Getting there

Please note that prices for the holidays do not include flights. We recommend using to check flights (scroll down to the right). Or, if you are flying from the UK and prefer a more personal flight booking service, contact NC Travel Services now.

Nearest airports:
Almeria, Alicante, Granada or Murcia (under 200km away)

Note: If you are not hiring a car, we recommend flying to Alicante, Almeria or Granada as public transport from these airports is available

By taxi:
Taxis are available outside all airports although the holidays are located in a rural location and can be expensive. We do recommend you book a private car transfer in advance for ease of travel and to fix a price for a taxi.

Pre-booked taxi transfers:
Taxis can be pre-booked for 100 Euros one way (per car, for up to 4 people):

Transfer times
Almeria or Murcia airports – 1 hour 45 minutes
Granada or Alicante airports – 2 hours

The cost is paid to the creative retreat upon arrival. To confirm your transfer, if you have added this on to your booking at the time of confirming your course, please provide your full flight arrival and departure information within 14 days of your travel date.

Public Transport:
Public transport tends to be easier from Granada or Alicante airports where there is a bus to the nearest village called Vélez Rubio.

Note: Alicante airport coaches stop for a siesta between 2 and 4. To get to the retreat the same day it is recommended that you book a flight that arrives in Alicante before midday so you can arrive in Vélez Rubio after lunch.

Bus from Granada direct to Vélez Rubio – 2.5 hours
Bus from Alicante airport via Murcia city to Vélez Rubio – 3-3.5 hours

Bus from Almeria airport to Puerto Lumbreras which is a village 50minutes from the school, you can then arrange a collection by private car from the bus station in Puerto Lumbreras for 20 Euros

Note: there is no public transport from Murcia airport

We strongly recommend car hire with these holidays as it is usually the easiest and cheapest way to reach the school.
