An introduction to Siete Balcones y un Patio

How would you describe Siete Balcones in a nutshell?

Siete Balcones is a small rental with individual rooms and apartments in the historic quarter of Vejer de la Frontera, Andalucia. There’s an expression in Spanish — estar a tus anchas — which means to be completely at ease and to have free rein of the place. That’s the feeling we want to give people, that they’re in their own house. Every detail is taken care of.

What was your inspiration to open Siete Balcones in Andalucia?

We were living in Madrid for many years and came to visit the village 15 years ago and fell in love with it and this area of Andalucia. We’ve always had the desire to open a small rental, opening up our house to people. We’re also ceramic artists, so we can combine that with our ceramic workshop as well.

What’s the history of the house?

The house was built around the end of the 18th century after the earthquake which affected a number of houses in the Medieval quarter. Before it became a Bed and Breakfast, it was the village schoolteacher’s house for many years and there are people our age who remember playing in the courtyard as children.

When we came to see the house, it had been neglected for a long time, and we had to pretty much redo the entire roof and a lot of the walls on the first floor. It took us almost two years to renovate it. We would shop at reclaimed material yards to find the same kind of materials that were traditionally used in the house, trying to respect the original essence.

What’s been the biggest reward to you since opening Siete Balcones?

The actual renovation work was a long haul, but just seeing people enjoying the house takes away the pain of it all. And meeting all the people and learning more about their culture, that’s been the most rewarding thing for us really.

Siete Balcones y un Patio rooms & rates

Rooms 1, 2 & 3 have kitchenettes where you can prepare your breakfast and other simple meals. The Apartment has a fully equipped kitchen which when booked together with rooms 3 and 4 can be shared by all 3 rooms. When booked alone Room 4 has access to upstairs coffee and tea-making facilities.

As for the rooms, I’m very keen on Room 3. It’s a very light room on the first floor. Rooms 1 and 3 are the largest rooms and are in high demand. They even have their own sitting area. All of the rooms are slightly different in the sense that the ground floor rooms have a more traditional feel to them and the first floor is slightly more modern.

In terms of the interior design, we have a great passion for mid-century modern furniture, and in our travels we’ve been picking up different pieces. We restored a lot of the furniture as well as putting a lot of our own hand-crafted ceramics into the house. The tiles, basins and the lamps were all done by us, as were the plates, bowls and the like.

It was important to us to respect the original feeling of the house, but we’ve introduced some more contemporary elements at Siete Balcones such as a modern staircase leading up to the roof which complement the old.

Siete Balcones feels like a home, but we try to keep to the standards of a good hotel in the way we prepare things. Guests focus a lot on the little details we provide.

It’s a great place for busy people to unwind and disconnect. There’s no traffic. There’s only a pedestrian road outside the house so it’s very quiet.

When guests arrive, we give them a warm welcome and make sure they have everything they need. We really just let them enjoy the house, as if we are almost handing it over to them. We don’t fuss over them but are always there if they need us.

The closest beach to Siete Balcones is El Palmar beach which is a 15-minute drive away. It’s a long sandy beach with dunes. There’s a lot of surfing there. Other beaches not too far away are Conil, Zahora, and los Canos de Meca. The beach in Bolonia has Roman ruins and a really big sand dune. It’s really quite wild and beautiful.

There are a lot of activities like surfing, wind surfing, kite surfing, horseback riding, and paragliding, as well as spas, golfing, or Spanish-language schools — there is lots to do.

From our rooftop terrace you can see the Alcornocales National Park. There are all sorts of trekking routes and birdwatching there. Cádiz, Tarifa, and Jerez are all nice day trips.

However, the highlight here is the Andalusian food. We have a lot of suggestions for favorite restaurants.

The location of Siete Balcones y un Patio

Siete Balcones is in the heart of the historic quarter of Vejer de la Frontera on a small cobblestone street. It’s really one of the most beautiful villages in Andalucia.

This area is quite unspoiled and the village is very well preserved. It draws visitors from all over Europe and the world, but it doesn’t have that touristy feeling. It’s an ideal place, really.

There’s a great mix of creative people in this part of Andalucia, artists as well as chefs, who have added something positive to the place. There are some really great restaurants. Vejer de la Frontera is a bit of a gourmet village.

When is the best time to visit Andalucia?

I really recommend people visit Andalucia in the spring because the area is so green and full of flowers. It’s just beautiful at that time of year. It’s great for bike riding and trekking because it doesn’t get too hot. The tapas festival is held in May too.

From mid-June until mid-July can be a great time to come because it’s perfect beach weather and there aren’t so many people. September to mid-October has fantastic weather too and it’s slightly quieter. August as often is the busiest month.
