More than anywhere else on the Costa del Sol, Sotogrande represents the classic country club way of life. This is perhaps not surprising, given that the luxury seaside resort community was founded along American lines, with an effective master plan that outlined its development and ensured the first class infrastructure, enjoyable space and architectural integrity that Sotogrande now enjoys. Indeed, it is the quality of these elements that makes this part of Spain’s southern coastline stand out, and at the heart of it all are the country clubs around which Sotogrande is built.
Around the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande
This area, known as the ‘Kings and Queens’ for the names of its peaceful leafy streets, is the first of the country club settings of Sotogrande and also the main one on the coastal side of the A7 road. Here you will find luxury villas surrounded by generously proportioned gardens on what is largely level land ensconced between the sandy shore, the Real Club de Golf Sotogrande and the grounds of the equally renowned Santa María Polo club.
A classic country club in an exclusive gated community in which luxurious homes are ranged along the verdant undulations of a prestigious golf course. The clubhouse forms the hub of local social life as well as offering on-your-doorstep amenities such as bar, restaurant, lounge areas, meeting rooms, pro shop, driving range, putting range and professional coaching facilities. Many even include a beauty salon and some come complete with a spa, so membership entitles one to a true country club lifestyle, and in the case of Almenara this also includes a luxurious spa resort hotel.
Valderrama is home to one of the most distinguished golf clubs in the game and as such the corresponding residential area offers not just stylish villas and apartments with luxury amenities close by, but also a truly prestigious address. Not surprisingly this is one of the most sought-after luxury residential areas in Sotogrande
