About Carin Rempe

I was born in Holland, during my childhood i often spent my whole summers in Conil de la Frontera, Cadiz, since a friend of my mother lived there. Holidays seemed endless back then, and I really enjoyed being in southern Spain. Then, as a teenager, I met my now husband... We have been living in Sevilla together, then 10 years in Holland again, and finally we bought our finca and started our new life here...

Carin Rempe purchased this cottage in 1999

Why Carin Rempe chose Vejer de la Frontera

The surroundings are so beautiful, it´s pure nature, and aboveboard, nothing to do with our lifestyle in Holland.

We live away from it all, but on the other hand, everything is so close, you can easily visit a lot of different towns and cities, each of them with their unique delights. But when you get back, entering the gate, you smell the garden , the pine trees and enjoy a soft blowing wind and you feel like you can be yourself..

What makes this cottage unique

100% Nature, being taken care of by us, silence, caring animals, beautiful views, quiet, just how life should be!! Be careful though; several guests keep repeating year after year....

Something in the air here (or maybe the water??) is contagious.. ;-)

Casa Encina is a new house, but the ambiance is of an old farmhouse, windows and doors are all of wood. It has been furnished in Moorish style. There are communal sun beds at the pool, however we feel everybody should respect the intimacy of the pool. So each house has its sun chairs there. We, ( the owners of the Finca) are gay-friendly.. This applies to our 4 rentalhouses...


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

Just gorgeously relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We were at la Hijuela for the third time and when we arrived we felt at home immediately. The owners Carin and Carlos make sure that nothing is left to be desired when you arrive. The finca itself is such a beauty - like a little paradise where you can recharge your batteries. We will certainly be back!

P.S. La Muela itself doesn't offer many restaurants if you don't want to cook but there's one not very far away. It is called Patria and is well worth a visit. Do check there to find fresh Andalusian food served in style and with a view.

A lovely setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in Casa Encina which is within Carin and Carlos' beautiful tranquil garden. The casa was very clean and comfortable with a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and garden. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, whether relaxing on the finca or exploring the local area with its great beaches.

Perfect hideaway. A tranquil paradise. Beautifully landscaped gardens.

  • 5 of 5

The chalet was comfortable and well equipped with charming touches. You are perfectly located to explore local towns and beaches and then return to get away from it all and relax on your terrace or by the pool.

Wunderschönes Haus und Anwesen mit Natur pur!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren Urlaub auf der Finca La Hijuela mehr als genossen und kommen definitiv wieder!

Die Finca ist wunderschön und absolut ruhig gelegen und verspricht Erholung pur. Das Haus ist liebevoll und authentisch eingerichtet mit allem was man braucht (das einzige was wir vermisst haben, war ein Wäscheständer für drinnen, aber auch hier hat uns Carin sofort weitergeholfen). Es gibt die Möglichkeit, frische Eier von Carin's und Carlos Hühnern zu kaufen, was wir einfach nur großartig fanden! Auch unsere kleine Tochter hat die Zeit auf der Finca sehr genossen und fand insbesondere den Kontakt zu den Tieren (Hunde, Katzen, Hühner, Schildkröten), das Trampolin und den wunderschönen Garten toll!

Die Besitzer Carin und Carlos, die auf der Finca wohnen, sind sehr nett und freundlich und gaben uns einige hilfreiche Tipps - danke für die tolle Gastfreundschaft! Trotz, dass vier verschiedene Häuser auf der Finca vermietet werden, hat man ausreichend Privatsphäre und bekommt von den anderen Gästen wenig mit, da die Finca riesig ist.

Von der Finca hat man - ein Mietwagen ist vorausgesetzt - zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, die Umgebung zu erkunden. Wir haben einen Tagesausflug nach Tarifa unternommen - ein sehr nettes kleines Städtchen mit Flair. Die Strände in Conil sind außerdem nur 15 min mit dem Auto entfernt und für Kleinkinder absolut empfehlenswert - unsere Tochter wäre am liebsten in den Ozean gesprungen, aber leider war das Wasser noch zu kalt. Auch wir fanden die kilometerlangen, breiten Sandstrände von Conil wunderschön für ausgiebige Spaziergänge oder zum Sonnenbaden.

Wir planen auf jeden Fall wieder zu kommen und würden die Unterkunft wärmstens weiterempfehlen!!!

Nice cabin at a GREAT spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Cosy house with a bedroom with enough place for our daughter and us. Both the bed and the shower were good! Carin and Carlos are very nice people that give you space but are always there with a good advice or a nice chat.

Nice birds and other nature in the environment, nice beach at El Palmar, Towns of Vejer de la Frontera and Tarifa are very nice.

Finca la Hijuela is the perfect place to combine disconnecting and doing culture.You can find it all within 100 km.!! Ancient Cadiz, Jerez with bodegas and the horse riding school, Seville with its Moorish architecture and Flamenco Tablaos, Tarifa (the ruines of Baelo Claudio), Trafalgar, as also Vejer, and Medina Sidonia are worth a visit. And when temperature keeps rising, there are excellent beaches nearby. More than 15 km of fine sandy beaches, laying just there to be enjoyed by you. Sometimes you can see Morocco. It is easy to do your shopping, on the local fresh-markets and there are enough (super)markets and shopping malls in Conil (10 min.), Vejer (7 min.), and Chiclana. Several good restaurants are nearby, some in real surprising locations. In summer evenings you can assist to the many local ferias. Do not feel like driving, culture, people? In our garden you can submerge yourself in a cool big salt-water pool, (10 x 5 m) and hear the birds sing. Just take a swim and relax. Also available for Yoga retreats..Aks for information.

Other Activities: What about listening the birds sing and have a quiet swim?

Golf: There are several golf courses nearby, the distances are given in a estimated way: Campano Club de Golf at 10 Km .-Golf Novo Sancti Petri at 12 Km .-
