Arriving By Car To Vejer De La Frontera
If you come along the central route (via Madrid) you should take the N-IV to Sevilla and then the motorway (A-4) to Cádiz. Just after Jerez de la Frontera, turn off towards the N-340 and Algeciras. Vejer is just off the N-340, almost equidistant between Cádiz and Algeciras.
If you come along the Mediterranean Coastal route ( via Barcelona and Valencia and Málaga) follow the N-340 (the Autopista del Mediterráneo) until you reach Vejer.
We recommend you park your car at the entrance to the town on La Corredera or use the public parking and walk into the old town. Vejer is an historical old town with several streets only open to residents.
Hiring a car at Gibraltar Airport:
There are plenty of reasonably priced car hire companies to choose from close to Gibraltar Airport. We suggest you walk across the border and hire a car from La Linea (5 minutes easy walk)

Here’s what they have said
All the way from Australia – 3 times so far
Rob G & Phil C, Melbourne, December 2019
We first met Annie at her week long Classic Andalusia course in Vejer in 2017. We have returned twice since, for the Almadraba (unmissable!) in May 2018 and Annie’s Menorca Culinary tour October 2019. Annie’s enthusiasm is infectious and the hospitality is second to none – shared with excellent like-minded company. It’s the gold standard of all the food tours that we have done. We have no doubt that we will be back again.
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.
