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 16 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. 

Every visit to this family-run historic old farmstead 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 two pools, the infinity pool with solarium, porch with kitchen and chill out and the little plunge pool made restoring an old natural stone water depot. With additional opportunities for group dining or excursions, you can be as private and solitary or as social as you like.
