How to get there
Airport: Malaga: 42.3 mi
Our finca is located near El Chorro, Antequera, Málaga, Andalucia, Southern Spain.

Only 45 minuts easy drive from Malaga´s international airport Pablo Picasso. With plenty of good flight connections from UK using British Airways, Easyjet, Ryanair or Air Berlin just to mention some of them.

We do recommend the use of a car during your stay, but it is possible to use the train and a taxi to get to the finca.

The drive to our finca is very easy, to the right you will find the link with our dirrections from Malaga Airport. We do not recommend the use of GPS equipment because some of the roads around here are not on the maps. The ones using GPS on their way here tend to get lost...
