We arrived after a very rewarding and tiring tour at a local organic winery, just in time for a cool glass of wine and afternoon siesta. Refreshed we headed out to the terrace before dinner. Di is an excellent cook with a Spanish/Moroccan inspired dinner in a beautiful location. Breakfast again was excellent after a good nights sleep we were... More

I just had to write a review to remind travellers of this amazing hotel in Cartijima, one of the beautiful pueblo blancas in the Andalucian mountains. We have just returned from a fantastic family holiday. The hotel is a beautiful building, furnished to a high standard with all the creature comforts you could possibly need - aircon, ensuite, mini-bar and... More

Not one for writing reviews, however having found this little gem of a hotel to stay at during our family holiday to Andalucia during July 16 I thought I ought to mention it. From the moment you arrive and Di and John welcome you through their key hole door you know you're in for a special treat. It really is... More

The village of Cartijima is among the most beautiful we've seen in the Genal Valley. It sits at the top of the mountain, but unlike some of the other villages, the road there is in fact quite manageable. Once you get there, you are rewarded for having going a bit further afield. The views from the hotel and village seem... More

Los Castanos is tucked away in a white village in the mountains south of Ronda. Views from our room, overlooking picturesque rooftops to mountains beyond, were one highlight of our stay. Di and John are welcoming and entertaining hosts. Di's cooking is quite superb, we relished two four course meals, prepared with skill and imagination, using delicious, fresh, local ingredients....

I planned a brief escape from the UK following the death of my wife. Plans were disrupted when all my luggage was stolen on the way to the hotel having stopped for lunch. Do not try to report crime on a Sunday afternoon in Spain. I made my way to the hotel feeling somewhat frazzled. Check-in did not take long... More

We stayed three nights at Los Castanos during Easter, and the only thing we regretted was that we did not have more time. The hotel is a true gem, located in a peaceful village a 20 minutes drive from Ronda. The small hotel is beautifully decorated with a personal touch and the hosts, Di and John, are so accommodating in... More

We spent three days here exploring the Ronda area, which was a wonderful experience. Returning to Los Castanos at the end of the day rounded it off perfectly. The hotel is situated in a small village with beautiful views from the upstairs rooms and the roof terrace. It offers great comfort including possibly the best bed we have ever slept... More

We did not stay long enough at Los Castaños. But we enjoyed every aspect of it: the delightfully tasteful hotel, our attentive and fun hosts and our bright and very comfortable room. We fortunately opted to stay for our evening meal which was superb. Cartajima, the picturesque 'white' village surrounded by rugged hills, is a paradise for walkers and bird... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Just six kilometres off the tourist trail to Ronda is a valley with stunning mountain scenery and eagles soaring overhead. You are heading for Cartajima, one of the most traditional of the famous Andalucian pueblos blancos, white mountain villages. Following our driving directions, you arrive outside the great chestnut doors of Los Castanos behind which there is quality accommodation, personal, informal atmosphere, local wines and great home-cooked food. Relax in your spacious bedroom with its enormous bed, soft sheets and fantastic mountain views. Stretch out on a lounger on the rooftop terrace, savor your wine and melt into the mountains. This must be the most perfect getaway, a totally indulgent mountain village hotel in a completely unexpected location. ... more   less
