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.

We stayed in the one bedroomed apartment and it was very clean and well equipped. The bar in the village is handy and serves some nice tapas and evening meals. Iznajar is only about a 10 minute drive away and has a few restaurants. We visited Antequera and stayed overnight in Seville which is just over 2 hours away, Had a very enjoyable week - thank you Kevin and Kath

Fantastic pool, lots of areas to relax in sun or shade. Extremely helpful owner, great communications and very nice and helpful property manager. Welcome pack was much appreciated. Highly recommended property. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 week holiday. Thanks very much.

The farm was located in a lovely and remote area with incredible country quiet and amazing stars at night. There is a bucolic view of patchwork fields below. The property is as described in the listing - or better. The charming and rustic architecture was beautiful but the house didn’t lack any of the modern amenities, dishwasher and clothes washer, included. We visited during a spell of wicked hot weather, but the masonry construction and plentiful fans meant that we were all comfortable while sleeping. The two kitchens, ample bathrooms and so many nooks and crannies meant that we could all be together when we desired, but alone when we needed to have space .The pool and grounds were well maintained and the ping-pong table proved to be a source of great fun. The owner, Mike was so helpful with everything from very detailed directions (which from afar seemed overkill, but once on the road are necessarily detailed), advice on where to buy provisions, where to eat out (love Dracula’s) and even hooking us up with caterers for a special celebration dinner. I’ve been telling folks that this was the best vacation of my life. True story.
