Hacienda de San Rafael

Hacienda de San Rafael was formally an olive farm and has now been renovated and converted into a small and intimate hotel. The eleven duplex rooms are situated around a bougainvillaea filled courtyard, each with its own veranda and the interior décor combines fabrics, antiques and artefacts sourced on the owner's extensive travels to Asia and India.

The Hacienda also has three casitas offering the ultimate in rustic chic. They lie in a private garden with a shared infinity pool.

Why we like Hacienda de San Rafael

The Reid family have owned this hideaway for over half a century and ensure that the atmosphere is relaxed and friendly with attentive yet unobtrusive service. For a more in-depth experience of Seville, stay at the Haciendas sister hotel Corral De Rey in the old quarter of the city.


  • Three outdoor swimming pools
  • Two relaxed bar areas
  • Restaurant serving wholesome Mediterranean cuisine
  • Paddle tennis court


Hacienda de San Rafael offers a wonderfully tranquil and relaxing retreat, however, it is also ideally located for exploring some of Andalucía’s delightful coastline, cities and villages. 

Seville is a magical city and easily reached for a day trip of sightseeing, shopping, and tapas sampling. The Atlantic Costa de la Luz coastline is rugged and wild with some wonderful sandy beaches and is a great spot for kite surfing or sailing. The hilltop villages of Vejer de la Frontera and Arcos de la Frontera are full of Moorish history and their white-washed houses and narrow cobbled streets make them well worth a visit.

If a day relaxing around the pool feels too indulgent, some yoga or a massage can be arranged on request or more specialist tours including wine tasting, riding safaris, cookery classes, guided walks and bird watching in nearby Doñana National Park to name a few.


Set amidst fertile plains just 30 minutes from both the vibrant city of Seville and the beautiful 'Costa de la Luz' coastline.
