Taxis

Airport taxis to us will set you back 160 plus Euros. If you would like us to arrange a taxi for outside of those times, expect to pay around 100 euros for a driver from our village, car hire from the airport can be less, just depending on the season.

Bus

If you're arriving by local Bus...You´ll need to find your own way to the townhouse as our van driver will be at the airport. Instructions and a map for the house are found here or you'll see us on Google maps at the top of town.

Car Hire

If you would like to visit any of the towns we fly over in the evening after flying then hire cars are the way forward. We can now recommend a reliable car firm that offers cars from any of the local airports.

Accommodation

Our house is lovely but it´s not a hotel there are no ensuites and prices are based on two sharing, if you're a woman then you'll more than likely get a room to yourself but if you want to guarantee a room to your self, tick the single room supplement on the form. You will be staying in our house in the village with full kitchen facilities, washing machine, etc. The house is non-smoking but there is the freedom of the terrace to practice!

Towels and linen are provided, so is electricity(!) hairdryers, safety deposit boxes...just bring your toothbrush & glider

Single person supplements are available for £150

The village and eating out

The area you will be visiting is, in our opinion, one of the finest and most beautiful regions in all of Southern Spain. The area is steeped in history as well as the stunning countryside. The village of Algodonales boasts plenty of tapas bars and food and drink is incredibly cheap by comparison to the UK. Breakfast is available in the square if you wish, or feel free to shop and eat in the house.

During the day we can, if requested, provide a packed lunch at an additional cost of 50 euros per week. Evenings you will get a chance to peruse the choice in the village. As for cash you can use all debit cards in the village cash machines but quite often there is a limit to how much one can draw in a day unless you have a prior arrangement with your bank.

Outstanding balance
