Our family were looking for a villa to celebrate our parent's Golden Wedding anniversary and we (thankfully!) found Casa Pino Solo after some internet research. This is the first time I have completed a review like this - but I need to tell as many people as possible how fantastic the villa, its facilities and location, but most of all how amazing Lisa & Nigel were, to make the holiday unforgettable!
Firstly; the villa. The rooms are very comfortable and extremely clean, with attention to detail such as all the kitchen equipment needed for both formal and informal dining. The bathrooms were lovely and the bedrooms spacious and comfortable. The pool was amazing, and we spent many fun hours lying on the sun terraces, cooling down in the pool or relaxing in the hot tub. Thankfully, the pool and table tennis tables kept the younger at heart from getting bored, and the dart board proved to be a success too! We were able to take less luggage as the washing facilities allowed us to keep our favourite outfits clean! we could eat together or apart - and with 13 of us with a wide age range this was very useful at times!
We found the location a big plus - close to the lake for trips kayaking and sunbathing, and near to the very lovely village of Iznajar for shopping and amenities. Many local bars and restaurants which we were helped with the booking of (for both nights out and delivery to the villa) and the local supermarket for stocking up on the gorgeous food and drink of the region. We also found the location excellent for day trips out - which included Granada (excellent market!) Seville (gorgeous scenery/buidlings and of course more shops!) Torremolinos for the water park and one of the highlights of the trip - Alhambra Palace. All these were in easy driving distance, and of course expert advice and guidance from Nigel and Lisa helped us to plan accordingly!
Finally - the villa owners. We have stayed in villas across Europe and the US and have never found the owners to be such helpful people! The biggest difference to the success of this holiday was the two lovely people who own it, and who really make it their business to ensure that everything goes according to plan and nothing is too much trouble to them. Their advice, guidance, support and local knowledge really helped us all - and they deserve so much credit for our holiday being so wonderful. Would love to think we could go back again - as I'm sure there's loads we haven't seen in the 2 weeks we were lucky enough to be there.
We would not hesitate for a second to recommend this villa to any age group - can I please give it 10 stars instead of just 5??????!!!! Thanks Lisa & Nigel for everything you did for us - 1000 stars to you two!!!!
