Baby Boomers and “Empty Nesters” Book Long Term Hosted Rentals for the Immersive Experience of a Lifetime at Cortijo El Carligto

July 3, 2014 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

Cortijo El Carligto, Private Andalucían Hideaway, presents new packages and guided experiences, facilitated by a local host, to lure the comfort and adventure loving generation of travelers with the time to focus on explorations and personal development.

The owners of El Carligto, in the hills of eastern Malaga province, have developed vital relationships with a wide range of local experts and contacts to offer visitors the opportunity of living like a well appointed local. Guests with a month or longer sabbatical will enjoy special rates at the estate, and can count on filling their days with often dreamed of and life changing, culturally immersive experiences. All is hassle-free, being organised and coordinated with help from their hosts at El Carligto.344645_num904637

Explore lesser known routes in the historic white-washed villages of La Axarquia, or the World Heritage cities of Cordoba and Granada, home of the incomparable Alhambra, with a private guide. Join one of El Carligto’s two top chefs (one with a Michelin rating) for private meals and lessons on the finer points of local Andalucían cuisine, or as an escort for outings to local wineries, olive mills and the famous covered food market of Malaga.

El Carligto sits at the edge of an enormous mountain nature reserve and overlooks the Mediterranean Sea; here, professional trail guides can expose beautiful and secret places. Curious and active guests might also employ a Spanish language tutor, or take art and photography courses, participate in the olive and grape harvests, or learn Flamenco dance and even delve into the controversial art of bullfighting.

For lovers of travel who like to really get under the surface of a place rather than biting off pieces of well tread tourist routes, a longer term stay at Cortijo El Carligto or its companion property, The Hunting Lodge, offers a fully facilitated experience, complete with English speaking doctors on call. Owner Alan Hazel, originally from the USA, thinks the concept might be particularly suited to his compatriots: “For those who may or may not have travelled extensively outside of the United States previously but have always wanted an authentic insight into Spanish culture, we offer a comfortable and complete proposition.”

In just a few years time Cortijo El Carligto has emerged from a new upscale rental property to a full service estate complete with two stylish homes to rival the comfort and service of five star hotels. This, in addition to the increasing portfolio of local collaborators for organised cultural and culinary tours, has earned El Carligto three consecutive nominations to the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List.

On-site services can include daily catering from a Michelin rated chef, daily housekeeping, 24 hour concierge plus spa and beauty treatments, offering clients as much pampering as they like. Guests can also simply look after themselves or have any combination in between.
