Private Rental Estate Cortijo El Carligto Enlists Michelin Rated Chef for In-Property Dinner Service
Cortijo El Carligto (http://www.carligto.com), a privately owned exclusive-use rental estate, and Michelin rated Chef Juan Quintanilla of Sollun restaurant in Nerja entered into collaboration this week. Chef Quintanilla now delivers full seven course gourmet tasting menus as well as a day-to-day catering alternative for clients holidaying at El Carligto, delivering the private chef service onsite at the exclusive rural retreat in the mountainous area of La Axarquia.
Chef Quintanilla has worked in several Michelin starred kitchens, and his preceding restaurant, Skina in Marbella, which he co-founded, also has a Michelin star. His current restaurant, Sollun, produced the Michelin guide for 2011 and 2012, scoring marks for the intimate setting and Mr Quintanillas personable method as effectively as for fine food.
Cortijo El Carligto adds this chef service option to its already substantial list of culinary and other service offerings, Chef Quintanilla becoming the second chef enlisted to cook at the home. Carligto property chef, David Palacios, provides an even wider range of culinary services at the estate, which includes 4 to eight course meals, cooking courses and poolside paella master classes, and bespoke every day catering options. Chef Palacios even leads guided food industry and wine bodega tours from El Carligto.
In addition, El Carligto collaborates with a team of specialists to provide onsite spa, health and beauty treatments ranging from manicure and pedicure, to aromatherapy or relaxing massage and non-surgical facelifts all also delivered onsite with a poolside spa-cabana specially developed for the objective.
With such a range of first-rate services to match the rustic-luxurious interiors, Cortijo El Carligto demonstrates why the house has been nominated for the Conde Nast Traveler Gold List this year in competitors with some of the biggest, wealthiest corporate luxury hotels in Spain. Carligto general manager A Hazel explains it merely, We offer anything youd count on from a five star hotel, plus something they can’t: total privacy and seclusion and I know of no other private residence supplying the services of a Michelin rated chef.
