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 38 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.
El Saltador was run for 15 years as a rural holiday retreat, is now for sale, but still used for art and music venues, films and photo shoots.
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.
