Should you wish to pamper yourself, unusually this small Andalucian village has a newly renovated 18th century spa baths and a new Ritz Carlton hotel with restaurant open to non-residents. Massages, treatments and use of spa can be booked during your stay. A short drive takes you to the Andalucian lake district and the El Chorro gorge with spectacular views of the turqoise lakes surrounded by pine trees. Here you can spend days relaxing at the side of the lakes where pedalos and canoes are available for hire, and the locals come to swim. El Chorro is a world famous climbing centre.
Here you will also find some charming lakeside restaurants offering reasonably priced meals in beautiful surroundings.
