Bonjour madame Cristal
Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour à l'Hacienda San Bernardo ! Un cadre superbe, un accueil chaleureux, les personnes présentes très prévenantes, souriantes et …. quelle bonne cuisine préparée par Maria ! Toute notre famille est enchantée !
Avec mes très sincères salutation
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!
Together with a friend we spent a fabulous week-end at this incredible property. Located in the Countryside at the heart of Andalucia and sorrounded by wild nature and game, the palace maintains the authenticity and elegance of the old aristocratic families architecture. A historic landmark in Spain where monarchs used to go hunting, including present king Juan Carlos, this is a unique and impressive find whilst still unimposing and very cozy. Strongly recommendable!
We enjoyed a wonderful week at San Bernardo, as a family reunion over the Christmas period. The house is like nothing any of us had seen before - perhaps the Spanish equivalent of a small chateau or Schloss but really a hunting lodge out in the foothills of Andalucia. The hacienda is steeped in history, with a family tree extending back over centuries and records of hunting parties and gatherings of notable characters which add to the sense of occasion as one sits around the grand dining table or by the fire. The accommodation is comfortable and the house was warm despite its size. We were well looked after by Leo and Juan who live adjacent. It is a very peaceful and quiet place for a family get-together, much more fun than a hotel would have been, and with a truly authentic Spanish flavour. The local town of Hornachuelos was pretty quiet but it's not too far to bigger places like Cordoba. The surrounding countryside is interesting, rolling hills which go for miles. The people were extremely friendly and helpful to us. While San Bernardo is a bit off the beaten track, if you are looking for somewhere authentic and interesting, particularly for a larger group (we were 15), it's worth the effort - finding it in the dark on a rainy night was challenging but friendly local people came to our aid and Cristal's map was helpful. It was the best part of our Spanish holiday.
I just wanted to congratulate you about the amazing and charming "hacienda" you have in Hornachuelos (Cordoba).
We´ve had the best of our time enjoying not only nature, which is absolutely astonishing in the area, but also the impressive historic house, so well maintained and comfortable and that makes you travel through time, as if you where in the 30´s. Just wonderful!!
The orange tree garden and the pool surroundings brings many peaceful moments. The country walks during the sunset are lovely ... everything is very charming.
For sure, we would love to come back another time.
Many, many thanks for these magic days!!
A very good location
My stay in San Bernardo was a fabulous holiday. It has a unique atmosphere - old colonial style- and an environment which makes you feel like in another time, in a vast park where it is all "for you". The house has a lot of personality and you feel immediately at home.
It is ideally placed between Cordoba and Sevilla and there are shopping facilities nearby. You can also have relaxed days at home and go for long walks in the park or stay by the very nice pool.
The property is well maintained and the services from local personnel very efficient and friendly. They are used to organize dinners for 30 people!
I would love to go back to San Bernardo again.
