The Experience

Cross the charming square to the exquisite Iglesia and climb the belfry tower. From the oldest highest quarter of Medina Sidonia, breathtaking views reach to Cadiz.

Not only does this small hotel have a prized position but its gardens brim with fruit trees. Choose a sunbed in the shade, take a dip in the pool. For food and conversation, the restaurant and bar are a stroll up the hill… breakfast, lunch and dinner are generous and delicious. Get chatting to the locals: they like the restaurant too. As for the apartments, they’re homely and secluded, and are incorporated within the old Arab wall.

Trot down the cobbled hill for cafes and bars on the Plaza de Espana. The whole town is a time capsule, and one you long to explore. If you fancy a day out, the sherry town Jerez is a 30-minute drive – as is wonderful Cadiz.

Stunning views from the top of historic Medina Sidonia. Hard-working Kirsty makes everything tick like clockwork in her delightful, boutique hotel. Lovely mature terrace gardens and tastefully decorated, comfortable rooms

Location

The neighbourhood

Medina Sidonia's admiral led the Spanish Armada: this hill town has played a pivotal role in Spanish history. Visitors admire the unusual mix of baroque, neo-classical and renaissance architecture, and the ancient Arab walls and arches. A short climb from the Old Town, the hotel is two minutes from a mini-mart (should you wish to self-cater) - and the restaurant terrace has the best views in town.

Local points of interest from Kirsty Broomhall

  • A sundowner on the terrace of La Vista de Medina. With its magnificent views of the historic town, rolling over the countryside and on to the coast, you will be watching the lesser kestrels fly below you as the sun sets over the Bay of Cadiz
  • La Vista sits adjacent to a beautiful 16th century church. More like a mini cathedral in proportions, let the calmness wash over you as you sit in the pews gazing at the amazing stonework and architecture. There are 360º views from the bell tower .
  • Wander 5 minutes from La Vista down cobbled streets to the main square for a tapas lunch. Packed with all the families at the weekends and in the summer evenings, it is a great place to soak up the local atmosphere and do a spot of people watching.
  • You cannot come to this area without educating yourself on and sampling the local sherries. We are only 30 minutes away from Jerez, El Puerto de Santa Maria and Sanlucar de Barrameda. The 3 towns that make up the famous Sherry Triangle
  • Just a 35 minute drive from Cadiz, the oldest city in Europe, this amazing compact little city has a wonderful relaxed beach vibe. Get down to the old Jewish quarter if you want packed bars and narrow streets or the beach of La Caleta for some sunbathing
  • We are in a great strategic location to visit many of the gems of the Cadiz province: with sandy beaches, coastal towns, national parks and historic cities, all a short drive away. Meaning you can combine exploring with some deserved rest and relaxation.
