We stayed overnight at the Hacienda la Vereda in May 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed our visit there. The surroundings were very pleasant and the accommodation was inviting and roomy. We had a main floor room facing the back garden and found it to be very quiet and comfortable. This working winery and olive press is very Spanish but the addition of Edgar (who speaks very good English) to their staff made it easy and comfortable for us, who are English speaking, as the rest of the staff spoke mainly Spanish and a little French. We had an informal tour of the operation (translated by Edgar) and a very lovely dinner out on the patio in the evening. All was good. This B&B is off the beaten track but worth finding; it's not that easy to find, so check it out before you get going or you'll see a lot more countryside than you need to. The breakfast was very good and the staff very courteous and willing to make the experience good for us. I would recommend to anyone seeking an authentically local experience with good accommodation in a quiet area in the country. The grounds are very nice and there's a pool area that's inviting and relaxing. We were very glad that we had booked this accommodation.
Hacienda la Vereda is a recommendable place that is situated off the habitual tourist path, to stay if you are looking for a noiseless accommodation in the Andalusian countryside, meaning olive groves, olive groves and more olive groves interrupted by some wineyards used to produce the typical and excellent “Fino” or "Pedro Ximenez" of this Region. The owner Pablo (a former Pharmacist) is a very kind and handsome person, all his staff is genuine and friendly. He will show you his wine cellar and you can learn about and try all the different white wines types produced in this Region of Andalusia. Of course you will also be able to buy olive oil produced by the Hacienda that offers a total of 7 guest rooms, a small swimming pool and nice gardens plus patio with orange and lemon trees if you are into taking a drink or reading a book to relax which should be your main aim if you select this rural seat for a short vacation. The nearest attraction is the City of Cordoba at a distance of 55 km. You can reach it by car in about 50 minutes (the first 10 km is a small and pretty bad countryside road, but that’s what you would expect if choosing a place in the midst of olive groves, in harmony with silence). The amenities in the rooms are essential but well maintained, chosen with good taste and in style with the rural context and the history of the Hacienda. Breakfast is basic, don’t expect a continental breakfast or buffet, it was absolutely fine for us, they were keen to prepare scrambled eggs or freshly pressed orange juice if you just ask for it, there even was a selection of 6 or 7 sorts of tea, inclusive Rooibos... The restaurant has a warm and welcoming atmosphere and was open for lunch and dinner (a very positive surprise). They served some fine dishes, we always took the house wine, highly recommendable and easy to drink. Very good value for money in our case, I’m adding three mobile phone pics.
Fantastic boutique hotel in a tranquil location. Their website doesn't do it justice! Lovely decor with a traditional Spanish theme. Lovely food, lovely pool and very nice staff especially Patricia. I would highly recommend it!
Hacienda La Vereda renovated in its old Andalucian style, with a very personal touch and distinguished flavour. The owner decided 7 year ago to buy this hacienda to restore it in its former glory with an eye for detail.
The Hotel radiates a relaxing atmosphere to completely refresh one’s mind, an experience that will carry on for a long time afterwards. The place offers all you need; it has a restaurant, bar, terraces, swimming pool all set in a large garden. They invite you for an excursion on the premises to show off their two Bodegas for olive oil refinery, and sherry distillation from fruits harvested from their own olive and vineyards, which is interesting and scope widening.
Hike, Bike and Horseback riding are amongst the sportive activities.
You’ll be impressed by the friendly personal attention, you won’t experience in many other hotels. The typical Andalucian tiling and decoration is pleasant and put you in touch with the past.
The food served is of top quality no need to go elsewhere, besides the place is isolated from the daily hassle, why a car is needed to enjoy the fabulous surrounding sceneries. Highly recommended to anyone who likes a change from daily live.
