Visited the lake which was next to the Banos and restaurant. The lake is peaceful and has beautiful views. Swimming in June was a bit cold but refreshing.

Go to the mirador for a fantastic view over the lake, or to Freila 'beach' with its restaurant and easy access into the water for canoes, kayaks etc or swimming

We visited here last year for the first time and again last month. Its a lovely place with a vast expanse of water. Really didn't expect to see such a place in Granada Province couple of good bars and restaurants with amazing views easy parking.

Absolutely beautiful setting. Drove round the lake, disappointed to find the thermal bath closed and apparently disused now, but kept driving and found the recreation area at Freila and glad we did. Not many people around, one windsurfer skimming the water and a few kids...More

This is one of the most beautiful Lakes and Recreation areas I have seen. Hidden away in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, it is quite simply vast. We have been there two years running in the Spring and never disapointed. Motor boats are...More
