BFB's Overview

This stunning former 16th century grain mill has been converted into a cool, contemporary family home by its British owners who have cleverly combined the mill's architectural features with modern luxuries to create a stylish home away from home. Best of all, since the family who own it have several children, they have added fun touches for kids plus a host of toys, games and play equipment, as well has handy nursery gear, but in a way that takes nothing away from the original charm and contemporary feel of the house.


Molino de San Louis' unique character has been emphasised in its re-design, combining the traditional with contemporary. A glass window in the floor downstairs sheds light on how the mill functioned and clever lighting highlights the columns and the archways stonework. Other original features from its milling past have also been preserved such as its beautiful arched ceilings, metre-thick walls and flag stone tiles, which help to ensure that it is wonderfully cool even at the height of summer.

This stunning property enjoys a a truly inspirational setting on a private organic cattle and cork estate (1000 acres) within the Parque Natural de los Alcornocales, yet at just a short drive from the famous beaches of the Costa de la Luz and their magnificent wild oceanic scenery with Morocco in the distance, as the backdrop!


Accommodation Overview:
The downstairs is spacious and open-plan with stylish contemporary furnishings. The ancient arched ceilings are beautifully refurbished and compliment the modern lines of the state of the art kitchen complete with high spec silestone countertops and breakfast bar. The kitchen is extremely well equipped with enough to satisfy even the most accomplished cook including a six-hob, a range cooker and American style fridge/freezer/ice-machine, making it an ideal setting to work some culinary magic on the fresh local produce. The nearby Algeciras market is famous for having the best in Mediterranean and Atlantic fish in the area, not to mention the plethora of Moroccan delicacies, or even for trying the home grown organic beef. Beyond the kitchen is the dining areawith it beautifully made wild olive tree dining table. The lounge has a wonderful huge log fireplace, plump contempoary sofas, a chaise long and a large brown leather arm chair.

There's a lovely double bedroom on the ground floor, ideal for grandparents, with with its own Moroccan- style wet room. A further four bedrooms can be found upstairs.The master bedroom is the largest of the bedrooms, with a super kingsize bed - in August one needs only reach out the window to pick some of the delicious figs from the tree! The other bedrooms include one smaller double bedroom, a twin children's bedroom (both with trundle pull out beds to sleep a total of 4) and two single children bedrooms, all with splendid wooden beamed high-ceilings complete with roof fan. There are two bathrooms upstairs; the 'white’ bathroom that has been decorated with Tarifa beach shells and has a large bath, twin antique sinks and a walk in shower. The second bathroom has a bath/shower and is ideal for the children.

The garden is out the back of the house on the entreplanta, it looks as though it goes on for as far as the eye can see, as the lush lawn tumbles away into the farms pastures where the long- horned Retinto red cattle graze and the storks nest and clack. The rear terrace has a large banquet style wooden table and benches, ideal for entertaining and for protection from the midday sun, and serviced by the industrial size stainless steel Weber barbecue! The garden is very child friendly with a huge sand pit area for the children, a hammock in the wild olive tree, a trampoline and a table tennis table. There is also a climbing frame with slide, playhouse and two swings and a trapeze.

Please Note: a 175 Euro end of stay cleaning fee will be added to the rate. The house has a maximum capacity of 10 including infants.

Location Information

Although Molino San Luis enjoys a tranquil, rural setting, it is within easy reach of a host of facilities and attractions. the nearest airport is just 20mins away and the nearest town just 3.5km. Long sandy beaches are within 10minutes drive but for some of the most unspoilt and natural beaches in Spain, a trip to the coast west of Tarifia is not to be missed.

There's plenty for families to do in the area with a waterpark within a few minutes drive (special area for little children), an animal aprk a little further afield, the wild monkeys in Gibraltar and Whales and Dolphin spotting trips departing several times a day from Tarifa. Watersports enthusiasts will love the wild beaches west of Tarifa which are a mecca for windsurfing and kitesurfing. Gentler souls might prefer the more sheltered beaches along the coast towards Malaga, many of which are lined with beach clubs and seafood restaurants ranging from glitzy and glamorous to boho chic. Sotogrande also 20km away has plenty of activities on offer, including polo, sailing, tennis, horse riding and, of course, golf - there are 25 quality golf courses close by too.

Adventurous families might enjoy a day trip to Tangiers in Morocco. Day trips depart regularly from the port at nearby Tarifa and escorted tours are available.


Getting There: The villa is only 20mins drive from Gibraltar Airport or around 80mins from Malaga Airport. Car rental is essential.
