We had a fantastic holiday staying in this beautifully converted molino. The owners are friendly and helpful and the apartments are comfortable and stylish. A fabulous pool is located on one floor with plenty of sun loungers. There is also a library with tons of books and dvds in case you get bored of stuffing yourself with tapas at night. We stayed one week which was probably enough as we had eaten in every restaurant by the end of the stay as it's only a small town. The views from Gaucin and the Molino are spectacular too. My only complaint is that we stayed in Lillias Pastia apartment and the website said it doesn't have such panoramic or far-reaching views as the other apartments, which implies there is some kind of view but there is literally none. There's a lovely Bougainvillia covering most of the balcony and then you can just make out the top floor of the building opposite. I was really disappointed and felt like I'd missed out on what makes the Molino really special; the view. But at the end of the day, we still had one of the best holidays we've had so far. I'd definitely recommend it; just make sure you have a room with a view!
