Situated at the western end of the Costa del Sol is the exclusive resort of Sotogrande which is one of the oldest and most well established developments on the coast, having been inaugurated in 1958.
The original concept behind this development was based on the sale of plots to private clients on which to build their own exclusive villas. This was followed by the introduction of beach apartments in the 1970’s and then the marina and Port Grimaud-style canal residences in the 1990’s. Sotogrande is one of the few developments on the coast that has managed to retain its integrity and identity under one corporate image, giving it a unique feeling of style, elegance and exclusivity.
Over the years Sotogrande has established itself as both a residential and a vacational resort area, ideal for permanent residents as well as holidaymakers who are looking for a safe and healthy haven in Southern Spain.
Often referred to as the Pebble Beach of Europe, Sotogrande boasts 2 championship golf courses, both designed by the legendary golf course architect, Robert Trent Jones Snr., and one of which Valderrama hosted the 1997 Ryder Cup.
The polo installations at Sotogrande are probably the best in Europe, and the polo fraternity descends on Sotogrande in August every year to participate in one of the most prestigious tournaments in the world polo calendar.
A wide range of sports and leisure activities are also amply catered for, including: tennis and padel tennis, sailing and boating, with a more leisurely time to be had at the many lovely beach clubs in the area. Read more about Sotogrande
