Guest Reviews:

'Simply amazing. El Molino del Conde completely surpassed all expectations and was the perfect place for a large family of 17 adults and 8 children. The bedrooms were accurately described and were perfect for everyone. It was a very relaxing place to stay in and Nick and Amanda were such fun and so kind. We all loved it. ' (Mary-Jane)

'Superb venue, excellent hosts in Andalucia countryside. El Molino del Conde provided the perfect venue for our gathering of 18 friends and spouses to celebrate our 50th birthdays. El Molino is a beautiful property, carefully restored, with comfortable rooms and great amenities and facilities. Nick and Amanda were gracious hosts and were responsive, helpful and knowledgeable of the area which made our stay all the more pleasurable.' (Martha)

Guestbook comments from the owner

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.

Absolutely fantastic place. Authentic and charming

  • 5 of 5

A really special place. Nestled amid olive tree clad hills and surrounded by friendly, historic villages. The villa was delightful. Superbly equipped with masses of space. The local ladies who catered for our birthday celebration were amazing. The meal was fabulous and the manager Kimberely great. She met us and gave us a great overview and was on hand with advice whenever needed. Simply amazing. Quite simply, didn't want to leave. 12/10. Thank you

Perfect Trip to Spain!

  • 5 of 5

We rented El Mulino for my father's 70th birthday and had a wonderful time! The pictures of the house do not do it justice - it's an incredibly charming, special place that's both comfortable and authentic. I looked for a rental house for a long time and don't think I could have found one better for what we wanted --- room for a large group, quiet, Spanish style and in a beautiful setting. We also had Gracia (cook) come every night and I can't recommend her enough. It was so nice to go explore sites every day and come home to a perfect meal -- the best food we had in Spain. The house manager, Kimberly, is also outstanding and was very helpful with all of our requests and questions. I hope to come back again one day!

Fantastic spot and Wonderful hosts

  • 5 of 5

My family of 21 stayed at this beautiful villa in early May. We also rented another property nearby to make sure we were all comfortable. It was far better than we expected. The villa was spotless and fully equipped for a large group like ours. We have done these family trips many times in many countries and this one was the best of the lot. Nick and Amanda were wonderful hosts and made sure everything was just so.

We all would highly, highly recommend the El Molino del Conde for large group travel. Except that it is against the family trip rules, we would return in a heartbeat. I may have to get the rule changed.

Truly wonderful holiday in a location and house you'll never forget.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week with family and friends in august in this beautiful house.

El Molino has more than you could expect from a family holiday home. A spacious, beautifully presented home with character, in a stunning location, with so many personal touches (a huge library of books, toys for children, bird books for identifying the enormous variety of birds in the gardens, a treehouse, chickens who supply fresh eggs each day, herb garden, fruit trees (you should try the figs), well equipped kitchen, commercial grade cooker and fridge...and much more.)

It's a great property for large groups to scoailise together but still offers many quiet terraces for a peaceful escape and a quiet 5 minutes.

Nick and Mandy as hosts are incredibly knowledgable, able to direct your thinking to great walks, bike rides, drives, local towns, great restaurants and local culinary delights, the wonderful alhambra or mesquita in cordoba, They appear embedded in local life and are able to help you get the most out of your stay.

We couldn't recommend this house more highly, it's a truly stunning place and a holiday here will help you connect with everything that's good about Spain, Andalucia, family and friends.

A perfect place for the perfect civil ceremony!

  • 5 of 5

Lisa and I were searching for a place in Andalucia to hold our Civil Partnership with family and friends in Summer 2009 and came across El Molino Del Conde on the Internet. From the very first contact we made with Nick and Amanda they simply could not be more helpful. We told them what we were looking for and they answered all of our questions and more!

A few weeks later we visited El Molino for a day to double-check that it would fit our needs. Nick and Amanda provided us lunch, welcomed us with open arms, showed us all around the house and the surrounding area, and were incredibly helpful in providing plenty of information. From that point we knew our week would be special.

In the run up to our stay Nick and Amanda helped us pre-arrange food for the civil ceremony (from the local ladies in the village), a spanish guitarist (a local music teacher), and spa treatments. They even bought extra tables and chairs to ensure we had all that we would need.

Needless to say our week long stay with close family and friends and our special day, in particular, could not have been more wonderful and created a lifetime of memories. The beautiful and rustic mill and bakery accommodated us all perfectly. We spent days by the pool and evenings by the barbecue. The peace and tranquility just washes over you. The beautiful stream is a lovely spot to relax, and practice speeches in private!

The day of our civil ceremony was perfect. Nick and Amanda arrived early and helped us to set everything up, and stayed with us to ensure everything ran smoothly, and to help us celebrate. We have the most beautiful photographs of the day. We laughed, we cried, we danced and we loved every minute.

There are few places in this world, and even fewer people, who help you to create the most perfect memories. El Molino is that place, and Nick and Amanda are certainly the people. If you ever have an opportunity to go to El Molino, you must go! You will not regret visiting this most special of places.

The perfect spot for a celebration

  • 5 of 5

We rented El Molino del Conde as a group of 18 last summer to celebrate a 40th birthday. Not only was it a beautiful spot, nestling in the olive groves and hills of andalucia, with a good-sized pool, lovely bedrooms and an incredibly well-equipped kitchen - it was also the perfect place for a celebration, with several dining spots that could seat 20+ people and no near neighbours to annoy with our music! In fact, although a few of us ventured out for day trips to Granada and Cordoba, the majority of our group were content to stay at El Molino and just soak up the peace and atmosphere.

Though we took turns to cook (there are supermarkets within a short drive and the garage nearby for emergency supplies) we were delighted to take up the owners' offer of arranging for the "ladies from the village" to come over and cook us an authentic paella - it meant we could all relax and let them take over the kitchen. I can't remember exactly how much it cost, but it wasn't expensive - and they made a vegetarian version too.

Nick and amanda, the owners, have provided for all kinds of requirements - they put cots in the appropriate bedrooms (and advised on which bedrooms were best for young children as there are a couple of narrow steep staircases in the older buildings), they leave lots of advice in the house on everything from good waks locally, the best places to visit, and where all the games are kept (we played boules and badminton as well as holding diving competitions in the pool). They are there if you need them but are happy to leave you to be completely independant.

It's definitely a place I would choose to stay in again - just waiting for the next big birthday now!
