Indoors & Outdoors

Indoors

Casa Medina Sol is the perfect holiday hideaway for a relaxing and peaceful escape with the family. 

The villa is light and cool - with tiled floors throughout – simply and traditionally  decorated and furnished.

The L-shaped combined living and dining room is a super space and has a feature fireplace and plenty of comfy seating, plus entertainment in the form of a television with UK channels, a DVD player, a Bluetooth sound dock and free WiFi.  

A large dining table provides ample room for everyone to eat together, although there is also the opportunity to dine at a smaller table in the kitchen or enjoy al fresco meals on one of the two pretty, shaded terraces. 

The fully-fitted kitchen is well equipped with all the essentials including an oven/hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave and washing machine. 

Next to the open-plan living and dining room is a playroom with a table and chairs, television and DVD player - and plenty of toys and books.  This sure to prove a big hit with the little one - and mums and dads - and keep them amused for hours. 

Whether escaping the sun for a siesta or retiring after a day's lounging by the pool or exploring, the bedrooms provide a haven of relaxation.  

There are two double bedrooms, each with a double bed and overlooking the rear terrace. 

An attractive and practical family suite comprises one bedroom with two single beds, which can be joined/pushed together to create a king-size, and leads through to a second bedroom laid out with two single beds and a cot. 

This spacious holiday home benefits from two family-sized bathrooms - one with a walk-in shower and twin sinks and the other a huge corner bath. 

Parent Point: 

  • Although the villa is single storey, there is a step up into the living/dining area and corridor and down into the family suite.

Outdoors

Casa Medina Sol features plenty of pretty outdoor space to relax, dine, enjoy the refreshing swimming pool and soak up the Andaluz sunshine. 

There are two terraces at the front of the house - one shaded from the sun by a roof overlooking the pretty, mature gardens, and a canopy that can be pulled down if required to shut out the wind.

The very private lawned garden is planted with flowers and fruit trees and has far-reaching views of the beautiful surrounding countryside. 

The focus of the garden will, undoubtedly, be the large (12m x 6m) enclosed swimming pool, perfect for a cooling dip. The lawned garden and pool area is gated off it to keep children safe, and it's easy to keep an eye on the children splashing about from the comfort of the poolside sun loungers. 

Guest are also welcome to walk through the adjoining olive grove which offers more spectacular rural views. 

Parent points: 

  • Please take care when wandering through to the adjoining land beyond the gardens as there are some areas of barbed fencing.

What's Around?

Casa Medina Vista is the ideal base from which to explore the surrounding area. 

Beautiful golden beaches, family attractions, the sherry bodegas, flamenco dancing and performing horses of Jerez, the historic city of Cadiz and even Gibraltar, are all within easy reach. 

Medina Sidonia

The centre of the beautiful white-washed town of Medina Sidonia is just a short stroll from Casa Medina Vista and offers plenty of restaurants, tapas bars and cafes alongside shops and services.

Just a short stroll to a charming restaurant owned buy your hosts, also called Vista de Medina, where you will be able to sample the delights of the local Spanish cuisine in a welcoming family friendly atmosphere. 

The town is steeped in history, with pretty churches, a ruined castle, and lots of public plazas to relax and watch the world go by...plus a playground for the little ones. 

Beaches

No family holiday to the beautiful Cadiz region would be complete without a day, or two, at the beach.

And the good news is that Casa Medina Vista is just half an hour's drive from some of the best beaches in Spain, with fine white sand and crystal clear turquoise blue water.

There's a wide variety to discover, from secluded to urban, depending on your preference and many have been awarded a Blue Flag for the cleanliness of their sand and water.

One popular Blue Flag beach is the beautiful 8km long Barossa Beach where, at the Chiclana end, there are shops and bars on an attractive tree-lined promenade.

For lots of family-friendly facilities, Valdelagrana beach in El Puerto de Santa Maria, 40 minutes' drive away, is a great choice.  This enormous stretch of beach has a children's playground, sunshades, loungers, beach sports, disabled access, and is perfect for long, leisurely strolls, picnics and sand castle building. 

Family fun

El Puerto de Santa Maria is also home to Aqualand, a world of water attractions for the whole family to enjoy. 

There are slides of different shapes and sizes and a water playground especially for the little ones.

More family fun can be found at Zoo de Castellar, outside the village of Castellar de la Frontera and about an hour from Casa Medina Vista.

The zoo is actually a rescue sanctuary with more than 500 animals and birds from a Bengali Tiger to emus, Vietnamese pot bellied pigs to monkeys.

Children are encouraged to meet, touch and learn more about the residents. 

Jerez

Jerez is an exciting and bustling city and just a 35-minute drive from the holiday home.

The city is the home of sherry, flamenco and the celebrated Royal Andalucian School of Equestrian Arts and its dancing white horses.

Aside from taking in these well-known attractions there is plenty of other things to see and do.

Visit the old Arab walled alcazar or the 19th century covered market, wander through the squares and ancient streets and the impressive cobbled Plaza del Mercado, where the Moors used to hold their market, filled with palm trees and where you'll find the city's archaeological museum. 

Cadiz

A city famous for its hospitality to visitors, Cadiz in also within three-quarters-of-an-hour from Casa Medina Vista.

Popular sightseeing attractions include the 18th century Cadiz Cathedral with pavement cafes in the square outside, Oratorio de Santa Cruz church with paintings and murals by Spain's most famous artist Francisco Goya and the Fine Arts and Archaeology Museum with relics and artefacts from the city's 3,000-year history.

The top of the Torre Tavira watchtower is worth climbing for a wonderful panoramic view of the city.

There are several gorgeous gardens offering an escape from the hustle and bustle.  Most have impressive sea views and contain exotic trees and flowers, ponds and fountains, with the largest being Parque Genoves.

Food plays an important part in Cadiz life and, as you would expect from a city surrounded by water on three sides, seafood is abundant.  Lobster, squid and shrimp are served in almost every restaurant - all of which welcome children.  Also worth trying is the local speciality Pain de Cadiz, marzipan stuffed with fruits and a kind of nougat called turron.

Of course there are also several beaches with Caleta, running between two castles, being the most popular.  For a quieter spot, Victoria Beach is the most secluded and longest. 

Gibraltar

For a real home from home family excursion head for Gibraltar, just over an hour's drive from the holiday home.

There is a host of visitor attractions including the famous Barbary Macaques - but watch out for monkey business as they can be mischievous - the World War II Tunnels, the impressive St Michael's Cave and don't miss out on an awe-inspiring trip on the cable car.

Nature lovers of all ages will want to join a whale and dolphin-watching trip from the Bay of Gibraltar.
