Medina Sidonia

First founded by the Phoenicians and the Romans and then later nurtured by the Moors and the Christians, Medina Sidonia is steeped in history and culture. Characterized by its medieval walls and archways and its traditional Reja fronted houses and cool internal patios, Medina has retained a real feeling of time standing still and charming authenticity.


At nearly 350metres above sea level Medina Sidonia is renowned for its unrivalled views towards the Atlantic.  Where birds of prey often sweep below you on the warm thermals whilst you look out over the stunning Andalucían countryside.

A stroll through town will take you down narrow cobbled residential streets to enjoy a coffee or a cold beer and a spot of people watching on the main village square.


Oblivious to the hectic pace of modern life, it seems that time has stood still in Medina Sidonia.  Where sharing conversation and laughter with family and friends over tapas and a cold Sherry takes priority over work and provides a tonic for the soul.

Kirsty Biston

I made Medina Sidonia my home in 2004 when I moved here with my husband from London. We had recently acquired an old period property, Casa de Medina, which we were in the process of renovating at the time and which we now offer as a luxury holiday home.

Over twelve years later wild horses wouldn't drag me away from this beautiful hilltop town, it is a place where my three children have been born and where my businesses have grown and prospered. My philosophy on running a business in Medina Sidonia has been simple. To respect and integrate myself with the local people and utilise their extensive knowledge which is based on generations of tradition and experience.

I now own a successful hotel and restaurant in the town, La Vista de Medina as well as have various holiday rental homes, Andalucía Hideaways. I have led numerous renovation projects within the town and additionally offer a property management service to many clients who have bought houses in Medina Sidonia. 

Creating Medina Sidonia Properties was the next logical step. Over the years I have gathered extensive knowledge of purchasing and renovating properties in the town. I have worked with many tradespeople and understand where to source the correct materials at the right price, combining quality with value for money. I know how to spot a gem when I see one, even if it comes disguised as rock! 

Through building up so many professional and personal relationships over the years, my wide range of local contacts means that I am often the first to know when a property comes up for sale. After visiting each property personally, if I feel it has something special to offer then I will include it in our listings.

My priority today is to match the perfect property to my clients individual needs. To do everything I can to ensure that their decision to buy a property in Medina Sidonia will be one that brings them years of happiness and affection for the town that has become so special to me.
