The pretty pool is large (10m x 5m, from 1 m – 1.5 m deep) and has an hydrolyse system (i.e. it is cleaned with a system based on salt).

Out and About

The Subbética de Córdoba has been in the center of the vast Moorish empire,  Al-Andalus. Thus there are many remains of Moorish culture in this region.

The whitewashed village of Iznájar has some interesting sights, like a Moorish castle dating from the 8th Century and church from the 16th Century. From Iznájar you have spectacular view over the Embalse de Iznájar. It is great for swimming and water sports are enjoyed on its sandy Valdearenas Beach.

Apart from the beautiful scenery of the Subbética Natural Park and its many delightful villages there are numerous remains of ancient civilizations in the area. You could easily visit the Alhambra in Granada, the Mezquita in Córdoba, the bridge over the Tajo in Ronda, or the Alcazar and Giralda in Seville.

El Torcal Natural Park (near Antequera, app. 30 minutes) is definitely worth a visit. On your trips in this area you will see many enchanting ‘Pueblos Blancos’ clinging to spectacular mountain locations.

An easy drive away are the Mediterranean beaches and golf courses.
