The airport is 8 km from the city of Málaga and 9 km from Torremolinos. The distance to your apartment is slightly less. There are connections with commuter train, bus and taxi. If not a lot of luggage, you can travel by train, from the airport, and get off at the stop La Colina. From this point, there is a descent, by a comfortable road with sidewalk which will lead to the appartment in about 20 minutes walk. It depends on your agility in walking.
Pls see prices for autumn/winter reserves.
