coast. The weather forecast did not look good for the next few days so, knowing that the good weather would be arriving from the west and wanting a proper look at Spain's Atlantic coast anyway, we headed for Tarifa on the morning of Dec. 28th. We arrived there in late afternoon and the weather was wild, but already looking better than Nerja's! We managed to find a place for the night (that did not work out too well) and next morning headed up the coast to do some exploring. We stopped at the Roman ruins of Baelo Claudia, but it was closed on a Monday - so we then continued onward up the coast until we reached pretty little Vejer de la Frontera. After finding very nice accommodations there, that afternoon and the next morning was spent exploring both Cape Trafalgar and Vejer itself before heading back down the coast toward Tarifa. With Baelo Claudia being open on a Tuesday, we had a very enjoyable self-guided tour of the diggings and restorations before landing back in Tarifa for one more night. The next morning was Dec. 31st with New Years Eve 2009 rapidly approaching and us still with nowhere to stay. Now that the weather had improved, we decided to play it safe and headed back up the Mediterranean coast to Torremolinos (just outside Malaga) to see if one of our first accommodation spots would take pity on us!
I just love the little narrow cobbled streets with no noise pollution from cars!!! You can't spend hours just getting lost here.
There are some great and cheap places to stay as well as lots of nice restaurants. If you want a place to relax then this is the place for you. It is also just 12 km from the beach so what more can you want!
Great base for touring costa del Luz
Ideal ocation if you want to stay inan authentic spanish white town with a good selection of tapas bars and resturants, but small enough to chill. Close to some great beaches which are good for Surfing and wind surfing (El Palmar and Cabo de trafalgar). Stunning views. Look forprivate lets for great deals on oldy style apartments. Although a tourist destination this town feel miles away from the souless new developments being constructed on the coast. Eating breakfast on the roof terrace of the cosy litlle apartment we had for a few days.
Vejer's sister town is Chefchaouen in morocco. This is by no mistake as in fact Chaouen was based upon Vejer. When the Moors retreated back to Morocco they built Chaouen in Vejer's image. I believe there is a love story attached to it as well.
I think the founder of Chaouen A Sidi Ali Ben Rashid was sperated from his wife Zhora who stayed n Vejer, so Rashid built Chaouen not only after Vejer but after his estranged wife too.
Smells of spring
If you visit the village in spring, you will be welcomed by the scent of jasmin from hundreds of orange blossoms in the main streets of Vejer.
If you have been to Sevilla in Spring, you will know what I am talking about...
