Make a holiday rental apartment or property in Loja, Spain your home away from home

Loja lies in a narrow, barren valley in the Grenada Province of Andalucia, Spain. Loja is an ancient town, dating back as far as the Moors, and now concealing a great range of architectural treasures from throughout the ages. Loja is a wonderfully picturesque town, steeped in Andalucian charm, and filled with monuments from throughout the long history of the area. Outdoor sports thrive in the varied landscapes surrounding Loja, providing the chance to enjoy a wonderfully varied holiday in ‘real’ Spain, with both extreme natural beauty and historical heritage in abundance.

Things to do in Loja, Spain

Loja properties are located right on the edge of the Los Intiernos de Loja Natural Monument, a series of beautiful waterfalls carving their way through the limestone valley. There can be few places better than Los Intiernos de Loja for riverside picnics, and with excellent access to the barren landscapes of the Sierra de Loja Mountains, you cannot afford to miss this beautiful region from a Loja property rental. The Sierra Loja are wild and barren, with limestone geology that makes the region a veritable playground for potholers, walkers and cavers.

The surrounding countryside is a maze of contradictions. To the east, barren limestone landscapes give way to lush, undulating hills, covered in olive groves and littered with small, atmospheric farmhouses. This side of Loja is a haven for walking, mountain biking and horse riding, all of which thrive from accommodation in Loja. Further into the mountains, the bravest among you can even try paragliding.

There is a huge amount to discover within the town itself though. There is a rich Muslim heritage in Loja, having been a Muslim town until it was taken over by Christians in the 14th century. The Islamic Caseron de los Alcaides Cristianos fortress and Alcazaba district provide a wonderful comparison to the lavish temples and elegant, flamboyant palaces, gardens and public buildings which still adorn the town. The huge, 25 spout Fuente de la Mora fountain is certainly worth finding from a Loja apartment or villa too.

Places to visit on holiday to Loja, Spain

Further into the countryside of Andalucia is the small town of Illora, which lies along the foot of the Sierra Parapanda. Overlooking the town is an imposing Moorish fortress, precariously positioned at the head of a dramatic gorge. Hugely popular with walkers, Illora is the start of a huge range of walking trails, which emanate from the town, reaching far into the hidden corners of the mountains.

Weather in Loja, Spain

During the heat of the day in July and August, temperatures can reach the 40˚C mark, with the hot weather lasting long into the evening. Eating outside on a summer evening is an absolute delight from self catering Loja properties, something which is possible for a huge portion of the year.

Travel to Loja, Spain

Reaching a Loja property from the UK is remarkably easy, with Loja located just 35 minutes from both Granada (GRX) and Malaga (AGP) airports, both of which are served by regular flights from the UK. Malaga is by far the larger of the two airports, and it is likely that you will find cheaper flights to Malaga, as well as more options on hire car facilities. Taking a hire car to visit a Loja property is advised, only because of the huge amount to see in the surrounding areas. Public transport to Loja can be arranged from either airport.

Amazing villa, views to die for and a delightful owner

5 of 5
We have stayed at many villas in Andalucia over the years, and this was by far the easiest one to get to from Malaga airport. The roads are really good right up to the turn off. The directions we were given were perfect, together with directions to Archidona to get supplies on the way. On arrival we were warmly greeted by Giulia, shown around and given all the advice and knowledge of the area we needed to get started on our fabulous holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean with top quality bedding and towels, with a lot of thought going into the decor. All the bedrooms are good sizes. One huge double/kingsize bedroom with loads of storage and an en-suite bathroom with shower over the bath, toilet and wash basin. Again plenty of space to put things in the sink unit. The next bedroom upstairs is twin/double with en-suite toilet and sink unit. Both these rooms have lovely balocnies with beautiful views. The downstairs bedroom again a double/twin has doors opening onto the stunning courtyard and pool area. There is a another bathroom with shower, toilet and sink unit downstairs for use with this room. Outside there are various patio areas like small rooms in amongst lovely planting with views over the beautiful lake and thousands of olive trees on the slopes of the surrounding hills. Iznajar itself is stunning with excellent bars and tapas, and we were lucky to be there for the Festival of the Virgin which was a sight to behold. Rute is close by and like Archidona has supermarket and shops and bars. Granada and Cordoba are around one hour fifteen minutes away. with Seville around two hours away and visiting some or all of these is a must. We would struggle to find a more perfect spot so if we visit this area again we wouldn't hesitate to re-book Casa Feliz.

Beautiful villa and pool in stunning location

5 of 5
Breathtaking views over the rolling Spanish countryside is best viewed from the pool, where you can watch the sun go down whilst enjoying the last, languid swim of the day. The villa is very spacious and comfortable with all the mod cons and stylish decor. Wonderful walks in the Torqual National Park and visits to the Pompidou Centre in Malaga and to the Alhambra make for fascinating cultural diversions. The local food and wine is delicious and varied and is complimented by the warm hospitality.
