Having spent our 25th and 40th wedding anniversaries and other holidays at Molino del Santo, this review is badly overdue - but better late than never!
A few miles outside Ronda, Molino del Santo is set at the bottom of the valley beside a mountain stream in the lower half of the 'white' village of Benaojan. The air is clear with an almost alpine feel to it. The local train, which runs a few times a day, is very useful for either short trips (perhaps the return leg of a walk) or to venture much further afield. The countryside around is stunningly beautiful with several very different national park areas and the famous white villages.
The hotel is a skilfully converted mill with later additions carefully blended to form a visually appealing whole. The original heart of the mill is now a sitting room with plenty of books on the local area and a log fire on cool evenings. Bedrooms and bathrooms are immaculate, most with a balcony or terrace. The garden overflows with flowers planted in every conceivable container from terracotta pots to giant olive jars.
The restaurant's local popularity tells its own story and it serves superb, locally sourced, food either indoors or on the terrace running along the stream. Breakfast is comprehensive and almost all homemade.
English owners and Spanish staff combine to make an unbeatable team.
Sitting in the beautiful garden with amazing views across the valley and only the sound of birds and the rushing stream is a magical and unforgettable experience.
