El Molino Santisteban | Scenic B&B in the heart of Andalusia

Unique stay in a rural setting, near the village of Guaro

Upon your arrival at El Molino Santisteban, you will be warmly welcomed by Gerard and Madeline. A couple that years ago, said goodbye to their hectic life in the Netherlands, packed up their kids and with much love and dedication, turned an old watermill into a holiday rental filled with atmosphere. Madeline will see to it that you return to a clean and crisp room every day. A delicious breakfast awaits you in the morning and upon request, a fine dinner will be cooked for you on site.

The hotel lies adjacent to an old watermill; it is a lovely, regal house with a rustic atmosphere. Six spacious rooms divided over different levels, surround a small patio. Another highlight is the vast space that surrounds the house. The lavish garden borders on a meandering stream, the swimming pool has loungers and a colorful bath house, there are plenty of terraces and seating areas, all of it framed by beautiful views over the rural landscape.

Children are more than welcome. El Molino is a voyage of discovery for smaller guests; the orchards, the river where they can build huts and rafts, the trampoline, the swing, the games and the company of other children. Outside of the holiday season, El Molino becomes a sanctuary of tranquility, the ideal base for exploring the diversity of Andalusia.

Location El Molino

B&B El Molino Santisteban is ideally located at only a 45-minute drive from the airport of Malaga, allowing you to leave mass tourism behind and enter the authentic green hinterland of Andalusia. If you want to spend a day at the beach, you will find bustling beaches within a mere 25 minutes by car.

Near El Molino lies the Sierra de las Nieves NP. This national park is not yet well known to the public, but it possesses a wonderful natural landscape, with many well marked hiking trails. From El Molino you can walk alongside the river into the hills, toward villages like Guaro and Aloizana.

Nice activities in the area:

  • Gerard and Madeline are active hikers; they own many detailed hiking maps and can inform you about the possibilities. Just ask for a lunch package and make it into a great day trip.
  • The neigbor from across the street owns a horse riding school with well groomed horses. He organizes horseback riding trips along the river or through the orchards, varying from half an hour to half a day. Young horse riders can have a ride in the riding range.
  • At a distance of 45 minutes by car, you will reach the Ardales lake, where you can canoe and water bike.
  • The area is very suitable for bicycle rides by mountain bike or race bike. The NP has marked routes. Another pleasant outing is a trip from village to village via quiet trails and paved roads. Bicycles are for rent in the village.
  • In case you are a golf lover, there are plenty of possibilities in the vicinity; one of the best options is the Alhaurin Golf Club.
  • Real action fans can get their kicks inside the National Park. There are many caves and waterfalls that are very suitable for river descents and cave explorations.
  • Closer to the house you will marvel at the many water bird species like kingfishers, nightingales, booted eagles and vultures. A turtle family and a bunch of otters are other quaint inhabitants of the area around El Molino

Madeline and Gerard are both very hospitable. The dinner was superb and the breakfast was fine as well. Dinner could possibly be a bit more varied. Nevertheless, we really had the feeling of being welcome. If you want to be helped, they help you, if you want to be more on your own, you can rest and relax. In addition, they are very nice to the children! Madeline could have been straight out of a starred restaurant! Actually there is nothing negative to say. Everything was neat and clean, the rooms are cleaned daily and the towels are changed daily as well. Also the WIFI worked excellent!

Beautiful location, great hospitality, nice rooms 100% recommend if you are looking for a unique vacation destination
