Hacienda de San Rafael, Seville

Standing halfway between the busy, historic cities of Seville and Jerez, the Hacienda de San Rafael is also the midpoint between quaint, traditional comfort and stylish, contemporary luxury.

As a former part of a renowned estate, the hacienda is still surrounded by sweeping olive groves, rolling countryside and fields of sunflowers. Its impressive white walls are punctuated with shuttered windows and capped with tiled roofs. A shady, internal courtyard is perfumed by fragrant, vivid bougainvillea.

Inside, you are treated to an authentic hacienda experience. Tasteful décor combines with thick walls and high, raftered ceilings to create an air of calm, luxury. The rooms and suites are all similarly stylishly rural, and the cuisine is authentic hacienda – delightfully prepared using as many local ingredients and regional specialities as possible.
