Casa La Siesta

Near Vejer de la Frontera, Spain

A funky bolthole close to Vejer and the beach, with shabby-chic guestrooms, the warmest of welcomes and a self-catering casita for 2-4

It was our honour to be the first-ever visitors to Casa La Siesta, in late 2008. After homing in on the house from over a mile away - it stands proud on a hilltop looking out towards the ocean - we were greeted with infectious enthusiasm by Lee and Amelia. They were just putting the finishing touches to their delectable small hotel, and our initial surprise at how young they were soon gave way to admiration for what they've created: a relaxed home where rustic Andalucian cortijo style meets bare but immensely comfortable, urbane chic.

When faced with rebuilding the original farmhouse, their mission statement was sustainability and many of the building's base elements - tiles, beams, doors and windows - were recycled from older houses. But, that aside, Casa La Siesta is a celebration of contemporary creature comforts. Expect a room-to-remember, an easy one-tribe-vibe, delicious and traditional food, and masses of communal living space. And the twin cherries on your Siesta cake? You're a shake away from one of Andalucia's most beautiful towns and close to some of its best beaches.

Highs

  • Holidays are all about R&R and this place seems made for both
  • The food and wines are both in the 'extra special' league
  • Seven funky rooms, which stylishly fuse ethno and boho, plus a super-private self-catering Casita
  • The owners are incredibly generous and will go above and beyond the call of duty
  • A big pool, big views and a big heart

Lows

  • Don't expect much action in the tiny hamlet of Los Parallejos: for that, you'll need to slip into Vejer
  • Being so small, it books up quickly; plan your trip well in advance
  • This is a small hotel so if you enjoy the anonymity of a larger place, it might not suit you
  • We are yet to see the Casita, but it sounds ideal for a more independent trip

A beautiful country retreat...
