El Molino del Conde, Andalucia
from £447 /night help
Villa | 10 bedrooms | sleeps 20
El Molino del Conde is a large country house set in big gardens amidst the tranquil hills and olive groves of rural Andalucia near the lovely lake Iznajar. The house is a beautifully restored mill building where all generations can enjoy family holidays or celebrate Christmas, special birthdays and anniversaries in the sun. (The house can sleep 10, 16, 20+)
For those wishing to explore Andalucia, El Molino del Conde is ideally located as the house is less than an hour from Granada and Malaga and central for trips to Cordoba, Seville and Ronda.
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.
The house has been lovingly restored to retain all the character of the big old cortijo 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. Because you might want a night off from cooking or would like dinner ready when you arrive home from a trip, catering is also available.
Outside, you'll find fresh eggs from El Molino del Conde's chickens, fresh herbs from the kitchen garden, pomegranate, fig, peach, almond and walnut trees, sun terraces, private swimming pool, large shaded dining areas, picnic spots next to the stream, a vine-covered courtyard and large private grounds where children can run around safely.
As well as 3 acres of gardens, El Molino del Conde also has a multi-sports court - a 3/4 size tennis court also suitable for badminton and volleyball - and a heated indoor studio for pilates, yoga, indoor cinema and art classes. Locally there is walking, cycling and horse riding and we can arrange visiting massage and beauty therapists.

"Wonderful. So relaxing."
A beautiful house and garden. We loved the pool, the kittens, the location and the house itself. Probably a few too many steps for anyone with mobility issues, and we had to keep a close eye on our toddler, but apart from that it was a great place to stay for our big family get together. I loved the fact that even after a week's stay, I kept coming across new little shady spots and places to sit and admire the views.

"Brilliant house for a big party"
Stayed here with family (16 of us, ranging from 1y/o to 70y/o) and it was great. Lots of choice of rooms, places around the garden to eat / sit / relax in the sun or in the shade. Not too far from town, although you'll need a car, and other places to explore in the area. House was clean and comfortable, pool area was fab and Kimberley made sure any issues were dealt with straight away. Would thoroughly recommend this house for a big party.

"Fantastic holiday which the whole family really enjoyed"
We holidayed at El Molino with the whole family of 18 aged between 70 plus down to 9 year old twins with various ages in between. The location and accommodation couldn't have been better and really suited our needs.
The older grandchildren enjoyed the use of the tennis/badminton court and the pitanque area while the whole family enjoyed the use of the pool and surrounding seating areas with plenty of shade and sunbeds for those wishing to sunbathe.
We all really enjoyed being able to use the outside area for partying as well as eating, many members appreciated the music facilities and the outside fridge.
Some of our group had a lovely time feeding the kittens in the morning and collecting eggs from the hens and feeding the ducks.
The whole area is delightful and very comfortable; we would really recommend it for a group wishing to hold a celebration or just a get together with like-minded friends. The hosts Nick and Amanda couldn't be more accommodating.
Altogether a place we would all like to return to at some time in the not too distant future!
