How to get to Cantueso from Málaga Airport

The road layout in and out of the airport has changed since March 2014 so even if you have been before please note the changes. When leaving the airport from a car hire pick up point (or from departures) follow signs to Malaga MA20 or MA21 both roads are signed to Motril and Almeria. If you follow either of these roads you will connect onto the A7/E15 motorway also signed to Motril and Almeria. As you leave Málaga the A7 divides and the right-hand lane goes to Granada. * Do not take this, keep in left lane and stay on A7 signed to Almeria and Motril.

You stay on the A7 for about 20 minutes until junction 272 signed Torre del Mar/Vélez Málaga/Viñuela. At bottom of slip road keep left as you will leave the roundabout signed A356 Colmenar and Viñuela. The A356 continues almost all the way to Periana (about 24 Km total). Follow signs to Alhama. After about 15-20 mins. at the kilometre marker post for 36 Km you will go up a long hill with crawler lane. After this watch carefully for the Kilometre post 35 (they are counting down), as 100 yards after this is the right turn. Easy to miss. It is signed to A402 Alhama and Periana. If you end up going over a long bridge with the lake on your right, you have missed the turn!

When you get the right turn, it is a slip road, which after a few yards joins a road which leads past the Hotel Viñuela with the lake on your left and is still the A402.

After a couple of miles, you will see, on the left, a petrol station “An Gas” painted black, yellow and red. Just after this there is a large shop on left with the end wall painted with a sign “Maroma” just before traffic lights. Turn left at the lights signed to Periana – now the A7204. Now follow winding road over stone bridge (you have to give way to on-coming traffic) and later under railway arch, turn right and keep on up to Periana.

Past a factory “Perimetal” and then as you enter the built up area there are some shops on the right- hand side, and shortly thereafter a pedestrian crossing and roundabouts, turn sharp right.

Follow the road up the hill into the countryside. After about half a mile (0.6 km) there is a bend in the road with a right turn and there are several signs in front of you including one for “Cantueso”.

Turn right and keep right, onto an unmade road. If you have the correct turn you will now see a long yellow wall on your left. Follow road until after about half a mile (0.4 km) there is a fork in the road with Cantueso sign, and you keep right, and can now see Cantueso ahead and to the right, a white building on top of a hill.

Turn right into the next track and you have arrived!
