Logo La casa del Califa

Welcome to Vejer’s No.1 hotel, which since its founding in 2001 has become a favourite place to stay in Andalucia for travellers and Spaniards alike.  The Califa’s origins date back to the 10th century, with the building sitting in the heart of Vejer in the palm filled Plaza de España. The Califa offers views across the marshes, forests, and hills of the Atlantic coast. Offering a wide range of rooms, from simple doubles to luxurious suites, the Califa caters to guests of all tastes. The rooms are spread out among interwoven buildings linked by staircases and courtyards, with a characteristic Andalucian patio garden at its heart. 

Our breakfast, served in the palm filled garden, is healthy and varied using local produce prepared daily.

Convenient private covered parking is located just 80m. from the hotel.






Staying at the Califa is like staying at a large private house with multiple levels, corridors & courtyards dividing up the 10 houses that make up the hotel of varying ages & architectural styles.
