Sotogrande has gained an exclusive reputation as the Beverly Hills of the Mediterranean. An architectural showcase, its small 2,500-hectare size encompasses all anyone could need to live comfortably and at their leisure.
It has every amenity desirable including the highest standard of golf courses, yacht and beach clubs, excellent restaurants, and beautiful private homes.
In 1964, Sotogrande was established as a gated community but has grown to be a much larger residential development of high-quality villas and premium homes. Its reputation as the Beverly Hills of the Mediterranean comes from this initial gated utopia plan. The aim to create a Spanish equivalent of Californian resorts came from industrialist entrepreneurs Joseph McMicking and Mercedes Zóbel.
Today it is the largest privately-owned property development in Andalucía, yet the high quality of the homes and space and privacy they provide ensure residents do not feel overlooked or crowded.
Residents of Sotogrande benefit from high-quality yet low-density premium living with space to enjoy and plenty of privacy. There is also easy access to urban areas as it is located just 30 minutes from Marbella. Sotogrande also offers a vast array of unique gastronomic and culinary experiences in its many restaurants and bars.
Finally, residents can enjoy exceptional quality sporting opportunities with five excellent golf courses, a number of artificial lakes, tennis at La Reserve Club and water sports on the coast.
In collaboration with our partner and one of the leading real estate agencies in the area, BM Sotogrande, we have put together a list of the most interesting and attractive Sotogrande villas available right now.
