From the North (Malaga airport)
After leaving the airport area be sure to get on the A7/AP7 motorway to Algeciras. This motorway bypasses Torremolinos and Benalmadena. Just before Fuengirola there is a choice between the new toll road or 'peaje' (AP7 MARBELLA/ALGECIRAS) and the 'old' Carretera de Cadiz (A7 FUENGIROLA/ALGECIRAS).Both roads converge on the Marbella ring road. Arriving on this ringroad around Marbella it is easiest is just to follow the coast road through a small tunnel to puerto banus and straight on towards San Pedro through a long tunnel.After the San Pedro tunnel you will reach the exit to Benehavis. Take this exit and and take the road inland towards Benahavis, take the 3rd exit on the left which seems like a glf course but is actually a road, follow the road to the end and at the t-junction turn left, at the roundabout turn left and then take the first left down a lane which is signposted for the Cortijo.Location
From the south (Gibraltar / Tarifa):
Go through LA LINEA and follow the signs for MALAGA. You will come to ESTEPONA after about 30 minutes. Stay on this road for a further 10 min. and take the exit BENAHAVIS/CAMBIO DE SENTIDO. Go under the underpass and straight over the roundabout taking the road inland towards Benahavis, take the 3rd road on the left through the golf course, follow road to the end and at the t-junction turn left, at the roundabout turn left and then take the first left down a lane which is signposted for the Cortijo.
