Affluent residents of New York often centre their thoughts on the tranquility of vacation time in The Hamptons, to help alleviate the stresses accrued in their busy daily lives. The beautiful coastal communities located on Long Island have become the essential second home location for city dwellers, providing the perfect destination for a weekend trip or long summer break.
Located approximately ninety minutes’ drive from New York’s cosmopolitan centre, the scenery of The Hamptons is not only picturesque and peaceful, but replete with first class facilities. House owners with a taste for the good life have access to fine dining, designer boutiques and trendy bars alongside the beautiful beaches of the region.
Investors searching for a Spanish Hamptons on the Costa del Sol should investigate Sotogrande as their first port of call. The area is now considered one of the most prestigious residential addresses in Europe, understandably so, and second for many of the same reasons that The Hamptons are so popular in the US.
Sotogrande was founded in the early 1960s by developers who had real aspirations for it to become one of the finest, most stylish resorts in the world. Today the development has achieved their high expectations and attracts new residents due to it’s scenery, facilities, famous yachting marina and international sporting events.
Sotogrande’s prime situation, only a half hour drive to the cosmopolitan centres of Marbella and Puerto Banús, is framed by cork forests, sandy beaches and the striking green fairways of world class golf courses. As Sotogrande has grown over the years it has consistently adhered to strict building controls that ensure low building densities and a respect for the natural beauty of it’s privileged surroundings.
With a high-end infrastructure similar to that of The Hamptons, residents of Sotogrande also have access to five-star restaurants, designer shopping and first-class services. However, Sotogrande has two distinct advantages over its American cousin: you don’t have to navigate traffic jams and crowded roads to reach it, and the climate here is wonderful throughout most of the year.
