This is an excellent hotel in a delightful and picturesque area of Spain. Cartajima is a sparkling white village set in the mountainous Serrania de Ronda and the town of Ronda, a short distance away, is well worth a visit. Di and John gave us a very warm welcome and provided everything we needed. Their help re local walks and...

Los Castanos is wonderfully situated on a lovely hillside with splendid walking from the door. The house is brilliantly designed with lovely sitting and dining areas, a sweet little patio and a fine roof terrace with amazing views. Bedrooms are very comfortable and well equipped . Di's cooking is excellent and she provided us with delicious meals, lots of variety,...

Briefly - go here. The service was impeccable (they had sandwiches for us when we arrived after Midnight from Morocco), friendly, attentive, generous with their time. The hotel and it's location could not be more inviting and the village life is a piece of Spain that all travelers should enjoy. Di and John made us feel at home including with...

A welcoming and very comfortable place to stay as a base for exploring the hills of this part of Andalucia. Di and John made this an exceptional week - nothing too much trouble from providing maps to giving advice about places to visit to preparing sandwiches. The meal each evening was excellent - too good to tempt us to eat...

Neither of us had been to the Ronda area before but friends we know had raved about the friendly locals, the wild, beautiful countryside and the exquisite food. So when we realised that Los Castanos Hotel was sited perfectly in the middle of Cartajima, one of the most exquisite white mountain villages you could ever wish to see, we decided...

We have just returned from a weeks hiking and sightseeing trip. Staying in just one place was new to us as we tend to do linear walks. We couldn't have made a better choice. We could walk from the hotel and return to a warm welcome and superb food. The atmosphere was brilliant as we all sat round the coffee...

Very comfortable room with great view of the mountains. Nice little village. Did I mention the great hosts--both of whom really want to make sure you're having a wonderful stay at their hotel--Di makes the worlds greatest dinners--John will help you in any way he can. Finally, if you enjoy hiking from village to village and back again this is...

When we picked the hotel off the net we were looking for somewhere relaxing to walk and eat nice food. I can't imagine how we could have done much better. This is probably one of the nicest smart bandb's (or relaxed small hotel depending on how you look at it) we have ever stayed in anywhere. It is stylish 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
