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.

Guilia was exceptional - by far the best host we have every experienced at any of the many villas we have stayed in. Her attention to detail to make this a 'home from home' villa was great - she had literally thought of everything. She gave us really useful info on what to do and where to go and even brought us a bottle of bubbly for our wedding anniversary. A truly lovely house with amazing views - 9 fabulous days spent with beautiful weather...we would love to go back!

We can't recommend this place highly enough. Fantastic accommodation, a real taste of Andalusia amongst the beautiful mountains with views to die for. Jacque and Garret are superb hosts and any recommendations for bars or restaurants will be good. With comfortable accommodation, lots of different areas to sit out and enjoy the views or the pools, El Rancho makes a great place for a family holiday. We can't wait to go back again!

We visited with our 3 children in August 2016 and had the most relaxing holiday. The owner arranged local car hire and he was waiting at Airport , sat Nav was in the car which made it easy to find Villa. The villa was spacious and had everything we needed. The highlight for us was the pool and spectacular view from the terrace. We ate outside each night and spent hours in the pool. A car is a must so that you can get out and about to see the beautiful Iznajar! The kids thoroughly enjoyed the days we spent there. There are sunbeds and pedlows for hire and a small kiosk to buy drinks and ice creams. We would definitely visit again.
