The Venue

The award winning Hacienda de San Rafael is a privately owned eighteenth-century hideaway, perfectly positioned halfway between the historic cities of Seville and Jerez de la Frontera. Once a thriving olive estate, the Hacienda has been meticulously restored to strike a balance between rustic charm and modern sophistication. The property is nothing short of breathtaking and has been featured in Harper’s Bazaar and on Condé Nast Traveler’s Gold List. The Hacienda has 3 swimming pools, 5 acres of gardens and courtyard hideoutsperfect for moments of reflection. The rooms and casitas feature bespoke designer fabrics and linens, as well as traditional Spanish antiques and artefacts. Each room comes with a private verandah overlooking the bougainvillea-filled courtyards. On the last night, we will stay at Corral del Rey in Seville, the Hacienda’s sister hotel. This upscale boutique hotel is located in the center of town, just steps away from the Cathedral and many other architectural masterpieces. We will spend our final day sightseeing in Seville and enjoy a farewell dinner out on the town!

The Food

Andalucian cuisine is world-renowned and this retreat offers you the chance to try a little bit of everything. The head chef at the Hacienda will prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. The food is based around simple Mediterranean cuisine, using local and organic produce, as well as veggies from the Hacienda’s garden! Fish is freshly caught from the Atlantic Coastline and meats are humanely-raised and locally-sourced. You will get to experience traditional tapas dishes, Spain’s famous “little plates,” and a selection of wines from the region.
