View Larger Map

Salobrena is located between Almunecar and Motril. The jewel of the Costa Tropical, Salobrena, is a whitewashed township clinging to huge lump of rock just back from the shoreline, topped by a Moorish castle and surrounded by lush sugar cane plantations.

Salobrena is about one hour drive from Malaga, 45 minutes from Granada, and just over an hour to the Sierra Nevada mountains. Salobrena is also ideally situated for exploring the Las Alpujarras, some forty minutes away. From October to April, you could be in the happy position of being able to ski during the day and return to sunbathe on Salobrena's long, clean beach in the evening.

   Car Rentals -

The best way to reach Villa Renna is by renting a car, and it is essential to have one for your visit so you can explore the area.

There are all the major companies at Malaga There are also a number of local companies with desks at the airport, or even more local ones who will deliver a car to the airport for you.

In my experience you can get some of the best deals with brokers such as Car Hire Direct, CarJet Iberia , Holiday Autos, or Skycars. In many cases, by booking through agents such as these you get a car from a major Car Rental company - Hertz or Alamo for example - at much lower rates than you would get from the companies themselves.

We also recommend HelleHollis. Their prices are quite reasonable and if you use our home owner's discount code ( H2416 ) when you make a booking online you will receive 15% discount.
