When to go to Hacienda de San Rafael


Not Ideal

- Due to the current Covid-19 situation, Hacienda de San Rafael will be operating on an 'exclusive use basis' rather than taking hotel guests on a room by room basis. This will enable families or groups of friends to rent the casitas as an exclusive pod, or the pool villa, so that small groups of friends and family can come together and enjoy the freedom of somewhere like the Hacienda that remains safe and isolated. - 


The Hacienda de San Rafael, once a thriving olive estate, has been meticulously restored and converted into a luxury hideaway striking the perfect balance between rustic charm and modern sophistication.

This privately owned eighteenth-century hideaway is perfectly positioned halfway between the historic cities of Seville and Jerez de la Frontera.

As well as providing the perfect setting for an intimate getaway, the Hacienda is ideally located for discovering the charms of Andalucía. 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 southeast 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 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. An outside “chozita” offer guests a comfortable day bed for relaxing or individual dining.

A further Pool Villa can also be taken on an exclusive use basis by families or groups of friends. 

Hacienda De San Rafael is set in the beautiful Andalucian countryside, near the village of Las Cabezas de San Juan, midway between Seville and Jerez. The closest airport is Seville which is approximately 45 minutes from the hotel. 

Dating back to the 18th century this traditional hacienda is still a working farm where the family make their own oil. This sense of history and tradition is what gives the property such a unique charm. Combined with the excellent service and relaxed atmosphere it is easy to see why this is a property that has guests coming back year after year.
