Set in the tranquil hills and olive groves of rural Andalucia near the lovely lake Iznajar and with easy access to Granada, Malaga, Seville and Cordoba, El Molino del Conde is a large country house where all generations can enjoy family holidays or celebrate Christmas, special birthdays and anniversaries in the sun.
Rent El Molino del Conde as a large country cortijo (9/10 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms) - perfect for a big group of friends or a large family group - or rent part of the house giving you 5/6 bedrooms and the luxury of private use of the terraces, pool and grounds.
El Molino del Conde also provides a peaceful and inspiring venue for courses - which have recently included Creative Writing, Painting Holidays (Watercolour,oils and acrylic), Cookery vacations, fitness bootcamps and Pilates holidays.
El Molino del Conde has been lovingly restored to retain all the character of the big old mill house and ensure a high level of comfort. There are high beamed ceilings, comfortable bedrooms and large luxurious bathrooms. The big main kitchen is designed to make your self-catering holiday easier if you are a large group with restaurant-grade cooker, big fridge and a dishwasher - and there is a further family kitchen too.
Outside, you'll find fresh eggs from the chickens, fresh herbs from the kitchen garden, pomegranate, fig, almond and walnut trees, sun terraces, private swimming pool, large shaded dining areas, picnic spots next to the stream, a vine-covered courtyard, a sports court for volleyball, tennis and badminton and large grounds where children can run around safely.
We have had a wonderful Family Christmas week at your
superb property. The set up at El Molino del Conde suited our requirements perfectly for all ages--and we ranged from 12 to 74-- and we took advantage of all the facilities--the giant paella pan, the barbecue, the gym room, even the pool!! Kimberley and her husband could not have been more responsive to our requests when we needed help. We did the 'bar walk' and had lunch in Fuente del Conde and walked to Villanueva de Tapia by the old road. We had Boxing Day dinner at La Paloma where we were greeted like old friends and the food was excellent. We went to the Alhambra and Malaga - altogether it was
action packed!! Once again, very many thanks.
By car, El Molino del Conde is 45 minutes north of Malaga, 45 minutes west of Granada and only 5 minutes from Lake Iznajar.
From El Molino, you can walk up the valley between the olive groves to buy fresh vegetables from the local market in Villanueva de Tapia and enjoy tapas and fino in one of the bars.
Visit the local hilltop village of Iznajar with its ruined Moorish Alcazaba and the church of Santiago set above the large lake of the Embalse de Iznajar.
Seville, Granada, Cordoba, Malaga, Ronda, the sea and the mountains are all within easy reach.
