Your Route to Us

Despite the age of GPS, a good old-fashioned description of directions can be very helpful. Even if it's only to overrule the navigation system where it wants to point you the wrong way. ;-)

 

As your most probable way of coming to us is by airplane and rental car, the following directions are suited for this means of transportation. Should you plan on coming here differently, and you're not sure whether you will find our house, don't hesitate to ask us. We'll be glad to help.  

From Jerez - From Sevilla - From Málaga - From Ubrique - From Zahara de la Sierra - From Other Locations

You don't want to bother with long descriptions but rather enter the GPS coordinates directly into your navigation system? No problem. We're located at 36.8619632 degrees North and -5.4540557 degrees West. Ahoy! :-)
