V Boutique Hotel
- Style Very Moorish
- Setting Hilltop pueblo blanco
Situated in the beautiful hilltop village of Vejer de la Frontera, from which you can enjoy amazing views of the surrounding countryside and windswept beaches – as well as the Moroccan skyline across the water – V Boutique Hotel is a stunning, 17th-century mansion with tajine-loads of Moorish charm. With just 12 rooms, it makes the ideal intimate place to escape back to after days of sunbathing and kite-surfing on the nearby Costa de la Luz. And, as its airy rooms are decorated in a riot of colour schemes, and furnished with an idiosyncratic mix of modern and antique furniture, you’ll never siesta anywhere more captivating.

In the know
- Our favourite rooms All rooms at V Boutique Hotel are beautiful – so there’s no need to worry about being stuck with the chamber that no one wants. Our absolute favourites, though, are rooms 10 and 11. The former, the only room with a terrace, has wonderful views over the hills and down to the ocean, while the latter has high ceilings and a mezzanine level that acts as the ideal sitting area. Its enormous windows and well-chosen antique furniture are real selling points, too.
- Packing tips Take a surfer-style hoodie to protect you from the levante winds that occasionally sweep down from the north. And make sure you pack a parasol or two – many of the beaches in the area are completely unspoilt, and devoid of sunbed hire.
Food and drink at V Boutique Hotel
- Hotel restaurant The hotel has no restaurant, and only breakfast is available (although tapas and salads are sometimes available on request).

- Last orders The honesty bars get locked at 11pm.
- Room service Tapas is available between 7am and 11pm.
- Hotel bar There is no bar as such, though guests often congregate on sofas in the cosy saloon, where they can get drinks from an honesty bar and relax to a soft jazz and lounge soundtrack.
