...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 with Spanish wife Rosa and son little David 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.
