Fian Viejo is wonderful. The photographs do not do it justice. The buildings are fabulous, the bedrooms and bathrooms equipped to the highest standards, the gardens are beautiful and the pool area is stunning. Perfect for alfresco dining as are the courtyards surrounding the reception rooms, which have plenty of shade under all the fruit trees. Comfortable chairs and tables are dotted about the grounds and with a party of about 60 we never felt crowded. Some of the wedding guests stayed at the adjacent golf club in villas which were all to a high standard and lovely setting.
We had a long weekend here for our son's wedding and it was paradise. Ana and her sister and staff were amazing leaving us to feel at home but with every need met. Follow Ana's guidance and you will have a perfect wedding. The setting, flowers, timings and gentle unobtrusive attention to detail were extraordinary. I could go on but believe everything you read in the previous reviews and you have the full picture.
Thank you Ana for such a wonderful wedding.
Visited Fain Viejo for a wedding. We were booked as the entertainment Band and have been lucky enough to visit many destinations all over the world with our work. After 300 weddings in many wonderful Castles, Chateaus and Locations all over Europe.....trust me when I say Fain Viejo is on another level. The whole villa, the grounds and the staff are incredible. There is an atmosphere here which cannot be matched anywhere.
There is always a new corner to explore...and the whole place is equally as stunning at night. Huge congratulations to Ana and the owners for making this such a unique place. Visit...relax...and enjoy !!
As a couple living in the UK, we didn't know much about wedding venues in Spain but after looking online and visiting a number while on holiday, we knew immediately that we had found the perfect venue in Fain Viejo.
Beautifully decorated and luxurious, yet understated and unpretentious, the hacienda was like nowhere we had ever been. This combined with the spectacular gardens, quirky animals and warmth and charm of owner Ana, completely won us over. We left knowing we must overcome any logistics to make our wedding happen there!
With no wedding planner and limited Spanish, we relied heavily upon Ana who went above and beyond our expectations. Even on the day of our wedding when the car was having some trouble getting started, Ana's husband Alvaro kindly offered us his own car as back up (thankfully we did not need it!). They are the most kind and gracious hosts.
We had an incredible time and were delighted that our guests loved Fain Viejo as much as we do. If you're looking for class, style, amazing hospitality and exquisite food (all seasonal local produce) in a fairy tale setting, you can't get any better.
Thank you Ana, Alvaro and your amazing team. Fain Viejo will always have a special place in our hearts.
Hacienda Fain Viejo was the perfect place to have our destination wedding! The tasteful house and lovely gardens & grounds were so gorgeous and full of history. We rented out the hacienda for an entire week, with our 2-day wedding events held towards the end of the week. It was an ideal location to use as a base for our friends and family to explore the beautiful Andalusia region.
Ana & her staff were wonderful & accommodating. Every morning began with a delicious breakfast at Hacienda Fain Viejo, followed by a full day of exploration, and ending with the best of times spent in either the beautiful courtyard, the well-appointed library room, or by the cozy couch near the staircase. Our guests were also particularly fond of all the various animals that roamed the hacienda grounds (peacocks, pigs, donkey, chickens etc!). In addition, the food served during the night of our Welcome reception and the Wedding banquet was delicious. We absolutely loved the hacienda and had so many wonderful memories spent in this lovely house.
Thank you Ana and staff for your wonderful hospitality! We hope to return one day!
We celebrated a very special occasion hosting over 100 guests in this amazing venue. The meticulous attention to detail by the hosts was apparent in every aspect of our stay, from the immaculate upkeep of the property and grounds right down to the table decoration. We viewed similar locations that didn't have the character or charm of this truly authentic hacienda. The staff were warm and friendly, the diversity of the menu was exceptional , all seasonal local produce with a very modern twist. Ana and Alvaro were at the end of the phone whenever we needed them and were always ready to listen, incorporate our ideas and accommodate our requests. Their recommendations for local suppliers were invaluable. I couldn't recommend this venue enough.
Soon after I got engaged to my now wife who is from Cadiz, we visited some potential wedding venues in the area and I was very excited to discover that one of the most beautiful venues in Europe happened to be located close to her home town. Fain Viejo is stunning. There is style and quality all throughout the hacienda and it is apparent that this is due to Ana's great taste, sharp eye, and attention to detail.
It is ideal for a foreign wedding. It serves as a cosy base for the wedding party without feeling like a hotel. My family arrived over from Ireland and we all stayed in Fain and in one of the villas across the road. We spent a relaxing day before the wedding chilling by the pool before exploring the town of Arcos.
Ana was a joy to work with. I thought we would have to hire a wedding planner as we are based in the UK but Ana organised everything from food to decorations. On the day of the wedding, the staff were first class. The whole operation in Fain is super professional.
We would love to return for a short stay in the future.
We got married at Fain Viejo in September 2017 and genuinely could not have chosen a more idyllic venue – Fain Viejo is an absolutely stunning place!
You walk into the courtyard and are instantly hit by the venue’s understated luxury and rustic charm. It strikes the balance perfectly between an authentic Spanish hacienda and 5 star boutique hotel. You could stay at Fain Viejo for weeks and continue to come across quirky parts of the building or grounds which you’ve not come across before giving the place a very unique character.
As you can only hire the whole venue (not the individual rooms), you don’t have to worry about bumping into other random guests and the whole party can relax in private. The pool is huge, there’s an array of animals roaming around the grounds and each room has its own individual features. The food is delicious and locally sourced where possible (much of it in the hacienda’s own grounds), and the service impeccable.
Ana (the owner) and her staff were the perfect hosts – always in the background and available if required but never obtrusive allowing you to enjoy your stay in peace. I can’t praise Fain Viejo enough and only wish we could re-live our stay again tomorrow!
