Motril Car Hire

There are so many wonderful day trips and excursions to be enjoyed from Motril that you'll probably want to hire a car for at least part of your holiday. Granada is only 40 minutes drive away and boasts one of Spain's top tourist attractions - the fabulous Moorish palace of Alhambra with its magnificent royal rooms, fountains, Arabic courtyards and the famous Generalife Gardens. Make sure you book tickets before you go in high season or you may not get in.

Another 45 minutes drive on from Granada and you'll be in the ski resort of Sol y Nieve in the Sierra Nevada mountain range - a beautiful drive at any time of year.

Or head south of the sierra into the wonderful wilderness of the Alpujarras - arguably Spain's most spectacular region where tiny ancient villages cling impossibly to mountain peaks and life seems not to have changes for centuries.

In the Andalucian hinterland you can explore the delightful "white villages" of Frigiliana and Competa and visit the fascinating medieval town of Ronda with its breathtaking gorge.

The fascinating Caves of Nerja, with Europe's longest stalactite and paintings from 20,000 BC, are a short drive west along the coast.

The historic and vibrant cities of Seville, Cadiz, Jerez and Cordoba are all within easy driving distance as is the hotly disputed rock of Gibraltar. If you're visiting Gibraltar be prepared for long delays at the control point (apparently caused by a deliberate go slow on the part of the miffed Spanish authorities!)
