This is one of the nicest places I’ve ever stayed in. A beautifully restored stone miller’s house set deep in a gorge by a river, with lovely gardens and terrace area where you can eat dinner if it’s warm enough.
The rooms are split level with a comfortable seating area and a bed and en-suite bathroom on the mezzanine upstairs, with organic toiletries provided. The location is really quiet - all you can hear is the birds and the sound of the river. There was a plate of biscuits and a bottle of water waiting for us each evening which was a nice extra touch.
We were really impressed with the quality and variety of the food on offer. The dinners were over 4 courses and were delicious, using a lot of organic produce from the garden - you could tell Javier had put a lot of care and effort into each dish and even provided home-made liqueurs to finish the meal.
There are some interesting walks in the area and the village of Orbaneja del Castillo is particularly pretty. A lovely place and really nice, genuine owners – I hope I’ll get the opportunity to go back some day.
