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.

We stayed at Hotel Los Castaños for the 3rd time and wouldn't hesitate to go back again. Di and John provide a warm and friendly welcome, our room was spotlessly clean as always and the breakfast was delicious. We also enjoyed an evening meal - 3 delicious courses created by Di and paired with a local Ronda wine on John's recommendation. It makes an excellent base for walking in the area and discovering Ronda. A great place for a country break!

Thank you for your review and for telling my potential guests about the wonderful walking there is in the Alto Genal Valley. It is a pure pristine landscape where you will probably not encounter another walker all day! Village to village walking with a beer available every hour or so.

I had my first stay at Hotel Los Castaños this past new year for a peaceful “Workation”, which proved to be a delightful experience. Di and John are fantastic hosts. Spoiled and pampered, I was provided with the perfect safe haven for a quick getaway. The room was spacious and the bed incredibly comfortable. Di and John placed great effort into the cleanliness of the hotel, regularly sanitising common areas, and always wearing masks. The ideal Covid escape holiday during times like these. Di’s cooking is one a kind and the wine selection was fantastic. Being able to work on their sunny rooftop patio, with its marvellous views, made me want to never leave! A little side note, the hotel had fibre optic Wi-Fi connection which was superb. Would very much recommend Los Castaños to anyone looking to escape the bustle of a city and immerse yourself in a delightful “Pueblo Blanco”.

We had our first stay at Los Castaños and it proved to be a wonderful experience. We were blessed on arrival with fine weather to enjoy drinks and tapas on the roof terrace. Di and John are congenial hosts and Di is a very talented cook. The bedroom was spacious and beautifully furnished, as is the rest of this special place, and the bed was extremely comfortable - in fact I had not had such good night’s sleep for a long time! We will definitely be back.

My third visit to this small piece of heaven. Fabulous, beautifully decorated and equipped rooms with a moorish twist, Di's wonderful creative food, views from the roof (glass in hand) to die for. And chestnut forests all around to walk through. Unique in every way.

We only had a one night stay here but felt a warm welcome and were looked after by our hosts Di and John. Cartajima is a tiny white village surrounded by great countryside close to Ronda. The hotel is well appointed with carparking very close by and provides a very calm oasis with some great views over the surrounding area both from our room 3 and the roof terrace. Although the weather was sunny it had a cold bite to the wind but our room had good heating so overnight it was cosy.
