The Olive Mill is an adults-only Aparthotel for couples and ladies. Quietly placed in the countryside surrounded by citrus groves and not far from the beautiful Mediterranean coastline. Large swimming pool, shaded gardens and mountain views. With only two self-contained cottages, your privacy along with peace and quiet is assured. The property also offers free Wifi in all areas.
The large garden has lots of places to sit out. In the sun beside the tempting pool or in the shade under the old pine trees. Whichever you choose, you find yourself spoilt for choice with the views. Stunning views of the mountains and groves all around and at the right time of year the scent of the orange and lemon blossom is breathtaking.
Although the cottages are nominally self-catering, hosts Heather and Richard are happy to indulge you with seasonal dining Al Fresco. During this time they also provide a full poolside bar service including, wines and cocktails. Breakfast is available all year. The rustic accommodation features a separate bedroom with twin beds that are made as a double or single depending on your request. Curtains and blackout screens for your comfort. Kitchen with all amenities and ample utensils. Dining and living room area with patio doors leading to a private terrace with table seating and shade. Modern bathroom with power shower.
The location of The Olive Mill is quiet and peaceful, far from the rush and noise of the busy resorts. Close to the friendly town of La Murada that provides all amenities and a quirky Sunday street market. The historic city of Orihuela is just 20 minutes away. However, a drive to the coast takes less than an hour where you can visit the amazing beaches and coves on the Costa Blanca. Towns to explore include Alicante, Elche and Murcia, all with their own special sights to see and gems to offer. Stay inland and pop into some typical Spanish villages and maybe use the hotel bikes to travel around.
The Olive Mill lends itself to relaxation, giving its guests the opportunity to completely unwind and chill out. Therefore, many choose to just stay home and enjoy doing nothing!
Bar & Restaurant
Bar and dining services available from June to September inclusive when you can choose to self-cater or mix & match. An extensive menu of fresh home-cooked food is available from your hosts and enjoy drinks from the Liquid Lounge bar. Why not try a refreshing jug of Richard's Sangria hosting a perfected recipe he refuses to share!
The evening menus are tastefully varied to cater for everyone and guests who may have specific dietary requests. Is there anything finer than enjoying a relaxing dinner just listening to the sound of silence while the sun sets? From October to May occasional dining can be offered and is served at your cottage. Breakfast is available all year.
A Word From The Owners
Our aim is to ensure we exceed your expectations. To achieve this, nothing is too much trouble. We can cater for any food requirements and personal requests. All you need to do is just ask us.
We’re recently home after 6 days at The Olive Mill. The fact we were there during Spain’s worst storms/floods in 140 yrs and yet still had a fantastic time says something. Heather and Richard are great hosts even under extreme conditions and did all they could to ensure the impact on our stay was minimised. There’s everything you need here for a chilled, relaxing time. Lovely location, luscious food and a warm welcome.
Heaven on Earth - The Mill
We have actually lost count of the number of times we have visited this amazing place but it still manages to offer something new each time. We have in the past described The Mill as paradise and an oasis both of which are still true but this time we can only describe it as heaven because this time we were able to spend a lot of time with some very dear friends all of whom we met here in previous years - catching up over coffee or cocktails in the Liquid Lounge, eating the amazing food prepared by Heather, drinking wine from the superb collection chosen lovingly by Richard , singing along with David at the fantastic music nights - we stayed almost 3 weeks and it’s never long enough !! Thank you again Heather and Richard see you in 2020!!!
A truly fantastic weekend
Visited the Olive Mill last weekend with 2 friends for 3 nights. Wish it could have been longer, was so good to lie by the pool and do absolutely nothing!
Heather and Richard are amazing hosts, nothing is too much trouble and the food and drinks plentiful. Heather is also a wonderful cook!!
We didn’t leave the Olive Mill at all while we were there, we were having too much fun to waste a single moment.
Heather and Richard have made this place into a little bit of paradise, I will definitely be back.
Just Keeps Getting Better!!!
If you read our previous reviews of The Mill you will already know how much we love this place and can not recommend it highly enough!! This year has proved no different and with the added extras, Heather & Richard have once again shown their dedication to giving their guests the best possible holiday!! The introduction of air conditioning in the apartments is fabulous - the liquid lounge is comfortable and welcoming and a fantastic place to relax with a cocktail (or 2) or a jug of Richard’s famous sangria!! If you’re stay includes a Saturday please do yourself a favour and book the music night - the food prepared by Heather is amazing! And the entertainment provided by David if will definitely have you up dancing!! A fantastic trip once again - next year already being planned!! Counting the sleeps guys - thank you again!!!
Once again we visited The Olive Mill and were not disappointed by Richard and Heather’s hospitality, from the moment we arrived. The apartment as always was spotless and fully equipped with everything that you could possibly need. If you ever need something that isn’t in the apartment Heather will do her very best to accommodate you. The new dining area is an impressive addition to the pool side and provides an intimate setting to enjoy locally sourced home made dishes as the sun goes down. The bar area has been completely revamped and is an ideal spot to sit and watch Richard mix tasty cocktails for you to enjoy. It was a bit too cold for the pool during our stay but nonetheless the pool was spotless to accommodate the braver bather! All in all completely looked after no complaints here, hence will be returning later in the year.
