Lake Viñuela is a man-made reservoir that not only provides much-needed water for the surrounding area but has also been instrumental in creating a picturesque landscape within an already glorious rural locale. Prior to the creation of the reservoir, extensive archaeological excavations were carried out, producing evidence of Neolithic and Roman settlements, demonstrating the longevity of this area’s historic legacy.
Due to the lake forming part of the local water supply, the only kind of boating activities permitted are those in non-motorized vessels. Pretty beaches make this the ideal place for a family outing, away from the nearby busy coastline. Pine trees add to the sense of tranquillity and give you a feeling of being at one with nature, while they provide the perfect habitat for many different species of birds. The abundance of flora and fauna transforms this spot into a changing tapestry, depending on the season. Picnic areas have been set out, complete with barbeque facilities strategically facing south, giving the visitor the best views across the placid waters. They are only occasionally disturbed by small boats, which add a fitting splash of colour to the surroundings. All of this is set against the majestic backdrop of the nearby mountains. There is also a campsite near the lake, for those who would like to enjoy an overnight stay in this wonderful wilderness. It is only a 15min drive away from our villa !
