“Villa Rental 2.0”, Cortijo El Carligto – Private Andalucian Hideaway, the Complete Package for Service, Culture and Cuisine

September 7, 2013 Hotel News No Comments Email Email

An ever expanding portfolio of five-star services, gourmet chefs and culinary adventures, plus inside access to cultural and experiential excursions place El Carligto at the forefront of the privately owned holiday rental sector.

From a secluded location in the hills of eastern most Malaga Province, private rental estate Cortijo El Carligto continues to reinvent the model of the private luxury villa rental. Though it is in reality a four bedroom exclusive use luxury farmstead, El Carligto has been ranked among the biggest and wealthiest five star hotels in Spain by Condé Nast Traveller over two years running. This for its first class culinary offerings, top rate services of every variety, and unparalleled cultural and experiential opportunities.

Clients seeking total peace of mind and a complete pampered experience with everything organised for them can opt for the fully hosted package that includes such comforts as 24 hour concierge, daily house and grounds keeping service, full daily gourmet board plus other conveniences such as an airport greeting and pre-arrival shopping service. In addition, all other in-house services such as health, spa and beauty treatments, child minding, personal florist and even private Flamenco performances can all be arranged.

The private chef service is just one aspect of the the hosted package; however, the culinary services go far beyond simple daily catering. Three different private chefs offer personal, gourmet service right at the cortijo (one chef with a Michelin rating), while the lead house-chef also offers guided culinary outings such as visits to the historic food markets and local wineries, plus cooking courses. The cooking courses range from a popular pool side paella course, to a week long exploration of the famed Iberian pig that can include a full butchering course.

Yet the culinary outings only scratch the surface of the cultural and experiential opportunities available from El Carligto. Its location between a string of historic white washed villages of Moorish origin make for fascinating and educational local explorations and a string of cultural festivals throughout the region, while its position at the edge of the massive Sierra Tejeda mountain nature reserve provides for endless hiking opportunities. El Carligto also sits centred between the cosmopolitan city of Malaga and the UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita in Cordoba. City, cultural and trail guides all appear on the extensive list of available services from El Carligto.

To highlight the rich potential for cultural explorations, Cortijo El Carligto is offering private guided tours of the Alhambra with compliments to all guests visiting for a week or longer until the end of 2013. The half day tour will include access and an official expert’s insight to the ancient wonders of the Nasrid Palace and the striking Generalife gardens, as well as the old fortress of the Alcazaba, the more recent palace of King Carlos V, and the Medina and general grounds.
