Travel information

Travelling to your rental villa

For most of our guests it is easiest to travel to Andalucía by plane, and then drive to their holiday destination by rental car.  Nowadays it is very easy – and much cheaper –  to book your flights yourselves, and the same goes for car hire. For detailed information check-out our  Flights  and Car hire section.

On each of our villa pages the driving times to relevant local airports are detailed at the end of the villa description. Please bear in mind that when you arrive at your destination airport, you will need app. one hour to leave the airport with your luggage and rental car, and then still have some travelling to do before you reach your villa.

We strongly advise to choose an early flight. Thus you have a holiday already on the day of arrival and have an extra day to enjoy. You can travel at ease during the daytime, and will be able to enjoy the lovely views on your way.  To arrive in the dark is extremely unpleasant, especially since many of our properties are located in the ‘campo’, sometimes even in a Natural Park. In these areas you will not have any illumination to guide you, and it may be very hard to find your way in the dark. If you arrive early in the area, a relaxed lunch on a terrace is a perfect way to celebrate the start of your holiday.


Please inform Vida Rústica as soon as possible of your expected arrival time.  Check-in is usually between 16.00 and 18.00 hrs; occasionally during the booking process a different arrival or departure time can be agreed upon. Please note that the house manager will only be available to let you in at the time agreed in advance. If you inform Vida Rústica less than 48 hours before your arrival of your expected arrival time, there might be no one available to let you in, and that we would like to prevent.

Bear in mind that the house owner or house manager will be waiting at the house to welcome you and let you in. Since most of them do not live very close to the property that you have rented, it is impossible for them to wait for you for hours if you have a late arrival, unless you have made explicit arrangements upon booking.

If your flight is delayed do call the house manager as soon as possible. You can find the number at the first page of the Information Pack that you will receive once your booking is confirmed and secured by payment of the deposit.. If this is not possible please call your contact at Vida Rústica, then we can ensure that you will be able to enter the house upon arrival.


Departure usually is 10.00 latest, unless it is stated differently in the Specific House Information.


You will find detailed directions to the house in the information package that you will receive once your booking is confirmed and secured by payment of the deposit.
