From Almeria Airport (approx 50 minutes 51 miles 82 kilometers) go out straight over the first and second roundabouts on the N347 heading inland.   Do not be tempted to take the first right which is the old coast road AL12 (signed Nijar El Toyo Murcia)  but instead go straight on (bearing slightly right at the next roundabout) and continue about 4km to the main junction with the E15 A7 (Autovia del Mediterraneo) take the first exit to the right up onto the motorway towards MERCIA.

Proceed for about 60km and exit signed  Los Gallados, Garrucha and Mojacar N340a. Straight over the first roundabout to Los Gallados  and stay on the main road down the hill. Then right at the petrol station, to  Garrucha Turre and Mojacar A370. Go approximately 5km and take the exit right signed Mojacar. Follow this road up to a roundabout where there is a CEPSA petrol station. THIS PETROL STATION IS THE MEETING PLACE IF YOU ARE BEING MET.

To find the Villa if you are not being met:

Take the first exit off the roundabout to the Pueblo (the old town up the hill) but then immediately  turn left to go behind the petrol station on the tarmac lane that runs behind it - El Camino de las Marinas. Proceed for about two miles passing the CASA RURAL/CORTIGO DE LA MEDIO LUNA on your left. About 100 yards after the Casa Rural just as you go over a small brow, there is an un-made track to the right. Go 50 yards down the track and right again signed to Casa Guillermo.
Or: If you want to go via the sea-front first... From the roundabout by the Cepsa Station, the second exit will take you down past the Parque Comercial (commercial centre) to Mojacar Playa (Mojacar beach) . At the bottom of the hill you will come to a roundabout with the Commercial Centre (Shopping centre) on your left. Take the first exit turning right and follow the Paseo Mediterraneo going south with the sea on your left. Go for about 500mtrs, past the Paradores (on your right) then straight over another roundabout. Then another 500mtrs or so until you see a large thatched beach restaurant/club ahead of you on the left called “The Mandala”.  Approx 50m before The Mandala turn right just  besides the “Buffet Mediterraneo” down what is marked on maps as Camino del Pintor  (There is also a sign to “Cortigo Los Hornicos” on this turning). The road runs out of tarmac after 50mtrs as it becomes, again on the maps,  Rambla de las Marinas.

Don’t be put off by what is now little more than a dirt track! Carry on slowly for 500mtrs or so until the road becomes tarmac again. As it does you will see a couple of houses on your right. Ignore the first entrance which is a private drive but almost immediately after it, turn right into Calle Olivares (street of olives) by the pink wall. Pass the houses and carry on 200mtrs or so until you come to a T junction with the road called the Camino de Las Marinas - though you won’t know it as there is no sign at this point.  As you approach this junction you can actually see the Villa directly in front of you up on the hill side.

To get to it, turn right again (almost straight on) and go for 100 mtrs and take the first possible entrance on your left into an unmade track which leads to several houses. Go 50mtrs and turn right up the first possible branch of the track signed to the Villa. Go another 50mtrs to the entrance gates.

NOTE WHEN GOING OUT: To drive to different parts of Mojacar Playa you can either come out of the entrance and turn left on the Camino de las Marinas which will take you up to the Pueblo and/or down to the Commercial Centre via the main road and roundabout you first came in on. Or you can turn right and go down to some of the really lovely beaches at the southern end of the playa.

WALKING – Walking to the beach takes about 12 minutes via the Calle Olivares, Rambla de las Marinas and Camino del pintor.
