Six chic self-catering apartments, most with uninterrupted views down to the Mediterranean Sea, Gibraltar and the Rif mountains of North Africa, offer cool, classic surroundings. Tastefully finished to reflect the Moorish roots of the region, all rooms are designed to afford the Mill's guests privacy, comfort, and a haven of tranquillity in this authentic Spanish town. Linked by arched doorways, shady corridors, sun-drenched view terraces and leafy patios, Molino Del Carmen's luxury suites provide perfect accommodation for today's sophisticated travellers. Facilities at the Molino include the Pool Terrace, complete with loungers for soaking up the sun and a Rainforest Shower, plus a Library fitted in the Moorish tradition for avid readers to curl up comfortably with a book, and a laundry for the use of guests.

After 2 postponed visits to the Molino Del Carmen we finally arrived for 5 wonderful days in Oct. The Molino is beautiful and Pip the owner has taken such care to ensure the old olive mill retains many of the original features whilst incorporating its Andalusian charm and all the modern facilities you could ask for. Gaucin is a beautiful village to relax and unwind with several great restaurants and some lovely walks. El Atico restaurant in particular was excellent and Lisa was very responsive to allergies and dietary requirements. We stayed in the Don Jose apartment and the views from the terrace are just superb. The apartment was comfortable and spotless and the kitchen well equipped. We couldn’t have asked for more. Josefi the Molino’s manager was lovely and even bought a few amenities for our late arrival. It was a perfect escape, so perfect in fact that we have booked again for next year.

This is a great place for people who love peace and comfort. The old beautiful city. The view from the balcony is so beautiful that you will never forget it. The cloud will be below you! Private pool, sun, fresh bread and jam from a local store. All apartments are created with a high sense of taste so that you will feel the work of the designer. No random things. Everything is very refined and neat. In the kitchen you will find everything you need. An ideal place to go with your family and take friends with you. Children play in the pool. You are sunbathing. What else do you need?

We have just spent a wonderful week in the beautiful Andalusian village of Gaucín staying at the magnificent Molino Del Carmen. The owner Pip was fantastic in keeping in touch during delays to our trip due to the pandemic and in reassuring us about our trip in August 21. On arrival Josefi gave us a lovely warm welcome and was on hand for anything we needed all week. The village of Gaucín is absolutely beautiful and it was lovely to spend the week as a family experiencing the real culture of Spain off the tourist trail. The narrow streets are a delight to explore and the various restaurants are high quality. Due to ongoing COVID restrictions booking is absolutely essential. There is also a fabulous Deli in town where we had a few home cooked meals prepared for us to warm up in the house for our evening meals. Delicious. The accommodation at Molino is stunning. We stayed in the largest house, Casa Abanico and it is an incredible house for a family to stay in. The amenities are first class and the views from the terrace on the 4th floor simply amazing. It is impossible to do justice to how amazing the place is and incredibly for us we had the whole place to ourselves, which was amazing for the children having the pool to themselves all week. Just an amazing place and an amazing week!

This is our third visit here in as many years and we still love the breath-taking views particularly from Don Jose apartment. Molino, Gaucin, is the perfect getaway from it all place to go to relax and unwind in beautfully decorated apartments, surrounded by stunning views of the village, castle, and Rif mountains. There is everything you might need in the apartments; very comfortable beds/pillows and a lovely pool to cool off in after some time in the Spanish sunshine! The owner, Pip, and Josefina at Molino, are so helpful - nothing is too much trouble for them. There are lots of lovely restaurants and bars within walking distance where there is always a warm welcome for visitors whether you want just a quick snack or fine dining... they have it all! PERFECT!

Stunning house (we stayed in Casa Abanico) in stunning location. Gaucin is just the perfect location - close both to Ronda and the beaches of the south coast - yet feels worlds away from both. It is a gorgeous town, with plenty of restaurants, bars and cafes, very friendly locals. We took some day trips away but would have been equally happy just to stick around Gaucin. Recommend the climb up the mountain for amazing views. Molino del Carmen is a fabulous set of apartments, around a shared pool. The views from the top of Casa Abanico are extraordinary and we practically lived on the upper floor, making full use of the barbecue. Facilities are excellent - we lacked nothing! But also the decor, the character of each room, the spaciousness, the variety meant that it was a pleasure to sit in any of the rooms and enjoy relaxing in a bit of luxury. Pip and Josefi answered any questions we had and information/recommendations for places to go/eat are helpful. Both our teenage kids thought it was the best holiday they’d had.
