Hotel La Botica de Vejer

Situated within the old walled town of Vejer de la Frontera La Botica owes its name to the fact that it was the village chemists from the end of the 19th century till the late 1930's. It is a 19th century family house that has been restored and re-designed to become a modern house-hotel to satisfy the needs of the modern traveller. Decoration has been kept deliberately simple so that it takes nothing away from the special village atmosphere and the wonderful views.

Vejer is a typically Andalucian white hilltop village that overlooks countryside and is only 10 minutes drive from the beaches near Cape Trafalgar. For a lazy afternoon in the all-year-round sun, guests can relax on the roof-top terrace and enjoy the striking views out over Vejer and the country beyond.

Rooms have been arranged around a stone-flagged patio which serves as a breakfast room in the morning and also as a lounge in the afternoon. All rooms have a full bathroom and there is a choice of patio rooms or outward facing rooms with views, and also a suite with the potential to accomodate up to 4 people.

Nearby fishing villages like Conil, Barbate and Zahara de Los Atunes are famous for their tuna catches, and make an interesting diversion during a day at the coast, especially at lunchtime. The beaches themselves, of course, are ideal for surfers, with Palmar in particular being renowned for the good surf and easy-going lifestyle.

For country-lovers there are footpaths and routes for horse-riding and cycling. The area is also a favourite destination of birdwatchers, with a big colony of birds of prey and many migratory birds passing through. Guests staying at least three nights will be offered a free ornithological guided tour including transport, optical equipment and bird identification guides (subject to availability).

We had a lovely time staying at the above hotel.

Staff were very helpful, room had a panoramic view of the surrounding area, we had kestrels flying past at eye level. A quiet peaceful hotel, sun terrace was a bonus, phew! It was hot up there.

Breakfast was good, plenty of choice, one request however, I would have loved freshly brewed coffee.
Just a quick line to say thanks for your assistance in facilitating our hotel stay at La Botica de Vejer.
Everything worked perfectly, the hotel and staff were a delight, the holiday a success!
No more to add, other than 'thank you' again!
Beautiful small hotel in a beautiful quiet village for people who does like the real relax.
Lovely hotel, splendid views, spotlessly clean and friendly owner. All this plus lovely views and sunshine would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone.
The hotel was lovely, very clean with stunning views of surrounding countryside. Only slight disappointment was breakfast which was very poor and sort of selfservice although no one quite knew what to do until told by the staff member on duty or another guest. This only happened on first day of course. Well worth a visit.

"Great hotel. Spotless. Stunning views from the roof-top terrace. Got plenty of tips from the reception, like which beach to go and where to eat around Vejer de la Frontera. Good breakfast and beautiful music in the morning. Simple and quiet would be the resume. Beautifully restored house with a lot of personal touches and great breakfasts del dia."


"La Botica is new, clean, relaxing with stunning views in the heart of Vejer. The rooms are spacious, traditional yet modern, light and functional. Just love the place and love the town."

A Word From the Owner

"Vejer was once a favourite retreat of Spanish Naval Officers. Today it is still a traditional Andalusian village yet with a cosmopolitan touch which has made it a favoured escape from the stress of big cities."
