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.

                                                              Our large family group (20 people aged from 23 to 71) has just returned from a truly special week at El Almendrillo. Everything in every way exceeded our expectations! Every box was ticked! The whole house is sympathetically and beautifully furnished, yet is very functional too. The bedrooms reflected the old place too, some being quite magnificent, some quirky, but all lovely. Interesting and comfortable areas everywhere inside. The position of this wonderful and characterful old property was amazing. Out on its own in stunning countryside. So peaceful! We thought we'd arrived in heaven after the drive up from Fuente del Conde! We spent many hours marvelling at the views at every time of day and pinching ourselves for being so lucky as to be there! Outside the house were so many little areas with comfy chairs and tables, where folk could escape or sit quietly if needed. We all found our perfect personal favourite spots! The courtyard with it's long table was where we gathered for meals chat and music in the evenings...perfect! And no risk of annoying anyone with our noise and entertainment! The BBQ area is conveniently situated in its own outbuilding, & was very user friendly. A real perk was the area where drinks could be stored, in a proper fridge. As a family getting together in a big group often, drinks storage for lots of folk can be a problem....but here it was perfect! And better STILL, Andres, the manager was able to pre-order not only all the drinks we could possibly want including a chilled barrel of beer on tap ....all ready for us on arrival! And at a very good price too. Another highlight (which we'd read about in other reviews) was the special catered Spanish evening meal. A local chef and his helpers came along and prepared served (and cleared away after!) a marvellous tapas meal for us all one evening. A treat! And that pool! A real wow! Enormous, and with awesome views! There were folk in there the whole time, playing competitive volleyball or just chilling...the weather was glorious, considering we were there towards the end of the season. The table tennis area, table football, and a pool table were all well used too! Local shopping (25 mins away) was excellent, and cheap too! And much easier without the drinks! We could have ventured further than we did, making it to Granada, and to Benalmadena where we took the cable car and visited the Birds of Prey education centre. Mostly we just chilled out!

                                                              Perfect for what we wanted

                                                              We stayed here for 1 week at the end of August. It was perfect for what we wanted. We spent a few days by the swimming pool, and also did day trips to the amazing cities of Cordoba, Granada and Seville. The apartment was very clean and so were the garden and all the terraces. The views are amazing, especially from the rooftop terrace. There is lot of space, which gives you plenty of privacy. Although you are in a small village, the shop and bar/restaurant 2 minutes away are also very convenient. We would love to come back!
