Hotel Finca el Cerrillo Directions

Directions from Malaga Airport to Finca el Cerrillo

  • Journey time approx 1 hour from airport. 30 mins along motorway / 30 mins inland.
  • Inland stretch is winding and steep in parts - take it steady!
  • Our phone number is (00 34) 952 030 444 or 636 921 252 (mobile) If calling from a UK mobile note that you may need to enter the code for Spain - 0034.

From the airport / car-hire depot follow signs for Malaga (not Torremolinos).

After 2 - 3 kilometres get into the right hand lane ready to take the slip road off to the right - the Motril / Almeria road.

Stay on the motorway heading for Almeria for about 30 mins.

Leave the motorway at exit number 277 Algorrobo / Caleta and turn inland heading for Canillas Albaida and Competa. There is a petrol station at this point with toilets and phone if needed.

As you go through Algarrobo, you come to a small roundabout. Bear to the right across the river (the 2nd exit ) - DON'T go around the roundabout into Algarrobo village.)

Stay on this road. After about 15 mins you will reach a village called Sayalonga. Continue for approx another 10 mins until you come to a very sharp left turn signposted to Archez and Corumbela. This tricky junction is best described as a 'Y' junction and you need to take the left, downhill road. (NB Ignore signs to Competa and Canillas de Albaida.)

This road will bring you to the village of Archez. At this point, there are 2 ways to get to the Finca. We recommend the slightly longer route for your first visit!

In Archez, turn left and go over the bridge. Take the road on your right signposted to Sedella and Salares. After about 5 mins you will reach a sign at the top of a hill saying 'Fogarate.' Turn right here and keep right (DO NOT go left up towards Fogarate) follow the road as it snakes towards the white village of Canillas. Keep right if in doubt at any point. Finca el Cerrillo is on your right.
