La Casa del Califa: Vejer de la Frontera, 2 nights
Type: Three-Star Hotel

Description: The Hotel La Casa del Califa is made up of the union of eight different houses dating in ages from the 10th/11th century through to a complete contemporary rebuild of a 17th century property. The site has always been strategic for many reasons; it overlooks the principal medieval access to the town; the properties face the Plaza de España, Vejer’s largest flat open space ideal for markets & cultural events; the house is very close to Vejer’s principal gateway (Arco de la Villa). The original road into Vejer (its origins may be Roman or even Phoenecian) arrives at the foot of the Casa del Juzgado (the local popular name for what is now the principal façade of the hotel). Staying at the Califa is like staying at a large private house with multiple levels, corridors & courtyards dividing up the eight houses that make up the hotel of varying ages & architectural styles. There is a degree of intimacy in whichever part of the hotel you are staying in.
