David the chef

About us: We are a small family business located in a hidden valley of the Montes de Málaga 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. As a family outfit, we relish in getting to know our guests and offer concierge service as standard. 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 Andalusia courtyard is as cozy and inviting as the surrounding gardens.

David has a 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.

Cortijo Juan Salvador is a characterful and historic old farmstead newly renovated to offer luxurious accommodation for up to 12 people (two more possible on request) in two separate but connected units, each with private entrance and terraces. In total there are 6 double bedrooms, 3 full bathrooms, 2 large kitchens, 2 living/dining rooms and TV room, 2 balcony terraces, and a massive open courtyard.

In 2 of the bedrooms, we can put an extra bed; for the little ones, we have baby beds at your disposal.

You can find two outdoor showers, one on the back terrace of La Higuera and another in the courtyard.

For the pool, you have two options, the little plunge pool the perfect place to relax and read, and the infinity pool great for patties and barbeque and not to forget your morning swim exercise.

Additional services are available, including massage, guided tours, babysitting, and airport pick-ups. Full concierge service is also available, though the owners provide a high level of personal attention as standard.
