A little beyond El Chorro are 3 stunningly beautiful lakes bordered by pine forests. A tranquil retreat where you can swim or fish, or hire a pedalo from the lake shore. There are a selection of restaurants, some offering fantastic views.

The historic town of Antequera is a 40 min drive from the house - Malaga and the Costa del Sol may be less than 45 minutes drive away to the south, but the unique town of Antequera feels a world away from the excesses of the kiss-me-quick coast, and provides one of the regions historical and architectural showpieces. Time Out Andalucia.
If you venture to Antequera you really ought to take time to visit El Torcal and experience its pre-historic atmosphere, created by mountains that have been gnarled, serrated, splintered and fractured over 150 million years to create weird shaped rock formations. A BBQ, a moonlit walk, and howling wolves! About 35 mins from the house, on the road to Antequera, is this fascinating place, Lobo Park. Run by wolf lover, Daniel, and his team this unspoilt wildlife park is home to 4 types of wolves - European, Timber, the rare White Alaska Tundra wolves and Iberian wolves. One of the most fun things to do is go on on a ‘howl night’!
