A fabulous old grain mill that dates back to before the 16th century that has been lovingly restored into a wonderful family home with character and charm. The buildings unique character has been emphasised in its re-design, combining traditional with contemporary; a glass window in the floor downstairs sheds light on how the mill functioned and clever lighting highlights the columns and the archways stonework. Other original features from its milling past have also been preserved, its metre-thick walls and flag stone tiles, which help to ensure that El Molino is wonderfully cool even at the height of summer.

This stunning property is in a truly inspirational setting on a private organic cattle and cork estate (1000 acres) within the Parque Natural de los Alcornocales, yet at just a short drive from the famous beaches of the Costa de la Luz (& Tarifa) and their magnificent wild oceanic scenery with Morocco as the backdrop!

The downstairs is of a large open-plan design with vaulted ceilings that encompass the state-of-the-art modern kitchen with its enormous silestone work surface and breakfast bar. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with enough to satisy even the most accomplished cook; its six-hob range cooker and American style fridge/freezer/ice-machine make this an ideal setting to capitalise on some of the fantastic local produce (Algeciras market is a one-off, with the best in Mediterranean and Atlantic fish in the area, not to mention the plethora of Moroccan delicacies) or even for trying the home grown organic beef! Beyond the kitchen is the dining area and where better to feast than off the wild olive dining table. The sitting room's focus is the huge log fireplace, with its plump sofas, chaise long and large brown leather arm chair.

Downstairs there is one double bedroom ensuite with its own Moroccan- style wet room. The other bedrooms are all upstairs – the master bedroom is the largest of the bedrooms, with a super kingsize bed; in August one needs only reach out the window to pick some of the delicious figs from the tree! The other bedrooms include one smaller double bedroom, a twin children's bedroom (both with trundle pull out beds, so this room can sleep 4), two single children bedroom, all with splendid wooden beamed high-ceilings complete with roof fan. There are two bathrooms upstairs; the 'white' bathroom that has been decorated with Tarifa beach shells and has a large bath, twin antique sinks and a walk in shower. The second bathroom has a bath/shower and is ideal for the children.

The garden is out the back of the house on the entreplanta, it looks as though it goes on for as far as the eye can see, as the lush lawn tumbles away into the farms pastures where the long- horned Retinto red cattle graze and the storks nest and clack. The rear terrace will be enlarged for 2014 with large banquet style wooden table and benches, ideal for entertaining and for protection from the midday sun, and serviced by the industrial size stainless steel Weber barbecue!

The garden is very child friendly with a huge sand pit area for the children, a hammock in the wild olive tree, a trampoline and a table tennis table. There is also a climbing frame with slide, playhouse and two swings and a trapeze. (Toys can be left for guests use on request).

Spanish country living can be experienced first hand, tucked away here deep in the countryside, yet at just 20km from the nearest airport and 3,5km to the nearest town. There is plenty to do both on the farm and nearby. The farm boasts stunning walks that include a visit to its own Moorish thirteenth century look out tower, fishing in the reservoir, feeding the chickens and the horses. There are excellent opportunites for bird watching as the farm sits below the bird migration route to and from Africa. Tarifa and the beaches of the Costa de la Luz are a 20km drive with endless opportunities for watersports. Sotogrande also 20km away has plenty of activites on offer, including polo, sailing, tennis and not to mention golf - there are 25 quality golf courses close by too.
