Mrs WS and I stayed at Brenda's (casaianda) in October,we had an excellent time.It is a lovely spot but you defo need a car.I have no problems with hiring cars in Spain as I have been doing so for 30 years.OK it is left hand drive but once you have got used to the car it is a doddle.Don't misunderstand me you have to keep your wits about you.

Casaianda gave me brilliant printed directions of driving from Malaga Airport to hers.The one thing that foxed us was the Motorway Exit numbers.

Here in UK the exits are in numerical order and sequence.As I was driving the excellent hired Peugeot 307 Diesel away from AGP and following cas's directions we easily got onto the motorway going eastwards in the direction of Seville.I said to Mrs WS we are a long way from our exit for the mountain road to Casa Ianda.Little did I know that the exit numbers off the motorway are not in sequence but are numbered by the number of kms from the regional capital.Remember this.So you might pass Exit 90, the next exit won't be 91 or 89 as you would expect but eg 78 .

Our son and his partner are going to Nerja in Feb and hiring a car. I am going to give them casaianda's printed directions of how to get on the correct motorway.

My No 1 tip would be San -Nav best investment I ever made.

I did a day trip suggested by Brenda when we stayed in Nerja and it was a complete doddle using the Sat-Nav.

We also did a trip to the Alpahara mountains as suggested by a Spanish colleague from Granada. Once again the drive was fantastic with the Sat-Nav guiding us all the way there and back.
