This is the second time my family and I have been to the Molino and this time was even better than the first. We stayed in Lillia's Pastia, having stayed in Escamillo's the first time. This apartment has more of a traditional moorish feel to it, with some lovely arches and an amazing raised bedroom which we loved. It has...

We recently visited Molino Del Carmen with a group of friends. In total 10 adults and 9 kids and had such a fantastic time I thought it deserved my first TA review. The Molino is a stunning whitewashed building and we all had our own self catering apartments which were beautifully designed in a local style with lush furnishings and...

OMG, we fell in love with this place. The rooms are decorated beautifully with taste, everything you need is included in the apartment, and every time you pass a window, the view takes your breath away. We were there in the spring, before the Semana Santa rush, and it was too cool to use the pool. Guess we'll just have...

We spent a really cracking fortnight here in September 2015 and was the first time we have been to Spain. We stayed in the Don Juan apartment which is spacious, comfortable and has everything that you might ever need (although if being picky, the Ikea cutlery and plates are a bit poor quality). Steve and Jan made our stay really...

We had a wonderful week at Molino del Carmen - staying in Smugglers suite. Facilities and decor are great and Steve and Jan, the managers, could not have been more helpful. They were there when you needed them and then discreetly out of the way. The old mill is a great place to stay, near to every thing important with...

We, my wife and 3 kids aged 17, 14 and 12 had a wonderful, relaxing time in this beautiful place in this delightful little town. Casa Carmen is very nicely decorated, with authentic features and very comfortable. We enjoyed the pool. We went to Ronda for the day which was a magnificent, 45 min drive away. The restaurant just up...

We fell in love with Guacin on a brief day visit from the coast almost twenty years ago - since then we have been back and stayed in the village six times. We have stayed in a variety of apartments, cottages and hotels but this our seventh trip was our 'Seventh Heaven'. Casa Carmen is the most beautifully appointed apartment...

Thank you so much for your lovely review! We just wanted to add that if staying in Escamillo's and you feel the staircase is a worry, we can install a baby gate at the top of the stairs. Apologies if this was not made clear. We hope to see you again one day! Kind regards, Pip

We just finished our week in the beautiul mountain town of Gaucin having spent a week at the Molino del Carmen. These appartments find the perfect balance of traditional Moorish influenced homes with a good amount of modern luxury. The pool area was a great place to relax and cool down during the day or just to sip a glass...
