Each our six rooms at Los Castaños, are similar, but uniquely different. Whilst they are all furnished and equipped to the same meticulous standard, each offers a different outlook. The Sunrise Room for example has a glorious view of the mountains from the bed itself whilst the Mountain View Room has a panoramic view of the Serrania de Ronda from the balcony. The Curro Comacho room has a similar view but because of the arrangement of the room and decor, it provides a vastly different feel. The Village Room as the name suggests is a great lookout point over the village to watch the comings and goings in the town hall and across the square. Great for people watching!
One room favoured by many of our guests is the Moorish Courtyard which overlooks the flower-filled patio at the back of the building. It’s a cosy room that is flooded with the afternoon sun that also illuminates the Private Retreat; a special room with a private entrance which is a little separate from the other rooms, hence the name.  Unlike most Spanish hotel rooms, our quite unique boutique hotel features air conditioning and of course heating for the cooler months of winter when incidentally there is great walking in the valley! We provide tea and a cafetière in each room, also not usually found in hotels here, but our guests really appreciate that.


Free Parking Nearby

There is plenty of safe street parking very close to the hotel. We help you park when you arrive.

Mountain Views

It has been said that we have the best mountain views in Andalucia from the gorgeous rooftop terrace.

No TVs

We have just one television in the snug which is seldom used but is there for special occasions.

Adult Retreat

We welcome children over 12 or babies in cots but cannot accept children in between. We just do not have the appropriate facilities.

Private Ensuite

Each of our rooms is ensuite and one, the Private Retreat, has a tub if this is something that is important for you.

Local Knowledge

We are a fount of local knowledge and more than eager to share it with you so please just ask about your preferred activities.


We offer a laundry service for our long-haul guests so just ask if that is something you need.


Los Castaños is a very private place and the big antique front door is always closed. You will be given a key so you can come and go as you please.

The owner, Di Beach, has a fascinating life story and she and her co-host John go out of their way to make every guest feel welcome and well taken care of.

There are hiking paths leading in every direction from the village of Cartajima and hiking to one or more of the other nearby pueblos blancos is a great way to spend a day without touching the car.
