Distinguished Establishment nominated by the Provincial Council of Málaga.
Serenity and calm precede you at Cortijo Juan Salvador. From the top of the (long) shady eucalyptus lined drive, the panoramic views over the Mediterranean Sea prepare you for the nature induced solace you can expect at this historic old winery with authentic features from the 18th century. Nestled into the valley on some 20 acres of private land within a protected area of the Montes de Malaga natural park, you’ll forget that you are within 30 minutes of the beaches and the cosmopolitan city of Malaga. Upon entering the grand courtyard at the heart of the cortijo you may even forget what century it is, imagining the horses and donkeys that were housed here during the bygone days of winemaking on the estate.
Your hosts, however, will quickly bring you back to present with a warm welcome. Every visit to this family run eco farm includes complimentary concierge service to help you get the most from your holiday, and the culinary services provided by Chef David Palacios of the on-site host family are truly first rate. Available as personal guides for local explorations and adventures, to offer “insider” recommendations, or simply leave you to your own designs in peace, your hosts aim to cater each visit to each guest.
Families also will appreciate the plunge pool and the amazing infinity pool and generous indoor and outdoor living spaces. The spacious Andalusian courtyard (which can be closed off for child supervision) is a grand space for relaxing or entertaining and features traditional architectural elements highlighting the characteristic rustic charm evident throughout the property. Beyond the antique wooden courtyard gates lie an expanse of nature and open spaces ripe for exploration.
Cortijo Juan Salvador offers two separate lodgings to guests, La Higuera and El Almendro; both with stylish contemporary décor and 3 double bedrooms, private outdoor terraces, fully equipped kitchens and open plan dining-living rooms. Both also feature private entrances, and shared access to the cosy plunge pool and infinity pool with sun lounge. With additional opportunities for group dining, catering, private hatha yoga or ying yoga lessons, reiki, massages, flamenco show, private flamenco lessons or excursions you can be as private and solitary or as social as you like.
