Sotogrande: Let the sky be your limit!
Sotogrande is a private resort and part of the municipality of San Roque in the province of Cadiz. The area is very exclusive and offer a lower building density compared to the rest of the coast. The resort is divided in a higher part called Sotogrande Alto and a lower, coastal part called Sotogrande Costa and adjacent to it a beautiful yachting port and marina, with developments on islands within channels. There are 5 excellent golf courses, a polo club and many different sports facilities and beaches. The area is an oasis of peaceful tranquility and has an elegant ambience.
In 1964, Mc Micking initiated the construction of Sotogrande’s inaugural golf course, the Real Club de Golf de Sotogrande. The following year, his nephew Enrique Zobel inaugurated Sotogrande’s initial polo field, which was located near Guadalquitón Beach.
Initially, Sotogrande attracted affluent foreign individuals who sought a serene Mediterranean environment to indulge in golf, Polo, and nature. However, in 1969, the Spanish government implemented a border closure with Gibraltar, limiting the number of foreign visitors. Surprisingly, this circumstance facilitated the arrival of the Spanish elite, contributing to the cosmopolitan essence that now defines Sotogrande.
By 2006, Sotogrande had gained popularity among Spanish and international residents, boasting some of Europe’s priciest residences. Additional clubs and golf courses emerged, such as the Valderrama Golf Club and the San Roque course. Furthermore, the port, established in 1988, continued its growth and transformation into the impressive showcase it represents today.
The community flourishes as an exclusive sanctuary for cosmopolitan, affluent, and globally connected families.

It always creates mixed feelings in me once we get into September in “my” Sotogrande.
No, please understand me well: I do not want to say that I do not like to be here in September, or in the winter. At the contrary, I love the tranquility, the space, our green, and the streets with fewer cars and the beaches with only a few sunbathers (25 September: great weather, blue sky and 25 degrees, still at 7pm!!!).
This Sotogrande is the real thing, the place in which I feel already for more than twenty years perfectly “at home”.
The Sotogrande in September is the place where I in Holland dream about during so many years. A place with sun, a nice climate, a place with space and green, and with next door an unbelievable pretty country side, and with nowadays also roads that allow me in minutes to dive into a more noisy and busy day and night live.
Sotogrande combines for me the best of all betters, the most desirable to live and work. And I know that I am not the only one with this emotion and opinion. Every day more people discover and confirm these qualities. For me it has always been a pleasure, and it still is, to help discover these qualities and “secrets” of Sotogrande and our direct surroundings.
So, why than these mixed feelings, you might think? Well, I believe they are comparable with the feelings after a great party, or a family reunion, or the joy of being together with a big group of friends. Of course I do miss “my” people after the summer. But luckily I know that most of them will come back again, because I am sure that they will miss Sotogrande: and a lot!
Do you like to discover and live the Sotogrande quality of life?
Sotogrande: quality of life without words to add.
Although one can say a lot of things about Spain that are –still- not in order or could be done better, there is one point in this country that always will be positive and attractive: the weather, especially in the south of Spain where I am based now for almost twenty five years.
Regularly I write and talk about this “matter of weather”, as one easily seems to forget here how important it is for the Spanish national product and how the –good- weather can be of influence in the life of for example northern europeans.
I myself was such a person. Born and brought up in Spain getting older I more and more noticed how the Spanish weather was of influence on my mood and emotions. As you probably know and although other north european countries such as Sweden or England are beautiful country, but its weather is not particularly attractive.
But I don’t want to write a weather forecast here, these comments are meant to connect the nice weather in our area to some unique investment opportunities.
Once you agree that good weather is the number one reason for a holiday or a new residence destination, we can concentrate on the other qualities of this area. Although founded in the sixties it took almost till the mid nineties before Sotogrande really got known around the world. Before it was like a pearl, secretly hidden by and kept for a relative small group of wealthy financial and important political people. The Ryder Cup of 1997 at Valderrama put us for once and ever publicly on the map as one of the top residential and holiday resorts in the world.
Sotogrande expands its horizons… towards what destination?
Sotogrande is experiencing a subtle metamorphosis (or, more accurately, embarking on a journey of expansion).
Renowned for its opulent residences and esteemed golf clubs like Real Club Sotogrande, this European enclave is one of the most lavish and exclusive residential regions. Its exquisite villas, graced solely by the affluent, are particularly renowned.
However, Sotogrande, positioned near the border of the Cádiz and Malaga provinces, possesses numerous stunning natural spaces ripe for new ventures. As the demand grows, many developers recognise the opportunity to introduce affordable properties into the area.
Emerging projects in Sotogrande, like La Finca, Pier, and Senda Chica, present apartment options at prices on par with other regions in Costa del Sol.
These developments appeal to British buyers and investors, drawn by the proximity to Gibraltar. However, they are not limited to this demographic alone. They are a must-visit for anyone seeking serene green spaces and unspoiled natural environments.
What about turning the sky into your investment?
Saying so, and taking into consideration our direct surroundings, like having Marbella and Gibraltar next door, plus the port of Algeciras and the beauty of our hinterland, makes it more than worth to start thinking -again- about the possible investment value of this area.
I always have had a strong believe in the qualtity and future of this area. And I still have this believe, also nowadays. That is why I keep on trying to create interest for investments in this area. We all know that, when we talk about investments, we have one main factor to take into consideration: time. The factor time or better said: timing is probably the most important key to assure a return on an investment.
Sotogrande: Only minutes away from Marbella waiting for investors with vision.
The significance of engaging professionals when searching for a residence in Marbella-Sotogrande
Sotogrande boasts an extensive range of real estate options to suit diverse preferences. It presents an array of townhouses, penthouses, apartments, contemporary new constructions, authentic Andalusian villas, and awe-inspiring mansions that are currently being developed. Moreover, at least for now, these offerings are available at comparatively more reasonable prices than those found in the Marbella-Marbella resort. However, to ensure a wise decision, it is crucial to rely on the guidance of knowledgeable professionals who thoroughly understand the area.
In this regard, one notable real estate agency that deserves recognition is LuxuryForSale.Properties Real Estate.

Experiencing a lavish lifestyle in Sotogrande-Marbella extends beyond the mere acquisition of a luxurious residence.
Today, the conventional definition of luxury, which revolves around the size or value of a property, falls insufficiently. Leading a luxurious life encompasses additional dimensions, such as enjoying privacy and the assurance that one’s home and family are secure, relishing the serenity of being surrounded by nature, engaging in sports at upscale clubs, and sharing facilities with esteemed professionals. It also entails engaging with individuals from around the globe while retaining a sense of familiarity and genuine community.
The essence of luxurious living lies not only in the quality of living conditions but also in the ability to relish the expansive spaces provided by Sotogrande-Marbella, all the while maintaining a vibrant and joyful atmosphere, coupled with the tranquility offered by areas of low population density.
The measure of luxury extends to the daily pleasures one experiences, whether savoring a glass of wine while watching the sunset at the Marina, indulging in a sumptuous meal at an exquisite Michelin-starred restaurant, or preparing a home-cooked meal using fresh, premium ingredients.
Sunsets that could be yours.
