Travel Information

Packing for your holiday

We are easy to find here in southern Spain.

Villa Guadalain is situated on a gated development near to the sea in San Pedro de Alcantara which is about 15 minutes drive west of Marbella.

Most people fly to Malaga and then collect a hire car (our preferred company listed below) from the airport and drive themselves to our villa.  There are also buses that leave regularly from Malaga airport to San Pedro.

We do recommend that you hire a car.  Even though the town, beach and restaurants are all within walking distance you will be able to do and see so much more with your own transport.

At the bottom of the page is a map to help you plan your route.

Fly to Spain


Many airlines from the UK, all over Europe and the rest of the world fly into Malaga, our nearest airport at 40 minutes drive away.  You can also fly into Gibraltar which is about an hour’s drive. British Airways and Easy Jet fly into both airports from the UK.

Sports Car


If you choose to drive there are good roads throughout Spain.  We are just off the A7 from Malaga in the small town of San Pedro de Alcantara.

If you would like to hire a car we can recommend:

Helle Hollis  Helle Hollis Car Hire

Their office is just beside Malaga Airport.  They are really helpful, will collect you in their shuttle bus when you land, and take you to their office to collect your car.  We are happy to share our Home Owners Club membership number with you to enjoy a discount on your car hire.

There are also many other car hire companies to choose from at Malaga Airport.

If driving from Malaga airport, follow signs for Cadiz/Algeciras on to the AP7 highway.  This is a toll road so you will need some Euros or a credit card.  Follow the AP7 until you see signs for San Pedro de Alcantara and the road becomes the A7.  Follow signs for San Pedro and as you near the town you will go through a tunnel.  Take the first turning out of the tunnel towards Guadalmina Baja.  Take the 2nd turning off of the roundabout and go under the road.  At the next roundabout take the 3rd turning which is Calle Lyon.  Follow this till you come to Calle Jose Echegaray and turn right on to it.  We are near to the beach at the end of the road.  We will of course give you detailed directions when you book with us.


By Taxi

There are many taxis outside Malaga or Gibraltar airports. Cost from Malaga is between €45-€60. You can also get a taxi from Marbella bus station if you come by bus.


By Bus

From Malaga airport you can get the bus to Marbella bus station.  Avanza Bus takes about 45 minutes and costs between €8-€15 approximately.  It is advisable that you then get a taxi from the bus station to San Pedro as there may be quite a long wait to get the bus to San Pedro.  Details and prices can be found on their website Anvanza Bus

Enjoy your journey and we look forward to seeing you soon.
