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.

If you want to indulge in Spanish life and feel spoilt rotten at the same time, look no further!

  • 5 of 5

We have returned home from Medina three days ago now, but we're still playing Spanish music and feeling on cloud nine! This is a fantastic opportunity to feel completely indulgent in this beautiful apartment with its breath taking terraces. Medina is perfectly Spanish with only a very vague hint of tourism, so it's very easy to step into a different way of life from day one. Restaurant and shop owners in the village all know and love the owners of the apartment, so you instantly feel welcomed and part of the community. The surrounding beaches have very few international tourists, resulting in an extremely relaxed feel. The owners, who have thought of every last detail, are fabulous and very attentive to your needs whilst not being at all intrusive. If you're looking for a heaven, where home feels like a distant memory, book now! We don't speak a word of Spanish, but couldn't have felt more at home or more relaxed. Amelia and Andrew

This property is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

This property is a beautiful house in a fantastic Spanish town. It was superbly maintained and had everything we needed. The views from the balcony were amazing, especially when the sun was setting. The owner could not have been more welcoming or more helpful. It was an ideal base to explore Andalucia from with Jerez, Cadiz, Tarifa, Seville all within easy distance. Beautiful sandy beaches are only half an hour away. Medina Sidonia is not touristy and incredibly friendly. We had fantastic meals out in easy walking distance. I would recommend this property to anyone. A car is a must!

Owner's Response: Hi Clare it has been a pleasure liaising with you and both our home and plants have been looked after beautifully. We have exchanged emails since you returned and many thanks for recommending to others :) You clearly did a lot of exploring and hopefully one day will return as there is so much more to see :) Best wishes Marina

What's Not To Like?

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic chilled out relaxing stay in superb accommodation. A real find and we felt at home the minute we stepped through the door. Fabulous views from both terraces to enjoy the sunsets and views over the town. We didn't venture far as we so loved the property and Medina which is unspoilt and a little of the beaten track. Highly recommended but shhhhh don't tell anyone ;-)

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.
