The backdrop for our body mind and soul retreat is the stunning Alto Genal, renowned for it`s chestnut forests and scattered white villages. Cartajima, the highest of these villages is our stage. A quiet undiscovered village, Cartajima is only 45 minutes from the Costa del Sol, but a world away in every sense.
At the heart of the village and providing the very heart and soul of our retreat stands Hotel Los Castaños.
This boutique hotel offers luxury, comfort and a feeling of peace and harmony hard to find anywhere else. Your hosts Di and John have made a fine art of balancing luxury with comfort and homeliness.
Winners of the best inland hotel award 2016, the trip advisor reviews and press are always excellent.
Just check out some of their reviews here.
Your haven during your retreat will be one of the 6 fabulous, spacious rooms at Hotel Los Castaños.
Each is slightly different but all with fabulous views, air-con/heating, ensuite bathrooms, large super comfy beds and seating areas.
Should you choose to have one of these rooms to yourself on your retreat it will provide you with the perfect balance between luxury and comfort, homeliness and extravagance.
The hotel itself has many communal areas for you to either relax and reflect or socialise and chat. From the moorish courtyard and rooftop terrace to the cosy snug and the drawing room with it's comforting fireplace, you are sure to find the perfect spot whatever your mood.

"A healthy self-love means we have no compulsion to justify to ourselves or others why we take vacations, why we sleep late, why we buy new shoes, why we spoil ourselves from time to time. We feel comfortable doing things which add quality and beauty to life.”– Andrew Matthews
