El Cielo de Cáñar is translated as "the sky of Cáñar" and is aptly located just above the historic white village of Cáñar, the first white village you'll see if you drive into the Alpujarra valley from the coast.
The pretty white village of Cáñar is the first of the High Alpujarra villages encountered leaving the Origiva valley heading up toward Bubion and Trevelez. Cáñar village is fully equipped with 3 bars, a shop and a pharmacy and is situated just below the hotel, less than a kilometre away as the crow flies (or the mule walks) but the twisting nature of the road means it is about 20 minutes walk.
The Alhambra is in Granada City and is about 1 hours drive.
The nearest airports are Granada (1 hours drive), Malaga (2 hours drive) or Almeria (2hrs 15 mins drive).
