Please note: minimum stay for this property is: 3 nights low season & 5 nights high season
Molino del Carmen is a wonderful combination of history and natural charm; aptly named after the famous Opera ‘Carmen’, of which the original tale was set within Gaucin - home to this property . It welcomes you with open arms to a collection of seven stylish apartments (sleeping two-six people) that are all lovingly decorated to ensure a wonderful retreat.
Once a working olive oil mill, the remains of this era are still instilled within the villa – including the original olive press, water pump, and pressure gauge in Casa Carmen. These characteristics heavily resonate old times, and when combined with traditional Spanish and Moroccan features and modern touches, Molino del Carmen is simply luxurious.
Take the bedrooms for example: a curtained entrance leads you to a wonderfully spacious, light and refreshing room of crisp white linen, complimented by terracotta, gold, and olive tones. Plus, you have your own en-suite, as well as a private terrace that will enable you to enjoy al fresco dining whilst witnessing the most breath-taking views of the village, ancient ruined castle, beautiful Mediterranean coastline and landscapes as far as Gibraltar and North Africa.
As for the living areas, classic and neutral shades ooze sophistication, whilst open fireplaces, stone archways and Moorish features provide architectural charm, The Moroccan inspired lighting creates a truly seductive and elegant ambience once the sun sets over the distant horizon.
Add in a pool terrace complete with sun loungers, and your own library full of great literature and an abundance of DVD’s to watch in your apartment (along with satellite TV of course), you’ve got yourself a perfect relaxing, and sophisticated hideaway. For those who need to access reality – WiFi is provided throughout the building.
Gaucin is drenched in history, which is free to discover right on your doorstep. The local village is within a short walking distance, where you will find an abundance of restaurants and tapas bars offering local cuisine and often those stunning views that Gaucin is known for. The evidence of the invasion of the Romans stand strong, and the cave painting, ruined castle, and Roman fountain are all worth exploring.
Further afield, you’ll find a stunning National Park (the oldest and greatest forest in Europe), plenty of walks on offer, golf courses, wine tours, horse riding and, of course, the Mediterranean Sea.
This luxury haven provides charm and opulence in a village of famous, and stunning, history, and you are sure to find plenty to enjoy here in authentic Andalucia.

What a glorious place to stay, I never wanted to leave. It is so beautifully decorated and comfortable. We spent every evening out on the lovely enclosed courtyard lounging on the cushions before we wandered into town to try another one of the lovely restaurants. Thank you for your wonderful hospitality.
