Having spent many years working around Europe and Latin America – it was love at first sight for Gary and Kirsty Biston when they stumbled across Casa de Medina. They have spent considerable time and effort renovating this wonderful old Andalucían town house into a family home which they want to share with their guests.
Each bedroom is individually appointed - the crisp cotton sheets, plump feather pillows, traditional wood furniture and original prints all reflect the owners’ love of Mediterranean style. Each bedroom has a ceiling fan for the hotter summer nights, SKY TV, Spanish TV, DVD and CD player. The pretty bedrooms, refreshing pool and flower-filled pool terrace are on the first floor whilst on the lower level the bodega and attractive living-dining room open onto the enchanting Andaluz patio.
Many guests enjoy the panoramic views from the roof terrace, from where one can cast one’s eye over a patchwork of undulating tiled roofs and church spires to the rural splendour of rolling hills – fringed by the Atlantic Ocean. On a clear day you can even see the Rif Mountains of Morocco shimmering in the distance!
Smokers are invited to smoke on the roof terrace only so that the ground floor, first floor and all rooms remain smoke free for all guests to enjoy.
Casa de Medina is located on a quiet, semi-pedestrianized street in the historical quarter of Medina Sidonia. Medina Sidonia enjoys an enviable and elevated position in the geographical centre of the province of Cádiz in southern Spain. The fresh fish and endless beaches of Cádiz are renowned throughout Spain and the proud locals are happy to share the delights of this lesser known province with a welcome warmer than the almost ever shining sun. Improved road and air access to this relatively undiscovered region has made Medina Sidonia and the Costa de la Luz the new ‘up and coming’ area of Andalucía.
