Safety cover swimming pool

This for the safety of our smallest friends ! Take care of it and use it when there little children. Also it helps a lot to keep the heat in the water of the swimming pool during the colder nights in springtime and autumn.

Heating swimming pool

We are using sun collectors. This means we need the sun heat. Practically we have very good results from April till mid November, of course in combination with the safety cover.

But also the procession in Antequera is marvellous! Less “big” but therefore more “charming”: the procession on Eastern Sunday in Almogia.
