Dali House Portlligat (Cadeques) Location

We're looking for the location of Salvador Dali's house (museum) in Portlligat (Cadeques). The guidebook says a "20 minute walk on the beach" but we're driving. The website museum just says Cala de Portlligat. Can anyone help? Thanks.

there is a parking facility nearby the house. It looks that before arriving to Cadaques you should take the road to Portlligat to get there (there is virtually nothing else in Portlligat so you can't miss it)

However, as we were spending all day in Cadaques, we left the car somewhere in Cadaques and walked everywhere.

In visiting Cadaques, we 'stumbled' upon Dali's house in P.L. just by chance. If confused (or if you miss a sign), just follow the Cadaques U-shaped harbor around to the north (stay close to the water). Then when all seems at an end, cut over the hill

(still heading north ,but trying to stay close to the water). You will enter an area of newer modern houses (only a couple if miles from Cad.). Look for the newer road that cuts back down the hill to the beach. At the bottom of the hill you'll see a sign and parking area to Dali's house (& museum).

Tip; If interested, note the Statue of Liberty with 2 torches in hand as you enter Cadaques from the south. Also, there is a very interesting large Roman citadel (in ruins) that you can access for a fee in the beautiful neighboring seaside village of Roses (to the south).

Forgot to mention a helpful resource for this area (and all of Costa Brava) -- check out www.mapfactory.net , comes complete with links to local websites and itinerary planning. I posted a few other helpful websites in my responses to others in this forum, if needed.
