An aritocratic family, composed of eleven children, their wifes, sons & daughters and grandchildren gathers at this charming family house of San Bernardo for their Christmas and Easter Holidays. Four generations still enjoy the property, the marchess, her ten living children, 16 grandchildren and 4 great-grandchildren.

Illustrious Visitors: The House has lodged King Alfonso XIII for various years and members of the nobility and various illustrious personalities such as Rafael Guerra, “Guerrita”, one of the greatest bullfighters in history. Years later, the present King of Spain, D. Juan Carlos de Borbón, in those days Prince of Asturias (heir apparent to the throne), would again honor the house with his presence.

Nowadays it is the property of Count of San Bernardo’s great grandchildren, who enjoy the house during the holidays and hunting season. San Bernardo is the perfect holiday home to rent in Córdoba, to enjoy a Natural park and a healthy vacation.

A paradise

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 09-Oct-2009
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2009
The Hacienda San Bernardo is a real paradise and we would have loved to stay there! With its hundreds of hectares of the most beautiful landscapes, you are in a little world of your own, and, at the same time, you don't feel you are "out of the world", because many beautiful andalusian towns are within easy reach of 1 hours drive. We felt very happy there and would definitely love to go there again. It was very relaxing and peaceful and the Hacienda gives you a wonderful freedom. We were also very well looked after by lovely people who were really friendly with us— and, housekeeper Leo's cooking is great, her salmorejo is better than any other we tried in prize-winning restaurants!
Our friend who visited us there said that it was a perfect place to film a movie. I think, not only is it a perfect movie-set, but it is also the perfect place to write the screenplay because it is most inspiring. On one hand, there is the beautiful nature surrounding it, the perfume in the air which is a mixture of eucalyptus, cork oak, orange, rosemary, sage…, you hear all kinds of birds singing, in the late afternoon there is a beautiful golden light, at nighttime the half-moon shines brighter than the full-moon does in London…, but also the house itself is inspiring, because it has got what in wines is called "solera", an exquisite flavor created by age. It looks back onto a very noble tradition of hunting and many black and white photographs in the house tell you about its history. It is a very beautiful and impressive old building decorated with huge paintings of hunting scenes, old tapestry and, of course, many antlers.
Well, we spent a real dream holiday there and when we returned to London we terribly missed all the freedom and peace we had there and all the nice people we met!

Owner's Response: Dear Mrs.S.
Thank you very much for your review and description of the property. We really appreciate it, as we do our best to make every client´s stay as pleasant and comfortable as possible.
Our goal is to make you feel at home, and that the time you spend at San Bernardo matches perfectly your dream holiday.
The property staff try to nurse your needs with high quality standards and loving care, and still, with a big respect for your privacy.
Although close to the main andalusian touristic spots, the natural charm of the property, that you describe as a paradise, invite the guests to stay home, enjoying its calm and peace by the pool, the wild life wathching walks, the perfect temperature for a night walk.
San Bernardo helps to retrieve the old pleasures of life, like spending time reading a book, horse riding, playing games, or simply staying calm, or visiting the nice andalusian villages arround, and spending some time tasting delicious tapas and local wines.
The property is perfect for long stays with family and friends.
We look forward to having you back at San Bernardo as soon as possible!!

Hi Cristal,




My group enjoyed our stay at San Bernardo very much. The property is quite unique by our experience and it exactly fit the kind of holiday we had hoped for.




Maria Jose and others were great. Few of us spoke Spanish but she was patient in communicating. The introduction to the property was effective and she was available to help with any issues we had.

We requested two dinners to be cooked and both were fine. In the first, we left the menu to staff, and the meal was simple and nice. In the second, one of our group provided the menu and Maria did her best to understand the dishes. We were happy with both meals... The pool facilities and condition were excellent for our group...
Again, we really enjoyed our stay, and I would certainly recommend San Bernardo to others, with just a few warnings!! ...Your help is setting up our visit is much appreciated. Thanks.
