Catering, Kitchens & Dining

The Dining Room

Breakfast on the kitchen terrace watching the antics of the ducks and listening to the hens laying your morning egg, lunch in the vine-shaded courtyard, ramble down to the stream with the children for a picnic tea and set the table by the pool in the evening for a long convivial dinner .... (all this and you haven't even used the Comedor dining room yet!)

All around El Molino del Conde you'll find a choice of indoor and shady outdoor private dining areas to choose from .... never too far from the kitchens.

The pergola by the swimming pool provides plenty of shade and the tables can be set up to seat even large groups comfortably. For winter evenings, the tables in the Comedor dining room seat 18 or you can spread out into the adjacent Old Bakery kitchen which can seat a further 10.

The Old Bakery kitchen still features the original bread oven .... but now has a restaurant grade cooker and a dishwasher too. Cook with fresh eggs from El Molino's chickens and fresh herbs from our gardens. In season, you can harvest pomegranates, peaches, almonds, grapes, mulberries and cherries straight from the garden.

Buy fresh fruit and vegetables from Maria in the local village daily market - she grows most of it in her huerto which is 5 minutes stroll along the lane from El Molino - the rest of the produce is brought fresh from the Málaga markets every morning by her husband Cristobal.

As well as the Old Bakery kitchen, there is a well-equipped family kitchen in La Casa del Molino, a large stone barbecue by the pool and we have large a portable gas ring and cylinder, specifically designed for big paella pans (which we also have).

If you want a night off, we can arrange for Nieves and Isabel to come in from the village and cater for you: select from a range of local tapas and dishes such as paella, tortilla, gazpacho or gambas pil-pil.
