Leave the airport and drive along past the San Miguel brewery. Heading towards Malaga N-340, keep to the left lane, then take the motorway. Keep right, heading towards MOTRIL and ALMERIA.

You will now be driving on the autovia for one and a half hours (approx. 105 km) until it stops at Almuñecar. Continue on the normal road, passing on the way Salobreña and Motril, which is the nearest major town to shop in (incl. an Alcampo).

After Motril you will pass Torrenueva, Carachuna, Calahonda and reach Castell de Ferro, where you turn off. Gualchos is signposted on the left at the viaduct. Another 6 km and you will be at your destination, the house with the big window besides a purple bougainvillea.

Park the car in front of the house and walk up through the alley, where the entrance is at the back of the house.
