The VIVIR by V… experience provides total relaxation and tranquillity for guests from the moment they arrive. As you step into the beautifully restored 17th century manor house, you’ll be greeted and guided to your private room. Surrounded in a serene and soothing atmosphere, your wellness journey begins.

Hotel V… is located in the historic town of Vejer de la Frontera, in the Spanish province of Cadiz. Open since February 2008, this charming boutique property is owned and designed by Jean van Gysel, a Belgian born hotelier. Mr. van Gysel wanted to create a hotel with timeless allure and understated sophistication that would maintain the historic authenticity of Vejer’s rich history.

Every aspect of the restoration and decoration of Hotel V... has been overseen by the owner himself. His sophisticated sense of style is evident as soon as you step through the dramatic ebony and glass front doors to enter the remarkable 16th century courtyard with its majestic stone columns. Interiors throughout V… have polished concrete floors, Venetian stucco walls and are filled with unique antiques collected from around the globe that have been carefully chosen to bring warmth and individual character to each room.

Each of the 18 rooms is decorated with calming neutral colours and offer a relaxing and peaceful ambiance with extra-large beds and antique Portuguese furniture. The hotel offers a choice of Classic Rooms, Superior Rooms and one Exclusive room with a private terrace; each room is totally unique and all offer an environment of pure relaxation and comfort.

The rooftop terrace with its panoramic 360-degree view is the ultimate spot to wind down with a glass of chilled Cava or to soak in the Jacuzzi as the sun sets magnificently over the Atlantic Ocean.

Each of the three wellness programs are designed to improve your overall health through a series of guided fitness activities, meditation and nutritious meals prepared by the chef.

The professional well-being guides will teach you new workout techniques to start you on a long term fitness plan. They will be offering encouragement and guidance to help you reach your health goals. You’ll learn how to increase stamina and also regain control of your physical health. You’ll feel refreshed, renewed and relaxed. Each of the VIVIR by V… sessions is designed to motivate you and encourage positive change.

VIVIR by V… fitness programs includes a variety of activities to improve balance, strength and flexibility. Scheduled daily actives include yoga, meditation, body toning, hiking excursions and massages.

Hiking: The VIVIR wellness program offers daily guided hiking excursions through the magnificent and varied Andalusian countryside. What better way to recharge your physical and mental health than by connecting with nature? Balance your heart, soul and spirit while experiencing views of Africa and Cape Trafalgar, breathing in the aromas of pine forests or listening to the sounds of waves breaking on the Andalusian cliffs.

Body toning: The key to a balanced wellness lifestyle is to add stretching and muscle contouring alongside cardio & aerobic exercise. Daily afternoon stretching and muscle toning sessions work in perfect harmony with the cardio benefits from morning hikes. Toning your body doesn’t just improve your overall appearance but can help your posture, improve your strength and energy, giving you more confidence and by bolstering your body's immune system can even help fight off viruses.

Yoga: Guests will be guided through morning and afternoon Slow Flow Yoga or Vinyasa yoga/meditation sessions by an expert yoga instructor whose knowledge, experience and techniques will help guests focus on their energy centers, helping them feel more balanced physically, energetically and emotionally.

Massages: VIVIR offers daily massages so guests can absorb the peaceful energy of this special place and feel rested, rejuvenated and centered.

We love this

  • Small scale retreat with lots of personal attention!
  • Beautiful historic atmosphere
  • In the middle of a charming Andalusian village with shops and bars

This not so much...

  • Groups are small, it could happen that you are the only guest, but in that case you will have 100% personal attention!

Our tips

  • Vejer de la Frontera offers travellers a unique travel experience. One of the most beautiful things to do while visiting Vejer de la Frontera is to take in the breath taking views of this hilltop town. The whitewashed buildings set a picturesque backdrop to an ancient city. Stroll along cobblestone streets to visit local monuments and historic landmarks. You’ll also find a town square with shops and restaurants featuring local fare and delicacies.
