El Pastor is situated in an outstanding valley in the Parque Natural of the Sierra de Grazalema 7km from the village, in a secluded rural position at an altitude of 600 meters, with the nearest neighbour a few minutes walk away. It is built on the site of an old mill and bakery and its focus is the river which can be seen from most of the windows. The accommodation is simple and typical of farmhouses and mills in the area. The garden is planted with native plants including rosemary and lavender. There are various outside areas where one can relax and a short path takes you to the river (which powered the mill), where a waterfall has created a natural plunge pool and waterfall which is perfect for swimming in, on hot summer days. This mountainous area is perfect for walking, cycling and bird watching. Scops Owls, Golden Oriels, Griffon Vultures, Black Kites and Bee Eaters have all been spotted close to the mill.
