  Highlights...

  • A former mill which has been lovingly restored, the old mill and grindstone are now fascinating feature pieces.
  • If the swimming pool and hot tub arent enough for you then there are 3 fountains which cascade throughout the property grounds. In light of these alluring facilities all towels and bath robes are included in your stay.
  • Perfect for star gazers with incredibly clear night skies that can be enjoyed from one of your many terraces.
  • Despite being a truly rural retreat, the city of Granada with its wonderful slice of history, is only a day trip away.

  You should know...

  • This property is embedded in a valley so you wont find your usual supermarkets here, but with a nice added touch youll find that your fridge has been stocked with the basics before you arrive.
  • The mountain roads and seclusion can be daunting at first but the friendly owner, who will greet you on arrival, is always willing to point you in the right direction; you should be able to find your way around in no time.
  • Whilst the mill is an incredible property, steep walks and steps mean that it may not be suitable for children or those with walking difficulties.

The Details...

The water features of this property are truly enchanting. If the sound of a river flowing through the valley isnt enough to relax you, the 3 idyllic fountains dotted in nooks and crannies are heavenly to unwind beneath. The swimming pool, positioned towards the top of the property, comes with mesmerizing views across the lushly wooded valley and your own hot tub nestles mysteriously by a cave. With a natural plunge pool to add to your collection; you really are spoilt for choice.
The sun terraces dotted around the property are equally beguiling with seclusion and privacy in abundance. You can relax with the joys of al fresco dining on the breakfast terrace or be enticed down to the riverside for a BBQ feast in your own exclusive valley.
Inside, The Mill lives up to its outside promise, brimming with quirky features and rustic Spanish charm. Split over 3 floors, it is an explorers dream. The open plan living areas are character filled with ceiling beams, slate floors, and a wood burning stove; all of which are finished to an exceptionally high standard. The bedrooms all have their own external entrances, en suites and TV & DVD players allowing for utter privacy while the bathroom lighting is revered for its extravagance.
Being in such a breathtaking location as the Alpujarra region, taking one of the famous walks is highly recommended, there is even a walking guide and map waiting for you when you arrive. For the more adventurous, there is horse trekking or paragliding on offer to soak up the views. But if relaxation is all youre after then you can treat yourself to some wonderful local food and wine in the nearby villages and just sit back, relax and indulge yourself.
