Vejer, a few km away from the Strait of Gibraltar, is one of the famous white villages of Andalusia, all characterised by white houses with flowered patios and narrow streets. From the top of the hill on which Vejer is located, you can see the endless beaches of Costa de la Luz and the mountains of northern Africa when the weather is good.
Vejer de la Frontera is undoubtedly an incredible town, both for its history and its nature. The first time you visit it many things will surely surprise you: the narrow streets of the centre, its white houses (that seem to have been designed by a cubist painter), and above all the kindness of its inhabitants are all elements that literally invite you to get lost in the historic centre and then stop at a café with panoramic view over the city to have a nice pint of beer. In Vejer de la Frontera you will discover how many andalusian towns were during the Arab colonization of Spain, thanks to the perfect combination of two cultures. These have originated the peculiar urban structure of the town, characterised by houses with patios that have contributed to the recognition of Vejer as National Heritage in 1978.
The nearest beach is only 8 km away, but Vejer de la Frontera is surrounded by many beaches, some of which are real treasures of fine, gold sand, like el Palmar and Caños de Meca (this last is really popular among tourists). Nearby you will also find reserves and natural parks: el Pinar de Barbate, a pine forest located on a breathtaking cliff; los Alcornocales, and the Strait of Gibraltar Park, all located less than 30 minutes away by car.
Vejer de la Frontera is a real paradise for sport lovers: hiking, cycling, climbing and water sports in general are only some examples of the many activities you can do in this beautiful natural environment, apart from excursions to the beautiful white villages of the surroundings, to Cadiz, Seville, Jerez de la Frontera or also Morocco.
The nearest airport is Jerez de la Frontera, where you can take a taxi (it takes about twenty minutes to get to the bus station – buses stop at La Barca de Vejer). If you prefer to fly to Seville, then you should take a bus or a taxi to El Prado de San Sebastian bus station, where buses to Vejer or la Barca de Vejer leave. Another solution could be Malaga international airport, but this one is located about five hours away from Vejer.
Alternatively, the school can book for you the transfer to and from the airport (in this case, you will have to pay a supplement).
