Bar, The Olive Mill

The Olive Mill is a micro-hotel deep in the countryside on the border of Alicante and Murcia, yet within a reasonable driving distance of the Costa Blanca. It has just two self-catering cottages so privacy, peace and a child-free-zone are really assured.

The large garden has lots of places to sit out; in the sun beside the large Roman-end pool, or in the shade under the old pine trees. Whichever you choose there are views of the fields and mountains. 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. During this time they also provide a bar service in the poolside bar, offering drinks, wines and cocktails. If there's no-one to serve you, the bar is still open: help yourself and fill in the honesty pad. Breakfast is available all year.

The position of The Olive Mill is quiet and peaceful, far from the rush and noise of the big resorts. Yet a drive to the coast takes less than an hour where you can visit to amazing Mar Menor, or Torrevieja, or many other little places in between. Towns to visit include Alicante, Elche and Murcia, all with their own special sights to see. Or stay in the inland countryside, pop in to some village bars and maybe use the hotel bikes to travel around.

The Olive Mill has won a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence award for 2017 in recognition of their consistently great reviews.

There is an extensive menu for evening meals to cater for all tastes and budgets which are served 'Al Fresco'. Is there anything finer than relaxing by the pool, watching your supper being cooked on the open fire while sipping your Sangria with the sunset?

From October to May occasional dining can be offered and is served in your cottage.

Fabulous holiday, hosts Heather and Richard were great. Special occasion made even more special. Would highly recommend this hotel.
We stayed at the Olive Mill a few weeks ago for a long weekend. It was the perfect place for a relaxing break with a lovely swimming pool and terrace area. The garden is beautiful and is surrounded by farmland with lemon and clementine trees growing. Heather and Richard were very friendly and helpful and we also really liked little Jerry (that's the dog). The apartment was comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. A couple of nice things like fresh fruit on arrival and a lime from the tree in the garden was lovely. The Olive Mill is a 5 minute drive from the village of La Murada where there was a couple of small supermarkets and a few cafes/restaurants. We used a car to go everywhere so would recommend hiring one. We would go back again.

"Second Visit. This is an "Official Health Warning". On your stay at the Olive Mill, should you at any time see or hear anybody not falling in love with this place more and more every day, you are advised to get them expert medical treatment ASAP. They may be dead!! Totally relaxed and pampered, will be back next year."


"Third visit. We now feel qualified to write a professional review, you will never have a bad holiday at the Olive Mill, there are only positives, this place does not lend itself to negativity."


"Thank you Heather & Richard for your hospitality, kindness and madness. We will be back next year."

We Say

The Olive Mill takes the "little hotel" concept to the ultimate. Just two cottages, so four guests. You'll probably have the garden and pool to yourselves.
