Sotogrande

Sotogrande is perhaps the most beautiful coastal location along the Costa del Sol. This secured luxurious area is the home of royalty, celebrities and wealthy businessmen and once visited its beauty and diversity explains why. The multicoloured developments that surround the great marina are home to shops, services, restaurants and cafes and provide the perfect location to people watch or simply relax and enjoy this magical destination.

Particular areas of natural beauty include miles of undeveloped beaches enclosed by sand dunes and green fields and vast expanses of marshlands that border Guardiaro River and can be enjoyed by all as they stroll along its wooden walkways. The central attraction of Sotogrande is of course the marina. Tapas bars, café bars and restaurants are the focal points of the marina. When enjoying outdoor dining or a late night drink in one of the bars your eyes will be drawn across the marina filled with multi million dollar yachts, over the Gibraltar Straights where the Mediterranean meets the Atlantic to the beautiful backdrop of Morocco and the Atlas mountain range.

Visiting Sotogrande is not simply about a desirable location of stunning beauty. Sotogrande is home to several world famous sporting facilities. Numerous Championship golf courses hold major PGA events such as the Ryder Cup and European tour events. Prestigious courses include La Reserve, Almenara, Sotogrande and the world famous Valderama. A tradition in Sotogrande is to attend one of the several Polo events at Santa Maria Polo club or experience a yachting regatta. These events are sure to be a fantastic day out and are well attended by local and international dignitaries.

Sotograndes diversity and exclusivity deems this to be a mini paradise. Mansions, villas and apartments with their private moorings set a colourful and luxurious backdrop and exude an enviable way of life.
