Owner Bernard Genge
After falling in love with this old water-powered flour mill (molino viejo) near Serón in rural Almería, I bought it in 2003. As someone who is obsessed with health and fitness, it was the realisation of a dream: to create a special retreat dedicated to groups who wanted to focus on health, fitness and wellbeing, in addition to a place where individuals or groups could go for a peaceful holiday. I’d like you to think of the old mill as your own private home for the duration of your stay, and to this end, I have aimed to make the accommodation as comfortable as possible as well as fitting for a retreat where you can relax, enjoy the location and environment, and focus on yourself away from the distractions of everyday life. I sincerely hope your experience will be everlasting or even… life-changing.
Situated at the foothold of the Sierra de Los Filabres mountain range and it is accommodation for groups who want adventure. With the mill oozing character and in a secluded spot with spectacular scenery all around, securing your own adventure is a must. The mill has 6 bedrooms, an inside and outside lounge area, dining area, sun terraces, and away from the noise, hustle and bustle of regular life! Come to us if you are looking for accommodation in a relaxed atmosphere and countryside waiting to be explored on foot, bike or vehicle, but not if you are looking for the crowded costa resorts! We have mountain bikes you can use, terrace patio areas for relaxing, an indoor studio for group work, your own private swimming pool and many quiet areas suitable for time alone and personal reflection.

For the more active, you could take a hike, go for a run or ride on one of our eight mountain bikes.
