This ancient mill dating from the 16thC has bundles of original charm: rooms, a reception area and a swimming pool have been added with skill and good taste. It's located in the Sierra Natural Park, and you get sweeping views of olive and cork tree groves. Wild pigs and goats roam nearby, and the place has a natural, earthy atmosphere. The owner, Luca, can arrange for you to explore this beautiful countryside on horse back, on foot or by car.
Although the food is OK - simple and hearty - you'd do better to eat in the nearby town of Cazalla de la Sierra, which has some lovely little restaurants that serve tapas, and you might even stumble across some live music if you're lucky.
The bedrooms are unremarkable, but cheery enough and perfectly comfortable, with good sized bathrooms. All of the rooms have little kitchen areas; some of the studios and suites have balconies where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner whilst drinking in the view.
