From Tom and Sally Hutchinson, UK
We had a lovely time, and got a lot more out of our holiday than we could have imagined. Our lack of Spanish made us feel vulnerable, and we were grateful for the help we were given, especially with the lovely restaurant in the next village, and the walking guide. Hope to be back again.
From Rita, Scotland
A brief note to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Molino. Peter and Monica have done a beautiful job constructing the houses out of reclaimed materials. The setting and houses are wonderful. Our thanks to them and to Val for organising our booking
From Ruth and Gilles Herold, France
Thank you for a lovely week. Kisses for Higo from all of us--the girls miss him badly. And warm greetings to Jose-Maria and the burras.
From Tony Santana, USA.
Thank you for assisting with the booking at the Molino,
I had a generally wonderful time there and so did Janice.
Everything was wonderful. I did not get to go to the beach at
Mazagon as I was ill, but I visited Cadiz ("Little Havana"
they call it), and the food there in the plaza across from the
church was great. Also enjoyed the Balcony of Europe in Nerja
much and Seville's Alcazar much. I also visited Malaga and
Cordoba's Mezuita of course. Very marvelous. However my
favourite place was undoubtedly the Molino and the patio deck.
It was grand. Janice also enjoyed the piano on our last
night as she plays a bit.
On the way back to Portugal we visited Merida and Evora
and that was great.
So thank you for making it a wonderful vacation for the both of us.
From Alexandra Finlay, UK.
We had an absolutely wonderful time in Alájar! Loved the
accommodation and the countryside was absolutely stunning -
we enjoyed numerous long walks. Not to mention the ham...!
Thanks again - we're definitely hoping to return to
the Molino in the future.
From José Antonio, Spain.
Ha sido magnífico, el entorno aislado de alcornoques y castaños
(sin coches), las casitas en las que nofalta detalle, y los propietarios
holandeses, Monica y Peter, quienes defienden la naturaleza como sólo
ellos saben hacerlo. Hemos podido disfrutar unos días de junio, de
estío, de piscina y de libro, sólo interrumpidos por los
paseos, siguiendo el río Alájar, por las carnes de
ibérico al horno. Y por la siesta. A tu disposición
están las verduras de la huerta que riega con mimo José
María. Sírvete tu mismo. Si te gusta ver las estrellas,
por la noche podrás disfrutar de un cielo increíble,
mientras cantan las ranas y ladran de vez en cuando con total
desgana el "Perro amigo" o "Mataosos". Quienes no te molestarán
serán los coches. Volveremos en octubre a asar castañas en
las enormes chimeneas.
It was magnificent: the secluded surroundings of oaks and chestnuts
(no cars), the houses perfect to a detail, and the Dutch owners,
Monica and Peter, who look after the countryside as only they know
how to do. We enjoyed several days in June, summertime, swimming and books, only
interrupted by the walkers following the Alájar river, snacks of
ibérico ham and siestas. You can help yourself from the
vegetable garden or the orchard which José María carefully
tends. If you like stars, by night you can enjoy an incredible sky,
while frogs sing and the old dog barks now and then.
What you be won’t troubled by are cars. We’ll be back in October
to roast chestnuts in the huge fireplaces.
We just returned from Spain and wanted to write you a note
thanking you for a wonderful time. The place and setting were
both beautiful. Truly a special place and the hospitality of
the Mulders was outstanding. We are really looking forward
to an opportunity to return.

From Graham and Sheila Harman, UK.
Just a quick email to say that we had a fantastic time in Spain.
We thoroughly enjoyed our few days in Seville. Hazel did a lot of shopping
and I did a lot of walking!! I think we also managed to take in most of
We made the journey up to Molino Río Alájar in
no time at all - about one and a half hours. Didn't do very
much while we were in the area - made a couple of day trips
up into the lakes and also to Aracena and the caves etc.
Peter and Monica were great and we got on well with the other visitors.
Once again, thank you for a great holiday destination and for all
the hospitality. Best Regards
From Núria, Spain.
Hemos estado en Casa Zoya dos semanas. Entorno fantástico.
Ideal para relajarse, oir los grillos, el ruido del viento y el agua del arroyo.
Para conocer Huelva sin aglomeraciones. Gracias a los dueños y, en
particular, a Honda (el perro que nos acompañaba en nuestras excursiones)
e Higo (el perro que nos acompañaba el resto del tiempo).
We stayed in Zoya for two weeks. Fantastic surroundings.
Ideal for relaxing, listening to crickets, the sound of the wind
and the water in the river below. Getting to know Huelva without crowds.
Thanks to the owners and particularly to Honda
( the dog who accompanied us on our walks) and Son (the dog who accompanied
us the rest of the time)
Katie Morford, USA.
We had an amazing month at Molino Río Alájar. Thanks.
From Lynn Anderson, UK. May - June, 2004, September, 2003
Just a quick line to say how much we enjoyed our week.
On our first visit, Monica was in Holland so we only met for the
first time last week. This was very much our loss on the first trip,
Monica was so warm and friendly. Both Peter and Monica made us
very welcome - everything was just perfect.
I really didn't want to come home. I'm sure we'll be back!
From Familia Fdez. de la Puebla Lechuga, Spain
Una semana santa de cine!!!
Hemos pasado los dias de semana santa en estas ESPECTACULARES casas rurales.
El paraje donde estan situadas es precioso!! Mejor que en fotos!!
Las casas estan muy bien decoradas y super acogedoras!!
SON DE PELÍCULA!! Los dueños son muy discretos.
Tenían unos mastines adorables, que incluso nos siguieron,
siendo fieles acompañantes en nuestras excursiones
por la sierra de Aracena. ES DE 10!!
We spent Holy Week in these spectacular houses. The area where
they are is so beautiful!! Better than in the photos!! The
décor in the houses is really great and they are super-comfortable.
It is like a film-set! The owners are really unobtrusive.
They have adorable dogs who also came along with us,
faithful companions on our walks about the sierra de Aracena.
10 out of 10!!
From Leslie, UK.
We checked in successfully - and had a wonderful time.
Molino Río Alájar was lovely, as were our
hosts Peter and Monica.
