We have been here for one week, end of may 2010. What a lovely, romantic, place to stay. Very clean room with nice views over Fuengirola and the sea.A full fresh breakfast every day by the owners. You even can make your own choice.The owners make you realy feel at home.Harrie and Karin, The Netherlands
Great place to relax in the countryside. It has a lovely, tropical garden with all different kind of fruits, ranging from mangos to exotic nuts.The room is very rural and comfortable, with magnificent views.Great location, right between Mijas and Fuengirola.We had a wonderful stay, especially thanks to the very hospitable owners.
What a lovely place to restore your energies and well-being! Our visit and stay at El Cortijo did even more. We experienced the real beauty and sounds of Spain from this little gem. The owners showed us incredible hospitality.A little paradise. Thank you.
Both my wife and I have recently spent a week at Montes de Almachada (17th - 24th July 2010)staying in the very quaint El Corijo. It was a very relaxing holiday made more so by the very hospitable host's Patrick and Jill who spent most of their valuable time looking after the guest's, nothing was to much trouble.The braekfast was delivered at what ever time we requested it with pretty much what we chose the day before. If you are looking for a place to stay where you know you will be looked after in every detail then look no further than the Montes de Almachada, you will feel at home the moment you arrive.
It was like a dream, such a nice place to stay! We had a fantastic weekend in Montes de Almachada. The room was luxury, romantic and state of the art with a view on the mountain and sea. They even have their onw "natural parc" full of local fruits, flowers and trees. At the swimming pool you have your own personal entertainer, Jacko the parrot ;-)Special thanks to Jill and Patrick who are the perfect hosts.
Jill en Patrick dank jullie wel voor de heerlijke dagen in Montes de Almachada. De lokatie is prachtig, mooie kamer en een voortreffelijk ontbijt met o.a. vers fruit uit de tuin.Een beter begin van onze vakantie in Andalusie hadden we niet kunnen wensen. Erik en Leonoor uit Holland
We were in mid-October 2010 a guest several days.Well what can I really say about these two special people.That's really no words to explain.These people give everything for the guests to feel at ease.Need help with whatever is needed, it does not, they will help you wherever they can.Want to feel like a king or queen go there to spend your holiday than it really worth it!Marco & Christel (Netherlands)

I had the opportunity to stay in this very special location last year in august.
I was looking for something different: not a typicial hotel or bed&breakfast, where you just stay to sleep and have breakfast as the name indicates.
I wanted to go a place where I could actually have an experience just by being there, enjoying the whole period of my stay, without any necessity of driving somewhere far.
Some good friends told me: Montes de Almachada is the place for you! So I took my luggage and found myself in the middle of a jungle with hundreds of different tree species, sweet sound of birds that seemed to be there just to welcome me; and a fresh breath of air that was just what I needed on a hot summer day.
The hosts where the next thing that gave me "vacation sensation". With a big smile I was led to my cosy, rural room through the garden where I discovered a turqoise pool. I think by that moment I couln´t feel more right about the decision I had taken of coming here. I was kindly asked for my breakfast preferences that would be served in the next morning at my cottage!
And I didn't know what else to long for I learned that the fruit in my breakfast had been picked righ at the garden and the juices freshly squeezed!!
I could go on telling my experience but I'll leave you to disover this place by your own.
You will definetely get a taste of paradise at JiLl&Patrcik´s, whom I thank a lot for their great hospitality and attention.
We spent a week at Montes de Almachada and were sad to go. It is a lovely spot from which one can easily drive to most Andalucian attractions, but staying there is a treat already. The rooms are tasteful and cosy, even the bedsheets are chosen with care. Much has been said about the special attention paid to the guests' breakfast preferences and it is all true. The kindness and warmth of the (multilingual) hosts are truly unequalled. We thank Jill and Patrick from the bottom of our hearts and will be back next year.
We have, literally, just returned from ten fabulous days spent at Montes de Almachada and cannot speak highly enough of the wonderful location and fabulous hosts, Jill & Patrick, who have made our vacation one to savour and remember, always. A truly beautiful oasis, full of natural beauty and our hosts had a special touch for making us feel most welcomed .... We cannot speak highly enough of this gem of a place and we will most definitely be spreading the word ... We have been treated with such kindness and the cottage and breakfasts are first-rate ... Thank you, again, for a truly wonderful time, we will not forget it and look forward to revisiting!

heerlijke verwen-b en b.
een absolute aanrader voor wie houdt van rust,privacy, natuur en schitterende vergezichten.
prijs/kwaliteit kan echt niet veel beter.
It is a very cozy and quiet place, and the
owners are very hospitable and helpful. We spent there 4 days and we are happy that we found it! Once more thanks for everything! And all the Best for you!
Die Unterkunft war echt traumhaft für uns. Das Preis-Leistungsverhältnis stimmt absolut. Das Frühstück war sehr abwechslungsreich und auf extra Wünsche wurde eingegangen. Der perfekte Service eben! Sehr empfehlungswert!
