“Great memories and the same unique experience - consistency is the word!”
Reviewed May 15, 2013 for a stay in July 2012

Having celebrated our wedding in Fain Viejo back in 2007, we decided to go back last year for a 5 days break, just a couple of months before our 5th wedding anniversary. 5 years sounds like a long time but we were pleasantly surprised to see Fain was "as we left it" and Ana (owner/operator) received us with the same wide smile.

I won't go into the detail because Ana and Fain Viejo are exactally that - all about detail, taste and hard work to ensure your stay with them is one you'll never forget.

I cannot recommend Fain Viejo enough for any special occassion - from family reunion, to wedding or even small business/management offsite ...

Thumbs up to Fain Viejo's crew - keep it up guys!!

“Pristine, Private Location, Professional Performance, Fine Cuisine and Highly Motivated Staff!”
Reviewed March 18, 2013 for a stay in September 2012

We had the pleasure of celebrating our wedding party at Fain Viejo. The proprietor Mrs Ana Zelba and her staff catered three days of all inclusive outstanding hospitality with the finest dishes made of local produce set amidst a traditional, very well maintained and decorated mansion. Every query was attended to with genuine interest andthe finest generosity.

Breakfast was served in the courtyard under the old lemon tree, lunch was served at the patio adjacent to the house under an umbrella of granate apple trees, a buffet with barbeque and bar were served at the pool, a reception in the courtyard, a candle light dinner in the garden, a party in the old olive mill and a brunch at the rear of the mansion shaded under the grapevines.

We were so overwhelmed by positive emotions that it is almost impossible to put all these fine thoughts into words of gratitude. It puts a big smile on our faces every time we think about our weekend at Fain Viejo! Every little detail was absolutely perfect and we couldn’t have wished for a better location to celebrate our wedding!

The gentle and proficient attitude won our hearts from the first email illustrated by Mrs Zelba’s most appropriate statement that: ‘Everything we do, you do first class.’ From initial concept to delicate attention to details in the execution, everything was absolutely perfect. The professional performance, fine cuisine and highly motivated staff exceeded our wildest dreams and highest expectations!

An amazing weekend among friends and family at a pristine location with such incredible hosts, service and cuisine is the biggest wish come true for any couple to celebrate their marriage.

Alternatively the location may very well do for family reunions (up to 20 beds), a group of friends longing to enjoy the secluded property and its gardens, or - for that matter, groups up to 150 people for haute cuisine dinner party's. The large estate and well maintained gardens allow for lots of retreats and fine walks, offering a great get together while catering for individual privacy to wonder one's thoughts, read a book or enjoy an indoor or outdoor siesta!

Nothing short of breaktaking!
