BRAND NEW NEWS -EXCITING!!!!

POOL INFO

There is a large seasonal heated chlorine Free pool fully fenced for kids safety,jacuzzi,games area,free WIFI and we can organise activities including a beautician for the day and kayaking/sailing on the beautiful Lake of Iznajar

The most exciting news is that for the year of 2015 we had a magna pool system installed!!!This is amazing-we are one of the first ever pools in Spain to have this system as it is brand new to this Country arriving over from Australia.The pool will run with crystals instead of Chlorine.

NO MORE CHLORINE - JUST PURE MINERALS!!!!!

The Magnesium Chloride that is found in the Magna Pool minerals come from the ocean.This form of magnesium has been found to assist your internal health, as well as helping to relax your mind and body.

It can help in detoxifying the body, reducing aches and pains, relieving stress and anxiety and providing the muscles with energy.

Also this form of magnesium is known to be gentle on sensitive skin and other problem skin conditions which will really help you

and ultimately leaving your skin feeling soft, radiant and smooth.

For all our guests at Casa Pino Solo....you will no longer have chlorine in the swimming pool but instead these amazing minerals.....you will swim in our pool on your holiday and feel rejuvenated.

This will be pure luxury for you like visiting the spa for the day but its your pool for the whole duration of your holiday!!!

Our beautiful villa is decorated to the highest of standard and is a fully licensed Casa Rural inspected from the Andalucian tourist board The Junta De Andalucia.Our license number is CR/CO/00320 that we proudly display for all our guests to see.

About Nigel and Lisa Derry

Myself Lisa and Nigel have been running Casa Pino Solo now for 10 years after making the move to Spain.Previous to this move i spent 14 years managing restaurants after training to be a chef and then moving directions into the management side of things.We both dreamt of our move for a long time and wanted to own a property where we could provide holidays for people and use my skills of hospitality and knowledge to ensure everyone had a great stay.Once we found our property the rest all fitted in to place and now 10 years down the line we have a wonderful villa complex packed with family facilities where everyone has a fantastic holiday.We welcome everyone to come and you will love our accommodation and of course our wonderful area and we would love to meet you all!

Nigel and Lisa Derry purchased this villa in 2005

Why Nigel and Lisa Derry chose La Subbetica

After searching all of the South of Spain on the coast and inland Andalucia for around 8 years we eventually found our perfect location,Iznajar.We chose to buy here due its fantastic location and proximity to all the wonderful cities of Andalucia.Our luxury property is only 10 minutes from the main motorway of Andalucia that gives you easy access to tour Granada,Malaga,Seville,Cordoba,Ronda,Gibraltar,Nerja,Priego De Cordoba plus many more places including white washed villages that are wonderful,the real Spain!

You can enjoy our wonderful views and quiet location and then get to all the hussle and bussle really easily.Everyone who stays at Casa Pino Solo loves the area andcoming back from a day touring to relax in the jacuzzi with a nice glass of wine and eating outdoors al fresco style!

What makes this villa unique

Our property is very unique to our area having the best facilities around including a large seasonal heated pool,jacuzzi and games area,perfect for a holiday any time of the year.

Wir verbrachten zwei Nächte im Casa Pina Solo und waren sehr angetan von der Ruhe, dem Erholfaktor, Pool, Jacuzzi und der Atmosphäre insgesamt. Die Besitzer, Lisa und Nigel, waren äusserst gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie stellten ein Babybett bereit, wir konnten unsere Wäsche waschen, sie erklärten uns alles mögliche und waren zuverlässig. Man fühlt sich bei ihnen richtig gut aufgehoben. Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen.

Couldn't have wished for a better property with its swimming pool and hot tub, great views and food.

  • 5 of 5

Shared the experience of this property with my own family along with my brother & sister and their families. The owners made our stay here very enjoyable and helped us out with places to eat and visit and even ordered food in for us, which was good as the locals did not speak much English and we did not speak any Spanish. The weather was gorgeous and the swimming pool and hot tub made the stay even sweeter. Only downside to this holiday was that it was too short.😟򗰠I'll be sure to let all my friends know about this place😀򐀽򓨎 Mandy from Oxfordshire.

