It is situated one kilometre up a track from the village of Yator in the Alpujarra countryside . This is a very tranquil location with the sound of water from the small river, with bamboo growing, the scent of wild herbs, the shepherd passing by with his herd of goats and sheep grazing as they go along and often has Bonellies eagles flying overhead.
