Description from owner

Escape to the beautiful Axarquia region of Malaga Province, where the old country ways of life continue. The house has stunning scenery all around and uninterrupted views across open valleys of olive and almond groves to dramatic distant rocky mountains to the north and east. There is an easy road access and parking.

The house is about 100 years old but has been restored sympathetically to retain its rustic charm. Terraces at front and back offer sun or shade, lovely gardens surround the house and there is splash pool in a secluded spot. It is an ideal location for a peaceful relaxing holiday or for the more adventurous it is as an excellent spot for walking, bike riding or even using the local stables.It can also be used as a base to explore the historic cities of Malaga, Cordoba, Sevilla and Granada.

The Andalucia region

The Axarquia region of Malaga Province is an old Moorish name meaning 'east of Malaga'. This beautiful, unspoilt region is largely undiscovered by tourism.

It is bordered to the north by the rocky Alfanarte Mountain range, and to the south by the sea at Torre del Mar - a short 25 min drive through the olive and almond groves.

This area is also rich in fruit growing, with mango, avocado, orange and lemon groves along the route to the sea. Many of the olive trees are over 1000 years old and date back to the Roman period.

The coast provides a choice of towns from Malaga in the east to Nerja in the west, the beaches are long and largely empty and the towns have all the nightlife and shopping you could want.


Riogordo is a typical white village set above the Gordo (fat) river. The name derives from the fact that the water flows nearly all year due to the limestone Alfanarte mountains immediately to the north of the village.

There is a museum and 2 churches. It is a sleepy place at siesta time (2-5pm) but provides 2 banks and a post office, 3 supermarkets and plenty of bars and small shops, restaurants.

Overlooking the house to the south is the stunning hilltop village of Comares. An old Moorish stronghold it has fabulous views out across the Axarquia in all directions, heritage walks and local history information. The steep narrow streets are exciting to explore.This village is one of the unknown gems in this region and is totally unspoilt with a great communal pool available for public use in July and August for a small fee.

Lake Vinuela - a short drive across the olive groves from the house has waterside restaurants and is very picturesque.

La Loma is in a brilliant location to explore numerous stunning and unique Spanish villages apart from Riogordo and Comares but also you could simply go for walks, admire at the views and sample the local wines.

The flexibility of this location allows your holiday to be as busy or as relaxing as you like.

“Excellent and comfortable home for a long stay”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2012

We felt at home immediately after arrival, the place gave us a familiar feeling. Especially the guidelines from Jim and Liz, the photographs on the wall, all their personal belongings were in the house so they trusted us to respect them. The area around the property was simply beautiful and also the view from the pool. Though we were with 4 adults and one kid, the pool was big enough for us to have a swim all at once. The terrace also had a nice view and it was close to the garden where we could pick lemons, walnuts, tomatos and other fruits. You could sit in front of the house but also at the back and near the poole. We felt very private there and also the beds were fine. Only the neighbour had a few dogs that started barking now and then and also the cats we found sometimes in the kitchen, the last one only twice though. Besides that I would certainly recommend this property to others. And also the kindness of David's warm welcome and great service, we will never forget!

Thanks so much for taking the time to send this great review. We're so glad you felt at home and had a good time. Liz + Jim Larn

“Amazing place, I would love to come back there again”

Reviewed 17 Oct 2011

We spent a lovely week in La Loma, the area is absolutely amazing,mountains and the coast nearby, The house is great, really cosy, it would suit everyone who looks for peace and quiet. We would reccomend it to everyone, we are looking to come back there as it's really worth it.

Thankyou so much for your kind comments, we're glad you had such a good time. Liz + Jim Larn

“A lovely cottage in the Spanish Hills”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2011

A delightful cottage with all the facilities one could wish for including a lovely garden and super plunge pool all of which contributed to a most enjoyable and relaxing holiday.However,it is essential to have a car which,of course enables exploration of the surrounding area including the coast and Granada (The Alhambra is most impressive)

Many thanks for taking the time to send your review, we're delighted to know you enjoyed our house and garden. Liz + Jim Larn
