Fifteen minutes from the house is the very popular Lobo Park (Wolf Park) where you can see the wolves being fed and they have Howling Nights which sounds scary. There is an English speaking girl from the village who works there and their web site is http://www.lobopark.com/
Fun On The Lakes
There is a company called Indian Sports by the lakes http://indiansport.es
and you will find them by the lakes and you would need to book a place one or two days before.
They have a circuit during the morning of abseiling, archery and canoeing.
This costs around 22 € for adults and 18€ for 10—16 year olds.
Very young children would not be allowed to abseil but could participate in the canoeing with a family adult.
They don’t speak much English but we could help you book if necessary.
There are also pedalos and canoes for hire on the lakes.
And of course it is fun to swim in the lakes as an alternative to your private swimming pool at our villas.

Caves At Nerja
Las Cuevas de Nerja (the Caves of Nerja) are a series of naturally formed caves and caverns in the hills of Maro, 4km North-East of Nerja, some of which have taken up to two million years to form. The caves contain the widest naturally-formed column in the world, at 32m high and 13x7m at its base. Formed by the merging of a stalagmite and stalactite, it has held the Guinness World Record since 1989. The caves also famously host the annual Nerja International Festival of Music and Dance. A visit to these caves is a truly unique experience. In 2010 the caves were the most visited attraction in Málaga province.
Less than an hours drive from Loma la Parra and La Majada Alta you will find El Torcal mountain with one of the most dramatic and exceptional karstic landscapes in Europe. This surreal and lunar limestone plateau, dating from the Jurassic period, is riven by deep gullies and characterised by its fantastically weathered natural sculptures..
The whole area was under the sea until 150 million years ago. The violent movements of the earth’s crust then forced it upwards into hills and mountains, some 1,300m high. The limestone retained its horizontal strata, which over the years have been eroded by the rain and wind to form the incredible shapes you can see today.
It is an amazing place to visit and there are marked trails to help you navigate this incredible place.
There is a visitors center and restaurant at the top.
