Family run organic farm located in a hidden valley of the Montes de Málaga with all of the peace and tranquillity of deep nature, yet only 25 minutes from the Mediterranean and 30 minutes from the city of Málaga. Don´t miss our private chef service, private yoga lessons or reiki energy massage.

The space
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 6,5 hectares 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 and generous tapas and wine on arrival. 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.

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 infinity pool with sun lounge. With additional opportunities for group dining or excursions you can be as private and solitary or as social as you like.
El Almendro is the oldest building of the farm with over 200 years of history. Its thick stone walls have been carefully restored and whitewashed, and it has a patio made of stone and a nice porch. The Almond will surprise you with its natural freshness even on the hottest days of summer and will delight you with its pleasant warmth in the winter months. The spacious accommodation has been divided in a simple way and has a large living room with a fireplace, a kitchen and 2 bathrooms. The charming Almond is decorated in rural style. Relax in one of its three double rooms with stunning views of Los Montes de Málaga or read a good book in the shade of the pines that filter through the living room window, making this house a haven for guests.

Location

Málaga, Spain

This secluded organic farm rests peacefully among the hills of the Montes de Malaga, offering complete privacy yet proximity to the beaches and the cosmopolitan city of Malaga (30 min). Opt to have some or all of your meals prepared for you at the cortijo. A first rate chef service is available or you may help yourself to the farm produce, and with acres of fruit trees and well-tended gardens with seasonal vegetables, fruits, herbs and edible flowers you get the freshest possible organic ingredients either way.
Families also will appreciate the private pool and generous indoor and outdoor living spaces. The spacious Andalucian 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.

...We are a family run organic farm located in a hidden valley of the Montes de Malaga with all of the peace and tranquility of deep nature, yet only 25 minutes from the Mediterranean and 30 minutes from the cosmopolitan city of Malaga. Parents Pedro and Riny moved from Pedro’s native Andalucía to Riny’s home town of Maastricht, Netherlands. Son David spent his childhood between both countries and later became a commercial airline pilot, but gave up that career to pursue his culinary passions. He moved to the farmhouse in Andalucía to help his parents develop the farm and rental business. David in the meantime gained professional training and now works as a successful private gourmet chef off site, as well as for guests at Cortijo Juan Salvador. He uses the organic fruit and vegetables they grow themselves in the dishes he serves, and loves to garnish with edible flowers. As a family outfit we relish in getting to know our guests and offer concierge service as standard, with daily touches such as fresh flowers and lit candles. We are proud to offer such personalized attention and superior culinary services. With our intimate local knowledge we can ensure a pleasant and fulfilling exploration of the ‘real Spain,’ though those preferring to stay close can enjoy miles of hiking trails around the property or simply relax by the pool. The final result of the renovations is a flexible structure allowing private lodging for six (1 house), or combined (2 houses) for groups of up to fourteen. We have maintained the rustic character of the old cortijo, and the traditional Andalusian courtyard is as cozy and inviting as the surrounding gardens. As an organic farm, and given David’s passion for food and cooking, serving local, home-grown organic produce is one of our specialties and sources of pride. We have many fruit trees and seasonal fruit and vegetables from the garden, which David uses in cooking for guests if they wish, or they may also wander through the many natural acres of the property and select fruit, citrus and veg for themselves. We carefully conserve our water, sourced from a well and stored in a reservoir tank, though the supply is sufficient for liberal use by guests. Additionally, kitchen waste is composted, while paper and cardboard, glass and plastic are recycled to minimize landfill.
