Luxurious Historic Contemporary Town House, Pool, Terraces, Stunning Sea Views



Updated: 17-Sep-2016
Village Location Within Walking Distance Of Cafes, Tapas Bars, Restaurants, Market And Shops

Luxurious historic town house restored within the old servants quarters of an 1850 Palacete situated against the old city Roman wall, with an historic 500 year old moors arch existing within the house itself, and in the centre of the old town of Medina Sidonia which finds itself perched on a prominent hill at the heart of the Cadiz province with wonderful views of the lush coastal area, with fantastic access to the Sierra natural parks, historic cities and gorgeous beaches. With its intricate pattern of centuries-old, white-washed houses and cobbled streets, this enchanting, miniature city dates back to Phoenician times, and remains one of the oldest settlements in Europe. On entering the city one feels immediately at home in this charming and peaceful setting.

About the Owner

We are a couple from the North East of England who fell in love with Andalucia in 2002 when we started to holiday there. We decided to leave the UK in 2007 and move to the Cadiz Province where we now permanently live. We love the unspoilt beauty, the climate, the lifestyle and the people.

We now have lots of Spanish friends and have integrated into the lifestyle.

From the minute we arrived, hassle free - following directions from Steve, we were stunned by the quality and well resourced town house. Everything we could want for when we arrived was ready and waiting for us - including beer, wine and water! We enjoyed days going out and days staying in. The terraces and pool were fabulous places to sun-bathe and chill down. The views were incredible, especially the sunset over Cadiz. Medina Sidonia remains one of our most favourite little towns in which to base a holiday that can cater for all our needs, including those of our 14 year old son. Steve and Lynne we're welcoming and considerate, briefing us thoroughly on what to do and where to go. The only negative for us, was having to come home!

fantastic town house

  • 5 of 5

We were met by Steve in the town who then took us to the house. Gave us a great introduction to the area. The house is amazing and the setting is second to none. There is everything and more you would need to enjoy your stay in this unique home. The welcome package that Steve left for us is the best we have ever experienced. Medina Sidonia is a perfect tranquil place to base yourself for exploring Andalucia. We will certainly be back in the near future.

Close to heaven

  • 5 of 5

We (a family with a teenage daughter) had a wonderful week in this beautifully decorated and very well maintained village house in Medina Sidonia. We highly recommend it to everyone who likes a tranquil environment and who is looking for a still unspoilt white village not far from some of the best andalusian beaches. Many thanks to Lynn and Steve for their great welcome - we definitely would like to return one day to this lovely place with its amazing terrace and pool!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was beautifully furnished, equipped and very clean. A great place to stay if you want to be away from it all yet still walkable to bars and restaurants. Excellent base from which to visit Seville, Jerez and Cadiz. We came back very relaxed and chilled.

Highly recommended

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here ? the property is ideally located in a small square with a bar and a shop, and there were plenty of other restaurants and shops within a couple of minutes walk. The house was really spacious (which was great for our 11 month old daughter to crawl around in!) and very comfortable, with every mod con we needed. I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a relaxing, comfortable place to stay.

We were met by steve at the Airport and he guided us to the property. It is all it says in the guide and more! There is an incredible amount of space and character to the building. The town is fascinating to explore and the old castle ruins a revaluation.

The pool is great and the pictures do not do it justice. The whole property was wonderfully equipped with state of the art equipment and meticulously cleaned.

Thank you very much Steve for the opportunity to stay in your great property.
