Costa del Sol
" Southern Costa del Sol "
A place to be happy: quality of life, good weather, health, safety and well-being
The southern part of the Costa del Sol, between Gibraltar and Marbella, is less of a tourist-filled destination resulting in it being more familiar and welcoming. It has an average of 320 days of sunshine per year and merges the beautiful Andalusian essence with a friendly and diverse cosmopolitan community that resides or spends its holidays here. In general, the feeling is that people are happy on the Costa del Sol, so, acquiring a property in it is synonymous with successful investment in every way. Surely you can find your dream home here!
Living in this beautiful stretch of coastline offers the resident kilometers of virgin beaches, beautiful natural landscapes, a climate and gastronomy unique in the world, total security and incredible leisure in environments of natural elegance. In short, a place where people from all over the world want to reside or retire enjoying an incomparable quality of life, a unique climate in Europe and a privileged location just a couple of hours from the main European capitals thanks to the proximity of Malaga, Gibraltar, Jerez or Seville airports.
We also speak, and without a doubt, of a paradise for sports and a healthy lifestyle. The Southern Costa del Sol, also known as Costa del Golf, has more than 70 golf courses, academies, and world-famous tennis and paddle tennis clubs, equestrian centers and endless cultural opportunities.
Its natural environment also combines, in a unique way, little or no tourist beaches with beautiful mountain landscapes. The Natural Park of the Alcornocales houses the largest forest in the Mediterranean and, next to the Pinar del Rey de San Roque, the Sierra Bermeja de Estepona or the Concha de Marbella, among other magical places, offer wonderful hiking trails and walks. In addition, it is very easy to organize from here a wide variety of excursions and getaways: Granada, Sierra Nevada for skiing, Tarifa and its surroundings, Córdoba, Seville or Cádiz are just a few minutes away by car.
A place, second to none, that has all the ingredients for a life of enjoyment and good health!
Sotogrande is one of the most exclusive urbanizations in Europe. It was created at the beginning of the 60s and has been developing discreetly since then from the initial 50 mansions to more than 5.000 homes today. Extending on some 2,200 hectares from the beach to inland, it is the perfect definition about a magical lifestyle within an environment of privacy and exclusivity. A special place where Spaniards from different parts of Spain and foreigners, from all over the world, coexist with residents in a friendly and relaxed environment. Sotogrande is a beautiful, elegant and discreet place. Beyond the Marina, with 1400 berths and its charming promenade with restaurants, shops, cafes, and bars, you can breathe here, peace and quietness.

The Alcaidesa is a jewel built on a hill at the foot of the beach. It is an urbanization located between La Linea de la Concepción (8 km) and Sotogrande (10 km) with some of the most spectacular views of the Costa del Sol and the African coast.

San Roque Club
This exclusive urbanization located a couple of km from Alcaidesa and only a few more from Sotogrande is the closest thing to paradise for every golf lover. The former summer residence of the Domecq family, the image of the cork oaks and hills of the place that houses it, is something unforgettable.
