The Mill in Spain

The Mill in Spain – a retreat for runners, cyclists, triathletes & outdoor enthusiasts. Situated at the foot of the Sierra de los Filabres mountain range it is accommodation for groups who want adventure. With the mill oozing character, in a secluded spot with spectacular scenery all around, securing your own adventure is a must, whether you seek that yourself or use our local English guide to help you.

The mill has 5 bedrooms (we have additional accommodation nearby) with twin beds (doubles can be supplied on request), an inside and outside lounge area, dining area, sun terraces and away from the noise, hustle and bustle of regular life! Come to us if you are looking for accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere with countryside waiting to be explored on foot, bike or vehicle, but not if you are looking for the crowded costa resorts. 

We have mountain bikes on site. Personal friends nearby have additional apartment accommodation and their own swimming pool and Jacuzzi so after a day of exertion and fun you could relax by their pool or go back to the Mill for one of the outside ‘chill out’ areas!

You could either book the accommodation for your own exclusive use, or you can let us know the sort of things you’d like to do and we can sort it out for you.

We all want good stories to tell the grandchildren, but we need to make them happen. We want to help you create your own ‘edge of the seat’ story by providing you with exclusive accommodation to your group, self-contained or with meals provided at a very, very affordable price. The best experiences in life don’t need to cost a lot of hard earned cash, we don’t spend money advertising, our intention is to give you such an experience you tell all your friends! You’ll be greeted by friendly ‘real’ people who are focused on your experience and you’ll be in a part of Spain with never ending mountain ranges to explore by foot, bike or motor vehicle, a huge lake nearby, the Sierra Nevada and Europe’s only desert (at the moment!!) within a couple of hours by vehicle.

Many idyllic Spanish villages are within striking distance so you can experience traditional Spanish culture and relaxed pace of life. Our website will be launched soon, but in the meantime, if you ‘like’ our facebook page we will keep you informed of progress: https://www.facebook.com/.../The.../743249422393747...
