We booked through MacAdventures and wasn't sure what to expect. Pleasantly knocked out by a thoughtfully crafted cottage, comfortable with some nice detail. A fridge was generously packed with breakfast goodies ( easily stretched to snack lunch) and a welcome bottle of wine can be augmented by an honesty bar. Owners were away ( which created some initial contact confusion),... More

I first reviewed Molino after our second visit back in 2012 and here we are again! However we have in fact been back twice before now and this is our fifth visit. So I think you can guess how much we love this place. The peace, tranquillity and friendship that we always find here keeps drawing us back. Again we... More

We stayed as a family with Monica and Peter Jan. They have created a little, charming paradise for nature lovers. There is plenty to do on location (tennis, pool, table tennis, chess, etc) but of course the well explained hiking trails in the vicinity will be entertaining. We always took one of the dogs with us - this also makes... More

We just enjoyed a truly wonderful week with our family of five (kids 12,10,8 yrs) in the stunning natural beauty of the Parque Natural Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche. The houses in the Molino Rio Alajar are private and very thoughtfully designed with tasteful and elegant traditional furnishings. Multilingual (Dutch) owners Peter Jan and Monica will help with...

The houses have everything you need, the area is quiet and peaceful and your hosts give you any information and support you need for... More

We really enjoyed our week in El Aguila recently, and our holiday was everything we wanted. Molino Rio Alajar is beautifully situated in a small valley and we were able to explore the pretty local countryside on foot straight from the front door using the hiking trails prepared by Peter. After all that exertion, it was lovely to have a... More

Plus Friendly hosts, lovely setting, friendly animals. Minus Terrible VERY NARROW road in, really nail biting, wing mirrors need to be pulled in and your breath. La Ciguena is NOT suitable for young children, very high and large gapped staircase with poor child gates. Ours broke on the first day.

Molino Rio Alajar is situated a few miles from the small town of alajar in the sierra aracena. It is a very beuatiful part of Spain, largely untouched by tourists. We were there in the middle of August and although hot it was still very pleasant, with green lawns and a decent swimming pool. There are a number of traditionally... More

Beautifully renovated cottages in a "shabby chic" style. Four adopted dogs who will steal your hearts (and your food), goat bells tinkering in the distance, donkeys braying for attention, this is an animal lovers delight. Big, fat Iberian pigs can be seen everywhere feeding off acorns. You can then go and eat them (the pigs, not the acorns) in the... More
