Fabulous Molino Spain
Cabin in Andalucia, Spain
Property Details of Andalucia Cabin
Winner of Huelva Province Tourism Award 2002 and accredited as "Quality Accomodation" by the Tourist Boards of Andalucia and Spain
In the mountains northwest of Sevilla, you will find Molino Rio Alájar. It boasts five cabins, all beautifully appointed with modern amenities, yet they retain the rustic charm and tranquility that sets you back to another age. This is where you should come to relax, recharge and enjoy this small slice of heaven.
Some years ago, Peter Jan and Monica bought an old ramshackle water mill and over the next years they restored it, built five top quality cabins and at the same time went to all the flea markets, auctions and antique stores in the province of Huelva, Spain. There they collected everything. Old locks, antique delft tiles, barber chairs, wine presses, anything that would add to the magic that is the Molino.
You have your own cabin, but it is fun to gather in the communal house and chat with the other guests, make a pot of soup for all to enjoy, study the guide books and maps of the area, or just enjoy the fireplace and scratch the dogs ears while sipping a locally made acorn liqueur. You can pick vegetables from the garden and firewood for the fireplaces and the outdoor grill is provided free of charge.
Guests are welcome to bathe in the pool (5m X 11m) under the beautiful oak trees.
The two larger houses sleep 4 - 6 people. Each one has a large sitting-room with an open fireplace. The kitchen has a gas stove and electric oven, refrigerator and a good selection of cook ware, cutlery and earthenware. The bathroom is downstairs. There are four single beds in the loft upstairs. To the side of the house and with a separate entrance, a bedroom with a double bed and en suite bathroom completes the accommodation. Both houses have a terrace for dining alfresco.
The two smaller houses are studios with two single beds, wood-burning stove, small refrigerator and an en suite bathroom. Each has a small terrace on the side. All the houses have under floor heating, telephone and television.
The proeprty also offers a small garden of local delicacies, that you are welcome to enjoy. And with all the animals around, the kids can almost have a patting zoo.
Donkeys can be hired on an hourly basis for guided treks through the countryside. The Dutch owners of the Molino have a sound knowledge of the area and detailed walking routes and itineraries are available.
A babysitter is available at 5? per hour.
Typical regional meals can be ordered from the Restaurant "El Corcho" for delivery or take-away. Menus are in the houses.

Local Area DetailsJust a 15 minute walk from the Molino, past craggy cork oaks, you will find the small (836 souls) village of Alájar. There are several bars and restaurants here. We think one stands out as truly unique. It is Mesón "El Corcho." You must not cheat yourself out of this treat. Go to the bar (you will become a local right away)and have a drink or two. Be curious about the local liqueurs and they will gladly let you taste each and every one. Be careful of the locally made potato chips though. They are addictive!
Corcho means cork and please notice the ceilings and walls. They are all hand carved cork sculptures by local artists. The floor in the restaurant was hand laid. It took a year. Have loads of the delicious ham. The pigs are acorn fed, which gives the ham a special flavor. You will notice the hams hanging everywhere. You will not find anything quite like this anywhere
The village of Alájar with many tapas bars and four excellent restaurants, where you can sample locally produced jamón and fresh seafood. Nearby attractions include La Peña de Arias Montano, the Sierra de Aracena Natural park with many hiking and horse-riding trails, the famous Aracena living limestone Cavern and the Río Tinto Mining museum.
The famous underground caves of Aracena are only 10 minutes drive.
The Parque Natural Sierra de Aracena y Picos de Aroche is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Criss-crossed with ancient paths, some dating from Roman times, the area is a green oasis even during the hot Andalusian summer. The Molino is an ideal point from which to explore this magnificent region
