The conversion of this old mill has been accomplished with local expertise, smooth plastering and planked floors adding to the immaculate furnishings and the stylish feel – a change from the more usual beam and terracotta. Each lovely suite has an open fire for cosy winter stays; Indonesian beds, muslin drapes, lamps, chairs and tables add a touch of exotica. Bathrooms are generous.
An honesty bar, books and a vast collection of CDs add to the relaxed and laid-back feel. The focus is poolwards; beyond, groves of olives and the changing colours of the mountains – a lovely backdrop to your sundowner. Breakfast is continental: croissants, breads, hams, cheeses and yogurts – you won’t go hungry. If you opt for half board you get dinner too. Feast on Mediterranean dishes prepared principally from their organic orchard, and matched by fabulous Andalusian wines.
Yoga, Pilates, massages, cycling, walking and wine tours can be arranged.
