Hotel Los Castanos cartajima Ding chez Nous

Named Malaga's Best Inland Hotel by the Academia Gastronomica de Malaga

3 course dinner with amuse-bouche, coffee and chocolates is 30 euros per person. Please order in advance as it is pretty slow food. Generally served at 730pm for 8pm. Please advise dietary restrictions and food allergies, all of which can be catered for.

Lunch in the Alcornocales

I was sat, as they say in Gloucestershire, dangling my legs at the bar of the best tapas joint in Zahara de los Atunes next to John, who is from Gloucestershire, when I got a mobile call from a unique hideaway eating place in the middle of the Alcornocales – the cork forests that lie between the Costa de la Luz and the Serrania de Ronda.

Tasting Olive Oil aka Oleoturismo


At 856 metres, the altitude of Cartajima is a little high for the olive to grow well. There are a few but not in commercial quantities. However, in nearby El Burgo you can experience the olive in all its variations and stages of production and, most importantly, tasting!

The most wonderful restaurant

Please meet Javier, proud owner of the Yerbaguena restaurant on the outskirts of Campillos, an hour´s drive from Cartajima. It came to our attention by a circuitous route and we have been trying to get there for three years now but plans always fell through. It was worth waiting for.

Best ham slicer in Spain


He is called Leocadio Corbacho and he has an Aladdin´s cave of ham in Ronda. You simply must visit, even if you don´t eat meat. He has a wide variety of cheeses and pickles and everything in between. The shop is also a museum and a cafe - a spectacular place for a Spanish breakfast.

Five Gastro Tapa Joints in Ronda

Everybody loves a tapa or two but we tend to make a meal of them which is not what you are supposed to do. They are meant to tide you over the long gap between lunch and dinner which doesn't begin until at least ten in the evening.
