Hacienda de San Rafael is set amidst a former olive estate in the Andalucian hinterlands, midway between the must-see cities of Seville and Jerez de la Frontera. Striking a balance between rustic charm and contemporary sophistication, the San Rafael is a beautifully-restored hacienda hideaway.
Set amidst six acres of beautiful grounds where you'll find the two bars and three swimming pools, this traditional boutique hotel is built around a bougainvillea-filled courtyard, in which you'll dine alfresco in season. Hacienda de San Rafael’s restaurant embraces simple yet flavoursome Mediterranean cuisine, with organic produce sourced from the kitchen garden and there are two alfresco bars in the east and west gardens.
The courtyard at Hacienda de San Rafael is lined by 11 deluxe duplex rooms, each absolutely stunning in style and presentation with a private veranda. There are also three casitas offering the ultimate in rustic chic, set in a private garden with a shared infinity pool.
