An Andalusian Hacienda with its own history in Arcos de la Fontera
Once a 12th century Moorish fortress, Fain Viejo evolved over time to become a Jesuit monastery, then a military prison in Napoleon’s time, and finally one of the most important olive oil producing estates in southern Spain.
Today, after an impressive renovation, the Hacienda Fain Viejo boasts one of the most important facades of Andalusian rural architecture.
Hacienda Fain Viejo has been restored and modernised in recent years, with exquisite taste and attention to detail, which has allowed it to maintain all the flavour of its history.
With antiques and works of art that give its different areas their own identity, Hacienda Faín Viejo is today a splendid venue for weddings, event celebrations and unique holiday stays.
2 dining rooms, a library with fireplace and large luxury lounges with vaulted ceilings come together in a unique atmosphere, decorated with antiques and works of art from all over the world, carefully selected by a traveling family who have owned the property for 5 generations.
Its spacious rooms can be used as wedding halls for up to 160 guests, event spaces, meeting areas or common areas where you can enjoy a group holiday.
The hacienda has 10 luxurious bedrooms: 7 double rooms and 3 twin rooms (all with en-suite bathrooms) combine maximum comfort with the tranquillity of the Andalusian countryside, making Hacienda Fain Viejo one of the best fincas with accommodation to enjoy a group holiday, celebrate a wedding with guest accommodation or organise a weekend event in this area of the Sierra Andaluza.

WHAT DO BRIDES AND GROOMS THINK
A wedding venue that can’t be beat!
We were fortunate enough to be invited here for the wedding of our friends Sarah and James.
Wow, this is a fairytale place for a wedding.
Not only architecturally breathtaking, the hacienda is decorated with stunning flourishes and ornate details. The owners helped create a magical wedding with new surprises at every turn.
The most beautiful, sumptuous, elegant yet relaxed wedding venue ever!
My son and his now wife organised their own wedding at Fain Viego on 26th September. The three day event surpassed all our expectations, and was the most beautiful, sumptuous, elegant yet relaxed wedding I have ever had the honour of attending – and I am not just talking as a doting mother….
Fain Viejo has to be the most perfect backdrop for any function, but probably the most romantic for a wedding! I was fortunate enough to to attend my cousins wedding there and fell in love with it, every detail is perfect. The architecture, interior decor and stunning gardens. Dinner was served under the stars amongst the pomegranate trees, a barbecue next to the swimming pool nestled…
Fain Viejo is absolute heaven on earth!
We traveled to Fain Viejo in May with a group of very close friends: 4 families all with young adult children. It far exceeded our expectations! What a fabulous and special place. Ana, Alvarro and all the staff at Fain Viejo are the most gracious, hospitable hosts, going above and beyond to make our stay perfect. The hacienda is spectacular with beautifully appointed bedrooms, gorgeous bathrooms with Spanish tile, unique architecture and lovely antiques.
¡Estamos en un sueño…! Gracias por todo.
Nuestra boda fue preciosa, todo perfecto. muy agradable sorpresa, Fawzi y nuestra familia estuvieron felices, la tarta estaba deliciosa.
No hay palabras para describir lo que Faín significa para nosotros.
Intenté describirlo en las reseñas que acabo de hacer en los distintos canales; cosa que hice con sumo placer.
