If coming from Barcelona, take the A-7 highway towards Girona and then Exit 9A (Salida 9A) towards the coast. Follow signs to Santa Cristina d'Aro and Platja d'Aro. Once past Platja d'Aro, (going north) you'll soon see a large Champion supermarket after a couple of kilometers. Turn right after the supermarket, straight towards the sea, right again on the beach road and after about 100 meters you can find us in front of the Tourist Office that's on the beach. We are slightly recessed from the road.
If you're coming from the north on the A-7, take Exit 7, head towards Cassa, Llagostera, then Santa Cristina d'Aro and continue as explained above. Otherwise, if already on the coast, you can come via Palafrugell, Palamos and then Sant Antoni de Calonge. (When getting close to Palamos don't take the exits to that town, but continue on the main road until you see the signs indicating Sant Antoni.) Torre Valentina is just south of Sant Antoni de Calonge. Don't confuse Sant Antoni de Calonge with Calonge, they are two separate towns.
Another alternative, curvy but nice, is the road to Calonge that winds through the hills from La Bisbal. If you are entering La Bisbal from the north, you can find this road just at the traffic lights after crossing the bridge in the center of town. Turn right there and it's about 14-16 kms. to Calonge. Go through Calonge, continue on the main road going towards the sea and after 4 or 5 kms. turn right at the first roundabout. Very shortly after (about 70 or 90 meters) take a right turn (you'll see a sign to Torre Valentina) that takes you round and under the main road to pop up in front of the supermarket. Turn left and you'll be facing the sea. Continue to the beach, right again until you find the Tourist Office.
One can take trains to the Costa Brava from either the main train station at Barcelona Sants or at the Paseo de Gracia/Aragon station. Get off at Caldes de Malavella, the nearest station to us.
Barcelona is the nearest international airport that operates year-round, but for our visitors from the U.K., Girona has an airport that takes flights from Heathrow, Bournemouth, and Manchester. It is much closer than Barcelona but is only operative during the summer season.
