El Cortijo is one of four properties at Molino la Ratonera. a holiday retreat set in a watermill in a lush river valley. The location of this mill, in the heart of rural inland Andalucia, southern Spain, is within easy reach of Granada with the Alhambra and Albaicin, Malaga, Seville and Cordoba and yet its rural situation provides a haven for wildlife and an excellent environment for walking, birdwatching or relaxing.
We offer a choice of rental properties for short breaks or longer holidays of any duration on a self-catering basis.
El Cortijo is lovely old building used to be the home of the mill owner but had been derelict for 15 years. It has now been restored, retaining many of the original features to provide luxurious holiday accommodation for up to 6 guests in 3 bedrooms.
All the upstairs bedrooms have stunning views down the valley and have high, beamed ceilings. The master bedroom has an ensuite bathroom and on the same floor there is a further double bedroom, a twin and a full bathroom. Downstairs there is a well equipped kitchen, large sitting/dining room with a wood burning stove and a further room which is furnished to be used either as a television room or a further double bedroom allowing a maximum of 8 guests. The large private terrace is accessed from the kitchen.
Returning to the Mill for 2017 after a very successful season last year will be your hosts, Marc and Linda. They will be there to greet you upon arrival and will be available throughout your stay. If you need information regarding the mill or just finding your way around they will be more than happy to help. Marc and Linda will also be running the BBQ in the evening as well as the bar and entertainment. The BBQ will be casual with seating in the open courtyard. For the adults there will be local specialties such as Iberian pork which is delicious done on the BBQ and for the kids there will always be plenty of burgers and chicken. You can let them know what you like and they will do their best to accommodate you. When the mill is busy they like to put on entertainment in the courtyard. Marc does a fun and upbeat rockabilly and rock & roll show, performing live and playing guitar while you sit back and relax under the stars on the mill terrace.
