We stayed here as part of a friends wedding party. The whole weekend was fantastic in every way from the setting, the food, and the helpful service from the owner Ana and her team. We were made to feel completely at home and had a fabulous weekend.
I stayed here for a wedding in September 2016 and the setting, service, food, character and charm of Fain Viejo could not have been more perfect.
To start with it is the most beautiful setting- a gorgeous Spanish country farm house with piglets running around, a beautiful swimming pool and numerous outside areas to relax in. The rooms have everything you need inside and all have individual quirks. Ana and her team make you feel so unbelievably welcome and nothing is deemed too much. The breakfast and food were all delicious- fresh eggs in the morning along with fruit, meats, baked goods and everything you could want.
It really is the perfect setting for a wedding venue or a group holiday away with family or friends. You feel completely secluded from the world and it feels very special.
I stayed in Faín Viejo for a wedding at the end of September. It couldn't have been more perfect - the surroundings, staff, food and little piglets all made for the perfect location for a dream wedding! Thank you Anna and the team for such an amazing Spanish experience!
We don't even know where to begin to tell you HOW AMAZING this place is. It is an absolute utopia and photos could never do it justice as you have to see and feel it to believe it is true. We stayed here for three nights two weeks ago and celebrated our wedding reception there. It was by far the most perfect and wonderful few days of our lives and a huge part of that is down to the staff and the venue.
The venue itself is a stunning old hacienda/cortijo and the decor is absolutely stunning- filled with antiques and curiosities, so classy and a real visual feast. The gardens are immaculate and tended to by Juan who has worked there for over 30 years! They are filled with life- from the rare Japanese hens, peacocks and geese to a donkey, sheep and family of pigs including two baby piglets. This is not to mention the trees full of pomegranates, oranges, lemons and olives ready to burst.
The food prepared is made on site by the amazing chef and kitchen staff, also long serving members of the Fain Viejo family, and they use as much of the produce grown on site as possible- including their own olive oil, marmalade and quince jelly. In addition to our marvellous wedding meal, which was out of this world, we also enjoyed a sensational poolside dinner with all of our bridal party and family there on the Thursday evening, as well as delicious breakfasts every day. The quality and attention to detail of absolutely everything to do with our stay, and the preparation in the lead up to the event, was absolutely unbelievable. We will never be able to thank Ana Zalba and the staff at Fain Viejo enough for making our wedding the most magical experience of our lives. It brings a tear to the eye just thinking of it and how stunningly beautiful this place is.
We can not recommend highly enough- 5 stars is not enough!

I stayed here last weekend with my wife as we were invited over for a little break and to celebrate a friends wedding. We stayed in this hacienda for 3 nights.
Its hard to start and describe what an amazing venue this is. The place is beautiful, interesting and holds all the requirements of 14 couples who are there to celebrate a wedding.
The morning breakfast provided was incredible. A buffet style with a few things cooked to order. The wedding reception food was absolutely out of this world. Whoever the chef is deserves a huge pat on the back. The canape food during the drinks reception was perfect. The three course meal during the wedding breakfast was out of this world!
This place is a real gem. It would work perfectly for a large family getaway as well as the wedding that we stayed for.
My favourite thing about this facility is the fact that it is perfectly run. There aren't a huge number of staff around the hacienda through the day which give the group the feeling of being independent and a great feeling of this being your home.
Ana the owner of the hacienda is a wonderful women who aims to please.
