Just returned from a weeks stay in this lovely apartment.Having stayed in many apartments over the years this one had everything you could ask for and much more.Right in the heart of Mijas Pueblo which is a lovely white washed Spanish village with traditional Spanish restaurants which are all a few minuets walk from the apartment.The apartment itself has a lovely cosy feeling spotlessly clean a very well equipped kitchen lovely bathroom and bedroom with a four poster bed.The lounge is very spacious with lovely traditional furniture and a little patio to have a glass of wine on to watch the sun go down of an evening.I would highly recommend Los Molinos
My partner and I have now stayed in Mijas for four consecutive years - twice in La Cala de Mijas and twice in Mijas Pueblo - and we both agree that this is the nicest apartment yet. Aside from a minor snag with the water when we arrived (it seemed that somebody had turned off the stopcock, for no apparent reason), everything was fine. The TV set-up is quite unorthodox and takes a bit of getting used to: a web-based streaming service, routed through a PC (keyboard et al), providing hundreds of mainly English language channels (the majority of which really don't warrant a second viewing). Being a Spanish speaker I was a little disappointed that I couldn't actually watch any Spanish tv in Spain.
Nuevo Pueblo is a nice little estate, authentically reproducing the traditional back streets of the old village, right down to the buganvilla, the non-uniformity of the paving stones and the asymmetrical stone steps.
However, there IS a downside to Nuevo Pueblo and it has nothing to with the accommodation: the pool. Poolside rules are posted clearly and each apartment at the complex is issued with a set: no inflatables, no ball games, no diving, no glasses or food; no minors unattended in the pool, no towels left on sun loungers (as a means of reservation); showering before entering the water and - perhaps most significantly - showing consideration for fellow residents. Despite this, other guests' behaviour around the pool area turned what should have been a peaceful and relaxing experience into an anarchic cacophony of familial hooliganism. Essentially, every rule I've just listed was openly flouted and the poolside noise level unbearable. We endured two days before opting for the beach instead, which involved catching the bus into Fuengirola.
It's a shame, because these could have been 11 uninterrupted, stress-free days in the Pueblo...
In a nutshell: nice apartment, but better facility management would've made it a great one.
We decided to go to Mijas Pueblo for our two week holiday, from booking the holiday with Cath who we contacted by email to check the availability to the countdown to our holiday. Cath sent our a map which was really appreciated as this made it easy to find the property. Entering the property the areas is well cared for with the water fountains and the cobbled stone walkway to the front door. She has thought of everything you would need for your holiday, if you want to go to the beach there are sun chairs and umbrella. The furnishing are typical Spanish and very comfortable, in the kitchen you have a fully completed kitchen, if you decide to cook there is everything you would need. The washing machine and tumble dryer is available if you need it. The Juliette balcony is great to sit out in the evening to cool down with a drink. We would recommend the property to anyone looking for a fantastic holiday property and location. We will have no hesitation in recommending Los Molinos and will definitely return for another holiday. Thank you again for letting us stay in your lovely propery.
after visiting mijas many times we decided to spend a few days there, were we happy when we found los mollinos!.
the beautiful apartment is ideally situated on the edge of mijas with all that mijas has to offer close at hand.

A very nice townhouse situated on a very friendly, pretty and welcoming complex. Most of the residents were owners and were quick to guide us through the what's and wherefores of the area. The house was fully equiped with everything you would expect from your own home. The drawers and cupboards were full of things like sellotape, string, phone books, torches, tools and plugs etc and was furnished to a high degree. The balcony was small but was just big enough for two chairs and a small table and was in the sun all afternoon until sunset. It was a 10 minute walk to the village centre where there are plenty of bars and restaurants. If you don't want to go out there is a take away shop under the complex that sells spit roast chickens or spare ribs for 8 euros run by Anka and Sandra, they are so friendly and their food is superb. There is a supermarket about a five minute walk away to buy your salads, water, wine, beer, milk etc. The only thing that the owners did not supply that would have been a very welcome addition was a shopping trolley to carry the supplies back, although only a short walk it was hard graft in the heat. Overall it was a very pleasant experience and I am sure we will return in the near future. In fact we liked the complex so much we viewed a property opposite that was for sale through the estate agents but decided against it as the owner refused to budge on the asking price. Be weary if you have difficulty with stairs as there is a sharp stone staircase immediately you go through the front door, other than that this is a very nice property that will not disappoint.
This apartment is set in a well kept development close to restaurants, supermarket and tapas bars. Across the road is a bus stop with regular services to the coast.
I couldn't speak highly enough of this apartment. Fully equipped with a balcony overlooking a lovely soothing fountain whilst enjoying the sun. There is a communal pool just a few steps up from the apartment. Everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. Cath and Ian are wonderful should there be a problem. I enjoyed it so much I have booked to go back this year!!
Had an absolutely fantastic stay in this pretty, traditional little apartment. It had everything you need plus it was spotless. It is in a great location just on the edge of the pueblo with all the local transport just outside the complex. The pool area is lovely too. Me and my husband will definitely go back.
