Cortijo El Saltador is a large traditional Andalucian farmhouse close to the picturesque village of Lucainena de las Torres. It is part of an old railway line used by the mines, which was decommissioned in 1943, connecting the nearby village of Lucainena de las Torres with the port of Agua Amarga. El Saltador (the jumper), with 55 hectares of land, lies in the foothills of the Sierra Alhamilla - a spectacular and magical desert landscape.
Making use of the existing original walls, the cortijo was reconstructed between 2001 and 2003 with the energy and the enthusiasm of workers and volunteers from all over the world.
In the mainhouse there is a spacious kitchen area, an open outside eating space, a library, and several communal rooms. On the first floor there are four rooms, a bathroom and a large open office space. Outside and independant from the mainhouse, eight double rooms surround a light open courtyard. A smaller seminar room (30 sqare metres) is reached through a separate entrance at the main house. The larger independant seminar house (60 square metres) is located a short distance from the main house.
For the past decade El Saltador has offered individuals and groups the opportunity of a peaceful stay in harmony with nature. It is a place where time and space can be found to enjoy silence, relaxation and self-reflection. Its isolated location allows for concentrated work away from everyday distractions.
The house is connected to the town water supply and has a big solar system which produces electricity, hot water and heating. There is also the option in place for connecting to mains electricity. It is a place of silence, reflection and relaxation in a beautiful setting close to nature.
