Winner of Tatler Magazine's "Most Heavenly Hideaway" Award, This privately owned eighteenth-century hideaway is perfectly positioned exactly between the historic cities of Seville and Jerez de la Frontera. Immersed in olive groves and sunflowers that stretch out to the horizon, The Hacienda de San Rafael is a time machine to a leisurely spanish history. Once a thriving olive estate, has been meticulously restored and converted into this luxury hideaway, striking the perfect balance between rustic charm and modern sophistication.
As well as providing the perfect setting for an intimate getaway, the Hacienda is ideally located for discovering the charms of Andalucia. To the east of the Hacienda is the Sierra de Cadiz where the famous white villages are located. Westwards lies the Doñana National Park, one of Europe´s most important wetland reserves. To the south east is the dramatic coastline of the Atlantic and the Costa de la Luz with miles of sandy, wild beaches. The eleven duplex rooms are situated around a bougainvillea filled courtyard, each with its own veranda, perfect for enjoying breakfast in the morning. The interior décor bears the signature of the Hacienda´s designer, Kuky Mora-Figueroa, who has used fabrics, antiques and artefacts sourced on her extensive travels to Asia & India. For something extra special, the Hacienda has three casitas (suites) offering the ultimate in rustic chic. They lie in a private garden with a shared infinity pool, each has a large bedroom, separate living room and an upstairs siesta zone.
