Where you’ll be

Los Caños de Meca, Andalucía, Spain

In 1969, when we discovered Cape Trafalgar, Los Canos consisted of only a few houses, summer residences of the inhabitants of Vejer, illuminated with an oil lamp, supplied with water (still today) by wells, gathered along Trafalgar Avenue around a single "venta": the Trafalgar Bar...
Today, more than 200 villas and shops are busy in Los Canos day or night.
However, beyond the old "Cartel" of the Civil Guard and eastward until the entrance to the Forest Reserve of La Brena, the properties are larger, the shops rarer.
This is where the oldest houses, the finest restaurants, the busiest bars, the most luxurious hotels are located. It is also where the beaches are the most beautiful, the most intimate, the best protected from the wind, from west to east: the beach of Captain Lucas, the beach of Castillejos, the beach of the hotel Mar de Frente and, particularity of Los Canos, the beach of nudists.
Captain Lucas (cf. Wikipedia to discover this character...) is located close to the access to the pine forest of the Brena Natural Park.
It's just a stone's throw from two of the best restaurants in the area : La Brena, Michelin City and Los Castillejos by our friend Imma.
You can also recommend us at the Restaurant Las Acacias, after crossing the road of Lighthouse or Venta Curro, behind Camping Zahora.
In Barbados, I highly recommend Club Pescadero El Atun, Calle Ancha 39.
To welcome your passing friends, Hotel Frente al Mar, probably the best hotel in Los Canos and undoubtedly the best location, is 20 metres away, as is the famous La pequena lulu bar.
Captain Lucas dominates the beach.
It is accessed by a staircase located immediately east of the property. 20 meters further, another stairway leads to the nudist beach.

Véronique and I discovered Los Canos de Meca in August 1969 by the only existing and dead-end road from Vejer.
There were barely 30 houses.
There was no electricity and there was no one on the beach.
We rented half of the house below what will become Captain Lucas. When it was put up for sale, we acquired it in 1972 and since then it has been our summer holiday home for us and for our many Spanish and French friends.
We did very important work in 1975 to secure the house on the cliff and in 2015-2016 to improve its comfort and beauty.
At Captain Lucas, we read, we swim, we garden and we do our best.
When Poniente blows, I launch my large white kite that stays in the air all day…
Since 2020, we have decided to partner with AIRBNB to offer it for rent.
A house, especially very exposed to bad weather as it is ours, needs to be occupied to live and even to survive.
Its maintenance is very expensive and now we are retired...
And that's why, when we don't occupy it ourselves, we offer our house for rent.
