Family stay August 2019
The Olive Mill is a really special property - loads of space and a great location. Kids spent most of the time in the pool which was even bigger than it appears in the photos. Frequent trips were made into Montefrio which is a lovely town. Great bakery, butchers and fishmongers for perfect bbq ingredients and some lovely places to have a cold beer/meal. The Mill gave us just what we were after - there is a bit of road noise and the kitchen could do with a couple of sharp knives/ bigger cooking pots but otherwise the set up was perfect for us. For what you get, the price is really reasonable. The property is not high end luxury but much more informal and welcoming which is what you want for a bigger family group. We had a great time and huge thanks to Dermot
Thanks for the review. Its great that you enjoyed and appreciated The Mill. We know its a great property and its always wonderful to hear guests have enjoy their stay.
We have tried to make The Mill informal and welcoming, - exactly what holiday accommodation should be.
I was glad to be of help before you arrived, all helps with a happy stay.
Sharp knives it is ;-)
A very large villa with plenty of space and great facilities, including a pool and games room.
My family (across 3 generations) spent a week at the Olive Mill to celebrate my 50th in August 18. The rooms are all a good size and there's plenty of room to kick about in - there are two lounges, several terraces, a games room and of course, the pool (which the kids were never out of). There's enough dining space of at least ten people in lots of places - the kitchen, the restaurant style dining space and a couple of the outdoor terraces, which is where we normally ate (near the pool).
The villa is a good 15 minute trek into Montefrio - uphill on the way in but far easier on the way home. There are some lovely places to eat and shop, although Montefrio is not a big place and the siesta still rules, so all the shops shut from about 1pm to 4 or 5pm, so you need to get your timings right. I would recommend the road-train ride - well worth the 5 euro charge.
All in all we had a fantastic time and would love to return. The Olive Mill is a lovely place to stay and I would highly recommend it to others.
Thanks you for the review. We invest a lot of time and money to provide a great holiday experience. Great that you enjoyed your stay so much, hope you get chance to visit again, glad The Mill added to your birthday experience.
The property was set in a beautiful rural mountains it was everything we hoped for and more .
The villa is perfect for a large family holiday giving everyone there own space the kids we able to play and the adults relax .
We were let down with our car hire and Richard was amazing he took us shopping and dropped us to and from town he was so welcoming and even though his apartment was next door he did not bother us at all he only came in to do maintenance on the pool but always knocked and checked it was ok this villa is a must to vist it offers so much we had a fantastic holiday and will definitely be returning
Richard and dermot are amazing hosts and very friendly and helpful we can't thank them enough for helping us to have such a Fantastic holiday
I would recommend the olive villa it is truely a beautiful place
OMG ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT
We had a stay after my brother in law stayed last year and raved about the Mill. It was fabulous lived up to expectations and more. Great location, really big property with lovely swimming pool. We spent evenings eating outside overlooking the pool. Great evenings. We will be back. Must be best property in area and very reasonably priced for what you get.
Lovley place, very spacious and clean
I loved the property and would of liked to go back , but for us there was some negatives.we felt that we had no privacy as the owner was popping round all the time,not knocking but just letting himself in ,one morning at 6 am ,when most of us was still in bed,very unsettling. We also think it should be pointed out that the mill as not a lot of safety aspects for children or people unsteady on there feet.saying all of that there were many positives and worth a visit.
The only time that the owner / manager was in part of the property was to check the pool and to change bed linen and towels which was necessary for the enjoyment of the holiday as the guests were staying for an extended period. Access was only gained to the pool through the main Olive Mill and not the house which is secured seperate to the Mill - I would think no owner would be entering a house in the manner decribed let alone at 6am in the morning (when the owner / manager would not be out of bed anyway!!!!!!!) so this was not an issue and the comments are surprising. Perhaps the comments that have been left need to be read in conjunction with the other reviews. The photographs on the site are very clear and it is the renters decision if they feel that the property is suitable for children however children should be supervised at all times.
A fabulous location for a relaxing holiday. We had the whole mill to ourselves which gave us ample space for 3 families and room to spare. A sensitively converted building and the pool is idyllic. Montefrio is a wonderful town, a 'must' to explore. Richard made us exceptionally welcome.
Easy driving from Malaga or Granada airports. Montefrio is 45 minutes from Granada City. We supply comprehensive directions by email
The Mill is perfectly situated within walking distance to the Beautiful Historical town of Montefrio.Just a short 10 min walk leads you to the centre of Montefrio where you can enjoy local Tapas Bars and Restaurants and look at the Famous Round Church and Castle. All year round the town hosts various Fiestas including Flamenco and Religious events. The location of the Mill couldn't be in a better part of Andalucia, only 90 minutes away you can experience Malaga a fascinating City and only 45 minutes away from Granada, a really beautiful place to visit and also you could be skiing in the Sierra Nevada Skiing Resort. Take the coastal route and in 60 minutes you could be relaxing on a beautiful beach.
