About Nigel and Lisa Derry

Myself Lisa and Nigel have been running Casa Pino Solo now for 8 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 8 years down the line we have a wonderful complex 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 apartment in 2005

Why Nigel and Lisa Derry chose Iznajar

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 apartment 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.

Our hot tub is brand new and top of the range with jets,led lighting and a waterfall giving you the ultimate relaxation after a days touring.

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.

We felt special !

  • 5 of 5

Everything is thought to make you feel at ease right away at casa pino solo. Lisa and Nigel are anticipating your needs without intruding in your holidays. Services we could enjoy are really high quality, everything at your disposal ... for no extra charge, and that does make a difference with many places where you have a minimum at booking, and have to pay extra charges for any special service offered! The surroundings are peaceful, inviting to relaxation and "carpe diem" enjoyment. You never stay too long in such a place, and you only dream of one thing : go back!!

Casa Pino Solo in Iznajar

  • 5 of 5

Excellent hosts, Nigel and Lisa, make this place. Nothing is too much trouble and they are always just an email or phone call away. The rooftop apartment was outfitted with everything you might need for a comfortable holiday whether you choose to eat "at home" or to dine in one of the many recommended restaurants found in your information book in the apartment. The scenery is breathtaking making al fresco dining on your private terrace a real pleasure. The pool, hot tub,billiard table, English satellite TV and free internet are all just added bonuses. The village of Iznajar is charming but beware of narrow and winding streets if driving. Better to park and walk into town. Be sure to visit the cemetery. It's interesting. Being well located in central Andalucia, there are many places to visit around the area. We highly recommend Casa Pino Solo.

Iznájar and More!

  • 5 of 5

There’s a casa in Spain with one pine,

Among almonds and olives and wine,

If you have the idea,

To see Andalucía,

Call Lisa and Nige for a great time!

We used Case Pino Solo as a base location for day trips to the Alpujarra, Morocco and many points in-between. It was great to have a cozy place with all necessary amenities to call home at the end of a long day or just to relax and enjoy to local pace.

Lisa and Nige were very attentive to our every need but at the same time gave us the privacy that we wanted. While we traveled as a couple for this visit, I hope that we will one day return to share the charms of Iznájar with family and friends.

Fabulous Holiday at Casa Pino Solo

  • 5 of 5

We spent two fantastic weeks at Casa Pino Solo in September 2012. The accommodation was excellent, we stayed in one of the ground floor poolside apartments, and we had everything needed to make our stay a comfortable and relaxing one. The standard of decoration, cleanliness, furniture and linen were excellent and we were provided with bath towels, pool towels and bath robes, which were definitely a well appreciated bonus.

The pool was lovely and the jacuzzi was an added relaxing treat, both were well maintained by Nige. The pool table and table tennis provided us with recreational fun in the evenings.

The owners, Lisa and Nige are truly wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble and they were so welcoming and helpful and a mine of information about the area which they so clearly love. It was a pleasure to have met them and they will do as much as they can to make sure that your stay is a memorable one, we were sorry to say goodbye at the end of our stay.

The location is perfect if you wish to visit some of the truly stunning sights of Andalucia. We wanted somewhere so that we could visit Granada, Cordoba, Seville and Ronda, they are all within travelling distance for a day trip and we saw many beautiful sights that we will never forget. Priego de Cordoba is another little gem that is worth a visit. It is also perfect if you just want a relaxing time around the pool.

All the restaurants and tapas bars that were recommended by Lisa and Nige were well worth a visit, the food was lovely in all of them. If you do not want to drive Lisa and Nige will organise a taxi for you, if you wish, which means that you can all relax.

We would definitely recommend this accommodation to others and hope to return again sometime to visit some of the places that we missed. We would also love to see Lisa and Nige again.

Wonderful Holiday at Casa Pino Solo

  • 5 of 5

My lovely partner Steve and I were lucky enough to be invited to attend the wedding of a dear friend of ours in the area of Andalucia, we didn't actually get involved in the booking of the accommodation, we just put our money forward but when we saw the pictures of Casa Pino Solo we just knew we were going to have a great time.

Before we had arrived at the Villa, the lovely owner Lisa was more than helpful and both she and her husband Nigel came to meet us on the evening we flew in, despite us being an hour later than we should have been. When we got there we were greeted with wonderful smiles and welcomes and a wonderful welcome pack of more than the usual essentials to keep us going!

Lisa then promptly booked us a table at the nearest local restaurant 'Los Pajaritos' in Fuente Del Conde and assured us that Antonio would look after us, which he did. All we had to do was mention Lisa and Nigel, it worked!!

We had the most amazing week after our arrival, the accommodation is spotless and luxurious, the pool is wonderfully inviting and immaculately maintained by the lovely Nige who comes and makes sure it is perfect and ready for you to use every morning and both Lisa and Nige couldn't have done more for us if we had asked!

They were both absolutely wonderful and so helpful and caring I would thoroughly recommend a visit to this beautiful house in a beautiful part of Andalucia.

We'll definitely be going back to see them both!

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.
