La Garganta Rural Resort
Our resort is located in one of the most impressive places in Malaga – el desfiladero de los Gaitanes (Gaitanes Gorge). The resort has been built over an old wheat flour factory from early Twentieth century. Restoration works began back in 1978, and the resort is still undergoing development in order to meet our clients’ demands.
We have 25 rooms, with a maximum capacity for 76 people, that accommodate 2 to 5 guests each. Two of them have junior suites. Traditional and new materials fuse in harmony to create a modern and innovate design.
2 guest rooms are distributed in two stories, while 4 and 5 guest rooms, with all of their bedrooms, are single story. All rooms are complete with private bathroom and living room. The two-bedroom rooms also have a kitchen.
Our guests will also find a comfortable restaurant, with 90 people capacity, as well as many terraces with capacity for 15 to 50 people, offering breathtaking panoramic views, offering the unique flavor of our traditional cuisine based on local fresh products and typical dishes, as well as vegetarian food. Our menu is full of suggestive dishes such as warm chicory salad, tomato nests, migas, callos, or garlic soup. Or sole almondine, garlic lamb, baked lamb chuck, baked partridge, or special slaughtering meat brochette, among others.
The resort has a fully equipped meeting room, and an outdoor panoramic swimming pool with jacuzzi. We are open all year round, and many different nature activities can be enjoyed in our surrounding areas, such as trekking, climbing, and canoeing, as well as a great variety of cultural activities that are sponsored by local municipalities.
The place is perfect to relax and unwind.
La Garganta Rural Resort is a family business that has been developing over the years by the effort and dedication of the Garcia family. Little by little, the old wheat flour mill has been transformed into our today’s premises, a true rural tourist icon, offering our visitors the perfect place for relaxation and active tourism.
Our facilities have been renovated to our unique design, yet maintaining the original facade, and using recyclable materials, such as bricks that are over 70 years old. We have also employed construction materials from other buildings, such as arcs made from interlocking bricks, beams from the old Malaga station, ashlars from El Chorro station itself, valves from El Chorro old power plant, the winch used in El Chorro carbide factory, and many more.