Fanbloodytastic!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say, amazing views, amazing rooms and amazing people!!!! I would recommend renting a car as the Villa is inland but this just adds to the experience!!!! Lisa & Nige are always on hand day or night and are always helpful with places to visit and the quickest routes to take... Very clean villa and Nige came and emptied the bins and cleaned the pool daily. We hadn't pre booked our plane seats & Lisa and Nige were only too happy to check us in online & print our boarding passes for us they couldn't do enough to help us. The people at the bar literally 5 mins away (not only the owners but visitors) were lovely people & so welcoming. Just a car drive away there are so many places to visit including Malaga, Terimolinos and Marbella we really did have a ball & it was just as excitable lazing about the villa and pool. I cannot recommend this Villa & Lisa & Nige enough. This holiday was with friends and our 21 month old daughter & their Children but we're thinking of a big family holiday in the near future and this is the place we shall be!!!! Thank yo so much Lisa & Nige!!!!

The best

  • 5 of 5

This is what me and my girl call a perfect holiday.

We booked the upper appartment and were very happy. More than great service, (the owners will help you in any way they can!) perfect appartment and facilities!

It were 2 weeks of relaxing en enjoyment!

It has beautiful surroundings and trips to Sevillia, Granada, Cordoba and Malaga are good too!

We'll come back for sure!

And probably with a group for they also rent to groups of ten to twenty.

We just loved it!

Made to feel special

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at Casa Pino Solo, tired and hot after a long journey, not knowing what to expect, Our hosts were standing there waiting to welcome us and even helped us with our bags to our apartment.

The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. The pool was not chlorinated, and the water felt silky. Lisa and Nige explained this was their new system. It meant we could swim without worrying about watering eyes. Much needed in the very hot sun we enjoyed during our stay.

The hot tub was fabulous, and we made sure we made the most of that. Surprisingly a hot tub is especially relaxing in very hot weather.

The place itself is set back far enough from the beaten track to be very peaceful, yet there is a bar within walking distance, and a beach by Iznajar Lake 5 minutes drive away, and the water there is clear and with no tide, there were a few children paddling around too. It was lovely watching the Kayaks and Wind Surfers from a secluded cove a little further along.

We took time to visit a few places in the surrounding area, which included Seville and Grenada. They were both very amazing and for very different reasons. As an experience, we would recommend you book Football tickets for Seville if you can!

The apartments are ideal for those who like a clean, welcoming place with exceptional views and more facilities than you would normally get for something of a similar price. It's ideal for those who like to explore, and although you need a car, Lisa and Nige can easily organise a taxi or even a coach.

In fact Lisa and Nige would organise anything if you needed it! We know they have organised Flamenco dancing, Cookery Courses, Food delivered to the villa for your arrival (not just the groceries, but a cooked meal if you want it). Nothing is too much trouble for this couple.

Our stay was enjoyable, relaxing and we will be going back.

Iznajar
Car: recommended

Iznajar is extremely popular for tourists as within a 5 minutes drive radius you can be in all of the Andalucian Provinces,Cordoba,Malaga,Seville and Granada making it easy to tour all the wonderful cities but located in a most amazing area and the main A92 motorway is only 10 minutes away,known as 'The Crossroads To Andalucia'.

When you arrive home after a long day touring it is pure bliss to sink into our jacuzzi with a glass of wine and enjoy the seasonal heated pool.

Iznájar is a village clinging to the sides of a hill, the remains of a Moors castle at the top looks out over a huge shimmering lake, created as a reservoir some thirty years ago.The beach at Iznájar has white sand and is a perfect spot for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing and there is a lovely beach bar serving food and drinks!If you want to see more of the white washed villages and really get into tapas and life in Real Spain you can visit many including Ronda,Priego De Cordoba,Luque and Baena where the olive oil is made.

Other Activities: Bird watching, pony trekking, painting, beauty treatments, horse riding,quad biking,quad biking

Golf: Antequera Golf Course is only 25 minutes away and a great course and very reasonably priced.

Ski: Sierra Nevada Ski resort is one hour and 20 minutes away and very easy to drive to.There is also a company that will take you skiing if prefered.
