Di and John made us feel welcome from the moment we booked and it did not ever stop up to the moment 5 days later that we had to drag ourselves back to a rainy Gatwick. Di cooked us a delicious dinner every night and provided lunch for when we just stayed on the beautiful roof terrace relaxing. They are... More

Had a lovely stay here.......a stunning drive through fabulous scenery. Dinner was excellent...really delicious..thanks Di. Good quality wines too. Our room was large with a dual aspect & wonderful view across Cartajima. Good quality linens, bath robes & toiletries. A very comfortable stay... and so wonderfully peaceful & quiet. Highly recommended.

As all the reviews are so good and it's at the moment the number one of all hotels in Andalusia, we went there with our expectations. We spent two (rainy) days at the hotel, we spent the most time at the hotel inside. Because there was no sun and just clouds, we weren't blinded by the beautiful sourroundings. I guess... More

First of all, thank you for taking the time to review your stay with us so thoroughly. It gives us an opportunity to clarify certain issues for other travellers. To begin with, it must be stated that you booked through Booking.com and not directly with us. We give them just one room to sell and it is a room that... More

I cannot remember a more relaxing and enjoyable holiday. The hotel is beautiful, comfortable and so welcoming. Di and John were the perfect hosts, always available, able to advise on the area, places to eat, to visit and to walk. They provided instructions for the walks which meant we didn't have to make any decisions about how to spend the... More

What a lovely review! Thank you Chrissilk for taking the time to write it. As you state we are just 40 minutes drive from the coast but a million miles in culture, beauty, and tranquility. Best wishes from Cartajima. More

Los Castanos is a wonderful retreat situated in gorgeous mountains near Ronda -- a much welcome dose of nature after the hectic pace of Seville. Di and John are the ultimate hosts. Nothing was too much trouble -- they provided us with excellent food and wine, insightful tips on everything from hiking routes to tapas bars and hotels in Ronda.... More

A thoroughly enjoyable weekend spent here recently. Cartajima may be less than than an hour away from the bustling Costa Del Sol but you are a world away from the bustle once you get to this unspolit village in the Serrania de Ronda. The Alto Genal valley is a great place for walking - hence the main reason for our... More

My friend and I had a very lovely, relaxing stay at Los Castanos. Di and John made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. From the slippers to the comfy bed to the gorgeous views, what was not to like. Dinner was delicious....it's a tall order to cater for a pregnant, lactose intolerant vegetarian...but Di rustled up...
