THE STORY OF SOTOGRANDE

The Life. Since 1962.

 

How a corner of Andalucía became a home from home for the world’s elite — where the living is as glamorous as the days are easy.

MARINA

One of the jewels of Sotogrande is its stunning marina, the heart of this area’s sailing community and a wonderful place to eat, drink and shop.

Marina Sotogrande is the heart of Sotogrande’s buzzing sailing and boating community, hundreds of berths for boats of all shapes and sizes. It is situated at the eastern entrance of the Strait of Gibraltar, the point where two continents meet, Dubbed the ‘little Venice of the Mediterranean’, it is a pretty complex of tree-lined canals and bridges sitting directly next to the marina apartments.

WATER SPORTS

From kayaking and kitesurfing to wakeboarding and diving, Sotogrande water sports fans are sport for choice in Sotogrande, which also plays host to various regattas.

The winds that roll in to the coast of Southern Spain have long made Sotogrande popular with sailors.

FISHING

Experience Mediterranean fishing at its finest in the rich waters of the Mediterranean off the coast of Southern Spain.

Deep-sea fishing is world renown in this area thanks to the Gibraltar Straight offering a unique setting for many species and including the famous Barbarte Tuna. The Marina Sotogrande is home to several charter companies offering memorable experiences with friends and family. Do not hesitate to reach out to one of them to plan your fishing expedition and create memorable moments.

SOTOGRANDE AND HORSES A LIFELONG LOVE AFFAIR

The Sotogrande lifestyle has always been focused around a love for horses; from chukkas on the polo fields to sunrise hacks along the coast, horseriding is a popular activity for both residents and visitors alike. The Sotogrande Equestrian Club, Hipica hosts a charming set of stables and offers equestrian facilities that cater for all abilities from young kids to adults, beginners to the most experienced of riders.

DRIVE IN STYLE WITH THE ICONIC MINI MOKE

The Jolly Mile, the locally established brand that takes us back to the golden age of Sotogrande, offers the chance to experience sea, sunshine and scenery by renting one of their original and classic Mini Mokes. Motor along palm tree lined avenues, hopping on and off as you wish to visit the trendy shops. Feel the breeze on your face as you head off from the hills. Relax on the beaches and enjoy the fine Mediterranean cuisine in the many bars and restaurants.

This truly is the most exciting and stylish way to discover Sotogrande. Contact our concierge service to organise your Mini Moke for you.

MOUNTAIN BIKING

Discover the old Andalucía on meandering bike trips, opening up the land at the bucolic pace it deserves. Mountain biking reveals the unseen side of this varied natural landscape, through mint-covered countryside, along trails that hug the sea. Within Sotogrande’s 1,500 hectares own nature preserve, one can go off-road for rocky climbs and adrenalin-filled descents, along riverbanks and waterfalls edged by limestone and violet candytuft flowers. You can bike to the old village of Castellar de la Frontera, or explores 1,800kms of disused railway lines transformed into traffic-free greenways or ‘vías verdes’. These offer a family-friendly way to explore the hidden Andalucía — one which hasn’t much changed over the last hundred years. Cycle or horse ride the well-loved paths or, for the more adventurous, carve fresh trails through sun-kissed landscape.

DISCOVER ANDALUCIA

From dancing stallions and flamenco to traditional leatherwork and picturesque white-washed villages, Andalucía is quintessential Spain. From the Great Mosque of Cordoba to the museums and Picasso Foundation in Malaga, there is an abundance of locations to explore and Sotogrande is the perfect place to start. From here, you can visit the extraordinary cathedral in Seville with ease, enjoy wine-tasting in Jerez, discover Alhambra’s Moorish past or take up kitesurfing on Tarifa’s golden shores. With over 40,000 hectares of vineyards in Andalucía, the area is renowned for adventurous wine-tasting. Equally famous for a love of food, this part of Spain is the perfect place to sample authentic Spanish foods, from fresh fish with Mediterranean flavours to Arabic-influenced dishes.
