DARE TO LIVE SOTOGRANDE
Sotogrande is elegant and allows you a change of pace, permitting you to enjoy time without the pressures of daily routines. In this luxury urbanisation, where you can enjoy Mediterranean weather year-round, where a unique lifestyle is on offer. Possibilities are endless, privacy and security are a premium… a perfect place to rest completely in peace and quiet.
Sailing, horse riding, polo, golf, tennis, and paddle would be considered Sotogrande’s main sporting pillars. However, over the years, with better roads and communications infrastructure, good medical facilities, and a well above average international school, the urbanisation has become a place to enjoy year-round with permanent residents’ numbers increasing steadily.
You could visit Sotogrande for a month and not need to leave the estate. Many people do. Activities you can participate in are many. If you are sporty, within the 2000-hectare estate you can enjoy the golf clubs, play polo, go sailing, go boating, go to the beach to sunbathe or surf or kite surf, play paddle and tennis, ride your bike for exercise and go riding to the Hipica park.
Once you are done with sports you can enjoy the many coffee shops and bars, and the variety of restaurants available.
….RELAX, then REPEAT.
Exploring Andalucía is a very rewarding experience. Sevilla, Cordoba, and Malaga are major cities with rich history and therefore much culture. Places like the Alhambra in Granada are world class tourist venues.
Day trips to Ski above Granada in the winter are very common. The drive is a comfortably within two and half hours.
We all talk about seeing Africa from Sotogrande. Well, it is also possible to visit. Either on a day trip to Tangiers or take a few days and drive to Marrakesh, the quintessential Moroccan town.
Marbella: For a change of scene, and particularly night life you can drive to Marbella, just 30 minutes away by car. Puerto Banus is not everyone’s idea of a fun place, but if you are looking for a wild night out it is there for the taking.
Tarifa: Used to be the European capital city for surfers. Today we still see surfing, but wind surfing, kite surfing and now wing surfing are all are all the rage. And if you do not surf, then the beaches are amazing, and the bars and restaurants also worth the visit.
Gibraltar: Just 20 minutes away is the British enclave of Gibraltar. Regular flights to the UK and maybe soon to other European cities if the Schengen treaty extension currently under negotiation permits.
Gaucin, Casares or Castellar: Andalucía is well known for its white villages. A drive up into the hills is a great way to spend a Sunday, stopping to enjoy spectacular views, and having lunch in one of the number of restaurants available.
