I am Cristal, number 9 of a family of 11 children, and madly in love with our family house that we treasure. With my work as property manager, I aspire to keep this property in our family and pass it over to the new generation. This will be my - and my siblings - tribute to our beloved mother, Maria, late Marchioness of La Guardia, who passed away in October 2018. A true lady, joyful mother, good Christian, and a model of lady, who deeply enjoyed the days she spent at Hacienda de San Bernardo. Illustrious Visitors: The House has lodged King Alfonso XIII in many ocasions, aswel as members of the noble families and various illustrious personalities such as Rafael Guerra, “Guerrita”, one of the greatest bullfighters in history. Many years later, the King of Spain, D. Juan Carlos I, in those days Prince of Asturias (heir apparent to the throne), would also honor the house with his presence. The property has been in the family since our great grandfather bought different pieces of land, gathered them and built this charming country house, a classic luxury villa at that time, used for shooting parties and entertaining. Nowadays the Hacienda belongs to 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 celebrate private weddings or enjoy a Natural park and a healthy vacation.

Unforgettable wedding and friends & family gathering!
Perfect setting for our wedding: amazing gardens unique historical house. We spent a week with friends and family coming from different parts of the world for the wedding. Everything went smooth and easy. Thanks to the Great staff. We will never forget it!
Magnificent property set amidst a large estate, peppered with colourful spring flowers, leading to a multitude of orange trees, giving off pervasive scent of orange blossom, and sculptured yew hedges creating a fairytale garden.
The house was a sanctuary for the hot days, with comfortable sofas and for the cool nights, with flaming log fires. The staircase up to the bedrooms was palatial, and all the bedrooms, both in the new and old wings were lovely.
Maria, the housekeeper, is a great cook, and Manolo the gardener, a great horticulturist, and fire builder! Maria and Loli kept the house spick and span and we’re a joy to interact with, especially to those of us trying to practice our Spanish.
There is so much to keep the visitor occupied that many of us rarely ventured outside the estate. I would highly recommend Hacienda San Bernardo.
No words to thank you enough for your lovely review and for keeping our eyes open with your view of the house, the view of a sensitive guest, the kind of guest we look forward to having.
We are lucky to have had you, and delighted that you enjoyed your stay, and our staff. They always try their best to please our visitors.
Thanks a lot for loving Hacienda San Bernardo! Hope to have you back some day in the near future.
Une semaine de rêve à San Bernardo
Cela faisait 18 mois que nous attendions avec impatience cette semaine de retrouvailles familiales à l'occasion de nos 50 ans de mariage: nous n'avons pas été déçus! Malgré notre nombre (26) et l'éventail très large des âges (75 à 6 1/2), nous étions au large dans cette magnifique maison, à la fois impressionnante par ses dimensions et chaleureuse par son décor un peu suranné de maison de famille, tout y est fait pour que l'on se sente chez soi tout en étant accueilli comme un hôte de marque. Les personnes chargées du service étaient parfaites et les enfants s'en sont vite fait des amies. elles n'ont pas ménagé leur peine pour nous rendre la vie agréable. Malgré la chaleur, grâce à la piscine, à la campagne environnante, aux horaires adaptés, nous n'en avons pas souffert. L'immense propriété, sillonnée de nombreux chemins, nous a donné l'occasion de belles promenades et les attraits touristiques connus (Séville, Cordoue) ou plus confidentiels (San Calixte, Hornachuelos) ont satisfait tous les goûts. Nous garderons un souvenir un merveilleux souvenir des soirées sous les orangers, des matinées autour le la piscine rassemblant petits et grands, des virées à Hornachuelos pour la fête patronale!
La semaine a passé trop vite!
Nous sommes très heureux que vous ayez passé un bon séjour a’ San Bernardo avec toute votre famille. La maison a le charme particulier d’ une demeure historique avec les améliorations faites au fil des années pour garantir que nos hôtes puissent y passer un séjour très confortable et mémorable. Nous sommes particulièrement contents que vous ayez apprécie’ également le jardin et le patio avec les orangers - tout a été conçu dans la famille, d’abord par ma mere puis par mon frère qui est paysagiste - comme vous le savez peut- être, dans la culture andalouse le jardin est une métaphore de la beauté du paradis et de ses délices.
San Bernardo s’ apprécie aussi pour la beauté de la campagne environnante et que ce soit un peu loin des sentiers battus rend notre propriété unique, même si les endroits plus connus sont facilement atteignables. Ça nous touche beaucoup que vous en ayez profite’ pleinement et nous espérons vous y revoir bientôt.
Thank you for a unique & beautiful wedding !
Even more beautiful than in the pictures, we enjoyed garden parfums, quietness, amazing walks in the countryside.. San Bernardo gave us the chance to spend some days with dear friends and celebrate our wedding! Thank you to both of you for making our dreams possible with a beautiful wedding at Hacienda San Bernardo - everything went beautifully and wonderfully and we could not be more happy with the results.
As far as our friends and family, they have all fallen in love with the house and Cordoba so you can expect several of them to return to Andalusia for vacations on their own and with other friends!
We were just discussing how lucky we were to have worked with both of you on this special moment in our lives and we would love to one day return to celebrate an anniversary some time in the future.
Please give our regards to Maria Jose who was wonderful in preparing all the meals as well as help around the house. She is truly amazing!
You are all very nice and special people and we are truly blessed to have met you and have had this experience - we will treasure it forever.
Fantastic property in a lovely country location. Plenty of space and quiet gardens. Good pool.
14 of us stayed for a week. The kids loved the pool, the adults the property and setting. The house keeper looked after us when we requested anything, such as booking an evening meal. The village of Hornachuelos is a couple of miles away so we could get any provisions we needed. We had a thoroughly enjoyable week and didn't want to leave. I'd definitley recommend it for large groups.
Dear David, thank you very much for your review and for spending your holidays at Hacienda de San Bernardo. Our only concern is to make your stay as enjoyable as posible, offering services such as cooking, shopping, bookings, ett.
Hope to have you back again for your next family reunion! best,
