Lake Viñuela – a beautiful place to walk, cycle or barbeque

Just ten minutes’ drive North of Escuela La Crujia is the most magnificent and beautiful man-made reservoir known as La Viñuela.  It provinces water for the whole area and often for Malaga city and is essential for our existence here.  But it is also a most beautiful place to visit.A tan solo 10 minutos en coche desde Escuela La Crujía se encuentra el magnífico Pantano de la Viñuela.  Suministra agua a toda la zona, y regularmente a la ciudad de Málaga.  Pero aparte de ser un recurso esencial para nosotros, es un lugar de gran belleza.

Day trip to Alhama de Granada

This lovely town is totally trapped in time!  It still has very old fashioned little shops and lovely, crumbling buildings that look more central European than Southern Spanish!  Perched precariously on steep, deep ‘tajo’ (gorge), this is a most ‘visitable’, picturesque town, frequented by walking groups and curious tourists and well worth a day trip.
