Holiday Rental House
The Mill is a truly unique property, a wonderful rural retreat set in its own private “barranco” (valley), surrounded by over a hectare of mature woodland and a constantly flowing river cascading down through the finca forming numerous natural pools which are perfect for cooling down in the heat of summer. The Mill house itself offers spacious accommodation over 3 levels and has been carefully restored over several years, retaining much of its rustic charm – the old mill workings and grinding stones are still there – while attention to detail is evident everywhere. Each of the 3 ensuite bedrooms have their own external entrances – one down beside the river, and the other two leading from a “tinao” – a feature of Alpujarran/Berber architecture which connects separate rooms. But the star of ...The Mill is a truly unique property, a wonderful rural retreat set in its own private “barranco” (valley), surrounded by over a hectare of mature woodland and a constantly flowing river cascading down through the finca forming numerous natural pools which are perfect for cooling down in the heat of summer.

But the star of the show is water – the river, three fountains keeping the air cool, and of course, the swimming pool and hot tub. We think The Mill will be a favourite for families and groups of friends who want to chill out in absolute privacy and wonderfully calming, tranquil surroundings.

What a very special place The Mill is! If you’re after total seclusion, peace and to be immersed in nature then this is the place to be. As the Mill itself is nestled down in a steep valley, there are steps from it along a...More

About the neighbourhood
Juviles is a 15 minute walk from The Mill, with a good bar serving tapas and meals. Small grocers are in Berchules (5 minutes by car), or Carrefour Express in Cadiar, the local market town.
Getting around
We always recommend hiring a car to get the best out of La Alpujarra and the wider region.
