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.

Beautiful tranquil stay

5 of 5
What a beautiful place! We stayed here with a group of friends and had an amazing time. This felt like so much more than a holiday home, it's a perfect place to get away from it all whilst still having all home comforts, a pool and stunning views, I could spend hours just sitting on the terrace, in fact I did!! A short drive from a village with a traditional rustic andalusian feel, and some good tapas so you're not completely in the sticks. We also had a great day trip to Granada from here and visited the local dolmens. We would definitely recommend. Property was clean and the owners helpful in all communications.

Great Place For Families. Lovely Hosts

5 of 5
We booked both properties (Casa Limon cottage and La Casita apartment). We stayed in the cottage with our two children and my parents stayed in the apartment. Casa Limon is a delightful 2 bedroom cottage with a private covered terrace to the side of the property at first floor level, and another terrace to the front of the property on the ground floor. The whole place is immaculate and very well maintained. The cottage itself is very well equipped and the beds are so comfortable with fresh linens and good quality towels and toiletries. The attention to detail was superb and our hosts clearly invest a lot of time and thought into making sure that their guests have a relaxing, stress-free holiday. On arrival Tony and Sue had stocked the cottage with fresh bread, pastries, fruit, wine, tea, good quality ground coffee, and lots more. Sue is a great cook and she prepared a traditional Spanish Paella for us on one evening. Absolutely delicious! On other evenings we dined in Iznajar - just a short drive - where there are several really good restaurants and not at all expensive. There is so much to do and see in this part of Spain and we really do want to return to Casa Limon soon to continue our exploring and to enjoy more of Sue's Paella!
