Peaceful family house in a National Park and near Malaga

Peaceful setting Family-friendly Nature

After you arrive at the airport in 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 consists of two apartments; La Higuera and El Almendro, ideal to share with friends or family. The patio of El Almendor and private terrace of La Higuera connect.

  • La Higuera was newly built on the foundations of the original Cortijo. It’s impressive, huge wooden doors, its 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 flowers in all the rooms.
  • The fully equipped, the open kitchen shows off David’s excellent craftsmanship, like the rustic, wooden counter. Next to the kitchen is a large dining table and an added seating area was created in a corner.
  • The master bedroom lies adjacent to the dining kitchen and has a large, comfortable double bed.
  • There is a smaller living area, where you can watch television. If the kids want to watch TV, you can choose to quietly read a book in the dining kitchen.
  • The small living area gives access to a second bedroom, which has two single beds. The third bedroom is located right next to the entrance; this is an intimate room with a double bed.
  • The three bedrooms share two bathrooms, which are both fitted with a bathtub.
  • From the dining kitchen, you have access to the beautiful, spacious, and sunny terrace, which is partly covered. A dining table invites you to have a cozy dinner accompanied by a fantastic view over the mountains and the ocean in the distance.
  • In front of the entrance of the apartment, there is a second, private terrace area with a BBQ and an outdoor shower. Here you can enjoy an early cup of coffee in the sun.
  • If you have young children, Riny can arrange for some toys to be placed inside your apartment and even provide a blow-up pool for outside water fun.
  • Infinity pool

The country estate of Cortijo Juan Salvador consists of several, well-maintained terraces, which have been constructed on different levels. The many flowers and fruit trees on the terrain thrive and flourish abundantly, and the view over the mountains of Malaga paints a beautiful, serene picture. Under the old fir tree, you will find tables and chairs, from which you can take in the amazing views.

In another corner of the garden, you will find a hammock, inviting you to lay back and relax or take a mid-day nap. The vegetable- and herb garden delivers lovely fresh, organic ingredients, which you may use for preparing your own meals or just ask David to prepare one of his signature dishes for you.

One level below, there is a terrace with a small swimming pool; a lovely place to savor the warm Spanish rays of the sun relaxing in one of the loungers alongside it. This area can be closed off (parental discretion advised) and therefore is safe for small children.

Energetic David still has many plans for Cortijo Juan Salvador, but thanks to all the work that has been accomplished so far, a stay at one of the apartments is already a feast. Cortijo Juan Salvador is more than just a holiday rental; it is an experience that you can compile according to your own personal wishes. A top-notch dinner, a relaxing massage, a private flamenco performance, or a sightseeing tour with David, giving him the chance to show you all his favorite spots in the area.
