We are an hour and a half by car from Jerez airport (Ryanair), and a two hour drive from Gibraltar airport (Monarch and British Airways), Sevilla airport (Ryanair), and Málaga airport (Monarch, Easyjet, Aer Lingus and others). The drive from Jerez is particularly pretty.
If you are coming to The Hoopoe by public transport the easiest airport to arrive at is Gibraltar. Walk out of the airport and across the border (a couple of hundred metres), then hop into a taxi to San Roque (10 to 15 minutes) and then onto the train to Cortes de la Frontera (50 minutes) where we can pick you up.
Directions from Jerez
Follow signs for Jerez on the A4 until you see signs for A382 for Arcos de la Frontera. Take the A382 to Arcos and continue around to the left side of Arcos (do not go into town) and after a long curve down hill turn right onto A372 for El Bosque and Ubrique. Just before El Bosque (km 28) turn right onto the A373 for Ubrique. Go through the middle of Ubrique on the one way system (at the Cajamar Bank turn right for Jimena and Algeciras) and continue out of Ubrique (left at T junction on top of ridge) on the A373 to Cortes de la Frontera.

Cross the border to La Linea. Take the N351 towards the coast road N340. When you reach the N340 go south towards Algeciras for a couple of kilometres. At exit 115 take the A405 towards Jimena de la Frontera and Ronda. Stay on this road past Jimena and Gaucín. About 7 kilometres past Gaucín, turn left towards Cortes de la Frontera. Go down the hill and through Estación de Cortes and up the other side to Cortes.
