Arenas De San Pedro is found 140 Km from Madrid. You can take the A5 highway, exit 123, and continue 40 km on the N-502 until you reach the town. Another way to go is to take the scenic route - M-501. This second option is shorter in distance but takes longer because they are backroads.
The property is located in an area called the Tietar Valley, on the south side of the Gredos Mountains. The town has a castle from 1395 - the Constable Dávalos Castle, which later belonged to Don Álvaro de Luna and his wife, Doña Juana de Pimentel, also known as "la triste condesa" (the Sad Countess). It's been an historical monument since 1931.
Arenas is also home to the castle of Prince Don Luis de Borbón, Carlos III's brother, which was constructed by Ventura Rodriguez in 1780, and the Sanctuary of San Pedro de Alcántara, where the town gets its name, and where he (San Pedro) is buried, constructed in 1775.
