We definitely recommend a rental car, preferably an all-terrain one, since our driveway is a gravel road, and you have to cross a small river for the last stretch. There is also a train station in Estación de Jimena, from there you can go to Ronda, but you are independent by car and can easily explore the beautiful area around us.
Check-in is from 3 p.m. to 4 p.m., check-out is at 11 a.m. We ask you to let us know your arrival time in advance, so that we can be sure to be there for you personally. You are welcome to check in later by arrangement, earlier is unfortunately not possible.

Please do not be surprised, the journey is a bit adventurous.In good weather:Coming from the coast on the A-405 at km 24 (Christmas) turn left onto the gravel road, you cross a small river bed and at the end of the path turn right along the railway tracks. Immediately after the level crossing, the second gate on the left is the main entrance to our hotel.
In case of heavy rain you have to keep going until the village of Jimena de la Frontera and at the top of the village at the Cuenca restaurant turn left onto Calle Pasada de Alcalá.

At the goatherd (corner property with lots of animals on the street) leave the paved road and continue straight ahead.
