Countryside paradise with new pool (2018), close to great beaches and old towns

Bedrooms 5
Space 2,486 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 4 - 7 nights


About the property

Refurbished old house with 4 bedrooms, 3 baths and optional guest house (+4)

This is an unusual property as it's a combination of a number of different parts; the main refurbished house made from reclaimed materials and antique finds, the adjoining old converted barn housing a stunning master suite, and then further away from the main house there is a self contained casita with king sized sofa bed and 3 bunk beds for that extra family to visit or stay.


This property is the result of 3 years hard work on restoring and improving various old buildings that were on the 15,000 m2 (3 acre) plot. In the main house there are 2 master rooms both with fantastic super king sized beds - one in the thatched barn with en suite and another in the main building (also with en suite) and stunning views of Vejer. There's a large bunk bed room with 4 beds that are also built for adults (90cm x 200cm long mattress size) and then a separate twin bed room which can also be adjoined to make up another super king if required. There's a large family bathroom as well with twin sinks, large tadelakt bath with shower and then a huge open plan living area with modern marble kitchen, dining area and lounge section with open fire place and stunning views.

The plot sits on a very quiet back road with very few passing cars - more likely to find a horse or dog walker taking a stroll or the local farmer moving his cows. The whole of the plot also benefits from fantastic views of the countryside and gazes up at the old town of Vejer which can be seen from many angles and windows, including one of the master bedrooms.

This is designed as a family friendly rental as the owners have young children themselves and will leave a variety of toys and games for young kids to play with. There is also a rescued old fishing boat on the plot for anyone to play in as well as a set of swings, a small rustic football pitch, ping pong table, and more things to come in time.

The main house (including the barn) will very comfortably accommodate 8-10 (10 if the 4 bunk beds are all full) and the large open plan living space has a huge dining table for up to 14 people and large new kitchen with 2 ovens, 2 dishwashers, large gas hob, microwave and all the usual mod cons you would expect to find in a luxury rental. There's a new washer/dryer and large fridge and separate freezer to cater for family living in the countryside.

The casita is 50 metres from the main house and can be rented separately or together with the main house. This is also newly refurbished with reclaimed materials and contains an open plan kitchen / living / dining area with oven, microwave and dishwasher.

We also give customers the option to block the rental of the casita for a small fee if they don't need the extra rooms but wish to have the plot and facilities just to themselves though there's lots of room and privacy between the two.

The house is very close to the Montenmedio golf and equestrian centre so an ideal place to stay for anyone visiting the sunshine tour events or wanting close proximity to the country club for golf or events there.

As the pictures probably show, the house is recently completed and works do continue on the grounds at present with more trees and plants being added all the time - we'll try and update the photos regularly to show the continual progress and a NEW SWIMMING POOL is being added in 2018, ready for June. Please ask if you have any questions

About Wim

English family with 2 young kids who lived in the area for a year and fell in love with the stunning location of the plot of land and the views up to Vejer which we never tire of.

Wim purchased this house in 2014

Why Wim chose Barbate

Location is amazing and it's totally protected from the infamous levante winds that visit from time to time which means we can still enjoy the sunshine and the region whatever the weather. Also a great spot for nature lovers, particularly for birds as we have our local storks, owls, kingfishers, kestrels and swallows plus many others we don't yet know the names of.

What makes this house unique

Lots of land to explore and play in. Very tranquil spot and a great retreat to return to from exploring the many many fantastic beaches, excellent reasonably priced restaurants and lovely old towns.

Countryside paradise with new pool (2018), close to great beaches and old towns
average rating of 5.0 based on 6 reviews

Stylish, well equipped villa in peaceful location - easy access to beaches, 'white-towns' etc.

  • 5 of 5

This place is a real find. As a family of five with three teenage boys we found it spacious and comfortable and so easy to relax in. A great 'living space' is enhanced by folding doors opening onto a broad patio with views across to the gorgeous hilltop town of Vejer. This small town is not to be missed in itself - a charming, laid back town with a wide selection of restaurants, bars, shops and culture. Then there are the beaches, which are in such easy reach; El Palmar is an easy 15 minute drive and a long expanse of golden sand with opportunities for surfing lessons or just basking in the sunshine - then walk off the beach to numerous cafes and bars.

A bit further afield there are equally beautiful stretches of sand at Zahara de los Atunes or Bolonia. (We loved the beaches so much that we didn't even bother to use the pool at this property).

