Many things to do
We believe there are few places in the world better for hiking than in our area. There is a great variety of landscapes, terrain, vegetation and difficulty levels so you will find something that is perfect for you.
What will it be, a half hour walk to the Guadiaro River to watch the fish jump the waterfall or an 8 hour climb to 1500 meters and see the views to North Africa? Or somewhere in between?
Molino offers you a wide range of options from the hotel door, all with clear descriptions so you don’t have to worry about getting lost. All these directions are available to hotel residents, free of charge of course.
When you have booked with us, we will give you a password so that you can access many more trails if you want to plan ahead.
If you would like to go with a guide, Eva Bratek offers a very professional service. She tailors her routes to all abilities and is very friendly – all clients who have hiked with her recommend her 100%. Contact us to find out more about her.
Birds and Ornithology
It is impossible to ignore the birds of the Serrania de Ronda – there are too many species and too many interesting species.
We have blackbirds – hunting underwater – in the river that flows next to the hotel, there are bee-eaters, orioles in the field a short distance away – with their exotic and colorful plumage. Look up into the sky as you sunbathe and you’ll see griffon vultures with 10-foot wingspans soaring over the mountains.
And that only sums up the ones that are easy to see… there are so many species to see that it would be impossible to see them all even if you spent a long stay. Warblers of all kinds, four species of eagle – watch a Bonelli’s vulture hunt over the bush and try to look disinterested. Hawks and harriers, making their great migration to Africa, swallows, swifts and kingfishers in the summer.

The beaches on the Mediterranean Coast are easy to get to, but in summer are often crowded and a bit dirty. They do, however, have clean, warm water and are good for children because lots of them have playgrounds on the beach. They are near the very famous towns of Marbella and Puerto Banus and all the glamour attached to it.
There are many restaurants along the coast line offering fresh, local fish and other classic Spanish dishes such as paella or tapas. The other advantage of these beaches is that you can combine it with a shopping trip to the big stores on the coast or with playing a round of golf.

The best beaches on the Costa del Sol, along the Mediterranean coast, are Elviria and Cabo Pino and can be reached in just over an hour – Reception will give you directions.
