Situated among wonderful mountain scenery in Southern Spain, amidst cork oak and chestnut forests, the cottages of Molino Rio Alájar provide a comfortable retreat in a unique Spanish setting. Pool, tennis court and gardens to relax in.  Charming holiday cottages in a rural and peaceful area.

General Info

There are six houses on site, each sleeping from two to five people, with terraces for outdoor dining in spring or summer and fireplaces for cozy winter evenings. A short walk from your cottage, along country lanes lined with stone walls, takes you to the pretty village of Alájar with its white houses and winding, cobbled streets. Some of the bars and restaurants stand out for their cosiness and character. High above the cluster of white houses towers la Peña de Arias Montano, a craggy cliff with a sixteenth century hermitage set on its peak.
