BY AIR

  • Most UK-based low-cost airlines fly to Málaga (AGP) – two hours on to Las Pinedas by road - now all motorway bar the last 3km.
  • EasyJet, Ryanair, Vueling and Iberia fly to Seville (SVQ) – one hour on to Las Pinedas – also all but last 3 km motorway.
  • Train-lovers may like to fly to Madrid (MAD), take the Metro or a taxi to Atocha Railway station, and experience the high-speed AVE train to Córdoba – 450 km in 1 hour 40 minutes. Seats on the AVE should be booked in advance via www.renfe.com. Turista class is cheapest, Turista Plus a little more comfortable, Preferente class gives best value, including free drinks and a light meal en route. The older Alvia trains are almost as fast and cost slightly less. Booking starts six weeks before the date of the train journey. Travelers aged 60 and over are entitled to a Tarjeta Dorada (Gold Card), which at the cost of a few euros entitles you to a 40% discount on all trains Monday to Thursday and a 25% discount Friday to Sunday.
  • Cars can be hired at all these destinations - only Avis, Europcar and National Atesa at Córdoba station, a wider range at Seville and Málaga airports. As there is no public transport to Las Pinedas, you will certainly need a hire car to enjoy your holiday. We suggest using a comparison website, such as travelsupermarket.com or arguscarhire.com to find the most competitive deals, and to check carefully what is included when comparing.

BY ROAD

  • Allow the better part of three days for the drive straight from UK to Andalucía using Eurotunnel or a car-ferry and the European motorway system: From experience it will take some 21-23 hours of driving at normal motorway speeds. Remember that in addition to fuel, you will need to budget for motorway tolls.
  • The overnight ferry from Portsmouth to St Malo (P&O) is the most civilised way to enter France by sea – leaving the UK early enough in the evening for a relaxed dinner and arriving in France late enough next morning for an un-rushed breakfast and an hour less to drive.
  • Ever faster ferries from Plymouth to Santander (Brittany Ferries) and Portsmouth to Bilbao (P&O) may cut your journey time to nearer two days, including a single very long day’s drive across central Spain if you are so inclined – if not, Toledo is an enchanting city for an overnight, with an excellent Parador hotel overlooking the historic old town.

BY RAIL

  • With the extension of Eurostar’s full service into St. Pancras it will be possible to travel by high-speed train all the way from London to Córdoba, via the overnight Eurotrain sleeper from Paris Gare St Lazare to Madrid – leaves at 7.30 pm, dinner on-board, arrives at 9.15 am – an adventure to savour.
