The Andalucia region
Just of the A92 motorway about midway between Malaga and Granada lies the beautiful district of Loja In a narrow valley dominated by the barren limestone massif of the sierra Loja this small town - divided in two by the Genil river is full of history, and well worth a visit, it has several interesting churches one being the 16th century Inglesa de San Gabriel designed by Diego de Siloe
Loja is within easy reach of most Andalusian destinations, Antequera, Cordoba, Malaga, Granada, the lakes at Iznajar and of course Riofrio
Two minute walk from the villa will take you to Bar Rafael, where you can enjoy an excellent meal in the restaurant,(for a very reasonable price) or just a drink in the bar.
Riofrio is in the beautiful Loja district of Andalucia, and just 4 klms from the historical town of Loja. (the villa is situated between the two) The surrounding countryside is the perfect place for walking biking and of course fishing. The farm at Riofrio uses natural vegitation filters in the water purification system and is thought to be the first organic certified sturgeon farm in the world. There is all round fishing at Riofrio and you will need a fishing permit.
Even if you are not keen on fishing it is worth taking a walk across what remains of the ancient bridge from the times of the caliphs. or just a leisurely stroll along the river, and stop to eat at one of the dozen restaurants in this small but unique village.

"Totally relaxing, family villa surrounded by olive groves and beautiful surroundings"
As a family we have stayed at the Casa Mia for the past 6 years and have booked again for this year. The villa has everything on hand for a great family holiday. We all feel totally relaxed and the children have a wonderful time with their own pool, large grounds and play equipment in a safe environment. We have enjoyed lovely trips out to Loja and Rio Frio, or going further afield to Granada and Malaga - although we have also spent some great days staying at the Villa and going to Rafs bar for a drink or two. Rafs also serve very nice reasonably priced meals.
If you want a holiday to chill with your family, we recommend this villa highly.

"amazing location and views, very comfortable with all mod cons"
this villa is set in a beautiful location with stunning views. well equipped throughout,including plenty of towels and bedding very comfortable beds and furniture. this was not our first stay at this villa our family and friends have been returning sometimes twice a year for several years. the local bar and restaurant is excellent value and the locals are very friendly but don't expect anyone to speak much English, although they make every effort to understand and please you.The person who visits the villa regularly to keep the pool in good order is English and very helpful if you want any advice about the local area or accessing services, etc. Sit on the balcony in the evening and watch amazing sunsets. you definitely need a car and there are plenty of places to visit the villa has a book with lots of information about where to go including markets and festivals. there is a daily bus to the lovely town of Loja about 5 kilometres away.This has some good shopping, a weekly market and lots of historical interest, if you want to go anywhere by taxi do ask a price first then it will be very reasonable. the villa is suitable for quiet relaxing holidays and centrally placed for those who wish to travel or explore.

"very nice stay in a beautiful area and not far off from all the hussle and pussle"
What a great and easy house with all the comforts you have at home. its a quiet village but there is a lovely restaurant nearby, Rafael, and the food is very nice. the great thing is its location as well because it doesnt take you long to get somewhere, like granada, seville etc. Its a beautiful area. the swimming pool is great and we as a family used it every single day and its a beautiful pool. the plus is that we also had airconditioning in the house and you do need it in the middle of the summer!! anne, the owner of the house has been so kind and so helpful with any questions we have had before we went. This has been so great and we definitely want to do it again and again!!!
