Overview

About the property

A typical patio house built around an open patio, the authentic andalucian home

Casa de Medina offers a stylish yet informal atmosphere in the heart of the white-washed town of Medina Sidonia. The inviting pool, pool terrace and roof terrace with mesmerising views are perfect for unwinding on lazy, sunny afternoons with a good book whilst the Moorish patio and comfortable lounge to relax with a glass of Fino and Tapa of cured ham or cheese.

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. International flights arrive at the following local airports which are an easy drive from Medina Sidonia.

Jerez - 30min

Gibraltar - 1hr

Seville - 1hr 15min

Málaga - 1hr 45min

About Gary Biston

Gary Biston has over 30 years experience working in the travel and hospitality industry. Gary originally qualified as a chef, before moving into hotel management and the travel industry - working in Austria, France, Greece, Morocco, Colombia, Spain and her islands. Having worked in a variety of positions, in many European countries and Latin America, for both mass market and specialist operators - Gary has a well rounded background and understands the varying needs of his clients. It comes natural to him to try that little more, to offer better than the rest – a philosophy which became second nature whilst working for up-market companies like Lotus Supertravel Ski and Simply Travel. Whilst still living in London he was a founding Director of Simpson Travel and was instrumental in hand picking their portfolio of properties for their programme of distinctive villas and charming hotels in Andalucía, Mallorca and Morocco.

In 2004 he moved permanently to Andalucía where a month later his daughter Lily-Ana was born in Málaga. In 2006 his son, Oliver-Tomás, was born in Jerez and where his youngest daughter Sofia-Rose was also born in 2010; they live permanently in Medina Sidonia where the bilingual children are at the local schools. Having established his family in western Andalucía – leisure days are spent enjoying the endless beaches, the cultural treasures of the cities, the rural splendour of the national parks under blue skies and warm sunshine. He is fully aware that to maintain a positive future in Spain depends on loyal clients enjoying a wonderful holiday and wanting to return or better still recommending Andalucía Hideaways to all their friends and family.

Gary says, ‘I have not only visited each property but have stayed in each on at least one occasion – I could not ‘be better qualified to help guests make an informed decision when booking their holiday’!

Gary Biston purchased this house in 2004
