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

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 wife and I had the pleasure of staying here for six nights in February. Di and John are lovley people and make you feel so welcome. The room was very comfortable and the food was delectable. They have a great selection of wine and I recommend the local Ronda wines. John produced a new walk every morning with maps... 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...

Many thanks for your kind review! This is a peaceful place which, as you point out, is not good for ardent party animals but perfect for people seeking a quiet break from reality. More

We couldn't have received a warmer welcome from hosts Di and John. Having stayed here several times previously we were looking forward to a real treat. We were delighted with our greeting, being welcomed as if we were old friends coming to stay in their house. A fiesta was in full swing in the village - a first for us... More

Beautiful cosy hotel in an untouched white village. Our room was spacious and comfortable. Delicious evening meal, fresh and healthy. Wonderful views from balcony and roof terrace. The hosts, Di and John were extremely friendly and welcoming.

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
