A Greeting from The owner

Welcome to Casa Elisa! 

We hope that you will enjoy your stay at our home in Spain, just as much as we do! We want you to feel relaxed, and at home in this Swedish/Spanish family-house. This house has been in our family for approx. 17 years. Both our families have lived in Almunecar a great deal of the time, and we always spend as much time as we can of our holidays here in Almunecar.

At first it was Peters parents who owned the house, and in 2015 Peter and Elisabeth took over, and celebrated the occasion with their engagement up at The Cross of Almunecar overlooking the ocean.

 

We hope you have a nice time and really feel at home in our home in Almunecar, Casa Elisa! 

Kind regards and Welcome!

 

Elisabeth & Peter

Arrival & departure information

/ GETTING YOURSELF ORIENTED

Almuñécar lies in the province of Granada, in an area called Costa Tropical, between Nerja (Málaga) and Motril, 90 km from Malaga airport and within an hours drive from Granada and the ski resort of the Sierra Nevada. Further inland there are miles and miles of Andalucian countryside to explore.

 

Almunecar has a subtropical climate and has some 3,500 hours of annual sunshine and temperatures that average 30ºC in summer and 15º during the short winter.

There are around 27,700 inhabitants (2012) living here.

The town is backed by rugged hills, valleys and agricultural land of olive groves, almond and carob trees.

Casa Elisa is located is the area of San Cristobal a private location, with villas and views of the Mediterranean sea, but is only a short walk from the beaches and shops. If you follow the promenade with shops, restaurants and bars you will reach the old town in about 15 minutes. Almuñécar's old town is perfect to explore with its small shops and winding alleyways and of course the old castle and museum.

The old quarter of the town is virtually unchanged with narrow, winding streets, whitewashed houses with wrought iron terraces overflowing with flowers. Take some time to explore this uniques place.

The buses are every 20 to 30 minutes from 07:00 until 24:00 (from the airport) or 06:25 until 23:30 (to the airport). The journey time is about 30 minutes, but the buses are comfy and air-conditioned.

Train from Málaga Airport to Málaga City:

 

September 10th 2010 saw the construction of a new RENFE train station at the Malaga airport, 30 metres from the terminal building, meaning an end to long treks with heavy bags. It is a very quick, convenient and easy way to get to Málaga bus station or the Málaga city. The suburban train station forms part of the Terminal T3 building. The train journey takes 11 minutes and costs €1,80 each way.

First train from the airport to Malaga-Centro Alhameda is at 06.44 and then every 20 minutes until 00:03.

RENT A CAR

If you rent a car at Malaga airport its is very easy to get out and on to the motorway to Almunecar. Head out of the airport (there is only one way out) and you will join the M23. Keep on this road until you join the M20 in direction: Motril and Almeria. You are then on the AUTOVÍA del MEDITERRANEO (A7).  Carry on following the large blue signs to: ALMERIA, CORDOBA, GRANADA and SEVILLA the A7,E15 and A45 . Several kms further on after leaving Málaga - the motorway splits to the right to Granada, Cordoba and Sevilla (DO NOT take this) but follow signs straight on for ALMERÍA and MOTRIL.

This motorway follows the coast all the way to Almunecar.

Leave the highway at the junction Almunecar Oueste and La Herradura.

Drive past La Herradura and towards Almuñecar. At the first traffic light in Almuñecar take a very sharp right hand turn this is the road that leads down to Casa Elisa.

or alternatively meet us in the market square which is next to Mc. Donald's and we will guide you to the house.

PARKING

Casa Elisa has a garage with space for one car. There is also space for parking on the quiet residential street just outside the front gate.

Regarding parking in Almunecar:

There are various parkings spaces all around town. The free ones are painted white, and the ones you have to pay for during summer are painted blue.

The amount of parking spaces varies a lot from high season in comparison the rest of the year. In summer when Almunecar is full of summer guests, it can be a bit tricky to find parking. The rest of the year it is usually no problem at all. 

SUGGESTIONS IF YOU ARRIVE EARLY

If you arrive before the designated check-in time. The good news is that there is plenty to do. We often suggest that guests visit the grocery store and do some shopping.
