castanos1webHotel Los Castaños is a small rural hotel of quality, more like a "riad" really. We are located in Cartajima, a small (pop: 100) traditional mountain village (one of the famed pueblos blancos) 17 km from Ronda in the heart of the Serranía de Ronda. Cartajima is close to the cultural delights of this bustling town yet far enough away to experience authentic Andalucia. Our seven ensuite king-size/twin rooms range from stylishly economic to purely luxurious. A perfect base for birdwatching or chilling while we pamper you.

molino1Molino del Santo is the perfect base in the Ronda area for birdwatchers who like their creature comforts. Environmentally friendly. Good and interesting local food, the ideal spot to please the less ornithologically-committed other half!!! Dippers frequent the stream alongside our terrace, golden orioles and bee-eaters abound and eagles and vultures scan from above, amongst many, many other species in this beautiful area. Open to non-residents every day for meals (best to reserve), snacks, bar and cafeteria service.
