Our Rooms

Los Castaños is a small charming rural boutique hotel located in an unmapped pueblo blanco just 14 km from Ronda, the busy tourist town in Andalucia. We are close enough to enjoy the gastronomic, cultural and historical attractions of Ronda but far enough away that you can escape to the peace of the mountains and countryside in just fifteen minutes.

Our romantic oasis of peace combines simplicity with luxury. Not the boring corporate kind but something new emphasizing style, generosity, knowledge, care and love. A unique hotel in a totally unexpected location. John and Di love what they do and are so happy to share this undiscovered and beautiful part of Andalucia with like-minded discerning guests who appreciate the peace and the beauty.

Our guests come from all over the world to explore the ancient settlement of Ronda but escape to the peace of the mountains after visiting the busy monuments. They come to hike the pristine walking trails that connect the seven villages of the undiscovered Alto Genal Valley, part of the Serrania de Ronda, using our detailed and researched route notes.

Located in the centre of Andalucia, curious travellers use us as a base to experience the romantic cities of southern Spain: Sevilla, Granada, Jerez, Malaga, Cordoba, Cadiz. All of these are just a day trip away either by road or train for Malaga and Cordoba.

Birdwatchers and nature-lovers revel in the diversity of birds, Spring flowers, and Autumn colours. A recent guest counted 102 species of wild flowers on a hike one day during her visit, some of them new for her. A speciality of the area is the wild orchids.

Our guests also come to chill. To relax on our rooftop terrace with its hypnotic mountain vistas whilst still in touch with the outside world using our free wifi. They read books from our extensive library, enjoy the many board games that we provide, get addicted to Yatzee ? and enjoy the social atmosphere that more often than not prevails at Los Castaños.

Los Castaños has won many awards and the one we are most proud of was from the Gastronomic Academy in Malaga who gave us the Best Inland Hotel award. Our food wins much praise as you can read on Tripadvisor and is often the reason our guests come to this off the beaten track and very unique place. Di cooks willingly for people with dietary restrictions such as vegetarian or vegan. She delights in coming up with new exciting dishes for regular visitors who, without exception, ask for the recipe. It is hard to be a vegetarian in Spain which is a meateating country and all our guests comment on the wonderful vegetables we serve with every meal.

We encourage our guests to visit the local bars each of which is different and offers its own specialities. The municipal bar which is a blokey sort of place has simple tapas, the Frasquita is much more sophisticated and offers larger plates called raciones to share, and the bar restaurant by the pool has a complete menu.

Wine tasting, olive oil tasting, bull breeding, guided hiking, restaurant reservations, guitar concert seats, advice on where to go and what to do. We are up for any challenge! Try us!
