Molino de la Horcajada

 The Horcajada watermill dates from the XV century. As its name suggests, it  was part of the many properties of the first Lord of Horcajada, D. García  Álvarez de Toledo, son of the first Duke of Alba.

 Since that time the mill was modified, restored and enlarged in several  occasions. Although the watermill is still in working conditions, nowadays it’s  mainly used as unique and romantic place to spend the holidays.

 On the first floor of the house there is a small living and dining room with a  kitchenette as well as 5 bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom. All rooms  are equipped with an electric heating system . During the cold months of the  year  the wood stove in the living room, needs to be lit to give some extra  warmth  and cosines.

 On the ground floor the original mechanism of the mill can be admired. There  is a large living room with kitchen and a porch. In the cold winter months, this  floor can be heated with its fireplaces and a special biomass pellet stove.

 In summer the old 80 cm thick stone walls maintain the inside temperature of  the house very pleasant and comfortable. A dip in the natural pool, a nap in  the hammock, with the sound of water and the tranquility of the place, make  the watermill the perfect place to unwind from the stress of everyday life.

 The house is located on an idyllic spot on the banks of the river Lozoya, off  the beaten track, approximately 1 km of the public road and some 3 km from  the nearest town. Great location for nature lovers, with plenty of walking trails,  most of Roman origin. At short distance from Madrid, Segovia, La Granja,  Pedraza and many other places of cultural and historical interest, it is also a  good point of departure for daytrips and excursions.
