Something to discover for everyone
The Mill is based in the spectacular UNESCO registered Cabo de Gata Nature Reserve which has so much for you to discover. It is the largest protected ecological area of the Mediterranean Sea. Nature lovers, wildlife watchers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, budding historians or geologists? There is something for everyone. There is an abundance of breath-taking mountain walks, biking, scuba diving, kayaking, kite surfing, sailing, and horse riding on local beaches. With so much on offer, you will be spoilt for choice. What is so refreshing is that Cabo de Gata has no mass tourism or high rise hotels.
There are a host of interesting places that are a short drive from the Mill. You can visit the abandoned gold mines of Rodalquilar, the botanical gardens, the caves of Sorbas, or the lighthouse of Cabo de Gata. Take a drive along the coastline and walk down to untouched beautiful beach coves. See the famous unspoilt beach of los Muertos or the popular beach towns of las Negras, Agua Amarga, San Jose or the spectacular sweeping beach of Genoveses.
If you are here in late July or early August you can go and see the Flamingos on the salt flats of Las Salinas in all their glory! View the cacti botanical garden and Mariposario (butterfly park) of Nijar. While you are there browse the shops for the Jarapas, (traditional rugs) ceramics or hand crafted woven products made from the local esparto grass; all traditional artisan crafts of this area. Visit the old hill top village of Mojacar a Moorish town with quaint white washed houses, narrow windy streets, gift shops, restaurants and outstanding panoramic views. This buzzy, lively town is definitely worth a visit on a warm summer evening.
We have five rooms and space for around 11 people based on sharing or 10 with one double room/single occupancy.
Retreat guides can be provided with separate accommodation if required.
