When we travel with our family, we prefer to stay at family-owned homes, condos and apartments. We have enjoyed a richer, more authentic experience in all of the countries and towns we have visited staying in these family-owned dwellings. Hands down, Lisa and Nigel were the warmest and most attentive hosts we have ever had the opportunity to know. Casa Pino Solo combines in-house amenities (fireplace, duvets, well-equipped bathrooms) with all you might want on the exterior (beautiful vistas, high end hot tub, heated pool, comfortable gathering places) Were it not for Lisa's informative emails to my first inquiry, I doubt we would have found this jewel in Andalusia. The guide books direct everyone to the major cities. Lisa and Nigel helped us to see charming Iznajar, the wonderful Nuñez de Prado Olive Oil Factory in Baena, picture perfect Zuheros and Ronda, and countless area attractions. We drove to Granada to sightsee and ski, visited Gibraltar, and enjoyed scuba diving the Costa del Sol. We saw and did a great deal while keeping it relaxed on our vacation. Kudos to Lisa and Nigel for creating an amazing resort in Iznajar!