Idealne miejsce zeby sie zrelaksowac i wyciszyc. A Jill i Patryk sa tak samo goscinni i pomocni jak my Polacy:) Polecamy, naprawde warto!
Először is szeretnénk megköszönni a szíves vendéglátást!
(First of all, we would like to thank you for your kind hospitality!.)
We searched a quiet place far away from the concrete hotels of mass tourism.
We found it, but we couldn’t imagine such a relaxing and magical place and incredibly kind persons.
Jill and Patrick were very flexible and they were always there, when we needed some help or some instructions abot our routes or about the andalucian life and history.
They always watched our wishes, and they even made vegetarian breakfast for us!
Now we are in our home and miss the fresh orange juice, fresh fruits from the garden and the friendly dog called by us „Mamakutya” (Mumdog), she was our bodyguard there.
We would like to recommend this place for those who loves personal attention, who loves the nature and natural things, the beautiful gardens, and the bird’s singing.
Be Jill and Patrick’s guest and enjoy the warmth of their friendship!
Esther and Lala
Merci à Patrick et Jill d'accueillir si gentiment leurs hôtes pour de merveilleux moments au creux de ce jardin luxuriant. Qu'il est doux de profiter du calme, de l'accueil, de la paix des lieux, au présent bien sûr, lors de votre visite, mais encore après votre retour...encore tout imprégné...un "vaccin" anti-stress en quelque sorte...
My wife and I spent five wonderful days in this bed and breakfast this past February, 2012. We are from the USA and we have lived, studied and traveled throughout Europe and Asia. We decided to stay here to take a short break from an otherwise busy tour of Spain. We found the hosts Jill and Patrick to be a wonderful couple who made us feel as if the place was our home away from home. We enjoyed all the food they provided (don't be fooled, instead of a bed and breakfast, this should be called a bed and breakfast, lunch and a snack for dinner). They are a very nice couple who made our little stop a wonderful experience. The view from the patio is spectacular and the calm environment is so much different from the hectic beach scene at the bottom of the hill. I highly recommend this place!
Nous avons passé nos dernières vacances en juillet 2012 à Montes de Almachada chez Jill et Patrick.
Le cadre est paradisiaque, très bien entretenu et surtout très reposant. La situation est idéale, au calme mais tout juste à 10 minutes des plages et des commerces.
Nous avons habité la très belle chambre « El Cortijo » pendant 2 semaines. Les petits-déjeuners sont délicieux et très copieux, chaque jour Jill et Patrick nous ont gâtés avec leurs fameuses crêpes, gaufres, omelettes… Merci aussi à Patrick pour tous ces bons conseils concernant les visites, les restaurants…
En résumé un endroit exceptionnel et surtout un accueil très chaleureux et inoubliable. Nous reviendrons, c’est sûr !
If you have looked at this web site then you are looking for something different. From my and my partners experience you will not be disappointed.
Although not so far from the madding crowed, you are effectively shielded from it in this little piece of tranquility and peace. Wake in this little Eden to a breakfast of choice ….
Dispel any preconceptions of “ roughing it“.
Rural Spain at your feet…yet all the creature comforts still at hand….Great location for Day out visits to Ronda or Granda (a must do)
If the tranquility of the pool wears thin you are close to the beaches . A nice town just up the hill with a fine choice of restaurants.
We recommend this secret place for those who wish for a holiday break…that is a break. You find Jill and Patric the most agreeable of hosts….always approachable and never intrusive….

Just come back from 3 nights spent at Montes de Almachada, only wish we could have spent longer. The description on the website looked fabulous, but the real experience was even better. The owners, Patrick and Jill, who speak several languages fluently, fall over backwards to make you feel welcome- nothing is too much trouble, in fact they do all they possibly can to make your stay special. Breakfasts are HUGE! Home-baked bread each day, fresh fruit, meats and cheese, yoghurts, and a special surprise each morning ( we had freshly made pancakes one day and delicious cheese omelette another). Brought directly to your own private terrace at whatever time you desire.
There is a lovely pool with a resident parrot nearby to entertain you!
The accomodation is so quiet, being in an idyllic rural location yet only 25 mins from Malaga airport and 5 mins from the delightful town of Mijas.
A truly relaxing time can be spent here. We cannot wait to go back.
Superb value for money.
Stayed August 2012, travelled as a couple
Ha sido una escapadita fantastica!! Somos de Granada, pero queriamos simplemente "uir" del mundo real unos 3dias y q mejor sitio q ese!! un trato muy detallista, un desayuno q da para comer todo el dia y un ambiente relajante...
gracias por todo!!
heerlijke dagen gehad:
Na drukke dagen in Granada, Cordoba en Sevilla was deze bed and breakfast een baken van rust met fantastische verzorging en hele mooie vergezichten !! een aanrader !!
