“simply divine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2012

No words to describe this wonderful place and those wonderful hosts! Just a big THANK you for the experience –because that is exactly what it was to me!-
Simply a pleasure for all senses!
The surroundings, the rooms, the lounge, the antiques, ..everything a pleasure for the eyes, the smells from the lemon trees and flowers heaven, the food a divine experience. I feel grateful for the experience, thank you Miyuki and David you make all the difference with your warm and caring hospitality!
The taste of the lemon pie still makes my mouth watering!! -The lemons are making all the difference as Miyuki said-

Can’t wait until the next time

We went back to Rancho del Ingles again in Feb /March 2012 and it was just as fabulous as last time. It really is a unique place, with charming, accommodating hosts.

It is a lovely spot to spend time.

Highly recommended!

Thanks Norman. As it is tricky for a biker to hold a map while driving, you will be pleased to hear that we had some people round today to discuss the design and positioning of a new sign to be clearly visible from the road ! Hope to see you again

Really good location only 20 mins from Malaga airport. Fantastic biking roads with some great locations near by e.g. El Chorro, Rhonda, the lakes and the coast all within a great days ride.

The Rancho del Ingles is a lovely eclectic jewel tucked away in the spainish country side. Great find!! Really welcoming, after a long day on the road and great food. David and Miyuki made us feel like nothing was too much trouble.

There is secure parking for bikes and even a store for wet weather gear, you can even wash your bikes off.

Fabulous trip.

Myself and my wife Nickie stayed at David and Miyuki's UNIQUE accomodation known as "Rancho del Ingles" before and after the mountain bike stage race in Andalucia. It was a genuine pleasure to stay with David and Miyuki. The rooms were lovely and the living area absolutely fabulous. David has collected lots of interesting artifacts and, as an engineer and "collector" or anything vaguely interesing, I might have been in heaven! Once the race was finished I could enjoy the first-class breakfast and pigged-out to say the least. The coffee was pure nectar and I will seek to stay with David and Miyuki again in 2012 or 2013. Lovely. Many thanks - Bob Johnson - April 2012

Room Tip: You can't really go wrong but the room with the high bed is different and must be worth a try.

Rancho del Inglés is an ideal environment for my Yoga & Meditation Retreats! I have visited El Rancho with my international yoga group of 16 people in October 2011 and our stay has been such a great success, that I have planned 2 new retreats for 2012 with El Rancho; from 19-26 May in Spring and 29 Sep - 6 Oct in the Autumn! For information about these retreats go to my website www.yogayatra.nl - Yoga Retreats.

El Rancho is a spectacular spacious rural estate of immense character with a pool and extensive grounds. It nestles peacefully in the foothills between the mountains and the sea, near Malaga. The estate has beautiful, romantic gardens with many terraces, both sunny and shady, and lovely gazebos where you can hide yourself away with a book or to meditate. Orange, lemon and avocado groves, woods, a stream, and mature shrubs offer a wonderful sense of well-being.

The rooms either in the main house or in the cozy casas scattered in the gardens and around the pool are truly lovely and comfortable. El Estudio, a separate house on the estate, is wonderful for our yoga and meditation. We can either throw the huge doors open to sense the outdoors, see the trees and sky, hear the stream and birds, or we can close everything up and we remain in the special place inside.

The hosts, owners David and Miyuki, working together with their son Cameron and remarkable talented chef Milli, are the warmest and friendliest hosts you can imagine. They truly pamper you and make sure you are completely taken care of and you have everything you need to have a wonderful and relaxed stay. They make sure everything with respect to the accommodation is perfect, people are helped if they wish to make certain outings, and the food/catering is absolutely amazing… You land in a warm bath. This together with my extensive and transformative Yoga- and Meditation program (a Mindfulness Meditation course is included in this retreat) makes everybody return from this retreat radiant, powerful, healthy, in shape, in balance and in tune with oneself. Completely renewed and energized in a charming bronze! As such I look forward visiting El Rancho again in 2012!

If you wish to transform your life, get inspired, and take your yoga practice to the next level in this magical environment, join my retreats at El Rancho! Visit my website www.yogayatra.nl - Yoga Retreats for more information and also to check out reviews & pictures of participants!

This is a great spot. The owner has used fascinating reclaimed materials in the construction of quirky, spacious buildings.

It's a lovely, welcoming place to stay.

Room Tip: Not easy to find.
