There was nothing to spoil this tranquiity. Robin was very generous and supplied more wood for the large living room fire as the evenings were getting chilly in October, the fire kept thenlarge bliving room warm. The Mill had everything we needed for our holiday and we feel very privilidged to have been able to stay in this magical place. We would have loved to stay longer and explore more of the area and would love to return.

We particularly enjoyed the private terrace where many hours were spent eating, drinking and reading. The gardens were a joy to wander around and we felt very well looked after by the owners. We were particularly grateful to the walking routes that were provided as they took us confidently into the mountains which we enjoyed. We were travelling by motorbike which added an element of excitement as the roads were spectacular to travel on! A great base for exploring the Alpujarras .
