Hacienda de San Rafael
So I mentioned in my previous post that there was a hotel - The Hacienda de San Raael iv been dying to stay at, not far from Vejar de La Frontier. Its been on my radar ever since reading about it on one of my favourite blog's Gal meets Glam.
When I saw it pop up on Julia's Instagram account I actually could not believe that there was such a cute hotel so close to us that I hadn't even heard of, let alone been to. That's why following good, like minded accounts on Instagram (You can find mine here) is so beneficial for finding fabulous places around the world
On the drive down to the Hacienda we passed endless beautiful sunflower fields, so naturally we had to stop to take some pictures. The sunflower heads were so giant, it was amazing to see.
When we arrived to the Hacienda after a morning discovering Vejar and the most beautiful drive through endless olive and cotton trees, we knew immediately that it would be exactly what I hoped and expected it to be. Rustic, laid back Andalusian style. A true Spanish Cortijo, with bucket loads of character
After checking in and checking out our room we decided upon some tapas for lunch on the terrace outside our room. The perfect way to spend the afternoon after a busy morning exploring Vejar de La Frontier.
After lunch we explored the rest of the hotel, finding endless bougainvillea in every colour imaginable, along with lemon and olive groves. The Hacienda is beautifully stylish in the most humble and rustic way with gorgeous grounds to match
As we know the area well at this point - having explored Seville and the surrounding towns extensively over the past few years, and although i'm sure there is still more for us to discover we took the opportunity to relax and sit by the pool and enjoy the hotel and gardens.
The Hacienda is a trove of fascinating treasures, the kind you find while travelling the world. I'm sure they must have many stories behind them. These are the details that make the hacienda something more than a hotel. It has a depth that can only be achieved with love. Its not like staying in a hotel, more like a friends house (fabulous friends who are well travelled)
The honestly bar seriously helps with this vibe...
Now all i'm doing of dreaming of my return....
