Sotogrande has everything; it is simply one of the great resort destinations of the world.
Founded in the early 1960s, with no expense spared, it provides sporting challenges of the highest order. Three of Europe´s best golf courses, with the iconic Royal Valderrama as the crown jewel, sit among houses lining broad leafy avenues giving the greatest sense of space and style. Polo attracts the finest players in the world in August and sailing and golf frequently attracts world championship events. Inland, beautiful mature vegetation of cork oaks and pine woods abound.
The Big Boom of Sotogrande has arrived.
All of us who live here know what a special place Sotogrande is and those of us whose business it is to promote Sotogrande and sell property naturally extol its virtues on a regular and constant basis. For the last months there has been a wonderful and very special atmosphere in Sotogrande Marina and Port with bar and restaurant terraces heaving with people, happy to be out and about, friends and families enjoying each other´s company. At the weekends you often have to reserve or you will find yourself disappointed that no table is available in your favourite restaurant. Visitors can’t believe the contrast between life here and the city they come from. As more and more visitors arrive from other parts of Spain and from abroad, they will all be acutely aware of this contrast and, like us, appreciate more than ever the atmosphere and beautiful natural surrounds of Sotogrande.
Sotogrande is going to offer even more to visitors, residents and we hope subsequently buyers, who will see how Sotogrande is such an attractive environment in which to live or holiday. The new 5 Star Grand Luxury SO/Sotogrande hotel from Sofitel which is a dramatically refurbished and extended version of the old Almenara Hotel. The golf course is also being upgraded and will have a separate clubhouse. Finally Sotogrande will have a flag bearing hotel to match and even beat Finca Cortesin to whom we have frustratingly lost too many potential buyers over the last few years.
We are seeing very serious investment by Sotogrande, S.A. and should count ourselves lucky that Sotogrande finally has an owner who has the vision and financial capacity to take the resort to new and exciting levels. For years there has been nowhere to match it in Spain but now we are looking at Sotogrande as a development which we will finally be ranked among the very best in the world. We must all market Sotogrande as individuals, businesses and as a community: we must support everything that is being done and encourage our friends to buy in this unique destination. With the feelings that I have which are expressed at the beginning of this blog and all the investment and highest level construction I see around me, We firmly believe we are about to enter the Big Boom of Sotogrande.
Sotogrande has everything, “as the only one of its kind”, whether you live here or are just visiting. What else? Add to this the highest class tennis and equestrian facilities and the sporting picture is complete. Always centered around family life, Sotogrande is discreet, secure and private. Even the Marina, with it´s beautiful apartments overlooking the sea or meandering waterways, has a sophisticated and gentle feel about it whilst also offering superb restaurants and bars. Attention is now focused on La Reserva where something really unique is being created with a community of extraordinary homes with the superbly appointed La Reserva Club at its heart. Come and visit us soon in our amazing weather by the Mediterranean Sea.
