We spent the last two nights of our holiday with Danny and Jacques and wished we'd been able to stay for longer. We were made to feel so welcome and it was a great place to relax and unwind. All the food was delicious but the breakfasts were particularly special.We took our hosts' suggestions for a walk from the property and the views from it were spectacular. Do hope we can come back again!
What can I say... accommodations->wonderful, surroundings-> beautiful, hosts-> second to none. We stayed 3 nights as part of our trip to Spain. Location is close to lakes, El Caminito, and abundant hiking trails. Rooms were tastefully done and comfortable, breakfast each morning was awesome and dinners were a treat each night. Thank you Danny and Jac for making our stay so enjoyable.
We spent 4 nights at B&B Cortijo Don Camilo de La HUMA and we had an amazing time. We were expecting it to be beautiful, but we found it to be way better in reality than in the pictures, and I have to mention that we visited during winter. I can only imagine how beautiful it is during summer. Thank you Danny and Jacques for being so nice, for your amazing hospitality and for making us feel like old friends. Last but not least, thanks for the super tasty food. I really hope we will be your guests again.
If you are looking for a charming friendly peaceful and relaxating place with great food and two lovely b&b owners then cortijo don camillo de la huma is the place to be. From the start of your stay danny and Jacques will make you feel at home. Mi casa est su casa. What a fantastic stay we had. A lovely decorated room with eye for details. Diner homemade with fresh vegetables and meat or fish made by Jacques. And a liquor for ending a lovely evening with the two owners. What a treasure this b&b! Danny & Jacques: thanks for the superb stay. Lots of love and good health xx Willam & Bianca Eric & Esther
My boyfriend and I stayed at his wonderful place in july as part of our road trip in Andalucia. Don Camilo de la Huma with the lovely hosts Danny and Jacques grew in our hearts and became the most reoccurring and treasured memory of our Spanish visit. If you ever need a break from your everyday life this is the perfect place to visit.
Me and my girlfriend visited this wonderful place in july as part of our Andalusian road trip, and I must say that is was the highlight of our trip. Truely welcoming and wonderful in every detail. Beautiful rooms, a lovely garden with a magnificent view, great food and lovely dogs welcoming you at the door. Not to mention the adorable puppies :) We really hope to return to Don Camilo de la Huma.
"What happens when to nice and warm guys get tired of a stressful life in Belgium and decides to move to Andalusia to open up a Bed & Breakfast on a mountain top with the intent of welcoming people from all over the world and raise animals and enjoy nature to its fullest? This place happens." So, me and my BF wanted to spend a couple of days in the mountains while traveling around Andalusia. We found this little Bed & Breakfast at the mountain Huma, and we didn't really know what to expect. First of all, you definitely should look forward to the car ride there. The smell of fresh air, the beautiful green hills and mountains and the aesthetics of driving through thousands of lemon and orange trees with the strong colors in bright contrast to the surrounding luxuriant nature is just breathtaking. You drive up and down small roads on the hills, and though some can be a bit challenging (especially when you are from Copenhagen, a city with no hills), it is a fantastic journey. And what a journey.. At the last kilometer you drive through tuff terrain. Suddenly you come to this small sign telling you, that the B&B of Don Camilo de la Huma is right ahead. The first sight is the "Yurt" - which is a tent'ish room set up a few meters away from the house. The landscape is green and small paths around the premise is set up with small stones. Then you see the pool, which almost looks like a painting - lying there alone with the view of hills, mountains and trees to the front, and the almost majestic Huma mountain in the back. There are some chairs etc. around the pool, where you can chill. Then the house. Its white and pretty. We parked in front of the house and one of the two owners, Danny, greeted us right away telling a bit about the season (we wanted to know about all the oranges and lemons everywhere). We went inside and there we met the other owner Jacques. Together we sat down for coffee and talked about everything and nothing. They gave us some advice to what to see and do in the area, and were very good at spotting what we were in the mood for. That is one of the things we really enjoyed with the two owners - they listened, asked and guided us, and they had time. We were introduced to our room. A nice room. The decor is set up buddha style with an Anatolian touch to it - and its done pretty well. The color scheme of our room was kind of blue, I guess, which is my favorite color, so off to a good start :) The bed was large and very comfy to sleep in, and there was water waiting for us in the room. The amazing terrace stod unimpeded in front of a view hard to comprehend. Nothing in front of it disturbed the fantastic view and fresh air from the El Chorro area. Me and my bf love animals. Especially dogs. This place has a hole bunch of them, and they are so cute. They really love people, and we were allowed to pet and play with them. That was nice. We also got to meet the two horses and next morning we were invited to feed them. That was pretty awesome. The philosophy of the B&B is, we share everything else than bed and bathroom. So in the morning and at night, we ate together with Danny and Jacques (if you don't want to eat together, you can opt out - but trust me, you want to experience Jacques' cooking!). The conversations around the dinner table was exciting and funny. The second day we were there, Jacques had some of his family visiting, and they introduced us to their stories and life - very openminded and sharing people. The balance between feeling welcomed and participating in the social possibilities here, and at the same time with respect for our schedule going sightseeing on the Caminito and El Torcal was perfect. There are five rooms here, so it will never get crowded - it is in our perspective a perfect place to go, if you want both to relax, socialize and eat fantastic food to store up energy for your climbing/hiking/biking/chilling or what else you might want to do at the El Chorro. We will hopefully be going there again! Thanks guys! Elias…
This was truly a remarkable find. Because you will definitely never in a million years stumble across this place by accident, ensconced as it is high up a mountain side with panoramic vistas over green valleys and distant snow capped mountains, and eagles soaring overhead. Danny and Jacques are the most engaging hosts and keep their cortijo immaculately clean and beautifully furnished. Our room had its own terrace with spectacular views and early morning sun. The orange tree in the courtyard was a-wash with oranges, the olive trees were a-drip with olives, the almond trees heavy with blossom... We had dinner with our hosts on the second day and I urge you to take up that offer if it is made for you will have a truly delightful evening with interesting and diverting company and excellent cuisine. It seems they have singular good taste in all matters, and their sense of occasion is never wanting. I cannot recommend it highly enough, and look forward eagerly to another visit. It is also conveniently close to the Caminito Del Rey, which was the purpose of our visit there, and that is a walk which has to be seen to be believed...…
An absolutely stunning cortijo in a heavenly location with amazing views and total peace and quiet! The sierra of the La Huma mountain is such a wonderful place, yet within just minutes of El Chorro and the King's Walk - El Caminito del Rey. What a find!!
My family and I have truly enjoyed our stay at Jacques and Danny's B&B in El Chorro, Spain. Lots of adventurous activities in the neighborhood, breath-taking views and delicious food,... we would recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a B&B with two hosts who make you feel immediately at home. Furthermore are the rooms beautifully decorated and very clean. We loved our stay and hope to return one day.
