CREIXELL (pronounced creshell) can easily be reached travelling by car. If your journey is combined with a stopover in France, the village is located only 20 kilometres from the french border. It is just minutes away driving south from Figueres on the Nacional N11 or Exit no. 4 off the Motorway (AP7).

If you are approaching the turn off to Creixell from the Girona direction i.e. travelling north towards France (Francia) on the Nacional N11, turn right towards GARRIGAS and then make a U turn and face the turn off to Creixell and drive straight across the road. This advice is given because the N11 is frequently used by large lorries that may find it difficult to slow down if someone tries to turn left suddenly. There have been many changes to the landscape in this area with the recent addition of new roads and roundabouts (rondas). Sat. Nav. Systems may not be as efficient in finding this location, so you will have to depend on old fashioned map reading, remember that!

Car hire can easily be arranged for pick up at any of the Airports of the region and recommended websites are:-
www.ryanair.com, www.easyjet.com, www.doyouspain.com, www.hertz.com & www.avis.co.uk
