The Christmas break at the Hotel Los Castanos, was a delightful experience for my wife and I. A well appointed, bijou hotel with an individual character located in the heart of the Spanish “white village” of Cartajima. Having enjoyed staying in various hotels over many years I have no hesitation in saying Los Castanos is unique and outstanding. Di and...

I have finally got round to providing the excellent review the Lost Costanos deserves (we went late August) what a beautiful location, so different from our previous frequent ‘sea, sand & pool’ experiences in Spain which we have enjoyed with kids and grandkids. we have reviewed this in the context of a middle aged couple looking for a budget priced...

Thank you for your review. So glad Los Castanos provided a good change from the beach. For our readers information, we are about 45 minutes from the nearest beach on the Costa del Sol. Best wishes.

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying here for one night in November. The hosts were wonderful and the room was very comfortable. The hosts had excellent knowledge of the town and the surrounding area. We only stayed while hiking though, but I think this hotel would be a good base for exploration fo the area.

We stayed there for 3 nights and used it as a base to spend a day in Ronda and a day at the coast. This is a wonderful respite to come back to after trudging around with the tourist masses.

Cartajima is a picture perfect white village in its own right, but it is a good base to explore the White Villages, and only fifteen or so minutes from Ronda. Los Castanos is a charming and comfortable small hotel or inn and the mountain views from the hotel's rooms and rooftop terrace are amazing. In addition, the hosts, Di and...

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
