Why Stay At Cortijo el Carligto
Perched on a hilltop in the La Maroma mountains overlooking the Mediterranean coastline of Malága, Cortijo el Carligto offers luxurious and utterly private seclusion.
Built on the former site of a 15th-century Spanish farmhouse, Cortijo el Carligto is a private estate comprised of two large villas, which are surrounded by groomed gardens and exude typically Andalusian rustic charm. Villa El Carligto features four bedrooms plus four bathrooms (two en-suite), living room, four indoor/outdoor fireplaces and even an outdoor kitchen. The villa is furnished with Suzani tapestries, French and Spanish antiques and offers several terraces. It also has an outdoor pool with a shaded patio and an outdoor shower. Guests will enjoy exquisite meals prepared by a personal chef. Personalize your stay further with options such as guided excursions or a gourmet cooking class with the chef.
Be sure to make use of El Carligto's spa cabana for al fresco treatments such as a relaxing aromatherapy massage.
During your stay, you have access to the kitchen herb and vegetable garden—take the opportunity to harvest some fresh ingredients for home cooking.
Arrive at Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport (AGP) which is approximately 44 miles from the estate. Anticipate about 70 minutes of travel time.Loma de Caceria S/N, Canillas de Aceituno, Andalucia, Spain

Why We Love Málaga
Revered as a prime European destination for sun seekers, Malága at the Costa del Sol offers a myriad of shopping, nightlife and entertainment options. These modern amenities are offset by many architectural reminders of the region's remarkable history and its softly rolling hills dotted with olive and peach tree groves.
Dinner + drinks for two $50.
Avenida Andalucia S/N, 29716 Canillas de Aceituno.
Best Tapas Bar: Visit Velez-Malága and follow the locals to Taperia Capri; a small establishment offering a wide variety of the popular canapés. Let your server guide you through the choices. Try the vol-au-vent de zamburiñas (puff pastry with bay scallop ragu fin) and pair with a mug of Victoria, a pale lager beer brewed in Malága since 1928.

Where to Shop: On the first Sunday of the month, drive about 70 minutes west to Malága to stroll around the Mercadillo de Baños del Carmen on the ocean promenade of El Palo. Find one-of-a-kind locally crafted artwork along with vintage items plus a growing section dedicated to organic produce.

Outdoor Excursion: Only 1½ hours east of Cortijo lies the city of Granada whose history was characterized by Moorish and Spanish influences. Be sure to visit major sights such as the Alhambra, the Cathedral and Royal Chapel as well as some of the city's colorful neighborhoods like Sacromonte. Give your historic tour a hip approach and rent a Segway—it makes climbing hills a cinch.
