About Gary Biston
I made this beautiful part of Andalucia my home over 15 years ago. This 7 bedroom property was bought and renovated in 2009 and with the hard work and dedication of my team now has the excellent reputation it deserves. We also have a bar and restaurant upstairs and the views from the terraces are easily amongst the best in the province of Cadiz. I live next door to the property with my family, so i am on hand if you need me. As well as La Vista de Medina i also have a couple of other properties for rental Casa Medina being one (sleeps 10) and now the latest renovation, Casa la Muralla which is a really cute little property perfect for couples. All 3 properties benefit from the service of the restaurant. All of my staff are local to the area and i have nothing but praise for the people i have met whilst living here. Everyone is very warm and friendly. Families are always very welcome everywhere you go and you still see the importance of the family unit in everyday life. Medina Sidonia is like the UK from 50 years ago, where the kids could play outside happily and all the neighbours knew eachother. The pace of life is slower here, nothing like my old life in the UK. My background has always been in travel, from being and overseas representative and wedding coordinator in the Caribbean to leading health and safety hotel audits throughout Europe and then working for tour operators in London before making my way over here in 2004. Over the last 10 years or so i have also been able to indulge my passion for decoration and have helped other foreigners who have purchased a house locally, to renovate and decorate their own homes as well,using locals materials and tradespeople. I am very proud of my town, i think it is a wonderful place to live and even though i still like to travel a lot to get inspiration and new ideas i have never yet found a place that ticks more boxes than here!
Gary Biston purchased this Apartment in 2009
Why Gary Biston chose Medina-Sidonia
The location of La Vista de Medina is such a privelidged one. We are at the top of typical white washed village, within the old fortress walls of the city, surrounded by thousands of years of history. Directly behind us we have the most beautiful 16th century church and the Roman castle ruins. In front of us, from the restaurant terrace, the most amazing views of the whole bay of Cadiz and the town and countryside below us. The 7 suites have all been lovingly decorated so that your stay feels like a home from home. The garden in the summer is a wonderfully relaxing place to be. I have chosen plants to give, colour, shade and movement. The butterflies love the Lantana and the fragrance from the Dama de Noche is amazing! The good thing is that you feel like you are in a little hidden oasis but if you slip your shoes on and walk 5 minutes down the cobbled streets, you´ll be on the main town square which is lively with tapas bars and restaurants
What makes this Apartment unique
The amazing views from the terrace. I highly recommend a gin and tonic on the terrace at sunset so that you can watch the sun go down over the bay of cadiz. Another benefit is the location of Medina Sidonia in the province. We are fantastically located for exploring in every direction to reach beaches, cities and mountains within a short drive. Medina Sidonia has not been as touched by tourism as some places, so it is still very authentic and the people are very genuine and friendly. It´s a perfect destination to brush up on your spanish skills!

A beautiful setting in the traditional Andalucian village of Medina Sidonia
Communication via email prior to our visit was very good. We were met at the hotel restaurant by Juan, who took us to the secure hotel car park (around the short village one way system - beware if you have a large car, the narrow streets are a test!)
Our air conditioned room was spacious with a large comfortable bed and living area. We didn't use the kitchen facilities, but they appeared good.
There are 2 small plunge pools and a few comfortable cushioned loungers - perfect for a late afternoon snooze! Pool towels were provided in our room.
We had lunch and dinner at the hotel restaurant and all dishes were excellent and good value.
A 5 minute walk down a steep hill into the ancient typically white washed mountain village is worth the 12 minute walk back (!) as there are a handful of lovely restaurants and bars where the locals appreciated our limited Spanish.
We loved it here and will return again if we're in this area.
Wer abends keinen Strandtrubel will, ist hier genau richtig. Ein herrlicher Blick über die Landschaft bis hinunter aus Meer und immer traumhafte Sonnenuntergänge vom herrlichen Garten aus. Alles super gepflegt und gestylt für Menschen, die sich gerne mit Schönem umgeben. Saubere Zimmer mit bequemem Bett und Klimaanlage, die man aber nicht braucht. Schön gestaltet in allen Details und auch die kleine Küche durchweg praktisch.
Supernette und hilfsbereite Menschen - ein perfekter Aufenthalt!
Die Küste auch schnell zu erreichen mit den schönen Stränden von Los Canos de Meca, El Palmar und Conil.
