About this location

The Andalucia region

Andalucia is famous for it's climate, history and it's culture. It is the Spainsh province of whitewashed villages, fantastic scenery, welcoming locals and some of the most distinctive food in the Mediterranean. Inland Andalucia is an ideal place to take a "chill out" holiday, but you are within striking distance of some amazing sight seeing.

La Loma is located within travelling distance of Granada, Cordoba, Malaga and Seville. All the cities are worth visiting and the Alhambra Palace in Granada, the Mezquita in Cordoba and Malaga are easy day trips from Iznajar. Seville is only a 2 hour drive.

Andalucía is an ideal region for camping, walking, riding and mountain bicycling, owing to the nearly 300 days of sunshine a year and it's mild climate. Activity holidays are best taken in the spring, autumn and winter as the summer can be very hot.

La Loma's nearest village is Iznajar. Iznajar is south of the ruggedly beautiful Sierras Subbéticas Natural Park and this has some of the province´s most attractive and unspoilt villages on its fringe. The park was designated a natural park in 1988. It is home to one of southern Spain's largest breeding colonies of griffon vultures, as well as around 70 other bird species, like short-toed eagles. It also has a rich variety of wildflowers. La Loma is within a 30 minute drive so you can explore the park during the day and be back to watch the swallows drink from our pool in the evening.


Iznajar is a unspoiled, traditional white walled, red roofed village of Iznajar, with its castle dating from the 8th century and church from the 16th century, has spectacular views over a 32 km long lake which hosts a variety of water-sports and fishing.


The nearest course to La Loma is the new course at Antequera which is now open. All 18 holes are challenging with plenty of water, narrow fairways, olive trees lining the first cut and subtle borrows on the greens. There are many interesting holes, a few spectacular ones and the views around the course are wonderful.

There is also a club at Granada, 50 mins drive, where non-members are welcome on weekdays. The famous golf courses of the Costa del Sol are approx 1 hour’s drive.

Both Antequera and Granada green fees are considerably lower than on the coast and the courses are better than most public courses on the Costa.


The Sierra Nevada Mountains are around an 1½ hour’s drive away and the Sol y Nieve resort hosted one of the 1996 world ski championships events. It is smaller than other Nieven resorts (though much friendlier than some of the other more famous European resorts) it has sufficient runs to satisfy all standards of skier and boarder.


Iznajar lake offers a sandy beach with swimming and boating available from the boat house, as well as fishing. The lake is a 10 mins drive away, and also offers a beach restaurant. The beaches of the Costa del Sol are an hour's drive away.


Iznajar with its churches and Moorish castle is 10 minutes drive. La Loma is ideally situated to explore Cordoba, Malaga and Granada provinces. Antequera is a 20 minute drive, Granada and the Alhambra are 50 minutes by car, Cordoba is a 60 minute drive, and Seville is just under 2 hours away. Priego de Cordoba, a stunning Moorish and baroque town is just an hour's drive.

Spectacular Torcal Park and Flamingo Lake just 20 and 30 minutes away. There are also Donkey and Wolf Sanctuaries nearby.

Further details

Iznajar has plenty of shops, mini-supermarkets and banks with cash withdrawal points. There are an abundance of rural bars and restaurants.

For walkers there is a wealth of local walks to suit all abilities, including impressive El Torcal and Subetica National Parks.

Horse riding is available 15 minutes away.

We have local guides for fishing trips and birdwatching days.

"Very nice hideaway - relaxation guaranteed"

Hosted by the lovely couple who make you feel just like at home, La Loma is definitely worth visiting. We spent two weeks in the bigger casita cooking, eating, reading, sunbathing and just chilling. The views and the silence made it an even more relaxed stay. Perfect location for those who want to take it easy for a while. Ideal base camp for those who want to explore Andalucia.
Kitchen equipment was good. The fridge could be slightly bigger in case you're planning not to leave the place for a few days. We (4 people) used the supermarket in Archidona, some 30 min drive away, where everything needed could be found.
Highly recommended.
