  • About this holiday

    Hacienda de San Rafael is a luxury boutique property located on a former olive estate outside the village of Las Cabezas de San Juan in Seville. The atmosphere is charming and refined, where intimate al fresco dinners are served by candle light in the cobble-stoned courtyard. A rural base equidistant from Seville and Jerez for luxury holidays to Andalucia in Spain.

    Our opinion

    Hotel description

    Situated on a former olive estate, the converted agricultural buildings of Hacienda de San Rafael at first appear modest upon approach via a long, dusty driveway surrounded by miles of fields. But when you breach the façade, the magic and charm of this authentic hacienda overwhelms. Step into the inner courtyard, where vibrant pink bougainvillea blossom lines the sun-bleached cobblestones and make way for special al fresco dinners. By evening this space is transformed by candle light into a romantic restaurant serving Mediterranean dishes comprising only local, seasonal produce – much taken fresh from the hotel’s own vegetable garden. The interiors of this 18th century property are cosy and rustic, with beamed ceilings overhead and age-old tiled floors underfoot. The main sitting room is warmed by a log fire and an eclectic arrangement of plush sofas and arm chairs embrace the style of the countrified location. Of the 18 guestrooms, the hacienda’s 11 deluxe rooms face the inner courtyard and consist of duplex spaces featuring wrought-iron spiral staircases. The design style is informal yet elegant thanks to the dominant use of dark wood to complement the pristine white walls. Each room extends onto a veranda where breakfast is served. Elsewhere, the three Casitas are much more spacious and refined, and have shared access to a private infinity pool. There are two other swimming pools scattered within Hacienda de San Rafael’s five-acre grounds, and other facilities include Lazy Buddah massage and yoga, a paddel tennis court, and private tours and treks are operated by the hotel.
