Charming, ecologically sustainable, refurbished water mill. Power is produced with a water turbine and solar panels, a great example of 'green' living. When possible, organic produce is harvested from the garden and guests are welcome to share its produce.
The spacious master bedroom is furnished with a generous four poster double bed. You will share the house with the owners, but there are two bathrooms, a huge kitchen and plenty of space.
An ideal place for some rest and relaxation, it is well known to my friends as a place to come and relax and recharge ones batteries. The peace and quiet of the area, the tree-shaded garden, and the cool river makes it an oasis even in the hot days of summer. The Zahara reservoir is ten minutes away, offering swimming, kayaking and water activities.
The Mill is situated in the Ribera de Grazalema, ideal for hiking and outdoor pursuits in the Sierras de Grazalema and Cadiz. It is also surrounded by the iconic White Villages, such as Grazalema, Algodonales, El Gastor and Zahara.
The area offers a diverse selection of outdoor activities including Canyoning, Cycling, Rock climbing, Caving, Paragliding, Hang Gliding, Canoeing, Walking, Mountain biking, Horse riding, Bird watching, etc. etc. There are two local outdoor pursuit companies: Al Qutun http://www.al-qutun.com/index.cfm?languageID=gb in Algodonales - located about 15km from my house; and Horizon Grazalema http://www.horizonaventura.com/ - which is about 9kms away.
We have one cat that lives outside and is very peaceful.

Staying at Mike's place was a wonderful experience for me and my girlfriend. The house has everything to offer and is the perfect match if you want to find calm and relaxation in the middle of nature. Ronda and Grazalema are 15 min away with the car. If you love nature and hiking, there is no doubt Mike's house is the best place to stay at.
