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...

Unfortunately we only stayed for one night, while walking in the area on our honeymoon. This was the ideal place to turn up to hot and dusty. Calmness oozed from the fabric of the building. Lovely friendly hosts and a comfortable room. After sampling the excellent gin selection and a great simple meal it was a shame we had to...

After driving up a winding road with beautiful views of the mountainous landscape, we arrived at Los Castanos to a gourmet-like meal made with local ingredients, 2 very warm hosts and a place of respite and beauty. Di and John are very responsive to requests about food, inquiries about local hiking and walks. All the spaces, both public and the...

We have just come back from two and a half weeks in Spain and we visited Los Castanos mid-trip after Barcelona, Madrid and Seville. It was a welcome respite after being in all these wonderful cities. The breathtaking views of the mountains, sunrises and sunsets and beautiful blue skies added to our enjoyment and relaxation. The rooms are comfortable and...

I had the chance that a friend brought me to Los Castaños. What a bless. The hotel has big rooms, stunning views from most of the rooms and even better from the roof terrace. It is extremely clean and the hosts Di and John are fabulous. Di is an excellent cook. Los Castaños is definitely a place to discover. The...

We were on a cycling holiday, touring the area, and were originally scheduled to spend one of the nights in the nearby village of Alpandeire, however this was changed at short notice and we were faced with an extra 12km of riding at the end of an already long, hot day - not to mention the extra climb out of...

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
