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.

A beautiful homely family villa in Andalucia

4 of 5
Our family of six adults and four children (two 5-year olds and two 1-year olds) had wonderful time in this isolated rural villa situated among the olive groves. The accommodation was very comfortable and as described by the owner except that the third bathroom has no shower. There was plenty of space and lots of toys to amuse the children. The pool was beautifully clean and well-maintained. Things that could be improved: 1. The garden is getting overgrown and needs some attention e.g. the large prickly Agave specimens are beautiful but not very safe for children and there is now little space outside for them to run around. 2. The house was superficially clean but would benefit from a deep clean sometime soon. 3. The equipment around the pool was looking a bit tired and some of the garden furniture was broken. Unfortunately, the local farming community relies heavily on tethered dogs to protect their property. They tended to be quite vociferous at night time. In spite of these quibbles we had a wonderful time at the villa.

Fantastic holiday

5 of 5
We visited Finca in June 2017 and we had an amazing time. We were 14 adults and 6 kids. The house was amazing. All the rooms were completely different so we spent a bit of time after we arrived having a nose in all the rooms. I ended up in a beautiful room overlooking the courtyard and it had a beautiful small balcony outside.. stunning! The views from the house were breathtaking both by day and night . The pool was massive and we spent hours everyday in there with the kids. We had plenty to keep us occupied each day and visited Antonios Bar down to the road a few times. I could not recommend this house enough. It was an amazing and peaceful break away from it all! We hope to go back in the future!!