45 minutes drive away is Tarifa where you can take a ferry and be in Tangier, Morocca within an hour or book a trip on a whale-watching tour and see orcas (killer whales) amongst the small tuna fishing boats. Cadiz and Gibraltar are also easy day trips from here.

Our welcome at the property by Wim was great - with useful local advice on a range of things and we had no problems with any of the facilities at the property itself. All in all a wonderful spot for a holiday!

Wonderful house in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic week in the main house. We flew into Gibraltar and a straight forward drive for 1 hour 20 brings you this this stunning property. On arrival we were struck by the size of the house and the plot on which it sits. Spotlessly clean, the house has great cooking/eating & relaxing space. Our party was 4 adults & 4 kids – plenty of room for all. We were lucky enough to sleep in the stunning barn – a huge room with great views across the valley. The outside space is as impressive as the inside. A large terrace area allows you to dine outside as well as room to relax. There is also plenty of space for children to run around and let off steam.

The picturesque town of Vejer de la Frontera is only 5 mins away. It is on a hilltop giving beautiful views for miles. Lovely to walk around and even better to eat in - it has some great restaurants. It also has a well-stocked supermarket. We also visited Cadiz which is 50 mins away - particular interests were the cathedral, fish market and maze of narrow streets.

The highlight of the holiday for us was the wonderful beaches in the area. We visited a new beach every day and did not see them all. The beaches were clean and safe for the kids to swim & board in. Our favourite was Bolonia. Lovely white sand beach with clear water and a huge sand dune offering amazing views.

We would definitely recommend this property & this area of Spain to friends.

Beautifully Apppointed Inspiring Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

We were lucky enough to go with a group of friends and spent time in both the Casita and the main house. Our family of four stayed in the Casita for four nights and had plenty of room tucked away in a tranquil setting. The Casita is beautifully furnished in the local style with lots of attention to detail and spotlessly clean. In the main finca the theme is continued on a grader scale and we found if perfect for a social crowd with a huge dining table, double ovens etc. There is lots of outside space which gives kids freedom to roam safely and the terrace offers a great view across to the local town.

It proved an excellent base for exploring the myriad local and excellent) beaches and everywhere we went to eat we dined like Kings.

The local golf course is very good with the staff friendly and helpful.

We flew to Seville and hired a car and the Finca is easy to find if you follow the excellent directions provided. The Hosts were amazing, couldn't do enough for you to get you set up and the whole transaction side of things turned out to be a breeze. I rarely write reviews but I would highly recommend a stay here and we plan to go back.

beautiful relaxed hideaway fit for a King

  • 5 of 5

Just a finished a very relaxing stay in the Casita which I would highly recommend. Friendly and welcoming host who was extremely easy to deal with during the booking process. This is a personally designed family house and it is clear a huge amount of thought and care has gone in to its construction. Very spacious and airy and perfect for chilling out with family (including garden) and friends and with plenty to do in the surrounding area especially if you like beach and golf. Would come again.

Tranquil and lovely Casita in a beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Casita and had a fantastic time. The property looks great with concrete floors, huge windows, an open plan kitchen/living area, and a nice bathroom. However it is the outside area that really hits the mark with a great BBQ, a large terrace, lovely flowers, and a top view over a wide plain.

There is loads to do in the area. We visited Vejer (a lovely old town in the hills), Tarifa for some kitesurfing, some great beaches, and Cadiz, (a great town). You can either see the sites, or just relax in the sun on the terrace!

The food is excellent, with a wide variety of places to suite any budget. We were well looked after with clear directions and the property was very clean and well maintained. We will be back again! Enjoy!!

Tastefull and well equipped house

  • 5 of 5

I felt more than at home, very nicely renovated house more equipped than our own place. 20 minutes to the beaches and 10 min away from eh charming Vejer. Wim is an outstanding host and we appreciated the noce bottle of wine when we arrived. If I have to say something negative...the moskitos and the flees...otherwise perfect....

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your lovely review! It is indeed a lovely place. So glad you've enjoyed the house and its luxury. You were indeed unlucky with the flies the last days. After you've gone I've learned that it was the big farmland close to the house that had been fertilised. Just a few days later they all seemed to have disappeared. But glad to hear it was just a minor issue. Hope to see you and your family and friends back soon!
