Ever since the 1960s, Sotogrande has been a byword for legendary, bringing an international roll call of the great and good to party and play in the southern Spanish sunshine. Today, the lifestyle on offer is better than ever and nowhere is that more apparent than at La Reserva Club, a 400-hectare slice of natural paradise high in the Andalusian hills.
La Reserva Club is a secure country club where intimate gated residential communities and exceptional facilities are designed to fulfil residents’ every need. There’s the majesty of The Seven and The Fifteen, unique elevated plots in scented Provençal gardens, and the free-flowing, California-inspired architecture of The Lagoon Villas. Villas at El Mirador, now all sold, overlook La Reserva Club’s golf course while Village Verde, La Reserva Club’s newest addition, offer airy open-plan apartments and penthouses.
La Reserva Club provides residents of all these select communities with round-the-clock security, expert maintenance services and a highly- skilled concierge team. Together it’s a compelling combination offering peace of mind, convenience and hassle-free home ownership.
For residents, it provides the time to fully immerse themselves in La Reserva’s easy-breezy sporting lifestyle.
