Ardales Park

Ardales Park

Andalucia is the real Spain - long sunny days, mountains covered with groves of olive, orange and lemon trees; villages full of tapas bars, and the most charming of people. All this can be enjoyed in Ardales, yet it is less than an hour from the Costa del Sol. Imagine if you can three beautiful turquoise lakes  bordered by huge pine forests. A peaceful hideaway where you can swim or fish, take a picnic on the lake shore.