Tusen tack Jill och Patric för er gästfrihet. Ni är fantastiska och att vara hos er är som att komma direkt till paradisets centrum. Fridfullt och härligt på alla sätt!
A hidden gem that offers relaxation, tranquility and inspiration. The casita accomodation is beautifully presented and every small detail is taken care of by the exceptional hosts. We were given a tour of the tropical gardens which was fantastic. The setting of this oasis is wonderful allowing you to feel that you have truly 'got away from it all' with the benefit of Mijas and Fuengirola being a short distance away. We reluctantly left feeling refreshed and relaxed with thanks to Jill and Patrick who get it so right.
Montes de Almachada is a true paradise on the Costa del Sol. With its unique natural beauty, a place of peace and tranquility.
In this way, life must have meant to live.
Jill and Patrick need only one word to understand what you might need for a perfect stay.
Jill is unmatched in the luxury breakfast. Patrick, as a very well-read man, supports you in word and deed, to plan your cultural and culinary activities.
Look no further if you want to be pampered like kings. You will not be disappointed.

7 days stay
Glad att få göra ett besök hos er i år igen! Som sagt, ni bor i Paradiset och ni är underbara som människor. Kram
The most cozy Bed and Breakfasts I have visited! In Jill and Pateics garden, this wonderful accommodation comprising of three rooms in small stone houses. Wonderfully soothing and romantic. Breakfast was served when it suited you best. It was served to your patio and consisted of Jill's freshly baked bread, omelette or pancake, tapas, juice and a whole bunch! We stayed two nights but would happily have stayed forever
Dear Jill & Patrick,
Thanks a lot for your hospitality and kindness!
We stayed at Montes de Almachada for 10 days and had an unbelievable relaxing time there, it's really a small paradise in Spain.
The garden is beautiful arranged as well as the accomodation.
You will find everything you need there for perfect holidays.
Patrick and Jill always give you some information of the surroundings and help you with everything.
Every evening you will be asked what you want for breakfast the next morning (sweet or salty) and you will get tasty omeletts, waffles and pancakes! It's enough for the whole day!
We didn't want to leave this place - and are a bit jealous of Patrick and Jill :-) :-)
Insiders' tip: Just lay down at the pool and Patrick will bring you delicious (!!!) ice cream with a taste of lemon and cinnamon ;-)
THANK YOU JILL & PATRICK!
We waren 2 nachten in deze fantastische b&b en niets kan deze locatie meer overtreffen. Bedankt Patrick en Jill voor het warme welkom, het geweldige eten en drinken en de prachtige plek die jullie ons hebben geboden! Graag komen we nog eens terug. We kunnen deze locatie iedereen aanraden. Ook is Mijas een bezoek waard. Hartelijke groeten.
Thanks to Jill & Patrick for a beautiful week in this lovely and peacefull B&B! (6/9/14 - 13/9/14)
We really enjoyed the environment, the delicious breakfast and the fantastic hospitality & kindness of you!
Greetings from Belgium,
Pieter & Eva
I enjoyed 3 peaceful and relaxing nights here in early October 2014, spending parts of each day walking or a seeing a friend who lives nearby. The location is great, close to Mijas and the coast for all that they offer, yet tucked away in wonderful gardens. Lovely room and facilities, excellent breakfasts in early sunlight by the pool and thoughtful hospitality.
Dank voor een heerlijk ontspannend verblijf. Het ontbijt was iedere keer weer goed. Mijas heeft enkele verrassend leuke restaurantjes. Leuk om mee te kunnen helpen met het onderhoud aan het irrigatie systeem! Wellicht tot een volgende keer. Groeten Tim en Nelleke.
La estancia ha sido estupenda. La casa rural y el ambiente de la zona es muy agradable y es muy idóneo para pasar grandes días de relajación y olvidarse de todos los problemas cotidianos.
En cuanto a los anfitriones Jill y Patrick, son los mejores que hemos conocido en tantas visitas que hemos realizado. Son muy hospitalarios, simpáticos y se preocupan por cada detalle para que la estancia sea de auténtico lujo en este pequeño paraíso.
Recomendamos al 100% esta visita rural para todas aquellas personas que quieran pasar unos días inolvidables.
Inmiddels de tweede keer dat wij hier van onze vakantiedagen hebben genoten. Het is een absoluut toppertje !
Als je houdt van een goed bed ,een mooi gastenverblijf met eigen terras en een superontbijt met eigen gebakken broodjes,pannenkoekjes,vers fruit,sapjes of omeletjes,dan is dit het juiste adres. De gastheer en vrouw Patrick en Jill doen alles wat mogelijk is om het je naar het zin te maken.
Het gastenverblijf ligt heel gunstig,dichtbij het pittoreske Mijas en het bruisende Fuengirola.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
