Los Romanes and the Axarquía region
Los Romanes is a 15 minute walk or 5 minutes by car and has very good restaurants which have an excellent reputation with the locals and holiday makers, two small super markets, local bakery and butchers, village bars and an olive mill. One of the best restaurants in the area is called El Charco, commonly known as Miguel's. There are other excellent restaurants on the lake shore 5 minutes by car where the views are spectacular, as well as an Indian restaurant with an outside eating area, again with equally amazing views on the way down to the lake. There are more restaurants and shops about a 5 minute drive in the village of Puente don Manuel. The local goat herder often 'walks' his goats down the hillside and it is always a fantastic sight, the age old traditions are still alive and well.
Lake Viñuela offers non-motorised water sports, sailing, windsurfing, kayaking and fishing. There are many splendid walks around the lake and in spring the wild flowers are bountiful. The Axarquía region is excellent for hiking, mountain biking and horse trekking. There is a water park 15 minutes away at Torre Del Mar and there are other water parks and theme parks near Málaga.
There are some typically Spanish bars and restaurants in the small whitewashed mountain villages such as Comares, Periana and Alcaucin nearby to explore. A short 20 minute drive takes you to the coast, a major shopping centre, Velez-Malaga the attractive capital of the region, and the bustling Spanish seaside resort of Torre del Mar with its famous fish restaurants and wonderful beach “chiringuitos” offering the local delicacy the “espeto” (sardines on a skewer) for just 5 euros!
