MOLINO LA RATONERA rural accommodation


Our unique and charming private estate features two watermills, a 16th-century mill tower and a 20-foot-high waterfall, situated in a lush river valley. Located in the northwest of the province of Granada, in the heart of the rural interior of Andalusia. Next to the river and the waterfall is the old water mill from 1894, here are the bar, the reception and our private accommodation.

There are also six independent accommodations on the property, all of them restored with attention to detail, love and care. Andalusian charm has been preserved throughout the building and each property has its own private outdoor space. At the front of the property is the kidney-shaped ecological pool with terrace and sun loungers. In the lower water mill you will find a library and a gym.

Within easy reach of Granada, Malaga, Seville and Cordoba, the rural location provides a haven for wildlife and an excellent setting for hiking or bird watching. Despite its tranquility and isolation, it is the perfect vacation spot as it is well connected to the most popular cities in Andalusia and to the popular towns of Iznajar, Algarinejo and Zagra.
The ground floor of the Casa del Molino houses restored mill machinery and has a private bar for our guests. Outside the Casa del Molino there is a large paved patio and to one side is the original mill arch containing the restored mill wheel. This patio is shaded by two mature vines and here you will find a terrace with a built-in barbecue.
