Luxurious historic town house restored within the old servants quarters of an 1850 Palacete situated against the old city Roman wall, with an historic 500 year old moors arch existing within the house itself, and in the centre of the old town of Medina Sidonia which finds itself perched on a prominent hill at the heart of the Cadiz province with wonderful views of the lush coastal area, with fantastic access to the Sierra natural parks, historic cities and gorgeous beaches. With its intricate pattern of centuries-old, white-washed houses and cobbled streets, this enchanting, miniature city dates back to Phoenician times, and remains one of the oldest settlements in Europe. On entering the city one feels immediately at home in this charming and peaceful setting.

About Steve Breckon
We are a couple from the North East of England who fell in love with Andalucia in 2002 when we started to holiday there. We decided to leave the UK in 2007 and move to the Cadiz Province where we now permanently live. We love the unspoilt beauty, the climate, the lifestyle and the people. We now have lots of Spanish friends and have integrated into the lifestyle.
Steve Breckon purchased this House in 2007

Top quality accomodation in an historic Spanish town
We really ejoyed our stay in this this historic town house whichwas has been coverted to a very high standard.
Historic Medina Sidonia is an authentically Spanish town and was an ideal base from which to explore the countryside,the coast and visit the historic towns of Jerez and Cadiz. The bars and restaurants offered good food at very reasonable prices.
This in the Spain we like and will visit again.
Beautiful Spanish townhouse in the perfect location
Arrived at the property and was met and shown round by the very helpful Neil, was very pleased with our choice, the property has been tastefully restored, quality appliances, even English TV channels (which we tried our hardest not to watch) shared pool area was a peaceful haven to chill out in.
Medina Sidonia itself is a lovely white town, lots of history, friendly locals, good bars and restaurants on hand, our mainstay was Paco Ortega for simple but good tapas.
Location wise, close to Jerez, Cadiz and Seville, there are lots of beaches to explore, all within 30 - 60 minute drives, our favourite was Zahara De Los Atunes.
We hope to return soon!
Best holiday to date!
We spent two weeks in this property and what a find it has been. A recently redeveloped palacete which consists of two bedrooms, a superb kitchen and dining/ living room, three shower rooms/toilets and an additional sitting are/room at the top. There is a roof top terrace with comfortable seating which provides spectacular views of Medina Sidonia over to Cádiz. The sunsets viewed from this terrace are unforgettable and different every night. There is also a swimming pool available on the roof, for the use of the occupants of the small number of flats in the house. During our stay we never had to share the roof terraces or the pool with any other people, even though the flats were occupied. Medina Sidonia is an unspoilt Spanish town that has a busy but untouristy night life. If you fancy joining the locals sitting in the plaza at midnight, drinking wine and eating tapas then this will be right down your street. Medina Sidonia is within easy travelling distance from Cádiz, Jerez, Gibraltar and a plethora of beautiful sandy beaches. Even though our family mantra is never to holiday in the same destination twice, we have all agreed that the Costa de Luz is worth a revisit.
A little gem
This house was truly a little gem in a very tranquil part of Spain. We were met at the property by Neil who gave us a tour of the house and shared his comprehensive knowledge of the area with us. The property was excellent - beautifully restored and appointed to provide everything you would need together with being spotlessly clean and well maintained. The pool area and sun beds were great for relaxing and sunbathing and the views from the sun terrace, especially the sun sets, were fantastic. The house was only a few minutes walk to the town where you could find the local shops (in fact there was a little local shop shop next door to the property!) many wonderful bars and restaurants - we especially enjoyed Show de Tapas, Bar Cadiz and La Vista de Medina but visited many others too. Whilst here we took the opportunity to visit Cadiz, Jerez, Cabo de Trafalgar and even Gibraltar.
We really enjoyed our 2 weeks at the house and the relaxing setting of Medina-Sidonia and will return hopefully soon.
From the minute we arrived, hassle free - following directions from Steve, we were stunned by the quality and well resourced town house. Everything we could want for when we arrived was ready and waiting for us - including beer, wine and water! We enjoyed days going out and days staying in. The terraces and pool were fabulous places to sun-bathe and chill down. The views were incredible, especially the sunset over Cadiz. Medina Sidonia remains one of our most favourite little towns in which to base a holiday that can cater for all our needs, including those of our 14 year old son. Steve and Lynne we're welcoming and considerate, briefing us thoroughly on what to do and where to go. The only negative for us, was having to come home!
fantastic town house
We were met by Steve in the town who then took us to the house. Gave us a great introduction to the area. The house is amazing and the setting is second to none. There is everything and more you would need to enjoy your stay in this unique home. The welcome package that Steve left for us is the best we have ever experienced. Medina Sidonia is a perfect tranquil place to base yourself for exploring Andalucia. We will certainly be back in the near future.
