Sotogrande is the largest privately owned residential development in Andalusia.
It is located in the municipality of San Roque in the Province of Cádiz along the Mediterranean coast. Sotogrande is conveniently located east of Gibraltar, less than a 10 minutes’ drive. Many who work in Gibraltar, live in Sotogrande. This particular region offers spectacular views of the Mediterranean, the rock of Gibraltar and Morocco a mere 15 kilometres south across the sea.
Sotogrande is one of the most prestigious areas in Spain. Some of the world’s richest and most powerful families own homes in this spectacular location, including the royal family of Spain and the United Kingdom as well as powerful leaders from Russia and other countries.
Current and past regulars and inhabitants of Sotogrande include Peter Caruana, former Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Fabian Picardo, current Chief Minister of Gibraltar, Tony Blair, Emilio Botín, Anan Rosa Quintana, Mike Gwilym, Vladimir Gusinsky, Boris Berezovsky, as well as Prince Louis Alponse, Duke of Anjou.
Sotogrande was created by the couple, Joseph McMicking and Mercedes Zóbel from the Philippines along with the support of their two nephews, Jaime and Enrique Zóbel. The idea was to build a Palm Beach in southern Europe.
In 1962, the McMickings, bought five neighbouring farms with the idea of creating a luxurious residential development by the Mediterranean. Over the years, the couple built what is considered one of the most luxurious urbanizations in Europe. In May 2006 Sotogrande was featured in The Times as the area home to the most expensive real estate in Europe. There are a number of artificial lakes and five golf courses, including the all famous Valderrama Golf Club, created by Jaime Ortiz-Patiñoand the San Roque course. The colourful, luxurious leisure port was completed in 1988.
Sotogrande is well known as an architectural paradise for lovers of architecture, boasting luxury in an array of different styles and wonderful caches, influenced by a mix of traditional Andalusian art, 21st century design and a stylish Moorish touch. Wherever you look, be it the spectacular nature of the area or its phenomenal architecture, views are breath-taking. In 2008 the local government declared three buildings of cultural interest, protecting them from reform or demolition. These architectural gems are the Biddle House, by Francisco Javier Carvajal, the Zóbel house by José Antonio Coderch and the Real Club de Golf designed by Luis Gutierrez Soto.
