We have rented villas in Europe nine times and our group agreed that San Bernardo ranks near the top of our list of favorites. It is a beautiful hacienda with large rooms for gathering together, smaller nooks for reading, private baths for 8 of the bedrooms, and lots of space outdoors. We loved the pool, the orangerie, the front porch, the guided walking tours, and most of all, the household staff. Maria and Loli are hardworking, always smiling, and accomodated our every desire. We had requested three dinners prepared by them each week and the meals were always delicious. We hired flamenco musicians to come to the hacienda after a couple of dinners and Maria and Loli even did a little flamenco dancing with the group – what fun! And in mid-stream we asked that breakfast be provided. No hesitation on their part, even though it caused some disruption to their regular routine. Wonderful!
We were able to shop in the nearby towns of Hornechuelos and Palma del Rio for supplies that we needed. There are several good restaurants in these towns, as well. The hacienda is well located for visits to Cordoba, Seville, Granada, Malaga, Cadiz, Ronda and many other sights.
It was a real pleasure to coordinate with the owner’s agent and she was always responsive and helpful. She provided lots of information on nearby attractions and also worked with us to find flamenco performers to come to us. Cristal, the owner’s agent, thoroughly represented her family professionally and with graciousness and pleasantness rarely seen.
We look forward to a future stay at Hacienda San Bernardo.
