We stay about an hours drive from here and love this place. Our children much prefer the lakes to the beach. The photographs do not do it justice as the lakes are turquoise in Summer. What I always find surprising is the amount of people who live quite locally though they have never heard of them let alone visited. The title is so apt as it is a "hidden gem".Edited: 11:17 am, November 16, 2012
I totally agree although I've not been there for a few years. I used to love taking a dip and even did a bit of fishing one year catching some carp.
A truly beautiful spot and a great day out for anyone!
I'm with you on this one Benny, this is a lovely area. I particularly like the small town of Teba with its historical connection to Scotland. And it is true to say that the lake is turquoise in colour during the summer. Here you are only a short car journey from my home from home in Olvera and the turquoise lake at Embalse de Zahara and the beautiful white village of Zahara de la Sierra.
Thank goodness our local lake - Lake Vinuela - is back to being its usual beautiful turquoise colour today after a couple of weeks of steel grey!Edited: 5:43 am, November 19, 2012
