My husband Mike and I fell in love with Medina during our first holiday in 2006 and our daughter Michelle shortly after.My parents were Italian from the south and I immediately felt at home with the local Spanish community. Having studied Spanish at 'A' Level standard (many years ago!), it has been easy for me to communicate and even learn the local dialect! We mainly socialise with our Spanish friends and as we all enjoy cooking, spend many evenings dining on our terrace creating Italian/Spanish dishes.For a few years I made and sold Italian sauces at farmers markets.I always bring some jars with me to Medina to share with our friends and you may find one included in your welcome basket! We invite you to relax in our home Sueños (dreams) and dream your own dreams........

Marina purchased this House in 2010
Why Marina chose Medina-Sidonia
The magnificent views and having an upstairs terrace which cannot be overlooked. As the only non Spanish family in our immediate area,we enjoy being part of the community and truly enjoy a complimentary lifestyle to the one we enjoy in the UK where we live in Kent.

Perfect property in perfect location
This was by far the nicest holiday rental property we’ve ever stayed in. It is clearly a much loved house and has been furnished and decorated throughout with care and style and great attention to detail, whilst still being comfortable and with every possible need catered for, including a very well equipped kitchen. Everything was spotlessly clean and all the towels, bed linen etc were of excellent quality. The uninterrupted views from the terraces are amazing and we spent a lot of time working out the names of the towns we could see on the coast (we identified Cadiz from the bridge) and of course watching the beautiful sunsets. As there were only two of us, we especially enjoyed having a bathroom each! The main bedroom is huge and opens onto the upper terrace. It has plenty of hanging space and storage and a very comfortable bed – I have lower back problems but didn’t get a single twinge for the entire stay. The house is in a quiet residential street in the highest part of the town with a quick and easy walk down to the town square (lots of steps) and a more strenuous walk back up! Worth it though and we can recommend the friendly service and good value food at Paco Ortega on the main square. The house is also easy walking distance to the castle ruins and the church, both well worth a visit. Medina Sidonia seems to be a typical Spanish town and is lovely and unspoilt. It’s very well located and within 30-40 minutes you can be in Jerez, Cadiz, Vejer, Arcos and at any number of beautiful beaches. We especially enjoyed the ruins of the Romanian town Baelo Claudia, next to the beach at Bolonia. Marina has supplied a folder with lots of useful information and advice. Marina is a dream to deal with – quick to reply and goes the extra mile to make sure everything is OK and answer any questions. The comments book shows that many guests are regular visitors – we can understand why and hope to return again ourselves in the future.
Many thanks for taking the time to write such a wonderful review. You are delightful to liaise with and looked after our home beautifully.
It has been fun exchanging messages and hopefully one day we will meet.Hope to welcome you again :)
Very best wishes Mike and Marina
Great apartment for great holidays!
Great apartment, clean, confortable, well equipped, with a wonderful view on the nice village and countryside. Marina is very available and helpful. In brief, we highly recommend this rental for your holidays!
Thank you Emmanuel, it was a pleasure liaising with you and thank you for looking after our plants :o)
Lovely apartment with best view in town
We had a wonderful stay here. The apartment is outstanding. Spacious, comfortable and well furnished throughout with many thoughtful touches. Bathroom and kitchen facilities are excellent.
When we arrived the apartment was spotlessly clean and well prepared with plenty of helpful information and a plentiful welcome basket.
Both balconies have beautiful views over the town and surrounding countryside, and yes you can even see the sea in the distance. There are plenty of seating options for the balconies too. The view of the sunset is breathtaking.
The host was very helpful and responded very quickly to all communications.
Thank you David & Benita, we arrived a few days later and the plants looked great : ) We hope you return and and thank you for respecting our home : )
Warm regards, Marina
Schönes Haus mit tollen Ausblick
Wer eine Unterkunft etwas abseits der Küste sucht, ist hier richtig aufgehoben. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und entspricht absolut den Fotos. Der Blick von beiden Balkonen ist wirklich überragend. Wir haben eine Fülle von Informationen erhalten und das Einchecken war mit der Anleitung von Marina kein Problem. Das Haus ist zu den Nachbarn schon hellhörig, was uns aber nicht gestört hat. Vor dem Haus kann man nicht parken, es gibt aber zwei öffentliche Parkplätze in der Nähe, der Fußweg ist ca. 5 Minuten lang. Einen PKW sollte man schon haben, die Lage von Sidonia für Ausflüge in alle Richtungen ist eigentlich ideal.
Natürlich ich habe Übersetzung und eines Tages wird Deutsch lernen!
Thank you for respecting our home
Fabulous holiday home in beautiful area
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. A beautiful property, lovingly furnished with a thoughtful owner. Small touches like the welcome food and drink, and ponchos for chilly evenings, make a big difference. Medina itself was a lovely town and we had a great time visiting the many unspoilt beaches on the Costa de la Luz. We can’t wait to return.
Thank you Steph and I will make sure receive 'extra pampering' next time! Marina
This exceeded our expectations all round.
Once inside the property, it was even better than the description and photographs on the website. As a couple it suited us perfectly and the views from both balconies were outstanding. We didn't expect to have a sea view, as it was 35km away, but there it was to be seen, along with the spectacular sunsets. The facilities were excellent and the property was very clean, well presented and comfortable. It was ideally situated for many of the local bars and restaurants, all of which were very friendly and served a great variety of local and Spanish cuisine and drinks. The supermarket was within walking distance and had everything you could need, if you didn't want to much to carry, otherwise a car is essential. Marina provided an excellent service before departure, providing lots of useful information about the property, how to get there and Medina-Sidonia in general, as well as the surrounding area and local beaches. She also checked up while we there, aware we had flown with Ryanair and warned us about the their flight cancellations. I'd recommend this as a place to stay if you really want to sample the real Spain. Restaurant Ortega was our most frequently visited local bar and restaurant, for breakfast, lunch or dinner. May be one day in a few years we will return and take friends with us to enjoy. Thank you Marina and Viva Espania.
Delighted you enjoyed it so much and really hope you return one day :)

Jerez......35 km Famous for the sherry bodegas tours & tastings

Ronda....124 km Sitting high in the mountains is a magnificant place to visit

Maintaining a classical Andalusian appearance, the main square which is 2 minutes walk away is where children play, old men congregate and women exchange 'the news of the day'. As the meeting place of the town with restaurants, bars, shops and banks it hums with the daily bustle of local life. For further shopping, visit Jerez, Cadiz and Seville.
