Activities
Golf
The nearest course to La Loma is the new course at Antequera. 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 hourís 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.

Skiing
The Sierra Nevada Mountains are around an 1Ĺ hourís 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.
