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.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Good and effective communication with Louise resulted in a easy rendezvous with her in the Market Place and a quick passage to a car parking space less than 100m from the front door. Louise showed us into the property, provided us with essential guidance to operations within the property and left us with a fridge of supplies that served us well for the breakfast the next day, this was excellent as arrival on Sunday evening with no shops open meant we did not have to race out in the morning to do shopping. The wine & beer was very well received. The property itself is full of character and was well equipped for self catering. It had a wood burner and a plentiful supply of wood meant that we enjoyed warm & cozy evenings in with a glass or two of wine. The bedrooms are of a good size and there is adequate storage space for clothes. The bathroom is on the ground floor and is also of good size and has a fantastic shower with lashings of hot water. There is a comprehensive visitors guide book with all information to hand for walks, shops etc, etc. The patio area was used on a number of occasions but being late Oct/early Nov, we did not receive direct sun but it was nice to in the open without being overlooked. The area on the whole is very quiet and there was no noise disturbance that caused an issue. The main church clock started chiming at 7 a.m. and stopped at midnight, it was nice to hear. Overall , my wife & I and our friends were very pleased with the accommodation and the village. We enjoyed seeing the Alhambra Palace and marveled at the countryside that we toured around during our week. A car hire is a must. Thank you very much Louise for your help and the chance to stay in your little hide-away in Spain. The only issue we had was the inability to make the final payment to Louise via Owners Direct, apparently they had a problem and not for the first time. Again and luckily the communication with Louise that I had before we arrived meant that we able to pay her on arrival. Thank you Louise for your trust in us.

It was faultless from the booking process to arrival. We did arrive very late but to be greeted by this beautiful villa and home comforts made us feel relaxed to begin our weeks holiday. The villa is home from home and has everything and more we needed. We had planned to visit a few local areas, but because of how well relaxed and the awesome Spanish weather was we spent a week chilling by the pool and enjoying Spanish sunsets along with one or two tintos. We will definitely be back, thank you Nik.
