A recently-renovated haven of rustic chic, the 300-year old, 14-room Hacienda de San Rafael is 54 km south of Seville. Oriental antiques and artefacts blend with the Anglo Spanish owners' art collection and family memorabilia. Round the cobbled central courtyard are 11 stylish duplex rooms with peaked ceilings and galleried bathrooms; three casitas share an infinity pool in a private garden. The whole Hacienda can be booked for private functions and weddings, with catering for up to 100 guests. Many guests visit regularly, drawn by the personal service and fresh, simple Mediterranean cuisine.
