By Coach 

To get to Vélez Rubio by public transport (coach) you will need to use the ALSA coach service...

If you have a smart phone we recommend the ALSA App as you do not need to print a ticket, it is held in the App.

By Train

The nearest train station is Lorca Sutellena* via RENFE

or RENFE local trains called Cercaníasvia Alicante/Murcia

* Note: the train can only take you as far as Lorca which is still an hour from Los Gázquez. We do not collect from Lorca.

By Taxi

It is possible to take a taxi from your arrival point to Vélez Blanco. From either Granada, Almería, Murcia (San Javier) or Alicante airports expect to pay in the region of €120

By Plane (within Europe)

The nearest airports within Spain are Granada, Almería, Murcia (San Javier*) and Alicante. Each are approximately two hours from Vélez Blanco.

We highly recommend flying to Granada as it is an opportunity to see one of the most beautiful historic cities of 'El Andaluz' including the Alhambra Palace**. The journey from Granada to Los Vélez is also dramatically stunning passing as it does behind the Sierra Nevada.

* it is exceptionally difficult to take public transport from Murcia San Javier to Murcia City (change for Los Vélez) and is not recommended. The airport services coastal tourism.

** if you wish to visit the Alhambra Palace it is advisable to book tickets at least three months in advance.

By Plane (international)

If you are travelling to Spain international flights arrive in Madrid, Barcelona and Málaga* (*summer only). From any of these destinations you can take an internal connecting flight to one of our nearest destinations such as Granada.

It is also possible to take the ALSA coach directly to Vélez Rubio from any of these arrival airports.

Note: it may be more cost effective to fly to London and catch a budget flight from there to any of the airports mentioned above.
