Unique Travel Experiences to Enrich the Soul
Here at El Carligto we strive to exceed the expectations of our discerning guests by offering unique travel experiences to enhance your luxury holiday and augment precious time spent here in Malaga. We have taken time to create a smorgasbord of unique experiences which are more usually hidden from the typical tourist trail, uncovering a wealth of authentic and fascinating expeditions to enrich the senses. The pleasure achieved by immersing oneself in a sense-oriented experience is unparalleled. Behind every travel destination are the stories, traditions, flavours and craftsmanship which the people have built and preserved over centuries, creating long-standing local cultures and identities. Gastronomic experiences are an integral part of exploring a local area, yet it is not always possible to truly capture the authenticity of local cultures. Having whole-heartedly immersed ourselves in Spanish culture, we work closely with local providers to offer the most authentic unique travel experiences in Southern Spain; from cultural tours to gourmet adventures and more. We celebrate the products, origins and landscapes of Andalucia whilst being in direct contact with producers, chefs and hosts that truly value their cultures here in Malaga.
The development of the Malaga Foodie and Lifestyle Tour was made possible thanks to our collaboration with Paladar y Tomar. The Spanish duo who run Paladar y Tomar use gastronomy as a unifying thread to tell stories and offer unique experiences driven by their first-hand knowledge and presence in the region to actively encourage the desire for newer exploration. Together we believe in the power of cuisine as the perfect vehicle to unveil the local culture, history, nature and lifestyle of the destination. By offering our guests privileged access to some of the most authentic and one-of-a-kind foodie experiences in Southern Spain, we are able to invite guests to share the kinds of culinary experiences typically exclusive to well-connected locals.
What Does the Malaga Luxury Foodie Travel Experience Explore?
The full day’s excursion lasts eight hours and will combine history, culture and flavours to introduce one of the Mediterranean’s mot dazzling cities in all its glory. Starting at one of the bustling main municipal markets in Malaga, we will introduce you to the dazzling array of locally-grown produce and the vibrant kaleidoscope of stalls which line the square. With the juiciest fruit and vegetables, seafood straight off the boats, rows and rows of Iberian pig charcuterie and so much more to awaken the senses, we’ll introduce you to all the treasures to be found at Atarazanas Market and then walk up to the Moorish Alcazaba to pause and drink in the most breath-taking panoramic views over Malaga. We will introduce you to some exquisite local wines with a tasting at a friendly traditional Spanish tavern, before returning downtown to peruse the market and hear stories to enlighten you about the produce, courtesy of your perfect malagueño host. Your appetite will have been well and truly whetted by now, so it’s finally time for lunch (tapas style of course), where each speciality will be introduced to you by your host.
After a day of treating your senses to a delicious visual and olfactory celebration courtesy of this unique culinary travel experience, you will be ready to relax under the shade of the olive trees back at the Carligto estate. Perhaps a few laps of the infinity pool before supper, taking in those stunning views out over the azure ocean to Morocco, and then to bed where a blissfully uninterrupted night’s sleep awaits. Enjoy dreams of the whirl of new scents and sights afforded by your luxury travel experience in Malaga. Heavenly…
