The house has been lovingly restored to retain all the character of the big old cortijo and ensure a high level of comfort. There are high beamed ceilings, comfortable bedrooms and large luxurious bathrooms. The big main kitchen is designed to make your self-catering holiday easier if you are a large group with restaurant-grade cooker, big fridge and a dishwasher - and there is a further family kitchen too. Because you might want a night off from cooking or would like dinner ready when you arrive home from a trip, catering is also available. Outside, you'll find fresh eggs from El Molino del Conde's chickens, fresh herbs from the kitchen garden, pomegranate, fig, peach, almond and walnut trees, sun terraces, private swimming pool, large shaded dining areas, picnic spots next to the stream, a vine-covered courtyard and large private grounds where children can run around safely. As well as 3 acres of gardens, El Molino del Conde also has a multi-sports court - a 3/4 size tennis court also suitable for badminton and volleyball - and a heated indoor studio for pilates, yoga, indoor cinema and art classes. Locally there is walking, cycling and horse riding and we can arrange visiting massage and beauty therapists. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: VTR/MA/0056More

Visit the local hilltop village of Iznajar with its ruined Moorish Alcazaba and the church of Santiago set above the large lake of the Embalse de Iznajar orsoak up the atmosphere in local towns such as Archidona, Montefrio and Antequera. There is beautiful local walking, cycling and horse riding and you can also visit El Torcal limestone natura...
