Our walking holiday was very well organised by Peter Jan and Monica taking us through beautiful countryside full of spring flowers and birdsong.

The casita at Molino Rio Alajar was comfortable and colourful. Peter Jan and Monica did everything to make us feel welcome. When we arrived the fridge was full of everything we might have wanted and more. We had asked for a meal to be provided on our first evening and it was delicious.

PeterJan and Monica had arranged for us to walk from their hotel to two others, both excellent. It was a really great holiday and we recommend it highly.

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), but there was a warm welcome from a family friend, which was cheerfully maintained throughout our 3 night stay.

Well researched walks and guidance available, with dogs to guide/ join you for some real treks. Makes a perfect base. If we go again, we will take some detailed maps.

Torches lent for the 20 minute walk to nearest village and supper. The pool is freezing ( mountain water) and facilities fairly laid back/some work in progress.

There is some extra- ordinary good restaurants scattered across isolated villages, so worth research.

Highly recommended destination

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 stayed in Zoya, our home from home. Over the years we have seen those small changes and watched the trees around it grow and offer increasing shade. The dogs are all still there and this year we had the pleasure of a rather cheeky cat that stole and unguarded sandwich!

The walks still attract us and the bird watching is always interesting. The nice thing about going back to a place that you love is that you can just chill which is what we did!

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 the children walk :-)
But beware this is "infectious": we now also have a dog at home.
Go visit an Ibérico farm!

If you love being in a beautiful quiet area then this is the place for you
The hiking is great -Peter has good maps and is very helpful about recommending hikes, restaurants and everything you might want to do
Tennis court is good
It is slightly remote and a bit of a walk into town - maybe 15 minutes- but it was enjoyable and adventurous
Bring a flashlight and sturdy shoes
