Why Choose Vejer De La Frontera
For Your Cooking Holiday?

White houses - Vejer de la Frontera
  • It’s breathtakingly beautiful

    Your first glimpse of the town is as a blinding flash of white on a hilltop against the bluest of blue skies. Up close it’s just as easy on the eye, too – a labyrinth of narrow, cobbled streets winding its way between quiet squares, churches and handsome historical buildings, it’s a photographer’s dream.

  • It’s a million miles away from the crowded costas

    An authentic pueblo blanco (white village), it sits slightly inland but with easy access to the cleanest, whitest and most undeveloped beaches in southern Spain.

  • It’s a seriously foodie town

    Gastronomy, quite simply, is in the Vejer DNA. The people take their food very seriously indeed, and from fine dining restaurants to scruffy neighbourhood tapas bars via excellent local butchers, grocers, delis and markets, food is a fundamental part of life here. You’ll visit them all and get to know what, how and why to choose all produce used on the course.

  • It’s blessed with over 300 days of sunshine a year

    Whatever time of year you visit, the sun will almost invariably be shining brightly, and the fabulous year-round local produce is a testament to the wonderful climate.

  • It’s seafood central

    Barbate (the tuna fish capital of Spain) is just up the road, and with the Costa de la Luz opening right out onto the rolling waves of the Atlantic, there’s never any shortage of fresh fish and seafood on the local market stalls.

  • It’s right on the edge of Sherry Country

    As if all the fine food wasn’t enough, one of the world’s great wines is made less than an hour’s drive away between Jerez de la Frontera, Sanlucar de Barrameda and El Puerto de Santa Maria. (You’ll get to know Sherry very well over the course of a holiday – as well as having the option to visit Bodegas, go on tastings, and even stamp your own grapes!)

Annie B’s tour was a perfect blend of food and drink for our group of wine-obsessed Americans/American Sommeliers. Annie is passionate and hilarious, she planned an action packed few days for us focussing on Spanish wine and Sherry, which we wanted to explore, and also the gourmet delights of Cadiz that she is so knowledgeable about. We cooked, dined, shopped, ate like kings, and even took a day trip to Morocco! Already planning a return trip to Vejer. Thank you, Annie.
