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.

Pascals' happy welcoming voice on the intercom was the prelude to a wonderful 5 nights in this little paradise called Casita Elisa, too short a stay by far! The accommodation was perfect for us and we could not have wanted for a better host and hostess who made absolutely sure we had everything we needed whilst, at the same time, respecting our privacy and space. Christa and Pascal were there with help and advice, and it was lovely to hear their stories of Spain and their travels around the world. There are so many wonderful spaces to be enjoyed around Casita Elisa, for those lazy periods or the moments when you are feeling a little more energetic. Gently swaying in the hammock to the sound of the birds and the distant goat bells, cooling off in the swimming pool or seeking revenge on the table tennis table! The village is a short drive away and we enjoyed the market and the local activities, including helping to make a giant paella! Granada is an 80 minute drive and the Alhambra Palace is a must. We took Pascals' advice and booked a 90 minute guided tour, fascinating! If you want to dip your toes in the Med' the coast is just a 50 minute drive. This was the perfect place for us to celebrate our 10th wedding anniversary and we shall be returning as soon as possible.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The weather was great and the pool was in use everyday to cool off during an early summer heat-wave. Villanueva del Rosario is around 40 mins from the Malaga airport and street parking is easy and close by. The village is very quiet during the week, so if you want to eat out Sunday to Wednesday you'll have to go further afield for food. (Good burgers at Paco's pub) House is big enough so that you don't get under each others feet and the A/C in the rooms upstairs is essential to sleep in the summer, the bedroom downstairs does get hot. The kitchen is well equipped with two fridges and a freezer. The patio is large and has great views of the surrounding hills and the pool table makes an excellent distraction when not out touring the area. Places nearby to visit when you have had enough of the beaches on the coast- El Torcal, Cordoba, Mijas Pueblo, El Caminito Del Rey (A must visit as long as you book in advance). We had a lovely 10 days.
