Cortijo Juan Salvador is a 200 years old, lovingly restored wine estate, which belongs to the Palacios family. Pedro, Riny and their son David, his wife Rosa and their two sons have thrown themselves into this adventure and transformed the ancient cortijo into a marvelous holiday rental. The warm and friendly family also lives in this great house and they will gladly provide you with special extra services and tips about the area. David is a phenomenal chef and guests have the advantage of being able to savor the exclusive organic dishes that he prepares with passion.

On the estate, which spreads out over 6 acres of land filled with almond-, olive-, and fruit trees, guests have a choice of two apartments. Through a large gate, you come on the large patio of El Almendro. The whitewashed walls contrast beautifully with the vibrant wooden elements. The brightly colored flowers make the idyllic picture. El Almendro is located in the oldest part of the cortijo and has many original features. The three bedrooms share two bathrooms (one with a bath). The cozy kitchen is completely furnished and the living room has a fireplace and a comfortable large sofa. La Higuera has three bedrooms, with the option of placing two extra beds. This apartment has a private entrance, 2 private terraces, a large open dining kitchen, two bathrooms with a bath and lots of original, added details.

The cortijo is surrounded by various delightful spots; a vegetable- and herb garden, a shaded hammock under an old fir tree, a plunge bath with loungers in the sun and many seating areas, where guests can appreciate the views of the vast, tranquil landscape. In short; a scenic and cozy rental, where you can enjoy the many extra’s that the Palacios family offers their guests. This is a fine home base for exploring the diversity of Andalusia. And after a long day of sightseeing, you can return to your own holiday home to a tastefully prepared dinner under a starlit sky.

You will probably fly the airport of Malaga in Andalucia. From here it is 45 minutes drive inland and you will reach Cortijo Juan Salvador, located in a nature reserve Montes de Malaga. The cortijo is an oasis in the mountains, but within 30 minutes' drive you can visit the city beaches of Malaga or sit on a sunny terrace in the historic center of Malaga. Traditional villages, such as Comares and Colmenar, are 30 minutes' drive away. From the Cortijo you can make several walks through the hills.

The nearest village is Olias (5 km). Here is a small shop (open only a few hours in the morning and evening) for basic groceries. Within a half hour drive (15 km) you will find a Carrefour in Rincon de la Victoria.

Nice to combine with a walk on the beach of La Cala del Moral and Rincon de la Victoria. A nice thing to do is to shop fresh groceries on the large market in the center of Malaga. Combine it with a visit to this pleasant city, stroll along the promenade and have a drink at one of the many terraces.

David cooks on request a delicious quality meal on your private terrace, but if you want to eat out there are several possibilities in one of the surrounding villages. Nice villages are Totalan, Comares, Benarmargosa, Almachar, Cuta etc. You do have to take the car, but it's worth it.

The beaches of La Cala del Moral and Rincon de la Victoria are recommended for a wonderful day at the beach. Malaga itself offers good city beaches and a visit to the (former fishing) village of Pedregalejo is a fine place for children to go. It is basically a sequence of different small beaches in succession. Also many good fish restaurants here.

Overall, you will find at Cortijo Juan Salvador peace, rest and plenty of space. At a distance of about 30 minutes you have everything; beaches, a pleasant city, charming villages and a nature park where you can make nice walks.

After you arrive at the airport of Malaga, your holiday can begin! The half-hour drive to the Cortijo Juan Salvador is full of promise; a meandering mountain road leads past small villages, while the wind whispers through the branches of the eucalyptus trees to both sides. Then Cortijo Juan Salvador appears in the distance; a white oasis hidden in the lush green hills of the Montes de Malaga nature reserve. What a magnificent location!

After a warm welcome by the Palacios family, you are free to do as you please and enjoy this marvelous place from the privacy of your own apartment. Cortijo Juan Salvador has two apartments; La Higuera is one of them.

La Higuera was newly built on the foundations of the original cortijo. It’s impressive, huge wooden doors, it’s high ceiling with wooden beams and the terracotta floors lend an authentic atmosphere to the apartment. Riny and Rosa pay lots of attention to detail and you will find fresh f...
