With Hanukah, Christmas, New Year and Reyes (Epiphany) to celebrate, this festive season is all about family. There is a huge range of different properties to choose from in Sotogrande and the surrounding areas—from romantic pied-à-terre boltholes, perfectly designed for couples seeking escape, to sprawling contemporary mansions with large glass windows and shining white walls, ideal for chic cocktail parties and sophisticated entertaining.
However, families wanting to make the most of the festive season—in comfort at home but close to markets, special holiday events, celebrations and restaurants—tend to have a different set of priorities when choosing their home in Spain. So imagine, if you will, some of these spectacular family homes dressed for the holidays and full of excited family chatter and cheer!
Already oozing traditional charm and character, this exceptional cortijo style villa would look amazing with some festive styling. The huge country kitchen is made for large and noisy family gatherings and there’s plenty of accommodation for visitors, with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms, including a two-bedroom guest cottage. Situated on an extensive plot of 8,000m2, there’s plenty of space to enjoy as well as stabling, so scope for creating riding facilities although the Ayala and Santa María Polo clubs are very close by as well. Rustic charm at its very best.
Slightly more modest, this five-bedroom family home is conveniently located right in the heart of Sotogrande Costa. Walking distance from the beach and golf course, you’ll be in the best place to make the most of all that’s on offer in Sotogrande over the holiday season. The mature gardens surrounding the villa ensure a family’s privacy at home while the brand new kitchen diner is superb for feeding the children and catching up on their news day today.
The golfers in the family will love the golf and sea views from this five bedroom family home located on popular Almenara golf, not far from the renowned Sotogrande International School. The dining room could have been purpose-designed to host festive family banquets and the additional reception rooms are all warm and inviting. The underfloor heating and heated pool are just two of the features that make this property ideal for all year round living for families with children looking for a brilliantly safe and secure residential location.
Of course, a property in Sotogrande is not just for Christmas alone, but the holiday season is an important aspect of life in Spain where the significance of family is first and foremost.
