  From the street you step directly into the sitting-cum-dining room with its wood-burning stove creating a cosy atmosphere during the winter months. At the window end, by the street door, is the table around which everyone eats together. At the other end, comfy sofas and armchairs are arranged by the hearth. Upstairs are four simple but cosy rooms, each a different shape, and each named after a different local mountain range; all of them furnished with a loving touch. Two of them have sloping beamed roofs, the others have traditional arches and beams. The top one dubbed 'the Casita', is the favourite: by the bed are a shelf of books and a tea-maker. The staircase ends in a sunny terrace at rooftop level.
  Although Castell de Castells is not far from the Costa Blanca it gets few tourists and the principal attraction is rural peace. Many of their guests come to walk in the surrounding mountains, although potential visitors are warned that there is little for children to do in the area. If you don't mind sharing your table with whoever else happens to be staying, this is the very definition of a charming small hotel.
