really lovely house with great roof terrace. Fantastic views of the mountains and you can see the sea and Moroccan coast. At night we watched the lights of Tangier in the distance. Lovely and cool on a hot summers evening. House is very nicely furnished and equipped. Owners have thought of everything, even buckets and spades for the kids on the beach!
only accommodation in Vejer that has a communal pool is on La Noria.
To be honest I haven't stayed here though I have eaten in the restaurant and had tea in the Arabic tea room and my friends have stayed here.
This is a two star hotel but looks like it could have more. The prices are great for what you get in this incredible Arabic like building full of nooks and crannies and stairs leading here, there and everywhere!
Double rooms range from 76 to 110€ in high season
Single rooms are 5€ in high season and suite will cost you 127€
7% VAT is not included in the prices. These figures were taken from the 2007 price list.
The views are nice as you can see a fair bit of Vejer and the surrounding area, but what tops it off for me is that oh so inviting swimming pool as Vejer is on top of a large hill and gets VERY hot in summer. The nearest beach (El Palmar) is 12km away.
This place certainly has a romantic feel in the air. I think Vejer is romantic itself but to be in Vejer and stay here has to be the best!
I remember the food in the restaurant being wonderful too.
We had an amazing stay at El Cobijo. Fortunately we arrived unannounced and there was still room. Boy were we lucky!
Upon checking in, the owner graciously offered us local wine and cheese to enoy in the main patio.
Our room was nothing short of delightful and charming. We stayed in the room named "Setenil". Great decor and feel.
Our breakfast had to be one of the best breakfasts I've ever had. We met in the main dining area (enough to maybe feed 8-10 people) and all of the food was fresh and local. Cheeses, breads, pates, juices, coffee... all being served by the owner. Although he spoke no English, we were able to speak through my broken Spanish. He told us that all of the goat cheese came from the goats just down the hill.
We HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone coming to the area... simply beautiful, unique and relaxing.
Here's the website for anyone curious:
The architecture is that of most of the pueblos in that part of Spain. Very Moroccan in feel... Beautiful views of Vejer and the valleys below.
Incredible. Take the Orange Room. The hotel overlooks the valley and straddles the outer fringes of this walled city. It is also nicely situated at Plaza Espana, which is within the old walled moorish district. The streets are wonderfully twisted and dotted with tiny cafes and shops everywhere.
Inside the hotel you can find many common areas where you can sit and enjoy the peace and quietness of the place. Many cushions give the place a certain moorish style, like 1001 nights tales...
We went there after lunch, and SIESTA there was a big big temptation. But we were not hotel clients, so we really didn't dare... maybe we should have!
This lovely little hotel has got a nice solarium on top, with a little terrace from where you can enjoy superb views of the valley below and even the beaches of Barbate.
On clear days you can see Africa on the background.
I really didn't sleep here, just went for a quick visit after having lunch in the nearby "Jardin del Califa" restaurant. I saw the common areas and they seemed really nice and agreable.
The place is brand new, so everything is just made.
But is small, so make reservations in advance!
My favorite accomodation is www.bancotel.com you get bonus to stay in diferent hotels (3,4 starts) for only 50 euros the double room per night, great value and quality!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
