There is a lot to do around the local area but you would need a vehicle and preferably a 4x4 however the road could be made better to accommodate any vehicle ! We have beautiful lakes and rivers to swim in , hot springs , paragliding , beach is about an hour and half but inland is much more beautiful , with mountain walks etc and many restaurants and bars in the towns nearby , the nearest being Castril which has banks tobacconists , supermarkets and shops bars and restaurants and hotels and a rickety bridge walk over the river and leads back to my house if you like walking ! , Huéscar and Baza are also nearby bigger towns and have much more to offer .baza is where the local bus st is . there is also a little village a few mile away with the local shop selling absolutely everything you need and 2 bars which both still give tapas with a beer . The local swimming pools open in July and cost a couple of euros to get in and the local campsite is nice with seperate bbq areas , you can have a nice little holiday aswel as volunteering for very low cost
