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.

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

We have recently spent a week in this beautifully converted mill situated amongst the olive groves in Andalucia. Easily reached from Malaga airport and within travelling distance for day trips to Granada, Córdoba and Seville.
We were a group of 6 couples and we all had access to our own bathroom - 5 of these were ensuite. All the rooms were spacious and comfortable.
The in-house catering service is well worth using - a large array of superbly cooked food at a very reasonable price.

“Wonderful Venue for a Celebration and Large Groups”

We have recently returned from a wonderful week at El Molino del Conde. We took the house for our daughter's 21st Birthday and had extended family staying up until the party at the house and then our daughter had 20 friends to stay for a few days afterwards! The house is very large and comfortable for a large group with plenty of bathrooms and large spacious bedrooms. There is a large farm house kitchen, a separate dining area with very long table and a sitting room. Outside there is a good size pool with plenty of sun loungers, the tennis/badminton court and lots of quiet peaceful seating areas if needed. There is a covered dining area where we sat 31 for dinner and outside fridges by the pool. Kimberley the manager is amazing. She organised pretty much everything for the 21st dinner and nothing is too much trouble. The food was delicious. It is also worth noting that Kimberley can arrange her catering ladies to come in at very little notice and prepare amazing meals for large groups at the house and when they leave, the kitchen is immaculate with all washing up etc done. A true holiday treat when there is a large group and one we made use of several times! The location is very peaceful and quiet. The younger members of our family enjoyed the chickens and ducks. Fresh eggs everyday were much enjoyed. There is a garage just up the road which sells essentials and a supermarket a short drive away. The wifi is a bit hit and miss but that is to be expected and always came back on. One thing to note is that not all the bedrooms are air conditioned although there are plenty of fans. I think if all the bedrooms had air conditioning it would be perfect in the hot summer months.

“A Spanish idyll”

We have just returned from celebrating my husband's birthday at El Molino with 19 close friends and family members and we had a wonderful time. The organisation prior to arrival was top notch and the actual Molino is amazing - all of the rooms are of a very high standard and the owners have clearly considered every comfort. The pool area is perfect and the outdoor fridge and eating facilities were put to full use despite it only being April (we had glorious weather most of the time). The kids loved collecting the eggs from the chickens every morning - fresh tortilla for us all - and the adults loved having several meals cooked for us by two wonderful Spanish ladies (even the washing up was done!). In terms of location, it is perfect - fifty minutes or so away from Granada and Malaga, with Cordoba close by also, and there are supermarkets 20 minutes or so away to enable you to stock up on everything you need (mainly tinto in our case!). Our only niggle was the intermittent nature of the wifi but in many respects that was also a blessing as it meant we could leave work well and truly behind. All in all, an amazing stay!
