“Unique tranquil home”

I selected other because we traveled with friends, extended multi-generational family, and at times we were a large group.We stayed for two weeks this June...some of our group of 16 stayed the entire time; others stayed three, four, eight, or ten days. About half of us were over sixty, the other half less than 40, including one toddler. The occasion was my husband's 70th birthday celebration. El Molino was a great venue in which to celebrate. Some visited the surrounding towns and cities, including Seville, Granada, Córdoba, Malaga, and Ronda, as day trips. Others spent most of their time at the villa enjoying the tranquillity. The birthday dinner, prepared at the villa by two local women, was a perfect celebration meal. We supplemented the tapas, paella, and ribs with our own sangria, both red and white. EVERYONE had the best time during the stay at the villa. Kimberly, the manager, was great at her job. The only thing I wish I had known ahead of time would have been the steep, and uneven, steps going to the top level of the main house. Luckily, we were in good shape when we arrived...and in great shape at the end of the two weeks!

“Fantastic, relaxing week”

We are a group of friends who have a trip away together every year . The house and grounds are beautiful and comments from the group were ' best trip yet' .
Kimberly was really helpful with local knowledge, although it was a little more than 20 minutes walk to the local bar.
All the rooms were very comfortable but I would say that some of my taller friends found the low beams interesting!
We loved the fresh eggs every day and the peaceful countryside. A fantastic house, we would definitely recommend it and visit again.

“Great experience”

We just returned from a stay at El Molino del Conde during May 2016 and it was wonderful. I wish we could have stayed on for longer. The house was everything it seems to be on the website, very spacious and welcoming. The grounds were lovingly tended, green and lush with flowers, lemon trees, cherries, lavender, and roses scenting the air. We spent our mornings over coffee around the pool listening to the bird song that filled the air.
The house is well stocked with everything you may need for a large group. There is an outdoor grill, two indoor cookers, and two fridges. There is a good notebook full of local info to help you navigate the area. The house is within a few miles of a major road so access to the larger tourist areas is quite easy for day excursions.
We were a family of twelve, older siblings and spouses, without the kids. There are stairs to navigate and at least one of the bedrooms is accessed through another bedroom but that was not an issue for us.
The caretaker, Kimberley, was a huge help and met us at the house for a welcome and a tour to show us around upon arrival. She was charming, lived nearby, and was available by phone during our stay if anything was needed.
One of the highlights of our stay was a visit from the goat herder who lives up on top of the hill overlooking El Molino. He came down with his herd of goats, their bells ringing all the way down the hill, and offered us fresh goat milk which he proceeded to get from the nanny goat right there in the field in front of us. We made goat milk flan and goat milk pancakes with eggs from the house hens and milk from the herders goats. Delicious!
We all loved our stay at El Molino del Conde and would love to go back. We would also recommend it to others looking for a wonderful stay in the countryside of Andalucia.
Thank you Nick and Amanda for restoring this lovely property and making it available for holiday renters!

“A little bit of heaven”

We were a large group of family and friends - 7 adults and 4 children. The Mill is big and rambling and very pretty, with lots of nooks and crannies for us to get into. The area around the pool has plenty of shaded areas and a huge table for us to eat around. It was comfortable and clean, with piles of toys and games for the children, books, squashy sofas, a generous amount of crockery , pots and pans in the kitchen. The manager, Kimberley was helpful and friendly and her attitude contributed to the overall feeling of generosity. She arranged for all the beds to be made up, for instance, which meant we could be flexible about where we slept. Even the chickens were generous -we had more eggs than we knew what to do with!
If you are coming with young children, you should be warned that the pool area isn't fenced off in any way and is very near the house. We had a couple of 3 year olds with us so we had to be constantly vigilant and always have an adult on duty.

Overall, a magical holiday and a great place to stay
