Sotogrande is a little slice of paradise in the South of Spain, within easy reach of the airports in Malaga, Gibraltar and Jerez, the beaches of the Costa del Sol and the Costa de la Luz and the cosmopolitan and cultural hotspots of Marbella and Malaga. It is set in beautiful countryside, with low density building and incredible views.
A magnet for high fliers and discerning buyers since the 1960s, Sotogrande has built a reputation for incredible sports facilities, luxury, exclusivity, privacy and security. It was modelled on the exclusive Forbes Park development in Manila and is the largest privately owned residential development in Andalusia. As a gated community, Sotogrande as a whole is safe and secure, with friendly security teams patrolling the streets and open spaces in order to check everything is in order.
Within Sotogrande itself there has been a demand for smaller, more exclusive gated communities such as Los Altos de Valderrama. Sotogrande S.A. has responded to additional demand from non-golfers and families seeking heightened security, beautiful views and a wide range of services and privileges by creating a series of distinctive gated communities. These are located in the La Reserva, high in the Andalusian hills, nestled in and overlooking nature reserves and of course out to the Mediterranean Sea. These four luxury gated communities are perfectly placed in their stunning landscape and surrounded by the exceptional amenities and service to be found at Europe’s finest country club – La Reserva Club.
Home to a championship golf course, a racquet club, a beach club in the hills and two excellent restaurants, this is a haven for families who want the best facilities on their doorstep and stunning properties to boot.
Each community has its own style and architectural personality, yet all share the same benefits – 24-hour security, concierge and lifestyle service, privileges at La Reserva Club’s sports and leisure facilities and proximity to one of Spain’s leading International Schools, Sotogrande International School. In this article, we’re going to tell you more about these four gated communities in Sotogrande and the properties which are for sale
The Seven is a collection of seven unique properties, with unrivalled views across the Mediterranean and up into the hills of Andalusia. Each has been designed by a different, highly regarded international architect. These spectacular villas are set in 10 hectares of carefully landscaped parkland, brought to life by Jean Mus. Each property has its own hectare of grounds, to ensure privacy and discretion and enable the properties to perfectly sit within their surroundings. Buyers can choose from a wide range of architectural styles, from the Brazilian modernist architecture in The Kogan Villa, with its spectacular veranda, to the Scandinavian minimalism of The Martin Loff Villa, to the Viking spirit of The Jensen Villa, these properties really have the wow factor!
