Experience the real Andalusia in style

Medina-Sidonia is an undiscovered white pearl in the lesser-known part of Andalusia. Quietly located inland of Cadiz, some 25 kilometres from the beautiful Costa de la Luz with its kilometres of beaches. The town sits on a hill (at an altitude of 300 metres) with panoramic views. On clear days, the Atlantic Ocean and even Africa across the Mediterranean can be seen. 

Medina-Sidonia is one of the oldest towns in Europe and has a rich history, much of which can still be found today. Over the last 3,000 years Phoenicians, Romans, Visigoths and Moors have settled in Medina-Sidonia. The city has been declared a heritage site and received the award for one of the most beautiful Andalusian cities. No mass tourism here but a still original town where real Spanish life can be found. 

Medina-Sidonia is ideally located for exploring this beautiful region. Cádiz, also known as Little Havana with its long promenade, is a 30-minute drive away. It is Europe's oldest city and offers good food, a city beach and a rich culture.  Phoenicians settled here as early as 1,100 years BC and traces of antiquity are still plentiful, such as the Teatro Romano, an almost entirely intact amphitheatre.

Jerez de la Frontera, Vejer de la Frontera and the Costa del Luz with its kilometres of sandy beaches are also just half an hour's drive away. You will also drive to the surfing mecca Tarifa within one hour. Here you can surf but also book a boat trip (April - October) to see dolphins, orcas (July/August) and whales or take the one-hour ferry to Tangier, Morocco. The beautiful city of Sevilla is only 1 hour 20 minutes drive away and is perfect for a day trip or to combine a few nights there with your stay in Medina- Sidonia. 

Medina Sidonia has a Mediterranean climate. Summers are hot and dry and in winter you have moderate temperatures and some rainfall. The average annual temperature for Medina Sidonia is 22 degrees Celsius. For more details and the best period to visit Medina Sidonia click here.
