THE CHARM OF SOTOGRANDE

Sotogrande is often referred to as the ‘Beverly Hills’ of Spain and it’s easy to see why some of the most affluent families in the country own homes here. With its upmarket port filled with beautiful yachts, long winding streets with magnificent villas and top class amenities, it is truly a special place.

A walk around the sophisticated marina makes for the perfect way to spend an afternoon in Sotogrande. Here you can admire the yachts bobbing up and down in the winter sunshine against the backdrop of the Mediterranean Sea meeting the Atlantic Ocean. Turn your attention away from the water and you can browse the chic boutique stores to find the latest fashion and treat yourself to something a little unique. When hunger strikes, there are many portside restaurants and coffee shops where you can indulge your taste buds with some of the best seafood in Spain.

The social scene in Sotogrande

Sotogrande is famous for its golf courses and polo fields; each year the International Land Rover Polo Tournament is held at The Santa Mariá Polo Club, which attracts a large number of the sport’s aficionados from around the globe. The area is also a delight for golf lovers and is often described as Europe’s top golfing destination. Not surprisingly, it is home to some of the best courses in Spain—Real Club Valderrama, famous for hosting the 1997 Ryder Cup, is also consistently ranked the number one course in continental Europe. The Real Club de Golf Sotogrande, opened in 1964, remains a top quality facility and La Reserva is at the heart of the latest exciting development plans for the area. The excellent weather that the south of Spain enjoys all year round provides the idyllic setting for playing golf in these beautiful environs.polo sotogrande, hansa realty

The evenings here are imbued with a peaceful family atmosphere; the port is the hub of Sotogrande’s social scene and pre-dinner drinks can be enjoyed at one of the trendy bars before dining with friends and family at one of the popular restaurants.
