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.

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 :)
If you want to indulge in Spanish life and feel spoilt rotten at the same time, look no further!
We have returned home from Medina three days ago now, but we're still playing Spanish music and feeling on cloud nine! This is a fantastic opportunity to feel completely indulgent in this beautiful apartment with its breath taking terraces. Medina is perfectly Spanish with only a very vague hint of tourism, so it's very easy to step into a different way of life from day one. Restaurant and shop owners in the village all know and love the owners of the apartment, so you instantly feel welcomed and part of the community. The surrounding beaches have very few international tourists, resulting in an extremely relaxed feel. The owners, who have thought of every last detail, are fabulous and very attentive to your needs whilst not being at all intrusive. If you're looking for a heaven, where home feels like a distant memory, book now! We don't speak a word of Spanish, but couldn't have felt more at home or more relaxed. Amelia and Andrew
Hi Amelia, once again we have had delightful guests and thank you to you and Andrew for looking after our home so well. It has been great fun exchanging messages with you over the 2 weeks you were there and back at home.We really hope you return and and if you do, will encourage you to share your funny incidents with us :) Mike and Marina
This property is amazing!
This property is a beautiful house in a fantastic Spanish town. It was superbly maintained and had everything we needed. The views from the balcony were amazing, especially when the sun was setting. The owner could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. It was an ideal base to explore Andalucia from with Jerez, Cadiz, Tarifa, Seville all within easy distance. Beautiful sandy beaches are only half an hour away. Medina Sidonia is not touristy and incredibly friendly. We had fantastic meals out in easy walking distance. I would recommend this property to anyone. A car is a must!
Hi Clare it has been a pleasure liaising with you and both our home and plants have been looked after beautifully. We have exchanged emails since you returned and many thanks for recommending to others :) You clearly did a lot of exploring and hopefully one day will return as there is so much more to see :) Best wishes Marina
What's Not To Like?
Fantastic chilled out relaxing stay in superb accommodation. A real find and we felt at home the minute we stepped through the door. Fabulous views from both terraces to enjoy the sunsets and views over the town. We didn't venture far as we so loved the property and Medina which is unspoilt and a little of the beaten track. Highly recommended but shhhhh don't tell anyone ;-)
Hi David thank you, it has been so entertaining liaisng with you, especially after our chat in Bar Ortega :) We arrived a few hours after you left and our plants have never looked so good without us being here. Huge thanks to Rach as you corrected me :)
Delighted that you have already booked to return in October and as we will be back in November, red wine fine for Mike :)....Yes just water for me!
Really a lovley apartment!
We spent two weeks in Medina Sidonia and we enjoyed it really much. The apartment is beautifully furnished, very well equipped and decorated with taste and love (the photos don´t lie). Marina sent us so much informations in advance about the apartment, Medina Sidonia and all the lovley places around. We feel like home from the first second!
Medina Sidonia is a wonderful town, with small shops, nice restaurants and bars. And also a perfect base for visiting all the wonderful places at the Costa de la Luz (e.g. Jerez, Sevilla, Cadiz, various beaches ...).
Once again a huge thanks to Marina for letting us more than a simple holiday-home :)
Barbara thank you for being perfect guests! Our new plants were beautifully look after and always a concern for us! The house was immaculate and it has been great fun communicating with you. I hope you return one day, especially if we manage to create a shaded area :) Thank you for the photos :) Marina
