Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday apartment in Montoro - Beautiful Olive Mill
Apartment, 3 bedrooms, 1 bathrooms, sleeps 6
Our accommodation has been created to offer you the perfect place to 'get away from it all!' The property as a whole is a large, old, renovated olive mill, complete with the original pressing stones. Although situated in a rural setting we are only 45 minutes from the fabulous city of Cordoba, and only 30 minutes from a water park(open mid June to the end of August). Even Seville and Granada are only a 2 hour drive.
We provide a 3 bedroom apartment which will sleep up to 6 people, which is ideal for families, there is a large terrace overlooking one of our alpaca paddocks and there is also a BBQ. There is a large 8 x 4 metre swimming pool with decked surround, parts of which are shaded in the mornings by a large eucalyptus tree and in the afternoon by the Casita . The property is powered by solar power only, so it truly is a chance to relax, although there is Freesat TV service, it is not the place to come and watch TV all day. Whilst here you can forget the email and the mobile phone, and just listen to the sounds of the countryside.
We also live on site, and run a small Alpaca farm, so there is the opportunity for children to help with feeding the animals and even take an Alpaca for a walk, should they so wish(although not in July or August, due to the heat). We also have dogs on site which you are welcome to meet and interact with and there are also cats and kittens on the farm. Please feel free to email us for further information.

Lorna and I purchased the Olive Mill in 2008 to escape our run of the mill life in the UK. We moved here to start a farm breeding alpacas. I am the author of two books about our life here, Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca? and Seriously Mum, Where's that Donkey?
We live off grid, and all our power is generated by solar panels. Although this means we do not have any central heating or airconditioning our way of life is much more basic and less materialistic than our previous life in the UK.This is a great chance to get the kids out in the fresh air and away from the television and the Xbox!
Our home is truly a once in a lifetime experience holiday. If you are looking for a run of the mill package deal, and to lay on the beach surrounded by people, this is not the holiday for you.
If you are looking for somewhere the kids can be safe, and experience new things, peace and quiet and investigate 'real' Spain, then maybe this could be the place for you.
