Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cottage in Casabermeja - Mill Cottage Torcal Vista
2 en suite bedrooms, sleeps 4
Mill Cottage is 30 minutes from Malaga in rural Andalucia. Casabermeja and Villanueva de la Concepcion, traditional small towns with bars, restaurants and shops are under ten minutes away by car. The house is a converted olive mill with beamed ceilings, terracotta tiles and an original feel to it. It also has air-conditioning in the two bedrooms, central heating and a large heated pool. Visitors usually comment on how comfortable the beds are. In fact the whole house is comfortably but not over-fussily furnished. Both bedrooms are en suite, one with WC, bath and shower and one with WC, bidet and shower. The beds can be arranged as singles or doubles as required. The kitchen, our guests have told us, is unusually well equipped. As well as satellite TV there are plenty of books, games and DVDs. Mill Cottage is an excellent base for relaxing, swimming, walking, cycling, bird watching and exploring Andalucia. Malaga is within easy reach, and there are fast road connections to the beaches of the Costa, Marbella, Granada, Cordoba and Ronda. Traditional hill-top white villages such as Almogia and Comares are also easy to get to.
The house has a large private terrace where you can relax, have a barbecue and enjoy the views of the mountains and the spectacular El Torcal Natural Park. This terrace looks down on the pool, a generous 10 x 5 metres and heated when necessary. There are large sunshades and plenty of room for sunbathing. We can provide a key to the pool gate for guests with small children. The whole area is, in fact, very child friendly and there are some toys and a paddling pool available. There is plenty of space around the house for children to play in and explore. From the lower terraces you can go through the gardens and wander down the track to the river to listen to the frogs and find the turtles. You might also see egrets, herons and, if you are lucky, a couple of eagles. You can walk on from there into the surrounding hills.
A full information pack is provided. This includes everything you need to know about the house itself and local information such as bars, restaurants, shops, supermarkets and local activities. There are some excellent walks which start from the house, and details of these are provided. We can also drop you off or pick you up. We also have two adult mountain bikes for hire. Horse riding and rock climbing are available locally and there are golf courses in Malaga and Antequera. Antequera is not well known but it is an attractive city with a Moorish castle, many fine churches and a famous bull ring. If you want to go further we provide information and maps of nearby tourist centres such a Granada, Seville, Cordoba, Ronda, Marbella and Malaga.
Mill Cottage is ideal for a visit at any time of the year.

Feel as though we have only scratched the surface of this part of Spain. Kathy, Neil, Bethan, Julia and Michael
We had not expected the area to be so beautiful with mountains, grassy plains, meadows awash with spring flowers and superb views from winding mountain tracks. Antequera and and Almogia were stunning and further afield we loved Ronda and Granada. Vanessa, Stuart, Molly and Lucy
