The
Experience

The road snakes between the hills of Vejer and Abejaruco, then you climb a steep and windy track for a thrilling adventure. You arrive to a gleaming modern, John Pawson inspired house surrounded by birdsong and semi-wild land – you’ll not want to leave! Inside is a 60 sq.m open space in which living room and kitchen blend seamlessly, huge glass doors frame the garden, sleek sofas ask to be lounged on, straw sunhats decorate a wall, and all is white, white, white. Bedrooms lie in each wing of the ‘H’-shaped structure: at one end, two twin rooms; at the other, a master bedroom. Bathrooms are large, marbled and spoiling. All feels generous, spacious, crisply modern, with ceilings forming steep sloping triangles. Outside are wild olive trees, almonds and figs, a terrace surrounded by herbs and small pomegranates in pots, and a vegetable garden in the lower field – pick your own peppers, tomatoes, oranges, lemons. Or visit Vejer with its shops, market and delectable tapas. The caretaker and his wife who farm nearby take good care of house, garden and pool.

Reviews

We loved every minute of our stay at Valdesa from the moment we turned into the drive. It is a very special house, beautifully designed and cared for by its owners. It was very clean, modern and comfortable with everything we needed Enrique supplied us with fresh fruit and vegetables and we picked lemons from the garden. We walked every day enjoying the peace, fresh air and wonderful views. We relaxed completely - beautiful area, beaches, great food at local restaurant and delicious tapas at Vejer de la Frontera . Andrew was very helpful we are already planning our return visit.

An amazing time had by all...blissful villa, so full of character, wonderful energy, views incredible, fruits and veg on your doorstep delivered by Enrique. Starry, starry nights and the quietest place we've ever slept. Surrounding areas incredible, something for everybody in the family and soooo unspoilt! Beaches for miles, hilltop villages, food to die for and such friendly people. We are coming back! Don't be put off by the bumpy track up to the villa! It's worth it!! Andrew so helpful. Almost don't want any of you to know this!! Writing with reluctance!

Amanda, Jersey

THE panacea for your mind, body and soul. There really are not enough words to describe how relaxing our time spent at La Valdesa was. It was love at first sight. It is the most perfect place to base yourself if you want to explore this beautiful and historic region (by foot, horse, car or boat), swim in the warm waters, or watch the huge diversity of species of migrating birds, whilst sipping on your gin and tonic made with one of the freshly picked lemons from the garden and to lie back after a busy day at the beach just to enjoy the peace and quiet of the villa and its beautiful setting.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Andrew Platt

  • The closest beach (15 mins) is an absolute cracker (Zahora, near Cape Trafalgar), but it is mile upon mile of unspoilt sandy beaches from Cadiz down to Tarifa, many of them excellent for surfing.
  • 10 mins to the hilltop village of Vejer (fabulous restaurants, bars, galleries, jazz, and flamenco); 40 mins to Cadiz (history, and Carnival in February); 1 hour to Jerez (bodegas and Spring Fair in May); and 30 minutes to Tarifa (and the boat to Tangiers)
  • Watch the whales in the Strait (trips from Barbate and Tarifa) or take a private boat to watch the Almadraba (capture of the tuna).
  • Stunning birdwatching on what is one of Europe's main migratory routes. Just bring your binoculars and start walking, or we can put you in touch with a guide. Eagles, harriers, vultures, little bustards, black-shouldered kites, hoopoes, bea-eaters, etc.. .
  • Walks and bikerides galore (right from your doorstep). Take the path down to the Roman aqueduct (still in use), or to the natural spring to fill your bottles, and all this through oak, olive, and orange trees.
  • Take an evening horse ride through the pine forest, canter in the surf, drink a cold fino at the beach bar, and back to the stables before lights-out....what better way to finish the day!
