About Marina

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.After a few years making and selling Italian sauces at farmers markets, I am trying to get them manufactured.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 La Janda

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.

What makes this house unique

One of the best views in Medina

Guestbook comments from the manager

In one word, brilliant! One of the best properties we've rented so far (and we've rented many). Super clean, spacious, decorated with taste and love. 2 terraces with amazing views over the complete area and downtown Sidonia. The town is wonderful too. Nice bars, restaurants and a great plaza. Stroll through the clean, white, narrow and nicely decorated streets. Close to great beaches and amazing cities. We loved Cadiz a lot. Went there twice in a week. Last but not least the owner is super friendly and responsive. A shame we haven't met her in person. A no brainer. This is the place to be in Sidonia.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

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 :)

Excellent Condition, Excellent Position

  • 5 of 5

Marina & Mike's house is very comfortable. It felt like a home. Great attention to detail. Marina sent us very good information before we visited and is well connected in the town, so we settled in quickly and made good use of the facilities of Medina Sidonia.

Another beautiful week away!

  • 5 of 5

Our second stay in Suenos last July and again blown away by the amazing views, luxury accommodation and charming village just steps away. Short drives to both coast and beautiful countryside or stroll round Medina and adopt the village pace of life...and relax!

Perfect base to explore southwest Spain

  • 5 of 5

Located in the quiet "white town" Medina Sidonia is "Suenos." The property is relatively new construction and yet a very short walk from the Plaza de Espana--the heart of village life. Everything we needed locally (restaurants, shopping, grocery) was within walking distance (a plus when parking is limited). Suenos is in excellent condition and working order with outdoor patios on two levels affording panoramic views if the village below and bucolic countryside beyond. Our itinerary included Arcos, Cadiz, Costa de Luz beach towns, Sanlucar, Santa Maria and Vejer, and Suenos was the perfect base for unrushed day trips to all. Here you can immerse yourself in Spanish life the way it has been for centuries. Highly recommended!

What an Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

What a lovely apartment!

We spent a week in Medina Sidonia. The weather was perfect ( we love Spain in the Autumn). It was warm and balmy, allowing us to wander this lovely old town from dawn till dusk and experience some lovely food in the excellent Restaurants in the busy town square. We hired a car and had lovely days in Cadiz and Jerez. We definitely recommend the Tio Pepe Sherry Tour.

Back to the apartment. Marvellous views from the terraces. It could not have been better. Beautifully furnished, it was very comfortable and very well equipped. Marina and Mike have thought of everything. It really is a home from home, and they have spared no expense in decorating the apartment with great taste.

We are already planning our next trip to Spain and Portugal which will certainly include a few days at “Suenos”
