It's hard to believe, but all the wonderful things you read about Di and John's place really are true. We chose to stay in Cartajima because we wanted to stay away from the busier towns and get a real feel for the region. Di and John helped us do just that! Our room was warm, spacious and comfortable. And, whatever... More

We visited our son/daughter in law in Spain and the four of us drove from Malaga to this small boutique hotel for an overnight stay in December 2014. Locating the hotel and then parking wasn't particularly easy - street parking - but once in the hotel everything else was fine. The hosts Di and John were extremely friendly and welcoming,... More

We were very pleased to host your celebration and that you all enjoyed your brief stay with us. Driving in these tiny hill towns can be challenging which is why we always send our guests explicity instructions on how to reach our front door. We also offer to scope out a parking place if guests telephone us as they are... More

The reviews looked almost too good to be true but our stay here matched up fully with our hopes for a peaceful 4 nights in the countryside. Di and John were great hosts. Our room was very comfortable and well-equipped with a great view over the village and the hills far into the distance. The food at breakfast and in... More

This was our fourth visit to this paradise in the hills, where the atmosphere of the hotel and its location are the ideal place to re-charge the batteries, away from the "rat race" of everyday life. Drawn by the allure of the three day all inclusive "house party" for the Christmas period, we extended our stay to take every advantage... More

Los Castanos is definitely the superb place to stay if you want to get away from the Ronda crowd. John and Di are gracious owner who want to make sure we enjoy our stay there.

We never expected that we would find a paradise in the middle of Spain! We had one week of the most unforgettable stay at Los Castanos. We were welcomed by Di and John who were gracious, kind hosts, full of knowledge of history of the country. The interior of the hotel was decorated with Di's collections of artifacts, our bedroom...

I've now stayed at Los Castanos three times and can't say enough good things about it! ...Where to start? Situated in Cartejima, one of the tiny white historic villages of Southern Spain, Los Castanos is a refuge from the Costa del Sol's jet setting madness. Di and John ( our gracious hosts) are experts on the history of the region... More
