The ultimate location for modern luxury mansions.
Sotogrande is a discreet, enigmatic and leafy enclave for people who demand exclusivity, privacy and high-quality facilities well away from the throngs of busier resorts. It is the largest privately owned residential development in Andalusia.
Renowned for its luxurious villas, this highly sought-after urbanisation has some of the most expensive homes in Europe. It attracted owners and visitors from all over the world, including royalty, world leaders, politicians and international artists. Its success is down to the modern, boundary-pushing architecture within luxury estates, high specification facilities and sense of privacy.
Located in the city of San Roque at the foothills of the Sierra Almenara Mountains and surrounded by cork forests, Sotogrande is just a stone’s throw away from Gibraltar and occupies 20 square kilometers of prime coastal land. There are several artificial lakes, one of which is a man-made beach with a private beach club. Other beaches include Sotogrande Port Beach, Torreguadiaro Beach, Alcaidesa Beaches and Cala Sardinia Beach.
Founded in the early 1960s by Joseph McMicking and Mercedes Zobel who wanted to create a resort similar to Palm Springs. They began by buying up coastal farms in order to develop the luxury modern mansions positioned securely in a gated community.
The resort includes five golf courses, including the world-famous Valderrama Golf Club, designed by Jaime Ortiz-Patiño and host to the 1997 Ryder Cup and the European Tour Volvo Masters. The busy and beautiful marina is home to a sailing club, shops and restaurants. There are six polo fields, two tennis clubs, paddle courts, a riding stables, yoga, kayaking, windsurfing in addition to jet skiing lessons, hoverboards, electric bikes, paddle boards, longboards, Segways and scooters are available for rent and sale. Nearby excursions include the Alcornocales Natural Park, the rock of Gibraltar and Marbella is only a 30-minute drive.
