About the property

The ECO B&B el molino del abuelo is n Oasis of tranquility sourrounded by forest and mountains. After years traveling those two brothers wanted to open a place, 'el molino del abuelo',that combines what they love the most when they travel. The confort and privacy of having your own space, yet being in a meeting place, in which if you want you can meet the locals You will more than welcome to join us to get to know the area in depth, we love to hung out with our guest, sharing experiences, learning from each other( spending time by the fire place having an interesting chat, enjoying a cup of tea at the garden, going for mushroom picking,... so much to do here Before than a bussines we are to great guys who love people. Our goal is to give a very personalise treatment to our visitors/friends. Where we will be sharing our life and property with you. El molino del abuelo does not want to be a place to crush rather a place to fulfil our need of being sourrounded by beauty by nature. As an old refurbished Water mill house,the water is an esential part of our life, feeding our Organic veg garden, winding here and there giving life to houndreds of plant and flowers everywhere.

We want you feeling home, we don't like the feeling of being in a hotel, just in a room so we have kitchen, lounge areas, reading areas, gardens, Andalusian patios, terraces, balconies, roof-pool to feel home to meet people and have a chat, or to enjoy a meditation lead by the sound of the water(always around us), or have a siesta lying on a hammock

El molino del abuelo it's so close to the concept of art, decoration, over the years we have been building this little paradise where each corner has their own soul . Each of our rooms is dedicated to a local flower our prices(60-70 euros for room/day). For us Nature and the respect for the Mother is everything, the principles of Permaculture are our guide always trying to improve, to be more sustainable, more environmentally friendly.

El molino del abuelo is located in Montecorto a very small community, surrounded by Natural Parks,(forest, water, wildlife) makes it a fantastic place:

to go hiking(plenty of self-guided tracks

If you like road cycling or mountain biking, that is the place we have so many tracks, single tracks, some of the most scenic roads in Andalusia.

Bird watching in the Sierras is becoming more and more popular thanks to the large communities of bird of pray that share our forest and mountains with us.

During the summer rivers and a huge lake host adventurous activities where we can get a bit of a kick of adrenaline.

El molino del abuelo loves to host and organize workshops, retreatments. Please contact us and we will try to make it happen

We hope to meet you soon

About raul

We are two brothers hardcore travelers who decided that life is to be lived in the best way you can or you know and for us to be in a small village surrounded by Nature with the sound of the water around us with an sky with eagles, vouchers and other hundreds of birds. With forest where we can pick up mushrooms and have it grilled with friends. It´s difficult to give a description of yourself isn´t it I would say that we are 2 man with a good heart.

raul purchased this hotel in 1929

Why raul chose Montecorto

This property was the water mill-house of my grandfather and when he passed away we decided that we could transform keeping all the soul into a magic place and that is what we did. We have Sawday´s seal of approval

('An inventively decorated village house - fun murals, recycled furniture - with stunning views, colourful courtyards and immense peace.

The welcome tea and home-made cakes, the hotch-potch of patios, the quirky furnishings, the next-door allotment – this is a family home. Originally the flour-miller's house – on a steep lane off the tiny square of this enchantingly pretty, lively village – grandsons Raul and Florentino have converted it with flair and fun. Traditional stone outside, interiors are bright, cool and uncluttered. The beamed, open-plan living area has a reclaimed wood table, Moroccan rugs and crackling chimenea; immediately relaxing. A well-planned kitchen means you can cook supper if you fancy a change from the homely village eateries. Super-fit Raul – his breakfasts are very healthy or very Spanish; produce from their allotment – can advise on recipes and local produce. White bedrooms, with stunning views of rooftops and mountains, are bright with hand-painted furniture, quirky murals and colourful duvets. Most have balconies, one a terrace. Two big bathrooms are inventive yet slick. Swim, kayak, bird-watch, hike; relax under fruit trees in colourful patios or in the roof-top plunge-pool. Charming, thoughtful owners; restful vibes')

What makes this hotel unique

A new way of tourism more sustainable, more human. In one of the most amazing places in the South of Spain. If you are searching for an Oasis to scape from the fast outside World come to visit us.

Due to this quite enviroment, close to a retreatment, that we try to provide to our guest we have a a no-child policy. Children need to be children (playing, messing around, being noisy, discovering....) and we dont want to be the badies saying please be quite!, becareful with this peace of art( the house is a vrey delicated place with details and art everywhere) because we have other clients who came looking for an Oasis of quiteness . We believe that is very important and necesary to have touristic places with an identity so when we go we know that we will get what we are looking for.That is el molino del abuelo "water-mark"

Car: recommended

-One of the gates leads to the reserve biosphere of Grazalema’s Natural Park, one of the few places in the world where you can see the majestic Pinsapo pine tree.

-We are truly in a hiking paradise, whether you want a guided tour or to go it alone. Surrounded by mountains and forest and a huge lake, with one of the best climates in Europe. We can really please everyone.

-The remarkable archeological of Acinipo. A very well preserved Roman amphitheatre on the top of a hill with jaw-dropping views of Sierra de Las Nieves Natural Park

-If you are planning to come over the summer don’t be scared. We have a pool on the terrace – you won’t believe the views! The council pool is just a 2 minute-walk from us and on top of that, there’s a wonderful lake just 8km from the property.

-We’re in a great location, 20km from Ronda with buses running daily. An hour from the Malaga coast, less than 2 hours from Sevilla. It’s the perfect

-Enotourism, from Montecorto (where we are) to Ronda via a very scenic road, a wine route with small eco wineries. The perfect place to try our local wines.
